View Full Version : [all variants] Upgrade to Hardy, no more wireless DWL-610

May 29th, 2008, 09:24 AM

I had the BAD IDEA to upgrade to hardy.



1) no more wireless: DWL-610 is not recognized by the system.
Any hint?

2) Firefox 3.0 is a PAIN IN THE @%%: every time I wrote something
in the URL requester, it give me a list of internet sites:
WHO THE HELL ASKED TO DO THIS ? I DON'T want this to happen
but I can't see an option to disable this stupidity (that's
consuming a lot of cpu on my P3-700)
Does someone know how to disable this idiot thing, or how to
reinstall the old but gold Firefox 2.x ?

3) No more xmms. The only mp3 player that work only as an MP3
Player. Now we must use that horrible xmms2. A Client and a
Server just to listen an mp3 ? No thanks, I prefer mpg123.

Any help is appreciated :(

If your wireless card is conected internally can you post the output of:


or if it is connected via usb:


You may need to install the linux-restricted-modules which includes the madwifi drivers.

I was thinking the same thing when i upgrade my system, but now (after a couple of weeks) i am very happy with it...
I kept the FF3, but you can always unistall it...FF2 is still in the repos.
As for the xmms thing, i never used it.Its ugly and do not cooperate with my window manager of choice (dwm).Instead i use mpd+mpc+sonata...very lightweight, better than xmms...try this out...its worth a try.

Yeah I forgot to mention that FF3 is still having loads of problems. Wait on that for like a year :)
