Hello I want to help ubuntu budgie with 18.10 testing ;)


#24

@fossfreedom I use broadcom drivers - so I have only to acivate them in hardware drivers? It is not necessary to download the drivers?


#25

Correct. Only need to activate them in hardware drivers. Broadcom are not free… so activating then compiles the source automatically and adds to the kernel.


#26

@fossfreedom thx for the fast answer :slight_smile:


#27

Okay, I’ll attempt to update/check the broadcomm driver, now that you mention it, I can see it, digging through my own install. I bet it’s not a regression, merely an oversight on my part. - thanks David


#28

btw would you recommen installing the beta 18.10 on the normal partition and replacing the version 18.04? Or should I install the beta version on a seperate partition?


#29

From a helping to test point of view I would suggest a separate partition or ideally on a separate piece of hardware. In that way you can safely test and if things doesn’t work out you have a stable fall back.


#30

Okay allright. So, I can work on problems or try to fix them. :wink: That’s true that a stable version is important.


#31

It worked! We plugged the ethernet in and within a few minutes it applied the broadcomm driver, then we were off to the races. Thanks David :blush:
