Just as an update, I decided not to move my KDE folder over. I don't have many files on the system and it's mainly for a backup in a worse case scenario. I used wallpapers from the Configure Your Desktop routine. Probably the best way to do it. Lots of nice wallpapers up there.
Plus, it really doesn't take long at all to set up.
Now, in trying to get the Broadcom card to work, I marked all 3 packages starting with b43 for removal. Now that they are gone, do I need them? Should I re-install?
This Acer Laptop is already a god five yeas old. It has a cracked hinge that I'm holing together with duct tape. Every once in a while, I have to put some new tape on.
But, it works and it's nice to have as a spare.
BTW, should I now avoid purchasing laptops and notebooks if they have Broadcom wireless cards?
