Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Enable Wireless Driver

Jan 10, 2010

I installed the 4gb persistent version to a usb drive to use on a emachines netbook with 250gb hard drive. Everything worked great from USB had the wireless going and all. Decided to install it to the HDD, followed the steps at the Ubuntu start menu, install from USB. Followed all recommended procedures during install, split the HDD in Half (the only thing on there was windows 7 just bought this thing) at the partition window.

Ubuntu loads fine but when trying to load the wireless driver as before with the usb it doesnt activate. I have to enter in a password, it seems to accept it, a download screen comes up, I see keys going over to the wireless icon and....nothing.

Then tried to load up windows 7...uh oh. I see windows 7 and a windows vista os at the initial option screen. I selected windows 7 and it brought me back, so I selected windows vista and now it is having me recover. I chose the basic recovery first hoping it was due to moving the partition. It is recovering now but I am really worried if it's going to work again as windows 7, vista ?, wipe out Ubuntu or what!

Also, already rebooted Ubuntu a couple times, no luck with driver install

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Enable My Installed Wireless Driver?

Jul 20, 2010

I've read a lot about wireless network cards but I haven't found something similiar to my problem. I've a belkin wireless card F5D7000tt and its driver bcmwl5.inf. I think I've correctly installed it because when I use "ndiswrapper -l" i get:

WARNING: all config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper, it will be ignored in a future realease.
bcmlw5.inf: driver installed
device (14E4:4320) present (alternate driver : ssb)

But when I go to Hardware Drivers I see that "Broadcom B43 wireless driver" is not enabled, and when a try to enable it I get an error message:"We are sorry, but the installation of this driver failed. Check the register archive to see more details: /var/log/jockey.log"

Anyone knows how to enable Nvidia drivers from command line ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Activate Proprietary Driver - ATi 6850 / Enable This?

May 21, 2011

Upgraded to Natty,just after I got this new GPU - ATi Radeon HD 6850.

I cannot activate the driver for it, I have also tried to download and install from AMD but it didn't work. I cannot open the catalyst control centre that is already installed.

When I try I get this.

"system error: Install archives() failed"

When I open the software update application I get this

"Items cannot be installed or removed until the package catalogue is repaired. Do you want to repair it now?"

So click yes. The process is:
"Repairing broken deps and states "Finished" code...

I have tried to use this guide https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troublesho...thRadeonDriver
to remove the files but it won't let me remove.

Ubuntu Installation :: Broadcom Wireless LAN Driver - ISO File

Jun 19, 2010

installing the Broadcom Wireless LAN driver. I am working from an HP Pavillion dv6-2 2150us (if that has any relevance). The problem seems to be with the installation method I have used. I burned the ISO file properly onto a CD, but I did not install through the disk boot-up method. The reason for this is because I couldn't partition my HDD correctly (I am trying to dual boot with the Windows 7 OS already installed). So, I installed Ubuntu via the option from the CD Installer through Windows 7. I am not sure how to go about getting and installing the Broadcom Wireless LAN driver onto Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Activate Nvidia Driver Or Get Wireless After Reinstall Of 10.10

Oct 25, 2010

so i got myself in way over my head too soon with Ubuntu but i really like the OS.. I installed 10.10 on my HP laptop according to the directions on [URL]. Everything went well and I had no problems until I came across a thread about aircrack-ng.. I decided to test how vulnerable my own connection was after getting scared by looking up some how-to videos on ..... that made it look a little to easy. I was having a ton of problems with the injections tests and couldnt get it to work. I was trying to patch my ath5k driver according to some threads i found on this forum and couldn't get it to work. I finally found a thread somewhere about editing the base.c file to fix the driver. Well, being a noob i have no idea what i did but it wasn't good... yep, shake your head.. i deserve it haha.. anyway....

When i rebooted the comp after finishing the editing process it came up with all kinds of errors and brought me to a grub rescue prompt.. Yikes!! luckily i had Ubuntu 10.10 on a usb so i restarted, tried to delete the partition it was on with gparted and then tried to reinstall it.. The installation worked and now I can boot into windows again from the grub loader with no problems, but Ubuntu is all screwy.. Windows connects to the internet and doesn't seem to be phased in the slightest bit but ubuntu won't let me stay connected to any wireless networks and I also get a failed message when i try to activate the nvidia driver in Ubuntu.. Man, did i learn a lesson about getting ahead of myself and trying to bite off more than I can chew! I really love Ubuntu and the open source ideal so I don't want to let this sour me..

At the partition select prompt when I reinstalled ubuntu I selected "partition my drive manually" or something to that effect. Should I have installed it along side windows via the other option? I have a feeling my problem was compounded when i tried to erase the partition Ubuntu was on but now I'm totally lost and I really don't want to screw up my comp any more! I figured it's time to ask for help instead of shooting in the dark searching random threads for a similar experience which may not be similar at all.

Is there a way to repartition everything from windows without losing my data and reinstalling Ubuntu? I didn't have anything worth saving on Ubuntu but i have about 100gb worth of stuff on my windows partition i don't wanna lose! If I forgot to add any necessary information let me know and i'll be happy to provide any info I can.

Ubuntu :: Compaq 311c - Booting After Wireless Driver Installation

Jun 17, 2010

I've decided to try Linux again after a 5 year gap - in around 2005 I installed Suse (I think and I'm not sure of the version) to an Hp laptop and, back then I got hugely frustrated that I had no sound, couldn't for the life of me figure out how to install the driver and gave up after around a week. new company, new laptop, thought I'd try again in 2010 - I'm trying to use the laptop as a work machine mainly, but for dj-ing in an emergency, so I need a 2nd Os and Linux fit the bill. I've got 10 years of It experience, though these days am a Project Manager by day. I've technical enough, but don't have much time.

Naturally I assumed that, by now, everything would be nice and smooth. And, at first, it was - I chose Debian Studio edition (low latency) found a usb linux creator (this is a netbook so no cd drive), Linuxlive usb creator, made up a usb key of Debian 10.04 (desktop edition, as I was informed this was the standard and that I could upgrade to studio after), partitioned my drive, installed and.... Black screen, flashing cursor.

Ok - found some instructions that told me how to work round that...did...but then couldn't get wireless (I've only got wireless internet). ended up, after a day of fiddling with 'blacklisting' drivers, deciding their must be something wrong with my install, so started again with the 'netbook' edition of debian 10.04. This time it boots. Still no wireless.

Now I find people saying things like "blacklist this driver" (b43 and b44) and "connect to the internet and install this driver". Only one problem - only wireless internet - if I go to install more drivers it tells me there aren't any. So I think "I'll install a driver from usb". Naively assuming that by now it'll be a self contained installable package like windows and osx. I find that I need an 'STA' driver (and frankly by now I've spent a long time on forums - this was meant to be easy). Ok - I find the 802.11 Linux STA driver on the broadcom site (can't post links here yet). ownload the 32 bit version, stick it on a key...read the readme and.... Frankly, I'm one step away from trying to roll this all back. I cannot believe I need to be in a 'terminal' typing;

# lsmod | grep "b43|ssb|wl"
# rmmod b43
# rmmod ssb
# rmmod wl

and so on.

either way, I plough on and get to # insmod wl.ko but it says it can't find it. how to install this driver? Is it even the right one? PS I'm staggered Linux is still so non techie friendly.

Ubuntu Installation :: Doesn't See Any Wireless Card - (driver) With Wiping Vista?

Jul 8, 2010

I just bought a netbook, HP DV2-1039WM, which comes with Vista. I wiped the hard drive and installed Ubuntu 9.10. A problem has arisen in that it doesn't see any wireless card. There is a button on the side with an indicator light that is used to enable/disable wireless. The light is amber and, according to the manual, it is supposed to be blue when wireless is working. The manual just says "push the button" to turn it on, which doesn't do anything.

I recently installed a dual boot on my desktop with Windows 7/Ubuntu, which doesn't have any problems. Are there driver/hardware issues with the setup I am trying on this netbook? The HP website only has drivers for windows OSes listed. Theoretically, I could reinstall windows and/or do a dual-boot, but I'd rather just keep only Ubuntu on it if possible.

I am using OpenSuse 11.4(32 bit) on my Lenovo B460 laptop, and as the title points, am unable to use wireless on it. The 'enable wireless' option from icon menu is not greyed out, however clicking it does nothing, it remains disabled.

Ubuntu Installation :: Wireless Driver Install Error On Liveusb For Dell Inspiron Mini 9

Oct 5, 2010

I have a persistent liveusb with ubuntu 9.10 that I installed using the method on [url]

I use it on a Dell Inspiron Mini 9 netbook (that boots Mac OS X from its SSD). An ubuntu persistent liveusb works just great for occasional linux development and testing, but ubuntu 9.10 will be EOL next year, and I want to stay current.

I've installed ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS on a liveusb using the method on [url]

After I've booted the liveusb, under the network menu I see this:

Wireless Networks
Device not ready

A menu appears that looks like a PCI card with a lock on it. I select the only item under that menu, "Install Drivers". This gives a dialog that says "No proprietary drivers are in use on this system. Proprietary drivers do not have public source code..." etc. Under Ubuntu 9.10, I could at this point select "Broadcom STA wireless driver" and click the "Activate" button, and it would work. So I did that in 10.04.1.

It says, "Downloading and installing driver..."

While it's doing this, the "kerneloops" menu item appears. Then a dialog that says,

Sorry, the package "bcmwl-kernel-source +bdcom-0ubuntu3" failed to install or upgrade.

Then another dialog that says

SystemError: installArchives() failed.

What the heck is happening here?

Well, it turns out that the error messages are wrong. I restarted and the DM9/ubuntu 10.04.1 was able to connect to the wireless network.

tl;dr: Proprietary wireless driver installation works, but it claims that it doesn't.
