USB Wireless Drivers with Longsleep Linux Kernel

Unless you have a very close relationship with your current linux-installation, you might want to consider reimaging the microsd-card with a current debian build and use the scripts in /usr/local/sbin to update uboot and kernel first, enlarge sd-card and then do a 'sudo apt-get update' before you install linux-firmware package.

It takes about an hour if you have a decent broadband connection (mine is 30/10 and it took 50 minutes).

Thanks Zalo. I might just do that. Sorry if this is a silly question, is the Debian distro headless or does it have the GUI? I like the headless distros and was hoping to stay with that.
