xubuntu 12.10 on an MSI X320

10:56 am Uncategorized

Hopefully this saves someone some time. I have an old MSI X320 laptop that I was having trouble with to the extent I was trying to justify buying a brand spanking new MACbook pro retina to replace it. Alas I found out how to make it work just fine. xubuntu 12.10 pretty much installs out of the box. You then just need to disable the sdhci module by putting sdhci_pci.blacklist=yes in the boot command line and iwconfig wlan0 power off in /etc/rc.local to stop the power saving on the wireless connection that periodically hangs the machine and makes wireless access very spotty.
