Getting suspend to work on an IBM 365XD is easy enough--simply compile your kernel with APM support. Hibernation, however, takes a little more doing:
PS2.EXEprogram included with the 365XD to make a hibernation file. Do this from inside DOS.
If you have the TFT (active matrix) display, XFree-3.3 will work with the 365XD. It is only the dual scan display that needs XFree-3.2.
There are known problems with installing RedHat on a system with only eight megabytes of RAM. When I expanded the memory to 24 megs, not only did this make X run far faster, it also made the install far more stable.
This can be elimiated by compiling the kernel with sound support (the sound
card looks like a Sound Blaster to Linux), installing the
program, and running this command:
aumix -m 0
aumixcan also be used to increase the somewhat quiet default volume for the CD player.
You need the
PS2.EXE program to enable the serial port.
This change is remembered by the BIOS, so only needs to be done once, unless the BIOS memory gets corrupted, which hasn't ever happened to me.
