Kernel configs

Working config for 2.6.34-rc5: http://s01.de/~lc/eeepc/1001p/kernelconfig

Issues

ACPI and Intel KMS

Symptoms: Screen goes black when Intel KMS and ACPI is on. Brightness controls aren't working. Solution: Add the following to your kernel parameter list:

 acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor

Display

  • LCD brightness adjustment seems poorly supported. Doing:
# cat /proc/acpi/video/VGA/LCDD/brightness
levels:  1 5 8 10 13 16 20 22 25 27 29 30 32 33 35 36

then, 

# echo <Number> > /proc/acpi/video/VGA/LCDD/brightness

many of the listed levels are either identical to each other or result in a black screen. The overall maximum brighness seems dimmer than it should be.

Touchpad

Two-Finger scrolling works with a /etc/X11/xorg.conf like this:
