kernel 2.6.28 eeepc 1000ha hardware
The two pieces of hardware that I'm hoping to add functionality for are the atheros5007 wireless pci card (I may have the name slightly incorrect - I'm basing it on memory). Windows gets the card correct, linux guesses incorrectly. It works in linux, but I'm hoping to add some functionality - maybe it will help clear up some very minor issues I'm having.
Also I want to add functionality for the Intel 945GM graphics chipset. Hopefully this will allow me to use a virtual resolution with Xorg. Ubuntu allowed me to have a virtual resolution, in debian it does not. I found a firmware fix somewhere but it was rather confusing and complicated. It has something to do with the firmware on the card being programed to only allow certain resolutions and you have to trade on set of resolutions (ie: 600x480) for a larger resolution. It was strange. I believe right now it is using the Intel 915 drivers. Again, it works... but I want to tinker.
I just finished compiling and installing... I am going to give it a go...
