    b43 on live distro


    Hey All,

    I finally figured out what files and commands to run to not have to have wireless first (with the deb and then the drivers) but it requires a reboot....so when I use a live cd I can't use it because I reboot and the RAM is cleared which has the installed drivers and such.

    Is there a way to get it working without the "required reboot"?

    You should be able to get it to work by removing and reloading the b43 module. This is assuming that the firmware files are installed first.

    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r b43
    Code:
    sudo modprobe b43
    If you are not using Ubuntu, you may need to use the su command, instead of sudo, to gain root privileges.
