Issues with lsusb and wifi dongle

Tue Jan 20, 2015 12:33 pm

Hey, tried to setup a generic wifi dongle with the rtl8188cus chipset. I did an apt-get update beforehand but when I try to execute lsusb it gives me an illegal instruction error, does anyone know what might be the cause of this and what I can do to fix it?
Thanks.

New SD card, reimage and start again.

The OP probably added the DebIan respositories in error and got some of that stuff installed.

Ok, I'll do that before I format my card and after, if it still does not work.
