    Not Working:
    2, Rest of the Fn keys

    Btw. You guys did great job with BT4, finally as you can see almost every piece of hardware is working properly. Even suspend and hibernate is working as it should. I'll try find solution for the rest Fn keys and build-in mic. Again, Many thanks BT4 team.

    Small quide to fix audio and brightness Fn keys. Actualy I was not able to remap [Fn]+F5,[Fn]+UP and [Fn]+Down for Brightess so instead I'm using combination of Ctrl+F5,Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down.

    Follow these Steps:

    1, Install additional aplications:
    Code:
    apt-get install xbindkeys xbacklight
    2,Create config file for xbindkeys:
    Code:
    xbindkeys --defaults > /etc/.xbindkeysrc
    3, Modify .xbindkeysrc
    Code:
    nano /etc/.xbindkeysrc
    Code:
    	#BrightnessUp
    	"xbacklight -inc 10"
        	m:0x4 + c:111
        	Control + Up 
    
    	#BrighthessDown
    	"xbacklight -dec 10"
        	m:0x4 + c:116
       	Control + Down 
    
    	#VolumeUP
    	"amixer -c 0 sset Master 1dB+"
        	m:0x0 + c:123
        	XF86AudioRaiseVolume 
    
    	#VolumeDown
    	"amixer -c 0 sset Master 1dB-"
        	m:0x0 + c:122
       	XF86AudioLowerVolume 
    
    	#VolumeOff
    	"audiofn.rb"
       	m:0x0 + c:121
       	XF86AudioMute 
    
    	#BrightessOff
    	"screenfn.rb"
       	m:0x4 + c:71
        	Control + F5
    4, Create two small ruby scripts for controling audio dB level and brightness
    Code:
    nano /usr/bin/audiofn.rb
    Code:
    	#! /usr/bin/ruby
    
    	dB_LEVEL = `amixer -c 0 | grep -m1 "Mono:" | cut -d"[" -f2 | cut -d"%" -f1`
    
    	if(dB_LEVEL.to_i > 0):`amixer -c 0 sset Master 0%`
    	else `amixer -c 0 sset Master 85%` end
    Code:
    	nano /usr/bin/screenfn.rb
    Code:
    	
    	#! /usr/bin/ruby
    
    	backligh_stat = `xbacklight -get`
    
    	if (backligh_stat.to_i > 0):`xbacklight -set 0%`
    	else `xbacklight -set 90%` end
    Code:
    	chmod 755 /usr/bin/audiofn.rb
    	chmod 755 /usr/bin/screenfn.rb
    5, Start xbinkeys on startup
    Code:
    nano $HOME/.kde3/Autostart/start.sh
    Code:
    	#! /bin/sh
    
    	#Start Programs on kde start
    
    	if ["$(pidof xbindkeys)" = ""];then
            		xbindkeys -f /etc/.xbindkeysrc
    	fi
    NOTE: If anyone know how to get [Fn]+F5,[Fn]+UP and [Fn]+Down keys working let me know

    Hi Amenemhet,
    Not sure why it's happening but if you log in as non-root user alsa drivers will "stop working". To fix this problem you have to log in as root.

    Usually, working as root is Dangerous!! but BT4 is not common linux distro and almost 70% percent of tools require root privileges. So I prefer instead of sudo all the programs just use root priv.

    Default replace the wireless?

    Which samsung nc10 did you pick up, and did you have to replace the wireless card? I didn't believe that intel chips supported monitor mode and injections. If they do, sweet! I'm looking for a netbook and this is shaping up to be better and better...

    Hi Imperative,
    All the Samsung NC10's coming with the Atheros Chipset. So no need to replace Wireless card.
    I bought version with 2 GB RAM, 160 GB HDD, Intel Atom N270 1.6Ghz. Also the reason I choose Samsung is the battery life.

    Shadow, if it's possible it'd be great if you could run some basic cracks, like aircrack ng and 0phcrack against some longer passwords and give us some times! I'm in the market for a netbook and if this can pull off some decent times it seems to be the best choice.

    Thanks!
