This is not an easy work for me.
- Firstly, I download the Ubuntu 10.10 alternative CD ISO.
- Then, following upgrade using the shell script by following this article.
No wireless device detected, cannot connect internet through WiFi. What the X?! I used this method before by upgrading from 9.10 to 10.4, but this time fail.
- Then use the broadband connect to the internet
- System > Administration > Additional Drivers
- Download and update certain things, I don’t know what are they
- Found “Broadcom STA wireless driver”
- Failed! Ask me to check /var/log/jockey.log
Then I think I need to update everything, so I run System > Administration > Update Manager. Then I asked for “Partial Upgrade”, and needs to download about 200Mb data. Not the good solution. Search solution online. Then I found this.
- sudo apt-get update
- Then I am asked to insert Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick
- So, I mount the alternative CD iso again
- Luckily it works
- sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source
Yeah! Successfully upgraded, and can use the wireless device. But if go to Update Manager, I still need to download 200Mb for the Partial Upgrade. Not good, not good!
