In my acer 5745,all the Fn/multimedia buttons work flawlessly except for Fn+F3 which is for bluetooth and wireless. The bluetooth and wireless is always on.

Just curious if this is due to special network manager ceni in aptosid. As a matter of fact it does work in k/u-buntu/mint distros (while using gnome as well as kde)

Edit:
This was obsolete nonsense - see slh's answer.

You have to rebuild the module after installation of a new kernel.

This is wrong, one the one hand acerhk is patched into our kernel for ages already, on the other hand acerhk and its custom ioctl interface only covers old notebook generations (built until 2004); newer ones use acer-wmi (or acerhdf for netbooks), which is mainline as well. acerhk-source is obsolete and not to be used on aptosid, otherwise stuff breaks.
