Dear reader,


is the smolt profile of this machine. Short version: Lenovo Ideapad 
S10-3t with cando touchscreen, N450 CPU yadda yadda.

Problems encountered:

- Netinstall not possible. Network card gets configured wrong. Solution: 
USB install and after reboot do:

   rmmod tg3
   modprobe broadcom
   modprobe tg3

For some obscure reason the network card works after that.

- Wireless kills touchpad

Sounds weird, I know. The wireless only seems to run with kmod-wl-PAE 
from nonfree rpmfusion. After you install that and reboot, the buttons 
of the synaptics touchpad stop working. So no mouseclick possible anymore.

- Touchscreen doesn't work

This litle netvertible has a fince cando touchscreen but I fail to find 
any hint to get it working.

Can provide any level of details if needed. It would be so cool to have 
this working. It would be a Free and Open sort of iPad ...
