I have installed ubuntu in my windows vista using wubi. Wireless isn't working in ubuntu, so I have to install Broadcom STA proprietary wireless driver and it works fine in ubuntu. when I reboot into windows, to my shock, hardware isn't been recognised in windows. This is not first time I experienced it. I had same problem when i installed nvidia drivers on another dell precision. Its graphics got screwed and never been recovered. I tried re installing windows but problem still persists.
i ran yum update which updated kernel to 184.108.40.206.174.fc12.i686.PAE. Now after logging in i get a blank white screen. With previous kernel updates i have had no such problem. Anyway, the boot messages are following:
checking for module nvidia.ko [FAILED] nvidia.ko for kernel 220.127.116.11-174.fc12.i686.PAE was not found [WARNING] The nvidia driver will not be enabled until one is found [WARNING] Driver already disabled
I'm running Fedora 13 x64 and updated the kernel to the latest version (18.104.22.168-56 to 22.214.171.124-61). I use the proprietary nvidia drivers (currently 260.19.12) so I had to compile the kernel module against the new kernel sources and reinstall the driver. The process was apparently successful, but when I try to start X nothing happens, it's as if the computer had been suspended, my monitor acts like it isn't receiving any input. I have full runlevel 3 access, and the system seems pretty much fine up to that point. Nvidia's own sanity tests which are built into the installer reported no problems with my driver.
I applied the latest updates today and when I rebooted, My wireless broadcom driver is not working and the ifconfig does not list it either anymore, was working 8 min ago but is now dead. If I turn off the wireless with a switch and back on, I get a blue light but it remains disabled and greyed out on the network icon. Ubuntu 10.04, latest updates applied daily. I removed the driver and reinstalled it, it did not help at all. Also, my Truecryt gdecrypt stopped working.
Update: it seems the wireless switch on the front of the laptop is now working backwards, in checking the daemon log I found Turning off the wifi so the light goes out:
Oct 2 20:09:18 chuck-laptop NetworkManager: <info> WiFi now enabled by radio killswitch Oct 2 20:09:18 chuck-laptop NetworkManager: <info> (eth1): bringing up device. Oct 2 20:09:18 chuck-laptop NetworkManager: <info> (eth1): supplicant interface state: starting -> ready
Update, I found that if I boot the laptop up with the networking switch off, then, after I'm booted up, turn it on, it works. However if I reboot the laptop with the network switch in the on position I get the above issue with the switch being inverted and not working properly.
I use OpenSuse 11.1. My graphic card is an intel Q43/Q45 chip. I was instructed to update my xorg and mesa packages in order to make on application work (it was crashing my x server). After I did so, x wouldn't start:
intel(0): No kernel modesetting driver detected Screen(s) found, but none having a usable configuration
Now I am stuck with vesa if I want to have x running at all. I tried reverting to the versions of mesa and xorg I had before, when everything worked, but to no avail.
What can I do? (I am by no means an expert and that I don't know linux very well, and even less openSuse... just has to use it at work....)
I have an issue, this issue to be exact: [URL]. My broadcom BCM57780 is not detected. I just download Fedora 12 today and was happy to get it up and running. The bug report says it was fixed in f11, but it does not appear to be working in F12 either. I tried both the i686 and x64 live cd's and neither find the Ethernet adapter. I would really love to get my new computer up and running without having to buy another Ethernet card to do so.
I seem unable to get an nvidia driver working properly after upgrading to the latest kernel with Fedora 11.Here is my laptop and its specs: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...reg_R1002_USEN[URL]I've tried both the kmod and akmod unsuccessfully. Everytime it gives me a black screen on boot, I can fix the problem by popping in the LiveCD, and changing the xorg.conf file back to the backup.Here are the errors/warnings from my boot.log file:
Code: WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/. Checking for module nvidia.ko: [60G[[0;31mFAILED[0;39m]
I can't seem to get a screen on my Asus Netbook 1005pe. I did install the xf86-video-intel-2.10.0-i486-1.txz & kubdrn-2.4.17-i486-1.txz.I'm also having a Kernel Modesetting issue. Below is my Xorg.conf file & my Xorg.0.log file. Sorry if I am not explaining myself correctly.
I install fedora on my usb-hdd. Sometimes i boot it from real machine, sometimes i boot from virtual machine (kvm). When I boot from real machine, hdd driver is usb-storage, when i boot from virtual machine hdd drivers are ata_generic and pata_acpi.
Everytime i update kernel, mkinitrd only create initrd image contains only hdd driver current running, and I must recreate initrd manual with all preload hdd driver. How to config fedora to everytime update kernel, mkinitrd can make initrd image with all hdd driver I need?
I'm running kernel-2..32.12 from updates-testing. I have a Broadcom 4312 wireless card, how do I upgrade the drivers so they work with this kernel? There isn't undated versions of broadcom-wl & kmod-wl in updates-testing.
i just compiled my kernal now uname -r says>3.0.4 i m using fed 15 WIFI IS NOT WORKING is the issue wats the process to install broadcom driver in kernal 3.0.4 lspci | grep BC 03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)
Okay I posted about this a while ago, and i got my wired network to work, but now i need my wireless card driver to work. I have been doing research and I found something called ndiswrapper which drivers from windows working in linux. I typed in lspci in the terminal and it gave me my specs of my wireless card which is a: -Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 03)
-Some people said there is no original driver for this card, so you need to use ndiswrapper, I was wondering does anybody know what this is, how do i use this, and help me out to get my wireless card going. If you give me instructions, please be really specific as I am really new and still getting the hang of commands.
there was a new kernel update that I installed today. I used some kl mod packages to work my broadcom. For some reason its not working after the kernel. Is there a way I can recompile the driver or so?
My kernal version is 126.96.36.199-45.fc14.i686 (2.6.35). I have installed fedora 14. I dont have a wired network connection , so as mentioned in one the threads [URL]... i downloaded the RPM fusion of the driver and followed the steps. This is the first time m installing linux ,i have no idea if my kernel is kmod version. But when tried installing any of those codes provided it gave an err saying NOTHING TO DO. But my network manager doesn't show the wlan. It still says driver firmware missing. When checked the loaded kernel it did have ssb and b4. I did blacklist them. But reappears everytime i check and wl is not loaded.CAN anyone please help me know wat I should do?
i am using dell studio 1450..my distro is fedora 13.1 community remix..i have some problem 1- sound is not working,,, 2-wifi not working 3-lan card not working
lspci - sound 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03) Ethernet and wifi 02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation Net Link BCM5784M Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 10)06:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation WiFi Link 5100...i have tried rpm fusion update configuration also but it does nt work for me
I have an HP laptop running 11.3/KDE4.5.2, has integrated HD3200 ati graphics.
Yesterday, ATI version 10.10 fglrx driver was installed on the system, kernel was 188.8.131.52-0.4-desktop. I use the "build rpm" option with the downloads from ATI. All seemed running well.
I had installed the automatic recompile script posted by please_try_again after moving to 184.108.40.206-04, so today's new 220.127.116.11-0.5-desktop update was a chance to see it in action.
After the update and reboot, the X server restarted so I have to assume the automatic recompile script ran, although I did not see any messaging (place to look?).
However, some things did not seem "quite right". fgl_glxgears ran, but seemed slow (only 70 or so fps) pm-suspend failed to sleep the machine, I see the error message "s2ram_do: Device or resource busy" in /var/log/pm-suspend.log, which I think (?) is fglrx related but not sure why I think that. I moved to a root terminal, init 3, removed the fglrx rpm with yast, deleted the fglrx rpm and rebuilt a new one with ati....run. I then installed the new rpm (with yast), ran aticonfig --initial, then rebooted.
Basically, I am at the same level as above, fglrx installed and running, but slow and pm-suspend still not working.
So now I wonder if there is a new problem with the -5 kernel update, something like the excitement a couple weeks back when we had to patch the driver (or the kernel symbols) just to get a compile.
Can i assume someone has been able to cleanly update to 18.104.22.168-0.5 and get their fglrx running again?
An observation, which may or may not be related to my issues. The fglrx rpm installs a new /usr/lib64/dri/fglrx_dri.so, but in reviewing the log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log, it never appears to load. Two other *dri*.so modules do load. There is no "dri" section in Xorg.conf; I seem to recall there being one a while back, but much seems to be changing there.
I just updated an Ubuntu 10.04 kernel to 2.6.32-27-generic, and a wifi driver (r8187) is not present there. Is the only solution reinstalling it or is there a simple way to move it from an older kernel I have on the same machine?
You know, I thought I had my Broadcom issues all figured out, I have a simple list of installing the RPM Fusion repos do a yum update and yum install kmod-wl and everything works.However, this time it didn't work. I am installing a new fedora 14 for a friend who is totally fed up with windows and I get this error: (Yes I have searched the internet and Fedora forums for an answer)
I have tried the two yum suggestions and they don't work I have tried updating the kernel and have installed kernel-devel-'uname -r' (suggested by another site) I have tried installing broadcom-wl and b43-openfwwf which only knocked out the card entirely
I have a laptop and a Broadcom 4322AG Wireless adapter in it. I am using Fedora 11 64 bit Live. instructions to install and configure my internet connection in Linux. I dont know how to install drivers in linux though I have Got a 64 bit driver from Broadcom Website. In windows, my internet connection doesnt need any password to access. It get connected to internet when I turn on wireless.
