View Full Version : [ubuntu] Saving drivers for a reinstall?

September 7th, 2010, 04:11 AM
I want to wipe my drive and do a clean install of 10.04, but I don't want to bust out the 50ft network cable to get back online. I currently have the proper wireless drivers installed. Is there a way to save them off to a USB drive, so I can reinstall them after a clean install of Ubuntu? The driver I need/use is the Broadcom STA wireless driver.

Everything you installed with apt-get,aptitude or synaptic should be in /var/cache/apt/archives.
