I've read about all of the problems with the HP Mini's wireless and the Broadcom drivers. Running 10.04 LTS. Code: lspci -vnn | grep 14e4 01:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g [14e4:4315] (rev 01)
I have 2 drivers available to me under restricted hardware: Broadcom B43 wireless driver Broadcom STA wireless driver
I can get the B43 to connect and work, but not for more than a minute or so at a time. I see the following in the kernel log after the wifi adapter is activated: Code: May 25 09:16:18 jon-netbook kernel: [ 121.825109] Fatal DMA error: 0x00000400, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000 May 25 09:16:18 jon-netbook kernel: [ 121.825125] b43-phy0: Controller RESET (DMA error) ...

I just installed UNR from a usb drive on my hp mini 1030nr. I followed a guide and got the drivers installed from the drive, but they would not activate in the restricted hardware dialog. I tried to run update over wired, but I couldn't get ethernet working. ifconfig -a anly shows lo, eth0 doesn't seem to exist. how to get wifi working?
I just installed Fedora 15 on my HP mini 210-1000, everything is working fine except my wifi is not up. It says firmware missing. How do i fix this problem? Previously I used to have Ubuntu 11.04 on it and wifi worked fine, but I need Fedora as i am using .rpm based applications. So please assist me in getting my Wifi up! lscpi gives this:

after installing linuxmint lxde on my netbook the microphone wasnt working i followed the guide here [URL] and now nothing audio related is working, when i open alsa mixer it is completly blank, i dont even have the little speaker icon in the corner anymore. I would like to get all audio working with the microphone but priority right now would be getting back to were i started upon doing that modprobe command thingy the device does show up... also upon following that guide it made a folder in my home directory called soundtmp... and it wont let me delete it, how can i delete it?
I have tried several different distros - but none seems to work. The pc is a HP mini 1000 with 16 Gb flashdisk, 1 Gb ram, American keyboard. It had an Win Xp installed when it was bought. Later it worked with an Ubuntu. My older son, who owned the pc before me, will not give me his password. He wanted me to install a fresh, new Linux.
I have now tried to install Ubuntu, Knoppix, PcLinux, Mandriva, Feodora and a few more, using the universal usb installer. Ubuntu, Slacks and Mandriva works fine from the usb-key. But when I try to install to the minis flashdisk, it freezes.
Ubuntu stops during the install process just after I have selected the keybord (I have tried default English and Danish).
Mandriva lets me format the flashdisk, but freezes with white screen just before the install is finished. There after Mandriva can start booting from the minis flashdisk, but it stops for a long time showing the startup screen. After very long time I get a terminal screen asking for login name and password. (I guess Mandriva wants the password from my sons Linux installation).
My Intel Corporation WiFi Link 1000 Series wireless card stopped working yesterday after I did an update via Update Manager.After the upgrade, wireless is disabled and the option to enable it in Network Manager is grayed out. I thought that it might be the new kernel, but changing back to the old kernel I still have the problem.
I just installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my MP Mini 1000 and I have run into some troubles.First off, my wireless card doesn't seem to work out of the box. I figured that I would just plug into my router via ethernet and run updates, but then I ran into my next problem.
Nothing happens when I plug in an ethernet cord. I have a desktop running Windows 7 and a jumpdrive, so I can use those to get the files I need, but I don't really know how to fix this issue.I believe my wireless card is a Broadcom 4312, but I am unsure what ethernet card I have. If possible, I would like to just get the ethernet working and then let the restricted drivers manager take care of the rest.
I installed the netbook version of ubuntu 10. Problem is no wireless networks show up. So I have an eternet connecting. Only problem is when I plug that in, still no internet. I need to download drivers to make the wireless work.
My Dell Vostro drives my HL-2240 after a normal setup. The setup on my HP mini went exactly the same but would not print the test page or anything else. The HP recognizes the printer. I'm using ubuntu 1010.
I am not able to connect to a wireless network with the HP mini 110 series. When going to the wireless network menu, no networks shows up. if the solution could be described in a very easy "how-to" or just be made into a patch (if there is pathes on ubuntu) it would be nice.

I have a problem with the latest Fedora. Installed it cleanly on a machine with Gigabyte H55M-S2 with Intel Core i3. There seems to be no sound and I checked to see if anything is muted but is not. The manual says that the sound chip is ALC888B so this could be the first problem. Any ide how I can make it work? Here is a dump of some things on my system.
Code: [weaz ~]$ lspci | grep Audio 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 06) [weaz ~]$ uname -a Linux EarthwormJim 126.96.36.199-48.fc14.i686 #1 SMP Fri Oct 22 15:34:36 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I have a router that is 1000 Base T and two computers each with ethernet cards that support 1000 Base T. All are equipped with Cat 5e cable. Before I had a router that only went up to 100 Base T and I would setup one box with linux running proftpd. On the other box,I would use win xp pro and use firefox to ftp into the other box and download a file. Download speeds went up to 11.2 MB/sec. Now when I switched routers, I expected something like 120 MB/sec but I'm only getting 5.3 MB/sec. What do I need to change?
With the official release of Fedora 11, I decided to make an updated tutorial on how to install it and configure it on the Eee PC 901/1000. You can find the tutorial and packages on the fedora-eee website. I just started this thread for Eee PC-specific F11 troubleshooting and any questions or remarks regarding the procedure or packages.
Fedora 12 is nearly turnkey on my Asus EEE 1000 SSD netbook. I just needed a few tweaks to get the wireless and touchpad seutp. All of this info is scattered in various places including right here on the FedoraForum, but I thought if it would help just one more person to have it all in one place, then so be it.
1) I used the Fedora 12 i686 Live iso.
2) I installed it on a 1GB thumbdrive using my desktop Fedora 11 system:
3) While booting the EEE, hit the Esc key and select the USB device of the thumbdrive. Make sure a wired ethernet is plugged in. We will restore the wireless later.
4) Pick the defaults, except when it comes to the disk partitioning. I have the pair of SSD drives, one 8GB and the other 32GB. I reduced the swap volume size to 2GB to match the memory in the device rather than using the 4GB default (2x memory) and increased the / volume size to the max. I planned on turning off swapping and only intended to use the swap space for the sleep/hibernate functionality. Otherwise, I let the installation setup the layout. a /boot with 200MB of space, 2gb swap volume, and the rest under LVM covering both SSDs.
5) Finish the installation. Reboot and create your user.
6) Apply any patches that are available using SoftwareUpdate. Reboot if necessary.
7) Now time for setting up the wireless. We need the rt2860 driver. This is available in the rpmfusion.org repro. First we need to set it up. Bring up FF and use this url:
Code: 03:00.0 Network controller : Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 [8086:0083] On Fedora 15, when I boot kernel 2.6.40, my laptop is unable to connect to my wireless-G AP. dmesg shows the following: Code: [ 43.866090] wlan0: direct probe to 00:27:19:14:c2:ca (try 1/3)
It works fine, however, when I boot using kernel 2.6.38 (from which I am posting) and in Windows. Also, I found some emails from the linux-wireless mailing list which appear to be talking about the same problem.
The system is fully updated. I've tried the 11n_disable=1 hint I came across on the ThinkPad wiki, but it didn't help. (I'm on an Asus K42Ja, in case it's relevant)
Although I'm fine with staying at 2.6.38 for now, are there workarounds/fixes for this?
How to find out the series (i series or z series)in redhat enterprise linux If I give uname -a it gives Linux hostname 2.6.9-55.ELsmp #1 SMP Fri Apr 20 17:03:35 EDT 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux Does this mean that my server is in i series as it says i386..?
I have been through a lot of posts and was still unable to connect to the internet using wvdial utility after doing all the changes. I being a newbie to this operating system, didn't know how to get started. After going through a lot of posts, I came across an application that is going to be a part of Fedora 12 called ' blueman '. It is used to connect to the internet using a gprs enabled phone via bluetooth. It integrates itself with Network Manager making it even more easier to use. To install it type the following commands in the terminal:
Type in your password and hit enter. Then type
yum install blueman
The application is only 575kb and will install instantly.And after a reboot fedora will show an applet related to that application. Open it and click search to list all available devices and select your phone and then select bond to pair your phone with your computer ( if it isn't already). After bonding right click your phone and select serial ports>dial up service. this will make the gprs/edge/3G connection to appear in network manager and selecting it will connect your computer to the internet.
This was the bluetooth way. If you want to connect through USB, just plug in your phone and select PC Suite mode in your phone. The fedora installation will automatically detect your phone as a modem and the connection will appear in the network manager.
This works on all N series Nokia phones and also most other phones as well.
I see there are lots of messages about fedora 12 freezing.Actually I have such a problem with fedora 11 since I updated to kernel 2.6.30. My laptop, all of a sudden, freezes. Everything is freezed: mouse is not working, keyboard not responding (hitting caps lock produces nothing), can't switch to terminals, ctrl+alt+canc don't work. I can just push the power button to shutdown the system. BUT the hard disk activity is still going on. I can see and hear the sleeping daemons that cause some usual disk activity while the rest of the system is completely freezed.My system is a HP DV5-1025el with an AMD Turion ZM-80, Ati Radeon HD3450, 4Gb of RAM and 250gb HDD.I got fedora 11 regularly updated, now has kernel 188.8.131.52-105.2.23.fc11, but it is used to happen also with older 2.6.30 kernels, NEVER happened with 2.6.29 kernels. Video driver isn't the cause, since it happens with both proprietary fglrx and OSS radeon drivers.
I'm using OpenOffice from repo. In Calc I want to fill in 2 cells under eachother, consisting of a name, space and a digit. Then, after selecting both cells, drag them down to get a list of this name, with only the digits being different. When using OpenOffice from original download, this gave no problem. Now however, I'm presented with a Fill Series window that gives me some options like Direction, Series type, etc. And whatever I fill in, it says �nvald value. How can I get rid of this Fill Series window. The Help function in OpenOffice doesn't give a clue on Fill Series.
I was tried to compile the brl-cad for my IA32 machine. I install all the GNU auto series (autoconf, automake, libtool). Then I run sh autogen.sh asnstructed by the installation guide. But after the preparation finish, I check my directory. The make script does not exist. And everything broke down here. When I tried to run "make", I got this feed back: make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.(of course, there is no make file)I had run every step by using root account. Hence, there should not be any restriction on operation.
I've done my best to fix this but, after encountering numerous problems, it's become apparent that while I might be a pretty good Windows user, I don't know bugger all about Linux and evidently you need to be 1337 just to install drivers, but anyway...
I have a NVIDIA 6800 GT graphics card, old but still functioning properly. Fedora 13 didn't install any drivers automatically, so I went to the NVIDIA site to see if they supported their cards under Linux. They did... sort of. It seems they only provide a 'generic' Linux display driver for x86 architectures, which wasn't preferable but it was the best I was going to get, so I downloaded it. Their site provides a setup Readme, but I've run into countless problems and finally I've come up against one that it doesn't document.
First was the fact that I couldn't install it with X window running. I assume this is the base UI for Linux, so I rebooted into run level 3 and tried again, at which point it complained about a 'nouveau' process still running. I added the line rdblacklist=nouveau to my boot so that this wouldn't be enabled, but then it complains that my GCC is missing. So, I install the GNU Cross Compiler with the Fedora RPM manager, but now the setup complains that my 'kernel source tree' can't be found and asks me to install it - but what exactly is a kernel source tree anyway?
For reasons I can't even begin to figure out, the number pad does NOT work.i can get the num lock light to come on, but pressing the keys there produces no love at all. Right before I installed F10, my F8 x64 had been working flawlessly for a VERY long time and I have been able to verify that the keypad still functions both with the M$ Windoze Vi$ta virus and a live Knoppix CD.Since this is the first time I have had this issue, I don't even know where to look to consider solving this.
I did try the System->Preferences->Hardware->Keyboard and all of the HP layouts listed there, but I still can't get anything more than the Num Lock light to come on and go out.
