{mosimage} In this article I'll break my style and write in english since its aimed to describe my experience with a laptop Compaq nc6220 and FreeBSD-7.0-PRERELEASE. Hopefully it can be a source of information for further reference.

This a standard laptop from the company (Ericsson). It isn't exactly powerfull but can help you to have your work done. It's equiped with:

  • Processor Pentium Mobile 1.73 GHz
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 40 GB Hard-disk
  • 14" screen
  • bluetooth
  • 3 usb ports
  • serial port
  • vga and s-video outputs
  • CD/DVD reader (yes, reader-only)
  • SD Memory card reader
  • Gigabit Ethernet port
  • Internal Modem

I found some other descriptions mismatching my configuration. It's probably because its a corporate machine and better improvements like wi-fi and CD writer were just removed. Sad but that's my reality.

Initially I installed FreeBSD-6.0 on it. Since then I've coming upgrading, over and over. I was running FreeBSD-6.3-RC1 when I decide to move on, for FreeBSD-7.0 (CURRENT at that time). As any upgrade, it was painfull.

I could use alternative hardware for a few purpouses, like a PCMCIA interface for Wi-Fi, but some internal parts didn't work at all. I was force to completely disable ACPI since it was hanging it each 15 seconds. I found unplug the power cable could fix it, but it was an annoying task to be done frequently. I could found some discussions about this issue,. but no effective fix was provided until now.

Right now the current status follows:

  • Wi-Fi via DWL-G650 (D-Link): working with if_ath.ko
  • Sound board Intel 82830M/MG AC '97:working with snd_ich.ko
  • Video card Intel 82915GM (915GM GMCH): working with i810 driver (xorg)
  • ACPI: not working (In fact you must disable it at all)
  • Gigabit Ethernet Interface: working with bge driver
  • SD Card Reader: not working
  • Internal modem: not working

If you could go further then me, don't hesitate to share your success :-)
