Do I need any drivers?
YES and NO. It depends ..
The need for additional (or alternate) Ubuntu drivers, particularly for WiFi, is a generally related to two underlying causes.
(1.) The device or platform is so new that the chipset or model is as yet unknown to Ubuntu.
This can often be resolved by:
(a.) Waiting a few weeks, for someone else to find and resolve the issue. They will then post a comment or workaround. Often this will simply require a 'blacklist' or settings change, so the new device is not mistaken for a similar (but not identical) device.
(b.) bleeding edge - Going to the (chipset's) manufacturers website, and downloading and compiling a custom driver. While this heroic approach may suit some people, it will often be defeated by the next update, kernel change, or simple be inferior to option (a.) or (c.).
(c.) Waiting a month (or more), from when the device first reaches the market. By this time any changes or exceptions for this platform will be incorporated into updates that Ubuntu will install on first update (after installation). You will still need to work around wireless issues, i.e. connect first by Ethernet cable, to easily and simply resolve this.
(2.) The device or platform is older, little known, or not intended (by vendor) to support Ubuntu.
This can really only be resolved by:
(a.) Finding and visiting websites dedicated to installing Ubuntu on this platform. Example would include: HP TouchPad, (various) gaming platforms, embedded designs (including TV decoders), etc.
(b.) bleeding edge - Going to the (chipset's) manufacturers website, and downloading and compiling a custom driver. And not forgetting that this heroic approach will often be defeated by the next update, kernel change, or something else ..
Try to install Ubuntu, and report back (to this forum) on any issues (or success) with your efforts.
