Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) Beta Released
I installed Feisty on a R51 Thinkpad with a Broadcom 43XX wireless mini pci card. I finally gave up and dd'd my hdd img backup file back to the disk. As usual the BCM43XX module autoloaded and didn't work so I had to blacklist it. Then the ndiswrapper version that installed (1.9?) via apt had some strange issues. I know it's a lot of the problems with Linux & wireless are the fault of the hardware manufacturers, but this is one huge weakness with Linux in general vs. Windows. It reminds me of the pci modem issues when they first arrived on the scene back when. Bad news is Linux still has issues with some PCI modem chipsets. Automatix usually handles 3D and codecs particularly well (when the site is up..).
