Hi I turned of my Wifi module on my Acer laptop, without knowing how.
The internet connection just stopped working, and after I deleted the connection, Pardus was not able to find my WiFi anymore.
My second problem is that my laptop has a cardreader, which is not working, just not responding.

Tips anyone?

I think I may have found what it is.  I have the same problem with my card reader.  I have been trying to configure a new kernel and got to the .config file.  Problem is that I messed it up.  I couldn't find the /boot/.config file for Pardus.  Anyway, on the new xconfig there is a section on turning on the MMC hardware.  If we could find the .config file and run qconf then I think we could fix this.

The .config file is in /usr/src/linux-2.6.18.8-83/ (it's a hidden file). And there is probably also a .config.old file there.
But I don't think building a new kernel should be necessary.

Well, that's the kicker.  My /usr/src folder is empty of all files, hidden or otherwise.  I can't find the config file anywhere.  Building a kernel was something I was doing, trying to get the MMC/SD reader to work.  When making the new config file, I saw the MMC option.  That got me thinking some more about it.

Did you install the kernel-source?:
Code:
sudo pisi it kernel-source

Thanks.  Tried modifying the .config and nothing happened.  I'll have to look around some more.  Froze my laptop up though.  None the less, try and try again...  Cheesy
