    Default please help blacklisting the driver. Not saving...

    Hi,

    this is for kde OS 11.2.

    I'm trying to blacklist ath5k and doing as instructed:
    from command line:
    sudo echo >> "blacklist ath5k" /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf

    command executes, but nothing is done to the file. No entry added.

    I tried adding using GUI. Unable to save.

    Please help to add this line to the file. I'm pulling my hair!!!

    Thanks guys

    I haven't tried it, but I am pretty sure that the syntax should be:
    Code:
    sudo echo "blacklist ath5k" >> /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf
    That is, you have the syntax wrong.

    Yes, the above syntax is more correct, but you might need a space before the >>.

    And you now most probably have a file named "blacklist ath5k" in the directory where you was while executing that wong statement. Please try to find and delete it.
    See you how easy it is to damage your system doing things as root when you do not know what you are doing?
