Current Issues

  • inserts and removals to the multi-media-card reader are detected and reported in the kernel, but not picked up by Ubuntu at higher levels than that, so no mounting. Nor does the device show up in /dev.
  • Hibernate works fine, but suspend does not. If you activate suspend by agreeing to "turn it on" when asked (if you, for example, set the lid-close action to suspend in System -> Preferences -> Power Management, and turn on suspend (it will warn you), then neither hibernate nor suspend works.
