Wow! Thank you!
I installed gNewSense 3.0 does some time and i hadn't internet wireless through my Netbook's Atheros, then i placed gNewSense 3.1 now and it's working internet normally!
My last experience with gNewSense was weird because i didn't know how to avoid the inicialization with DHCP trouble... i don't even know explain what that was, just which was boring.
Then i started again and wish to get everythings i need around here. I am avoiding to use 'non-100%-libres' GNU/Linux distributions, but hope have some applications as wine and openjdk6 to run Football Manager 2007. There's a exception to Football Manager and maybe could lack something to make run, so i will be trying to run for the fun too.
OpenOffice yet is here. I'll change to LibreOffice. While i don't get my Game again, i will be having fun with Free Software. Thank y'all for putting *EASY* wireless in gNewSense. I think will help us a lot.

There is a -gnu1 for 2.6.35 [0] but it's no longer a supported tree by
upstream [1] (the closest is 2.6.32 which is too old) so something
newer would be better so as to receive security updates, bug fixes,
etc. I have 3.4 and 3.10 currently as long term support kernels.
