  1. Linux on HP Omnibook 6000

    Hello All

    I recently installed Knoppix 4.0 on my Laptop. HP Omnibook 6000
    Intel Celeron 800
    256 mb RAM

    For some reason it didn?t detect the onboard soundcard and the D-Link G-
    650+ WLAN card. Trying to enable and restart the soundserver (autodetect)
    does not work. Since I am a Linux-noob maybe someone can lead me through
    the (manual) installation process step by step, so I can get the soundcard
    and the WLAN to work?

    Thanks in advance

    Bye

    What does the output of "lspci" as root say?

    Your wireless card needs ndiswrapper to work.
    http://www.ndeepak.info/tech/dlink_g650_wireless_linux has some info, but
    check with your Knoppix docs. Ubuntu/Kubuntu may be a better choice.
