Hopeing to go back to the official kernel, or try out Fedora 10 or OpenSUSE 11.1 when they hit beta. (Since they use the 2.6.27 kernel). Hope they settle for 2.6.27 in the Intrepid release.

I have recently installed Ubuntu Hardy on a new HP DV5-1056tx laptop and am also having problems with the Intel wireless wifi link 5100 card install (although I appear to be having no problems with the nVidia 9600gt video card).
Unfortunately, the majority of what was said in this thread, and at, http://intellinuxwireless.org/?n=Info, went straight over my head, this being my first foray into linux usage. Looks like it will be back to using Vista for me until I can figure it all out :s
Here is my .config file for my 2.6.27-rc2
Well I decided to give Wolframarnolds suggestions ago. It's been a massively steep learning curve (which resulted in me having to reinstall Ubuntu because I changed the permissions on the /usr directory), but I think I've gotten something now. However, I'm stuck somewhere around these steps here;
When I try to use the "make" command I get the error message "*** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop." I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be in a directory or something, I've tried a few different targets doesn't seem to be working.
So I suppose my question is where should the iwlwifi-5000-ucode-5.4.A.11.tar.gz file be saved (or does it not matter)? and what directory (or anything else) should I be in to execute the make command?
Thanks for any help, this is all very new and different to me, (but I'm trying )
Yes, but does 2.6.27 actually work with the 5100?
What happens when you toggle the RF kill switch?
(this even breaks the Vista x64 driver...and only a power-cycle fixes it)
On 2.6.24-21 (with the compat iwl4965 module and the 5100 microcode) I can't get past that network disabled business.
That worked perfectly for one session only. As soon as I rebooted, it was dead and no tweaking or nudging will wake the thing up.
I'm considering getting a wireless express card with a proven stability record.
The extraction location doesn't matter; only where you copy it to.I've downloaded the above file fine but then I got a little confused, at first I just downloaded it to the desktop and then tried moving it into the /usr/src directory, I have no idea if it matters where it is. I managed to copy the ucode file into the stated directory, although I just extracted the file on the desktop and copied it from there, not sure if that's ok or not.
Yes, you need to "cd" to the compat... source directory. Get someone with a bit of Unix background to help you.When I try to use the "make" command I get the error message "*** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop." I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be in a directory or something, I've tried a few different targets doesn't seem to be working.
Doesn't really matter, all that matters is where you copy to extracted file to, see instructions.So I suppose my question is where should the iwlwifi-5000-ucode-5.4.A.11.tar.gz file be saved (or does it not matter)? and what directory (or anything else) should I be in to execute the make command?
