Current Issues

  • HAL won't start when concurrency=shell on /etc/init.d/rc, works normal if is set to "none"
  • Audio (HDA Intel) is buggy, fixed adding options snd-hda-intel model=3stack to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base

  • Monitor reports wrong physical dimension
  • Will not wake up after suspend
