Fedora Installation :: Download A Installation DVD Of F10 For My New ThinkPad T500 Laptop?

Apr 2, 2009

when I tried to download a installation DVD of F10 for my new thinkPad T500 laptop.The architecture of the processor should be i686 and I downloaded the DVD image Fedora-10-i386-DVD.iso. I understand i686 has backward compatability with i386. But i have following questoins:

(1) why we don't have an installation for i686?

(2) If I install the i386 package, do I get performance downgrades?

(3) Also, why the live DVD has this file called F10-i686-Live.iso?

(4) Finally, I always get message like "Warning: Cannot convert string "nil2" to type FontStruct
/usr/bin/xterm: cannot load font -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-120-75-75-c-60-iso10646-1" when I use X application. What's the problem here? BTW, I used Fedora core 8 before I didnt have this problem.

Slackware :: Thinkpad T500 Fan Control - Way To Control ?

Jun 2, 2010

I have had my thinkpad for just a few short months and, it must be that we are heading into summer, but I am starting to finally run into some overheating issues especially when compiling software for awhile, i.e. kernel.

My question would be, "Is it best to let the built in thermal management take care of the issue, and I just need to know what to tweak, or to put on a script solution such as the tp-fancontrol script?

The computer takes about 5-10 minutes to overheat and the message I get in /var/log/messages is "logger: ACPI group thermal_zone / action THM1 is not defined" then it shuts down.

So, any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.

I am running slackware-current x86_64 on a Lenovo Thinkpad T500.

Ubuntu Installation :: No GUI After Upgrade To 11.04 On T500

May 1, 2011

The upgrade from 10.10 to 11.04 on my Lenovo Thinkpad 500 completed without any errors showing, but after booting I get a text login only, no graphical login screen. This is quite frustrating as no error message was shown during the upgrade and no error message is shown on the screen during or after boot.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lenovo T500 Will Not Suspend After Upgrade

Aug 11, 2010

I'm experiencing an annoying issue since I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.4: when I try to put my Laptop to sleep, the control sign for suspension starts blinking and that's it: the system hangs and I've got to kill it with pressing the power button. Resuming doesn't work either, same symptoms.

Fedora Installation :: Cannot Install On T23 Thinkpad

Aug 16, 2009

I have been trying on and off for over 6 weeks to upgrade from fc10 to fc11. I keep getting the problem where Anaconda cannot format the HD. I originally downloaded the image and it fails when trying to format the fs even if I leave the original fc10 fs in tact I then used the LXF DVD and got the same problem.

I have tried both upgrading and new installs from an fc10 HD but it still fails to format.I have also tried formatting using fc10 (ext3) and have just read if I am using a live CD it must have an ext4 partition on it, but I assume it should be OK with the LXF DVD?I have been using Fedora for over five years now but if I cannot resolve the problem soon I will have to reluctantly change my OS, but before resort to doing this, could someone point me to any information that might help me to resolve the problem?I did try manually partitioning using gparted and ext3 without LVM but that also fails.

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Install 13 On Thinkpad X201

Jun 3, 2010

I tried to install Fedora 13 on X201 for a dual boot with Windows. Since there is no CD/DVD ROM on my laptop, I created a new logic partition and put the DVD iso image file of Fedora 13 on this partition. I also extracted the isolinux and image directories out of the DVD image and put it in the partition. I used grub for dos to try to boot to the installation. Here is the command I typed in grub console (For whatever reason, it did not recognize my menu.lst).

root (hd0,4)
kernel /isolinux/vmlinuz
initrd /isolinux/initrd.img

and then boot. The booting process went well until it reached "waiting for hardware to initialize", and then the screen turned black. I thought this happened because Fedora could not recognized (X201 has an integrated Intel HD Graphics adapter). So I tried adding different options to the line kernel /isolinux/vmlinuz , such as "kernel /isolinux/vmlinuz text", or "kernel /isolinux/vmlinuz xdriver=vesa nomodeset", and it still did not solve the problem.

Fedora Installation :: Installing 13 (x86_64) On A New Thinkpad T510

Sep 22, 2010

I'm having trouble installing Fedora 13 (64 bit) onto my new laptop (Thinkpad T510). I've repeatedly tried the following three methods:

1) LiveCD I can boot into the LiveCD okay, and all hardware is detected. Double clicking on "install to hard disk" makes the disc spin a bit, but then it stops and nothing happens. At the same time the "application loading" cursor is displayed for a couple of seconds, then goes back to normal. Otherwise it acts as if I never clicked on the icon.

2) DVD The installation process goes as normal until it has finished formatting the hard disk. It then says an unhandled exception occurred, but gives no other info in the "details" section (it's blank). Pressing CTRL+ALT+F3 actually shows a description of the exception:


DBNoSpaceError: (28, 'No space left on device -- /tmp/storage.state: unable to flush page: 5')
Pressing CTRL+ALT+F4 shows a constant stream of error messages starting with "ERR kernel:" which are scrolling too fast to read.
3) BFO (boot.fedoraproject.org)


Pressing CTRL+ALT+F4 shows a constant stream of error messages starting with "ERR kernel:" which are scrolling too fast to read.
I've used methods 2 and 3 to install Fedora on two other machines (with the same installation media as I'm using now) within the last week. The laptop is brand new and seems to run Windows okay (as well as Fedora from the LiveCD). I've tried resetting the BIOS to the defaults but that didn't help.

Fedora Installation :: 10 Upgrade / Installation Failing On Presario F700 Laptop

May 29, 2009

I've tried to upgrade my FC8 on Presario F700 series laptop to FC 10 and facing some issues. I've a live CD (i386). Initially i tried upgrading FC 8 to FC 10 and installation was stuck around 30% completion saying its unable to fins libdbi-0.8.3-1.fc9.i386.rpm. Then I tried to install FC 10 from scratch as system went to inconsistent state and faced two issues with two different setup options -

1) when i selected necessary software to be installed for office use and development, it failed after installing 20% saying libgnomeui-devel-2.24.0-2.fc10.i386.rpm

2) i then opted for for software to be installed for office use (default option) then it failed after installing around 50% saying libXrandr-1.2.3-1.fc10.i386.rpm

im trying to understand if this is a problem due to my laptop configuration (AMD Athlon 64 X2 Duel Core) or due to issue with the live CD.

Hardware :: Control The Fan Speed On My Laptop ( IBM Thinkpad T43 )?

Jun 1, 2011

I'm trying to control the fan speed on my laptop (IBM Thinkpad T43.) I used lsmod and saw that the thinkpad_acpi module was already load, but I know I need the fan_control=1 option so I did this:

$modprobe thinkpad_acpi fan_control=1.
Then I did: $echo level 7 > /proc/acpi/ibm/fan
and I get an error: write error: Invalid argument

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here, Also, if I wanted to load the module thinkpad_acpi at boot time with the fan_control=1 option, should I add it to /etc/rc.modules? In other words, does the rc.modules file override udev? And do I need to remove the module before reloading it with the fan_control=1 option?

I really need some control over my fan speed, as it seems by laptop is running rather hot.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 9.10 To 10.04 On IBM Thinkpad R51?

Dec 21, 2010

Has anyone done an upgrade like this on an IBM Thinkpad RXX WITHOUT serious problems? I do know that 10.04 has problems with Pulseaudio, since I do have it installed on my Dell desktop and Pulseaudio goes berserk occasionally and I have to power down the system and reboot. My laptop has a 1.5 GHz processor, 512 MB memory and is running just fine on 9.10.

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze On Thinkpad R400 Laptop Getting Very Hot?

Apr 6, 2011

I have Lenovo Thinkpad R400 laptop. It has Intel Centrino Core 2 Duo processor with ATI Radeon 3400 series graphics card and Intel Mobility chipset series 4 Integrated graphics controller. I have Squeeze ( stable) installed on it with kernel 2.6.32-5-686 .

My laptop gets very hot within 10 minutes whether I do any task or not. Also battery life is almost 40% as compared to Windows. I am more worried about temperature as it remains completely cool in windows. Mostly CPU load remains around 10% and CPU spends 99.99% time at 800MHz clock. I believe heat generated is by graphics card chipset.

Following are some information about my machine

$ lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Memory Controller Hub (rev 07)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset PCI Express Graphics Port (rev 07)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)

Ubuntu Installation :: Tap To Select On T42p Thinkpad?

Aug 26, 2010

Under 8.04 I did this to get the tap to select working on my thinkpad with a trackpoint in the keyboard. Is this still the same under 10.04? I'm not the greatest with the terminal so I want to check before I start a change.

Code: sudo apt-get install sysfsutils -Once that is installed, do; Code: gksudo gedit /etc/sysfs.conf -and add this line to the bottom, then save it.devices/platform/i8042/serio1/serio2/press_to_select=1 (several days later) OK, I went ahead and tried it and this is the way to get the trackpoint working - I originally had one too many spaces in the code but now I beleive the code as shown is correct for you people with a thinkpad (and maybe others) who want to use the trackpoint with tap.

AGAIN! Now it stopped working after a reboot. Does this command not make it permanent??

Ubuntu Installation :: 32 Or 64 Bit For 14" Thinkpad 0578 ?

Apr 15, 2011

I just got a 14" Thinkpad Edge 0578 with a Intel Core i3 M390 CPU . I read [URL].. and i3 doesn't seem to be listed with the 64-bit processors though it's supposed to have 64-bit architecture (The machine came pre-installed with Win7 64-bit). I wanted to know if I need to install a 32-bit desktop version ( i386 ) or the 64-bit desktop version ( amd64 ).

Debian Installation :: Squeeze 6.01 Thinkpad T520 Network?

Aug 10, 2011

I have a new Thinkpad T520 from work and am trying to put Debian 6 on it. I previously had a Thinkpad T42 and was able to install Debian 6. I recall having to find the driver and install it separately, so I downloaded all of the non-free drivers, but the network detection step doesn't seem to let me select my own driver.

I've been thru this at least 4 times, both the standard 6.01 and the AMD64 bit version, both behave the same. This has the (unfortunately) the Thinkpad b/g/n wireless card, but the wired ethernet is the Intel 82579LM gigabit. Seems there would be a driver with Debian 6 that would support that one.I can't stand running Windows 7.

Ubuntu Installation :: USB Boot Works With Thinkpad T60 But Not With T520?

I decided to test Ubuntu 11.04 on my Lenovo Thinkpad T520 as it has no OS currently. I created USB boot media with unetbootin on a 4 Gb stick, and it worked with my old T60 but not with this T520 (it just jumps back to boot device selection few seconds after selecting USB as there was nothing written on the stick).

Specs of the machines are

C2D T5400 CPU
3 Gb RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 GPU

Fedora Installation :: Not Sure What ISO File To Download

Jan 11, 2009

I'm not if I should download the i386 or the x86 iso. I'm not very familiar with hardware. The processor in the computer I want to install fedora on has an AMD64 athlon processor. My confusion comes from the fact that when I bought this computer it has what I assume is a 32-bit vista installation, and the recovery disc doesn't have the option to choose 64-bit or 32-bit installs like the one for my 64-bit vista machine does. The link for the computer I'm going to try fedora out on is here: [URL]. (I know it's not that great, but it's good for tinkering around with.)

General :: Installing Ubuntu On Lenovo Thinkpad Laptop - Won't Boot From Cd Drive

Nov 27, 2010

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

-didn't work

-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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Thinkpad T400 Video - Intel Chipset Only

Jun 18, 2010

I have a TP T400 and wanted to use a bit of Linux. Installed Ubuntu 10.04 in my notebook using Virtualbox. The problem is that it doesn't recognizes the video chipset, which is a X4500 integrated graphics. After booting I receive an error msg saying that my video is not recognized and asks if I want to fix it. Dunno how to do that, so I cancel. After that I can only use 800x600, wanted widescreen (1440x900). Is there a simple way to fix it? Liked Ubuntu, wanted to use it.

Ubuntu Installation :: ThinkPad T400 - Video And Webcam Drivers

Dec 30, 2010

I would like to install Ubuntu 10 on my Thinkpad T400, but would like feedback from other T400 users that have Ubuntu running on their laptops. First, will it recognize all my hardware? I hear most Thinkpad users had issues with video and webcam drivers, but that was with an earlier version of Ubuntu 8 through 9. So my plan is to have Ubuntu 10 as my primary OS on the T400 and use Win7 within VMware.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade Of AMD64 To F11 Tries To Download?

Jul 1, 2009

After burning the DVD of F11 for AMD64, I boot from it. After some choices, instead of going to read from the DVD it connects to the internet and tries to download packages. After some time it fails to read and goes into a loop for trying to read. If I interrupt this and skip the network section, it reports it can't connect to the internet. Why does it want to connect to the internet anyway when I've booted from DVD ? It didn't do that on x86.
