The R40 is still a pleasure to use, with one exception: Seems that the freezes I have observed before (and blamed on shaky wireless drivers) are related to the X server — or at least, that’s my culprit of the day. Freezes usually occur some time after a suspend/resume cycle, and I changed the pattern somewhat by removing gpm from the system and installing a new touchpad driver directly into X: Now, applications will be unresponsive, and the keyboard won’t react (no switching to a different console, but it’s still possible to turn on the keyboard light with Fn-F12); the mouse pointer can still be moved.On the positive side, the new synaptics driver is extremely nice — moving the finger along the right side of the touchpad, for instance, can be used for scrolling inside windows.I’m also playing around more with wireless drivers for the Centrino. There’s progress in fixing the ndiswrapper rmmod issue; also, the Intel driver works amazingly well — when I grumbled about it the other day, I had just experienced another frozen X server, and that pattern has now turned out to be independent of the wireless driver.
