Function keys on NC110

Hi I am having little joy getting the function keys to work on my NC110. In particular the Fn+F5 (backlight) and Fn+F9 (wifi) keys are not doing anything. I compile my own kernal and use the in kernel drivers. I am using the 3.8 kernel source from Debian. In .config I have set: CONFIG_SAMSUNG_LAPTOP...

Re: Maverick - samsung-wireless conflicts with in-kernel dri

Update:
I have now tried the built in driver with kernel 2.6.37-rc5. It seems fairly stable but is still logging lots of error messages, see the kernel bug links above.

Re: Maverick - samsung-wireless conflicts with in-kernel dri

Hi mikebl71 I think it is not as simple as that. It is not "a driver". If you look inside rtl8192e_linux_2.6.0015.1013.2010 you will find a lot of files needed to compile and set up the driver. So although you end up with a r8192e_pci.ko module that is, I think, the main part of the driver there is ...

Re: Maverick - samsung-wireless conflicts with in-kernel dri

Hello mikebl71 As I understand it the situation is that the Realtek driver is an out of tree driver, that is it is not part of the Linux kernel. However, it has to work with the Linux kernel, so it has to be compiled from source code to work with the particular version of the kernel. Presumably in U...

Re: samsung-wireless - driver version

mikebl71 voria's samsung-wireless is packaged for Ubuntu and it might be "that simple" if you use Ubuntu. I use Debian. The steps I took may work for other distros. However, what we could really do with is the built in kernel drivers working properly, then they would be available for everyone. We se...

Re: samsung-wireless - driver version

turbolad

Have a look at my posting of 10th November. If there is anything there that you do not understand, post it here.

I suspect it is not as simple as updating the samsung-wireless package. Any existing kernel driver has to be removed as well.

Re: samsung-wireless - driver version

turbolad, I am not sure what you mean by "update install". If you mean available through your Linux distribution (e.g. with Debian using aptitude) then it is not going to be available for a while yet. The firmware, which is available as a Debian package, is irrelevant. All the versions of the firmwa...

Re: Debian Squeeze on N220

Paul I have just done a quick check on your .config file and there are too many differences from mine to see what your problem is. What I do is to open the .config file with OpenOffice.org and save it as a .odt file in a user folder. I can then use edit > Compare Document to compare versions of .con...

Re: samsung-wireless - driver version

Thanks to fatgerman for sending me a copy of this driver package (as he wrote, Realtek will also send you the package). Indeed, it works on my N220. This is an out of kernel driver, so before installing it I removed my kernel driver. In my case that meant setting # CONFIG_RTL8192E is not set in my k...

Re: samsung-wireless - driver version

The drivers version 0014.0401.2010 are included in the Debian package firmware-nonfree, see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=573950 . However, my N220 still does not work using them. dmesg shows a CPUcheck_firmware_ready error which tends to suggest the error is with the firmware. Ho...

Re: Debian Squeeze on N220

voRia sent me the following information: "So, to enable the FN keys you need to edit the files '/lib/udev/rules.d/95-keyboard-force-release.rules' and '/lib/udev/rules.d/95-keymap.rules' and add your model to the list of Samsung models. To find the exact name of your model that you need to add, use ...

Debian Squeeze on N220

I am using Debian Squeeze on an N220. I compile my own kernel and I compile all drivers into the kernel (i.e. I do not use modules). I have carried out the following steps: I installed easy-slow-down-manager-dkms_0.13.1 from: http://code.google.com/p/easy-slow-down-manager/downloads/list In a root t...
