View Full Version : [ubuntu] Hardware window in Minimal install

February 20th, 2010, 02:53 PM

I installed from the minimal CD, instaled gnome-core, gdm, gnome-utils, network-manager. My wired connection works fine, but not my wireless. I want look at the hardware drivers and try to turn on the wireless or update the driver, but can't seem to find it.

Working on a dell Mini 9 if that helps at all.

Any advice greatly appreciated.
