Re: Linux Mint 13 MAYA installation with B43 firmware

Check this link http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43 for additional details on B43 drivers. You may need to use the STA driver or try some of the other alternatives. The Broadcom adapters can be challenging. Good Luck.

Re: Linux Mint 13 MAYA installation with B43 firmware

@ C-money I'm glad it worked for you! If you have the capability, please seed the torrent. I didn't get any notifications about grub with my installation. Are you dual booting? The only change I made to the image was to run: apt install firmware-b43-installer. Hope this helps.

Re: Installation - unable to include more disks

When you install you should come to a screen that detects any current OS installed and give you a prompt to install beside current OS, replace current OS, or DO SOMETHING ELSE. Select the Do something else option and you will see your various partions. Edit each partition, verify the format (eg. EXT...

Installing LMDE to flashdrive without burining DVD

I just downloaded the latest LMDE and would like to test drive it on a flash drive. I'm running Linux Mint 9 Isadora and I tried to use the Create Start Up disk (same as USB-Creator?), but when I try to select the .iso it does not recognize it. I tried using the pendrive software with Windblow$ but ...

Re: Laptop Freezing in Isadora or latest release of Ubuntu.

I have had the same problem when I updated to Isadora on an Acer Aspire One Netbook. It would freeze and only a cold boot would recover. There is a bug reported on this issue and a fix. You need to add acpi=off to /etc/default/grub file. Change line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_...
