    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Hello, sorry for the delay - I encountered some problems and had 3 applications to freeze on 9.10 (never had this before) - I am now thinking of returning back to 9.04 that was running smoothly ! - I have not decided yet because I have a Window XP that I can not loose it's running an important Access database

    This is the blacklist.comf output - I can not see the lines blacklist ssb or b43 ? notice the last 2 lines?

    # This file lists those modules which we don't want to be loaded by
    # alias expansion, usually so some other driver will be loaded for the
    # device instead.

    # evbug is a debug tool that should be loaded explicitly
    blacklist evbug

    # these drivers are very simple, the HID drivers are usually preferred
    blacklist usbmouse
    blacklist usbkbd

    # replaced by e100
    blacklist eepro100

    # replaced by tulip
    blacklist de4x5

    # causes no end of confusion by creating unexpected network interfaces
    blacklist eth1394

    # snd_intel8x0m can interfere with snd_intel8x0, doesn't seem to support much
    # hardware on its own (Ubuntu bug #2011, #6810)
    blacklist snd_intel8x0m

    # Conflicts with dvb driver (which is better for handling this device)
    blacklist snd_aw2

    # causes failure to suspend on HP compaq nc6000 (Ubuntu: #10306)
    blacklist i2c_i801

    # replaced by p54pci
    blacklist prism54

    # replaced by b43 and ssb.
    blacklist bcm43xx

    # most apps now use garmin usb driver directly (Ubuntu: #114565)
    blacklist garmin_gps

    # replaced by asus-laptop (Ubuntu: #184721)
    blacklist asus_acpi

    # low-quality, just noise when being used for sound playback, causes
    # hangs at desktop session start (Ubuntu: #246969)
    blacklist snd_pcsp

    # ugly and loud noise, getting on everyone's nerves; this should be done by a
    # nice pulseaudio bing (Ubuntu: #77010)
    blacklist pcspkr

    # EDAC driver for amd76x clashes with the agp driver preventing the aperture
    # from being initialised (Ubuntu: #297750). Blacklist so that the driver
    # continues to build and is installable for the few cases where its
    # really needed.
    blacklist amd76x_edac
    b43
    ssb

    Thanks

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    JerryMooers: I'm not sure exactly what you're asking. Do you want to know which package you need to install in Synaptic to get your wireless card working? If so, post the output of these commands and I can probably tell you:
    Code:
    lshw -C Network
    dmesg | grep wlan
    sharobim: delete the lines that read "b43" and "ssb" from the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file, and add the line:
    Code:
    blacklist ndiswrapper
    to that file. Then proceed with the rest of the steps in the last post that I wrote for you, and please let me know the results.

    Also, if you want to switch back to Ubuntu 9.04 instead, you should be able to do that relatively easily without losing your Windows system. If Windows is installed on a separate partition of your hard drive, just boot to the Ubuntu live CD and tell it to reinstall Ubuntu without touching the Windows partition, and everything should be fine. If you need more detailed instructions I can provide them.

    If you have Windows running in a virtualized environment (VMware, VirtualBox, KVM, etc.) you should also be able to reinstall Ubuntu without losing that.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Sorry to disapoint you, I followed your instruction and could not connect. I also removed the Wi program that was automaticaly replaced by network manager. No possible wireless connection now.
    I understand that the issue is a challenge for you and you probably want to find the root of the problem and a solution, therefore since this is not an essential system for me, I am willing to help you experiment if you like. Later I can always revert to 9.04 at least it was not freezing..! I understand now that just by installing the 9.04 CD it should replace the actual Ubuntu that is in a partition of it's own. Windows XP is in another partition all together.
    Thanks again and regards

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    sharobim: thanks for trying that. It seems like for some reason ndiswrapper was still controlling your card instead of the b43 driver, so you weren't actually able to test what I was hoping you could test. If you don't mind continuing to try to sort this, I don't mind continuing to help (but if you really don't care because this is only a secondary computer, that's fine as well).

    What I would ask you to do next, if you want to do it, is run these commands, which should ensure that b43 takes over:
    Code:
    sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    sudo rmmod b43
    sudo rmmod ssb
    sudo modprobe b43
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    (Note that you may get error messages when running some of these commands that say something like "ERROR: Module xxx does not exist in /proc/modules". These messages are fine; don't worry about them. If you get any other sort of error, however, please post it.)

    Now try connecting with NetworkManager and see if it works any better. If not, please post:

    Code:
    lshw -C Network
    dmesg | grep -e wlan -e b43
    grep -e b43 -e wlan /var/log/syslog

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    b43 is still not claiming the device, which is very bizarre. Please run these two commands, then reboot (no need to post the output unless you get an error):
    Code:
    echo "blacklist ndiswrapper" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    sudo update-initramfs -k all
    After the reboot, please run these and post the output:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep -e ndis -e b43
    sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    sudo rmmod b43
    sudo rmmod ssb
    sudo modprobe b43
    lshw -C Network
    dmesg | grep -e b43
    Then please try connecting a few times. If it still fails, please post:
    Code:
    grep -e b43 -e wlan /var/log/syslog
    dmesg | grep -e b43 -e wlan
    Sorry for asking you to post so much. I'm really confused as to why ndiswrapper won't stop claiming the module; hopefully this will help figure it out and get you connected. Thanks for all your patience. And if at any point you decide you don't have time for all this, that's alright.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    I am the one that is sorry to give you a hard time - I have been in your situation before - Remember I am learning in the process and If I can help even better - The last command required an option ?

    mike@mike-laptop:~$ echo "blacklist ndiswrapper" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    [sudo] password for mike:
    blacklist ndiswrapper
    mike@mike-laptop:~$ sudo update-initramfs -k all
    You must specify at least one of -c, -u, or -d.

    Usage: /usr/sbin/update-initramfs [OPTION]...

    Options:
    -k [version] Specify kernel version or 'all'
    -c Create a new initramfs
    -u Update an existing initramfs
    -d Remove an existing initramfs
    -t Take over a custom initramfs with this one
    -b Set alternate boot directory
    -v Be verbose
    -h This message

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    sharobim: sorry, you're correct that the last command should have been:
    Code:
    sudo update-initramfs -k all -u
    (Notice the -u, which I forgot about). Please give it a try with this option, then follow the rest of the commands from my last post and let me know...

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    It is quite strange as you say and I have a message on the network manager complaining that the Wireless device is not managed?
    I can see from the syslog dump that there is still an error - Sorry for the trouble.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    sharobim: I think that "device unmanaged" line that you noted may well be relevant, and that it would be worth giving this a try on wicd again instead of NetworkManager. If you have time, please install wicd again, then run:

    Code:
    sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    sudo rmmod b43
    sudo rmmod ssb
    sudo modprobe b43
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    then try to connect, then post:
    Code:
    ifconfig
    grep -e b43 -e wlan /var/log/syslog
    dmesg | grep -e b43 -e wlan
    There are also all those lines that say "...deauthenticated...reason: 2..." which I think are related to the device unmanaged issue and ultimately have to do with NetworkManager being buggy. So hopefully wicd will not have this problem, and will allow you to connect now that you're using the b43 driver (previously you had only used wicd in combination with ndiswrapper).
