First day of linux. (Trying to learn.)
Install was smooth, took 5 min of my time following directions. OS is beautiful and quick.
elementary OS 6 Odin
Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS
No internet. 5 hours of troubleshooting. no luck.
(built-in ethernet) Intel I219-V
(USB wifi adapter brand new) TP-Link TL WN823N RTL8192EU
(USB wifi adapter old) NetGear A6100 AC600 [Realtek RTL8811AU]
- Downloaded drivers from another computer and transferred with USB.
---> 2. Cannot use "make" command to install them.
------> 3. Tried to download make pkg and transfer with USB.
---------> 4. Cannot install "make" without using "dkms" command.
------------> 5. Cannot instal dkms pkg without an overwhelming number of dependencies...
Do other people run into these kinds of issues?
It seems like no driver and no common command is pre-installed.
(Nor are they easy to deliver to a machine with no internet access...)
I guess to some people there is a benefit to the barebones approach?
What do I do though? Thank you for any advice, I'm trying to learn.
