D630 DVD Update

My thanks go to Julien for his comment here. Following his suggestion I downloaded the updated kernel-2.6.22.1-20.fc7.i686.rpm from the Fedora updates/testing/7/i386/ directory. The update does fix the DVD problem. Unfortunately, the kernel update also knocked out the D630s wireless configuration. The wlan0 device no longer exists :-(

Hi there,

I don't get the wireless issue you are talking about.

[anguenot@boka incl]$ uname -a
Linux boka 2.6.22.1-27.fc7 #1 SMP Tue Jul 17 17:13:26 EDT 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Currently using it.

My kernel is just a bit more recent than yours though.

For the sound, I might try out to compile a custom kernel with alsa and intel-hda as builtins instead of modules as suggested in the thread I gave you last time.

I'll keep you posted about that.

Cheers,

J.

Though you've already updated your kernel, I thought I'd let you know that I was able to get the DVD-ROM working with DMA by using the 'piix' module. Check out this thread post for more information:
