Aditional drivers problem (Solved)
« on: October 10, 2020, 10:05:16 pm »
I have an AMD processor with an integrated GPU.
But when I search for additional drivers. This window pops up.
What is this? Should i get rid of this driver? Then how?



Help me  :)

Hi timehunter, are you having problems with your graphics? The driver indicated appears to be a wifi driver. Are you having problems with your wifi? If you are having problems, could you run the command

Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
in a terminal and copy it back here? We need to know of a problem in order to help you fix it.
What was I thinking?

I made some weird mistakes back when I knew nothing about Linux and had some grahics and connection issues, But those were  fixed by Mark years ago. But this is a fresh install of peppermint OS 10 respin on that same laptop. And I don't have any connection issue now.  I don't know how this driver is still in this laptop.
Here are the result of that command

Hi timehunter,

As Mark would probably have said, "If it's working, don't try to fix it." Since you are not having any connections issues, then I would leave things the way they are and not risk waking a sleeping bear...  ;) :)

That is exactly what I was thinking. But what option should i choose for the above intel driver?
  • Continue using manually installed driver
  • or do not use the device?

Hi rayzor,

might help fix your issue.

The Poster isnt saying he is having an "issue" that needs fixing, He is just confused by the message in "additional drivers".

So in my personal opinion, if he is connecting to the ouside world with no problems, he does not need to do anything here.

All that needs to be done is nothing, just leave it to say "do not use this device".

No problem, No fix. He just needed an answer to avoid confusion so he does not mess up his puter, lol.

Regards,

The Omen

Since you are not having any problems, just close "Software & Updates" and forget about it.
