After some experiments with the WireLess LAN and my Samsung X25 equipped with SuSE Linux 9.3, I have found out that the ipw2200 firmware will be only loaded, if the laptop is connected to the power supply. Running on battery the WLAN will not be set up.
But if running these commands after booting:
rmmod ipw2200 modprobe ipw2200
the firmware will be loaded and the WLAN works without further tweakings.
Therefore I have added these commands to
--- network.001 2005-05-02 11:59:26.000000000 +0200 +++ network 2005-05-13 17:57:19.000000000 +0200 @@ -96,6 +96,7 @@ if [ "$ACTION" = start ] ; then + rmmod ipw2200; modprobe ipw2200; ## kls date +%s > $NETWORK_RUNFILE fi
Now there is no manual handling required after boot, when running on battery power. This is not a "clean" solution. Just in case you know a better one, I will be glad to know about it.
With SuSE 10.0 WLAN works out-of-the-box.
There is a bug in the touchpad driver, which let one tap, look like a double click.
Synaptics TouchPad Driver(http://w1.894.telia.com/~u89404340/touchpad/index.html)
If you don't have newer driver versions available
it is also possible to modify the X11 configuration file, changing the
TapButton1 = 2 TapButton2 = 1 TapButton3 = 3
