Last night i loaded the latest FC8 on my toshiba satellite l35-sp4068.
it boots fine except for some modules (wifi, toshiba_acpi, etc) but
those problems might be resolved over time.
However what puzzles me is that it runs perfectly when plugged to the AC.
If fc8 is booted and i unplug the AC, it takes over two minutes for
fc8 to "see" that we are now running on batteries.
if i shutdown fc8 then unplug the AC then boot fc8 again, it panics.
kernel starts booting and then panics. it miay be something related to
fc8 not realizing we are running on baterries beacuse if i plug the
laptop again to the AC and boot fc8, it boots perfectly.
some modules do not load.
modprobe toshiba, modprobe toshiba-acpi fail with "device not found".
has anyone experienced fc8 in a laptop where you can boot perfectly
plugged to the ACbut not when running on batteries?
any parameters that can be passed to the kernel at boot?
I have even tried "single" mode at boot, no help.

I tried loading fedora 8 live cd on one Fujitsu laptop and I get black
screen some time after kernel loads.
I tried switching to console and that doesn't work either.
Is there a way to troubleshoot such cases?

Well, I FINALLY got wireless working on my Compaq laptop. I never got the interal Broadcom wlan working, but I got a Belkin USB wirless to work last night, after months of fiddling with it.
Now I have one related problem: My mouse is also USB, and whenever there is heavy wireless activity, my mouse doesn't work at all. Is there a way around this, or is it just the nature of having two USB devices? I thought there was a way to "reserve" a certain bandwidth for each device, but can't find anything on it.
Anyone have any suggestions?
a few days ago I wrote about a problem suspending my laptop with
default kernel and suspend on a HP6910p laptop. Somebody suggested to
take a look to the HAL info DB for the suspend quirks.
Browsing through that page, I've found a command that proved to be
useful to suspend the laptop:
pm-suspend --quirk-s3-bios --quirk-s3-mode
This showed a few issues though, in particular:
* sometimes (empirically 20% of the times) the laptop does not wake up,
while the fan keeps running
* when the laptop wakes up, brightness is low. Using xbrightness does
not help, and the only thing to do is to kill and restart X
I don't know if and how the two things are related, but any suggestion
I have a Dell Latitude D820 laptop. Today, I changed the screen
resolution to something smaller using
Menu>System>Administration>Display, and I can not change it back. The
display used to be set to generic LCD display and the resolution - I
think - was set to 1680x1050. Now the display is set to generic LCD
panel 1024x768 and the highest resolution available is 1360x768. When
I change the monitor type, it simply says the change will not take
effect until I log out and in again, and it does not allow me to
change the resolution to something higher (even though the monitor
type is set to be a generic LCD with some higher resolution). When I
log out and in, the monitor type is set to what it was before (see
Web search has not solved the problem. Neither was I able to find
out what monitor I have, nor what might be the problem. Video Card is
nVidia Corporation G72M.
Any help? Thanks!

Thanks for the advice. I tweaked your config to work for my Intel chipset, with not-so-happy results.
If I set the driver to 'intel', I get single screen out the DVI. However, whenever the screen saver pops up, X exits and take me back to the login screen. If I set the driver to 'vesa', I get single screen out the VGA. But when I boot disconnected from the docking station, video on the LCD is 800x600.

Sorry for cross posting but I'm hoping to find some extra eyeballs to
work through this with me. Here is my initial problem:
I seem to have (partially) solved this by using gstreamer-properties
(thanks Seth!) to set the default input back to PulseAudio from
"Custom". Not sure how that changed, and I'd never heard of this
utility till today.
I'm still left with an unresponsive mic. PA volume meter shows flatline
so it seems to be muted somehow, but everywhere I look shows that it is
Part of my problem is that I still don't really know how all this stuff
fits together -- ALSA, PulseAudio and GStreamer. Furthermore, it was
all working till some recent event (maybe a pupdate, not sure) that
nuked it for me.
Any help in diagnosing sound issues would be most appreciated. I'll
echo my solution back to here and the forum once I get it solved.
