Change Log: version 0.7.2.1 -- 14 JUL 2011 Updates to acerhk driver source code have been made to enable to driver to compile under Ubuntu 11.04. Many thanks to Peter (a.k.a. - p4trykx) for making the changes necessary to enable this program to continue to provide a service. version 0.7.2 -- 21 AUG 2010 The previous BETA failed miserably at compiling the souce due to an issue with the Makefile in the kernal sources. Thanks to other posts on line, I think I have been able to adapt their solutions to a script file that will automate the installation of the acerhk.ko file. NOTE: My acer computer is getting old and having hardware problems. I have enjoyed writing and maintaining this program, however, once my hardware ceases to function I will have no use for the program... and what is more important, I will have no way to write and test modifications. I do plan on posting on sourceforge and the ubuntu forums if I will no longer maintain this program... but for the present, I will continue to march forward. :) ------------------------------ version 0.7.1 -- 29 APR 2010 Recently a new bug has come up where the pre-compiled acerhk.ko file I was using to download no longer works with the newer kernels. In order to address this issue, this version of AcerHK Gui now downloads source, compiles, and installs the file. In addition to the driver, it will download and install the build-essentials and linux headers. ------------------------------ version 0.7 -- 10 OCT 2009 This version is a very HASTY release. Apparently during my upgrade of Ubuntu 9.10 I somehow lost the acerhk.ko module as part of the kernal. This version may break for the upgrade if the download source becomes inactive. There are NO new features of this program other than adding the download and setup for the acerhk.ko module... thus simplifying the process of getting acerhk working for 32-bit systems. I must emphasize I do not know what effect it will have if run on a 64-bit system and you try to install the 32-bit compiled driver. If anyone knows of a 64-bit compiled version of the driver, it will be to know so I can get it and program a choice of 64-bit or 32-bit versions to be installed. ------------------------------ version 0.6 -- 22 JUN 2009 This version added better modprobe support and options for the user to configure system on first run. - Checks for modprobe success. - Alerts if modprobe unsuccessful. - If modprobe success, added option to modify the /etc/modules file - Checks to see if /etc/modules already has 'acerhk' in it, if so, will not add again. Notifies user of possible problem that the module is in 'modules' but isn't loaded. ------------------------------ version 0.5 -- 18 JUN 2009 - Fixed Typo on the "default path" in the preferences dialog. - Re-located several functions back to main program and removed from the AcerhkguiApp class. - Created several new functions / function place-holders. - Made configuration settings persistent and set config file in ~/.config/acerhkgui/acerhkgui.conf - Previously, stored text file in ~/ that was hidden, now saving it to ~/.config/acerhkgui/ - Wrote code to clean up after previous version (remove .acerhkdriverinfo.txt file) - Began creating foundations for "new mail" feature for pop3 accounts. - NOTE: PW is not secure in present form. Future version will seek to encrypt the password and possibly use the key-ring feature. - Created New Mail settings tab for GUI and values are stored, but not used. - Created 'flag' variable to indicate driver being used. Presently set for the Acer HK driver. Default setting maintained in config file. If the gui capabilities are expanded to provide functionality for other drivers of similar function, this will be incorporated into the GUI. - Fixed issue with Driver Information not being updated if path selected points to wrong location or driver not present. - Added section that will run modprobe to load selected driver. Function will be able to decide which driver to "probe" for based on set driver flag - Added a few more "persistant" pieces of data in saved config file. - Manually entered path data is now checked to see if driver at specified location. ------------------------------ version 0.4 -- 05 APR 2009 - Changed the GUI from wxWidgets to pyGTK - Added Preferences Dialog that displays driver info and permits change of driver path (Not Persistent) - Added GUI notification if the path to driver is not found. ------------------------------ version 0.3 -- 01 MAR 2009 - Added several CLI feedback print statements to facilitate user debug. - AcerHKgui now checks for driver at expected location and prints message to terminal if not found. - AcerHKgui now prints the driver status to the terminal. - AcerHKgui now saves copy of the driver info output to ~/.acerhkdriverinfo.txt - Created several variables for use with GUI. - acerhk status is retained in variable for use in configuration/about dialog - reserved variables for radio status -- hope to implement in GUI - Created several variables to simplify installation of the program if using zip file by changing a couple of variable for location of acerhk driver and acerhkgui programs. ------------------------------ version 0.2 -- 02 FEB 2009 - Updates to the Readme file on installation procedures. - Created .deb and .rpm versions of the program for easier installation and configuration. -------------------------------- version 0.1 There are no changes. This is the initial release.
