I set up both Fedora 8 and Centos 5 on the X61 to reacquaint myself to the Red Hat way of doing things after using Debian-based distributions for some time.

Message 2 of 4. Another reason is that I want a good balance of small footprint and performance.
Unsupported Version This article applies to an unsupported version of Ubuntu. I recently purchased a new Lenovo X61 laptop to run Linux for work.

The laptop came with Vista preinstalled. I tried to do so with UNetbootin run from Debian but I must have screwed something up because I was left with an unbootable system: Is there a way to get the config file that is used by Ubuntu when it is demoing?
The built-in Wacom tablet is a nice, but I find I rarely use it, especially since the fine handwriting-recognition software from Microsoft is not available in Linux. This time I think the system board is gone, as there are no signs of life. Tableg might be the only Tablet PC-related thing which works on Linux without wasting time just to get it work. The X61 is a nice piece of hardware. Is there an active community of Linux users for X61T or just Thinkpads in general? Note UNetbootin is a similar program for Ubuntu, but Vista support is still in the works.
Debian-based distributions are still my favourites, so I will continue to use Ubuntu as my primary OS on this laptop.
There was one small hiccup. Thursday, November 8, Linux on a Thinkpad X ThinkWiki is a good site for setting up Linux on Thinkpads.
Not only that, but it is orders of magnitude faster and smoother than any other system I use. Audio Streaming over Bluetooth I decided to purchase a Thinkpad X61 instead of a replacement system board.
Not only is it slow, but every few actions, everything grinds to a halt until I handle some dialog box lnovo giving permission to some process or other. Perhaps Microsoft is not entirely to blame, as some of the pop-ups are plastered with the Lenovo logo. Power Loss in laptop mode could lead to significant data loss.
Mission Accomplished My laptop is now usable.
However, Wacom works just fine in Linux. But the latest version works out of the box. Register Sign In Help.
Message 1 of 4. But most importantly, Thinkpads have a good track record with Linux support.
