I am trying to install Ubuntu 14.04 server on a machine via USB. The machine only has a wireless connection and needs the wl driver (proprietary Broadcom STA wireless driver). Without this driver, the network detection process of the installation fails.
On this machine, I can install Ubuntu desktop via USB by booting the USB, running the following commands, then running the installation program.
sudo mkdir /cdrom sudo mount /dev/sdX1 /cdrom sudo dpkg -i /cdrom/pool/main/d/dkms/dkms* sudo dpkg -i /cdrom/pool/restricted/b/bcmwl/bcmwl-kernel-source*
However, there are two problems when I try to install from the Ubuntu 14.04 server USB:
bcmwl-kernel-sourcepackages are not included with the server ISO. This is not a big problem since I can add these to my USB.
- There is no
dpkgprogram in the server installation shell.
How can I get my server installation media to have the additional kernel module
