    Default eeepc 2g

    Hi All,

    Installed BT4 beta on an external sdhc card. Boots fine and airmon-ng works for injection. Currently have no idea how to connect to my wireless network though.
    Startx works but not fvwm.

    One note of caution - Following the install.pdf instructions trashed my internal sd mbr. I'm sure this was due to my inexperience, and after restoring the mbr from a backup all is well.

    BT4 beta seems to run very sluggishly compared to BT3 final, at least on my 2g.


    Thanks to the dev team and anyone else involved.


    Kindest regards

    James

    Still it's only beta, and i'm only 3 weeks into nix

    Open a shell then type
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/NetworkManager start
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Has anyone tried;

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-intrepid-generic
    sudo modprobe ath5k

    Then;

    sudo -s
    echo blacklist ath_pci >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

    This may get the wireless working, I know it got my wireless working on my 701 Eee on the latest Ubuntu and im wondering is it the same on BT4. I can't test it right now, unfortunately i'm still in work and don't have access to my Eee. But if anyone wants to have a go let me know how you got on.

    Oh and btw obviously you need to be connected by ethernet to do this.
