I am trying to get wireless working a lenovo g560. I tried following the instructions on the debian site here http://wiki.debian.org/wl but it is not working. At step 7 I get an error that modprobe does not exist. Anybody know of a straightforward tutorial or got any tips?


/sbin is not part of your PATH and thats why its complaining. So try /sbin/modprobe.

  • @thesteve: If /sbin is not in your PATH, it's because you're doing something wrong. The commands should be run as root, and any reasonable method to become root will add /sbin to the PATH. – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Mar 4 '11 at 21:37
