Recompiling a Windows graphics driver?
Hello, I still haven't found out a way to run BT3 (or any other linux distro) on my brand new Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907.
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU T3200 @ 2.0GHz (x2)
RAM: 4GB DDR2 600 MHz
Wireless card: Atheros AR9281 Wireless Network adapter
Graphics card: Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family
Primary OS: Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit (yuck)
I know now basically what the issue is, and there is no solution, at least from the manufacturers, in the near future. My vBIOS doesn't like linux. And there is no vBIOS update available, and probably won't be in the near future. So, being a linux noob, I have no idea if this will actually work, or change anything.
First: Would it be possible to write a vBIOS software that would be compatable with windows, and Linux? And, if such a program was written, would it damage my computer should it have errors?
Second: Would it be possible to recompile the current drivers written for windows, so that linux would support my card?
Any input is appreciated.
Hey everyone, I'm back for a little while.
Don't know how long; I FINALLY got bt3 working on my laptop graphics card wise. Solution - VMware. Works like a dream. Still having trouble using the wireless card, but working on that. I'll be going around these forums and others looking for information on the card (Atheros ar9281). So far it seems I'm not the only one. I'm thinking about making a new VM for BT4, but someone here will probably get that available for download.
