    [ubuntu] Re: ASUS u36sd support thread

    I've also run into trouble with the USB 3 port. Before I try a solution, I want to post for posterity some of the symptoms I've been experiencing so that if someone else runs into the same problems,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Acer Timeline 3810T

    Yep, Acer USA did not reply to me but if they had, I would have gotten the same answer. That's what the people on the front line of customer service are trained to say. And that's why what is...

    [ubuntu] Re: Acer Timeline 3810T

    I contacted customer support a while back, I did not even get a response. I've been busy with other things so I have not yet brought this up to the next level. The next step as I see it is to find...

    [ubuntu] Re: Acer Timeline 3810T

    I've complained to Acer USA support today. I'm expecting that the answer I get will be unsatisfactory. At least, I'll be able to say I've been through normal channels before trying to get the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Acer Timeline 3810T

    I've been thinking for a while that the solution to this problem is not to try to hack the kernel or the BIOS but to complain loudly. The fact of the matter for me right now is this:

    1. The 3810T...

    [ubuntu] Re: Acer Timeline 3810T

    And I bought my 3810T before Karmic Beta. I've run Jaunty on it for months and never had to do anything about AHCI. It just booted fine on the first try and every time thereafter.

    [ubuntu] Re: Acer Timeline 3810T

    Same here on my 3810T. No need to switch from AHCI to IDE mode. There are other pieces of advice I saw in this thread which did not apply to my machine.

    In other news:

    The backlight problem...

    Well, it's a good reminder. :)

    I've actually tried this before but I retried after reading what you quoted just to make sure I really covered all my bases. So I tried manipulating both of these...

    [ubuntu] Re: Acer Timeline 3810T

    Correct, it is vague.

    1. Using the Fn keys to change brightness does not work.
    2. When going from battery to AC or AC to battery, Gnome will show a notification that it is changing the brightness...

    I don't use pci=biosirq but I do have an issue with brightness. I used your xrandr command and was able to restore control. (Thanks.) But I don't need to use xbacklight. I can just use...

    Well, I tried pci=biosirq but my kernel complained that it was an unrecognized parameter.

    [ubuntu] Re: Acer Timeline 3810T

    Are you running a 32 bit kernel? I checked the kernel doc and found that biosirq is listed as a [X86-32] parameter.

    I have a 3810T but I can't reboot right now because I'm in the middle of...

    Actually the developer of the frequency scaling monitor recommends using ondemand. There are some cases in which powersave can be a better choice (e.g. old CPUs which do not have an idle state). ...

  16. Re: Howto: Simple upgrade to Hardy's developing kernel - 2.6.24

    I think it is because nvidia-settings must be in lockstep with the nvidia driver and the nvidia-settings as now shipped with Hardy depends on libraries that are shipped only with Hardy.

    The...
  17. Re: Howto: Simple upgrade to Hardy's developing kernel - 2.6.24

    Maybe for the same reasons that if you just upgrade to a Hardy kernel on Gutsy some of your usb stuff won't work unless you upgrade your udev and even then you might have to manually mess with some...
  18. Re: Howto: Simple upgrade to Hardy's developing kernel - 2.6.24

    Could it be that the problem is not in the iwlwifi driver but in wpa_supplicant? If the wpa_supplicant bundled with Hardy is different than the one in Gutsy, that could explain why there's no...
  19. Re: Howto: Simple upgrade to Hardy's developing kernel - 2.6.24

    I presume based on previous posts that you're still talking about the iwl3945. Someone googling and stumbling upon the question and answer could easily think that WPA (in whatever form) does not...
  20. Re: Howto: Simple upgrade to Hardy's developing kernel - 2.6.24

    I've upgraded to 11 a few minutes ago. Everything looks fine so far.

    I had a strange problem with 10 however. This morning I suspended my laptop. When I resumed it, it looked like X crashed. I...
  21. Re: Howto: Simple upgrade to Hardy's developing kernel - 2.6.24

    I ran into the same problem. That's because when a new kernel is released, the modules for it trickle out to the package repository in bits and pieces rather than all at once. It can take a few...
  22. Re: Howto: Simple upgrade to Hardy's developing kernel - 2.6.24

    There's APM but that is more primitive than ACPI in functionality and might not be available on your specific machine. AFAIK development efforts are spent more on ACPI than APM.

    If it is connected through usb you might want to search this thread with the keyword "usb" to find all the posts that discuss usb issues. Otherwise, I don't know.

    In general, answering a beginner with RTFM or "you shouldn't have to ask that" is certainly problematic.

    But consider the context in which you are asking. Yes, Walkerk made a script that greatly...
  25. Re: Howto: Simple upgrade to Hardy's developing kernel - 2.6.24

    I think the comments above about iwlwifi being unstable concern only the iwl3945.

    The iwl4965 is also part of the iwlwifi driver and has been working perfectly for me ever since Gutsy Gibbon was...
