Broadcom Drivers
« le: 25 juillet 2013 à 16:43:49 »
Not sure what is going on but I have found that some of the newer distros are missing Broadcom drivers. While distro hopping, I have so far found that the newest Lubuntu, Fedora and Debian will no longer work with my netbook. Crunch Bang is the only one that will work so far but it just does not have enough of a DE for my likes. Any ideas?

I might add that Mint is all in on Mate and their Cinnamon DE and Magiea is mostly Gnome 3 tho they do have LXDE but I don't want to have to weed out all the Gnome stuff to make it work. What a pain to find a nice small OS for my netbook...

This is all new to me.

All Debian versions up till now worked just great! Now?........not so much. Crunch Bang is the only one that works anymore. All of the new versions of anything Debian, Mint, Ubuntu and Fedora do not work on a fresh install.

Im having to download an old version of Lubuntu to load, I will see if that works out better but looks like LXDE could go the way of the dodo bird. Linux DE's are a bit of a mess now with the great divide of QT and whatever Gnome is doing with GTK 3.

Bento Village contains the braodcom drivers. If you consider giving it a try, I have uploaded the most recent update with a few corrections just a pair of days ago: Bento Village is available.

err.......Bento Village? I thought it was Bento Box?

EDIT: I will download it and give it a whirl in the morning Melody. Does it use LXpanel?

Hi,

Bento Village : last person who offered to contribute spontaneously named it that way and I thought it sounded nice. Why not? That could be his final name. I am happy to know you like it!

As usual if you find anything which could be improved I'd be happy to know about it.

What if I remove just the mc desktop file ? Tint2 is not default started, how did you find out it is still installed? :D
(just joking : it is a very small package, I thought it can't  hurt if I leave it in, but indeed I can remove it).

Nothing else? Do you have suggests for some drivers to add?

Note for myself: I could remove fslint.

Yea, both MC and Tint show up in the menu.  No idea what Lint is.

What's up with the funky blue screen at boot? It has a little icon at the bottom of it.

That's tint2rc gui configurator which in fact does not work. I'll try to think about removing them desktop files. The blue screen at boot, no idea. What machine do you start it in?
