So I boot up this new operating system http://susestudio.com/a/8WeZJJ/me-os--2
. (You can test the operating system here.) Shortly after, I find out it cannot connect to the internet with current configurations. There is no automatic network finder.
I read the instructions that came with the OS. They say to find INF files for my wireless card -- Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 1030 -- here are farther instructions and files that I found (not INF, but this is what I found googling):
The iwlagn driver will look for the file iwlwifi-6000g2b-6.ucode using the
kernel's firmware_class infrastructure. More information can be found under
Documentation/firmware_class in kernel source. In order to function
correctly, you need to have this support enabled in your kernel. When
you configure the kernel, you can find this option in the following
Device Drivers ->
Generic Driver Options ->
Userspace firmware loading support
You can determine if your kernel currently has firmware loader support
by looking for the CONFIG_FW_LOADER definition on your kernel's
In addition to having the firmware_class support in your kernel, you
must also have a working udev and uevent infrastructure configured.
The steps for installing and configuring udev are very
Once you have the firmware loader in place (or if you aren't sure and
you just want to try things to see if it works), you need to install
the microcode file into the appropriate location.
Where that appropriate location is depends (again) on your system
distribution. You can typically find this location by looking in the
udev scripts of your distro, the default is /lib/firmware.
Installation of the firmware is simply:
% cp iwlwifi-6000g2b-6.ucode /lib/firmware
You can now load the driver (see the INSTALL and README.iwlwifi provided with
the iwlwifi package for information on building and using that driver.)
I have never installed anything like this before. I tried the instructions, with no luck...
Thanks for helping (in advance)!
