View Full Version : [ubuntu] wireless samsung n210 plus

September 17th, 2010, 01:44 PM
Hello ):P

I've made the choice to install ubuntu 10.04 on my samsung n210 plus netbook

I know there is a ubuntu netbook version but I prefer the original version of ubuntu 10.04 ;)

The problem is that the wireless doesn't work, I had a look on the forum and find solution only for ubuntu netbook version and I actually didn't understand anything :(

I've downloaded the driver hybrid-portsrc-x86_32-v5.60.48.36 and my version of ubuntu is 32 bit.

As it's says on the readme file, I've checked it I had the kernel package by entering this command;
ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build
but it says;
no such file or directory

I was not sure about the 'uname', should I replace it by the name of the package or something ???

Thank you so much for helping me :D

hey ;)

I entered the command;

lspci -nn | grep Network
sudo lshw -C network
as I found it in an other thread but didn't find the same so can not follow the same instruction.
What I found;

:confused: It's seems that I am in an ubuntu 64 bit !!! Do you think I should reinstall it as a 32 bit ???

I now entered the command

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential

and this is what I found;

linux-headers-2.6.32-24-generic est déjà la plus récente version disponible.
linux-headers-2.6.32-24-generic passé en « installé manuellement ».
E: Impossible de trouver le paquet build-essential

Have you updated your system using the hard wired link. You need to do that so that any drivers that are available will be downloaded. Then check the System->Admin->Hardware to see if any driver needs enabling.
