Wifi and sound issues in Linux...

I've been trying to streamline Linux-pf 4.0 to my specific hardware so I can fully reap the benefits of using open source instead of Microsoft© Windows®. So far, my boot times are cut in half, and I really like it. But I'm having one major problem. My Centrino 6150 will not work in my custom kernels no matter what I do. I pointed the kernel config at the firmware and set it to build the firmware into the new kernel image. But still nothing. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong here?

On top of this, when the Ubuntu login sound plays on my custom kernels, it snaps, crackles and pops more than a 1940s telephone. This I think I could eventually solve on my own but help here would be appreciated. Here's my lspci on the mainline kernel if it helps, and thanks in advance guys.

Hello ArgentWarrior,

As I understand, you are having difficulties using the Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N + WiMAX 6150 in your system with Linux OS.

The Linux drivers are part of the upstream Linux kernel, and are available through the regular channels, distributions, or https://www.kernel.org/ The Linux Kernel Archives. Intel supports use of the drivers only in the kernel version the driver was a part of.

Driver development is done in the open source Linux community. Development support is only available through the open source community mailing lists. Intel does not provide support for development drivers. The firmware is also required and usually ships with your distribution.

Firmware can be downloaded from the http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git repository of firmware blobs for use with the Linux kernel.

Linux driver downloads and support information are found in the following link:

https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi

You can find additional information and direct links to the latest firmware versions from https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/ wireless.kernel.org in the advisory:

http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/wlan/sb/CS-034398.htm Linux* Support for Intel® Wi-Fi Adapters

For issues with Linux driver and firmware for your Intel® Wireless Adapter, we advise you to use the mailing lists and contact methods of the Linux Community.

So, if I don't try to be bleeding edge and just use 3.19 or something, it should work?

Hello ArgentWarrior,

We advise you to use the Support methods from the Linux community, these are noted in the https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi iwlwif Linux Wireless page.

This is the best source to confirm any actions required on your end, or if the driver/firmware requires modifications to work in your configuration.
