Working

Touchpad

ACPI

Cpufreq

It was not working out of the box, I had to edit line 63 of /etc/init.d/cpufreq to get :
                        if [ "$model" = "9" -o "$model" = "15" -o "$model" = "13" ]; then return 0; fi

USB

Sound

Modem

I used slmodem-2.9.10-5mdk from Mandrakeclub and it worked fine.

Network

Wireless

I updated to ipw2200 0.12 as 10.1 only ships with 0.7 and the driver really improved since.

CD/DVD burner

Works fine with CD-R, not yet tested on DVD±R(W)

PCMCIA

Did not get configured automatically. I had to install pcmcia-cs, and then edit /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia. Content is now :
PCMCIA=yes
PCIC=yenta_socket
PCIC_OPTS=do_scan=0
CORE_OPTS=
CARDMGR_OPTS=-f

IrDA

Transferring files from/to my mobile phone works fine.

Partially working

Graphics card

2D is fine, except display gets corrupted when switching to external screen under X.
3D fails but I didn't look at the problem yet.
Not yet tested TV out.
Update With xorg-x11-6.8.1-3mdk (Cooker) 3D works fine and I do not need anymore to restart X after switching to external screen, switching vt is enough.

Untested
