My home connection is dialup via an 8-bit ISA modem. I plan to use the old box with the modem in it as a gateway and do my actual work on this laptop. Connection away from home is not so easy to get in my area.
SuSE 6.1 has no problem operating the modem, so the hardware works. SuSE 6.1 can't seem to make anything else work though. How can I configure Debian to see and operate this modem?
SuSE sees the modem on /dev/ttyS1. The same chat script does nothing on jessie. I'm guessing that jessie is just not seeing ISA.
I'm able to install packages onto the box via a usb drive but that's only on the days when the local coffee shop's wi-fi actually works, which is rare.
I am new to Debian Wheezy and I can't install anything. Ever time I try to install a .deb file I get the message saying that installation is not supported by backend. Also I'm unable to install from the terminal; it always says something like "path not found" or "file doesn't exist" (I'm on my phone so I don't have an exact error detail). Everything I've read tells me to install something to fix the problem but I can't install them due to the same error.
I'm running debian 5.3(i think) I've tried installing skype, google chrome and flash player. All of them are .deb files and on everyone it says "archive type not supported", what should I do to install them?
I've just tried to install X on my new debian system which had a nasty side effect. I can see the bootcycle up to "Waiting for /dev to be fully populated." and then the screen switches into a display mode unsupported by my display. I've had problems like this many times before because the display returns it's capabable of resolutions like 2048x1536, which it just isnt. I've had to disable autodetection whenever using this display. One thing to note thought is that it's NOT X that's messing up the display. It's setting the wrong display mode even before the filesystems are mounted. And I've already uninstalled X with no change either. Also recovery(single user) mode has no proper display output either.
once again banging the head against a brick wall, entered the following commands in to client and server, but get the above message on both, is there something wrong with the script, or thw computers? mount 192.168.1.68:/export/shared /mnt/nfs_on_debian
I bought SIMCOM GSM Serial modem . It is working well with Debian/Ubuntu OS; also I am able to control it using Minicom,Cu ..etc . Now I am interested to buy usb gsm modem.which USB gsm modem works well with Debian and ubuntu OS ? .
I am thinking about buying Belkin's Network USB Hub so that I can plugin usb devices and share it over network(Debian based computers). The device's website and spec can be found at: [URL]. Is this device supported by Debian Etch or Lenny? Did anyone used it on any versions of Debian where it worked? Is there a Linux driver for it?
I am new to Ubuntu and Linux. I think that I like Ubuntu, but I don't think it likes me! I can't get onto the internet with my "old fashioned" dialup that is preinstalled in my Dell Latitude. In fact I can't find any reference to a dialup modem in Ubuntu 9.10. Have done some research and it appears that my winmodem will not work with linux, but there maybe some complex way around this problem. Can it be done? I have a Conexant HDA D110 MDC V.92 modem.
I have ubuntu 9,10 and 7 repositorie disks I bought from osdisc.I installed ubuntu next to widows xp 3.I can't seem to connect to the internet or configure my system to do so.My us robotics usb 2.0 modem works great in xp but not at all in ubuntu.Is there someone out there willing to help me step by step?Or in anyway possible.Directions on how to or where to go for help.I'd really like to not be dependent on Microsoft completely. My telephone number is 903-566-3590. My fax is 9035660030. My address is 12862 Sandy Point Drive Tyler, TX 75707
Brand new to Linux. Just installed Debian 5.0.6 (64-bit). Upon booting up, the screen is all black with a gray floating screen that says "Input Not Supported". My guess is that the video card is not supported by Debian, but maybe somebody knows a way around this problem... (I know for a fact that both video card and LCD work fine in Windows XP.)
My hardware: * Video card: ATI Radeo HD 4850 * LCD: Acer V193W
I'm having trouble implementing SSL on a AvantFax login screen. I've created the the certificates and keys and have them stored in /etc/apache2/ssl and I'm sort of stuck now. I've been following a guide but any changes to the conf files leads to errors. The system I'm using is Debian 5.0
I have just set up the above OS, however, installation did not find my network and therefore APT additional software & security updates could not be accessed.The network was simple to setup post installation.I have uncommented a few sources in the sources list file but obviously that does not,in itself, suffice to get accessability. I am also unable to configure my supported HP printer and I assume that can only be done with an additional package via APT.
My hardware: Card: 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller. Driver: snd_hda_intel. Model: dell-d21 Notebook: California Access W651DI
Before I upgraded to Squeeze, I was using a USB Soundcard. With help of forums I did some manual tweaking to force system to use this card, instead of my default snd-hda-intel card, because it wasn't supported. However, this was a long time ago and I can't find what I did. Now, my on-board sound card worked perfectly on Debian 6.0 live DVD, but the installed system is silent. Any ideas how could I trace the problem?
When I play an MP3 - the player's silent. Speaker-test says:
I'd like to make a complete switch to Debian. One of the things holding me back is not knowing the state of play regarding sound card support. I've been fiddling around on and off for three years trying to get my M-Audio FireWire Solo to work in Ubuntu without much joy. I think there might be greater support for USB sound cards but I'm not certain of this. Onboard cards aren't OK because in my experience these pick up too much noise. After years of using balanced audio lines it's pretty much impossible to go back. That said, a PCIe card isn't completely out of the picture if I can get balanced outs with it.
I'm planning on plugging KRK powered monitors via XLR or TRS cables into the sound card. But my preference at this point is firmly with USB sound cards. Is there an up-to-date list I can check of supported sound cards in Debian? Can anyone here provide a testimonial of their experience? It's important to note that I'm after playback only. I don't want to record ever. That should hopefully make things easier. I'd be looking at using Debian wheezy.
I have a Canon Powershot SD1400IS camera and I didn't realize that they don't support Linux. I run Debian and my old camera, a fuji FinepixA210 at least shows up as a removable volume. I double click and I can get to my pics and download them without any trouble. I picked up my new camera from airmiles and never thought to check if they supported Linux. Maybe a card reader would be the answer, but I'd rather not have that expense, if there is another way.
I have F9, F10, F11 and F12 installed along with WinXP on my desktop PC. I connect to the internet thru 56K dialup modem (USR-5610B). The earlier versions of Fedora, F9, F10 and F11, all can connect via dialup modem.
My F12 installation is augmented with the following rpms - kudzu-18.104.22.168.i686, libwvstreams-4.6-5.fc12.i686 and wvdial-1.60.10.fc12.i686 (and the rpm for USR-5610B modem)
Network Configuration GUI shows ppp0 (Modem) in the Common Active Profile
However, ppp0 does NOT show up in the Network Device Control GUI, AND ACTIVATE and DEACTIVATE buttons are GREYED-OUT.
I am currently using Open SuSE 11.3 and connect to the internet through a fixed wireless terminal (CDMA Wireless modem), Huawei ETS-1201 with BSNL connection. The problem is that, after dialling and connecting to the internet, some pages dont load randomly. Sometimes, Google loads quite fine, but other times, it is just stuck and I have to reload the page several times. When I connect through Windows, I have no such problem. I have used Fedora, Ubuntu and Sabayon but the same problem exists. I don't want to return to Windows but is frustrated with my web experience on linux.
I need to convert a .jbg image to something else more 'generic' (.jpg, .png) but i discover that thar format seems not to be supported by default. Searching i found that i need jbigkit, so i download it but know dont know how to make it work?
I've been using Ubuntu and Mint for a few years now, and I want to try Linux on my HP Stream7 Tablet. I was very excited to learn that Debian 8.0 and later has support for 32 bit UEFI on 64 bit Processors and went ahead and installed the multiarch version of 8.2. It works, but I have no GUI (Just a command line) and no WIFI connection. It seems the GUI didn't install and the WiFi card is not supported. I have found a driver for the wifi card but don't know how to install this driver. URL....
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.
