its same model like ubuntu 10.10 (its said...) That explains a lot on your previous post readout I guess on apt-cache policy not showing the intel firmware package in repos ...

    its same model like ubuntu 10.10 (its said...)
    That explains a lot on your previous post readout I guess on apt-cache policy not showing the intel firmware package in repos I guess. Ubuntu 10.10 is no longer supported. Reached end of life on April 10, 2012.o

    So. Instead of trying to install tar.gz intel firmware. Which could have been avoided if Jay would have known Distro version and release.

    Go to this page
    linux-firmware RPM DEB Free Download for Linux - pkgs.org

    left click on the Ubuntu 10.04LTS orange bar on bottom.
    download the

    Ubuntu Main:

    linux-firmware_1.34_all.deb - Firmware for Linux kernel drivers

    if you have gdebi. Use that to install the firmware and reboot. Then do the apt-cache policy again to make sure it is installed.
    Then the ifconfig -a to see if wireless shows up. Then if everything is hunky dory. Connect up with whatever network manager Black Ubuntu uses. Crossing my fingers that previous attempts of installing firmware won't cause a snag in this.

    If you don't have gdebi is Black Ubuntu. You can go into the directory you downloaded the .deb into. Open your terminal there.
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i (then type in package name. You can use the first few letters and then hit the tab key to complete)
    So. It is sudo. Hit space key. dpkg. Hit space key. -i. Hit space key. Then Package name (.deb)

    This is why I like running AntiX and Debian Testing repos. There is no end of life running linux this way like in Ubuntu or Fedora. I run as a rolling release like Arch and Gentoo and Debian Testing and Unstable users. Some of my AntiX installs go back to version 8.5 but are still current running with testing repos enabled. In case you ever feel like experimenting with something else. LMDE might be right up your alley.

    This is a spinoff of Ubuntu 10.10 so kinda hard to tell. Spinoff distros can be problematic at the best of times. Unless they are well established like xubuntu or what ever. I never heard of Black Ubuntu until this thread. What is funny as heck to me is that it seems to be related/similar to Back Track Linux and I have heard nothing but problems from new Linux users trying to connect to the internet in BackTrack but have no need or knowledge running a penetration/hacking distro in the first place.

    http://www.unix.com/security/178685-...ackubuntu.html

    If you insist on running a penetration/hacking type of distro. Install a current version instead of trying to fix a unsupported version would be my suggestion. I have no need or inclination or knowledge running these kind of distros. Sorry.

    Sorry for the late reply here...
    Blackbuntu, to my knowledge, is often quite finicky when it comes to wireless.
    You might actually want to consider installing a standard *buntu and then add the extra packages that you were wanting from BB.

    Wireless should, then, work out-of-the-box.
