[Bug 784985] [NEW] ACER Easyport IV problems with Ubuntu


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

I have an ACER 8572G dual-booting Windows 7 Pro 64 bits and Ubuntu 10.10
64 bits (and now tirple-boot with Natty). Ubuntu worked reasonably well
(after a bit of fiddling) until I added an ACER Easyport IV. Win 7
performs perfectly with it, but when running Ubuntu the Ethernet and VGA
ports don't work. The sound and USB ports are ok. I updated the BIOS to
V1.20 and disabled the firewall, all to no avail. The problem definitely
lies with Ubuntu 10.10 and 11.04. I installed openSUSE 11.3 64 bits
(triple-boot) and the ACER Easyport IV works perfectly with it. Only
Meerkat and Natty are recalcitrant.
