As one of the affected, I can tell you these laptops are a PITA with broadcom wireless chips and also the RTC problem. So now it comes out that something on the MOBO is fubar, no kidding. People have been saying for months that the BIOS is not APIC compliant considering that everytime I try to set the RTC I get a total kernel hardlock
. The new b43 wireless drivers don't work with the brandnew 2.6.24 patched kernel. These two system series are probably responsible for 90% of all problems on forums with wireless stack. And HP refuses to fix their broken hardware/firmware. Thanks HP, thanks for nuthin!
Good post Fitz.
