How to get Mint on a HP Probook 4330s

Postby trikke » Wed Dec 12, 2012 8:55 am

Here is a collection of things i did on my hp ProBook 4330s to get things working properly.
Hopefully u can use the same fixes on the other ProBooks aswel.

- Go to and download the RT3062PCI/mPCI/CB/PCIe(RT3060/RT3062/RT3562/RT3592) drivers.

Extract the package and cd to the directory.

U need to make a slight modification to the configuration for the driver:

vim os/linux/

And set:

# Support Wpa_Supplicant

# Support Native WpaSupplicant for Network Manager

By default they are both set to ‘n’. Save and close the file.

From the top level directory, compile and install the driver:

sudo su
make && make install

- After compilation, and while still root, modprobe the driver:

modprobe rt3562sta

You should get no output signalling success.

- Now an important step. We need to blacklist a conflicting driver that will be loaded preferentially for this network card.

sudo vim /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

enter the following line at the bottom of the file:

blacklist rt2800pci

Save and close. ( :wq! )

- reboot

- Now wireless was working but with alot of messages in my dmesg so i had to deactivate logging.

sudo iwpriv ra0 set Debug=0

still i was getting error messages in my log file about evbug
so if u get them to, go back to the blacklist.conf and add this line at the bottom.

blacklist evbug

hope this helped :)
