This guide is adapted from Kazalku’s guide on remote exploit forums. Thanks Kazalku.

Download this driver and transfer it with a USB or boot up into another OS on your multiboot and save it in the BT root folder from here.

Untar it:

tar -xvzf hybrid-portsrc-x86_32-v5_10_91_9-3.tar.gz

make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`

Insert the modules:
modprobe ieee80211_crypt_tkip
insmod wl.ko

Now you should have the network Claimed. you can check by:
lshw -C network

Bring it up:
ifconfig eth1 up

To load the module upon boot:

cp wl.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/net/wireless
depmod -a
modprobe wl

Load the module at every startup:
kate /etc/modules

add the following and close the text editor:

Load NetworkManager and Configure KnetworkManager:
Type NetworkManager in a konsole and configure the wireless at the bottom right.

Delete the files you created in the root folder now that you dont need them.

Loud beeps from speaker in Lenovo S10

Posted in Lenovo S10, Linux (Ubuntu) with tags , , , , on September 14, 2009 by HydTech

The lenovo S series netbooks can get pretty annoying with the speaker beeping all the time. To disable the speaker beep while plugging and removing the charger, you can change the setting in the BIOS. If there is no option, you must upgrade the BIOS.

Other annoying beep sound when I shut down my Ubuntu. To get rid of this I blacklisted my pc speaker:

gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

add line
blacklist pcspkr

Save and reboot.
