  1. Great news! I’ve found that patch pretty useful but it was annoying having to re-patch everytime I compiled a kernel

  2. Good work! Have your tried patching the BIOS to enable Intel VT yet? I have and the result is KVM running on this baby! 🙂

  5. Hi,

    I used your solution for headphones and brightness on VGN-FW21Z both working great.

    My question is whether you consider addressing the problem of virtualization being disable by BIOS? I found several solutions on the net but they all were for older vaio models.

  7. This looks to be what i am looking for. As a total greeenhorn with dumb questions.

    I installed 8.1 on a sony vaio vgn-txn25n and have complete updates. my AV keys, volume keys, etc do not function. searching for solutions but the talk is still over my head as new to all of this.

    Is there an easy way for me to fix or do i need to be waiting for your update to make it into the system? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
