Hi

I'm running testing on my Asus M6Ne laptop and i'm having a few
problems.
I compiled a new kernel based on 2.6.11.10 patched with bootsplash
and proper support for my synaptic touchpad. This kernel was
compiled while running Sarge and was working fine.
But instead of backporting to much, such as Xorg and gnome 2.10 I
decided to upgrade to Testing, but i'm having trouble with my
wireless (Intel 2200BG).
I can't create a working module with the 1.0.8, so i tried the 1.0.3
which also worked flawless with Sarge. So i compiled a module with
1.0.3 without any problems and place the firmware upgrades in
'/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware'. After reboot this appears in dmesg and
the same if i try 'modprobe ipw2200'.
eth0: RXcsums[1] LinkChgREG[0] MIirq[0] ASF[0] Split[0] WireSpeed[0]
TSOcap[1]
ieee80211_crypt: version magic '2.6.11.10 preempt PENTIUMM gcc-4.0'
should be '2.6.11.10 preempt PENTIUMM gcc-3.3'
ieee80211: version magic '2.6.11.10 preempt PENTIUMM gcc-4.0' should
be '2.6.11.10 preempt PENTIUMM gcc-3.3'
ipw2200: version magic '2.6.11.10 preempt PENTIUMM gcc-4.0' should
be '2.6.11.10 preempt PENTIUMM gcc-3.3'

I tried to compile a new kernel cause i needed to patch some other
thing and couldn't recompile the 2.6.11.10 kernel. So i think the
GCC error is affecting more than just the wifi-module.

I wondering if it would make more sense to go back to Sarge and
start backporting.. ;-)

Beside my one major problem i have two minor.
1) CPUfreq scaling isn't working in testing, it did with Sarge, but
i can live with that.

2) Sometimes the mouse or keyboard freezes up and there is nothing
to see in dmesg or syslog. FX i pressed ctrl + Enter to send a mail
and usb mouse, keyboard and touchpad frooze! Then i pressed ctrl +
Enter again and they worked again! Anyone seen anything like that!?
Once a had to restart my xserver to get the mouse/touchpad to work
again. This only in testing this is happens..


That was many problems, but the wifi is my main concern. I almost
never use cpu-scaling and though the input-freezing-thing is
annoying, i can live with that. After all it is testing...
