I've finally gotten round to installing this on my laptop, and I'm generally really pleased. First, I am finally able to use hardware acceleration on Firefox!!!! Instead of 2-5 fps on the hardware acceleration test, I get upwards of 50 fps. As someone who develops a FF extension that does motion tracking, this is BIG for me!
Whats more, my new Wacom Pen and Touch works out of the box with no need to configure anything. Just plug it in and it works!
What did not work out of the box was wireless. I have a Broadcom 4313 card (yes, one of *those*) in my hp-pavilion. Although the proper driver was installed, during boot time, there are a series of unfortunate events. First the card is mis-identified as a bluetooth device and btusb is loaded as a module. Also, bcma is loaded. I find that to get the card to work, I have to, in order:
ifconfig eth1 up
Being clever sometimes, I figured I could blacklist the drivers bcma and btusb. No joy. Doing this does not work as intended. Although the drivers do get blacklisted, wl doesn't auto-load. I also then tried loading wl from rc.local, but while this loads, nothing shows up in dmesg and the card is unusable. It seems that I have to manually rmmod the offending drivers and then reload the wl module each time I boot. Any thoughts on what could be amiss?
BTW, the wired connect is solid, and everything else, to this point, seems to work like a charm.
