Problema con aggiornamenti ubuntu hardy 8.04

Asked by Kelley Chambers on 2006-01-30

Ciao a tutti,
ho aggiornato da poco il mio ubuntu 7.10 alla versione 8.04 e sembrava essere andato tutto bene....
da qualche giorno però quando cerco di aggiornare il sistema o di installare un qualsiasi altro programma mi da il seguente errore:

E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_hardy_main_binary-i386_Packages
E: La lista dei pacchetti o il file di status non possono essere letti o aperti.

qualcuno sa darmi una soluzione a questo problema?
grazie mille!

Could you please run Terminal, type the following commands, and post the output here:

lspci
cat /etc/iftab
ifconfig -a

Also, any output of 'dmesg' that is related to networking or the broadcom driver.

Are you attempting to use the windows driver with ndiswrapper, or a linux native driver?

I have a very similar system (Turion64, dapper's latest 2.6.15-20-amd64-k8 kernel, broadcom 4318 wlan), and I have exactly the same problem. In addition to the "No such device" message, I have tried the following:
root@jsbach:~# ifconfig -v eth1 up
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
WARNING: at least one error occured. (-1)

After each such command, this message pops up in dmesg:
[ 568.413811] bcm43xx: Error: Microcode "bcm43xx_microcode5.fw" not available or load failed.

lspci says:
0000:05:02.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)

ifconfig -a says:

Any ideas?

I had the same error: 'bcm43xx: Error: Microcode "bcm43xx_microcode5.fw" not available or load failed.'

The broadcom driver needs to load some firmware before the device will work. Fortunately Dapper has a script to get this firmware for you. This worked for me:

sudo aptitude install bcm43xx-fwcutter
sudo /usr/share/bcm43xx-fwcutter/install_bcm43xx_firmware.sh

Jak Spalding (jak-munkees) said : #4

I have the firmware, and I dont get those errors anymore. But it still doesnt work.

dmesg shows:
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth1: link is not ready

Kelley Chambers (krchambers) said : #5

Thank you. Once I get my notebook back from Compaq/HP for repair, I'll do
the firmware upgrade right away.

Thank you for this information. Once my laptop gets back from repair with
HP/Compaq, I'll perform the firmware update. Thanks so much for passing
this on!

I had a fully patched dapper system as of 11May, the wireless didnt work though. Following the advice above bcm43xx-fwcutter, I ran it. It did lots of stuff, but failed loading the .11 item.

After a reboot, I now get a Kernel painc during NetworkManager dispatcher, PCI-DMA: high address but no IOMMU

any way to undo what this script did?

Andy Brook (javahollic) said : #8

Platform is AMD64...

hiptoss (hiptoss) said : #9

Is there any update on this? I too have a laptop (Gateway mx7515) running dapper 64bit. I run into the same problem someone else noted above where even after applying the bcm43xx-fwcutter script, I still get eth0 unavailable. (eth0 is wireless, eth1 is ethernet) I get these errors in dmesg:

ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0 link is not ready
bcm43xx: FATAL ERROR: BCM43xx_IRQ_XMIT_ERROR
bcm43xx: FATAL ERROR: BCM43xx_IRQ_XMIT_ERROR
bcm43xx: FATAL ERROR: BCM43xx_IRQ_XMIT_ERROR
bcm43xx: FATAL ERROR: BCM43xx_IRQ_XMIT_ERROR

I have a Broadcom BCM4318 (AirForce One 54g) card, as shown by lspci. Does anyone have any information on how I could get this working?

Thanks.

Have the same issue. Ran the suggested commands - "Sorry, it is not possible to extract "bcm43xx_micrcodell.fw". Extracting firmware fro an old driver is bad. Choose a more recent one."

I have received a couple of these emails in error, please remove my
email address from this thread/ list

I have the same chip 4318 I tried it with and without Ndiswrapper. I get 54mb with the ndiswraper 1.8 :> I get 11mb without the wrapper. I found a wiki fix but did not get who posted the link and have yet to find it again. they who ever gets the credit. I have the tar ball. you will have to remove the old ndiswrapper and replace it with the ndiswrapper with the 1.8. and replace the networkmanager in the tar ball. When you extract the tarball. You will have go to top panal :System ->preferences :> Sessions :>Startup Programs +Add this nm-applet sm-disable restart o an remove the wired connection.

don (don-durkes) said : #13

could you point me to the tarball?

Bubba Siggler (bud3) said : #14

Sorry don for not getting back to this... I found the old tar ball that worked with Dapper. I also got it to work in Edgy, Just late week I tried it on Feisty and it work. I found it on a cd that I burned, If I can help. I will get in contact with NM to help clean it up some. and go from there.

A3sthetix (a3sthetix) said : #15

Running the startup (if using liveCD) with advanced options helps. I'm a bit of a noob, but this error spawns from IRQ and APCI issues. I have an HP dv6402ca which has the same motherboard as almost all of the dv6000 series laptops. I have performed almost 6 installs of Ubuntu on this laptop, all of which failed because I was trying to get a dual-boot going.

Use this advanced options (press F6) and type them in (you'll be adding them to the current startup command line):
NOAPIC NOAPCI NOLAPIC NOIRQPOLL NOSMP

I'm not sure what every command does. I got the information form: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/hp_dv6000_series_(dv6116eu).

I also notice from this thread this appears to be a problem with HPs and Compaqs mainly running a 64-bit processor.

Original question was changed and relate answers here are no sense now so i reject this question...
