Intrepid is a bleeding disaster, I cannot believe how many things broke with
the upgrade from Hardy.
Clawing my way back up, I'm nearly there, but two issues remain:
- The 3Com Cyclone PC card I need to use (this is a very old laptop ...)
always comes up half-duplex; how do I force it to full?
- Got rid of wpa_supplicant and successfully configured the D-Link WNA 2320
card with network manager. Problem is, I need to manually modprobe the ath5k
driver to activate the connection, how can I automate that? I thought hald
or udev would do that for me?
Another minor annoyance is that the gnome desktop doesn't return to the
previous session - the Preferences/Session/Remember Currently Running
Application setting doesn't seem to do anyhthing.
