I've installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my 8 gb USB stick, and got it running. It seems like I don't have the full Ubuntu OS on the stick though, and that was my intention. Anyway, I can run a "demo" version it seems, and it looks like the normal installation of Ubuntu but with a installer package on the desktop.
The issue surfaces when i try to download the driver for my wireless card, it downloads it for a bit, then throws some error, and if I press anything after that my screen basically looks like a graphic card meltdown. ( lines in different colors all over the screen ).
All I want to do is have the USB being able to use the computers wireless card. It does not even have to be Ubuntu, just a basic OS i can access the internet with, and save files to the local hard drive. (A basic text editor aswell)
Does anyone have any idea?
EDIT: This is how it happens
- I choose "Try Ubuntu" in the UNetBootin bootloader
- It loads Ubuntu (without the files i made last time i tried this)
- It tells me I'm missing a driver, in this case Broadcom Wireless driver.
I press install and about 2/3 in i get this error:
BUG: Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at (null)
and log of the call stack, but i didn't manage to write it down before the screen are unreadable
Note: One of my attempts it installed the driver just fine and asked me to restart. I did, and noticed the Wireless button was blue (on my laptop). However, just before i added my home network, it froze and i had to restart. Driver was gone, and i was back to scratch.
