Previously, in Mint 13 KDE, the driver [alx] for the Altheros AR8161 Ethernet/Bluetooth was not included with the distribution. I was able to find it on an Ubuntu forum and installed it myself. I also had to re-install it after every kernal update. Today, I installed Mint 14 KDE. When I went into console to install it, this is what resulted:
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic linux-headers-`uname -r`

Need to get 14.0 MB/29.1 MB of archives.
After this operation, 117 MB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? Y
Everytime I enter "Y", the response is, "Abort." I have tried to just type the letter "Y", and I have also hit "Enter" after doing so. The "Abort." only appears after I hit the "Enter" key.
Thanks for any help!
