Default ChromeOS with wifi - 02-12-2012, 03:14 PM

Hi,

Has anyone successfully used ChromeOS of any build (Hexxeh's or Dell's) and got wifi to work also? for the Dell Mini 10v?

Thanks.

I downloaded this and got it running yesterday.
linux.dell.com/files/cto/

The trick is you have to plug in the laptop with ethernet first and then run the wifi patch. After that it should work fantastic.

Two ways:
Have you installed already?
If yes, go to the browser (with ethernet connected) and press Ctrl+Alt+T. This should bring you to a Chrome shell (crosh). Then, type shell to bring yourself to a bash shell. From there, type /etc/install_wl.sh Reboot, and voila.
If you did not install/log in yet, press Ctrl+Alt+F2 and type bash. Then, type /etc/install_wl.sh Reboot, and voila (again).

EDIT: Oh yeah, this is for Dell's April build.
