    Hi

    I have an Asus notebook A6K-Q015H with chipset SIS M760GX + 964L.

    I would like to know what packages-modules I should install in order to completely manage this chipset in Lubuntu 13.10 32-bit.


    Thanks

    Bye

    The SIS chipset is not well supported in Linux. I *think* it was made especially for Windows.

    You might look here:
    http://www.winischhofer.net/linuxsisvga.shtml

    When you say
    what control are you looking for.

    I recently had an SIS laptop, which I gave away. I loaded LXLE on it and it worked quite well. http://lxle.net/

    I do not understand what is the proper procedure to install the premium version of X drivers for my chipset on Lubuntu 13.10 32 bit. Someone could write it?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Drivers are included in the kernel.

    Just download a livecd image, burn it, boot from it and see what happens...

    In order to install on Lubuntu 13.10 all premium drivers described in the winischhofer*net linuxsispart4*shtml/download article, I only follow the instructions of the Debian and Ubuntu paragraph? What are the packages that I should download?
    Thanks

    Bye

    The problem is this:

    From this LXDE screen, I see:

    i58*tinypic*com/2q2k8pf*png

    So, how do I to understand what is that unknown component?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Note: If I install the package kernel-source-bcmwl, the wireless chip does not work and it prevents the Linux reboot. How come?

    I would ignore it unless something doesn't work?

    Is your wireless working?

    The option to use the proprietary WL driver doesn't make sense as I'm pretty sure this chipset is not supported by it:
    Code:
    00:09.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)
     Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. A6U notebook embedded card
     Kernel driver in use: b43-pci-bridge

    In fact, the wireless chip does not work. So, what is the package of Lubuntu 13.10 which contains the right module ensure that my chip is working properly?

    Thanke

    I am not a 'buntu user, but that distro has the same package as Debian to get your device working - I know it works because I have an Asus BCM4318 PCI wifi adapter lying around which I used for years until recently.

    You need to add a repository called "multiverse" - if you don't know how to do this, try reading here:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/CommandLine

    Once you've done that you'll need to do:
    Code:
    # apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-b43-installer
    This should fetch and install the required firmware.

    Unloading and loading the module should then be enough to get things up and running:
    Code:
    # modprobe -r b43 ssb ; modprobe b43
    This should give you a working wlan interface.
