The latest Kuki Kernel is based on the latest stable kernel from kernel.org (126.96.36.199). For anybody who is interested, the changelog for 188.8.131.52 is located at here.
In addition to what was included in the 2.6.30-05-kuki, the 20090707 kernel has the following kernel settings enabled:
The kernel should now support ntfs filesystems and others that require FUSE.
Fan control now works (ACERHDF). To enable fan control open a terminal and type:
sudo modprobe acerhdf
sudo echo -n “enabled” > /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/mode
(if the echo command fails, just edit /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/mode and change the disabled to enabled)
Card readers should work if booting with a card installed. If not,
add “pciehp.pciehp_force=1″ (without the quotes) to
defoptions in /boot/grub/menu.lst
(success of the right card reader is tied to which internal revision of the aspire one you have)
The kernel is compiled with the “unsafe” options, so you should be able to suspend with a card in the card reader.
If you have an aao 150, and are having wifi problems, you may need to add “blacklist acer_wmi” (without the quotes) to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
Hopefully, with the addition of the above modules, most 3G modems/dongles/tethers should work (no guarantee as I don’t have 3G to test with).
If you have problems with this kernel, there is a special thread in the forum to post issues.
Installation instructions and the new kernel can be found on the Kuki download page.
