Hi, Neil...

I've got my T60 now, a 1953-D6U, and I've installed eCS silver on it. I'm
pretty happy with how things went, but there are a few things that don't work,
so I'll ask about them.

1. System sounds don't work right. There is a half-second pause where the
machine is unresponsive, then the sound plays from the middle or so. Youtube
and other sound works just fine. I've tried UniAud rc6 that came with silver,
and Paul's Uniaud 1.9.19 and 1.9.22.

I believe that Carl ended up using either an older build entirely or (as many of us discovered during the early days of testing, due to sampling rates) turned off system sounds.
2. I don't understand how APM works under Silver. I think it just failed to
install. In any case, no suspend/resume, not even power-off on lid close. I
read Chuck's post about APM, Silver and the SMP kernel, and I've realized that
I don't know enough about the topic.

Not sure myself. I'll do a clean install on the T61 and add that to the list of things to check.
Still, the list of things that do work is impressive. USB, most sound, wired,
wireless, display. I'm planning to upgrade the hard drive to something a little
larger and I need a new battery.
Good luck. While you're playing, it might be more helpful for you to check out Julian's display issues, as the T61 may behave differently for me.

Cheers. Enjoy the new toy. ;-)
