Acer Ferrari
Ferrari 1000

* Hangs on bootup, loading ALSA drivers “ALSA sound/pci/hda/hda_codec.c: 204: hda_codec: invalid dep_range_vol 0:7fff”

(Note: Is there a way to skip the alsa drivers from loading? i don’t really need sound)
Try the solution stated for Aspire 3102WLMi, that have the same problem, and edit here if it works.

Ferrari 4005 WLMi

* Boots fine into KDE/flux with no configuration needed
* Sound does not work correctly (distorting etc..)
* Detects onboard ethernet & broadcom wireless devices

Acer Aspire
Aspire 1350

* Works fine without extra parameters

No, it need to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

1. At the section “Monitor”
2. add

HorizSync 31.5 – 48.5 VertRefresh 59.0 – 75.0

1. At the subsection “Display with depth 24”
2. add

Modes “1024×768” “800×600”
Aspire 1355

* Works fine without extra parameters

Aspire 1520

* Needs the “irqpoll” kernel option at the boot to support cardbus cards (tested with D-Link DWL-G650 rev. C3).

E.g. “bt irqpoll”

* No built-in wireless card, so WiFi compatibility depends on the PCMCIA or USB device you use.

Aspire 3102WLMi

* Hangs on bootup, loading ALSA drivers “ALSA sound/pci/hda/hda_codec.c: 204: hda_codec: invalid dep_range_vol 0:7fff”

(Note: You can get it to boot up by using ‘bt debug’ at the boot prompt!)

Aspire 3628AWXMI

* Runs fine with no extra prarameters
* i have change the build in centrino wlan (IPW2200) to a atheros modul and packet injection rocks

:)

Aspire 3680, 3690 + Aspire 5512 wlmi

* Runs fine with no extra parameters.
* detect wireless
* just the screen doesn’t the right widescreen resolusion but still usable (Aspire 5512 wlmi tested ati.lzm but still nothing)

Aspire 1692 WLMi

* Runs fine with no extra parameters.
* detect IPW2200
* Packet Injection with IPW2200 is possible!

* widescreen auto detected and displays at 1280×800
* AR5BXB63 aka ath5007EG works great, injects (have not tried wep/wpa)
* hsfmodem can’t figure out, pretty sure its /dev/ttyS2 (HDAUDIO) anyhelp would be appreciated (i like war dialing)

– note too self dont fucking touch hsfmodem package or linuxant ever agian it likes to bring any install to its knees fuck them

and their drivers /me sticks gum in the modem port and tries to forget it exists

Aspire 5051AWXMi

* Hangs on bootup, loading ALSA drivers “ALSA sound/pci/hda/hda_codec.c: 204: hda_codec: invalid dep_range_vol 0:7fff”.

(Note: Will test leaving as per 5101AWLMi and boot options ‘bt debug’ as per 3102WLMi)

Tried on 5051AWXMi today, hung on the above 5-10mins later booted to prompt.
Aspire 5100

* Also hangs on bootup, wait for a few minutes. You will see the hda_codec.c error for a while (6 minutes on this one), and then it boots up fine.
* Built in atheros 5005g wireless card works flawlessly for injection/sniffing and every other task I’ve tried.
* Note: The currently used Aspire 5100 has a AR5007EG Atheros card, NOT a 5005g. BackTrack does not automatically detect the card.
* If you do a HDD install, you can remove the hda_codec.c (from another OS, I did it from ubuntu), it still hangs a tad on bootup, but about 1/10 of the time (Make sure you remove the right file, and by remove, I mean copy it to another location, then delete the original)

Aspire 5101AWLMi

* Hangs on bootup, loading ALSA drivers “ALSA sound/pci/hda/hda_codec.c: 204: hda_codec: invalid dep_range_vol 0:7fff”, but just keep it running for like 10 minutes and it will start just fine.

* Loads in 640*480 can’t make any larger on mine
* Sometimes gets the IO 104 error
* “IO error 104”. Just run: rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf
* Belkin f5d7010v7 and Hawking hwc54g didn’t detect
* startx command failed due to inconfigurable monitor
* IMPORTANT UPDATE for this model: Load latest BIOS firmware of A32, then set Video memory from 1 to 8 MB in BIOS. X will now run XGA and fill then entire screen. The best Linux distro to run on this Dell Inspiron.

Inspiron 1150

* Runs fairly well, needs to detect graphics before launching GUI

I have found that just removing the X11 config file allows my 1150 to get past the “IO error 104”. Just run: rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Inspiron 1420

* Tested with 128MB nVidia 8400GM S Video Card. Works great. Use xconf before using startx and you are all set.
* This model came with an Intel PRO Wireless 3945abg WiFi Card. Great for injection with the IPWRAW drivers.

Inspiron 1501

* Runs fine with no extra parameters.
* Had to remove vga from boot parameters. Turned off acpi (acpi=off), otherwise hangs during boot up process.

Inspiron 1521

* Core 2 Duo works like a charm
* Needs NISWrapper for Broadcom BCMWL5.INF

Inspiron 1300

* Needs command: “bt acpi=off” – otherwise, gets a blackscreen.
* Wifi didnt even work for me ! big problem.
* My B130 loads fine with the above mentioned “bt acpi=off”
* WIFI is Broadcom 43xx will monitor but not inject (unstable power yada yada)

* Runs fine with no extra parameters.

Inspiron 9400

* First tests indicate that it runs fine with no extra parameters. Load 3945 has to be used before the built-in wireless interface can be used (the wireless interface seems to appears as eth1). Note: the wireless interface will only be detected if it’s not disabled via the “hardware switch” (Fn+F2). The WiFi indicator light will flash when the wireless interface is enabled (unlike the behaviour under Windows, where it is steadily lit when WiFi is enabled). It may be additionally required to start the interface via ifconfig eth1 up.

Inspiron XPS Gen 1

* Works with this laptop.
* did not get deAuth to work; injection might not work on (BCM 4320) or deAuth might not work because I’m a NOOB.

Inspiron XPS Gen 2

* Works perfectly with this laptop.
* No extra parameters needed.

Inspiron 6400

Works good with ipw3945 drivers I load BT from USB flash drive and all is O.K.

does not autodetect wireless interface
Inspiron 630m

* Needs command: “bt acpi=off” – otherwise, gets a blackscreen

i got blackscreen also with this command…and i had windows xp boot failure after reboot
Inspiron 640m

Does not run fine

* Small problem with booting I mean not detecting bluetooth device (Dell TrueMobile 355 Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR module)
* Monitoring mode all right but no packet injection is possible

Latitude
Latitude CPI xx

* CPI A400XT works fine with boot option : bt irqpoll

Latitude C600

* Seems to work perfectly with no extra parameters or configuration, never had any problems with any Linux Distro but i have never tried to use the infrared, serial, com or dock ports.
* I have been having trouble getting it to boot; I get a freeze at the “starting USB support…” line. I am re-burning the iso as a test. Will update. Edit: Yay it works with “bt irqpoll”! Also, hard drive install works.

Latitude D420

* Works perfectly with ipw3945 drivers

Latitude D505

* Should make use of the “A09” BIOS rev. while running a LINUX environment. Although there actually are other (newly updated) versions alike the “A11” BIOS. Other BIOS versions rather than “A09”, that is available at DELL:s homepage for download, seems to be incompatible with the X server-driver further known as “I810”.
* –Update–: xconf will test + setup the xorg server to work with i810. I have not tried running x with 1MB shared memory but instead 8MB which works great.
* For those who want to get the built-in modem working:

Do lspci -n| grep 8086:24c6

*
o If you see it listed then you are in luck, the driver you would need is Linuxant HSF modem driver. The usage of the driver is free but limited to 14.4k however if you pay for license you can utilize it fully.
o For those that do not have any details of it returned to them, you will need to download this: http://132.68.73.235/linmodems/packages/scanModem.gz and run it as root.

Latitude D510

* Boots Live and installs on hard drive perfectly (also dual and multi boot -MacOS, Vista, XP, BT).
* Works good with ipw2200 drivers.
* ONLY Aireplay-ng [“–interactive”,”–arpreplay”,”–chopchop”] options work, due to an ipw2200 limitation. Nevertheless Wep and Wpa cracking are posible in little time with those little injection options. See ip2200.

Latitude D520

* Works perfectly with ipw3945 drivers
* Runs on Centrino Duo with no extra parameters.

Latitude D531

* Boots Live and installs on hard drive perfectly (also dual boot -XP, BT).

Latitude D600

* Doesn’t run fine, tested with 2 D600 –> startx fails

BT2 final: startx works fine on my D600

Work Fine on my Latitude D600 BT2 final boot on USB

Toughbook CF-M34

P3-400/192M ram Runs sweet on this tiny toughbook, with following params or exeptions:

* Edit XF86.config to force the display to run at 800×600, else it tries to run at 1024×768
* For some odd reason `startx` starts fluxbox instead of KDE on this machine, the workaround is to type `xdm` at the login screen.
* Sound works with no further configuration.
* Modem doesn`t work, but its a winmodem! (apparently there is a driver available though.)
* Trying to compile apps from source results in a segmentation fault, and appears to be hardware related, though I have yet to narrow it down. The solution for now, is to compile on a similar machine running Backtrack, or Slax, (I had to do this to upgrade Aircrack-ng) and transfer the files over before doing make install, but have a look on the Slax homepage, and see if the app you want is there as a module.

x55

* core 2 duo laptop.
* bt hangs up during boot with message
* error: sdhci:slot0: unknown controller version (16)
* fans doesn’t start, so the compuret overheats after a few minuits

This can be solved by starting with “bt nohotplug acpi=off”, but I haven’t got X working yet. Also it doesn’t detect any network controller. They list with lspci, but you get an error telling you it doesn’t exist when you try to load the wifi-drivers. The whole problem is due to a very rare edition of the builtin ethernet-card (8139too). You have to somehow recompile the kernel, and make sure to activate:

* CONFIG_8139TOO_PIO=y
* CONFIG_8139_OLD_RX_RESET=y

/usr/src/drivers/ipw3945-1.2.0/load
ifconfig eth0 up
dhcpcd eth0

* Video Resolution is set at 1024*768 on startup, decent.
* If you want a higher res, use the i810 driver in your xorg.conf file.
* Conexant HD Audio does not work.

Satellite P200-1I3

Brief Hardware Components List: Intel Core Duo @1,7GHz, 2GB RAM, ATI Mobility Radeon HD2600, 17” Wide LCD, Built-In Atheros WiFi Card

Works with BT3:

* I didn’t want to install the ati.lzm file, so the resolution was not very high, but comfortable and usable (I wonder it was 1024×768, but it filled the full screen).
* You should choose the KDE VESA mode during the boot, otherwise you get an X server error.
* The built in Atheros mini-pci-e WiFi card works without any problems (only in BT3!!), packet injection: 500packet/sec, it can be used as in tutorials.

* BT2: It boots without any problem, but it doesn’t recognize the atheros wifi card (too old madwifi driver). You are strongly recommeded to use BT3.

Satellite Pro A100

* Did not work on PSAA3C-ED10XE

“LiveData not found…try booting from HD”
“Unable to load NLS charset utf8”
“Something went wrong and we can’t continue. This should never happen.”
“Can not create directory ‘…’: Read-only file system”
“linuxrc: 171” and “linuxrc: 188”

Satellite Pro 460CDT

* Runs ok when installed, very slow when live.
* I recommend using Fluxbox, as KDE is too hard on its limited hardware (P1 166 MMX !)
* USB works
* Internal Modem works!
* PCMCIA works (needs setting to 16 bit cardbus mode in bios)
* Sound is broken
* Screen size is OK once in the Desktop environment, (800×600), but is too large during boot, fixed by running liloconf, after install.
* GPS sort of works but GPS daemon takes for ever to determine the baud rate (on acount of limited hardware), could be fixed by installing an earlier version, and using the -s switch to set the baud rate.
* Using packet injection (or recieving too many packets/sec) using airodump-ng, or snort, causes lockups, or segfaults.
* Compiling any code, also causes segmentation faults (sig 11), Hardware related.

Satellite Pro 4600

PIII 700 128Mb ram

* Runs flawlessly, when installed, and at an acceptable speed from CD.
* Compiling source can be time consuming.

Satellite Pro 6100

* lspci output

Satellite A135-S2386

boots but freezes on after cs: IO port probe 0x100-0x3af:_ anybody know what can fix this ?
try at boot time -> boot: bt acpi=off
Satellite U305-5077

Runs fine, except for two issues

* Intel video needs some tweaking to run at 1280×800. Followed instructions from slangnz on the binary 915resolution found at http://forums.remote-exploit.org/showthrea…ght=intel+video and it worked.
* Wireless card “recognized” as Atheros Communications, Inc. Unknown device 001c. Will work with the latest windows drivers and ndiswrapper. See post #18 on thread http://forums.remote-exploit.org/showthread.php?t=7822. NOTE: This card won’t do most of the cool things other Atheros cards will because you have to use ndiswrapper to make it work. It is currently not supported by the MadWifi Atheros drivers.

EDIT: It seems, that with BT3 this laptop operates without any problems. So, the updated MadWifi driver recognises the card. Packet injection works also! See: http://forums.remote-exploit.org/showthread.php?t=10399

At boot time use:
boot: bt acpi=off, if not it will freeze at “cs: IO port probe 0x100-0x3af:”
Also a message about audio (alsa driver)”hda_codec: invalid dep_range_val 0:7fff” will repeat
at boot for 40sec or so… can be ignored
No sound.

Boots OK. The screen is 1280×800, so I had to move the xorg.conf-vesa to xorg.conf before doing a “startx” (in /etc/X11). Kismet works with the inbuilt Intel a/b/g wireless card. Ethernet and trackpad mouse work fine. Audio doesn’t seem to work (with Kismet, anyway).
Tecra A7

Problem with USB, otherwise everything else works (ethernet, builtin wireless, audio, visual, mouse).
Tecra A9 [S9015]

(BT3)Freezes @ Triggering udev events: /sbin/udevtrigger
Currently only booting with the ‘nohotplug’ will get you beyond the udevtrigger.
This will bring you to the old text logon.
Note: udevtrigger is hanging on the pci subsystem.
Running ‘udevd –daemon;udevtrigger –subsystem-nomatch=pci’ will allow you to start X and give you some usability.
Tecra S1

* All ok with default boot, res is 1024 x768.

  2. I’m running XP on the host computer. with VPC running BT3 ..
    When using my mouse in full screen mode with virtual PC..by default the mouse has pointer integration turned on. This is pretty simple, when you drag the mouse into the area of the window occupied by the VPC the mouse automatically is captured and used in the VPC. When you drag it out, it releases it. well with mine when it is captured it goes to full screen mode but i have no control over my mouse . i can tab my way around with back track 3 using VPC . but i need a mouse to work if anyone has a solution i would love to hear it, thx 4 the help and i will do what i can to fix it..

  3. acer aspire 1350
    non fuziona con i vesa
    in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    nella sezione device aggiungere
    Driver “openchrome”
