  1. First off thank you for any help you offer mein advance I do appreciate it. This is my lspci [root@localhost ~]# /sbin/lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc Unknown device 5a31 (rev 01) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS480 PCI Bridge 00:06.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS480 PCI Bridge 00:12.0 IDE interface: ATI Technologies Inc 4379 Serial ATA Controller (rev 80) 00:13.0 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc IXP SB400 USB Host Controller (rev 80) 00:13.1 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc IXP SB400 USB Host Controller (rev 80) 00:13.2 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc IXP SB400 USB2 Host Controller (rev 80) 00:14.0 SMBus: ATI Technologies Inc IXP SB400 SMBus Controller (rev 82) 00:14.1 IDE interface: ATI Technologies Inc Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller (rev 80) 00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SB450 HDA Audio (rev 01) 00:14.3 ISA bridge: ATI Technologies Inc IXP SB400 PCI-ISA Bridge (rev 80) 00:14.4 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc IXP SB400 PCI-PCI Bridge (rev 80) 01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RC410 [Radeon Xpress 200M] 02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc.

RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10) I dowloaded the drivers from ati.com ran the install Every thing went through great this is what I saw after the install https://www.linux-noob.com/forums/style_ima...s/quicktime.gif now when I try desktop effects i get nothing but a white screen any ideas?
  2. We'll I am really upset it turns out that my wireless card is not supported in Fedora, I have the Atheros AR5BXB61 aka AR5211 chipset now I have read a team is working on making functional drivers but as of right now: no dice . Although what I don't understand is that in both Backtrack 2&3 my Wireless card worked? Am I missing something? Also I got ndiswrapper to install but now when I open a terminal and su then input ndiswrapper commands they are not found? any idea? thanks
  3. I figured it out!!!! <_<d@#$ that really sucked, I had to google it in thirty different times in a million different context but I found it. I added the # # sudo rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-8.rpm then # # sudo rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-livna to add the new repository and lastly I used # # sudo yum -y install ndiswrapper thanks anyweb for the guide and idea's for this I am reading now and going to implement if I can, I'll post any problems and my eventual success.
  4. this is what I get when I use yum for a lot of things not just NDISWRAPPER, any suggestions. I'm using Fedora 8 So obviously I feel like an idiot, how would I download and manually install anything for that matter from an ****.tar.gz ?
  5. Hello I am new to Linux and I have been searching this for a week now. I have a new Toshiba Satellite with the Atheros AR5bxb61 mini pci-e card in it. in the network device control it shows ath0 but when i try to activate it it say's "device does not seem to be present delaying initialization." I am a noob to linux and desperately want to understand and power use linux to it's max, but i am starting to get frustrated cause BT3 live cd & USB both can use my wireless better than windows. can someone help me understand this please. Thanks
  6. Okay I was playing and I screwed up bad, I try'd to dual boot BT3 and XP Pro on my Toshiba Notebook and now I have this error (Invalid Partition Table). I try'd to Redo the LILO.conf but get a read-only system returned. Please help I have been working on this for 3 1/2 days I'm stumped. Thanks for any help. I was installing Backtrack 3 beta, I followed remote-exploit's walk through but it was for BT2I resized the HDD partition to allow 16Gb for BT3. To resize the partition I used Partition magic 8. I used this walk through www.offensive-security.com/documentation/backtrack-hd-install.pdf. I followed these instructions to a T except I had windows installed already so I changed hda1 to hda2, hda2 to hda3 and so on. And last I used the backtrack installer and left all option at default except mount point from hda1 to hda2. I followed these directions and then the system bricked on me, the only thing I found that I could done wrong is on the Install i did not uncheck the option that said "Restore original MBR after LILO" If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it.

  7. Hey Man I don't know if you have solved your problem yet But there are three types of windows License Upgrade, OEM, and Volume, Each has a particular kinda prod. Key they will accept. You must use the specific install disc with that key. now that is not to say that only one key can be used per box no, but they have to be for the right installation. Okay and if you keep getting the invalid key error you are either entering a wrong alpha-numeric character (watch 8's & B's they tend to blend together) or you are using the wrong install media. And as for the Service Packs a code for sp1 will work for sp2 & sp3 and visa versa. There are many different was around the stupid windows key crap legally! If you need help PM me and I will be happy to tell you anything I can. And for anyone who does not know if your install takes the key but when you activate over net it say invalid, use the activate by phone option, only use the automated and always say yes major repair and no change of M/B. Thanks
