Broadcom 4318 refuses to work in ubuntu feisty
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 1, 2007
I just upgraded to ubuntu feisty, and my wireless went bye bye.
Here is what I did.
After upgrading and downloading all the updates, I downloaded the new ndiswrapper from sourceforge.net
I followed the install instruction to install ndiswrapper with make uninstall, make and then make install file
ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5.inf
ndiswrapper -l showed the driver present and working with hardware.
I also created a file in /etc/network/if-pre-up.d with the following content
ifconfig eth1 up # eth1 or eth2
iwconfig eth1 essid <wireless access point name>
I also edited /etc/network/interfaces and here is the content
iface eth1 inet dhcp
iface eth0 inet dhcp
After installing wlassistant, every
I can see the networks scanned from my neighborhood (and mine too)but still can't connect

Cannot install webcam Creative Live! Cam Video IM Pro on Ubuntu Feisty
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 2, 2007
I tried to install a webcam, Creative Live! Cam Video IM Pro, but my Ubuntu Feisty won't even recognize it as an external device attached to the computer, let alone install any driver... I previously had a similar problem with another webcam on Ubuntu Edgy. Here are the steps I was advised to follow at that time:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` linux-restricted-modules-`uname -r` build-essential
tar xvfz spca5xx-20060501.tar.gz
sudo modprobe -r spca5xx
sudo rm -rf /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/usb/media/spca5xx*
sudo make install
sudo modprobe spca5xx
Now, the first command gave at the end: "0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded".
The second command gave: `spca5xx-20060501.tar.gz.1' saved
The third gave one error (among all other OK responses) - tar: spca5xx-20060501/drivers: implausibly old time stamp 1970-01-01 01:00
Ubuntu Feisty Sound was working, but mysteriously stops working after reboot.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 1, 2007
Hi there...I'm running Ubuntu Feisty. I installed a fresh copy of Feisty a few months ago. When I installed, the sound worked great. "All of a sudden" the sound stopped working. The GNOME volume control shows a little "crossout" sign (like what's in front of a butt for a no smoking sign...you know) and you can't access the volume control. So I used this guide to try and diagnose the problem:
Here's the output:
Broadcom BCM4312 firmware in Ubuntu 10.10 Beta
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 26, 2010
I recently switched from 10.04.1 Ubuntu that I had for only about a week, to Ubuntu 10.10 Beta. I switched because I heard that 10.10 comes with firmware right out of the box for BCM4312. I am new with Linux, and Ubuntu, but I do know what some of the commands do and etc. I got 10.10 installed, but the wireless options say "Not connected|Firmware Missing" What do I need to activate the firmware, or install it?
Uninstalling JRE 1.6 on Ubuntu Feisty
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 31, 2007
I installed JRE 1.6 by executing a .bin file (jre-6u2-linux-i586.bin) using the 'sh' command in the terminal. I am no longer using the program that required JRE and wish to uninstall it but can't find any instructions on Sun's website for JRE 1.6 uninstallation. I'm new to Linux (< 1 month) so I don't have much experience on undoing things done with the terminal. After installing JRE 1.6 there is now a folder called 'jre1.6.0_02' on my desktop. I know that I probably need to delete this folder as a part of the uninstallation process, but I am sure that there is more to it than just that. Can anyone help me out?
Broken LVM Ubuntu Feisty. Recovery Possible?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 3, 2008
I previously posted my question
here but gave up too easily.. I've done some reading and want to tackle this again, there is 10 years of data there that I have to get back :/ All help gratefully received!
Basically, I had 2 mirror LVMs, one called 'ivor' and one called 'engine' (two 3 x 500gb SATA arrays) which backed up to each-other overnight. I had 2 disks fail simultaneously (both drive 3 of each array). After much poking about and futile attempts to get at the data in the meantime I find the following;
Rhythmbox Magnatune error on Ubuntu Feisty
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 27, 2007
I'm using Rhythmbox 0.10.0 on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn. So far it's been great. I would like to use it to access Magnatunes, but it doesn't do anything when I click that feature in the menu.
I launched Rhythmbox from a command line to see what happens when I try Magnatunes, and I get this output...
My review for Ubuntu Feisty
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 2, 2007
First, a little back story. I started out a few years ago in Linux with RH 9.0, then went to FC3, FC4, then on to Slackware 10.0, of which I have been an avid fan and I am currently on 12.0. My wife is in Kuwait, and wants a laptop with Linux on it. Slackware is rather intense for someone who doesn't understand nor wants to understand the fundamentals of an OS, so I chose to go for Ubuntu for her machine because it is much more novice friendly.
So, to get myself familiar with how Ubuntu works I installed it on my home machine, and I must say I am fairly impressed. I've never been a huge fan of Gnome but it does what I need and that's enough for me. The Synaptic package manager is certainly much easier than Slackware's method of handling software. The only difficulties I have run into came from trying to get Grub to recognize I had multiple HDD's (which I was finally able to fix) and getting the Nvidia driver to install (which Envy solved rather handly).
To be honest, the only thi
glibc on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 1, 2009
Its a bit long please bare with me.
I am using an older version of Ubuntu, Feisty Fawn, i know its old i will be upgrading it soon but i have a few questions anyway.
I want to install glibc.
Initially i was having problems with "/configure" i was getting the message "configure: error: you must configure in a separate build directory" even though my path was "/usr/src/gnu/glibc-build$", a user in a different forum suggested using the command
My first question is i don't understand this, why do i need to type "/usr/src/glibc-*.*" before configure when i already am in that folder
This worked in getting rid of that error, but now i am getting
"checking how to run the C preprocessor... /lib/cpp
configure: error: C preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check"
Below is a portion of the config.log
