I have a old mac G4 and I just recently installed ubuntu 10.10 on it. It doesn't recognize my wireless adapter at all so I get no wireless on the computer. I've never used any linux distribution in my life so I don't have any idea how to install drivers for it.
Just installed Ubuntu 9.04 last night. All seems perfect except on shutddown. It seems to go through all shutdown processes but right about the time you expect the computer to turn off a message says: "system halted [4027.514883]" Have Googled it but no matches. If I just push the on/off button at that point it shuts off immediately
I recently decided to install Ubuntu 11.04 on a 320gb hitachi sata hard drive. This is going into a new system with an Asus MB, AMD Proc, not sure if this matters. Anyway I can not set the bios to use ahci and see the sata drive. I can only use IDE mode with sata enabled. Asus support says to install ahci for os. If I boot into the USB install key and attempt to the install OS I receive a read/write error. I have another drive on IDE that has 11.04 on it and if I try to format the new drive and partition it with Disk Utility it fails with "Error formatting drive: error creating partition table: helper exited with exit code 1: error calling fsync(2) on /dev/sdb: Input/output error". I have tried to use dd and fdisk but I don't believe I need these until I do something else first just not sure how or where to look.
I am trying to start Damn Small Linux from a USB stick on a HP t5000 thin client. When starting in Default mode the system just stops. When starting i failsafe mode, the text rolls on the console until the message "RAMDISK: Compressed image found on block 0" and then hangs..What does that mean? What could be wrong? Can I run the image without using a ramdisk?
I have recently installed Linux Mint 10 on my laptop. When I look at the Device Manager in Windows 7, it says I have an Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. Right now, I am unable to connect to wifi with Linux. What drivers am I able to install, and how would I install them?
In order for TRIM to work on an SSD with encryption, I need to make sure to "select the AHCI option before installing the operating system."Does anybody know how to do this? I have no idea what this is talking about. I'll be installing 11.04 with no dual-boot. Just Ubuntu alone.
Yesterday I was working on my laptop using the windows 7 partition. At some point it froze and I ended up just having to shutting it down by holding in the power button. When I started it up, it said something along the lines of "can't find bootable partition".
So I made myself a ubuntu flash-drive, and ran Code: sudo fdisk -l
This is my output. Code: Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x74836e35 .....
I have installed ubuntu 10.10 for a short time, now I meet a problem:I always leave for lunch and leave my computer without turning off. When I get back, it shows a window. after I input my password, I enter my system.Then It halts, the only thing what I can do is moving mouse. After halting for nearly one minute, it resumes to normal.I hope someone can tell me what happens.
Yesterday I was on my Windows computer doing homework. Once Football came on, I hit the Standby button on my keyboard and walked out of my room. Came back at halftime to discover that my system never went into Standby. I turned on my monitor and saw a bunch of code repeating. I don't remember it all, but it was something to this effect
Super Block not compatible with current BIOS scanning for *insert system file here*.... not found scanning for floppy drive... not found scanning for cdrom1... not found
So I hit the restart button on my tower. When it restarted, I was brought back to the same screen. So I unplugged the power cord from my computer and counted to 10. I plugged it back in and this time I got my mobo logo screen and the system appeared to start up fine, until I got to the SATA drive scanning screen. When my computer would scan for my SATA hard drive, it would idle for several minutes, during which a series of periods (".") would show up until eventually I get a message that says: WARNING! - Something wrong with your hardware!
I have troubleshooted a number of things so far: 1) I took my SATA Hard Drive out of my computer and plugged it into my Linux computer and the system booted fine! I used the same SATA cord, so I know both the drive and the cord ARE WORKING! 2) I tested the power cord from the power supply that runs to my HD and it is working just fine. 3) I plugged the HD back into my Windows computer (the original one it was in when I started having this problem) and I ran GParted. When the GUI came on, I could not see any drives and there was a message at the bottom of the window saying that no devices could be found. This was no surprise to me because I watched the verbose mode as GParted booted and it gave error messages when it tried scanning for my hard drive. 4) I have also tried plugging it into the other SATA ports on my motherboard. 5) I tried flashing the mobo BIOS. The flash worked just fine (or at least it appeared so), but the HD is still not being found on the system boot scan.
Bottom line, I know the hard drive is fine because it worked in my Linux computer. So I am thinking it has to be the motherboard. But before I go out and buy a new Mobo and CPU (and possibly new RAM), I wanted to quickly jump on here.
I need to install wheezy nvidia-graphics-drivers because my video card (geforce GT 425m) isnt supported on the squeezy version. I downloaded the wheezy source code and built it on my squeezy system, some .deb files where created, the problem is I dont know which of those to install, these are the files:
I am trying to install wireless WiFi USB adapter LM-001 on to my machine. I downloaded the driver ZD1211LnxDrv_2_16_0_0 and followed the instruction rigorously.

I have windows 7 and ubuntu karmic dual boot system.i can easily transfer files via bluetooth in windows 7 but in ubuntu it shows a message bluetooth adapter not connected while as i dont use any such adapter while working in windows .
The situation: computer based on Asus P6T motherboard. Two RAIDS:
- 'boot', on motherboard built-in RAID controller (CentOS 5.5 installed on this RAID) - 'data' on 3dware RAID card
At one moment a CPU fan fails and the system halts. After the fan is replaced, BIOS informs it's reset and all the inner controller data are forgotten. After I switch it to 'RAID' mode, it remembers it was a mirror raid (RAID 1) installed, but the file system on it is completely trashed.
The 'data' RAID run by external controller isn't affected by the system failure. Three questions:
- is it worth trying to install OS on the rebuilt 'boot' RAID once again? Looks like if BIOS settings are lost for some reason, there's chance of completely losing RAID data - has someone encountered similar problem with built-in RAID nd was it possible to recover data? - will the software RAID be worth creating instead of using hardware RAID to replace the 'boot' drive?
Have you had to download drivers for GNU/Linux and install them when some device didn't work? Except nVidia/ATi drivers I mean. Just like in Windows. Or the only driver you can download for GNU/Linux is a driver for videocard and all other are in always in the system?
I can't seem to get my adapter to work on my Debian Squeeze system. I have the wpc54g linksys notebook adapter and disk... but the disk will not autorun...I have gotten as far as to the adapter being activated, shows connection 97%, but I can't surf!
i have just installed Fedora 10 and now my wireless adapter doesn't work and i think it's because i need to install drivers for it.. I have been using Ubuntu for the last few weeks and it worked fine in ubuntu probably because ubuntu comes with drivers for my adapter already installed.. Now, i'm kind of newbie so i don't know where to look and what to do.I did lspci and here is my adapter.. Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)
I can't seem to find drivers for my wireless adapter, TL-WN722NC, so that it can work on Linux (Ubuntu). I have already emailed the company, TP-Link, and they said that it does not support Linux yet.Is there a way that I might be able to get drivers for it somewhere else?
I'm booting from disc on a compaq presario F700. Somehow, I messed everything up and now it's not reading that I have an OS. Which was previously vista. Now, when I boot from disc and try to install no partitions come up. I did open the blasted thing to clean it not too long but as far as I know, nothing dislodged. It is a laptop, btw. So, my kneejerk reaction is that the hard-drive got damaged or knocked loose. I also tried using kill-drive to erase it so I could start fresh, also no Hard drive detected. So, I'm going to try that. In the meantime I have another issue. When booting from disc I can't seem to get the drivers for my wireless adapter to install. I have them. Madwifi for AR5001X but I don't know where to put them via terminal.
I've installed it and it looks great. my problem is that I cant connect to the net since I could not find the driver for my onboard network adapter. it is a Gigabyte GA 945 GCM S2L board. of coarse I searched their site but it says that Linux driver I have to achieve from 3rd party. the adapter's chipset is a Realtek RTL 8111C but I could not find the driver for it. the only one that I've found - doesn't work. I must point out that when I've searched driver for my Nvidia display adapter- I've found it on Nvidia's site and it works great.
I am new to Linux and actually just finished my install about 30 minutes ago. Ubuntu 10.04 isn't recognizing my wireless adapter, so I need to install the drivers. I know where the drivers are, I just don't know how to install them on a Linux system.
Here is the driver page. I don't know how to download the .inf file (necessary?) but I have ndiswrapper, bcmwl5.sys, and sp33008.exe all in the downloads folder.
Apparently just double clicking the files does nothing, so what do I do now?
I have two devices (a usb modem and a camera) permanently hard-wired into my system. When linux boots, it automatically inserts their drivers. However, I would like this to be under my control to insert as and when needed. Can anyone give any pointers as to how I might disable auto-insertion, whilst still allowing manual insertion via insmod or modprobe? I understand the usual method would be to use modules.conf, however in my modules.conf file, there is no entries at all.
We have the need to install an older Linux distribution (Suse 10) on a brand new laptop. The kernel that comes with Suse 10 doesn't have new enough drivers for the NIC and the drive controller. We've been able to find the source code for the NIC and build a working NIC kernel module however, we can not find the source code for the drive controller outside the kernel tree. Newer kernels see the drive fine; the controller is the Intel ATA_PIIX. Its included in the kernel, the hardware we have it just newer than the version in the old suse 10 kernel supports. I've crawled all over the intel site looking for the code outside the kernel source and have been unable to do so. Is it possible to lift the code from a newer kernel source tree? Is it available for download anywhere?
Edit: (from a comment below) SLED-10-SP2-x86 is the OS. The installation of these systems in an automated process, trying to change the process to include a VM (if we had the memory) or install a different base OS; while doable- can't be done in the time allowed. To get through process development, testing, UAT, staging and deployment takes much longer than the time we have. The old laptop had this same issue and the fix by my predecessor was building the NIC and drive modules by hand. We need to simply update those modules for this new laptop
I have a DWA-130C (external wireless) and am trying to install the drivers for us in Linux Mint, I'm assuming this is done with ndiswrapper, but I have no idea what I'm doing. I am a begginer to Linux though I know the basics of using the console, packages and such.
I have just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on an old machine to get a feel for it. No problems with the install, but I don't have a LAN connection lead spare so I'm trying to install my Belkin Wireless G USB Adapter (K75-F5D7050B which requires version 3 according to the Belkin site).
Unfortunately I can't find any Ubuntu software & driver versions on their site and I only have a windows installation disc.
I really want to drop Windows, but wireless connectivity and frequent crashes are really discouraging me. I have a dual-boot W XP with Ubuntu 10.10. I do not have the computer on, so I'm writing this from my weak memory USB Adapter - Netgear WNDA3100-100NAS = v2 The adapter works under W XP with no problems The router, Linksys WRT54G sees the adapter in the dhcp table lsusb lists the adapter.
I have copied the drivers from the install CD onto the desktop. I cannot figure out how to install or access those drivers for the installation. I tried to install the ndiswrapper from the software center, but the center shows it's available from the "main" source. I've looked in the package manager, but can't find it. When I go into terminal, and enter one of the suggested commands in the forums, it can't be located. I have a Belkin F5D8010 installed on this computer, and it works great under W XP. I want to try to get this installed, but until I can figure out installation of the ndiswrapper and how to access it, and get the drivers recognized, I'm at a standstill.
I have finally had a enough of windows and i want to change my laptop to linux, firstly what is the best distro that people recommend, i am trying to decide between ubuntu, fedora, mandriva and ultimate.
Secondly how do i go about installing all the drivers on a acer aspire 5920G laptop, and where can i download these from?
I have scoured the web the last few hours and I have come across a plethora of similar problems relating to Ubuntu and Nvidia drivers. However, I still havent found a sufficient cure for the problem.
The exact problem I face is that as soon as I install the Nvidia recommended drivers using the "Hardware Driver Manager", I restart the system but it never gets past the login splash screen. After I log in it simply goes to a black screen and sits like this indefinately.
Does anyone know of a particular fix for this problem? I am at the end of my tether and there is no way I can use Linux if it means either getting a different graphics driver or sitting on a 800*600 resolution. (Not to mention I dont have acclerated 3d support...so no DVD playing!)
I have a Nvidia GeForce4 MX graphics card and im a complete n00b to Linx so please go easy on the technical jargon.
I know i know, some will say "eww Proprietary Drivers" but hey, ubunt is all about having more control of the OS. Is there an easy way to install Proprietary Drivers thats not through the hardware drivers option on system?
I downloaded from the following link: [url]... etinst.iso and i have a working flash drive Debian installer. I would like to be able to integrate driver support for my wireless adapter or my gprs phone for internet access during install so that I wont have to be connected via ethernet.
