DVDRW

ATAPI: TSSTcorp DVD+/-RW TS-L633J, D200, max UDMA/100

CD-ROM TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-L633J D200 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5

Using driver: scsi3-mmc

Supported extensions:

24x/24x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray

Successfully burns both cd mediums and dvd mediums, tested using K3B 2.0.2-1.

Touchpad

It is using the synaptic driver.

Works ok after installing the package xf86-input-synaptics.

Todo: Needs tweaking, cause it is too anoying.

Use this script to disable the touch pad when you do not like it:

#!/bin/bash

    synclient TouchpadOff=1
else
    synclient TouchpadOff=0

Wireless

Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01) In kernel 2.6 it works out of the box, but in kernel 3.0 there is no wlan0, we have to blacklist some modules.

So open "/etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf" and append the following line:

blacklist bcma

now, reboot or restart the kernel.

When we issue iwconfig, it should now list wlan0:

lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.
