Asus W7S and NVidia GPU 8400m overheating problem

Sintomas da primeira ocorrência da falha

First fail, in January 2008 (Primeira falha, em Janeiro de 2008)

I’ve told you that I don’t think the overheating issue on W7S was something to fear. Well, I need to say I was wrong. I’m sorry for those who believed me, but it really was not anything to fear until some things I’ve descovered this week.

Português: Falei que achava que vocês não precisavam se preocupar com a questão do superaquecimento do W7S. Bem, preciso dizer que eu estava errado. Desculpem-me os que acreditaram, mas até algumas descobertas minhas dessa semana, não havia mesmo nada a temer.  (Continuação da versão em português no final do texto)

Derek’s hack to fix W7S flipped WebCam

I was going to use some of my vacation time to try to fix the vertical flip (upside down) bug in Chicony Electronics WebCam (04f2:b012) in W7S laptop, but decided to take a look on Google again if anyone has already found a fix for that… And I found it!!!

Derek Bruce wrote a small hack to uvcvideo that fixes this anoying bug at kernel module level. Is a very simple sollution, but works very well!!!

Just aply this patch to uvcvideo (content also avaliable at the end of this post). You can download latest uvcvideo from here, or checkout the latest svn version using the following command:

svn checkout svn:// uvc-video

Important note: Default Makefile will put uvcvideo kernel module on the wrong path for Ubuntu, and you may need to change this line on Makefile:

INSTALL_MOD_DIR := kernel/ubuntu/media/usbvideo


INSTALL_MOD_DIR := ubuntu/media/usbvideo

Download the patch file to the uvcvideo source folder, and aply it using the following command:

patch -i uvc-hack.patch

Compile and install the driver using make:

sudo make install

Just reload the kernel module:

modprobe -r uvcvideo
modprobe uvcvideo

And that’s all… your don’t need to flip the notebook anymore to talk with another people! 😉

Thanks a lot, Derek, for this nice patch!!!
