Help - IP 2200 Doesn't work on Dell 610
I'm new to Linux Fedora Core 5.
I have a dell laptop D610.
- My Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200 wireless isn't working.
I need help.
Is there somewhere or someone who could point me to detailed
steps on how to install and get the wireless thing to work ?
Because my wireless is down, I have no access to internet to download
files from the Linux desktop.
- Another issue - Yum
I don't have internet access since my wireless is down.
I have in /etc/yum.repos.d, files are
#PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN seperate files named file.repo
What lines exactly should I add to this file ?
It's unclear to me. One of the web site points to adding lines
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - ATrpms
name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - freshrpms
but I'm not sure they are the right ones since I downloaded
ipw2002 and not ATMrpms or freshrpms.
Do I make sense here ?
I added those lines mentioned above, reboot and I still get errors
[root@localhost ~] yum -y update
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
http://dl.atrpms.net/fc5-i386/atrpms...ta/repomd.xml: [Error 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution')>
Trying other mirror.
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: atrpms
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from atrpms: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: core
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: core
Could someone help ?
When I click on Fedora GUI
Applications->Add/Remove Software menu, a Package Manager window shows
up with Error saying Unable to retrieve software information. Once
I click ok, the Package Manager Window disappears.
Is this a related problem to the above issue of my laptop wireless network isn't configured yet ?
What do I do now ?
What actual rpms I need to download to copy in CD ?
but I don't know which one to use or if I still miss anymore files.
Please offer detailed instructions on how to use rpms to install.
This is a newbie talking.
Appreciate your patience, gurus.
Please respond with your help.
