Hi Jristz, those modules are enabled in the kernel [0] [1], except CONFIG_STUB_POULSBO that was disabled due that generates issues with Intel GMA500 driver [2] [3]

Do you tried modprobe gma500_gfx, iwlwifi and iwldvm? Those modules are included on our kernel. I checked with modinfo command and the kernel shows the information about each of the mentioned drivers.

iwlwifi won't work without nonfree firmware. One of such modules was disabled since it made booting slower when it couldn't load that firmware.

what module for iwlwifi is nonfree
modinfo report that mac80211, bfg80211, iwlwifi, iwldvm, samsung_laptop, bluetooth, btusb, wmi, mxm_wmi
all are gpl..

for other side gma500 give MORE problems with this module not build that build (I have a gma500) as far I thest in the worst case not build it make artifact and not refresh the ttys

but for other part I want test it in the next iso (as far I know is stable in 3.6)
or is possible make that tose modules only load if I say it (modprobe) and manitain dissabled if I not load them (for workaround the bug mentioned upper and the slow boot)???

The firmware that they need to run on the wifi card is nonfree. The modules themselves are free, just not useful without that firmware. I'm just writing that enabling these modules won't solve the original problem.

mtjm are right, in the deblob script shows it [0]:
