Built a machine w/ i5-4440 & gtx 960. I installed xserver-xorg-video-intel & xserver-xorg-video-nouveau. Xorg -configure fails, so I added xorg.conf I found online, makes no difference. xrandr can't open display. startx of course fails.
Backstory: My plan was to dual boot sid + stable as fallback with shared partition. First installed stable and whether connected to mobo or gfx card, I couldn't get login on tty, it would just hang on errors. So I installed sid (this time using lvm to hopefully make partitioning easier) and while I get the "failed to load nouveau" errors on mobo, gfx card gives me a login screen.
Just got World of Warcraft Installed and when I start the game after I get past the 2 cinema's while I'm trying to click yes on the rules the screen seems to bee flashing over and over and over. I was thinking maybe the 3d accelerator isn't installed or maybe I need to install something because its Intel?
I have installed FC13 (x64) but X Server fails to start on my machine having "Intel Corporation 82G33/G31" Integrated Graphics Controller. find the attachments xorg.conf & Xorg.0.log. My smolt id is [URL]...
I`ve read solution in this thread. [URL] It seems Linux driver for AR5001 does`n support ad-hoc mode. But user Selak found solution with a bridge. With this advice by my AR5001 card can finally be detected by other devices. I can connect to it with my girlfriend`s net-book with XP, but I still can`t share internet. May be I miss something. I haven`t shared wifi before.
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 have just upgraded from Lenny to Squeeze, and followed the D-I recommendation to upgrade to Grub2. However, the server will no longer boot - giving a 'missing operating system' error, so it's not getting very far in the boot loader process. I have read, in various location that Grub2 supports GPT, but my efforts to fix the situation have met with little success.
I have managed to boot the system using SuperGrub2 (recovery live cd) and can start up successfully from there. However, when I try to fix the grub installation using the Debian wiki recommendation, I'm met with:
<host>:/# grub-install /dev/sda /usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: This GPT partition label has no BIOS Boot Partition; embedding won't be possible!.
The attached disk is 4.5TB of RAID 5 disk behind an Adaptec 5405 if that's useful.
I'm a new Mandriva user,and have no clue about Linux system,but to be honest I don't want to use Windows product anymore. So I got the Mandriva 1 Spring Gnome,and installed it on my DELL Optiplex Desktop,works fine and very fast,therefore I decided to do the same with my Studio XPS 1640,but after I got a dark screen,so I used an external display(My TV) then realized that it doesn't support the video card on it ( ATI Radeon HD4670 ),and I don't know what to do.
I have a Dell D620 and I can't use any screensavers. Rather, no screensavers work. Just for giggles, I booted a Kubuntu 11.04 CD, updated the sources.list, installed rss-glx and was able to use the rss-glx and other opengl screensavers. The reason I say opengl is because those are the ones that I use but no screensavers work.
I just got a new laptop equipped with some weird (at the present) hardware.
=> Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N100 => Atheros Communication Device 1083
During the squeeze install no network harware was detected. (no wired, no wireless) On the net I read the wireless-N100 should be supported from the kernel 2.6.37 At last I tried Ubuntu 11.04 (LIVE) and the wifi was working. I also tried Fedora 15 (LIVE) and the wifi was also working. (kernel 2.6.38)But I want to stick to Debian (I am using it since Potato) What could I do to get at least the Wireless-N100 working ?
I want to build Taucs library [URL] , to use its sparse solver in some number crunching apps, [URL] Since i plan to build these apps with the intel development suite, i better build Taucs with the same set of compilers... but AFAIK Taucs doesnt exist in <testing> or <unstable> ( I could apt-get source, and set appropriate flags for compilers it it did ) and i do not quite understand its build system ..It is not a ./configure system...it relies on external libs like blas, lapack and metis... which regardless of existing in Debian repo are built with gcc-4.5... so.. no way of using this to link with an Intel built library...
I installed the Squeeze with CD-ROM netinstall. My /home is in /dev/hda6, reiserfs format, and I want to preserve it, I didn't make backup, and there is not the reiserfs option in the partition editor of the netinstall, so that it would be formated the home, otherwise it is not used as home, and I can not even mount it. I try to edit /etc/fstab with the UUID of the device hda6 as home. I have just found reiserfs in http://packages.deb.at/squeeze/i386/rei ... i/download.
Is there a way to get this scanner to work o.k. in Debian Squeeze? I used it under Windoes/XP but had to get rid of that OS because of a brand-new Lenovo PC. Vista does not support TWAIN drivers anymore as far as I know, so it looks that I am "sunk" unless...
I'm trying to start using Debian Squeeze 64b on my laptop, which is Dell Latitude D830 with Intel i965GM.
After Debian installation, when system should display some nice background and window which please me to log in, I see my screen gets blank, fuzzy, blank again, ...and after several times finaly all hangs. Surprisingly mouse pointer is displayed nicely and works. I can't use network on Debian becouse of windows authorization program which i can run in wine on KDE. This works on Kubuntu.
What I did already:
I installed KUBUNTU 10.04 LTS and it's doing job well.
I installed Debian Squeeze with options:
- enabled:base system, laptop
- disabled:graphical environment
After instalation I logged in on root account and did:
running Debian Squeeze (standard 32bit squeeze Kernels linux-image-2.6.32-5-486 and linux-image-2.6.32-5-686) happily without trouble on a 64bit capable Samsung laptop featuring an Intel T3200 Dualcore processor. However, when I try to boot using the squeeze 64bit kernel (linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64) the system proceeds through a few text lines immediately after Grub, and then performs a warm start.
The text output I get immediately after Grub look similar to the ones I get booting the 486 and 686 kernels, without any indication for the reboot behavior. The rebooting also seems to happen before any entry is written into the boot/system log files (logging is enabled). This behavior also occured when I first tried to prime the machine from the Debian squeeze install CD using the amd64 kernel. I'm generally happy with the 32bit kernels, but I'd like to use the amd64 support to do some Java compatibility testing for 64bit architectures.
The Laptop is a Samsung R510-Aura T3200 Delfina with the following Hardware and Setup (using Grub as boot loader):
- Intel Pentium Dual CPU T3200 @ 2.00GHz (see http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=37160 for details) - NVIDIA GeForce 9200M GS - 3GB RAM + 1GB reserved for GeForce - Konfiguration Details: -- Phoenix Bios
Maybe a strange BIOS-Setting that works with the 32bit kernels but not with the 64bit kernel? I've seen a post on here that indicates someone is running the amd64 kernel on a T3200 successfully, and the chip is definitely 64bit capable, so the reboot behavior is a complete mystery for me
I installed Debian Squeeze with no issues. I went to install latest Nvidia driver as done previously with Lenny. Used instructions that worked on lenny from "the trooper" [url]
Downloaded th latest driver for my GeForce 7300 GS vidio card, driver package NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.12.run
Used "method # 2 as described in HOW TO,as it worked perfectly in the past on Lenny. Only syntax I changed was instead of gdm I typed gdm3 as it appears that is the new name for gnome in Squeeze.
Did as folows:
Now the trouble showed up, Unfortunatly I can only go off my memory. A question was asked stating that something did not match, it needed a 3 and the driver had a 4 version or somethng of this sort. then it asked if I new what I was doing (and I lied) and selected yes. And whammo, it didn't work. (This question was asked when i did in Lenny and it is working perfectly still on that system). I now can not boot to GUI, I notice when system boots it starts in "S" mode although I select normal boot from grub2.
Not too bad if I got to reinstall as little is on the system. I just want to know what I am missing on the instalation deal or should I be going about this difrently with Squeeze.
Just installed squeeze on a new laptop(had been runny Lenny on my older one with no issues, but no sound or wireless on the new one).I decided to install the ATI drive for my Radeon Mobility 4500(or some close revision) because the fan is constantly running and based on some other postings, it seems that it could be the graphics card causing it.Downloaded the driver from ATI's site and it seemed to install fine but when starting X.
I want to install VGA driver on debian squeeze. my VGA is "Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrated Graphics Controller".I do not know which driver I must install for this VGA.Does Linux recognize related driver ?
hHey i recently installed Debian Squeeze 64bit over my Ubuntu & Windows, i got everything installed and running including all programs i need without a single problem The one thing i havent been able to do yet is install the Nvidia Driver for Geforce 8800gt, ive searched a few sites but one site is telling you to do this way and the the is telling you to do it another way then people are saying about having errors when xorg updates and stuff.
So i was wanting to know whats the easiest and best way to install the Nvidia Driver package (from nvidia website) onto Squeeze 64bit, i've done it on lenny but cant remember ow
If i get this working then il probaly use Debian as my main OS from now on.
I have this PC that came with W7 installed..i am removing it to install Debian Squeeze.I already have burned the 8 DVDs plus the Squeeze Kde CD.AFAIK, BCM 4312 is a proprietary driver, not shipped with Squeeze, but present as source in Unstable..I have already downloaded the files also... will the built *.deb be enough to enable my wireless, or to i still have to do it by hand. remove confilicting modules, build the module, insert it, put it in the corresponding filder. does the deb install do all that, or do i still have to do it, "the good 'ol way"?
I've been on numerous websites--with tutorials telling how to install the ATI drivers, I'm running Squeeze 6.0.1 Gnome amd64, the tutorial I am using is located at the ATIProprietary Debian Wiki [URL] when I try the following: sudo apt-get install fakeroot debhelper build-essential libstdc++5
I get this: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package fakeroot is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source.
Package debhelper is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'fakeroot' has no installation candidate E: Package 'debhelper' has no installation candidate E: Unable to locate package build-essentials E: Unable to locate package libstdc++5 E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'libstdc++5'
I have a feeling that apt-get is not searching the web, yet searching a CD perhaps? Because when I've tried the apt-get update, I get the following: Ign cdrom://[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.0 _Squeeze_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20110324-08:54] squeeze Release.gpg Media change: please insert the disc labeled 'Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.0 _Squeeze_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20110324-08:54' in the drive '/media/cdrom/' and press enter
After doing that, nothing happens, and my apt-get still doesn't work, everything I try and install like build-essential says it's not found. Also when I su nano /ect/apt/sources.lst the list in nano is empty???
I'm currently running a dual boot with windows xp/debian but as soon as I can get everything working, I'm going to turn this into a full linux system. Also my sound doesn't work, but my sound is HD sound that goes via the video card, I have it hooked up HDMI to my LG tv/monitor, sound works fine on xp. I think once I get the video card drivers installed it should possibly fix my sound issues at the same time.
From the wiki page I know the ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 card is no longer supported by the new fglrx driver in squeeze. Is there a way to use the older driver from lenny? I'm on the radeon driver and the glxgrears performance is pretty low.
