Just got my new laptop up and running (after a major battle shrinking Vista to a size more appropriate for a toy OS).
GUI install was painless. Took me a while to find the correct 'vga=' mode to get the correct widescreen resolution supported in the framebuffer (the machine runs 1280x800). However, doing that has broken the bootsplash. Are there any widescreen versions of the bootsplash images available, or will I need to try and build my own?
I'm not getting the notifier daemon running, same problem as I was having on the T42. Vcpufeq is working fine throttling the dual core CPU, which is nice.
One fairly major problem - the wired ethernet interface is working fine (or I wouldn't be typing this...), but the system hasn't loaded anything for the wireless interface at all. lspci says this:
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN Networ
k Connection (rev 61)
Subsystem: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1011
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 11
Memory at df3fe000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
I'm not even sure what module should support this, or where to find the firmware for it. Any help?
For some reason, I've not been able to migrate my Seamonkey profile from the old machine - I'll have to look at that a bit more, since I've got a lot of mail and passwords that I really don't want to loose...
