In the version I downloaded of the Ubuntu 6.06 (don't know how to see what release it is more in detail, but I downloaded it the 01/06/2006) The ipw3945 driver is already included. The Wifi work out of the box. --schlum


Have you tried undervolting to combat your noise issues?

--igorr


Switching the SATA controller from "compatibility" to "AHCI" in the BIOS settings (and thus using the ahci instead of the ata_piix driver) made suspend to ram work for me with the 2.6.15-23-686 kernel. However, it seems to draw about 1 - 2 W more power when in this mode.


3D works fine: glxgears -printfps 5057 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1011.230 FPS

fingerprint read is my suspend problem

When sspending, the fingerprintreader is my problem:

lsusb
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0483:2016 SGS Thomson Microelectronics Fingerprint Reader

From dmesg:

[17179913.108000] Shrinking memory... done (20337 pages freed)
[17179916.144000] suspend_device(): usb_generic_suspend+0x0/0x130 [usbcore]() returns -16
[17179916.144000] Could not suspend device 3-2: error -16

Any ideas? I could maybe remove the whole usb driver ... which module would that be?! --Alfonx 14:08, 25 January 2007 (CET)
