I have went back to Debian from FC2 and I am trying to add proper drivers for Linux. I am a Newbie and I don't know how to do this. I have done some searching on the web but I am not finding very helpful helpful information. From what I've read so far it looks like I will have to change the kernel, is that right?
Anyway I will continue to search the web, I just thought I'd throw it up here to see if anybody could give me some help.
Distribution: Slackware, Windows, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS X
what hardware specifically are you having trouble with? it may be as simple as a modprobe, or insmod, or it could be as complicated as recompiling a kernel. with more specifics, i.e. what hardware is not functioning properly, maybe we can help you. ;-)
Well from previous use of the Debian version I have.
