Download the right driver from here : iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode. Copy the firmware to your /lib/firmware: cp iwlwifi-*.ucode /lib/firmware Load the driver: modprobe -r iwlwifi modprobe iwlwifi rfkill unblock all Edit Install build-essential and linux headers sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) Download iwlwifi-6000-ucode-9....

The ath5k driver is not related to your hardware. Trying anything with it will not fix your problem, since it is a driver for atheros hardware, not Intel. It may be that there's a second hardware switch on your laptop. Look for a slider or something of the sort. If you can't find that, check your BIOS; I've seen cases where the 'hardware' rfkill switch was ...

or the dkms could be broken, as is often more the case. look for firegl.c patches from people...like me up to 4.4.x but x118 breaks things. you need to downgrade for force version in synaptic of all installed x packages and freeze them form updates. of course a dist-upgrade will bork them , so be careful.

This solution worked for me. The procedure I followed was: I followed the steps for my distribution (Debian Jessie) from here. I saved de driver for Linux of the manufacturer (which comes with the equipment in the CDROM), and I unzipped it to a folder. In the folder, I typed make (as root), and I got an error. So, I did the modification above, and it ...

You have full support from official tp-link webpage, here the source (to compile): http://www.tp-link.com/res/down/soft/TL-WN823N(EU)_V2_160315_Linux.zip be careful with the hw version: you can choose v1 or v2.

After a research and the hints from Stephen Kitt, Ive found the solution. Like dmesg was showing "...the firmeware couldnt be loaded" so I installed the package "firmware-iwlwifi" which was missing. Thanks for the help.

It depends on the type of device for which the driver is written. A simple, but common example are PCI devices. PCI devices identify themselves with a series of registers in the PCI Configuration Space. So, for example, a network card will identify which type of card it is with a series of register values that the Linux kernel can read. Device drivers for ...

For a conventional operating system (not running under virtualization), kernel space and ring0 are synonymous in terms of the privilege. However, I must explain them separately, to highlight the differences present, and commonality they share. Kernel space - OS will typically have two modes of execution: kernel space, and the user space. Kernel space is ...

The most common issue with a defective mouse is the clicking which works on and off or starts to click by itself or double-click when you click. Any software patch will only waste your time as it would be very annoying to work with and the situation will continue to deteriorate.

The e1000e driver is the one that can run the I2xx intel Ethernet Controllers. And the latest e1000e driver (as of this writing) is capable of running the I219 chip. The The NVM Checksum Is Not Valid message during boot is what was preventing the older drivers from being loaded. On other OSes (notably MS windows) that error is ignored. But Linux appears ...

You might need to get iwlwifi-firmware and a kernel from backports. Add a line like: deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ jessie-backports main contrib non-free to /etc/apt/sources.list. The run apt-get update and install the package with apt-get -t jessie-backports install iwlwifi-firmware. And do something similar for a kernel (I don't remember ...

Just my 2 cents... It is more than true that spinning down the disks decreases their service life. Years of experience have shown that starting and stopping the disk motor causes far more fatigue than 24/7 spin. All my disks with big start/stop count have reallocated sectors and all my disks that spin 10 years 24/7 are (believe it or not) good as new. After ...

No, you cannot update your repos' database fetching the new ones' content from the Internet, without having an Internet Connection. You could update it only from a local device (i.e. cd-rom). It's not a matter of apt-get that you can workaround with aptitude. You just need an Internet connection. If you don't have one nor can in any way solve this issue (for ...

I understood the Nouveau should be disabled manually before of installing another video driver. So I did it and I've got trouble to use the GT520's under Fedora 24. My results: the repository's one has a problem with the secondary video; the downloaded driver has a problem of shutting the desktop later. The Nouveau came back then. It is flawless. Even ...

Usb devices are far more complex than simply pipes you read and write. You'll have to write code to manipulate them. You don't need to write a kernel driver. See http://libusb.org and http://libusb.sourceforge.net/api-1.0. This is possibly Linux-specific. Under Mac OS X there are user-level functions in I/O Kit that will let you access USB. Here's a little ...

On Debian, the recommended approach if you want to install the proprietary NVIDIA drivers is to enable the contrib and non-free repositories and install the packaged driver. Adapting the instructions for Debian 8 (do everything as root or via sudo): add contrib non-free to the appropriate line in /etc/apt/sources.list, so you end up with something like ...
