hololight Posted November 17, 2010 Share Posted November 17, 2010 So I have used linux for many years, very familiar with many aspects of its use and care, but I guess I have a long way yet to go.... I downloaded the AVG rescue cd (usb) which is based on a linux live cd. I found that the kernel had been compiled with broadcom wireless built-in and it would cause a hang on boot for the netbook I was trying to scan. I want to recompile the kernel but I am unsure of where to start. Now I have compiled many kernels and it is not that part that gives me pause, but AVG doesn't offer any insight into what they based their cd on. Should I just find the matching kernel version sources from kernel.org and use that? Am I looking at breaking lots of things? Maybe this is a simple problem and I'm just looking at it too hard.
