View Full Version : Add b43 to startup
27th May 2009, 03:31 PM
I'm getting sick of typing modprobe b43 every time I restart the machine. In the network manager, I've check the box to have wlan0 start on boot up, but it doesn't. How does one either add wlan0 to startup (a different way???) or have modprobe b43 run on startup?

There are better ways (this also doesn't explain why the module isn't loaded in the first place) but running the following is simple and should get things working:
su -c 'echo "modprobe b43" >> /etc/rc.local'
All it does is add your command to the end of the system initialization scripts.
