Hello,

the "TuxMobil News Digest" for March 2005[1] has good news
for Linux PDA, mobile phone, laptop and notebook users. Here is an
extract of the most important or most interesting messages.
If you are missing news, applications or documents, don't
hesitate to contact me.

Please support our work by submitting news and Linux reports about
laptops, notebooks, PDAs, mobile phones and portable media players.

|=| Monthly Highlights

|=| Because of license issues there are almost no free drivers for SD/MMC card
readers built into laptops or PDAs available. The one exception is the
Linux driver for the Winbond's W83L518D and W83L519D
SD/MMC card readers (1.1)

PS: There are binary drivers for SHARP Zaurus PDAs. - External USB
card readers as well as some (if not all) _active_ PCMCIA-SD
adapters are supported.

PS: Addicted to Linux and mobile computing since almost ten years, I often
needed to investigate or repair laptop hardware. Sometimes I found it
difficult to get necessary information, so finally I have started a new
project:

Repair4Laptop

Need to achieve a hard disk or CPU upgrade of your laptop or notebook?
Need to repair a broken display? Want to dissect your laptop or
notebook, to know what chips are actually inside your mobile computer?
Are you missing a service manual? Or just in the mood of modding or
hacking your mobile gadget? Here is a collection of links to take
apart instructions, disassembly pictures or dismantling videos,
upgrade and repair manuals, as well as do-it-yourself (DIY) tips and
tricks for laptop and notebook repairs. If you have written a repair
report yourself, please send me a note.
