Wink Presario 2100 Laptop Wireless/Sound LEDs


Greetings,

I jsur recently installed GNU/Linux and am delighted with it so fasr, it was a learning curve getting ACPI etc to work. The stage I am at now is that my laptop has a wireless light and a sound mute light to indicate when active, I am unable to find information online to assist me in obtaining driver etc to get these to switch on and off inline with the status of my connection etc or to start a wireless connection. Can someone please point me to some useful information ro offer their experience. Thanks

How did you get the sound mute LED to work? have you got the volume control buttons to work?

I have the same problem, but i am doing a little research, (started 10 mins ago) and hoping that i am not saying something stupid, but i believe this is related to acpi configuration

www.acpi.info

For some reason KDE on mandrake turns off sound by default.

I have no idea why this is the case.

Try

amixer sset "External Amplifier Power Down" toggle

or from KDE you can also use KMix, go to Advanced and activate "External Amplifier". To make KDE remember this between sessions: Control Center -> Mixer : Save Current Volumes (and make sure "Load volumes on login" is checked).

Hope it works for your guys.

A 2.6.4 kernel works fine on my 2100 with acpi on, what options did you select under acpi on the kernel config?

I checked out all the options under acpi in kernel config. but then when i boot ut the thing i get:

ACPI:IRQ9 SCI: Level Trigger

and it hangs. i`ve tried the 2.6 kernels up to 2.6.3, all with the same result.
any options in config i should not include??

The volume control buttons work fine in gnome, but the mute doesn't.
