Issues after upgrade from 7.10 to 8.04, MBP
Heya, kids and gurus of the Hardy Heron Ubuntu distro. I have been running Ubuntu 7.10 on my 2.4 Ghz 15 inch MBP, dual-booted with Mac OS X Leopard, for about six months now, and prefer Linux to Leopard. I just upgraded from 7.10 to 8.04, and have a few bugs I'd really like to work out.
First off, my optical drive isn't working at the moment, which means a clean install is impossible unless I find some other way to install it.
Issue one, and most important: wireless doesn't work. I had it working with the madwifi drivers very nicely; a bit buggy but totally manageable and functional. After the update, wireless won't function at all -- not even recognized by Linux. I need wireless to work because I am rather nomadic and couch-hop between friends' houses on the weekends.
Issue two, less-but-still-important: no sound. Volume controls appear fine, and the audio drivers appear to be correctly installed.
Any help anyone could give on either of the issues (someone ride to my wireless rescue, pls, kthxbai) would be greatly appreciated.
Blawrgiddy blawrgiddy blawr, Ubuntu.
