    :haha: No AMD64 is what you need then. I assumed you were running 32 bit like most do. :)

    Thats very odd, it should work once that package is installed (for wireless anyway). Let me check the dependancies when I get a min dude. :)

    Yeah, you probably noticed by now that I have switched to BackTrack 5 instead of Ubuntu. I wouldn't say no to any working Atheros drivers for Ubuntu 10.04 -64-, but BackTrack had the drivers necessary for my Wifi-card -- and part from the occasional 'processor-panic'; Yippee!

    Although as I pretty much just overwrote my Ubuntu-partition(s) with the BackTrack 5 files, I see many funny (and cool) things that most BT users don't. I for instance have all the Ubuntu GUI stuff still activated (cool) and Grub still says that I'm running Ubuntu as a dual-boot (good, because no-one will ever notice that this machine has BT then ;) )

    Do you (or anyone) know what 'flavor' of Linux - BackTrack is based off? I heard it was Debian, but it looks to me like a normal Gnome thingy more related with Ubuntu!

    (I'm such a Linux-noob :facepalm: )
