I downloaded the 32 bit iso, checked MD5sum, and put it onto a USB pen drive using unetbootin as I usually do. It booted up fine on my Lenovo Thinkcenter desktop. However, it did not detect my wireless NIC, bcm43. I played around with the live system and all was working fine. Then I manualy installed the wireless driver and connected to the internet via my home network.
All of a sudden my second nic disappeared. Only thing I did was put the motherboard in a new case. I tried to keep the cards in order in the PCI slots, but may not have. Only thing I can think of is INT went missing on bootup PCI bus scan and reconfig.
The first nic is marvel and is on the motherboard and still working, second nic is intel etherexpress (e100).
I tried to solve everything on my own and google, etc. But now this moment can't be put off any further, and I must place this burden on your time.The original problem: I have a Dell latitude E6430 laptop connected via a docking station to an external monitor, also Dell. I want to use both screens with a desktop or two on each.
I just installed xubuntu (8.04) onto an old Sony vaio laptop and am a complete Linux newbie. After playing around, it seems to be running well, except it is not detecting my wired Ethernet connection correctly.
I am trying to install ubuntu once again because nvidia crashed. My laptop screen is broken so I have to plug in another screen and hope that it will notice it at the very start of the installation. But I haven't even got that far yet because my laptop isn't recognising my cd.
