Need some help with uninstalling please :-)

wl_apsta.o.lzma.tar.gz


Extract it using archive manager, then you'll be left with 'wl_apsta.o.lzma'. Open it with archive manager, and extract it. Now for the hard-ish part:

You'll need build essential, so:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install build-essential


then type:

Code: Select all

cd
wget http://bu3sch.de/b43/fwcutter/b43-fwcutter-011.tar.bz2
tar xjf b43-fwcutter-011.tar.bz2
cd b43-fwcutter-011
make
cd ..


now, wherever I put adam, put you're compy name there, eg, fred, joe, etc.

Code: Select all

export /home/adam/Desktop=”/lib/firmware”
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/sources/broadcom-wl-4.80.53.0.tar.bz2
tar xjf broadcom-wl-4.80.53.0.tar.bz2
cd broadcom-wl-4.80.53.0/kmod
sudo ../../b43-fwcutter-011/b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware wl_apsta.o


Worked for me, post your comments and let me know how it works for you. :P :o :o

It depends on what happened before and I can't see that from this info (depends on what happens when you "make")
Could you ask Acid_1 if he knows and ask him to write an answer here

Ok I think the only thing you need to do is to get rid of fwcutter and wl_apsta.o
If I understand this right fwcutter loads wl_apsta.o at boot
It should be in synaptic and possible to uninstall
After that wl_apsta.o will not be loaded and you can just delete it
