General :: Driver Support For HP Pavilion Dm1-2020eo?
Sep 21, 2010
First of all, I have not tried to install anything yet, just doing some research. I recently bought a HP notebook with the intention of installing Linux (I was thinking Ubuntu?) on it, and in my ignorance I assumed that driver support for Linux wouldn't be a problem. Alas, I have some difficulties finding out how to proceed with the installation.
The laptop I bought is a HP Pavilion dm1-2020eo, however it seems it is a region specific model, as I couldn't find it on HP's UK/US sites. Here is a link to the Norwegian description; I am sure you can figure out what the specifications are (don't know if they are relevant at all, though, heh).I couldn't find the model in this list, Windows drivers can be found here. I realise this whole post is a mess, however I hope someone is able point me in the right direction. (On a side note, does anyone know a good guide for building a boot disc/USB stick so I can customize the distro with drivers, partition tools etc?)
I have an LM Technologies 54Mbps wifi usb adapter.This is because my wireless section on my motherboard does not work.The drivers on the installation disk do not automatically install for linux. Looking at the manual I have to build the device driver. On the page is computer programing formulie that looks like a foreign language. I do not know computer programing. At the bottom of the page it says:-
Install individual driver If you only need driver of ZD1211 or ZD1211B you can issue: make clean make ZD1211REV_B=0(0 for ZD1211,1 for ZD1211b) make ZD1211REV_B=0 install(o for ZD1211,1 for ZD1211B to install the driver.
Then it says:- Build the debugging tool. There are two debugging tools in this package,"apdbg" and "menudbg". Run"make debug" to complete them both. If you do not have ncurse library, you may get some error messages while compiling meudbg. you can ignore it and get apdbg only. It goes on and on about network interface, configure wireless settings.
I'm trying to find out when QME2572 (Qlogic) card became support by the kernel. We have a RHEL 5.1 system that is moving to new hardware, however the kernel at this release doesn't support the new hardware, due to the Qlogic card change. I tired the Redhat KB and Bugzilla. Is there a Kernel change list etc I can search. Never really played around with the kernel too much so I'm just after some pointers for looking up this information. Offically its not supported until Redhat 5.3, I'm trying trying to research kernel info so I can tell the customer they have to upgrade.
I have an HP Pavilion dv6-2120ca and I'd like to find out where to find the graphics driver. This is the card: TI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Graphics I plugged in my MP3 player in and it worked with Opensuse.
Running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx here. Got a LCD AOC monitor. Model e943Fws. Starts OK until logging screen. As soon as i try to log into my account a "input not support" floats around the screen. Are there drivers i should install? Anybody knows this LED monitor..?
I have a HP laptop which can support 1600x900. But after I install ubuntu 9.10 on it, it can only support up to 1280x700. My laptop has a Nvidia graphics card. And i am using GNOME as my desktop environment.
The AMD tool ATI Catalyst does not provide Linux support for the ATI HD 6850. Running the tool allows the monitor to display in 1080P. However, it results in a watermark stating the hardware isn't supported.
Is there an open source driver that will support this card?
Can the Windows driver be co-opted for Linux?
When will there be an open source driver to support video cards?
I have an AMD Radeon HD 6950 and I know that no driver will be released for a while that works (current one causes xorg to crash and creates a reboot loop). Until then I have a 1920x1080 monitor running at 1280x1024 bc there are no higher settings.Is there any way to increase the resolution until the driver support comes? I tried a method involving xandr but that didnt work.
I am looking at purchasing a laptop (HP EliteBook Mobile Workstation), but I am not sure whether to buy one with ATI or NVIDIA graphics. My only real concern for graphics is driver support. Which has better support?
BTW, I dont know if this is important, but I will be installing Fedora linux. 12 or higher.
I have a laptop HP Pavillion dv6000 Intel (R) Core (TM)2 CPU T5300 @ 1.73GHz. I saw online somewhere that this computer was not very compatable with one or two Distro's resulting in some of the hardware not working as there were no drivers. So I was wondering what distro would be best for me, being a bit of a novice, without me getting to lost and ensuring that the hardware will still function afterward
I have the HD4850 and, I wanted to know if it is possible to use the CLI to see which version of OpenGL is the latest version I can use according to my driver. If it's not possible via the CLI then, what's the next best way? (I can't find a website for the radeon driver listing the latest OpenGL support per supported card).
I`ve read solution in this thread. [URL] It seems Linux driver for AR5001 does`n support ad-hoc mode. But user Selak found solution with a bridge. With this advice by my AR5001 card can finally be detected by other devices. I can connect to it with my girlfriend`s net-book with XP, but I still can`t share internet. May be I miss something. I haven`t shared wifi before.
When I first received it (used) a few weeks ago, this only happened occasionally and it took a while for a pattern to develop. The 7 hr stretch was listening to music of WCPE.org, but the next day I only could get minutes from the same site It sems to get progressively worse, yet the outside of the case, near the fan or anywhere else,doesln't get uncomfortably warm. I had another unit from the same vendor. He took that back and sent this one after a 24'hour test, but will not answer further communication. Generally I get best results if it has sat shut down overnight, but this morning even that was good for only a few minutes. It does this running XP from the hard disk or Linux from CD. Actually I would like to split the hard disk and put Linux on the second half as the default boot. But it won't run long enough to install anything now!
I create a Ubuntu boot disk 11.4 and selected Install all I got was a little white box near the bottom right of the screen. I got a new hard drive and wanted to try the linux operating system. With the boot disk the computer does boot from the cdrom drive, but I can't get it to install. After hitting forward on the screen preparing to install ubuntu the screen it says installing and gets stuck at that point. Booted from cdrom got as far as the "Who are you?"screen then the screen went blank but I can still see hard drive activity. Is it formating the drive?
Is there a way to programmatically determine whether a particular driver support is built-in rather than a loadable module? I'd be grateful if somebody would share how. I have written a shell script using the RTC (real time clock). I can check whether the rtc-cmos kernel module exists and load the module accordingly as needed, but I don't know how to determine when the driver is built-in. Of course, if the driver is built-in then the module does not exist.
I seem to recall there is a method to query the kernel config file (/proc/config.gz), through which I probably could grep for the CONFIG_RTC_DRV_CMOS parameter. I also can check whether /proc/driver/rtc exists. If that file exists then either the driver is built-in or the module was loaded.I realize the rtc-cmos driver is built-in with the standard Debian kernel build, but I still would like a way to query where the driver is supported.Is there a straightforward or direct method to query the kernel whether a particular driver is built-in?
I am using a Sparklan WUBR-505N abgn USB dual band stick for the wireless connection on one of my Fedora 12 laptops. I have an Apple Airport Extreme BaseStation that can advertise a 5GHz connection ie it broadcasts two sids... The network manger only see the 'regular' sid and the usb stick only connects in the 2.4GHZ frequencies. Does the rt2870 driver support the 5GHz frequencies? If so how can I force a 5GHz connection?
I'm an owner of a ATI mobility radeon X1300 card. Since ATI tagged my card as legacy, i'm stuck with the open source radeon drivers. Wich doesn't bother me, as i know they are slower and openGL support doesn't equal fglrx. What does bother me is that the current version 7.9 dev. claims to have full opengl support up to 2.1. I'm trying to use a extention that is part of the openGL version 1.3 and it's failing. This is a known issue for a long time now and it really disappoints me. "Compressed textures" is what i'm talking about.
Is there any way to make sure that drivers aren't tagged with something they support if they obviously don't? I guess the KDE4 kwin vs drivers thing is the same as i'm trying to say now. Drivers should be documented with what they effectively support and not what they should support. What can I do to make this public to xorg developers? I could only think about posting this here as i have no idea where to put it elsewere. Could someone please point me in the right direction to where i should send this complaint?
I am new to linux. I install fedora 10 in text mode in my system. Because some drivers didn't support. I don't no know how to install supporting drivers. My system config. are Intel 945 mother board, 512 DDR2 RAM, 80GB IDE hard disk, P4 3GHz processor. When i try to install in graphics mode after disk checking i.e while anaconda is loading my monitor automatically turned off. So I recognized that problem with some driver. So I installed in text mode. Please tell me where do i get drivers for my system and how to install in my system. I don't have Internet connection for automatic installation using yum which was i found from linux forum so kindly tell me manual installation.
When i put the command: /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup for install it it say this:
Stopping VirtualBox kernel module [ OK ] Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module [FAILED] (Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong) [root@server ~]# and the log: Makefile:185: *** Unable to find the folder to install the support driver to. Stop.
