Here start the hell. after the restart i have passed the kde login screen and after BLACK SCREEN with mouse working.

3gb Ram
graphic card:Mobile Intel(R) GMA 4500MHD

Debian :: Booting From Another Drive - Blinking Cursor At The Top Of The Screen

May 17, 2011

I have a machine with Squeeze that currently boots from an USB thumb drive (that was the only drive on that box, referenced as SDA in /dev... Yep, no optical drive or HDD). I have installed an SSD on that machine. It is referenced a SDA, and the thumb drive has been nudged to SDB. I'd like to boot from the SSD and ditch the thumb.

I've partitioned and formatted the new Disk (ext4), created a swap file (to keep things simple, no swap partition), and used rsync -Sax / /media/USB0/ to clone the content of the root FS. I've edited the fstab file of the SSD to match the config (uuid of the drive, ext4 FS, swap file) then use grub-mkconfig -o /media/USB0/boot/grub/grub.cfg (I apt-get installed grub 2)

I've set the SSD as first boot device in the BIOS. Now when I boot from the SSD, all I get is a blinking cursor at the top of the screen (the thumb drive still boots fine). I guess I missed something .

I've been struggling with this for about 2 hours now (not the grub issue, the whole mess). I've tried googling this last problem, then searched this forum with no luck (I usually find stuff about people who want to boot from a drive other than the first one and must daisy-chain grub).

Bootloaders (and low level linux stuff) are new to me. I'm afraid to botch the bootloader of the thumb drive (grub 1.9x), and to be locked out of the machine.

Debian :: 7.8 Wheezy Amd64 - Screen Blocked Suddenly

Feb 18, 2015

I'm using Debian 7.8 Wheezy amd64, Gnome classic session. Laptop ASUS F551MAV, Intel HD Graphics (Integrated GPU), xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.19.0-6, firmware-linux-free 3.2

Sometimes, after inactivity, the screen turns black, not allowing me to see login screen. If I press CTRL+ALT+F1 (or F2,F3,Fn) nothing happens. The computer is still responsive, as I can reboot it through key shortcuts.

I have search in almost all logs in /var/log, without any information about the cause of the error. The time I was away from computer was between +- 18:10-18:22

Here is the log of daemon.log at the time of rebooting: [URL] ....

I can see one line that seems to be an error with (but it is displayed as warning):

Code: Select allFeb 18 18:21:47 debian gnome-session[3714]: Gdk-WARNING: gnome-session: Fatal IO error 11 (Recurso no disponible temporalmente) on X server :0.#012
Recurso no disponible temporalmente is in english something like: Resource not available temporaly.

Log of syslog at the moment of screen blocked
Code: Select allFeb 18 18:17:01 debian /USR/SBIN/CRON[4235]: (root) CMD (   cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.hourly)

Feb 18 18:21:44 debian shutdown[4411]: shutting down for system reboot

[Code] ....

It is not the first time that this is happens. It already happened a few times, that when I'm away, the screen is simply blocked.

Debian Hardware :: Wheezy - GMA500 Black Screen After Loading Ramdisk

Aug 21, 2013

I have just installed Debian Wheezy on an E6XX Intel platform and after loading ramdisk, the screen goes black and I cannot use the system.

*) In the beginning, I tried to pass "nomodeset" in Grub, but after loading ramdisk, it tries to change screen's resolution and it goes blank.
*) gma500 output in dmesg can be seen in [1] at the bottom of this page.
*) I tried passing "GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=640x480" + update-grub, but it keeps failing.
*) I examined EDI's monitor output through "sudo get-edid |sudo parse-edid" (see [2] below), it seems that it is not possible to get the EDID information from the screen correctly. However, I am using this screen with xrandr with Debian Squeeze and I have no problems.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> [1] dmesg about "gma500"

Debian Configuration :: Wheezy - After Update Systemd Turn Off Laptop Screen On Boot

Sep 25, 2015

I decided to update all the software on my computer. Fortunately, it upgraded kernel version 3.14 to 3.16. I was happy to learn that suspend now worked on my laptop by calling pm-suspend, but it did not worked by closing the lid. So I search and found on debian's website that installing systemd and adding some config lines in /etc/systemd/logind.conf would sove the issue. So I followed the procedure and did like instructed, to end up with a computer that boots on black screen.

The last verbrose line I see on boot up is "kvm disabled by bios" and then it shutdown down the screen. The computer works, as I can login and shutdown by doing those operation blindly.

I tried removing systemd but it still does not work. If I use the old kernel 3.14 I can boot without any problem, but if I use kernel 3.16, I boot to a black screen. I remember successfully booting in 3.16 before installing systemd.

Debian Multimedia :: Broken Scrollwheel In Wheezy

Apr 13, 2015

Something within the group of updates which I installed last week (April 6 to 10 or so) has impaired the functionality of my mouse's scroll wheel. It will no longer scroll pages on Iceweasel, Midori, some PDF readers, PCManFM, and others. The "up arrow" and "down arrow" seem also to have been compromised. I suspect the culprit might be libx11. This is an amd64 system with the nvidia video driver.

Debian Multimedia :: Snd_ca0106 Functioning In Wheezy Or Sid?

Jul 26, 2011

If you do, please let me know what sound card you're using. I'm beginning to think its the driver. All kinds of weirdness in early bootspace and also alsactl init fails with a missing init directory for the device.

I'm on a Creative Labs Soundblaster Audigy SE and it's completely non-functional. I've seen bugs reported with the audigy LS but never the SE.

Debian Multimedia :: Ffmpeg X264 Only 2 Presets In Wheezy?

Jan 12, 2015

I use ffmpeg to covert video files for the net.

Code: Select allffmpeg -i infile -vcodec libx264 -vpre ipod640 -b 250k -bt 50k -acodec libfaac -ab 56k -ac 2 -s res.mp4

which works good. I was wondering if I could use larger resolution presets, but

find /usr -iname '*.ffpreset' only gives

with only 2 presets for libx264.

I installed ffmpeg from deb-multimedia. Is there a package which provides further preset files? There should be e.g. hq, max etc..

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Won't Install On Wheezy 7.8 Sparc

Jan 18, 2015

So the other day I installed Debian Wheezy on my Sun Blade 150. While the OS is installed fine, all the webkit based browsers continuously crash after a few pages. So, I tried to download IceWeasel since it wasn't installed when I tried installing Debain off the DVD. The only problem is, it won't install as the Xulrunner version it requests is xulrunner-24.0_24.5.0esr-1~deb7u1_sparc, however the only version available on the repositories is newer. Is there any way to get the older xulrunner version, or is there going to be a fix for IceWeasel soon on Sparc?

Debian Multimedia :: Wheezy - Xorg 3 Monitors And Y-splitter

Feb 26, 2015

I am pretty new to using Linux, I am currently trying to configure 3 monitor's with Xorg in Debian Wheezy. I have 2 video cards in the PC and one has a Dell Y-splitter to connect 2 monitors. 2 monitors are 1920x1080 resolution and the other is 1280x1024.

Code: Select all00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family DRAM Controller (rev 09)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200/2nd Generation Core Processor Family PCI Express Root Port (rev 09)
00:16.0 Communication controller: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family MEI Controller #1 (rev 04)

00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 04)

[Code] ....

I attempted to write my own xorg.conf file, but that resulted in the machine booting to single user mode and the xorg startx error log said it could not find any devices.

When I used the generated by the "xorg -configure" command, I was able to get it to display as 3 independent screens, but there was overlap on the screens. I.E. if you moved the mouse to the right side of one monitor, it would show on the left side of another screen at the same time.

automatically generated xorg.conf:
Code: Select allSection "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     " Configured"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        Screen      1  "Screen1" RightOf "Screen0"
        Screen      2  "Screen2" RightOf "Screen1"

Debian Multimedia :: Triple Monitor Setup On Wheezy

Apr 29, 2015

I have some very strange issues with my tripple monitor setup on debian wheezy. I have acer aspire V3 laptop with i915 Intel (Intel¬ģ HD Graphics 4000) as part of i3 and nvidia GT 740M which I never managed to get working with or without optimus to any degree whatsoever. What I want is a reliably working triple monitro setup. I have 2 additional DELL u2412m monitors which I did manage to get to work on few occasions by more or less randomly turning stuff on and off via lxrand and KDE systemsettings (so I do knwo for a fact that tripple monitor setup works). Arandr doesn't work, and executing xrandr from cmd doesn't work. I can relatively easily get the 2 monitors to mirror each other, but to get them to work separately is extremy difficult. It's always the same error but the well known crt. For example:

xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1920x1200 --pos 3840x0 --rotate normal
xrandr: Configure crtc 2 failed

xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1920x1200 --rotate normal --right-of LVDS1
xrandr: Configure crtc 2 failed

When it did work I copied arandrs script in hopes it would work, but it doesn't. Obviously, here is the issue that the crtc can not be configured so if somoen could tell me why and how to get the damn thign to use a specific crtc it would be awesome. Also, I noticed that when I hit "identify monitors" in KDE systemtools, it would say VGA HDMI for both VGA and HDMI outputs.

Here is xrandr output from when it worked:

Code: Select allScreen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 5760 x 1200, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1920x1080+1920+0 (0x46) normal (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 382mm x 215mm
        Identifier: 0x42
        Timestamp:  143521
        Subpixel:   horizontal rgb
        Gamma:      1.0:1.0:1.0
        Brightness: 1.0

[Code] ......

Here is now:

Code: Select allScreen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 3840 x 1200, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1920x1080+1920+0 (0x46) normal (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 382mm x 215mm

Debian Multimedia :: Wheezy Backlight Is In Maxima And Can't Change It

Jun 5, 2015

I have a note HP Pavilion 15-p171nr with Deban Wheezy installed

used X = Gnome (gdm3) in classic view

Code: Select allyaroslav@hpnote:~$ lspci -k | grep -E "VGA|3D"
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0b)
0a:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation Device 1341 (rev a2)

[Code] .....

The problem: backlight is in maximum state and I can not change it.

There are a tons of advices like this:

1 - Open terminal (as a superuser) and type: gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub
2 - In the text file that opens, find the line which says GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" and, inbetween the "", insert the words "acpi_backlight=vendor" (the line will be as follows: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="acpi_backlight=vendor"), save and close the file.
3 - Back again in the terminal session, type: sudo update-grub
4 - Reboot.

It does not work...

Debian Multimedia :: Install Nvidia Drivers In Wheezy?

Debian Multimedia :: Package Conflict With KDE And Xfce (wheezy)

Jul 27, 2011

I have Xfce installed on wheezy, and I was planning on installing some KDE components for kicks. When I tried to install kdebase-workspace I got this error from aptitude The following NEW packages will be installed:


The following packages are RECOMMENDED but will NOT be installed: kinfocenter plasma-scriptengines policykit-1-gnome polkit-kde-1 upower 0 packages upgraded, 30 newly installed, 0 to remove and 49 not upgraded.
Need to get 78.5 MB of archives. After unpacking 137 MB will be used. The following packages have unmet dependencies: xfce4-notifyd: Conflicts: notification-daemon but it is not going to be installed.

If it's not going to be installed, then where is the conflict? I've seen "Depends: X but it is not going to be installed", which makes sense. The only solutions are to remove xfce4-notifyd or to keep most of the KDE stuff uninstalled. apt-get also wants to remove xfce4-notifyd. Edit: Ok, it looks like both plasma-widgets-workspace and xfce4-notifyd provide notification-daemon, but I still don't understand why the aptitude error doesn't tell me that xfce4-notifyd conflicts with plasma-widgets-workspace instead of notification-daemon.

Debian Multimedia :: Permanently Remove Gtk-3.0 Folder In Wheezy?

Sep 1, 2011

There is a folder in my home titled 'gtk-3.0,' which continues to reappear even after I have deleted it. The reappearance of the folder seems to occur after using lxappearance to change the themes. I will not be participating in the headaches of the switch from gtk2 to gtk3, just as I did not participate in the headaches of the switch from KDE 3 to 4. So the following are my questions;1. Is it possible to permanently delete the gtk-3.0 folder so that it can not ever reappear in my home? (And why is it appearing there anyway? Shouldn't it be hidden with a dot?)2. If I can not prevent this folder from appearing in my home, is there a setting I can use in Wheezy to block gtk3 libs and apps from installation? Presently, the only gtk3 lib or app shown by aptitude search is libcanberra-gtk3-0, but I can't remove it due to notification-daemon dependencies.3. If I switch from all gtk2 apps to all KDE apps will that solve the problem of gtk3 placing a completely unnecessary folder in my home?

Debian Multimedia :: Wheezy Warning: Keep Xserver-xorg-core 2:1.10.2-1?

Jun 19, 2011

I experienced this problem on Friday but didn't have time to write a warning.A couple of days ago, xserver-xorg-core 2:1.10.2-1+b1 reached Testing before a corresponding dependency (recommendation), thus breaking the hardware acceleration. The issue is (better) described here (1) by a developer.A possible solution is to keep (2) the previous version (2:1.10.2-1) or, if you already installed the faulty one, to grab the former version from Debian Snapshots (3) and downgrade the package.Because the error was a simple path change, one could also keep the new version of xserver-xorg-core and link the DRI Mesa modules to the directories that are inspected now (as described here [4]).The issue has already been addressed (5) and a new version should appear in Testing shortly.[URL]

Debian Multimedia :: Upgraded To Jessie From Wheezy - Sound Plays On Everything But Browsers

Dec 25, 2014

I just installed wheezy and upgraded to jessie. I had previously gotten sound working in wheezy by installing the flashplugin-nonfree and flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound packages, after configuring my headset in system settings. However, now I can't get sound to play in firefox. I've installed flashplugin-nonfree, flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound, and pulseaudio, still without luck. The volume is turned all the way up in alsamixer, sound tests play fine, and I can play music in VLC without any problems. This leads me to believe it's not a problem with drivers, but with some package I'm missing that will allow firefox to play sound. Sound wasn't working in the default video player either, before I installed the flash plugin. Is there something I'm missing?

Also, sound doesn't play on Konqueror either (KDE browser), which seems to indicate it's a problem with flash and not with firefox itself. After removing the flash plugin and installing pepperflashplugin-nonfree to ensure the pepper plugin was used instead of flash, sound still would not play in chromium, so I reinstalled the flash plugin and still don't have sound in any browser.

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:


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.
