B132 rge fix MSI Wind

Hi All,

 So to fix the B132 rge pcie problems on the MSI Wind you need to copy the B130 /kernel/drv/rge somewhere on the system after the pkg image-update, on the first boot after B132 update, copy the stored rge into /kernel/drv and reboot, the errors should go away.

For some reason the Xorg on my system is trying to load the 64 bit libglx.so, which stops compiz running, you can just link the /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/GL/libglx.so back to the /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so.

What's pissing me off, is during a restart the link gets set back to the 64/libglx.so, not sure what's doing this yet.

USB sd card ready is not working now either, and cpu 1 is still running at 100% after a resume.

Yes, that's the issue, I still confused about why it does not happen on the Acer One 10", just the MSI.

Also what is running at start up to actually fix the soft link.

Probably because the Acer is 64 bit... 'isainfo -k'.

No, they are both Intel Atom 32 bit processors, same video.

Difference is in the BIOS, Xorg is IDing it wrong.

As explained in one of the later comments on the bug, whether a 32-bit machine is affected is somewhat random, depending on the order the files were written to the directory on disk during the package install or upgrade.

Since /var/run is a tmpfs file system, it's contents disappear at reboot/shutdown, and thus the ogl-select service recreates the links in there at every boot.

It's a pain in the butt Alan :-)

Why do the bugs have to keep picking on my poor MSI Wind.

B132 is really cool, I've got it on all my systems now, totally Nevada free.
