Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala beta

I just want to inform you, if you have not tried it yet. Brightness control works out of the box. S1 key works, AV key does not. Headphones jack detection works. Built-in microphone does not. Web camera works in Skype.

Dmesg output when using AV key:


sony-laptop: Unknown event: 0x100 0xa1
sony-laptop: Unknown event: 0x100 0x21

I guess sony-laptop module is without our patch or just a new one. I’ll check sources when I have time.

Stay tuned.

Well it just works =) I’m able to see a picture with Skype and xawtv.

I have thought we need some special drivers, but found that it works by default.

UPD: Not work in Flash. Skype can’t use it anymore, just saying there is no devices… strange.
