Such improved support is exactly the purpose of Lenny'n'half, yes. Really sad that the new line of Dell Optiplex desktops will not be supported out-of-the-box by lenny. I think we can blame the damn habit of those HW manufacturers to change their product line every 6 months.:-( > In Ubuntu support for these ICH10 NICs was added to kernel 2.6.27-6.9: > > [ Tim Gardner ] > > * Add support in e1000e for a couple of ICH10 PCI IDs > * Enable CONFIG_INPUT_PCSPKR=m > - LP: #275453 > > https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/275453/comments/3 > > Apparently they merged some changes from the e1000e driver from SourceForge: This is their responsibility. I personnally think that such backports of kernel N+1 into kernal N add more mess in the kernel land than solving problems, but apparently some people think differently. We indeed don't have much to do with that bug report. We could reassign it to the kernel with "please support <foo>" but we already know this should be closed when the kernel team uploads 2.6.28. So, reassigning it to the kernel just adds more hassle to the kernel team: think about closing that BR when uploading 2.6.28....without much benefit. Any other opinions before I close the bug report?
