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.

Bluetooth on MSI Wind Netbook with BT mouse

Hi All,

 So I followed the instructions here:

http://www.opensolaris.org/os/project/bluetooth/

And actually got an Acer BT mouse talking to B110 on the MSI Netbook.

I think I've figured out the compiz issues it's to do with the xorg.conf

This one works here

I've built the compiz 0.8.0 binaries I'll try to find a place to store them for access (4.3Mb)

We have issue with resume if compiz is running on the AA1, AA1-10 or MSI, engineering thinks they know what's causing it and are workin on a fix.

MSI Wind with B109, Autoscan Network

Hi All,

 So I did a BIOS upgrade to the MSI and B108 started to hang in the suspend again.

  Upgraded to B109 and the suspend / resume works again.

I still have three outstanding issues, touchpad not working after resume even my fix does not work anuymore, processor speed set high after resume and the usb SD / mspro reader is not being seen during insert.

I'm going down to CA for a week March 9th, I've setup to take the AA1, MSI and Elonex to LA to the Sun engineers supporting laptops for the day.

I'm also trying to port Autoscan Network to OpenSolaris see screenshot following of an Ubuntu system.

If I suspend the AA1 or MSI, Autoscan Network see's that it's down, you can actually send a wakeup across the lan and the AA1 or MSI will resume :-)

MSI Wind, fixing the touchpad after resume

Hi All,

 So I went back to B104 on the MSI Wind, just could not really get suspend / resume working on B107.

 Suspend / resume works fine, the touchpad does not work after resume.

If I do this:

modinfo | grep mouse8042
grab the index
modunload -i <index>
modload /kernel/driver/mouse8042

Touchpad comes back on again

So I later found out you really don't have to do the modload, something, is doing it.

Randy F. gave me this:

MODID=`modinfo | grep mouse8042 | awk '{print $1}'`
modunload -i $MODID

I've just put it in a script in /usr/bin, I'll have to find a way to activate it after resume.

MSI Wind Notebook and OpenSolaris B106

Hi All,

 So I'm sitting here surfing the net on the MSI Netbook running OpenSolaris B106.

 It's been a challenge to get OpenSolaris installed, I'll document tomorrow.

 It's a pretty good 10 inch screened netbook for $367.

More tomorrow
