Updating to Intrepid Ibex 8.10 RC on hp nx6325

Posted by lazybit on October 28, 2008

So, a few days before the final release I decided to update my Hardy laptop to Intrepid.

I checked the website and all components seemed to be good for installation.

So after a sudo update-manager -d and about 2 hours later the machine bootet up Intrepid nicely. Xorg did work, even though without accelleration. I had some issues with the older fglrx driver on the machine. After being told that there is porprietary software available I installed the ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver and rebootet. Again, everything went fine, 3d accelleration was now working. The only minor issue was with the bcm4312 card which was not working. The hardware drivers for Broadcom STA wireless did the magic.

For my point of view so far you’re good to go if you own one of the nx6325 series.

Have fun with Intrepid Ibex 🙂

    Hello,

    Updating to Intrepid, I didn’t get encrypted Wireless Networks to work, with neither of the Wireless drivers. However, it finds the networks, they just don’t let it connect to them. I use the 64 bit version.
    Did you encounter the same problem? If yes, how did you solve it? Do you use the 32-bit version?

    Greetz, Turion
