hi by the way.
Im having an issue getting my WLAN card working under BT4 pre final...
I cannot seem to start wicd network manger by using :
sudo /etc/init.d/wicd start (in the teminal)
Or by selecting it from Internet - wicd network manager !!
Nothing happens. no GUI nothing!
I have A BCM4312 card (I know its not the best).
but I have had it working before under BT4 beta.
I can get network with my LAN cable (for support purposes)
Can someone help me out with this please??
I ran sudo apt-get update to see if there where any updates that might fix my issue and i got these error messages :
cannot upgrade to backtrack-web
E: sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
not sure what these mean even after googling but im pretty sure it is why i cannot get WLAN card enabled...
can any help me to rectify this ??
here is my output from sudo lshw -C network
and it states that my wlan card is unclaimed.
How can I fix this??-
do I rally need to instal a windows driver to get it working??
here is the output:
laptop:~$ sudo lshw -C network

Okay I managed to get wicd network manger started by the icon for it on my desktop and launching it from there.
