I'm running an Eee PC 1005HA, and just upgraded to 9.10. I've noticed the following problems, and it seems like there's a lot of conflicting reports, claiming everything from "perfect out-of-the-box functionality" to "everything sucks." I see two specific problems for my model:
- power management / overclocking not available
- hotkeys (both fn keys and silver hotkeys) don't work
There might be other problems with the bootup time, but I'm not so concerned about that.
These are both caused by a problem with the ACPI packages; I can't install eeepc-acpi-scripts, because it conflicts with acpi-support, which is recommended by ubuntu-netbook-remix. I tried removing it before installing eeepc-acpi-scripts, but then I hit a dependency issue trying to find a non-virtual candidate for acpi-support-base.
Has anybody else hit this problem? I tried dragging in the Jaunty statux.org packages that just recently got abandoned in frustration by the developer, and those did not work (duh - special kernel mods no longer needed, but the hooks for acpi don't work with the tools in karmic). Is this an all-or-nothing, to roll back to Jaunty?
