Toshiba tecra A10 owners may be interested to know that the solution proposed by eastg

(ie adding "options snd-hda-intel index=0 model=acer")

also works on this tosh running ubuntu 8.10

Many thanks to him for this suggestion.

Most features now appear to work well on this model with the possible exception of the fingerprint reader, for which I have not yet managed to find a driver.

kernel image 2.6.27 now has support for the RTL8187B built in wifi driver. I got that kernel (the hard way) by installing Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex (x86, not AMD64) The wifi is working fine right now. It's supporting WEP and WPA. Haven't tried other forms of encryption though. I needed an upgraded distro anyway. Might be time to upgrade that kernel huh?
