I am having some issues with new netbooks I got. Acer Aspire One 722’s with the AMD C-60 APU and an Atheros AR8152/8158 NIC.
Running fog 0.32 has been great, and I downloaded the latest Kernel from the fog site to no luck. The most current Kernel will have a few errors when I pick anything that uses the bzImage (as normal) and then I get a “snowy” screen. That would make me guess VGA driver load issue.
So I followed [url]http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Building_a_Custom_Kernel[/url] w/ Ubuntu steps and downloaded 3.2.12. I then tried booting, I was able to actually get to into the hardware compatibility test. So that resolved the “snowy” screen issue. However, when I run it, now the NIC (how the heck did it PXE! and bzImage) and Hard Drive aren’t recognized.
From windows I have the following driver details:
NIC: Atheros AR8152/8152 PCI-E FEC (NDIS 6.0) [I wrote NDIS 6.2, but that seems wrong]
Hard Drive: Western Digital
Controller: Standard AHCI 1.0 SATA
So, that hardware seems common, so now I am trying 3.3 and hope that works…but was wondering if anyone could offer some help or insight on how to get this working. It seems like I need to add drivers into the kernel. Or perhaps a difference of the two would shed light on what has changed. I don’t know if 3.2.4 > 3.2.12 vary that much and hopefully 3.3 resolves this…
