Just installed xubuntu karmic beta on http://support.vaio.sony.eu/computin...m=PCG-SRX51P_B
On startup, I get the following message:
eth1: Cannot find firmware agere_sta_fw.bin
Following login (I think) the ALT-F1 terminal shows the above message plus the following:
eth1: orinoco_reset: Error -2 re-initializing firmware
eth1: Device has been disabled!
Lo and behold, the wireless doesn't work.
I tried installing the windows drivers using NDIS, but the original drivers that ship with the laptop produce an "Invalid Driver!" message when installed using the ndisgtk tool.
I would be grateful if someone could provide some guidance.
