  1. Re: Will UEFI make eveyone pay $99 for using Ubuntu?

    Yes. Secure boot (if enabled) stops operating systems from booting if they're not signed with a trusted certificate. It does not permit operating systems to refuse to boot.

    [SOLVED] Re: UEFI Dual boot windows 7 and Ubuntu

    You can't just chain a partition in EFI. First, make sure that you're using an EFI build of grub - you can't enter BIOS compatibility and then jump back to EFI. Then it should just be a matter of:

    The udev rule will trigger a firmware load whenever the device is enumerated. That'll happen if anything triggers its reattachment to the USB bus, such as a power cycle of the device.

    It's in the gobi_loader tarball. Make sure it's in /etc/udev/rules.d .

    If the udev rule is installed correctly then it should automatically happen on boot.

    The hp-wmi module should be able to power the device up.

    Sounds like a bug of some sort in qcserial - if it's showing up as 1f1d then everything on the firmware side should be ok.

    1f1d is the device *after* firmware has been loaded. 201d is the device ID that needs to be in the loader rules, otherwise the load won't be triggered.

    Ok. Is the qcserial driver loading and registering /dev/ttyUSB0? If you run the firmware loader by hand (/lib/udev/gobi_loader /dev/ttyUSB0 /lib/firmware/gobi) does it work?

    The device may not appear unless the hp-wmi module is loaded. However, Ubuntu does not currently include the qcserial driver that you'll need to be able to make the modem work.

    I've written a firmware loader. You can get it from http://www.codon.org.uk/~mjg59/gobi_loader . You still need to get the correct firmware somehow - I'm not allowed to redistribute it.

    Poll: Re: [idea] replace usplash with splashy

    Splashy requires a framebuffer console, which KMS supplies. It will also work with non-KMS based framebuffers such as vesafb.



    Gallium and KMS are unrelated. Gallium is a framework for writing...

    Poll: Re: [idea] replace usplash with splashy

    KMS is still something of a work in progress. It's getting stable on more recent Radeons, but needs to be reimplemented for Intel again.

    To be fair to Ultamatix, the UI is all in Python. It calls out to shell for the package installation.

    KMS exposes a standard framebuffer interface, so Usplash and Splashy will both be able to take advantage of that without any code modification. The reason for Usplash's existence was always to deal...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Updates of resolution od Foxconn bug --- from Foxconn FAE Heart Zhang

    All reported issues are fixed in current Linux git, with the exception of the reboot after resume issue. I've just sent a (trivial) fix for that to the Linux ACPI list, so it should land in 2.6.27....
  19. [other] Re: Updates of resolution od Foxconn bug ( no debates please just updates)

    As a couple of concrete examples of this: when you eject a hotswap drive in a laptop, ACPI generates a message to the OS asking it to recheck the device. Windows 98 expects this message to be...

  21. [other] Re: Updates of resolution od Foxconn bug ( no debates please just updates)

    Ok, so there are two issues here. The first is that ACPI is a complex specification (over 600 pages) and it's very easy to write two different implementations of the same code that will trigger...

    Given the press, how would Foxconn announcing that the bug is in Linux be received? Right now it'd still be perceived as them trying to pass the buck. Linux bugs can often be worked around in the...

    No. There's a difference between not being standards compliant and having a bug (though I remain unconvinced that there's a bug in anything other than Linux here). The AMI tables compile cleanly with...
