My computer is a Lenovo Thinkpas Edge 13, Intel i3 1.33ghz.
I've installed Slackware 14 on VirtualBox in Ubuntu to see what amount of configuration is required before possibly making the jump to Slackware.
So far I'm stuck getting wifi to work.
With 'lspci' in Ubuntu I get:
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000
09:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 03)
Whereas in Slackware 'lspci' only gives me:
00:03.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82540EM Ethernet controller (rev 2)
And no other mentions of ethernet, wifi or wireless. Any hints on how to get Slackware to see me wifi chip? (I've checked Slackbook and searched around but haven't found anything specific enough to get me going).
I might be over my head with Slackware but once I get the internet connection working (I only have wifi) I'll have a fair chance of checking it out and reading about the configurations inside Slackware - instead of constantly having to switch between the Virtual Machine and the browser window in Ubuntu.
