Hello community,

How is everyone feeling today?
Am interesting question, Does DragonflyBSD support centrino?
I'm talking about eXecution Bit protection, stepping technology, and 
other  functions which the pentium M allows to save energy while 
providing decent  speed to the end user. I've just ordered a Pentium M 
1.7GHz and hopefully  nothing goes wrong with my order. I'm hoping to 
install DragonFlyBSD on  the laptop. Every piece of hardware should be 
compatible with a bit of OS  modification(Intel Wireless 2200 built-in 

There is a project which supports my card. Maybe it would be easy to  
include in DragonFlyBSD.

My lovely laptop weighs 6 pounds and uses a 6-cell battery.

The wonders of Centrino technology. The wonders of having a real 
notebook  which has at least 4.5+ battery life.

Don't get too excited about it. After the laptop being used for a year, 
the battery life reduced to less than 3 hours. :)
