    [kubuntu] Re: Info and help for HP TX2500 Series

    WACOMalt: The wireless light on the front of the computer (to the far right of the power switch) isn't even on? It's not even red? Does it work from Vista? What does "lspci | grep Network" return?...

    That should be patch -p1 (one) not -pl. Let me know if there are any other problems.

    thegnark: It seems that once a module is blacklisted, any generated initramfs won't contain that module. This is really awesome because now we really just need to install with acpi=off and noapic,...

    Yeah, I suppose I should have used some "uname -r"s in my original post. Anyway, it'd be "zcat initrd.img-`uname -r` > /tmp/directory.cpio/initrd.cpio" instead of "zcat initrd.img-2.6.24-20-generic...

    [kubuntu] Re: Info and help for HP TX2500 Series

    Thanks thegnark. I just installed 8.04.1, and I did need acpi=off to install. I upgraded then tried blacklisting thermal and rebooting, and that didn't work. With thermal still blacklisted, I ran...

    [kubuntu] Re: Info and help for HP TX2500 Series

    Great instructions thegnark. Did you try booting at first without apci=off? The reason I ask is because thermal is loaded in the initramfs, so blacklisting it really shouldn't prevent it from...

    [kubuntu] Re: Info and help for HP TX2500 Series

    Are you using Alpha 2 or a daily build? Either way, it'd probably be easiest to wait for alpha 3. With Intrepid, you should never need to set acpi=off. It should just work, or I'm just really...

    Wait for Alpha 3. It should be out in four days. Maybe.

    No problem. I'll throw together a howto if needed once we get the last few things figures out. Right now we've fixed the acpi shutdown problems in Hardy by removing the thermal module from the...

    [kubuntu] Re: Info and help for HP TX2500 Series

    I have some great news. With the daily build of intrepid, the system installs and boots without acpi=off.

    However, because it's a daily build, it's far from perfect. Ubuntu-desktop did not...

    Awesome job isachan. This is the best news I've heard in a while.

    Basically, inside of the acpi subsystem is a module called thermal which reads temperatures from thermal sensors in the hardware, and shuts down the computer if the temperatures reach a certain trip...

    Here's how I removed the module thermal from my initramfs:

    The wireless started working meaning that the light was blue, or that you were actually able to connect to a network?

    Well it's nice to see I'm not the only one having troubles. I've figured out that the critical trip point problem lies within the thermal module which is loaded with the initramfs, so for now we...
