I've bought a Dell inspiron 1420 laptop and i am having a hard time
configuring the wireless in Linux.
The wireless card is a Dell Wireless 1395
Lspci output views it as a broadcom 4310
I've tried to install driver ndiswrapper with various versions of XP drivers
(bcmwl5.inf) with no success.
Doing a "ndiswrapper -l" outputs : "bcmwl5 installed". But no reference to
Next step, i figure, is fiddling with B43-fwcutter.
Problem is this card is never listed on compatibility (dell 1390 is,
broadcom 4309 and 4311 are...)
Anybody has succeded in configuring this hardware?

when I try to install or update some programs with yum I get this error
> Transaction Check Error:
> installing package kernel-188.8.131.52-12.fc8.i686 needs 108KB on the /boot filesystem
and I also get the same errors with other packages. Anyone have a clue on what's going on?
Sometimes I have a strange problem: When the desktop loads (gnome/kde) my mousecursor sometimes doesn't appear. When I move the mouse I see the icons lighten up. ctrl+alt+backspace doesn't help. I need to restart the machine...
Is there a solution for this problem? Also my Fedora crashes sometimes when I do a shutdown. (When you see the list where the daemons are being disabled)
These two problems occur at random.
For this reason (beside the wifi that doesn't work...) I am considering to reinstall Ubuntu.

I've installed Fedora 8 on my Asus A6R notebook. It has an ATI Radeon Xpress
200M video card. I've managed to install drivers for it and I'm wondering if
it can support compiz fusion? If so, can someone help me install it please?
Thanks in advance!
I'm trying to install Fedora 8 x86_64 on my HP Compaq 8710p laptop.
The DVD boots fine, I tell the install to do a new install, come to the
blue screen that
loads some drivers and end up at the disk check requester. After the
check is done (or skipped),
/sbin/loader blows me away with a SIGSEGV error and shuts down the system.
I have also tried to install Ubuntu 7.10 and OpenSUSE 10.3. They install
and works flawlessly.
However, I'm a Fedora guy ;-)
Some system facts:
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T7700 @ 2.40GHz
4 GB RAM
ST9120823AS hard disc
NVIDIA Quadro NVS 320M graphics card
TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-L632M
Intel 82566MM Gigabit LAN
Intel WiFi Link 4965AG
The Fedora 8 KDE LIVE CD/DVD seems to boot up just fine. Can't make a
clean (swedish) install with this though.
I'm fedora guy and aim using Fedora 8 with latest fedora kernel and other
latest updates. I have HP pavilion dv6560ee notebook which is having
wireless card from Intel (i.e *Intel* Pro/*Wireless 3945ABG*). When i use it
first time it works perfectly. DHCP, routing etc worked fine. But when it
restarted it won't work. I tried google and did many thing but still no
working. Can you help me in fixing this wireless issue. Thanks in advance.
Thanks & Regards,
