Plug in an ethernet cable tongue.gif

Bleh something got messed up with the CD so I have erase it & download it again x.x I hope it works this time though and I can get the internet working on the Live CD. I'll let you guys know what happens, will probably take 30 minutes or so tongue.gif.

And by a while, he means that you will forget that you ordered it before it gets to you smile.gif. Though it is free so I can't complain tongue.gif. I am not very patient so I prefer to just download it and burn it myself tongue.gif. Plus the mailed ones only ship with Dapper on them...We're on edgy right now and almost on fiesty tongue.gif.

Don't worry dude, I tried 3 or 4 different codec packs before I made that post tongue.gif. The last one finally worked but it was annoying to say the least dry.gif.

I think you are making it too hard on yourself blink.gif. http://www.ubuntu.com - download the desktop version for your computer type (most likely i386 but might be 64 bit too). Burn it onto a cd. Boot from the cd, and in the installer choose for your hard disk to be resized and select the size. Then keep clicking next until its done installing.

There is your tutorial tongue.gif. Pretty easy no? smile.gif

Yeah, I wish it was that easy.. but I actually did that and the resizing part didn't work... so yeah... not sure what to do.

Mmk several problems.

When I first enter the Live CD Ubuntu and try and configure my wireless connection, it remains disconnected and I have no signal strength:
http://img252.images...=problemlt0.png

I've tried following several tutorials downloading & installing ndiswrapper, but it just removes the Wireless Connection thing when I go to System>Administration>Networking x.x

Then I tried to follow this tutorial:
https://help.ubuntu..../...ocs/Device)

And everything went fine up until the point where I got to:
[email protected]:~/ndiswrapper-1.28$ sudo make install

And then it said command not available or something.

sudo make install was not available? Did you run the configure script or autogen.sh depending on how they built ndiswrapper? That's really weird.

Also, try installing network manager - it might already be on the CD. You can have synaptic read your cd for programs rather than the internet. Network manager is really good for internet stuff and allowing you to choose how your computer connects to the internt biggrin.gif. Network manager + ndiswrapper = works biggrin.gif.

I don't think I ran a configure script or autogen.sh.. are either of those in the steps before that part in the tutorial? tongue.gif

And for Network Manager, I would just check it under Synaptic, click Apply, and then what would I do?

Yes, you probably have to run one of those two in order for the make install to be there tongue.gif. Since it creates a makefile which without you cant install the program tongue.gif. And I think that's it for network manager...you might have to log out and log back in tongue.gif.

Mmk I'll try this again later x.x

Will that tutorial make my internet work? Or should I just follow the one you posted and see what happens?
Also, is ndiswrapper supposed to make the Wireless Connection disappear in the Networking Connections?

The problem with that I have with the tutorial you posted is that after step 6, it says 'Use the internet (you will have to open the System menu at the top of the screen, go to Administration, and then click Networking. Configure the interface eth1 or wlan0, and connect to your wifi network)', and I can't do that because my Wireless Connection disappears and it just shows Wired Connection and Modem.

Don't worry about it then. Once you get network manager installed, it wont matter anyway tongue.gif.

If in the event the cd doesn't have network manager, I would recommend getting the install files before you boot up onto your shuffle or whatever you use tongue.gif.

Mmhm it refuses to work. I installed the NetworkManager off Ubuntu with the Synaptic Packaging System or whatever and it didn't work.. I logged off/back in and then there was an extra pair of little computers (the internet connection) at the top and I clicked it and it said No Network Connection. o.o

Linux is awesome!
I've installed ubuntu, and the alpha for 7.04 detects your file extensions and gives you the option to download the proper codecs if they aren't there.
I've also installed gentoo, and it rocks, but I was having trouble with my sound card (kernel configuration error) and codecs, so I like ubuntu a little bit more. (gentoo is waaaaayy faster though, especially with beryl)

My graphics card and computer can't handle beryl lol...They are too old tongue.gif. But I agree that linux definately is awesome. Ever since I installed it I have become so much more productive tongue.gif. Mostly because the system doesn't slow down or crash from time to time dry.gif.

Yeah, beryl isn't all great. After a few days, it can get old. I wouldn't worry about it.
