I have recently installed Fedora 10 on my eee 1000 and have been doing a lot reading up on the usual list of "standard" mods to do after install. So, having obviously installed the kmod from RPM Fusion (to get the wireless networking up and running) and done the SSD-saving things (i.e. ext2 rather than ext3, no swap file except for hibernation), I am still left with a couple of questions. Only one of them is networking related so I'll only add that one here as follows ...
Although I have made the appropriate changes (i.e. adding "options rfkill default_state=0" to "/etc/modprobe.d/options") to ensure that the rfkill states are set so that wireless networking is disabled at startup (and is then only enabled as required by running a script that updates the rfkill values), then when I first turn on the machine it looks like the wireless networking kicks in for a few seconds during boot up before the changes mentioned above are actioned. I have checked in the BIOS and it appears that the WLAN settings are set to disabled and so I'm confused as to why the wireless stuff kicks into action !!
More importantly though, it's much less about me worrying about being confused and more about the fact that if I take my eee on a plane, then in reality am I currently going to be turning on wireless networking inadvertently whilst in the air (a big no no still !!). Surely there must be a way to stop this being started unless I want to start it manually once I've booted into Fedora ??
Thanks in advance....
