Ubuntu / Apple :: Cannot Get Wireless Driver To Load At Boot Time

Mar 14, 2010

I followed the instructions that came with the 802 .11 Linux STA driver and was able to initialize my card and connect to a protected network! The instructions also tell me how to load the drivers at boot time, but I get an error when I try to run


# sh: for i in `find /lib /var -name wl.ko`; do mv $i ${i}.orig; done

The message returned is


bash: syntax error near unexpected token `do'

Upon restarting, my wireless is no longer active. My card is Broadcom Corporation BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)

Ubuntu / Apple :: Auto-load Apple Wireless Keyboard?

Apr 22, 2010

This morning I bought an Apple wireless keyboard and I got it connected through Blueman. It works like a charm, but I have on problem;

When I log out I can log back in by typing in my password. However, when I restart the computer it seems that bluetooth is not loaded yet and I cannot enter my password. So I have to log in using my wired keyboard, and then disconnect & re-connect to my wireless keyboard using blueman before I am able to use the wireless keyboard.

Is there any way that I can already auto-load bluetooth and connect to my keyboard before I log in?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Cannot Activate Broadcom STA Wireless Driver

Jul 10, 2010

After successfully installing Ubuntu Karmic on a friend's MacBook 3,1 I tried to get the wireless working. On the Live CD, the Broadcom STA driver worked fine, but now that I've finished installing, I'm having problems. The driver is installed, but Hardware Drivers says it isn't enabled. I try to activate it, put in my password, and the "Enabling Driver" dialog pops up for a split second, disappears, and the driver doesn't get activated. I've tried Google to no real avail.

Ubuntu :: No Wireless Driver - Disconnects Every Time Trying To Go Online

Aug 5, 2010

I've just installed Ubuntu on a new netbook, getting rid of windows in the process. I had tried it on another computer, installing it alongside Windows, and liked it enough to want to install it fully on my new netbook. I followed instructions, downloaded it to a USB stick, and then installed it as per the instructions on the Ubuntu website. All seemed fine until I tried to connect to my wireless network, when it appears there is no wireless driver. I tried plugging in the ethernet cable, but it just disconnects me every time I try to go online.

General :: Start X Server And App At Boot (or Services Load) Time

Oct 14, 2009

I need to start an application (graphical) when the PC start, even before anybody login, and use/launch a specific user. Now only can do this manually; when gdm starts, switch to any text tty [ie. Ctrl + Alt + F1], then I login into the special user, start a X server, export the DISPLAY environment variable, and start the application.

With this steps:
$X :1 -verbose -nr -nolisten tcp &
# Maybe Metacity -> $ metacity
$export DISPLAY=:1
$JavaApp &
Now i need put this steps (script) in some place to launch the app automatically, and with and specific user [ie. manager].

How can I made it? Maybe in init.d? or an special xinitrc? And how can start the app with the specific user? And, if is possible, who can stop the app when the system going turn off? I have Debian 5.0 and a beginner knowledge of shell script.

Software :: Increase The Accuracy Of Function Get_rtc_time() - Get Time Of Wall Clock From Wireless Driver

Oct 24, 2010

I am trying to get the time of my wall clock from my wireless driver in form of "hh:mm:ss", so I used the function get_rtc_time() inside my driver to get that and it was done. My question: Is it possible to increase the accuracy of this function, for example if I want to get the milliseconds and the Microseconds in additional to the first output? If not, Is there any other function can do that?

CentOS 5 Networking :: Starting Wireless At Boot Time On SSH Box

Dec 31, 2010

I have a SSH box which is command line only and no X, this will be used remote and i'm trying to get the wireless network configured to start at boot. I'm using wpa_supplicant as the access point is secure with WPA2 At present if I send the following commands the machine will connect to the wifi and be reachable via ssh

ifup wlan0
/usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -D wext -dd -i wlan0 -B

This does not start at boot but requires manual input of the above commands. I've just come to a complete blank on geting this to start at boot time. Also I would like to set a fixed IP for this box.

General :: BM4321 Wireless Chip Won't Load On Boot In Mint / Solution For This?

Jun 8, 2011

I have a Realtek WN511b wireless card with a BM4321 chip.
It runs on the wl driver but when I boot the system the card won't install.
With help (I am noob) we have figured out that the ssb and the b43 drivers are installing even though I have them blacklisted. I have seen similar problems described elsewhere but no real fixes.
I can boot the system (Dell d630) then pop the card out and re-insert, enter password and it connects no problem.
It would be nice if it simply installed on boot.
Wondering if anyone had a solution?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: WLAN Module Doesn't Load Automatically At Boot - 11.4 KDE X86_64?

Mar 21, 2011

Using tips provided in the "Sticky" posts, I have identified my wireless device -- BCM4322 -- and installed the necessary firmware and drivers. The device appears in Network Manager until system reboot, at which time the "ssd" driver module is loaded instead. After each boot I must execute the following commands to remove ssd and load the Broadcom driver:

rmmod ssb
modprobe lib80211
modprobe wl

The Broadcom README file provides directions to load the correct module automatically, but the commands appear to be incompatible with openSUSE 11.4. I'm happy to provide additional detail if needed

Fedora :: Load A Print Driver And Network Driver For An MX860 Printer?

This is my first attempt with Yum and Fedora for that matter. I need to load a print driver and network driver for an MX860 printer. I downloaded the drivers and they are in the download folder. When I try to install I get what is below. How do I resolve? Do I need to identify where the driver is? If so, how?

OpenSUSE Install :: WPN111 Wireless Adapter And NETGEAR - Make The Module Load Automatically On Boot ?

Feb 14, 2011

Above adapter can be installed on v10.2 and 11.3 using ndiswrapper:-

1. Copy the 3 driver files from Windows:- like netwpn111.inf, WPN111.sys & ar5523.bin.
(Be carfeul about the exact names, because they have changed over time).

2. sudo ndiswrapper -i netwpn111.inf

3. sudo ndiswrapper -m

4. sudo modprobe ndiswrapper (the adapter should light up at this point and networks will be detected shortly after - see network manager). (Be careful of paths here - e.g. I had to use /sbin/modprobe - so 'whereis' may be necessary to find these commands).

2nd When I reboot, I need to run the modprobe command again. How do I make the module load automatically on boot? Also (and this is minor), can I bypass the KWallet, keyring thing? it seems silly to enter a password for the keyring and then click another password dialog, when I can just as easily enter the password for the network itself.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Users And Groups Will Not Load?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Mounting Time Capsule Drives - Connection Refused

Jan 4, 2010

I've been looking for a way to mount my time capsule drives under Ubuntu, and found some guides, but none of them work for me. Apparently what you need to do is:

sudo mount.cifs // /media/timecapsule/ -o pass=pa55w0rd

My time capsule's ip is, it's name is "Time Capsule", the drive I'm trying to mount is called Movie HD

If I input the following command:

sudo mount.cifs // Capsule/Movie HD /media/timecapsule/ -o pass=mypassword

I get a connection refused error.I tried a couple different variations such as "/"Time Capsule"/Movie HD",etc,every combination, but I get a connection refused error (111) every time.(I have two drives on my time capsule, the internal, Movie HD, and an external usb one, Media HD, I want to actually mount them both)On my time capsule I did set it guest access to read only... Also, when I go to my places> network I do see the time capsule in the list, but I get an error message that it can't access the shares when I try to open it.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Extracting Specific File From Mac Time Machine Drive?

Mar 5, 2011

I am trying to extract just a few files/folders from a Time Machine backup, but can't seem to find them. The drive is automatically mounted in Ubuntu, and am able to access after enabling view hidden files, the HFS+ Private Data Directory. But that is a jumbled array of thousands of numbered folders, with each taking a fair amount of time to open on this aging Dell running 10.10.

I've tried running the standard Places - Search for Documents, with 'Show hidden and backup files' enabled, but that won't pull up any of the search times I'm going for (and seemingly won't find anything at all on the drive). So, is there any way to decipher the directory tree so as to be able to access this data from Ubuntu? Or perhaps a file embedded somewhere in there that lists out the original structure, so that I can use it as an index to see what number correlates to what originally named folder?
