January 18, 2014 Leave a comment

AS always the boredom kicks in and having moved away from Windows 8 on the new ASUS laptop we had a good time with linux mint 15 but its time for something new so lets try and get BOHDI linux installed and tried

619mb download took around 10 mins from there download section

use software manager and grab UNetbootin (install) and make USB version

 

Format your USB drive – us Gparted from the software center (real easy)  does everything you need and as always FREE AWESOME

Wireless drop out with Linux Mint 15 – another fix (solved)

November 6, 2013 Leave a comment

The recent install has gone really well and the replacement of WINDOWS 8 has really made the asus S300 fly except the odd drop out from the wifi or poor signal. so yet another fix required and fast I HATE DROP OUTS.

search the forums they have a few idea’s on the cure HERE

try this cut and paste into terminal (simples)

Open Dash and search for Terminal and open it
wget https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/backports/2013/06/18/backports-20130618.tar.xz
tar xvf backports-20130618.tar.xz
cd backports-20130618
make defconfig-ath9k
make
sudo make install
(insert your password when sudo asks it).
Ready! Reboot the computer

success I’ve gone from 43% signal to 73% 3 from 4 bars on the signal strength (well better than it was)

Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)
