AMD Turion RM74
ATI Radeon HD 4570
ATHEROS AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter
ATHEROS AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller
So with fix-vesa (else "no screens" error will appear) backtrack runs normal exept wlan not found (device named lo and only contains localhost).
But whats Backtrack without internet
no but even if i do it still doesnt work
the madwifi driver aitn able to instlal on bt4? gives me error every time... (like smth not found even if i make an build everything up...)
compat-driver (ath5k /9k) gives me back less errors, but now theres even less reaktion of the Atheros card... imma go on tommorw if anybody has an idea why these both driver packages always tell me they cant find some files (what is unexplainable to me because they are original downoad from the original sites).. pls tell me :P

If you're missing files post what output you're getting. Otherwise noone can help get your card installed properly.
oke i reinstlaled bt, did your "/etc/init.d/networking start" command. A wlan device is detected (wlan0). It has the same Mac Adresse as if i use wlan with Windows. But still if i try to connect to internet it cant resolve host.So i did command "ifconfig wlan0 up" but it still not works. In my network interface window in the controll Center there is only one device caled low but i have no idea how to get wlan0 into that list.if i do "iwlist wlan0 scan" i get servereal networks including the one i want to connect to.Im sry if it sounds nooby but how do i connect to than network :S
and thx to hhmatt yout posts helped me lot, hope you can read this one easyer xD
You can start the wicd wireless network manager.
Then use the GUI to connect to whichever network you chose.Code:/etc/init.d/wicd start
Or you can check out this helpful thread by pureh@te.
"/etc/init.d/wicd start" onyl results in the message "Starting Network Connection manager: wicd" but no gui appears.
Also the start over "All Aplication/Internet" doesnt brign up a window. So i tried to run Wicd in foreground but it only says "Starting automatic reconnect prozess" and nothing else happens. wow got it working now
So update :P backtrack works good on ASUS X70AB!
If you get screen error (appeared to me when i start live cd), type:
and it will workCode:#fix-vesa and after that #startx
To start Wlan type
and after thatCode:#/etc/init.d/networking start
and everything works just fineCode:#/etc/init.d/wicd start and #wicd-client -n
thx to hhmatt for his helpfull posts
