I've just installed jaunty on another partition to test it, and I'm unable to use the latest 'linux-backports-modules'. I got lot of errors in my dmesg when trying to load the ath5k module, I think there something wrong on the deb package that needs to be fixed (after all, it's all a work in progress). I'll test again in a few days.'kadrach' pid='375' dateline='1237130156' wrote: I did not try your packages but your guides on jaunty - using (several) atkh5 versions, I was able to load a driver and find networks, but never able to connect (syslog: timeout for dhcpdiscover).
I am also experiencing quite a lot of kernel panics, no idea why.
You can add the modules into the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file, in order to avoid them to be loaded at boot time.'kadrach' pid='375' dateline='1237130156' wrote: Another thing: What would be the best way to disable automatic loading of BT/Webcam modules? Currently, they're always on after boot, and I have to disable them after every reboot. Rather than doing so, I'd like to have to specifically enable them.
Open the file in your editor and paste these lines in it:
Code: Select all
# Disable loading of webcam module on boot blacklist uvcvideo # Disable loading of bluetooth module on boot blacklist btusb
