Then I copied over the firmware and compat-wireless to the notebook I need it on because there is no working ethernet socket. It looks like it will work OK, but, unfortunately, the lubuntu install is very light on needed files. For example, it has no gcc which is needed to compile compat-wireless etc.
I have tried to download gcc on another PC and copy it over but it is complaining that it is the wrong version and there are also missing dependencies.
Any idea how to install the right version of gcc for the lubuntu kernel without any internet connection? (gcc is not even on the CDROM!!)
Kernel is 126.96.36.199-generic lubuntu...
Very fine work on the guide and on your continued support.
