Severity: important

After upgrading to 2.6.26-2 from squeeze, I found that my wireless no

I found that the following patch was needed to 
/etc/acpi/actions/wireless.sh to fix the problem. I have no idea if 
this is the correct or appropriate method to solve this problem, 
however it works for me.
