    Default B4f, Live USB & input/output error

    Hello
    I've got a problem with BT4 Final. I'm working on HP Mini 210-1010SW Netbook and I've got here a Broadcom 802.11b/g card. Unfortunately, I've got a BCM4312 [PCI 14e4:4315] version of my card. So, I found a solution how to solve my problem with drivers, and when I type into console:
    Code:
    make b43-stuff
    cd b43-stuff
    tar xjf b43-fwcutter-013.tar.bz2
    cd b43-fwcutter-013
    make
    I get a error:
    Code:
    Bash /usr/bin/make: input/output error
    Because of this error I can't go further . Of course I'm logged in as root.

    I downloaded BackTrack 4 Final iso and I made a Live USB version, using unetbootin .

    I think you will need to upgrade to R1. Just apt-get update and upgrade and dist-upgrade should get you going.

    Archangel-Amael, tkanks for answer me.

    I think It'll be difficult, 'cause I don't have internet access when I'm using BackTrack.

    I think about other possibility - maybe I made a mistake when I was creating live USB version ?
    Should I install B4F at hard drive or remain at Live USB version ? i don't want to do that, but maybe it'll solve my problem ?

    No you are going to need the new drivers and the kernel so you will either need to upgrade by using apt ( as I posted above) or you will need to download the new BT4 R1.
