Subject: [gentoo-user] Kernel 2.6.26 and iwl3945
Date: Fri, 14 Nov 2008 21:31:11
1 Hi list!
3 I recently updated from tuxonice-2.6.24-r9 to tuxonice-2.6.26.
5 I hoped it would solve irregular kernel crashes on my Dell notebook and
6 would reactivate the wifi LED. However, it caused more problems than it
7 solved.
9 - the pvrusb2 (V4L2) kernel module works but causes kernel panics and oops
10 - the bay (ACPI) module can't be loaded
11 - suddenly Thunderbird disappears on suspend2disk/resume
12 - the RFKILL switch is not always recognized (needs interface restart)
13 - iwlwifi sometimes causes (non-critical) kernel oops when initialized
14 - the wifi LED still doesn't work
16 The first three points will need more investigation on my part and might
17 soon be the topic of other threads. However, I'd like to hear your input
18 on the other issues:
20 Is this kernel version generally unstable?
21 What do I need to make the LED work?
22 What could I do to solve all these problems? I'm out of ideas at the
23 moment and Gentoo Bugzilla doesn't offer much on these topics.
25 I've attached the kernel config and a part of dmesg where iwlwifi caused
26 an oops after I've restarted the net.eth1 script but then it worked
27 flawlessly.
29 Thanks in advance!
