Re: [Bug 1513930] Re: linux-firmware breaks support for Lenovo Z580


I am *so* impressed with Ubuntu's tech support.  Rather than investigate
one of two updates that were delivered last night, they mark a bug
report as "invalid" so they can maintain their bug fix quota.


When 15.04 reaches EOL, I'll try upgrading to 15.10 again.  If there are
any problems, I'll switch back to Debian or OpenSuSE.  At least they
*try* to fix bugs instead of worrying about their quotas.

  linux-firmware breaks support for Lenovo Z580

Status in linux-firmware package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The latest update (2015.11.06) for Ubuntu 15.10 linux-firmware breaks
  support for the Lenovo Z580 laptop.  USB devices stop being recognized
  and the network card/chipset cease functioning, preventing you from
  getting online.  I've had to reinstall Ubuntu 15.04 in order to get
  back to a working state, and will no longer consider upgrading to
  15.10 again until I am forced to do so by the 15.04 EOL.
