I've tried a bunch of Linux distributions over the years, and this one is hands down my favorite. Thank you so much for all the work you've done, and good luck with your other projects and your day job.

I think I'm going to try a clean Waldorf install.  I'm having some partition issues that I haven't tried to troubleshoot yet, so it might not happen until next week.

Looking at the README for the Broadcom 5.100.82.1XX wireless driver, it seems to support Dell cards through 1530.  Mine is 1540.  Am I stuck waiting for an update to the driver?

#4 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Wireless card not recognized » 2012-07-19 00:38:25

Kernel is updated.  I installed all the Broadcom drivers I could find.

Sorry, I'm a liar.  I can't wait.  I booted back into Windows 7 so I have working wireless and it just makes me sad. 

So, I ran a live session of Waldorf.  I went into the package manager and searched for "broadcom" and installed every package that seemed relevant, then restarted the wireless manager.  The first time I tried it didn't do anything.  The second time the wireless manager never came back up.

That is probably not sufficient.
I suspect you will have to migrate to wheezy (dist-upgrade), or install #! Waldorf.

I tried the live cd for Waldorf and it still didn't recognize the card.  I don't think I want to upgrade to an unstable system unless I know it will fix my problem.

Anyway, thanks very much for the help.  I'll try again when Waldorf is officially released.

You will have to upgrade to wheezy for your wireless card - or install #! Waldorf, which is based on Wheezy.. See the referred to wiki page and search for 4359.

I installed wheezy/broadcom-sta-source, rebooted, and tried the instructions for Module Assistant again, and still the same error.  It directs me to some buildlog that doesn't exist.

#8 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Wireless card not recognized » 2012-07-13 10:43:13

I ugraded the kernel and rebooted, that didn't help,  So I followed the instructions on the Debian wiki, and get this error from module-assistant:

Bad luck, the kernel headers for the target kernel version could not be found and you did :)not specify other valid kernel headers to use.

If the running kernel has been shipped with the Debian distribution, please install the package kernel-headers-3.2.0-0.bpo.2-amd64. If your kernel source tree (or headers) is located in some non-usual location, please set the KERNELDIRS environment variable to the path of thisdirectory, or (alternatively) specify the source directory we build for with the --kernel-dir option in module-assistant calls.

And now I have to get ready for work, so I'll continue from there later.  Thanks for the help so far.

I have a brand new Dell Latitude E6430 with a Dell Wireless 1540 802.11a/n Dual Band, High Speed Wi-Fi Half Mini-card.  I don't have the option to connect to a wireless network.  It does not appear if the OS recognizes that a wireless card is present.  There appears to be a switch on the side for turning wireless on and off, but switching it back and forth does not seem to do anything.

How do I begin debugging this?

#11 Re: Introductions » Defecting from Ubuntu » 2011-02-25 12:27:24

It's been going well.  I have two issues that I haven't tried to resolve yet that may or may not be #!-related. 

First, the laptop (a Thinkpad T61, about four years old) runs hotter than it used to.  It used to get hot when I was doing something processor-intensive (converting a batch of RAW files to JPEG, for example), but now it seems hotter all the time.

And second, the network connection was crawling last night.  I didn't check another computer, so it could have just been the crappy router or Comcast's crappy service, but I had this same issue with Ubuntu for a while where after the computer woke up from suspend, the network connection was really slow.

But, like I said, I haven't tried to debug either of these issues yet.

#12 Re: Introductions » Defecting from Ubuntu » 2011-02-24 03:41:39

Thanks, all.  One of the fantastic things about Linux is how consistently friendly the users of each distribution are.  I defy you to find a group of Windows or Mac users who are so helpful.

While I will always have a special place in my heart for Ubuntu as my introduction to Linux, and as the distribution that saved me from a life of Windows, Ubuntu 10.10 is moving in directions that I don't want to go.  The new default theme that looks like a cheap OSX knockoff, the nagging update manager, having F-Spot insist on managing my photos . . . And then I tried CrunchBang running from USB using unetbootin, and it was FASTER than Ubuntu installed on my hard drive.

So I switched last night.  So far, I'm very happy.  To be fair, I've only been running CrunchBang for about 11 hours, and I was asleep at least 6 of those.  But still, very happy.
