(*) Notes and recipes

Graphics acceleration/3D

  • Ubuntu GNU/Linux 8.04 (Hardy Heron) automatically finds and downloads an ATI restricted driver. You only need to open the restricted hardware drivers tool, activate it and reboot.

Compiz desktop effects

  • Works, but system becomes unstable.

Correct audio volume

  • Microphone is so low.

Wireless NIC

  • Ubuntu 8.04: Automatically offered driver doesn't run well.
  • With Synaptic, install the package "build-essential"
  • Check if Ubuntu has already detected and enabled the Atheros drivers that come with repositories, with the tool for restricted hardware drivers (jockey). Disable all elements related with Atheros.

  • Download the last MadWifi package from http://snapshots.madwifi-project.org/madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6/

  • With a Terminal window (console), move (cd) to the directory where have downloaded the new MadWifi package

  • Extract the package (example): sudo tar -xzvf madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6-r4003-20090416.tar.gz

  • Move to the new directory (example): cd madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6-r4003-20090416/

  • Compile: sudo make

  • Install the new specific driver: sudo make install

  • With a Terminal window (console) edit the "/etc/modules" file with the command: sudo gedit /etc/modules

  • Add the following lines at the end if doesn't exist:

ath_hal
wlan
ath_pci
  • Restart the computer.
  • Ubuntu 9.10: Just run this on a terminal:

sudo su
modprobe ath5k
echo "ath5k" >>/etc/modules
exit
