  1. Ndiswrapper?
  2. I also got the black box, and an error. *** glibc detected *** free(): invalid next size (fast): 0x00000000011f0e30 *** Aborted
  3. Where do I pay to see Stank's nudes?

  4. Are you going to pay us?
  5. This site deals with resetting the bios passwords doing just that.
  6. Did this get the wifi working right?
  7. When I was screwing around with opensuse 11.1, I turned off hal and it screwed everything up. I believe that you need it, but I may be wrong. If it was my system, I just wouldn't update hal if it was giving me problems. edit: When you get the hal situation figured out, you will probably need to use ndiswrapper for the wlan0. My wife has an aspire one, and I needed to use ndiswrapper to get the card to work.
  8. When you first installed Ubuntu, did HAL shutdown? The problem is with the new updates, somethings not right. Without a network, you probably wont be able to reinstall Hal, unless you use revert back down to the old version from the ubuntu iso. BTW did you try to restart it? "sudo /etc/init.d/dbus restart"
  9. It looks like some people just reinstall the three hal packages: Hal, hal-device-manager, and hal-info. Have you used wireless on this machine before? Here's a few threads where people have fixed it (doing various things):
  10. Try text2pcap which comes with wireshark. It can save ascii to hex, or vice versa (which can then be opened with wireshark). I tried it, and I got a malformed ethernet packet. Perhaps that isn't the exact hex code? Anyway, maybe I did it wrong.
  11. I told him the same thing in a pm. Come to find out, the problem with the windows install was the fact that the windows xp disk didn't have the right sata drivers. There was also no disk drive, so he couldn't load them during the install. I pointed him towards something called slipstreaming, which allows you to make your own windows xp install disc, with whatever drivers you need. I haven't heard from him in a while, and I have no idea if this process even worked out.
  12. Ok. Here's the D600 spec. There's a list that states what wireless cards you may have: Intel® PRO Wireless 2200 WLAN (802.11b/g) MiniPCI; Wi-Fi compatible (standard) ****(try this one first) Intel® PRO Wireless 2100 WLAN (802.11b/g) MiniPCI; Wi-Fi compatible (optional) Dell TrueMobile™ 1350 WLAN (802.11b/g) MiniPCI Card; Wi-Fi compatible6 (optional) Dell TrueMobile™ 1450 Dual Band WLAN (802.11a/b/g) MiniPCI Card; Wi-Fi compatible6 (optional)
  13. It probably is. I've been reading other peoples posts about this laptop. You may have the pro/wireless 2100 mini pci card. Once you install the right driver, it will detect it and install it and you'll be on your way.
  14. They shouldn't. Supposedly under the "law", it's completely legal for you to ask them for your files, even if you don't have any. They wont question why, because there are tons of other people doing this as well. I believe it's just another way for them to make money to be honest. If you have a big file, they will charge you. I believe the maximum amount they can charge is $30.
  15. I believe there should be a tab that says Network. It's beneath communication.
