General :: Gigabyte Motherboard - Cannot Install Drivers In Mandriva
Jan 3, 2010
I have installed mandriva 2008 spring edition. In my home i am using bsnl broadband connection. But i cannot install drivers in mandriva linux. In ethernet properties it is showing me that unknown device.
I have decided to do away with windows for the obvious reasons. I have carried out a new instal of Ubuntu 10.04. on a formatted HDD in a Gigabyte GA-510UD atom mother board and have found that I can't install the M/B drivers from the indtall disk.
I'm finishing setting up my new computer.I'm installing ubuntu 10.04.The motherboard is a gigabyte GA-H61M-D2-B3When I plug the computer into my stereo, I get a horrible scratchy buzzing.How can I get rid of it?More info on hardware: Quote:lspci -v | less gives a lot of output, including this:Quote:
0:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Cougar Point High Definition Audio Controller (rev 05) Subsystem: Giga-byte Technology Device a002
I want to start using Ubuntu again but I gave up ages ago trying to get it to work with my Gigabyte EP45-DQ6 motherboard.I cant run from disc and I can't install.If I try to run it just takes me to a black screen with blinking cursor and that's all it does.If I try to install, basically the same.I can't get anywhere doing anything, so where do I start?How can I get it working on my system?By the way, this is with the latest Ubuntu.No, it's not a corrupt download or burn. I tried to download and burn, didn't work.I ordered a free cd, it did the same.This is an issue that is NOT related to the disc or the download of Ubuntu.
I'm about to upgrade a server for a local non-profit, and am looking at a Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3L motherboard and an Intel Core i5 750 processor. Does anyone have any observations or experiences with SUSE on this platform?
I could change and manipulate all the bios features before I put an administrator password on the bios. Now that I have put a password on the bios, even when I log-in with the correct password 90% of the motherboard settings are locked and un-changeable.
I recently set up a Samba Server on a new Gigabyte (Desktop) Motherboard with support for SATA 3.0. I used a new 1T SATA 3.0 (6Gb) Hard Drive. The system is performing poorly, seems to have problems both opening and closing files (*.dbf).
Also will hold a file as open periodically (may be a Samba Issue).
Does the O/S have to support this standard, or is it a function of the Hardware...?
I have wild idea to build a new Ubuntu computer from scratch. This is a great motherboard with lots of features, planning to have a RAID, and an AMD 64 bit processor(s). I want to be sure that I am installing the correct drivers..can anyone point me to a 'guide' to building a computer such as this?
I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 uname -r 2.6.28-11-generic
Checked cable/network with 386Box running Ubuntu 8.04 all OK. Could not get Realtek 8168 on mother board to work on Gigabyte H55M-S2H motherboard. I tried to install r8168 driver but no luck ... so I bought another Linux compatible card which turned out to be a RTL8139c (eth1) and the driver I am using on this is card is 8139too.
My preference would be to get the motherboard ethernet working but perhaps the card may be easier to get working. Anyway after searching the net for ideas and trying different things I've just about given up. I have reinstalled Ubuntu today so eth0 is back to using the r8169 driver. I'm no expert so my attempts at following other recipies have so far failed. From what I have read the 8139too driver should have worked with the RTL8139C chip so I have run out of ideas. I must be doing something wrong.
Last time I bought a new computer (I build them myself) I got a motherboard that had really poor linux support for a long time. Specifically the audio. I had to wait months before the kernel supported the on board audio chipset. That is exactly the situation I'm trying to avoid this time around.
I have some specific questions about "server motherboards" actually. I looked at a few models of server motherboards by intel, and some random models on newegg. I wasn't able to see much of a difference from regular desktop motherboard other than most had two sockets, and support for much more ram. These boards seem more popular with Linux users. Why?
AMD and Intel both have server CPUs as well. Some question, what's the difference?
To make this question more concrete, I was looking at this this motherboard. The main questions about it that I can't answer are:
Can I get a motherboard without on board raid and audio? I wanted to get a hardware raid controller and a PCI audio card. I thought a server motherboard would be cheaper and not have these "extras", since who wants an audio card on a server?
Where can I found out about Linux support for the components on this board? "Intel ICH10R", "Realtek ALC889", "Marvell 88E8056"
I'm buying this computer to work as a Linux desktop for a lot of compiling, coding and audio/video work, but I don't want to rule out the possibility of installing windows and playing some games at one point. (even if the last game I got has been sitting in its box unopened for almost a year). Is it a good idea to buy a "server motherboard" and play games on it, or are desktop boards better value for this?
The ultimate solution for me would be a motherboard that had GPL divers for onboard LAN, a single CPU socket, lots of PCI express and PCI. USB 3.0, and no fancy hard disk controllers since I'll be getting a separate one.
I'm thinking of buying a new motherboard for my desktop. I've chosen a model and I've read some reviews on it. A couple of the reviews talk about BIOS updating/flashing and stuff like that. As a moderate hardware guy (I've built computers, but only know the basics of hardware and how they work together) running Linux, should I worry about this. I've never updated/flashed my current mobo's BIOS
So are all these reviews specific to Windows users? I've never had much driver issues in Linux (other than ATI graphics cards), nor have I had to update BIOS.
one2busy here, Just got a Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P Mb and Core i5 750. Originally had XP, then Win7, then Win7 64bit ..... all work fine. Tried to install Ubuntu 10.04, when partition section popped up it did not detect either of my Hitachi SATA drives..I went to the website and the website for this Bd, at the bottom of the page, it says that 3rd party drivers are needed for linux. Does anybody know anything about this?
I have Foxconn motherboard 750/760A01.I install ubuntu and have problems whit driver for motherboard. When I search in net i saw that Foxconn have problems whit linox . how to install my Lan Card drivers, i cant find them in web. Now on Ubuntu i don't have any drivers for motherboard.
I used Ubuntu as my os for about 6 month.In that i could install gloobus coverflow,gloobus previve and gloobus flow. Few days back i install Mandriva 2010 in to my laptop.I try to find out how to install gloobu in Mandriva.But i couldn't.It's not available in Rpmdrake. I am a newbie and don't now how to do it.If some one now how to do it..
I recently installed ubuntu 9.10 dual boot. All went well until I upgraded the video drivers for the nvidia chipset on my motherboard. If I leave Gnome to start with the single user i created i get a black screen and 'mode not supported ' message on the monitor. BUT if i drop to root and 'startx' all is well and i can adjust the various screen resolutions and they all work well.
At this point i created another user name to check, and that works fine also, but if i drop back to the original user i get no screen unless i select 800x600, although all the other resolutions work fine with root and the other user name. Im stumped as I presume there's only one xorg.conf file for all users.
i just instaled bt4 on my hdd and i have a problem with instaling drivers... i cant find and install driver for my video card nvidia 8200 integrated on motherboard. exacly i got the problem with changeing video resolution... i have only 640x480 and 800x600, and here is the problem, i cant put it in 1024x768..
I have a touchscreen (DELL model)which is working with windows xp (with windows drivers for touchscreen installed). but i want to use mandriva 2008 on the touchscreen, which requires drivers of mandriva 2008 only. I have been trying very hard but in vain.
I have just installed Ubunto 10.4 on a old fujitsu laptop. But I have a new router D-link 8xx and a new Gigabyte GN-WB32L usb dongel. I think I got the insallation right but Ubunto will not detect my wifi usb modem. I can see the network symbol in uppr right corner of main menu, but it�s red marked (not connected).
When I tried to run the fedora 12 disk setup (iso), instead of having the nice fedora logo I quickly get tetxt lines showing all my sata disks and USB card readers properly detected though... and the instal freezes. This PC is a mobo Gigabyte G41m-ES2h with 2x500 GB WD disk... Very basic config with a wolfdale 2.93 GHz + 4 GB DDR2 ram... I don't quite understand as Ubuntu 9.1 setup does the same thing whereas "superGRUB" launched from a CD detects my disks & partitions normally.
This fedora 12 disk is ok (fedora 12 installed on 2 other laptops in dual boot) and on the first satat disk there is a Vista. Really don't get it but isolinux has had sometimes issues with sata disks on some of my previous PCs.
Basically I have been completely unable to install any distro bar those 2 (OpenSuSE 11.2 and Mandriva can't remember what version).
I tried Ubuntu lucid lynx and Maverick Meerkat, Mint 8 (helena) and 9 (isadora), fedora 12 and 13 and even....windows (I know that's not linux but meh).
When attempting to install Ubuntu and Mint I get the fabled errno 5 error. I have tried using 4 different optical drives, I burnt it at slowest possible speed I even used a usb to boot it and still somehow copped the errno 5 error (which is somewhat humorous when it tells me to make sure my cd/dvd drive is ok and i'm using a usb stick) I tried it on 2 different HDD's (both in this computer) 1 a 40gb the other a 1TB. I tried using sony DVD's, Verbatim DVD's and TDK DVD's I even tried using Verbatim Cd's.
When I attempt to install Fedora I get a (sorry as I can not remember the exact error message) cannot copy image from live cd error (or something along those lines) at around 54%.
With windows (again I know it's not linux but it might give some insight into what is actually going on) I get a blue screen of death before first boot EVERY SINGLE TIME and then it just continues to happen, this was on xp and 7.
My only idea I have as to what is happening is that my computer hates me and just likes driving me up the wall for kicks.
Lastly and ever so slightly off topic, if I manage to get another distro to install how do I stop it from killing my bootloader and how do I make that OS appear in my current bootloader.
Specs are as follows:
MOBO: Asus M4A87TD/USB3 CPU: AMD Athlon II x2 245 GPU: Radeon HD5770 RAM: Corsair VS2GB1333D3 2GB (1333MHz) DDR3 RAM, Non ECC Unbuffered, 9-9-9-24, 1.5V PSU: 600 watt shark HDD: West Gate 1TB 7200RPM SATA2 OS: OpenSuSE 11.2 32BIT
In some spooky way I managed to install Mandriva and have windows in all its flavours in working order, however Suse is still a challenge too far. I have one partition to spare, divided it up into one main and one for swap and tried to get the installer to understand that one should be / and the other swap and that they had to be formatted to ext4. I think I succeeded in doing that. However, I then want to get a working bootloader with working entries for Windows AND Mandriva. The installer wants to know all kinds of stuff and I have no clue what to tell it in order to have a working bootloader or GRUB or whatever.
I have a triple-boot of Windows Vista, Ubuntu 10.4, and Mandriva 2010. After a re-installation of Ubuntu I have been unable to boot Mandriva (it doesn't appear on the boot menu). I could sure use some help with this. Following is some boot info that I downloaded code...
