Default Re: Problems with 9300M GS on Sony Vaio Z11

Also having this problem in Ubuntu 8.04, kernel 2.6.27-7-generic #1 SMP. I have been using the intel video as a consequence.

I know this is off topic, but the wireless card is a quick fix. In ubuntu, just do this:

Code:
sudo aptitude install build-essential
wget http://intellinuxwireless.org/iwlwifi/downloads/iwlwifi-5000-ucode-5.4.A.11.tar.gz
tar xzvf iwlwifi*
sudo cp iwlwifi*/iwlwifi-5000-ucode-5.4.A.11/iwlwifi-5000-1.ucode /lib/firmware

wget http://wireless.kernel.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/compat-wireless-old.tar.bz2
tar xjvf compat-wireless-old.tar
cd compat-wireless-2.6-old/

vim  config.mk
#A file will open. Search for the string CONFIG_IWL4965_HT=y. Directly after that string, on a new line, add this string:
# Code: CONFIG_IWL5000=y

make
sudo make install
sudo make unload
sudo make load
Unfortunately most of the ACPI is not working for me, ie, cannot restart, hibernate, or suspend. Additionally, some Fn keys do not work.
