Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron)

I have followed the following steps to do the installation:

1) Install Hardy Heron in its normal way.

Several things did not work: acpi, wireless (Intel Wifi Ling 5100) and video card (X4500 MHD).

The ethernet card works perfectly and, althoung the video card seems to work, it hangs up when playing a video.

  • Arranging the video card: *

2) Remove the package xserver-xorg-video-i810 from the system.

3) Install de package xserver-xorg-video-inte-2.4.0-melchiorre-5-i386.deb downloaded from http://melchiorre.wordpress.com/2008/07/31/driver-intel-2\40-deb-package/

With this package the video card does not hangs up any more when playing videos.

  • Arranging the wireless card: *

4) Download the Ubuntu kernel source:

# apt-get install linux-source

5) Decompres the .tar.bz2 file downloaded by the package located at /usr/src:

# bzip2 -d linux-source-2.6.24.tar.bz2

# tar xvf linux-source-2.6.24.tar

6) Copy the configuration file from /boot to /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.24, renaming it:

# cp /boot/config-2.6.24-19-generic /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.24/config

7) Activate into the kernel the options:

For code optimization: Core 2/newer Xeon → Processor family → [*]Processor type and features

For Sound card:

Sound card support → [M]Device Drivers

Advanced Linux Sound Architecture → Sound card support → [M]Device Drivers

Intel HD Audio → PCI devices → Advanced Linux Sound Architecture → Sound card support → [M]Device Drivers

Intel HD Audio → PCI devices → Advanced Linux Sound Architecture → Sound card support → [*]Device Drivers

{{kernelconf||[*]|Device Drivers|Sound card support|Advanced Linux Sound Architecture|PCI devices|Intel HD Audio|Build Analog Device HD-audio codec support}\}

Intel HD Audio → PCI devices → Advanced Linux Sound Architecture → Sound card support → [*]Device Drivers

Intel HD Audio → PCI devices → Advanced Linux Sound Architecture → Sound card support → [*]Device Drivers

Intel HD Audio → PCI devices → Advanced Linux Sound Architecture → Sound card support → [*]Device Drivers

Intel HD Audio → PCI devices → Advanced Linux Sound Architecture → Sound card support → [*]Device Drivers

Intel HD Audio → PCI devices → Advanced Linux Sound Architecture → Sound card support → [*]Device Drivers

Intel HD Audio → PCI devices → Advanced Linux Sound Architecture → Sound card support → [*]Device Drivers

Intel HD Audio → PCI devices → Advanced Linux Sound Architecture → Sound card support → [*]Device Drivers

Necessary for wireless driver:

Netdevice multiple hardware queue support → Network device support → [*]Device Drivers

8) Compile and install the kenerl the "Debian way" (http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/ch08s06.html.en)

9) Restart the computer choosing this new kernel at boot.

10) Download wireless microcode from http://intellinuxgraphics.org?n=downloads

I downloaded iwlwifi-5000-ucode-5.4.A.11.tar.gz from "show older releases". I suspect that iwlwifi-4965-ucode-228.57.2.21.tgz includes recent driver for 510\0, but I am not sure, so I proceed with the 5000 one.

11) Decompress iwlwifi-5000-ucode-5.4.A.11.tar.gz and copy iwlwifi-5000-1.ucode to /lib/firmware and /lib/firmware/kernel-version, where kenerl-version is t\he version of the new kernel compiled (in my case 2.6.24.3-wireless). I am not sure if it is needed this second copy. Perhaps with only one of them is suffi\cient.

12) Download wireless driver from http://wireless.kernel.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/compat-wireless-old.tar.bz2 (there is a link from http://intellinuxwireless.org/?n=downloads called compat-wireless project).

13) Decompress the file, uncoment CONFIG_IWL5000=y from config.mk file and compile and install it (make and make install).

14) Reboot the system.

All must be working fine except suspend and hibernate. Some extra keys of keyboard does not work also. I'll try in future.
