uninstalling wireless driver

Postby AbeFreeman on Wed Mar 06, 2013 4:57 pm

I have a brand new installation of Mint Debian on a HP pavillion dv9000. When I went to the device driver manager to install the wireless driver for my broadcom wireless card, it tells me "unknown driver found please remove before installing drivers with DDM" and it shows a recommended broadcom driver, but won't let me choose it. The installed driver is listed as "b", and there is no obvious way to remove it. What do I do????

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

this is what worked for me:
go to Synaptic Package Manager
select Kernel and modules (contrib) in categories on the left
install firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
