Fallout 4 Bug: The Nuclear Option

Fallout 4 is amazing.

Fallout 4 is just .... awesome!

Still, a game with such a huge repertoire of possibilities has some bugs. This post is for all the tormented souls who face the Bug in the main quest "The Nuclear Option"

WARNING: Spoiler ahead! Don't proceed, if you do not really need help

I'm talking about this glitch in the game: After having placed the thermonuclear warhead in the reactor of the Institute, you are supposed to get teleported back to Proctor Ingram, together with Maxon. Unfortunately, the teleportation brings me back to the surface, while the other key-NPC stay in the teleportation room of the Institute.
A hint for a unlucky second teleport would be, that the game loads for a while, comes back and immediately loads a second time, bringing me back to the surface.

A walk-around is the following console command

moveto mq302bos

That brings you to Proctor Ingram and you can continue the quest.

Found in the Steam Community. Thanks!


Solution for the broken r8169 driver in Ubuntu

I had troubles with the Ubuntu r8169 driver and my Realtek RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller for a long time.

Finally it semms that I found a solution for a stable ethernet connections: The new r8168 driver (Version 8.031.00 - found here on Google Code) seems to work quite good out of the box.

Just extract it, and run (as root) autorun.sh via

Of course, you have to do this after a kernel update once again.
Don't forget this - It frakked me one time!

Thats all 🙂

Seems to do it's work quite good
