Wifi/acpi problems on sony laptop PCG-R600 after upgrading to slackware-12.0
I am having a few problems with my wifi card which seems to become blind after a few secondes after the boot. I can receive a dhcp address but network goes down and scan doesn't give any results (I know I can reach a least ten wifi networks from here !)
The problem is with a sony PCG-R600HMPD Laptop with a wifi Intersil Prism 2.5
Everything worked fine with the slackware-11.0 and sonypi driver
I have upgrade to Slackware-12.0 and encountered problems with my X configuration. So I haden't finished looking at all the new config files. But network worked fine. I finished that when I had my X working again. But broke my wifi network....
I had a rc.network file to run in place of rc.inet1. It was called by rc.M. So I made same changes in new ones but couldn't find anything to do in the rc.network
Here a few lines that I found interesting in /var/log/messages
I am no more sure of anything, even where I could post :/
Thanks for help.
It seems to be a kernel related problem.
After upgrading to 22.214.171.124, still same problem as with 126.96.36.199.
It's about ACPI, sonpi/sony-laptop driver and my hermes/prism2/orinoco card.
I am compiling the kernel used by slackware-11.0, but waiting for next release of 2.6.23 kernel since rc3 Changelog shows ACPI and sony related fixes.
Hope it could help.
