Yes, when doing it use apt-get remove --purge kernel-image-???? to remove the configuration files as well.

Lexmark x1270 run as printer under Ubuntu using Z600-v1.0-1 driver. You can search at the net how to install this driver. It's easy

It is for Fedora so you will need to change different file locations most likely use uname -r to show us the kernel you are running.

Hi,

HappyTux, I hope you are still subscribed to this thread.

I'm messing around a little bit, and at the moment I'm reinstalling Debian. You said that to install the Linux 2.6 kernel I can type linux26 at the installation start screen. I did this and it seemed to work good, but when it comes to the part where it needs to detect the hard drives it freezes at 84%. Do you have any idea why?

Thanks,
Conrad

I left the installation running when it stopped at 84% when I went to work and when I came back it progressed. But, it looks like its installing the 2.6.8-3-386 and not the 2.6.16. Does this mean that 2.6.8 is the better one for my system? And by the way I'm doing a network install if that is any help.

If anyone can share their thoughts it would be great.

I gave up on installing 2.6 from the start. Just upgraded.

Returning to a previous question

I am referring to the question of HapyTux on page 4 of this thread:
Code:
wifi0     Link encap:UNSPEC  HWaddr 00-11-50-71-8E-E7-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00 -00
          BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:199
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
          Interrupt:169 Memory:d0a60000-d0a70000
This is quite definitely no wireless network adapter. To me this looks really much like a FireWire pseudo network adapter, which would also make sense with lsmod output HappyTux posted. I would much rather assume that the wifi adapter's driver is simply not loaded.
