Debian Hardware :: Overclocking Gpu In Squeeze Doesn't Work
Oct 18, 2010
Using coolbits allows for me to try to change it but it refuses to accept it, and even when i run it as root it still just acts like nothing has changed. It's not my laptop maker since i can overclock my gpu using rivatuner on windows so it's clearly not them trying to restrict me. I was attempting to restore teh clocks back to what the factory settings were from nvidia and not the underclocked settings that the oem put on it for the 3d settings and then reducing the 2d by ~10% to help it run cooler except when gaming.Has anyone been able to successfully use coolbits in squeeze? Or is there another nvidia overclockign tool out there besides nvclock since my gpu is apparently too new to work with it and i'm not going to risk it.
After using testing (now Wheezy) for almost a year and breaking my machine (latest nvidia broken packages), I went back to vanilla Squeeze (after updates, now at 6.02).Nothing from outside the stable repos; not even the nvidia driver (kept it at default and nouveau)Repo "deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org stable main non-free" enabled.It seems flash is not working with iceweasel; I either have a message which says "Cannot play media: you do not have the correct version of the flash player. Download the correct version," with a link to Adobe's site, of media appears in broken pieces.In order to keep my system "clean," I haven't downloaded anything from Adobe, and a search on this forum suggested installing flashplugin-nonfree or flashplayer-mozilla. Did both (can't have them at the same time), restarted, no joy.
My net-book is working properly with Debian squeeze 2-6-32-5-686, only the wlan does not work. After typing lsusb I have got the message: lsusb : Bus 002 Device 002 : ID 160a:3184 VIA Technologies, Inc. VIA VNT-6656 [WiFi 802.11b/g USB Dongle]
So I obtained the driver package : VT6656_Linux_src_v1.19_12_x86. I followed the instructions ( make install... ) - but the result is only a lot of error messages. Mayby I am using the wrong driver package for the squeeze kernel - I don't know.
I have installed the Squeeze testing version. i have setup networking for static in the /etc/network/interfaces file. tried to find resolv.conf in the /etc/ since could not find i created this file post trying to start the eth1 i am able to ping my ip, but if try to ping the gateway i get an error saying the ping is not sucessfull. I have 2 network cards, eth0 and eth1. as eth0 does not work i have configured eth1. The dump of the interfaces file is below
The same setup works fine in Ubuntu 10.10 setup that i have.
I have Debian Squeeze x64 on ThinkPad T61p with standard 2.6.32-5-amd64 kernel. thinkpad_acpi loaded as module, suspend to RAM works fine from menu in KDE as well as by closing the lid, however machine doesn't appear to react on pressing Fn+F4 which should put it to sleep as well. I've read through thinkpad_acpi documentation and asked Google but so far can't find the solution. Can anyone, point me in correct direction?
I have installed squeeze and kernel 2.6.32-3 Also I use the USB webcam Asus. A week ago I installed lenny, my webcam didn't work, then I made upgrade to squeeze and my webcam worked! I don't know why Yesterday I have installed the system again, the base system as lenny (net-install) and then squeeze. But webcam doesn't work
My university is checking LAN access through F5 Firepass server. Using amd 64 proc with squeeze and iceweasel 3.5.16 browser with F5 Network access plugin and F5 sam inspection host plugin, I cannot access university servers through the F5 firepass server.
I have a problem with CPU frequency at overclocking.Normally the processor is clocked at 2.7 GHz (13.5x200), Debian detects it correctly. When I overclock it (in the BIOS of course) to 3.3 (11x300), BIOS at booting shows everything correctly.
I just installed squeeze on a raid 1 set of partitions via netinst. gde works fine. I have installed kdm and all of its dependencies (I believe), but when I select it and log in, I see the kde startup screen for a moment, then it goes blank, and goes back to the login screen. My /var/log/kdm.log is:
I have successful installed debian squeeze 32bit on my pc. I like very much The vlc i have installed via software but After install vlc don't start don't appear don't do nothing any one know there is a problem with Vlc On squeeze?
I've installed Lenny with no problem, but I tried switching to Squeeze, and grub for some reason didn't pick up on the Windows partition this time - it just shows the two Linux options (debian and debian single-user). I check the menu.lst file (which I've edited under Lenny with no issues), but for some reason it doesn't exist at all in this install. Is it in a different location with Squeeze maybe?
Since upgrading my laptop to Squeeze, terminals (tested Gnome terminal and xterm) show simply a "$" prompt; machine, path and username are missing. What's really annoying though is that tab completion doesn't work, it inserts a tab character instead. Fooling around showed me that typing in the command "bash" brings everything back to what I'm used to. So in my dire newbiness do I ask, how do I reenable bash as the default shell for these programs?
I use a net install CD to install the Debian 6.0.1(squeeze). After installation of gnome, I use apt install the mplayer. But when I use the mplayer open a avi file, it failed. The mplayer don't crash but give the following instruction:
Mplayer interrupted by signal 6 in module: filter_video - MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your gcc version. If you thin it's MPlayer's fault, please read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. [This binary of MPlayer in Debian is currently compiled with '--enable-debug'; the debugging symbols are in the package 'mplayer-dbg'.] I don't know why this happen, because all the package is installed with apt.
trying to get wireless usb's to work with a fresh install of Squeeze and I'm having no luck!one is the rt28070 (Linksys) and the other one is a D-Link DWL-132 I'm at my wits end; trying to get this working for a friend and its driving me bananas!!
Previously (on Lenny) I would boot my computer and it would happily boot through to the Gnome login page (the pretty graphical one). Now (on Squeeze) I get the plain old text login prompt. So I login normally and try running "startx". It comes up with a black screen and a mouse pointer. Nothing else. Ctrl+shift commands seem to work so I am able to get to another terminal. When I switch back to the first terminal there are just come Gnome startup messages.
I really need to have this working in order to do some "work". give me a sure fire way of either fixing this, even if it means instructions on re-installing Gnome? Normally I could copy log files from my Linux machine to my email computer but with no desktop I find this too difficult and really don't have the time to spend working out how to do it. (I have "work" to do as well). So, just briefly I will summarise the Xorg.0.log file:
I want install ati 5470 driver on debian squeeze .But i can't !I use this instruction : http://www.debianadmin.com/how-to-insta ... ebian.html When i enter below command , show an error(cp: cannot stat `/home/alireza/fglrx-install.rw8UHP/x710/*': No such file or directory Package build failed! or otherthing.) :# sh ati-driver-installer-8-12-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Debian/testing

I installed squeeze and followed the instructions concerning b43-fwcutter and obtained firmware for my broadcom wlan interface. So my wlan worked for a while, but it just ceased functioning, for no obvious reason.
I would like to know if anybody using Squeeze has gotten the DCP-8065 driver from the Brother website to work. I am running x64 and have followed the directions precisely (ia32-libs, etc.) but still no dice. I have been using the ubuntu version (brother-cups-wrapper-laser & its dependencies) and that works fine. I just want to know if anybody has gotten this to work and what they did that may have been different from the directions given.
I can't seem to get my adapter to work on my Debian Squeeze system. I have the wpc54g linksys notebook adapter and disk... but the disk will not autorun...I have gotten as far as to the adapter being activated, shows connection 97%, but I can't surf!
I'm trying to install Debian on Dell XPS L501, and there are lots of problems...
1- Resolution is 800x600! I guess, I need to add that there is no xorg.conf file, and I couldn't create it by running `Xorg -configure`. It said the number of screens didn't match number of detected devices or something like that! I'd be really happy if this gets solved!
2- Ctrl+Alt+F1/2/3/4/... doesn't work! Sometimes Alt+Directional keys works. but most of the time it doesn't!
3- I can't get the loud speakers to work, and I couldn't compile Alsa from source... I'll try again, but does anyone know if there is a specific package I need to install to get them to work? (Realtek ID 665)
4- Keys are not working right... Function keys don't work... But the worse thing, is that if let's say Fn+F2 is supposed to disable wireless, F2 does!
I am running a Postgres server and after I did the whole installation I realized the Postgres data was set in /usr/pgsql/data. Sda1 is just 10 Gig so I decided to re-organize the partitions to be able to move /usr to say /dev/sda7 with a mount point as /usr. The / partition is on the only primary partition and the rest is on an extended partition. When I tried to resize the primary partition GParted did not give me that possibilty so I decided to move /usr
Original partitions: sda1 / 10 G on primary partition this includes /usr /var and all others sda5 swap 2 G on extended partition sda6 /home 140 G on extended partition So I did create another partition using Knoppix and Gparted the disk:here is the new picture: sda1 / 10 G on primary partition this includes /usr /var and all others code....
I did rsync to copy all the file to /dev/sda7/usr and then mv /dev/sda7/usr* /dev/sda7. I stop the postgres database and services then I mv /dev/sda1/usr to dev/sda1/poufusr . When I rebooted it reports errors from kbd files on /etc File not found. It brings me to a terminal (No GUI) I did a check with :#mount: nothing is reported about sda7
I cannot log on. I don't know if this is related, I was setting up for remote desktop, setup a password for the remote session. After rebooting, my normal user and password do not work and my rdp password does not work.
I have a motherboard Gigabyte H110M-H DDR3 1.0 and a VGA Nvidia NVS 300 (It doesn't have HDMI connector, but after Debian installation, it shows audio HDMI), After installling Debian 8.4 Jessie amd64, I noticed the sound doesn't work, the motherboard audio codec is a Realtek ALC887, I don't have a HDMI Monitor, nor my VGA has HDMI Connector, but is a little bit strange that Debian recognizes HDMI Audio, if a run "# cat /proc/asound/cards" it shows me two audio cards, the HDMI and the ALC887 and if I run "# cat /procs/asound/modules", both cards are using snd_hda_intel. It is installed PulseAudio and Pavucontrol, I have checked if the audio was muted, but the sound volume is set to 100%, I don't know what to do anymore... I have a computer with a realtek codec too, but it's another model ALC665 or something like that, and the system is equipped with an ATI HD 5450 with HDMI Audio, I have checked the what modules the Debian is using, and both uses the snd_hda_intel, but the sound works with HDMI and Realtek Codec.
