I have recently been re-purposed a linux unit, that i wish to use as a browser. i want to use a pci rosewill wireless adapter to connect, and use firefox to browse. i have been navigating though the OS and am impressed but hit a password block a few times. i knew how to bypass this pw block in vista/7. this is a decent PC with a pentium e2140 cpu and 2gb ddr2.
the rosewill pci adapter is a rnx-g300e
after googling that adapter, it is a song and dance to get it working with LM
i am now writing from my mint machine using the auto-detected netgear wna1100 usb jobber. downloaded nvidia quadro x86 drivers and about to load up an old quadro while i still feel lucky
i still need help removing the pw though,,,yippee!! I am now in the defenestration club, using firefox with no-script added on
taada. after googling the lm pw subject, i found out how to edit grub and get the pw reset, i think, now i can install my quadro vidcard and enjoy my dual monitors in rich hues. this started out as a project i would pursue when time permitted, but it is definitely refreshing to get past the MS Syndrome.
turns out the pw is integral and needs to be there for admin tasks
