    Ubuntu support on Centrino 2 (HP dv7t) platform

    Does anyone known when Ubuntu will add support for the newer Centrino 2 platform? The following devices don't have driver support in Hardy (8.04.1):

    $ lspci | grep Unknown
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Unknown device 0649 (rev a1)
    02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Unknown device 4237
    06:00.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): JMicron Technologies, Inc. Unknown device 2380
    06:00.1 System peripheral: JMicron Technologies, Inc. Unknown device 2382
    06:00.2 SD Host controller: JMicron Technologies, Inc. Unknown device 2381
    06:00.3 System peripheral: JMicron Technologies, Inc. Unknown device 2383
    06:00.4 System peripheral: JMicron Technologies, Inc. Unknown device 2384

    Probably never. The devices need to be supported into the kernel so unless you install an alpha intrepid or some other distro with a newer kernel, you have no support ...
