MSI and AA1 suspend / resume, OpenSolaris B107

Hi All,

So I've been working with the MSI and AA1 all day, tryiung to work out the issues with suspend / resume.

After going back to B104 on the MSI and getting suspend / resume working, finding out how to get the touchpad working after resume:

#/usr/bin/bash
MODID=`modinfo | grep mouse8042 | awk '{print $1}'`
pfexec modunload -i $MODID
pfexec modload /kernel/drv/mouse8042

Looks like you need to do it twice ???

I did a clean install of B107 onto the MSI, suspend / resume is working perfectly.

The AA1 with B107 started working also, then stopped, then started to suspend / resume, I think it maybe the sdcard driver, but I'm not sure.

They are both great netbooks, the MSI has the 10" screen, plus you can just take the bottom of and get to the HD, Memory and mini pci-e wifi card really easily.

The AA1 is a little smaller so works really well on the road and airplanes.

I love the both of them.

I'm sitting down in my media room, watching American Idol of the HD DVR, just did a VOD of a movie for the first time tonight in HD via DirectTV, at $5.99 it was better than buying a DVD.

I'm using Vinagre to connect to the MSI up in the lab, changing the look and feel.

The laptop I'm on has B107, it's the ECS laptop with the dual core 64 bit and Nvidia card, just spinning around the cube to the different desktops.

Off for a week of ski vacation on Friday, the ski hill here in Washington got 7" snow last night :-)

My wife and 9 year old grand daughter will probably leave me in the powder.

Acer Aspire One with OpenSolaris B107, everything works

Hi All,

Just did a clean install of B107 to the AA1.

Wiped out the previous OpenSolaris install.

Sun only started the project to certify this platform two and a half months ago, now i don't add any drivers during or after install.

You do have to update the /etc/power.conf

Suspend / resume works great.

You will get warning messages from the sdcard driver if you don't have sdcards in the slots.

So:

ethernet works

wifi works

webcam works

audio works, internal speakers and head phone jack

suspend / resume works

sdcard works, I just found out you need to put an sdcard in the right one first, then they both work all the time

USB works

Externel VGA works, shift + F5 to jump between the two of them

Pretty cool

Thanks to all the great Sun engineers who put up with me bugging them to get the drivers working, and all the great users who help test them out.

MSI Netbook suspend / resume B107

Hi All,

So I found out that the latest rwn RALink 2700E driver does not support suspend / resume yet.

I swapped the ralink for an atheros card, you can get the MSI netbook with an atheros bg/n card installed.

Now suspend / resume works accept for the mouse pad that does not work after the resume.

This is what I'll be working on today.

I am doing a clean install of B107 on an AA1, just to check everything still works.
