    USB Knoppix wireless whoziwatzit


    Holaz everybody. I recently went to USB Knoppix 5.1.1 install | USB Pen Drive Linux and got me a working usb version of Knoppix. Sadly, I cant exactly tinker with it too much due to the fact that theres no wireless connection, so i went a ahead and got the needed information to post, in the hopes of getting some help so i can get it up and working and clean it up a bit.
    Here the info from the cmd prompt:

    Code:
    lspci -nn

    and now the linux distro and version

    Code:
    knoppix@Knoppix:~$ uname -r
    2.6.19
    knoppix@Knoppix:~$
    thats all ive got so far. if you need any extra information, just ask and tell me what to type and youll have it.

    Hello, and sorry for the delay in replying.

    I would have to say that most of the problems are because of your choice of Linux distribution. Knoppix seems to use a relatively old kernel:
    Code:
    knoppix@Knoppix:~$ uname -r
    2.6.19
    When you take in account that the latest stable kernel is 2.6.28.3, that is a major difference in versions. Since most device drivers are in the kernel, updating the kernel would be the first thing to do. I realize that this may not be possible, though.

    Here are the network cards in your system:
    Code:
    03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Unknown device [8086:4232]
    06:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller [10ec:8168] (rev 02)
    Take note of the fact that it says "Unknown device" for the Intel card. It also says it for a large number of devices in your system. This is not good. I believe that it is because your computer is newer than the distibution and kernel that you are using. It cannot identify hardware that did not even exist when it was released.

    There are no wireless modules loading on your system, since it cannot detect a wireless card.

    You could go through the process of manually installing and upating your system, but I would just install a newer Linux distro. There are plenty of LiveCD versions that can be installed on a USB drive. I would recommend Fedora 10 or Ubuntu 8.10.
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.
