Hardware drivers for Thinkpad X220 after base install

Hi,

I performed a base install of Fedora 16 64bit for my Lenovo X220.

After testing the old F15 Live CD everything pretty much worked out of the box.

I then went on to doing a base-install in order to save space since I only have an 11GB partiton as I want to use the machine mainly for VirtualBox and testing so the bulk of the space went there.

Can anyone help me out with the drivers??

I've got the majority {I think}, however, sound is not working.

I did install ALSA on the box as I don't like Pulse Audio and see no reason to use it if ALSA does the job for me.

Here is the lspci:

Code:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family DRAM Controller (rev 09)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)

0d:00.0 System peripheral: Ricoh Co Ltd MMC/SD Host Controller (rev 07)
0e:00.0 USB Controller: NEC Corporation uPD720200 USB 3.0 Host Controller (rev 04)

Also dmesg for sound:

Code:
# dmesg | grep sound
[   10.097618] input: HDA Intel PCH HDMI/DP,pcm=8 as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0/sound/card0/input9

[   10.097800] input: HDA Intel PCH HDMI/DP,pcm=3 as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0/sound/card0/input11
[   11.687841] alsactl[803]: /sbin/alsactl: load_state:1586: Cannot open /var/lib/alsa/asound.state for reading: No such file or directory
I know that the wireless is working already, am not sure about the WWAN card though:


Code:

Or the fingerprint reader.....


Can anyone give me a hand or a point in the right direction?


Many thanks

Ok seems like a lot of the issues I'm having are to do with group associattons as logging into to Gnome with root user had everything enabled.

I just wonder which groups I need to access all peripheral devices?

Right well that's been interesting.... I've managed to fix the sound issue

I added my user to the following groups currently:

Code:
groups kaya
kaya : kaya daemon sys audio cdrom dbus usbmuxd jackuser pulse pulse-access
Now audio works....


Does anyone know how to get the new Gnome3 look back without using GDM??

Currently my system is setup to login to CLI probably init runtime 3 which if I recall correclty is multi-user no GUI mode. That suites my purposes for now not to activate GDM.

At the beginning I was logged into the new look but then as my user wasn't setup properly it said I don't have the hardware to run it and automatically disabled it somehow. I've been reading on Google which only shows the GDM way to active/deactivate the modern Gnome environment.


Can anyone help out at all????
