In the past I installed Mint/Ubuntu 9.04 (I believe) on a Dell laptop, but
had trouble with the Broadcom wireless card. Nothing I googled helped. The
only advice was to wait for 10.04.
Well, yesterday I installed a MiniInspiron with Remix 10.04. Again, the
b-com did not work out of the box. They lied. However, a simple and quick
apt-get and then install <whatever> from a terminal window fixed the
(What __wasn't__ nice was that in order to install Remix in the first place,
I had to create an live-USB from ISO drive. After struggling with the
creation on both Ubuntu (8.04) and Mac, I raised a white flag and went to
Windows. Yes, I know. It was too easy creating it on Windows. Maybe had I
used a later version of Ubuntu it would have been easier. Oh well. I guess
there are a few things Windows is good for...sigh)
Learned a good lesson on both assignments.
