how to pass a command to the kernel at the grub (pendrive mepis 8 live)?

Compaq Mini 701ES

    * Works very well: Wireless, suspend, hardware function buttons, sd card reader, bluetooth, webcam, power management (incl. screen dim, freq scaling,…)

      sound doesn’t work out of the box see .

      Ethernet port: Needs acpi_os_name=Linux passed as a kernel parameter; See
    * Wifi needs non-free driver, but works out of the box.

not sure if you mean grub legacy or grub2 with Mepis...but what happens if you press E (for edit) and append your cheat code "acpi_os_name=Linux" to the end of the kernel line?

once it works we can give you an idea how to fix it so it works with kernel upgrades

Why did you put non-code in "Code:" blocks?
