Hi, I hope I'm on the right mailing list for this issue. The kernel (I'm using Fedora's 2.6.37rc7) loads the acer-wmi module on a Lenovo Ideapad S12 netbook and I think that's not necessary. Loading the module causes problems with NetworkManager, the wireless network can't be enabled at all. This seems to happen because acer-wmi adds a soft blocked wifi killswitch, which can't be unblocked with rfkill.
Now that the kernel has the ideapad-laptop module, which seems to handle the killswitches better, acer-wmi could probably be disabled with this netbook. I know almost nothing about ACPI/WMI myself, which is why I'm writing on the list instead of just fixing this. -- Ville-Pekka Vainio -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe platform-driver-x86" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
