I tried to do a search for a particular topic using the search bar (how to stop listing recently used files) and no matter what I typed, the result is always blank Sad.

I mean checking for the correct firmware - not sure how.

I'm sorry if this information is already out there....but I can't find VL specific instructions on how to configure and install a new kernel.  The one that comes with VL7 doesn't know my wireless usb adapter but the new kernel does.

I've configured kernels under Gentoo - I imagine it's similar?  Also when I make menuconfig under /usr/src/linux I get complaints about Kconfig not being around...

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure how to do that.  Could you point me in the right direction?

well, if you type 'modprove rt3573sta' and nothing happens, then that's a good sign.  you should verify that the module got loaded by using the lsmod command 'lsmod | grep 3573sta'.  Other than the kernel module, you may also need to look into the firmware... make sure your VL installation has the correct firmware for that adaptor.

Maybe starting to answer my own question....if Mint 17 automatically loads the driver then I may see if I can install the latest kernel for VC.  I can't see any how-to instructions online.  I've configured and installed kernels on Gentoo.  Is the procedure similar, or the same?  Thanks.

I've just installed Vector Light 7 (full install) and I cannot get the system to load the driver for my Cisco Linksys AE3000 usb wireless adapter.  I have installed many distributions and none of have shown any problems here.  This link shows how to do it.  All the compile etc commands seem to run fine but when I finally enter "modprobe -v rt3573sta" nothing happens.  In fact the most recent "Mint" loads the driver automatically.  I would appreciate any help.  Thanks!
