Is it 3.2 or 3.1?

I just confirmed it's 3.2.  It isn't an automatic install on dist-upgrade yet, so I think I'll hold off putting that kernel on my netbook till the dust settles a bit.

Re: linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.1-686-pae now in backports

Good morning 52.  Could you take a peek inside your new kernel and tell us if it offers Broadcom support, specifically 4313, please.  smile

Apparently Google doesn't know

Your search - does new linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.1-686-pae offer broadcom 4313 support - did not match any documents.

It did on a 4313 machine I used with Parted Magic - 3.2 kernel from Sid at the time, out of the box support with brcsmac.

Re: linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.1-686-pae now in backports

I tried 3.2.0 but there was no broadcom support so I had to downgrade to 2.6.39. Actually I re-installed the november release and commented out the backports repo since it was quicker than trying to find an extra lan cable in my junk drawers. This was the 64 bit version but I expect the 686 does not have the non-free drivers.

Re: linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.1-686-pae now in backports

First problem with new kernel:

I have

03:03.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 03)

First reboot after installing the new kernel I have no wifi interface.
Reason: /lib/firmware/b43 has been removed.

Trying to install firmware-b43-installer, what I always did, says my card is not supported, I have to use
firmware-b43legacy-installer.

OK, no problem - I install firmware-b43legacy-installer: it says I have to use firmware-b43-installer.

Had to
cp -av /lib/firmware/b43
from a backup to get wireless working again.

Here are excerpts from /var/lib/dpkg/info/firmware-b43-installer.postinst

# check chip
pci=`lspci -n | grep -o "14e4:[1234567890]\+"` || true
if [ -n "$pci" ]; then
    if [ "`echo $pci | cut -d: -f2`" = "4301" ] && \
           [ "`echo $pci | cut -d: -f2`" = "4306" ]; then
        echo "Not supported card here (PCI id $pci)!"
        echo "Use b43legacy firmware."
        echo "Aborting."
        exit 1
    elif [ "`echo $pci | cut -d: -f2`" = "4315" ]; then
        echo "Not supported low-power chip with PCI id $pci!"
        echo "Aborting."
        exit 1
    elif [ "`echo $pci | cut -d: -f2`" = "4321" ] && \
             [ "`echo $pci | cut -d: -f2`" = "4324" ] && \
             [ "`echo $pci | cut -d: -f2`" = "4325" ] && \
             [ "`echo $pci | cut -d: -f2`" = "4328" ] && \
             [ "`echo $pci | cut -d: -f2`" = "4329" ] && \
             [ "`echo $pci | cut -d: -f2`" = "43b5" ]; then
        echo "Not supported chip: PCI id $pci!"
        echo "Aborting!"
        exit 1
    fi
fi

and /var/lib/dpkg/info/firmware-b43legacy-installer.postinst

# check chip
pci=`lspci -n | grep -o "14e4:[1234567890]\+"` || true
if [ -n "$pci" ]; then
        if [ "`echo $pci | cut -d: -f2`" != "4301" ] && \
           [ "`echo $pci | cut -d: -f2`" != "4306" ] && \
           [ "`echo $pci | cut -d: -f2`" != "4320" ]; then
                echo "Not supported card here (PCI id $pci)!"
                echo "Use b43 firmware. This is just for the b43legacy driver."
                echo "Aborting."
                exit 1
        fi
fi

So, if you have a 4301 or 4306 you can use neither.
Be prepared, make sure you have a backup before upgrading.

Installed with no problems and impressed.

Finally a working kernel with p54pci firmware drivers. I had no luck in the past with previous kernels to work with the wifi firmware cause losing connectivity and so on. I always had to install ndiswrapper for a stable connection.

Re: linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.1-686-pae now in backports

The old kernel has not been removed. You should be able to boot into that kernel from the grub menu, only it will be item 3 or higher.

Re: linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.1-686-pae now in backports

...so just re-install linux-image-2.6.39-bpo.2-686-pae when you're at school...

Have you started a thread to have Dr. Xaos take a look at what's going on with kernel 3.2 and your home wifi?

Re: linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.1-686-pae now in backports

I just installed the new kernel by some freak accident. yikes I just clicked "mark all upgrades" .  I actually got worried because I noticed my HD had almost zero space when I did it. maybe 500mb.  It works fine except there's this annoying issue with my mouse pointer.

EDIT : Fixed the issue with the mouse... it was the x-org driver...

So no problems yet.

eeepc1000h.
1gb ram

Cheers
