inspiron 5150 and 2.4.24 kernel
Did anybody manage to compile a working 2.4.24 kernel for Inspiron 5150? As of
version 2.4.23 I was not able to compile kernel and have acpi and usb to work
properly. USB mouse doesn't work at all, and processor fan works at highest
speed all the time. I tried with my own kernels and debian precompiled ones,
but the same problem persists. Kernel 2.4.22 works perfectly.
Another thing -- my BIOS is A01, and Dell suggests upgrading to A29 or
something version. I've read some reports that BIOS upgrade affects linux
performance badly. Does anybody have experience with this for Inspiron 5150?
