result: also useless...
... there MUST be a better solution -- emperor.linux has a fully functioning version of any flavor of linux on the x60.tablet, which seems to include handwriting recognition. not yet worth the $300...
(BTW... volume/mute buttons on keyboard work just fine. further, bluetooth works great, just install kde tool + bluez )
sad; but, here is a reminder of what we ALL should be doing -- right?
but, if you REALLY need to find some files (once the box has dried out)... i seriously recommend one of the live linux discs/usb -- which even work on mac hardware!

the 'cat' experiment, as discussed in class was originally cited by Mr. St. George Mivart in his book "The Cat" (1881). He mentioned a case where a female cat had her tail badly injured when a cart-wheel ran over it and the owner judged it best to amputate the whole tail. Since then, the female had had two litters of kittens, and in each litter some of the kittens had a stump of tail, while the others had full-length tails.
as far as russia goes: i intended to refer to lysenko, who revived the long-discarded ideas of lamarkism in russia. indeed, genetics had been declared a 'bourgeois pseudoscience' in the Soviet Union in 1948 which persisted though the mid 1960s, lysenkoism was found to have caused mass starvation and serious, long-term harm to Soviet agriculture -- though it appeased the communist rulers of the time.
e.g., wireless, power, sound, sleep/suspend, dynamic cpu, etc.
i also don't hear any of the 'whining' or 'clunking' referred to by others.
install additional software via mandriva software manager:
- acpi tools
- setserial pkg
- configure-thinkpad pkg
- wacom pkg
follow instructions... to install in prebuilt subdirectory,
edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf per http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Installing_Ubuntu_6.10_on_a_ThinkPad_X41_Tablet
edit rc.local per http://luke.no-ip.org/x60tablet/
don't forget to chmod 755 the x60t-swivel* files
add your userid to sudoers file
(this is REALLY important; and a little detail 'missing' from some of the other sites.)
rotate command works from the terminal, but keycodes seem to be incorrect in all those files:
get xev, since acpi_listen doesn't seem to work/compile in mandriva.
[xev does not identify the 'sound' keys or any key on the display..... ]
that works ok for keyboard; but not for other 'switches' on the tablet panel.
tail -f /var/log/messages
then.. press all nonfunctioning keys.
this gives you the rotate/tools/esc key on the panel (but no others).
add to /etc/rc.local file
still no joy... try:
su -c "/home/gfb1/Applications/getscancodes /dev/input/event0"
(sudo -- if you use ubuntu)
FINALLY; here's the problem.
the tablet and the keyboard are 2 different devices. BUT -- the keycodes overlap. so, i suppose i need to reassign different keycodes via "setkeycodes" in rc.local file.
more to come ...
there is an interesting set of articles surrounding the individual
genome sequencing of craig.venter and jim.watson!
i really can't decide if this is extreme
open-sourcing; or, just a sophisticated way of mooning
either way, it borders on the ... (dare i type it?!?) .. c-omic-al ...
