How do I get nVidia drivers and wireless to work on Acer Aspire 1363WLMi laptop?


Drivers are downloaded and installed, but I can't get X or the internet up and running yet. What code do I need to include in this post for it to be specific?

I've managed to fix it by installing the 2.6.11 kernel... which was trouble enough in itself cos it didn't seem to like the reiserfs filesystem so I had to reformat and reinstall slack on ext3! Flippin heck... My next job is to get the wireless working!

I'm so clueless!

what os are you using? under the latest mepis (6.9 RCx.x) it works out of the box but that is still in beta, wait for the final release and try that if do not want to play with beta releases. final release should be here soon. i have mine working under mepis 6.0 lts but i do believe i have un- and reinstalled ndiswrapper. find the way (goolge) to properly uninstall it first
to activate my wireles under current mepis (6.0 lts) i have to start a gui proggie called 'wireless assistant' each time i (re)start my computer, click on my avaiable wireless station (i use a static ip network, may be that is why i have to do this) but it takes less than 10 seconds to do this so it no hassle really. it the connects instantly.
