  *)  echo "somebody is calling me totally wrong."
 
  ;;
 
esac
 
 
 
<nowiki>#</nowiki> chmod +x /etc/pm/sleep.d/radeonlight
 
 
 
Now to make it work you need {{Pkg|radeontool}}.
 
 
 
And '''DONE''', you can suspend and resume with pm-utils normally.

Problems

"Unknown Key Pressed"

  • You may occasionally run across an error (occurring in an extremely high frequency) in your messages.log/dmesg:
 atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0xee on isa0060/serio0).
 atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e06e <keycode>' to make it known.
  • The fix for this issue is fairly simple. Power down your dell laptop, and reseat the battery.
  • Another possible cause may be due to your AC adapter being unplugged from the outlet, yet attached to the back of your laptop.
  • Yet another suggested fix for the problem is updating your BIOS.. but since this is an extreme measure (found on the ubuntu forums.. so take it with a grain of salt), try the first two solutions before moving on to this potentially dangerous measure.

High Temperature

After the installation you will see that the temperature is around 60°C (Too High). You can get the temperature through:

cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature

or

cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THM/temperature

This is because the CPU frequency is at full usage always... so before continuing with the install process install cpufrequtils, you can see further details on Cpufrequtils

  • Note: using lm_sensors 'sensors' utility, k8temp-pci-00c3 reports much more reasonable temperatures (more along the lines of what windows reports) compared to this Virtual Thermal Zone. I have noticed no issues running without cpu scaling while on AC.

Installation

Follow the Installation guide.

Xorg

Follow Xorg, Touchpad Synaptics and Extra keyboard keys.

Wireless

Follow Wireless network configuration and Broadcom wireless.

Resume not working after suspend to RAM

To workaround this issue edit the file

/boot/grub/menu.lst

and add the following to the kernel boot line:

hpet=disable
