It's for a Lenovo x140e laptop with Jessie. Specs online commonly describe the laptop as having BCM43142 but I ran "lspci -knn | grep -iA2 net" and the output says I have BCM43228. Not sure why there is that discrepancy but I am assuming the latter, BCM43228, is what is actually in my computer.
Anyway, I originally installed "broadcom-sta-common", "module-assistant", and "broadcom-sta-source", but that resulted in nothing happening so I think I am going to "apt-get purge" those and start over.
I know about the Debian wiki "wl" page but it only provides instructions up to Wheezy, not Jessie. And I read many previous threads but they often contain different instructions and mixed results, plus there are many moving parts here (kernel, OS, driver, packages) and the instructions seem to be changing over time.
I've been struggling to get my sound to work properly in my HP dv7 laptop in Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit.
If I follow the instructions here [URL] then I can get my microphone to work.
My speakers worked fine right out of the box, but the headphone jack does not. When I follow the instructions here [URL] and install the alsa backports then my headphone jack works properly, but when I shutdown my computer I get a loud crackling/popping sound. Uninstalling the alsa backports stops the crackling, but then the headphone jack doesn't function.
I loaded Fedora 10 onto my Lenovo T60 last week. everyday i boot it up and it works fine for a few minutes, then freezes. to the point of powering off. my mouse still works but nothing else. i power back up and it generally stays up after that.
Before i had Fedora i was useing PCLinux 2009 and it worked just fine. i get a kernel error alert every once in a while. i finally submitted it to Fedora to be reported. also a flash plugin says it is needed at times but most media plays.
Is there something i'm missing here? like i need to add an additional update? i already updated/installed most Fedora 10 updates.
Capitols v and m not working properly! Toshiba laptop. So far I'm v happy with Ubuntu, works really well! However, I have a madening problem: when typing I cannot use the right hand Shift key with either or if I do, the v looks like $V, and the capitol m ends up giving me a pulldown menu. I assume this is not common to Ubuntu, but maybe it is?
I have at office dual booting Fedora14 + Windows 7 in Laptop Lenovo G550. I am using it regularly for work. Recently it stopped normal shut down. It showed some panic message first time and i have to force shut down.It boots normally. Now it does not give any message during Shut down but it does not shut down properly. Every time i have to force shut down.I am ready to follow instructions from forum members. I want to know that how much serious this panic is. Will it result in corruption of installation?
I just put Fedora 11 on my Lenovo Thinkpad t400. I selected the integrated (lousy, but Intel (supported)) graphics device in the BIOS, but I really hate the lower performance than the discrete graphics device. However, this device requires fglrx or radeonhd for DRI. RPMFusion has not released an (a)kmod-fglrx, so I can't use that. I have heard radeonhd has some stability issues though, and I don't know how to install. I was wondering how I could completely change my graphics configuration (change chipsets in the BIOS) and get the X Server in Fedora 11 working with the new driver and chipset. Is it a good idea to use radeonhd, or should I wait for the fglrx?
Even then, how would I completely change my graphics configuration so it would work with a different card & driver? I don't want to do a fresh install because I've done a lot of work & customization with the F11.I don't know anything about radeonhd, so any information about this kind of thing would be useful.Finally, should I just suck it up and deal with the Intel graphics? Is anything of this sort really worth my time? (I'm willing to spend quite a bit, trust me!)
So, help me through getting my audio working properly on my Toshiba Satellite A105-S2081 Laptop. I think I've been through most of the help messages and tried many things to get it working correctly. The ONLY thing that has helped is to go to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and change model=auto to model=generic. (options snd-hda-intel power_save=10 power_save_controller=N model=generic)
I've tried model=toshiba, model=auto, model=lenovo, model=3stack, model=dallas and the laptops internal sound device disappears from the list of sound devices. If I plug in my Logitech Headset, it seems to work fine.It also seems to work fine if I boot it up into XP SP3.It does work now generally with model=generic, but not sure that everything works properly, like the headset & microphone jack. (Actually the reason I have the Logitech Headset is because the headset jack doesn't work).
This is a very new desktop system using an ASUS mainboard with built on sound. I've never had sound working properly and have re-installed many times. One sound will play (KDE4 desktop sound, Amarok audio, even games under WINE) but when a second sound plays, it stops the first one (and plays perfectly), but then the first app is no longer able to play sound. I tried to get Skype going today and have some very interesting results.
It works but on a test call my voice sounds like I'm going for the "Extortionist of the Year" award! Have a listen here if you feel like a quick laugh - [URL]. Great effect for issuing ransom demands, but not too useful when calling family. I recorded it via my camera so the quality is not fabulous, and the screeching noise is the from the birds in the background. Here is the requested information for diagnosing sound problems -
my cousin recently brought me an old dell to see if I could get it working.he mainly wants to use this machine to record himself playing guitar.I immediately tried installing ubuntu, but found it to be unbearably slow.the computer is on the verge of being an antique at 1ghz and 256mb of ram.so I started looking for alternatives, and decided to give debian a shot since I'm familiar with ubuntu and know that it is based on debian.I installed Debian Lenny from the netinst ISO and find it to be much quicker booting and loading programs than ubuntu.I will most likely put debian on my desktop when I'm finished getting this poor old dell set up.
I'm unable to get sound output working properly.I have checked that the volume is not muted. while using pidgin, after sending a message the "message sent" sound starts "skipping" like a scratched cd and the only way to get it to stop is to close the progam completely. I am unable to hear sound or watch videos with totem (and most likely other players, but I have not tested any yet).the files load audio files show their tag information and the length of the track and videos load the first frame but the file never actually plays. when I try to record with Sound Recorder, the application locks up.when I try to record with Audacity the software doesn't stop responding, but also doesn't record.I tried un-muting the microphone (monitor) to check that the microphone I have still works, and can hear it over the speakers, so this leads me to believe that my hardware is in good working order, but that I have something configured improperly.
I got a new (used) Sony Vaio VGN-SZ440, I installed Slackware-current x86. Everything pretty much worked out of the box, including wireless. The only thing that is not working is my sound (It is not muted I already checked :-p). Here is my lspci output:
I'm new to Linux and I'm still trying to make my linux work on an external drive. I think I have found how, but I need to use the pipe symbol in a command line and I don't have it on my keyboard.I've tried different settings for my keyboard and different language, but nothing seems to do; I try all the keys, with shift or alt, but nothing works.I'm working on Debian, Lenny, with a Lenovo 3000 v100 Laptop. Nowhere on my keyboard do I have the symbol I am looking for. I have the vertical bar divided in two, but not the continous one.Do I need somehow to remap my keyboard or add a function to a key?
I have a problem that Ubuntu 10.10 won't run on my Lenovo Ideapad laptop. I have managed to install it over ethernet a few weeks ago an it worked fine, but whenever I try to install it from a cd, installation completes successfully, but the Ubuntu won't start. A black screen with a lot of text on it and then everything freeze. I have tried it without installing and it worked (live cd). I have also tried to install it on my desktop machine and it worked fine. On my laptop, I already have a Windows 7 (64 bit) on another partition.
I tried to dual boot my lenovoT6570 with Fedora14 and win7. But the linux becomes extrememly slow and the firefox window cannot even be clicked. I reinstalled the linux again but the same problem persists. Is it compatible with dual booting? any solution or suggestion?
I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my laptop Lenovo T60. The problem is i can't make extended monitor in that way: laptop 1024x768 and Monitor LG L1952HQ 1280x1024. If i make this configuration, screens appear black and i can't go back without restarting. Presently system support only: laptop 1024x768 and LG L1952HQ 800x600. This configuration (laptop 1024x768 and LG L1952HQ 1280x1024) worked well previously with the same ubuntu 9.10 before reinstallation. I guess i should reinstall ore change to other video drivers? The refresh rate is set on 60 Hz.
I try to make a small AVR-Board boot a Linux from my Lenovo laptop, which is configured as NFS server (running nfs-kernel-server). Everything is configured correctly and it should work, but it doesn't.I just installed another laptop (from ASUS) with the same configuration (OS, tools, settings) and there it works immediately.
So I wondered, what's going on on eth0 ? I checked with Wireshark and here are the things I found out.On both laptops, the following paket arrives:
I have a laptop lenovo T410s, using RHEL 5.6, 2.6.18-238. I'm trying use the external monitor as dual head using the system-config-display tool, but the generated xorg.conf fails:
Monitor autoprobe results Monitor autoprobe failed. And if I boot up with the monitor attached using the old single head valid xorg.conf, both screens stay blank. It works only with the external monitor cable disconnected. I don't know what else to try.
I've just joined the linux gang(or I am trying to) I have
-downloaded desktop/netbook edtion
-burned to dvd using infrarecord
-changed bios settings to boot from cd
-used the override feature that gives a bootlist at splash screen but cd drive not listed so I assume the cd is not recognised as a boot disk
-tried the usb/cd maker that comes with in the rar but its looking for the cd image...an .iso file, but I can't find one in folder.
ubuntu says I can run a trial from the cd alongside vista but when I open the executable it just offers intall, no try and if selected starts to install I think I can do the partition thing if I have to but I don't want any vista running on my machine.
When I delete things from my home directory, or from my desktop,my trash can on the desktop stays empty, and the Empty Trash in the right-click menu stays disabled.The files disappear from view, but the disk space remains labeled as used.The only way I can empty my trash is through the trash on the panel. Weird
I was just trying to install some packages at the gpk-application 2.27.2, but they are not compatible. For some reason I can't install anyting. I have Fedora Leonidas. In another forum they told me that my package installer is not the proper for this version
I'm running fedora 12 64-bit with XFCE desktop. Updated to firefox 3.5.9 yesterday and that hasn't solved my issue... Just recently it is SO slow. I would even say its on ie standards I sometimes sit with pages "loading" only to find that the url soon changes to "search history and bookmarks" and the bottom left corner message says "stopped" - its most unreliable. at first i thought it was my sometimes dodgy internet connection but i have done several speed tests and after waiting ages for the page to load, the speed test comes up with about 2Mbps. This speed is not translated to the speed firefox is loading pages - several times i've had to stop all tabs loading and then reload them just because firefox seems to have forgotten its meant to be looking on the internet and "thinks" putting a message "loading" in the tab will do
I am having issues with Fedora 11 and audio. I have pulse audio running and configured. The volume control on the top panel (GDE) works properly, but i do not hear any volume until I move it up past 50%. I tested it with the advanced volume controls opened and it even shows the master volume not moving until the volume slider on the panel reaches at least 50%. Can anybody help with fixing this. It is very annoying. Thanks in advance for the support.
I am currently using Fedora 11 KDE as my primary operating system at work, but i am having a little bit of troubles getting an audio player to work properly. I am trying to play music off of a separate primary FAT32 file system (which is my shared drive amongst all my operating systems), but when i attempt to load the files via JuK, i receive this error: cannot find demultiplexer plugin for MRL.
I have been playing around with other players as well, and it seems like the only other player which will actually load up the media on this separate partition is Banshee, but doesn't seem to want to play it.
