    Ubuntu Netbook Remix + Acer Aspire One D250 [SOLVED]

    Hey everyone,

    I recently bought a new Acer Aspire One D250. I downloaded the Ubuntu Netbook Remix Jaunty and I installed it. Everything seems to work right out of the box except for 3 things.

    01. The ethernet does not seem to work
    02. The wifi led does not seem to come on
    03. The front mic also does not work

    I have looked at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AspireOne and they seem to be talking about a different model, I tried following the instructions but I am not getting any positive results.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Cheers

    Hello All,

    Another update, I swapped in my windows hardisk and found out that the ethernet card is Atheros AR8132 but under ubuntu it shows as 03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Attansic Technology Corp. Device 1062 (rev c0)

    Is there anyway to "blacklist the Attansic.." and manually add Atheros AR8132?

    Cheers,

    Suomaf

    Hey guys,

    I was looking at this https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...24/+bug/341183 and I found out that they added the support for my AR8132.

    I am not sure on how to continue, Is there a kernel module I have to download, and after that how do i load the module?

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Suo

    Re: Ubuntu Netbook Remix Jaunty + Acer Aspire One D250

    Ok I went over to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/363691 and I followed the instructions to head over to http://partner.atheros.comDrivers.aspx to download the drivers for the ethernet card. There were 2 drivers to download there

    AR813X-linux-v1.0.0.8.tar.gz and ..
    AR81Family-linux-v1.0.1.0.tar.gz

    not sure which one to get I got both and unzipped them and had a look, it seems that the AR813X was a little newer. So I went ahead and did a

    make in ./src

    then a

    make install

    I then went into the install directory using superuser

    sudo su
    cd /lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/kernel/drivers/net/atl1e
    insmod ./arl1e.ko

    This seem to load it and then i did a

    ifconfig

    then network manager picked up the eth0 card

    Sweet 1 down and 2 more things to go..

    Regarding the sound, when i plug in a mic, I can record, but I am not sure how to get the front mic going.

    Also the LED for the wifi is still not working.. the instructions says to "load linux-backports-modules-jaunty" does this mean apt-get install linux-backports-modules-jaunty and then reboot?

    Any help would be appreciated, cheers

    I wouldn't bother with the backport for the LED - it's not on constantly rather it flickers on TX/RX and it needs manually reloaded on resume. You also need to add some keys, let me know if you want to try it.

    The front mic is a known issue and is being worked on - I can't see the bug number at the moment.

    Everything should work OOB but wireless on that netbook usgin Jaunty.

    To get the wireless to work do the following:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-jaunty
    Then enable the restricted driver in Hardware Drivers. The LEDs even work.
    Windows XP - Excellent computer virus detector.
    Windows Vista - Most bloat for the money.

    The Attansic(manufactured by Atheros) card is the WIRED ethernet, the Atheros is the WIRELESS ethernet card.

    Thanks Stchman,

    Really appreciate the answer, lspci picked up the ethernet card as Attansic but on windows it actually is Atheros AR8132, but thats sorted out. Thanks for the tip on the WIRELESS card, I'll try it out.

    Cheers
