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?


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:

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)
