So today was full of fail for the new ubuntu 11.10 upgrade....
first snort failed to upgrade and because it was doign an upgrade i had no wifi to send the report which killed the upgrade.....cunts - that was just hte start of problems.
Eventually I got the thing upgraded and was presented with the five dots screen, then a black screen.....nothing...no matter what i did helped.
mkdir -p /run /run/lock
rm -rf /var/run /var/lock
ln -s /run /var
ln -s /run/lock /var
so that fixed the black screen error.....but now i couldnt log in under gui except as guest which to be honest fucking sucked donkey cock!
sudo rm ~/.Xauthority
go back to your gui (ctrl+alt+7) and login
so now ive fixed that....next problem!!
I have a HP elitebook 8440p which has an intel wifi, it has a nice touch button/indicator above the keyboard to turn the wifi on and off and also as an indicator (orange off/blue on) but since the upgrade it now blinks when wifi data is sent (all the time...and so its fucking annoying) so how to fix this new feature?
echo 'options iwlagn led_mode=1' >> /etc/modprobe.d/wlan.conf
modprobe -r iwlagn && modprobe iwlagn
now im all sorted :)
