Debian :: Accessing / Mounting A SD Card On Squeeze?

Feb 27, 2011

I've tried to search online but I can't find anything that works on our netbook. The netbook has a default Squeeze installation. After inserting the microSD card (via a "microSD card adapter" into the built-in slot), when I double-click on "Computer" on the Gnome desktop, it shows "Multiple Card Reader", but I can't access it. fdisk -l doesn't show any new devices, but dmesg does show the following:

[ 2532.101119] usb 1-5: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 8
[ 2542.344135] usb 1-5: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 8
[ 2558.588138] usb 1-5: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 8
[ 2558.836073] usb 1-5: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 8


I can't mount /dev/sdb or mount /dev/sdb1 (fdisk only shows "sda1-3"). The system simply reports that "special device sdb does not exist", although during one attempt I did get a message saying "block device sdb (or sdb1) something...".

It's imperative that I can access this microSD card. It will be put into my mobile phone so I can have the Star Trek: The Next Generation theme tune as the ringtone. I'm sure you all - as will all of humanity - realise the importance of this endeavour

Debian Hardware :: Accessing A Blackberry In Squeeze?

Jul 4, 2011

I have a blackberry bold and I am running squeeze with gnome. I want to be able to pull files off the bb via usb. When I connect the bb to my computer, the bb asks me to key in my password. Also, Under Places -> Computer, I can see an icon for the blackberry.

However, when I double click on the blackberry icon it does not open. Running "mount /dev/sda1" from the shell, I get "mount: mount point /media/sda1 does not exist".

Debian :: Lenny Or Squeeze With Ati Card

Mar 31, 2010

I have Ati HD 4890 card and I need to get it working with game and 3d-software. Which Debian should I choose to get those ati proprietary drivers to work as stable and easily? Can I get them working all the time with Squeeze/Unstable or should I use Lenny for that? If they work with all of them, I'd like to take Squeeze (or is unstable as stable? name doesn't say that at least). So which one I should choose? Can a newbie get fglrx to work on Squeeze?

Debian Configuration :: No Wireless In Squeeze With Broadcom Card

Oct 30, 2010

I just installed fresh Squeeze to my new hpmini 210-1100 netbook. No wireless. I have checked and I have Network Manager installed already.

I also compiled and installed Broadcom driver from here[url]

I followed their instructions and compiled the driver. I did get a wl.ko driver and installed it insmod wl.ko after modprobe lib80211

I noticed after rebooting neither wl.ko nor lib80211 showed when i did lsmod. So I did modprobe and insmod again. Still no wireless. Here are output of some commands that I thought would be relevant.


I see only 2 computer icon in the system tray but not the parallel bars. When I went to System>Administration>Network, I was not able to add my wireless network name. The Add button was grayed out.

Debian Multimedia :: Audigy Card Recognition On Squeeze?

Jul 6, 2010

I have currently gotten my onboard sound working after some tousling and trial (Intel ICH5), but my beloved Audigy remains without breath. I've been around on the KDE forums thinking that it had to do with Phonon after it permanently forgot my sound cards (a feature which enables permanent sound removal too easily, in my opinion), and the admin pointed me toward my distro's forums.

Here's some info:


with some meaningful output, but, after a reboot, still no sound with speakers plugged into the Audigy.

2nd NOTE: I have just found this:


The driver in use is NOT the emu10k1 driver, which I believe should be the one according to the alsa soundcard matrix. How do I load the proper driver upon boot?

Debian Hardware :: Sound Card / Mic Records - Squeeze

May 9, 2011

I ,unlike some others, have sound. Videos and music (..... ,online adds ect) work fine as do cd's in the cd rom. My mic on the other hand sounds like a cat being killed while someone is blowing on the mic while scratching fingernails on cut glass!! sense i have good sound i can assume the sound card is ok, but im at a loss as to why the mic records so badly. its a built in mic on my toshiba laptop (two months old). sound was great from it on windows 7 so must be a driver?

Toshiba L645D ,AMD 64 duel core, 3 G ram, Linux Debian Squeeze 2.6.32-5-686. EDIT: ok i can set the mic (Genome>volume controls> Recording>Digital) and the sound on the mic is great. but if i close the window and look again, its reset to mute. how do i lock in the settings??

Debian Hardware :: How To Get Squeeze To Recognize Sound Card Again

Aug 27, 2011

I've been using Debian 6 on my HP G62-a18SA laptop since March this year. Post installation I was getting sound through the headphones but not through the speakers. To rectify this I followed the instructions at and installed the Realtek HD Audio Codec Driver, cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec having revealed that the audio codec was a Realtek ID 270. This gave me sound through both headphones and speakers. A couple of days ago (after not using the laptop for several weeks), I was surprised to find that I had no sound at all, nothing from the speakers and nothing from the headphones. I have done some googling and here are the outputs from several commands I came across, from which it would appear that Debian has now "lost" my soundcard:

marrea@debian:~$ lspci | grep -i audio
00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) (rev 40)
01:05.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc RS880 Audio Device [Radeon HD 4200]
marrea@debian:~$ cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec
cat: /proc/asound/card0/codec#*: No such file or directory
alsactl init
alsactl: init:1743: No soundcards found.....
Unfortunately I am pretty clueless where Linux sound is concerned and was wondering as to how I can get Debian to "find" my soundcard again.

Hardware :: Sound Card Compatible With Debian Squeeze

Jan 2, 2010

My old sound card just broke and I am planning of buying a new one, a 5.1. I was wondering what sound card would you recommend for debian squeeze not more than 40 euros. I was thinking of this HERCULES MUSE 5.1 that is about 35 euros is that complatible with debian/linux? I want that one because creative is to expensive and this one is 5.1 for videogames, DVD and available to put 6 speakers.

Debian Hardware :: Linksys WMP300N PCI Card Supported In Squeeze?

Nov 29, 2010

How well is the Linksys WMP300N PCI card supported in Squeeze? I have read that the US versions have Broadcom chipsets and others use Atheros chipsets. Mine is US as far as I can tell. The FCC ID is Q87-WMP300N. It is a PCI card. That's all I can tell you since the board has a metal cover over all the chips.

Debian Hardware :: Graphics Card On EMac Running Squeeze

Apr 27, 2011

I installed the powerpc version of Debian Squeeze 6.0.1a on an eMac. According to the Wikipedia article, these systems had an nVidia geforce2 MX graphics card, and the system is using the Debian open nVidia drivers from install. I've gotten everything working on it, except the graphics are off. It's acting like either it can't handle the resolution or all the colors and looks a little like it wants to run in 256 colors. It's not unusable, just annoying. I know that it can handle a normal resolution because it was doing fine under Mac OS X puma before I wiped it and installed debian (I put debian on it because I needed a modern web browser, and the ones available under that version of Mac OS X weren't doing the job). I went to the nVidia website, but they only have the driver for x86 Linux. I need it for the G4 powerpc. Any ideas? I'm used to running Ubuntu on x86 machines, so the powerpc thing is throwing me a bit.

Hardware :: Get My Behringer UCA202 USB Sound Card Working On Debian Squeeze?

Jul 9, 2010

I am trying to get my Behringer UCA202 USB sound card working on Debian Squeeze. Under lenny I can get the card working perfectly using modprobe snd-usb-audio then alsaconf. On squeeze however, I did the same thing and followed the debian wiki instructions, but while I can view the card to pull up in alsamixer no sound will play and under "item" both dB gains are stuck on 0.0 despite the channels being unmuted and the volume being up.


[EDIT]: I solved this problem by changing the line in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf "options snd-usb-audio index=-2" to index=1. I am not sure why that made it work though since I thought that line only changed the priority of using the card.

Debian Hardware :: Radeon X1050 - Is This Card Supported In Squeeze By Either The Non-free Firmware Or The Proprietary Driver

Jan 13, 2011

Is this card supported in Squeeze by either the non-free firmware or the proprietary driver? I just got one to stick into an older box that will be going to a college girl that wants the 3D desktop in KDE. The built-in video was a joke and wouldn't even work without compositing. It was one of those crappy, non-standard pieces of crap known as a "Unichrome" (not the pro).

General :: Remotely Accessing A Mounted SD Card?

Jul 1, 2011

The why behind this is a little long winded so let me get to the technical question. I have a 16 GB SD card in my netbook as additional storage to the 16 GB SSD drive. The SD card is formatted fat32 (by a utility from which is supposed to and does make the card read and write faster than if it was formatted by the OS). The card mounts when I login to the netbook. The entry from mtab shows


/dev/sdb1 /media/SD16 vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks,uid=1000,gid=1000,shortname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1,flush 0 0

If I look at the permissions on SD16 I find


ken@taylor13:/media$ ls -l
drwx------ 3 ken ken 32768 1969-12-31 19:00 SD16

sudo chmod 777 SD16 does not change the permissions.

The problem is I need to connect to the machine with a different user (due to a security hole in gnome-commander). As the card is formatted fat I cannot assign group permissions to it and my second user cannot access it.

I had previously had the card formatted as ext3 and it was so slow as to be unusable. It needs to be formatted fat. I am stumped.

I am noticing problems accessing the firewall gui and mounting the second hard drive in my PC running Fedora 13. This is only when I am accessing the machine with VNC. If I am sitting in front of the physical machine, I have no problems at all. I would like VNC to behave more like I am sitting in front of the computer. Is there a way to do this?

I've never had that message returned from mount, and I can't find any reference to it.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Mounting A 16GB SDHC Card On 11.3 Laptop ?

Jan 5, 2011

I have an HPDV7 running 11.3.

I have a new 16GB SDHC memory card.

It is formatted FAT-32 LBA

When I plug the the card into the DV7's internal MMC/SD card slot, it automounts as /dev/mmcbkl0p1.

I can then access files (camera images) on the card with Dolphin, etc.

When I plug the card into an external card reader(USB interface), automount fails and I can see a long string of messages from dmesg. It is attempting to mount it as /dev/sdd, I see numerous I/O errors as it attempts to read various sectors.

The card reader is a Kingston FCR-HS219/1.

The 16GB SDHC card in the Kingston card reader combo works on my WinXP machine, so (apparently) the combo does work.

A 2GB SD card (FAT16) in the Kingston reader works on both WinXP and the HPDV7 11.3 laptop.

Debian Configuration :: Phpmyadmin Accessing Mysql On Debian Webserver?

Feb 9, 2011

I have installed debian on my laptop and included during the installation the webserver version. Now I want to develop a page locally to test it before I put it on the web. I first had an old reflex, jumping straight away and installing xampp. But then I thought that I already all that it takes as I installed the webserver feature of debian. I installed phpmyadmin ( with the command #apt-get install phpmyadmin) as to be able to create and attribute databases but when I try to log in I have the following message:

#2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured)"

I googled but I cannot find the mysql.conf (I searched using "find") but with no result. It is all very blury what is going on with this webserver option running on my laptop...
