Posted by: Ivan2116 Jul 13 2012, 09:12 AM

I have the problem whit installation of the driver for wireless adapter. I assume it is something simple, but I am new to Linux. Here is the text from the terminal:
It is just last two lines for which I don't know why I get "permission denied" if I am logged in as root.
