I have an Acer Timeline 1830T. When I install 10.10 and 11.04 it needs to have the
acer-wmi module blacklisted for wireless to work.
I think I need to file a bug on the linux kernel but I am not sure. I've heard the term "quirk" being thrown around by developers when it comes to fixing something so that it works on certain pieces of hardware.
Is this indeed a kernel bug? What steps should I take to ensure that this gets reported so that everyone with my laptop doesn't have to go through this over and over?
