    no wifi and more

    i had posted this perviously

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2044118

    i managed to get my computer to start, but every time it boots it gives me a choice of which mode to go in. how to i get rid of that.

    also, there is no wifi. in the past all i had to do was get a wired connection, install updated system76 drivers and reboot. this time it is not working. when i try to install the drivers from terminal, i get this:


    degobrah@system76-netbook:~$ sudo system76-driver
    [sudo] password for degobrah:

    raise KeyError(key)
    KeyError: 'GDMSESSION'

    raise KeyError(key)
    KeyError: 'GDMSESSION'


    what is that? also, every time i hit restart on my computer the screen just goes black. i have to manually restart my computer. don't know what is going on. really starting to regret upgrading to 12.04.

    Please. Any help!!

    Re: no wifi and more

    You did an upgrade from 10.04 or 11.10? They can be problematic and I personally avoid. Clean install for me. Could you supply the result of this from a terminal:

    sudo lshw -C network

    Re: no wifi and more

    Okay. Your wireless card is not showing up at all there. Try this:

    Code:
    lspci
    ... and post the result of that (down the bottom of the output you should see 'Network Controller' entry).

    Have you done an update then checked 'Additional Drivers'? Anything disabled in there for wireless?

    No wireless controller here either. Could you boot into a live session of 12.04 to see if the wireless works there?
