intelfb on Acer Extensa 5220 (Intel 965GM)

Hello.

I have been searching for forum special for framebuffer on linux. But found 
no one so I write here.
I have laptop Acer Extensa 5220 with Intel 965GM X3100 graphics card.

I have these problems:
1) I must start kernel with vga=0x362 video=intelfb:mode=1280x800
    otherwise the video mode is not changed by intelfb.ko.
    Dmesg show this:
        Non-CRT device is enabled (LVDS).  Disabling mode switching.

    Does this mean on LCD display of laptop mode can be change by 
intelfb.ko?
    Or can I change this behaviour someway?

2) If I omit noaccel for kernel cmd line (e.g. now I have vga=0x362 
video=intelfb:mode=1280x800,noaccel)
    The texts in booting are showed but by scrolling they are scrumbled.
    It looks like some parts of previous line keeps on actual line.
    If needed on 16.9.2008 I can attach a screenshot of machine

Thanks for any replay.

Intelfb on ACER Extensa 5220

Hello.

These are additional info to my problem with Intelfb on Acer Extensa 5220 
with Intel 965GM/X3100 graphic card.

If I perfom a cold powerup with accel=1 than in dmesg I see this

intelfb: Changing video mode is not supported
Switched to NOHz mode on CPU #0
intelfb: ring buffer : space 65464 wanted 65472
intelfb: lockup - turning off hardware acceleration.

I think some magic in initialization is missing, because booting Ubuntu 
8.0.4 Live gives me xorg with HW accelleration. And it works.

gigabit ethernet on Thinkpad X300?

I've just booted kernel 2.6.26 (Debian lenny) on my new Thinkpad X300.
Things seem working OK so far except I can't get gigabit ethernet.
Output from ethtool says:

Settings for eth0:
        Supported ports: [ TP ]
        Supported link modes:   10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 
                                100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 
                                1000baseT/Full 
        Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
        Advertised link modes:  10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 
                                100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 
                                1000baseT/Full 
        Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
        Speed: 100Mb/s
        Duplex: Full
        Port: Twisted Pair
        PHYAD: 1
        Transceiver: internal
        Auto-negotiation: on
        Supports Wake-on: pumbag
        Wake-on: g
        Current message level: 0x00000001 (1)
        Link detected: yes

As you can see both the hardware and the link support full duplex
1000baseT, but I'm getting only 100Mb/s (confirmed by lights on switch).

I tried
