Ok, little background. I have an old HP computer, I installed Xubuntu on, long story short was too much for the little resources I have. But will using it picked up my wireless card on boot up. It is a Belkin F5D7000f rev20.

Ok, so then I found Mint running FluxBox. Works great, fairly smooth, little slow, but I expected that. One issue it doesn't like my wireless card at all. Why? Only thing I can guess is that Mint uses 8.4ubuntu and the xubuntu i used was 8.10. Is there a way to find out exactly how the 8.10 uses this card?

One more interesting thing is I had a syslog file when i was tried to troubleshoot the xubunto and it list the driver as 8010, but everything i find on this card everyone attempts to use 8510.

i tried the linuxmint wiki for wifi and can't get it to work, found another couple post on this site, and still no luck.

any insight would be helpful.thanks in advance.

Have you tried Ndiswrapper? http://www.linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php/MintWifi

Have you tried Ndiswrapper? http://www.linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php/MintWifi

yes i did. it didn't work though, the light on the card flashes orange but no networks was ever found, i don't know if i did it right or not? im really confused. just don't know where to even start. this is all very new to me.

On both distros, check the output from:

lshw -class network

This will demonstrate what driver is being used.

You might like CruchBang linux if its resources that your trying to save.

Is that the same on Xubuntu 8.10? If so, I can't see how it is working with no driver installed.

Why not just keep Xubuntu installed and then just use Fluxbox instead of Xfce?

here is a little up date for what i got going on so far. i got the ndiswrapper and driver installed but keep restarting an no connection is actually made. the following is a dmesg but dont know what it all means. any help is apreciated.


ok got some issues no connection yet and i have to sleep but here is dmesg for you to look at. why is it resetting so much?

earle@linuxdesktop ~ $



OK, i finally found the right one its version 7 using the win98 version. there is still a few issues though. im rebooting now it was acting wierd. still dont have actual connection but i got the driver installed.

when i then type sudo ndiswrapper -m it says "modprobe config already contains alias directive"

so dont know what that means. i just know that wcid doest pick anything up but network manager did. oh its done rebooting. i will check some things.

any help is apreciated.

Unfortunately, I have no idea what you are doing now either.

I would again suggest you give us the information regarding Xubuntu (where it worked automatically).

This would allow any of the following:
1. aysui's suggestion of Fluxbox + 8.10
2. yaknowat's suggestion of Crunchbang (8.10 + Openbox)
3. Asking on the Mint forum how to get the same driver to work in Mint Fluxbox

Ok, you are probably right. well i guess im just in for the thrill of the hunt?

Does anyone have any opinions on Fluxbox and Openbox? Soes anyone have any experience with either one? Personal preferances? Likes or dislikes on either?

I suggest asking this question on the Other OS Talk section of this forum. That seems to be where the enthusiasts of alternative desktops hang out.

My opinion: Linux Mint Fluxbox CE is the most user friendly Fluxbox distro. Mainly because it auto-updates the menus when you install new stuff. But the 8.10 version is not out yet. Crunchbang 8.10 is my favorite Openbox distro. If Xubuntu already works for you (sluggishly), I suggest keeping it and reducing the demand on your machine by disabling the services you don't use and disabling some of the autostart programs that can be managed at your convenience. like system updates.

My favorite Fluxbox distro is Fluxbuntu. The project was defunct for a while, but now they seem to be gearing back up for an Intrepid release (fluxbuntu.org).

However, I am now really, really enjoying Openbox. My two favorite Openbox distros are Crunchbang and SliTaz. Definitely worth checking out!

I think the *box windows managers are far superior to Gnome, KDE, etc. for highly productive every day use. That's just my opinion. :)

I only briefly dabbled with both.

However, if you want something "user-friendly" and light, I would suggest LXDE. It is built on a backbone of Openbox with panels, pcmanfm (file manager like thunar) and a menu package.

http://wiki.lxde.org/en/Ubuntu#Minimal_Ubuntu_.2B_LXDE_Installation

There is a new U-lite, which is 8.10+LXDE, but it is still alpha (and I haven't tried it).
