RE: URGENT - v5.0.0 amd64 (stable): Broadcom 4321AG Wi-Fi adapter not detected
As of this moment, I am now thoroughly annoyed, as when I execute the
following as root:
EXCALIBUR:/home/DRIVER# apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
This is the result:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
I tried to find these files in Aptitude, but they were not listed, and then
dpkg -S ndiswrapper
Which I discovered was the CORRECT format, indicated that no packages by
this name were installed on my computer.
So, how do I REALLY fix this issue, and if I need to download another file
from the internet for this, please just send me a URL for it, as I currently
have to work around thru Windows Vista; which is the absolute worst OS I've
ever had to use, and I'd really like to get Linux running properly so I can
forget about it!
