kernel 2.6.32 eeepc_laptop module on Eee PC 1005HA [SOLVED]

I have an Asus EeePC 1005HA, and I've noticed too regressions ever since I upgraded to 2.6.32

1) eeepc_laptop module does not load anymore

FATAL: Error inserting eeepc_laptop (/lib/modules/2.6.32-ARCH/kernel/drivers/platform/x86/eeepc-laptop.ko): No such device

2) Volume control hotkeys don't work anymore. It may be my imagination, but the volume level also seems way lower.

Any ideas?

Re: kernel 2.6.32 eeepc_laptop module on Eee PC 1005HA [SOLVED]

bump. I scoured google and our forums, but I seem to be the only person with this issue. I actually had to switch back to windows temporarily (blech)

Re: kernel 2.6.32 eeepc_laptop module on Eee PC 1005HA [SOLVED]

I also noticed the module doesn't load in 2.6.32. The module itself is owned by the kernel 2.6.32 package.

I think the volume hotkeys are controlled by this module as "description: Eee PC Hotkey Driver" in the module description suggests.


Instead of downgrading to windows, I downgraded to 2.6.31...

edit: I have the eeepc 1000h

Re: kernel 2.6.32 eeepc_laptop module on Eee PC 1005HA [SOLVED]

I don't know if it is related but /sys/class/rfkill/* is also missing so not much of acpi-eeepc-generic actually works.

The LED for Wlan turns on and off when pressing the hotkey but I guess that's in the rt2860 module anyway. However the wlan interface wlan0 itself does not go away, it always stays there but does not recognize any wireless. This is a different issue I guess.

edit: Ah and /sys/devices/platform/eeepc/* is also missing. That is maybe more related.

I'm experiencing exactly the same problem, and I have the exact same EeePC model (1005HA).

I, too, am the owner of an EeePC 1005HA (non-Premium version, so no Bluetooth), and I have these exact problems, along with the wireless device vanishing from `ifconfig -a` (although eth0 now appears non-bugged if I modprobe atl1c; that's an improvement over several months ago).

Re: kernel 2.6.32 eeepc_laptop module on Eee PC 1005HA [SOLVED]

Nice :-( I have now no ethernet with atl1c, nor other atl whatever on my EEE 1005 (with .31 module atl1c was working).  I don't even see the card in lspci, nor there is eth0 listed by ifconfig -a command. Has anyone any suggestion? Reverting to .31 for now I guess.

Re: kernel 2.6.32 eeepc_laptop module on Eee PC 1005HA [SOLVED]

Hi,
I'm new on this forum (and on arch too...2days on these distribution and i think i will never let her. Never.) ,
I've got a 1005ha-b (non premium version) and I also confirm that the eeepc laptop module don't work for me. (what a suprise after 4 comments like these:) So the Fn + vol +/-/mute don't work anymore.
I also notice that I have a regression in my glxgears (30fps, who cares...?)
But, and thats a big but for me, the wifi signal and quality is improve (can i say that like that? .. Oh my english is soo bad..I didn't have prettys english teachers at school..Shame on french school)
Anyway, It's better and It's good (as good as my 2.6.31 with compat-wireless bleeding edge drivers)

I've noticed an improvement on my wireless signal also! I normally use my netbook on the same place, and now instead of 40-45% I'm getting 60-65% signal!

I have the same problem, reverting to .31 temporarily solved the problem.

Btw, 1005HA users, I wrote a quick wiki entry for the 1005HA, feel free to add the solution to this issue if you find it.

Re: kernel 2.6.32 eeepc_laptop module on Eee PC 1005HA [SOLVED]

Same here: no eeepc module and volume seems lower.

But wifi seems to be more stable (no more "probe response" errors causing disassociation from the access point) and I have no issues at all with the ethernet card.

Re: kernel 2.6.32 eeepc_laptop module on Eee PC 1005HA [SOLVED]

I found an workaround on th internet. Add to your boot options in grub:

acpi_osi=Linux

This worked on my 1005HA-H (BIOS 1102).

Sadly this didn't make my ethernet card appear under 2.6.32.2, ifconfig -a still does not lits eth0 nor lspci does show the card.

That worked on mine as well (the volume keys work again). Many thanks. smile

(I found that I had been blacklisting the ath9k module in rc.conf and that was why the wireless interface disappeared. lol Silly me.)

Re: kernel 2.6.32 eeepc_laptop module on Eee PC 1005HA [SOLVED]

Hm, I have atl1c explicitely in modules in rc.conf and atl1e banned, could someone, whose LAN on EEEPC 1005 works paste me his lsmod and lspci?

Re: kernel 2.6.32 eeepc_laptop module on Eee PC 1005HA [SOLVED]

It worked here too,
could someone explain why it is necessary to specify acpi_osi=Linux as an option to pass to the Linux kernel itself !?

Re: kernel 2.6.32 eeepc_laptop module on Eee PC 1005HA [SOLVED]

It works fine for me, but then again this is a custom kernel.

2.6.32-ARCH
[bran@ra-nb ~]$ lsmod|grep eeepc_laptop
eeepc_laptop           10865  0

same here. wireless works again but wired is dead. I had to do Fn-F2 to turn on the wireless card though - right after boot, the network manager said wireless was unavailable. Hit  Fn-F2 and wireless became available again - WTF)
Wired ethernet is not working with this acpi_osi=Linux grub boot option.
This is ok for now - I'd rather have wireless than wired, but still, this is a really crappy that we need this workaround that doesn't even fully work.

I read that bug report but I can't tell if there's a better fix available or on the way. Anyone figure anything out from the bug report or patches?

Ok, so I posted the message right above this a few hours too soon:|

Just updated kernel and kernel firmware and now the wireless works without the acpi_osi=Linux grub boot option. My wired port is working again too.
Yay! Thanks for the updates today!
