Fedora Core 1 on Thinkpad T40

Check my archives for what I did to get RH9 working on my laptop. I upgraded from RH9 to Fedora Core 1 (FC1; for the search engines). To fix suspend, I had to make sure I had CHANGEVT=7 commented out in /etc/sysconfig/apm, then do something like this in /etc/sysconfig/apm-scripts/apmcontinue:


case "$1" in
        chvt 1
	chvt 7

I couldn’t use CHANGEVT=7 because it would chvt before suspend, which would cause machine to lock up rather than suspend. It looks like DAG has all the RPMs you could want for FC1, such as thinkpad, tpctl, slmodem (slmdm), and kernel-module-thinkpad.
