MacBook Pro 8,1 With Ubuntu
I just had to have my MacBook Pro 5,5 replaced, and they replaced it with the brand new 8,1. This is nice, except for the fact that I have now learned that I can't get the video or wireless drivers for this computer. I do not have any access to ethernet, and USB internet does not seem to work. Right now I have Ubuntu 10.04 32bit installed. The installation went fine, but I can't get any drivers. Is there any fix for this?
Here are the specs for this laptop:
Intel i5 Sandy Bridge 2.3GHz
320Gig HDD partitioned
Intel HD Graphics 3000 GPU
Airport Extreme Broadcom BCM43xx
-Broadcam Corporation Device 4331
If ANYONE can help me I'd greatly appreciate it. Perhaps there's another distro I can use, or maybe another release that works somewhat? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
