    Error message in Terminal

    I am trying to get my wireless working, but when I put in commands to get it working I get error messages.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source broadcom-sta-common broadcom-sta-source
    E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree
    E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
    Code:
    sudo modprobe b43
    WARNING: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf line 56: ignoring bad line starting with 'Ic3man07'
    WARNING: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf line 57: ignoring bad line starting with 'sudo'
    I thought maybe the software center or another terminal was causing a conflict so I rebooted then tried again. Unfortunately I am getting the same messages.

    It seems that the lock hasn't been properly released. See http://askubuntu.com/questions/15433...g-lock-problem for a complete discussion of this problem.

    Re: Error message in Terminal

    I am new to ubuntu, so I am not always sure what I am looking at. The first and second commands work now, but I am still getting the third error message. Any ideas?

    Re: Error message in Terminal

    Have you edited the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf at all?
    Please post the output of

    Code:
    cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Just FYI the first two and the third problems are not connected in any way.

    Re: Error message in Terminal

    Yeah, I thought it might not be, it just happened to be part of what I was doing at the time. I figured that I didn't want to leave anything out. I did edit the blacklist. I was following instructions on another thread about getting my wireless to work.

    Per your request:
    Code:
    # This file lists those modules which we don't want to be loaded by
    # alias expansion, usually so some other driver will be loaded for the
    # device instead.
    
    # evbug is a debug tool that should be loaded explicitly
    blacklist evbug
    
    # these drivers are very simple, the HID drivers are usually preferred
    blacklist usbmouse
    blacklist usbkbd
    
    # replaced by e100
    blacklist eepro100
    
    # replaced by tulip
    blacklist de4x5
    
    # causes no end of confusion by creating unexpected network interfaces
    blacklist eth1394
    
    # snd_intel8x0m can interfere with snd_intel8x0, doesn't seem to support much
    # hardware on its own (Ubuntu bug #2011, #6810)
    blacklist snd_intel8x0m
    
    # Conflicts with dvb driver (which is better for handling this device)
    blacklist snd_aw2
    
    # causes failure to suspend on HP compaq nc6000 (Ubuntu: #10306)
    blacklist i2c_i801
    
    # replaced by p54pci
    blacklist prism54
    
    # replaced by b43 and ssb.
    blacklist bcm43xx
    
    # most apps now use garmin usb driver directly (Ubuntu: #114565)
    blacklist garmin_gps
    
    # replaced by asus-laptop (Ubuntu: #184721)
    blacklist asus_acpi
    
    # low-quality, just noise when being used for sound playback, causes
    # hangs at desktop session start (Ubuntu: #246969)
    blacklist snd_pcsp
    
    # ugly and loud noise, getting on everyone's nerves; this should be done by a
    # nice pulseaudio bing (Ubuntu: #77010)
    blacklist pcspkr
    
    # EDAC driver for amd76x clashes with the agp driver preventing the aperture
    # from being initialised (Ubuntu: #297750). Blacklist so that the driver
    # continues to build and is installable for the few cases where its
    # really needed.
    blacklist amd76x_edac
    Ic3man07
    sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    Re: Error message in Terminal

    I'm not sure what you were trying to accomplish by editing it, but the file is messed up- open it and remove the lines

    Code:
    Ic3man07
    sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    


    Then try the modprobe command.
