You are not alone.
It's really odd: the -AMD64-k8-smp kernel not only doesn't seem to have
a driver for my wifi
(which the regular AMD64-generic kernel does have), but if I try to
activate the card,
the machine freezes up to the point where I have to press the reset
So for now, I'll stick with only utilising the processor as a single
core.. I'll try again when Dapper is released.
Anyone else see this, and have a solution?
My wifi card is a Gigabyte one (free with my motherboard!)
