I am new to the forum and have not (yet) used Blag. I would like to install an entirely free operating system on my two laptops - both are Lenovos. One is an R61i and the other is a 3000 N100. I installed gNewsense on them at one point and I liked it except I could never seem to find free wireless drivers that worked with them. So I installed the Quasi-Free Ubuntu system and they work great. But I would love to get them working on an entirely free system. Are there free drivers that would work with BLAG?
Thanks for the link and the info. I am sorry to hear that. I might have to make due with a quasi-free operating system on my laptop until I can get a new one. I do love the BLAG concept though.

Chuuuuut! But the wifi of my laptop uses a non-free firmware. Next time I'll buy a new one I'll take one which I know working with all free software.

so you are saying I might be able to find compatable proprietary drivers that would work with BLAG? Such as perhaps drivers designed for Red Hat Enterprise Linux? I will take a look.

I can't encourage you to do such a thing. But If you want absolutely to run blag and don't want to change your wireless card, this is a solution. Take a look on Fedora forum.
Another thing; there is a topic "non-free" on this forum to speak about these things.
