- openSUSE 11.3 is with kernel 2.6.34 and works out of the box. If not install the kernel-firmware package using YaST, but before check you Wi-Fi switch.
- Fedora 13 has kernel 2.6.33 and supports it but it is flaky.
Older kernels may support it if they have backported drivers from 2.6.34 kernel. .
- Debian support for kernel 2.6.32 is in a package named firmware-iwlwifi
For recent kernels (3.x series) there is a known firmware bug, which causes connection aborts and very slow transfer rates. According to a developer at intel (Manuel Grumbach) this will not be fixed.
