Most of the debate about drivers only look at graphics. In my case I have
a laptop, where the
graphic controllers have become the major chipset on the motherboard. I have had trouble with busses, devices, ..everything..

Some of the hardware are not enabled by Fedora, and I had to dual boot with Vista (64bit). Fedora 10 did seem to change behaviour after upgrades done in Microsoft, etc.

Is the interface through some "DSDT" tables ( is that the name for it ?)

Now - for the first time, I have installed XP ( 32 bit ) and drivers. In other words - the hardware descriptions in ACPI may have changed.


- is there a way to save those tables ?
( compare tables from XP and Vista, maybe add them in a bugzilla report if
they are different ? )
