Ipw2200 needs updating
There is a massive installed base of PC and Mac hardware out there, which can run x86 Debian just fine.
Could we do something for the owners of those machines?
My kernel is 2.6.8-gentoo-r1, but according to the project site, it should work with all 2.6 kernels Note that they drivers may fail to load the firmware correctly if you have loaded the ndiswrapper module and the windows drivers since you last rebooted.
Make sure that ndiswrapper is not set to autoload (comment it out in /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6, run modules-update and reboot if it is loading automatically at boot).
So, after three months of hard work from Simon and Serge, we have a Christmas treat for you: an experimental version of Debian PIXEL for x86 platforms.
Simply download the image, burn it onto a DVD or flash it onto a USB stick, and boot straight into the familiar PIXEL desktop environment on your PC or Mac.
In future releases, we may create an installer so it can be permanently installed on your computer’s hard drive, but for now this is can only be temporarily booted for trial purposes.
We are aware of an issue on some modern Macs (including, annoyingly, mine – but not Liz’s), where the machine fails to identify the image as bootable.
You’ll find all the applications you’re used to, with the exception of Minecraft and Wolfram Mathematica (we don’t have a licence to put those on any machine that’s not a Raspberry Pi).
I just got version 0.5 and 0.7 of the Intel native linux drivers ( to work with my Vaio.
I have 128 bit WEP working, can associate to my 802.11b access point and have done an emerge -u Df world over the connection (including downloading the 220 MB of OOo source code).
In support of this, and in parallel with our hardware development efforts, we’ve made substantial investments in our software stack.
These culminated in the launch of PIXEL in September 2016.
