hacking: wifi & suspend?
Wondering if anyone has worked out how to init and shutdown wifi and suspend and resume on the touch outside of using the nickel?
I tried in vain to get suspend working but all I managed to do was hang the machine requiring reset after reset until finally I corrupted the database (I presume, it just wouldn't work until I hard reset, then my windows hdd decided to die, so it was a long journey before I could even read books again, only thanks to virtualbox: it's totally absurd that you even need windows to activate a wifi device). While I was coyping some big files I also got some write failures on the embedded sd-card which forced ext4 to read-only mode, so perhaps I have a dodgy sdcard as well.
I was doing something along the lines of
echo "mem" > /sys/power/state
after setting "enabled" on all the devices for "wakeup". But nothing will wake it up. I also tried downing the network and removing the network modules, but I don't know if i succeeded or not: it didn't work at any rate.
strace of nickel found me nothing useful.
For wifi I tried insmodding the 2 modules which are loaded when the network is up, but that did nothing on it's own to create eth0.
Anyone had more luck?
