New Sony VAIO support?
I was wondering if anyone is working on support for the newer Sony
VAIO notebooks, as there are a _lot_ of features which are currently
unsupported under Debian (and Linux in general, in fact). For
example, the function keys which switch to an external monitor, the
volume etc (which all used to be supported by the BIOS directly) are
now seemingly handled in software, which is only available for
Has Sony given any word on whether information will be given out, so
that full use of these, otherwise very nice, notebooks can be made
under an OS other than Windows?
(The PCG-C1XE/S/D and PCG-Z505HX [I think..] both have this problem,
and I assume many others do too).
As an aside, I think that Sony have taken a large step backwards by
doing this to their customers.
