In order to make my openSuSE 11.0 sound work I update the BIOS into latest version (that 3315). After updating the BIOS my linux cannot start normally, I must add option acpi=off.
I also try to reinstall and fresh install the linux, same problem I must add acpi=off, if I not add this option, the setup stop at Updating Drivers (something like that).
Ok then, I add option acpi=off at boot option make me can go into my linux. But then two problem cames up:
1st. My battery monitor is dead, plug or unplug keep the status charged.
2ng. My WiFI is dead also. It discover any access points but cannot connect to the access point. I have type correct key. Other laptop can connect to that access point except my laptop.
I use ASPIRE 5050 series, with BIOS ver 3315, and Artheros WiFI.
