could you suggest a v3.0 kernel distro, I have only come across one so far but had no X

I have tried both 32 & 64-bit versions, both with the same result :(

I will give the 2.6.39.2 kernel update a try and report back.

Thanks so far.

Vectis.

Parted Magic should be ok (and has 3.0 kernel):
http://sourceforge.net/projects/partedm ... o/download
let me know if that worked for you :)

EDIT:\\
seems that i have found a temporary workaround:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=116471
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1744809

Code: Select all

solved by adding a /etc/rc.local
setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=00

To adjust the brightness to add to the kernel line:
acpi_osi=Linux
try that :)
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Good for you.

Usually Intel components are readily accepted with the linux kernel .

I agree with francois
Normally, Intel hardwares works without problems with Linux Kernel.

Yes. I enjoyed using Slax for many years but as development seems to have stopped, I think it is time to move on.
