    I already try only third option of kernel script and i finally read XD

    Code:
    You must now boot into the new 2.6.32.3 kernel to build the b43 driver.
    After reboot, you will need to run part 2 of this script.
    You can get it at http://software.6368.co.cc/linux/b43/patches/b43_compile_2.6.32.3.sh
    The link is also in my first post on my b43 HowTo thread on UbuntuForums
    
    I have to reboot now?? Awwwwwwww. Oh, well. (After all, it's Linux. Who cares about rebooting :D)
    Excuse me for my first post but when i reboot in grub i didn't see the new kernel, but i see only the kernel 2.6.31-18

    Well... I rent a part of a webserver. If you can get yourself a domain name (for which you can change the name servers/dns servers) I can give you some space for free. The server is running everything you're likely to need, php, mysql, etc.

    Indolence: I've already found a host that suits my needs: cxr.cc. Thanks anyway though .

    Emas80:

    I just recompiled the newest stable kernel (2.6.32.3) from kernel.org and the b43 driver loads fine, but it won't connect to any networks.

    Did you compile your kernel using the Ubuntu/Debian way or the traditional way?

    I compiled mine by running:

    sudo su
    cd /usr/src
    wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...6.32.3.tar.bz2
    tar jxvf linux-2.6.32.3.tar.bz2
    cd linux-2.6.32.3
    cp /boot/config-`uname -r` ./.config
    make oldconfig
    make-kpkg clean
    CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=3 fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-cxl kernel_image kernel_headers modules_image
    dpkg -i ../linux-*.deb

    Is that basically what you did? The kernel I compiled can boot perfectly fine and can load any of my other modules (wl,nvidia,virtualbox,etc) and b43, but b43 won't connect to any networks. Dmesg doesn't give any errors either. By the way, this is my first time compiling a kernel.

    Thanks.

    I actually followed that thread to compile the kernel. I read that post about 10 times before I started compiling. Yet, I still missed it.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-karmic b43-fwcutter
    It turned out that I did in fact not have linux-backports-modules-karmic installed, but sadly installing it has not changed my situation. Any further help?

    Any updates? I got as far as you guys and when the system would freeze there would be no errors in the syslog. The last line mentioned loading the firmware so I tried using the newer 4.174.64.19 firmware like it says over at http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Dr...evice_firmware, but that also failed.

    I have clue what else to try

    The b43 driver is already enabled because I'm using the Ubuntu version of ".config" to compile. I have no idea why b43 loads but won't connect. Any suggestions?

    good luck with the Midterms !!

    i just reinstalled Ubuntu 9.10 ( havent even booted it yet !! ) i've went through all 34 pages of this thread but still have a couple of questions...

    1) will your script 100% work ? ( i'll manually update the kernel to 2.6.32.3 )
    2) is the b43 driver the same thing as that b43-fwcutter? ( if i apt-get that does that mean i'll have the b43 driver ? )
    3) should i or should i not install the broadcom STA driver ? ( that worked on previous installs of 9.10 but without monitor mode)
    4) is your 2 part script all i need to get it working ? or do i have to download something before running it other than the kernel ?
    5) might it need me to hard reset my network card ? :\

    THANK YOU
