This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed' to 'verification-done'.

If verification is not done by one week from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

I have verified that the current proposed kernel does allow for the killswitch to properly work on a machine with chassis type 9.

@Chris, which release did you verify ? Lucid or Maverick or both ?

Chris Van Hoof (vanhoof) wrote :

@Jean-Baptiste verified with Maverick -proposed ... from what I can tell there is not a new Lucid kernel in -proposed that carries this patch.
