Bring on the goodies!

Ubuntu 8.10 – At last. 😉
OpenBSD 4.4 – Early. 🙂

OpenBSD 4.4 finally has support for my Huawei E220 UMTS/G3 modem (a.k.a. “T-Mobile Web & Walk Box Micro”) in the default installation. Granted, that’s at least one year late. Nevertheless, I have already used the E220 with an OpenBSD snapshot release, several months ago. The really good thing is that the OpenBSD implementation of the Huawei E220 serial interface runs circles around the shady E220 hack that is still required to get the thing up and running on Linux. 🙂

  1. Hey, I appreciated your report on Ubuntu on the U6. I just installed 8.10 and suspend seems to work perfectly, though I had to manually patch the webcam file for the webcam fix to work. I am currently having trouble with the microphone but I haven’t tried to fix it quite yet as I don’t have anywhere to play sound at the moment. I just wanted to say thanks pretty much.
