Issues With SD Card (and a LED light)

I'm having a couple problems with Mint 7 on an AA1. The problem seem to be that I bought an AA1 in the first place. Heh. Wireless: I've had kind of off and on issues with wireless. I tried to install the madwifi drivers and I've used the already present Atheros drivers. It doesn't seem there's much ...

Re: Card reader

I was not aware that mentioning my similar problem would qualify as "hijacking". Is it impossible that we might need similar solutions? I find it incredibly redundant, however I appreciate that you've told me of the policy. I've already attempted what you posted in the link. Seeing as further postin...

Driver doesn't Dedect Hardware?

I have an Aspireone and an Atheros chipset. I went through the Windows Wireless Driver and fished out the drives in usr/lib... I'm running Mint 7 and in Hardware Drivers there's an Alternative Madwifi for Atheros. When I turn on my computer the wireless works and it appears to be working with the wi...

Re: Card reader

I'm also trying to get a card to work. I have an SD card, for an Acer Aspireone. It goes directly into the computer, so I'm not sure if it's the same issue, but I'm looking for anything that could help at the moment. tail -f /var/log/messages Jul 13 17:51:16 L kernel: [ 20.525428] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP...

Re: SanDisk SD Card - Unable to mount location

I have a SanDisk SD Card I also can't get to mount. I got a similar output from the terminal when I put in that command.
I tried to mount dev/sda5, but it told me only root could mount. Hmm...

I didn't have problems with it in 6, so I'm also wondering why that was changed.

Re: atheros wifi card wont work in mint 7 gnome

I don't have Mint 7 yet, but I've had the same problem with Mint 6 with gnome (on my Aspireone with the atheros chips). Assuming you have the drivers you need or Mint 7 comes with them, my guess is it would be the authentication type. I've had trouble with my network connecting, because of WEP secur...

Re: LINUX MINT 7 DOES NOT DETECT HOME NETWORK

Hey, I'm a fairly new Linux user myself. I currently have Mint 6 and had similar problems with networking. From what I understand there are chip sets that don't innately work with Linux. They're made to work with Microsoft (Unlike Microsoft and Mac, the hardware in most computers isn't specifically ...

Re: Network password not working

I'm having the same problem and don't have a lot of choice, because I'm trying to connect to campus and dorm internet. The internet security is WEP with a passphrase. Someone figured out to connect the other day, but it won't pick up the connection automatically (like it's been set to) and it won't ...

Re: Setting Up Broadcom

I can try to make this a little clearer. I have a Broadcom driver and card. It's already there, I can find the hardware driver, it's just not active. When I tell it to activate it can't. It gets my password from me and then tries to download and install the drivers automatically... it's not online.....

Setting Up Broadcom

I'm trying to get internet, but my old computer has a Broadcom B4legacy wireless driver. It can't activate it because I don't have internet... (until it's activated). From what I've read it seems somewhat an issue to set up Broadcom, but I also read there was a zip file, offline, installation. I thi...

Re: Can I Partition This?

I have plenty of space, 40GBs (18.81GBs are used). I have Gparted, found it, got it to work fine, so it's applying now. Thanks for the help! Hopefully everything will work with the installation after this. How risky would it be to partition the system I'm working on now? It's a Toshiba Satellite A20...

Re: Can I Partition This?

Hey,

If you mean the one that comes up during the installation, yes, but it didn't show any disks or partitions at all. I can try it again.

+I just realized it's not giving me the "Prepare Disk Space" page at all. Should I try getting Mint onto another disk?

Can I Partition This?

I'm not sure if this is the right place to be asking this, but I was going along with the Linux Mint User guide and it was going along fine, now I've kind of hit an issue with partitioning. I'm trying to make the transition from Windows to Linux, so this is a lot of new stuff (and if you'd like to s...
