Debian Configuration :: Wheezy Radeon / Intel Graphics Switcheroo?

Apr 16, 2011

I have an Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG. I'm running Wheezy and I can't seem to get switcheroo working correctly. I was running Squeeze, then upgraded to Wheezy because it had a kernel over 2.6.33 with switcheroo built in. Below is the layout of my build...

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze: Suspend/hibernate Resume Fails With Radeon Graphics

Aug 6, 2010

I am running Squeeze on an older Compaq EVO laptop with radeon graphics.

A few months ago, after an upgrade, suspend and hibernate stopped working. The suspend or hibernate worked fine, but the resume just hung with a black screen. I finally got around to looking into it and found a workaround.

The workaround is to disable Kernel Mode Setting for the radeon. This can be done by adding the boot parameter "radeon.modeset=0" or by editing /etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf so that it includes the line "options radeon modeset=0".

If you are interested in the details, you can search for problem reports related to radeon kernel mode setting.

Debian Configuration :: Graphics:No 3D. Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960?

Mar 1, 2010

I have a fairly new laptop, 2*1.8 Ghz, but when I try to run games more advanced than pac-man, it's about 1-0.5 frames / second. This doesn't seem right. I've goggled it, and found a few posts from 2008-2009, but nothing that actually helped. Does anyone have any idea, as to what might be wrong? If anyone has this card, I'd like to see what you have in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file...

Ubuntu :: Switch Graphics Adapter(ATI Mobility Radeon 5450-> Intel GMA) In 10.10?

Oct 19, 2010

Installed Ubuntu 10.10 on fresh HP dm4-1050so laptop and encountered problems, this is one of them. Noticed that ATI card is heating heavely with default installation and I would like disable it and switch to use Intel's GMA. Also tested ATI proprietary fglrx driver through Administration->Additional Drivers, after booting got empty screen so I switched back. Afterwards read from documentation that 5450 is not supported, so no wonder. So what is the simplest way of disabling ATI and using only Intel's gma? Here's what I got with lspci -v:

Code:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

Debian :: Radeon Driver And By Consequence Gdm3 In Wheezy?

May 21, 2011

I want to use the open source radeon driver. My video card is AMD/ATI RADEON HD4850. I want 3D acceleration even if it's inferior to fglrx's although I would like if it exceeded fglrx's performance but the performance of the driver is not the point of this thread. Fortunately, fsck was checking the hard drive upon booting so I had time to write the boot output in this computer which I believe would be of help.

Video card:
Failed to load firmware "radeon/RV770_pfp.bin"
*ERROR* Failed to load firmware!
disabling GPU acceleration

gdm3: rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Error - Failed to request firmware. I attempted to install firmware-linux and do sudo gdm3 but all that did is say gdm3 lasted for 0.x seconds where x changes and it kept re-printing that sentence infinitely. I also rebooted and tried to let gdm3 start itself.

Firstly, I'm assuming the open source driver relies on proprietary firmware. Why is this the case? Secondly, how do I get the radeon/RV770_pfp.bin firmware? Is it not in the firmware-linux package? Why does it matter that GPU acceleration is disabled for loading gdm3? Isn't simple 2D enough? (I'm not saying this because I don't want to have 3D enabled since I do want it enabled but because I would imagine that 2D capabilities are enough to load gdm3). If more information is needed, just ask.

Debian Hardware :: ATI Radeon HD 3200 HDMI Audio On Wheezy

May 6, 2014

I recently switched over one of my Ubuntu machines to Debian Wheezy. On the Ubuntu system I was able to get the HDMI audio working by adding radeon.audio=1 to grub. I've tried this on this system to no avail. The fglrx-legacy-driver causes underscan and I'd like to avoid it if possible for convenience.

Things I've tried:

fglrx-legacy-driver - Introduced underscan while not solving the problemradeon.audio=1 in grub boot line - No effectGoogling for several hours - There's a lot of topics about this, but most are old and irrelevant, and the ones that are current enough didn't solve my issue.Yelling at it - HDD light blinked a few times, no change

Debian Multimedia :: Radeon Stopped Detecting Proper Resolution In Testing-Wheezy?

Apr 19, 2011

I have a LMDE (Mint Linux Edition based on testing, now Wheezy) i386 that I just did a dist-upgrade on and now it isn't properly detecting my monitor resolution. I have two 1680x1050 monitors, one attached to the DVI and another to a VGA video switch. When I rebooted to the new 2.6.38-2-686 kernel both monitors were giving me 1024x768. I futzed around for a while and could then get the the DVI monitor to correctly identify the proper resolution, but the VGA monitor resolutely refused to see more than 1024x768.

I was able to get the proper resolution by entering these commands:

[Code]...

Should I file a bug report, and if so, with whom? I have to say, the Debian bug report process is not too newbie (or even not-so-newbie) friendly, but I'd like to help if it doesn't require me to hand-configure a MUA.

Also, I suppose I shouldn't mention it in a single post, but my mouse is behaving rather unpredictably now (click speed, selecting), and trying to reboot dismounts the file system and then starts up again giving me my display manager (in my case KDM), without restarting the system (both from "sudo reboot" and trying to restart with KDM or the Gnome widget). If I really want to restart the system I have to halt it first and hit the power button.

Debian Hardware :: Serial Port I/O Error On Intel NUC With Wheezy

Mar 23, 2015

I have a problem getting Serial Port working on INTEL NUC DE3815TYBE. I have Debian Wheezy installed with kernel 3.16.0-0.bpo.4-amd64.

When I do :

Code: Select allsetserial -g /dev/ttyS*

I get:

Code: Select all/dev/ttyS0, UART: 16550A, Port: 0x03f8, IRQ: 4
/dev/ttyS1, UART: 16550A, Port: 0x0000, IRQ: 19
/dev/ttyS2, UART: 16550A, Port: 0x0000, IRQ: 19
/dev/ttyS3, UART: unknown, Port: 0x02e8, IRQ: 3

I can connect to ttyS0 - ttyS2 without any problem but ttyS3 is not working and I am getting this error:

I call command:

Code: Select allstty -F /dev/ttyS3 9600 cs8 cread clocal

I get:

Code: Select allstty: /dev/ttyS3: Input/output error

I am running the commands as ROOT. I also tried: setserial /dev/ttyS3 irq 3 uart 16550A skip_test but I am getting the same stty: /dev/ttyS3: Input/output error

Output of:

Code: Select alldmesg | grep tty

Code: Select all[    0.000000] console [tty0] enabled
[    0.952559] serial8250: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A

[  27.740208] ttyS2 - failed to request DMA

[Code] .....

lsof /dev/ttyS3 doesn't return anything so it means there is nothing connected to ttyS3 I guess but I am not very skilled with linux so I might be mistaken

Why I can see 4 ttyS* in my Linux but physically I have only 2 physical Serial Ports on the board?

Debian Installation :: Wheezy On Newer Intel I210 Ethernet Controller?

Jul 31, 2013

I just bought a new server with one of the most recent v3 Intel processors (socket LGA1150). The board (Supermicro X10SLM-F) uses the new Intel NICs (i217LM + i210AT), not supported by the current Debian stable release. Hence, the ethernet adapter is not recognized during the installation process.

I would like to be able to install something as close to stable as possible in a production server such as this one.

Debian Hardware :: Ethernet Card Intel I217-LM Not Recognized By Wheezy

Mar 7, 2014

I tried to install the latest stable version of Debian (download yesterday : Debian Wheezy 7.4.0) on my new computer Fujitsu Celsius W530.The version installed is exactly this one (given by the commande "uname -a") :

PCNAME 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.54-2 x86_64 GNU/Linux
=> A Debian Wheezy 64 bit

I have a problem with the Intel ethernet card : I217-LM (the model was verified on the Fujitsu specifications and also on the Windows 8 I use on another partition).During the install procedure, Debian did not find the ethernet card.I continued the install without it and after I tried to make it found.I got a Linux driver in the Intel Web Site but I saw after that Debian loaded yet this driver (e1000e), so I did not install the driver from Intel (I needed to get linux-headers and to compil the files).

So when I force the system to load the driver, it gives no error but the device is still not found when I try to bringup the network interface.URL...

- understand why I see the Device (with "lspci" command) and the module "e1000e" (I tried also the "e1000" one) loaded with "lsmod" command ?
- make the card work to allow my debian for connecting to internet ?

Here some commands which can show you the problem :
Code: Select all~# lsmod | grep e1000
e1000e                120822  0
root@PC-DEV-JB-debian:~# ll /lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/intel/e1000e/e1000e.ko

Debian Configuration :: Kernel 2.6.38 In Wheezy?

Apr 11, 2011

This is Wheezy x86_64. I tried two different ways to install kernel 2.6.38 on my machine and both have failed. First thing I did was to follow this guide [URL]... el-26.html) and try to compile the latest stable from kernel.org. I don't know why, but it turns into kernel panic when I try to run it. Second thing I did was to install the liquorix 2.6.38, and that also fails, seeming to boot but hanging a second short from the login. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Is there a special way to install kernels in Debian? This is the first time I tried compiling a kernel, so it's quite likely that the problem is sitting 6 inches from the computer screen. Also, how would I remove those kernels since they're obviously not working? I know I could remove them from the grub menu but I'm not sure how to completely delete them.

Debian Configuration :: Migration To Bind 9.10 In Wheezy 7.1

I want to migrate to bind 9.10 in debian wheezy. I don't want to take the source code from debian Sid since its an experimental version. So I have taken source code from official bind forum and compiled in debian wheezy. The compilation is successful but I am having problem in running the binary in debian wheezy. It's not honoring the binary even though I run it. I am not getting error messages on console but still it is not running.

I want to know whether its feasible to do this Or is it dependent on any other system libraries to make it run ?

Debian Hardware :: ATI R7 Graphics Card - Open Source Radeon Or Fglrx Catalyst?

Jul 11, 2014

I've set up this new PC, the graphic card I picked is the ATI R7 260X, pretty good card with lots of core processors, high clock and 2GB memory. I'm now currently using the 14.4 catalyst drive, it works actually alright, though, there are some mishaps with this driver:

First my hdmi screen had scale down, leaving black borders around, even though the catalyst control said the correct native resolution, this turned out to be a underscan that fglrx does and I've finally managed to fix it. Other caveat is that the screen simply won't suspend or turn off( via software), DPMS actually works, forcing it turns the screen blank for some seconds but something does not allow the screen to sleep.

Performance wise it seems pretty good though, everything is pretty smooth, being able to play games maxed out on resolution and ultra settings, though, I still haven't tested out that many games.

The open-source radeon on the other hand, well its open-source, fully xorg and linux compatible, which is a major plus point. It seem it has come a long way, supporting lot of features and providing better performance in some cases.

Before installing Catalyst I had issues with mesa and steam, steam would complain about not finding the 32bit libraries, this is however a steam runtime issue, maybe it could already be fixed.

Debian Configuration :: High CPU Temp Wheezy X200

May 10, 2015

I am noticing some rather high CPU temps while using Debian 7.8 KDE on a Lenovo X200 laptop.

Even when its not doing anything its getting as high as 70C sometimes. I opened it up and went in with a can of compressed air, it went down a little to 36C now its back to 70c the day after.

Then I realised the fan was hardly spinning is there any way I can control how much (or little) the fan spins at certain temps?

My guesses are it could be done with a bash / shell script in the kernal loaded at booting up. But am unsure.

Here is my dmesg [URL] ....

Debian Installation :: Radeon Graphics Chip - Jessie Requires Firmware-linux-nonfree

May 11, 2015

If you have a Radeon graphics chip and upgrade to Jessie, install firmware-linux-nonfree, before rebooting.

My dist-upgrade to Jessie seemed flawless until I rebooted and couldn't get into X.

Seems Jessie boots into Gnome by default, but Gnome now requires 3-D acceleration. For my Radeon graphics chip (ATI Radeon 3100), this requires firmware-linux-nonfree, which I didn't need before and was not installed as part of the upgrade.

A boot message alerted me to this need.

I was able to get X going with xinit. I used FVWM; for XFCE I believe the command is:

xinit /usr/bin/xfce4-session -- :1

and from there I installed the package firmware-linux-nonfree.

Debian Configuration :: Wheezy - Detect Printer On One WiFi Network But Not Other

Sep 21, 2015

I use a 'wifi hotspot' provided by my mobile (android) phone for internet/email and to connect to my wifi capable HP p1102w printer. Installation and use of the printer worked perfectly until I bought a new phone, again android with 'wifi hotspot' capability. The wifi connection on my new phone works fine for internet and email but it totally fails to detect my printer.

I have tried to detect and connect to the printer using system-config-printer and using the HP utility hp-setup. Both fail to detect the printer on the 'new' wifi network.

The old network connection which detects the printer as expected gives the following output:

Code: Select allpat@debian:~$ ifconfig

Debian Configuration :: Wheezy Xfce 4.8 VERY SLOW First Thunar Startup

May 16, 2011

I upgraded my main PC's Xfce 4.6 to Xfce 4.8 this morning.Now, every time I start Thunar for the first time after a new boot, it takes about 30 seconds to appear, and then about 10 seconds later, a second instance of it appears.After that, Thunar appears instantly every time I start it during that same session. But if I shut-down or restart my PC, Thunar again takes about 30 seconds to start up, and a second instance of it appears about 10 seconds later.

Google searches seem to indicate that people running other distros are also experiencing this problem. On advice in a different forum, I deleted the ~/.config/Thunar folder and restarted my PC, but that didn't help -- it created a new Thunar folder, but the long delay and the double-Thunars are still there every time I run Thunar for the first time in a session.
