Acer Aspire 1690 series & Suse 10.1

Hi there!

I am a Linux newbie and I found some problems with the installation of the suse 10.1 on my laptop. I used the 10.0 version for a while and i had no problems with the wireless button. But now, i cant turn on my ipw2200 wireless card or play mp3 with amarok (it seems i have a problem with the codec). I tried with acerhk but it seems it has a problem loading the module.

Does anyone can help me?

Thanks in advance.

PS: i cant turn on the 3d acceleration of my graphic board (ATI Mobility Radeon X700) is there any page like a tutorial?

Yeah, I have the same issues. I "upgraded" to Suse 10.1 (it seems like a step backwards on hardware detection) and I cant turn on my wireless card. Everything was fine with 10.0 version. I tried the help of ipw2200 page at sourceforge (downloaded drivers and firmware) but I cant load the module (ok, I'm not a linux expert ). I installed acerhk in order to use the button to turn on the card but it didnt result. Even the trick of starting windows, switch on the card and reboot fails.
The strange part of all this, is that Suse recognized my card, I configured it (dhcp and encription) but I just cant turn it on.
I cant listen to my mp3 too. I got the same codec error .

Because all of this I am seriously considering to downgrade to 10.0 version.

If you learn to fix this problems, please let me know.
