thanks for the help, i would use it but when i plug in the card, the computer locks up (in bt3) nothing works not even the power button i have to take the battery out just to get back on track- possibly a bad burn or incomplete iso? where in the files can i check to see if everything is there/ok before inserting the card?
Very good friend of the forum
This sounds like a driver / kernel issue try updating the drivers, and if you still getting problems post back.
Right now I'm trying to configure my kernel cause when I try to run
make Makefile for the card driver, i get this:
bt orinoco-0.15 # cd Makefile
-bash: cd: Makefile: Not a directory
bt orinoco-0.15 # make Makefile
Makefile:15: *** Kernel in /usr/src/linux-184.108.40.206 is not configured. Stop.
Trying to follow a few how-to's and threads but nothing definitive, Doc GrEen, said look at the driver so as I try to update it this comes up and now its time to learn how to configure the general officer
Got to this point and now confused cause make xconfig got me this:
bt ~ # uname -r
bt ~ # zcat /proc/config.gz > 220.127.116.11-smp.config
bt ~ # make xconfig
make: *** No rule to make target `xconfig'. Stop.
bt ~ #
Also, if you've never built a kernel and want to use the kernel you're running
now as a starting point, that is a good place to start. Issue:
zcat /proc/config.gz > 18.104.22.168-smp.config
which will create the file 22.214.171.124-smp.config from your running kernel. You
can change the name - I used the one with Slack-12.1 as an example. Either cat
it to ./linux-126.96.36.199/ as .config to begin with, or cp it there. Then run
"make xconfig" and change options to suit your computer.
This is where I got the idea from BTW
You have said that your card worked with BT2 and now it doesn't work in BT3
because of a error in the kernal... I am guessing but is sounds like the error is
really in your upgrading of the BT3... Like I am saying, I am totally guessing.
But, I had to tell you that as I am going to ask you some questions:
Which will help me,,,, Help you...
So this is what we know:
BT2 your card worked,,,,
YOU did something and then your card didn't work.
I am guessing that you installed BT3 on your hard drive... or usb flash drive.
Question One: Please give me the link to the install that you did?
As I would bet that the answer that you are looking for is is in the last place that
you would look,,, and that is because the answer might be in the place where you
started this path and not at the point where you find yourself crashing.
Do you have a Windows (R) or VMware install?
Lets start here.
Reason, that I have never heard of anyone that had to reconfigure a kernel to
install a card... it seems that your install might not have been complete.
I only have 14 posts so I don't know enough to help you, but maybe
I can get you to look back and discover where the issues are?
I would just backup a copy your current BT3 partition and then I would
try to reinstall BT3 with a fresh slate. Only because I don't know anything.
Cool, first off,
Dual booting XP and BT3 installed from live cd, full install
With the live cd, things got ugly real quick, with the hd install, it starts to boot, then when the long string of messages at the beginning are happening, with the gold card in, something is added to the message, and it just stalls. Give me about 10 minutes to reboot with g- card in and write down the message difference.
Followed the install guide from Off-sec and tutorial from Killnine
Ok here is what it says
Code: 03 00 70 09 25 ff ff 00 00 66 89 02 c3 89 d0 25 00 00 ff ff 3d 00 00 etc. etc.. for about 60 more characters,
then we have:
udev-event:run_program: '/sbin/modprobe' abnormal exit'
I have to hit enter cause my lilo.conf file is read-write (changing that shortly)
and while its trying to load the touchpad it just stops and I can hit the spacebar or whatever and nothing until I press the power button and reboot with my dlink card installed.
Vas ist los?
DId you visit the howto page created by the people on this forum?
I feel your pain... we have all have been there...
The first tutorial I found was the one from a member named Killnine
I printed out the pdf from Off-sec but in the middle of following it my partition magic performed some voodoo and made my windows go away-- luckily I had easus hard disk copy-2.0 and just recopied my windows partition back from a 500 gig hd and started over-- took me 3 days but now I can do it with my eyes half shut.
Doc GrEen said to check my drivers and sent me to a link that is in this thread and there I found a new one, tried to get it going and here I am trying to configure my kernel-- so... tired... must.. configure... kernel.......
Ok, Get some sleep, go to windows, make DVD's QTparted, BT3, Delete the corrupted BT3 partition(s) on your hard drive, Print your instructions, reboot with the BT3 check that the DVD isn't corrupt, Get some sleep,,, wake up with a BIG Coffee and start your install.
Don't guess, if you guess 99 percent of the time you will be wrong.
YES, YES, YES, I pasted the 15 posts, this site rocks
