Fedora Installation :: Install The Broadcom STA Drivers From The Live CD Without Using An Ethernet Cable?
Aug 3, 2011
Since there is no "Additional Drivers" app in Fedora like there is in Ubuntu, how the heck can I install the Broadcom STA drivers from the Live CD without using an Ethernet cable? And how the heck can I ensure that they stay installed, even after installing Fedora? I suppose putting the RPM on a USB Flash Drive will work, but that's the only thing I can think of... And is there an RPM out there for this specific driver?
how I could file share, or make the whole Hard Drive (HDD) accessible to another computer. The two other computers I have are a Toshiba Laptop with Ethernet and USB, and a iMac Intel with Firewire, USB, and Ethernet. Putting these to use along with:
Three Ethernet Cables Two Printer Peripheral USB Cables The Two Computers A 2GB Flash Drive
That is all I can think of right now. I do not want to use CDs. In a way, I would like to do a network boot. So, how do I get the whole HDD visible to the others computers (either/both) and be able to write to it? I want to put Xubuntu on it, and earse the rest of the Hard Drive. The computers getting this are the iMac G3s and the eMac G4. The eMac has 256MB RAM, 40GB HDD, and a 700MHz processor. Two iMacs have 128MB RAM, 40GB HDD, and a 600MHz Processor. The other iMac is the same as the rest but has a 500MHz processor.
I have a laptop and a Broadcom 4322AG Wireless adapter in it. I am using Fedora 11 64 bit Live. instructions to install and configure my internet connection in Linux. I dont know how to install drivers in linux though I have Got a 64 bit driver from Broadcom Website. In windows, my internet connection doesnt need any password to access. It get connected to internet when I turn on wireless.
How can I find out programmatically if a cable has been removed from an ethernet connector where the interface is "up" ??? Without using ping of course. Sidebar question, if I have two interfaces on the subnet how can I force a ping out a specific interface? Say, I have 192.168.5.14 and 192.168.5.13 and I want to throw a ping out *.13 and not *.14 ..
So far I've tried gOS, Linux Mint, Ubuntu, and SuZE. The result is the same: The live disk runs, opens up but the graphics are shoddy, sound doesn't work, everything is very slow, and in attempting to partition and install the os, it stays at "Resizing partitions 0%"I know Live disks are going to be a bit slower, but this is super slow and this computer is just a few months old. Usually the live cds have a database of drivers for common media but it just isn't accelerating the graphics or even recognizing my wireless. I know its not the CDs because they work fine on other (much older) computers.
does someone know a workaround to solve this problem?[URL].. I'm trying to download all firmware on [URL]..I put them on usb key (they are about 12 files .deb) and, during the installation I choose "select driver from alternative" (or something like that) but never recognize it.Seems this card works with tg3 driver but i'm not sure.If there are no way to recognize it from installer, could someone please suggest me an alternative way to install testing on my notebook ?
I've just installed F13 on Acer Aspire 5551G with has Broadcom BCM57780 ethernet card. And F13 does not recognize this card: in System > Administration > Network Devices tab is empty (but in Hardware tab the card is listed). So, I can't connect to the Internet
So far I've found: 1) Related bug for F11. 2) Related thread for F12.
I've tried all possible solutions mentioned in both the bug and the thread, but nothing could convince my F13 to like the ethernet card.
Well I am trying to install the b43 drivers since the default drivers are broken but with the new unity desktop I cannot figure out how. Is there a guide for this yet? The sticky at the top of the forums seems to be for 10.10.
Ok I am a total linux noob, and I was looking through threads and couldn't easily find what I am looking for. I am using a HP Mini 1010nr with broadcom bcm4312 wireless card. I went online and downloaded the drivers onto a USB drive from the broadcom website. All I need to know is what are the commands or the programs I use to install the 32 bit drivers I downloaded?? Sorry I know the answer is in here somewhere but I don't understand what the command is on how to install my drivers from my thumb drive.
I just purchased an HP Pavilion p6710f desktop with an ralink wireless n card, and 11.04 won't recognize it in 'Additional Drivers'. I can't get it to an ethernet cable, and then check for more additional drivers (did this on an old laptop), so what can I do??
I absolutely love Lubuntu on VirtualBox. I installed it to my Compaq Mini CQ-10 without issue. However, there are no drivers for the Wireless or the NIC. Ok, so I go to Broadcom and download the drivers. But, when I try to install with the Makefile, Terminal tells me that make is not installed! Now, how do I install my drivers without make?
How to install Realtek 8139 Ethernet driver? I tried downloading from realtek website. there is no driver for Realtek 8139. Although i downloaded the driver for 8168 for Linux, i could not install it after uncompressing the tar file
I have been learning linux for a year on ubuntu. well, it has been nice but I want a yum centric distro because I really need to learn redhat. anyway, I downloaded the 64bit fedora 14 and I neither get a dhcp or can get ethernet working manually. I can manually assign an address gateway and dns but I cannot ping the gateway, it has been the same address for 5 years so I am certain I am putting the correct settings in (plus I get no ethernet light on the linksys router). I am thus reluctant to wipe clean and move to fedora.I am not sure how to determine my card so I am including this dmesg info for you smart people. Btw ubuntu 10.10 had issues with the ethernet too, I had to use the kernel from 10.04 until a few days ago, after which a software update (of I don't know what) seemed to solve the issue. Are people not responding because I mentioned ubuntu?
Do you have to reinstall Nvidea and Broadcom drivers every time the kernel is updated? The new kernel would not even load to where I could get to my desktop. Help?? I could not even sign in with older kernels. Had to use a Puppy CD to edit my Grub menu.lst so I could sign in on the older kernel.
I just upgraded to Fedora for the first time. I've been using Debian 32-bit forever. I thought I'd try Fedora 11 64-bit. Everything was working fine until yesterday's LAN Party. I could not setup a BZFlag server that others could connect to until I booted up a KNOPPIX 32-bit DVD! Is there something buggy about the 64-bit ethernet drivers or am I missing something here
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my girlfriends laptop a couple days ago...had the Ethernet cable plugged in to do the install...loaded fine the first time after the install. Unplugged the Ethernet cable when I had the wireless network set up and it froze. Restarted and it wouldn't even load the desktop. Didn't make the connection at first...thought there was something wrong with Unity. After about a day and a half worth of searching Unity problems/desktop freezing and solutions, I stumbled across this:
Do you have a Broadcom card? You have probably noticed the desktop works when you run Ethernet but it locks up when your wireless connection is active.
You'll need to upgrade the kernel to fix the issue. 22.214.171.124 did it for me.
11.04 just runs fine now.
This solution was to update the kernel, but that didn't work for me. Now I'm stuck.
I just built my first pc, installed ubuntu 9.10 and tried connecting to the net through my ethernet cable and all that happens is it says cannot find server. Do I need to install network settings & if so what & where,or should it automatically detect them? As this is my first build I am a novice but am willing to listen & learn.
I recently installed a new CPU and motherboard in my Media Server, but the ethernet port isn't showing up under ifconfig. Is there any way to install additional drivers? EDIT: The model is Realtek RTL8111/8160B.
I am trying to run a cable from my wireless router over a 75ft cat6 cable to my bedroom. I don't get any connection on my end and I don't have any other ideas. I did setup a m0n0wall box just to try. I got the network led on my server to light up in my room but nothing more than that. Lastly, I tried adding a 5 port switch in my room and then connecting that to my server and nada.
I am using Ubuntu Server version 10.4, and am trying to connect to the internet via an ethernet cable. This may and probably is incredibly simple, however, I could not find anything that pertains to it.
I am running Ubuntu Linux 9.10 on my laptop and desktop. I would like to transfer files from one to the other using an Ethernet Cross Over Cable. Is there software already installed in the bundle, that would allow me to setup network drives for each machine when the cable is connected. Also how would I setup the configuration.
How can I find a MAC of hardware attached via ethernet cable? I have been working nicely with an industrial scanner that is controlled by a Linux PC via an ethernet cable, but the hard drive has died I need to get it working again. The problem is that the main PCB has a Realtek RTL8019AS ethernet controller chip: [URL] which I believe is used in the most basic way possible, applied straight off-the-shelf and unconfigured. To utilise the chip ARP commands are used to assign an IP address to the chips MAC address e.g. something like:
arp -s 192.168.2.5 00-05-a4-00-a8-f8
Unfortunately the actual MAC address was lost along with the HD Th only thing I could have a reasonable guess at is that the chip will have a default subnet of 255.255.0.0 or 255.255.255.0
