Hi, I was just curious if anyone's been able to get the irda working on an
insprion 8100. If so, what chipset is it and how do i go about configuring
it?! Any help to this would be greatly appreciated, I know i'll prolly end
up needing lirc, I just don't have a clue how to configure it. One thing I
did find out though, whenever I'd start lirc, my laptop would lock
up...anyone else expierience this? Once again, thanks in advance!
have you found any workarounds for suspending/hibernating the machine
while NVdriver is loaded? (I know about the swsuspend patch - but it's
not been updated for the latest kernels).
Have you been able to compile in the ACPI stuff and get it working (I
found that it hangs - and that APM is the alternative)
