Short answer: no.
Long answer: these character strings are retrieved by lspci in the database /usr/share/pci.ids from the code identifying the device.

You can have a look at /usr/share/pci.ids as it takes the form of a text file, which is a copy at a point of time of the "official" database of the PCI IDs which can be queried at http://pci-ids.ucw.cz/.

FYI you can update yourself /usr/share/pci.ids. For that, simply run as root:
Code:
update-pciids
BTW similarly the list of USB IDs /usr/share/usb.ids can be updated at anytime with the command:
Code:
update-usbids
.

I simply meant that when I see in some posts with Google's help "F4.B=FF" I can guess that "F4.B" is the code used to set the "brightness" property. Unfortunately I wouldn't have guessed that if I hadn't see the command written down by other people

Okay, I appreciate the details. It's really great to have this fixed. I wanted a working system on which to learn, and now I have it. Thanks!

Good

Nevertheless, could you please send the output of:
Code:
cat /var/log/messages|grep SABI
cat /var/log/syslog|grep SABI
as this could be helpful for other people with similar hardware.

I also have a Samsung N145 Plus and this did the trick for me.

Sorry, for some reason I did not receive any more updates for this thread, and I just saw now that you asked me for this. Here it is:

Code:
bash-4.1$ cat /var/log/messages|grep SABI
bash-4.1$ cat /var/log/syslog|grep SABI
Jul 30 12:46:58 darkstar kernel: [  316.060797] This computer does not support SABI
Jul 30 12:52:29 darkstar kernel: [  646.496724] This computer does not support SABI
Jul 30 12:58:49 darkstar kernel: [ 1027.098547] This computer does not support SABI
Jul 30 13:01:11 darkstar kernel: [ 1169.021680] This computer does not support SABI
Jul 30 17:53:05 darkstar kernel: [  122.070691] This computer does not support SABI
bash-4.1$
Thank you again for helping me.
