Hardware :: Strange Graphical Errors With Geforce 7600 GT

Jul 19, 2011

since I upgraded from Debian 5 to 6 there are strange red (and blue) stripes all over my GNOME desktop.I have experienced these graphical glitches in the past, but only in 3d-intense applications, never on the desktop. What is wrong with my setup? Does GNOME (my version is 2.30.2) make use of 3d acceleration features that were not used in past versions (that is, in the version that I had prior to upgrading)? If so, I may have a driver problem -- however, the glitches occur with the free Nvidia drivers as well as with the proprietary drivers (I tried version 195.36.31, which should be fairly new). I am beginning to suspect that my video card is broken.

Red Hat :: 5.4 Not Compatible With NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600

Aug 14, 2010

I am trying for Redhat certification on RHEL 5.4. When i tried to install it on my Acer laptop with NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600, I was only able to install it in CUI mode and no GUI. From NVIDIA website I tried both the newest and oldest version they have for Linux, which is with .run extension. I tried installing it using sh <drivername.run> and it is starting the wizard, but exiting abruptly, with a kernel error.

How to work around on this issue? Any generic driver that would work for this display adaptor? whether version 5.5 would work with this card?

Ubuntu Installation :: Strange Mounting Errors After Upgrade?

May 16, 2010

I upgraded a linux box from Koala to Lucid, and everything seems ok except at boot I occasionally get an error mounting some partitions. Here is the boot.log:

Software :: Recoll Indexing Throwing Strange Errors On Some Files

Nov 15, 2010

I have installed Recoll 1.13.01 on my Ubuntu 10.04 box. I selected certain file directory trees to index and when I build the index using the gui it seems to work fine based on my limited testing. So far, so good.I planned to add a step to my nightly cleanup, backup and other housekeeping script to update the Recoll index. The command in question is recollindex While testing the command line indexing I found that an OLD password protected Windows zip file caused it to throw a bunch of errors. It appeared to continue. I located the offending file and as it was already backed up to DVD media and deleted it. I have also found a couple of other offending files which make me wonder about the robustness of this application.

The next case I had a file Session 12a.odt which for some reason was of 0 bytes - don't know why - perhaps I was just starting to write this document and never put anything in it.

Ubuntu :: Make-kpkg Strange Vanilla Kernel Build Errors: Found 60 Section Mismatch(es) ?

Apr 30, 2011

I've getting strange build errors when using make-kpkg with the latest (2.6.39-rc5) vanilla kernel.I'm using the procedure outlined here:

make oldconfig CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=`getconf _NPROCESSORS_ONLN` fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-custom kernel_image kernel_headers

I'm getting the following build errors:

Building modules, stage 2.

There is even much more error output but it looks like it is basically the same issue.

Fedora :: Hardware - GeForce 4 MX440 Vs GeForce FX5200

Aug 28, 2010

Today I received as a gift a 5 years old Gateway 500X CPU which is apparently dead due to a faulty motherboard (I still have to troubleshoot it, of course).

Even in the cause I can fix it, odds are I'll prefer to make the aforementioned CPU a donor for my other machines, instead of resurrecting an old Pentium 4 (no HT) system.

Being this the case I checked the parts for possible transplants:

512MB DDR PC2700 memory module (useful right off the shelf for my main desktop system).
120GB Maxtor IDE hard drive (also useful, assuming it is in working order).
128MB AGP8X NVIDIA GeForce4 MX440 graphics card.

On this last part (the graphics card) I have my doubts as of where to use it. My main desktop system already has an NVIDIA card: FX5200, 128MB, which is newer. The thing is that I've been doing some homework comparing both the MX440 and the FX5200 and get mixed opinions: for one thing the FX5200 is the latest of the two with some advantages like support for a later DirectX (which for Linux is pointless) and other things, but the FX5200 is also reported to be technically inferior to the MX440.

In your opinion/experience which card is a better performer? Should I expect a performance gain if I were to replace the FX5200 with the MX440?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 & 9.10 Installs Fail, Asus MX-M2V + NVidia 7600 GS?

Jul 31, 2010

I am completely failing at installing most variants of ubuntu on my desktop (ubuntu & kubuntu 10.04, 9.10, normal & alternate, and mint 9 tried, all MD5 checks OK). My system has: Motherboard: Asus MX-M2V (google +ubuntu) Graphics card: gigabyte nVidia 7600 GS (google + ubuntu) 2GB RAM, AMD64 dual core, etc.


I've bean able to get past this stage by removing the "quiet splash" install option, however it still fails, usually with a garbled screen. The alternate CDs seem to work better but still ultimatley fail with a garbled screen. Mint 9 when live from the CD had the mouse cursor missing on the normal greed desktop, only a few pixels over a square about 1cm x 1cm were shown. I managed to run the "hardinfo" report guessing where the mouse was and save to a USB stick, I have attached the report.

Reading forums I saw a few things to try so I just installed Ubunto 9.10 alternate CD adding "xforce vesa" and "nomodeset" to the command line. During install I disconnected my 2 windows HDs so as to simplify matters. The install was to have a whole HD (Maxtor 160GB, IDE).

On booting with only that HD attached I am presented with the ubuntu logo, followed by a black screen with the mouse pointer only. At a certain point in the screen the pointer changeds to a insert text cursor. Once I managd to get something to happen by typing in my passowrd at this cursor but after this point only a garbled screen. Another interesting thing, after this I installed GAG to the MBR of my primary SATA drive which successfully loads either of my win HDs, but when I try to use GAG to boot to the ubuntu HD it reports "sector boot not found or invalid" I can get a command line on the HD with the ubuntu 9.10 screen using the "Recovery option" from the install CD but then do not know what to try.

Fedora Installation :: F13 Live CD Garbled Screen Asus M2V-MX / NVidia 7600 GS

Aug 2, 2010

I am completely failing to boot the Fedora 13 i686 live CD (MD5 check OK), in every case after the progress bar at the bottom completes I am presented with a garbled screen. My system has:

Motherboard: Asus MX-M2V
Graphics card: Gigabyte nVidia GeForce 7600 GS
2GB RAM, AMD64 dual core, etc.

Some websurfing this might be a graphics option and I have tried adding different commands to the boot option before the "quiet" namely:

nomodeset nolapic / nomodeset noapic / nomodeset noapci / nomodeset acpi=off / nomodeset xforcevesa

None of which worked. Both Asus and nVidia offer linux drivers for download:

Debian :: Automatically Start Graphical (SDL) Program As Root On Non-graphical Debian?

Mar 3, 2009

I'm not a Linux noob, but I am far from guru. I'm running a single board computer with a slightly customized Debian Etch (customized by the SBC vendor). No Gnome/KDE/X installed. My application is a control application which uses SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) to paint some basic graphics on the VGA. I need to run it as root because the application calls iopl() to access an IO port.If I run my application manually from the command line, life is sweet. From Googling around, I found http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/28, and hence I:1) Created a script in /etc/init.d2) Executed "update-rc.d scriptName defaults" to link the script into the boot sequenceAll very straightforward. My application starts at boot. But when I try to SSH/SFTP into the SBC, I get "Connection refused". So I can't manage the SBC anymore, and this is a big problem. I am not sure if it's relevant, but my application starts before the SSH daemon.My script looked like:

case "$1" in
echo "Starting my application"

Debian :: Strange Link Gets Me To Different Sites?

Apr 19, 2010

Trying again here.. no-one on reddit seems to respond..It initially happened here (it was deleted, you can try the lower links.) Sometimes one, sometimes both of these links gets me to 'attack sites', it starts with both, then to one, and then neither does it. I am on Debian Lenny, Both Iceweasel 3.0.6-3(firefox), epiphany2.22.3-9, elinks0.11.4-3 and firefox 3.6.3 sometimes do this for me. It doesn't seem to happen if you enter it into the adress bar, but it does when you follow it by clicking.[URL]..Someone else reported it too, from XP w/ Firefox. The adress bar tells me it is subreddits.org the but the screen doesn't. (Worry my computer is compromised..)

Links it send me too, something on, orcug.com, thindx46td.xorg.pl and a whole range of varying other sites. http://i.imgur.com/d7ZGv.png So can you reproduce/any idea what this could be? I do worry about having some malware on firefox and such, also besides this, but as i said, it happens with other browsers. I have add-on flashblock, noscript, redditreveal, socialite, trackmenot, had tree style tab until i found it wasn't usefull enough. I also noticed that control+k gets me to bol.com (wtf is up with that??), and there was the random site you get to when you misclick.(Which i was able to disable.) I am gradually getting more and more pissed off and suspicious about firefox. (as on my computer.)

Firefox also seems start reading/writing from disk suddenly. (I use iotop when i think it shouldn't be writing sometimes.) Perhaps i should try set something up to record what writes to disk.

Debian :: Meaning Of Strange 'ls' Colours?

Anyone know what the 'ls' command means when it outputs the file name in red on black, with the permissions, owner, etc. all missing? The 'man' page was of no help. In the example below, from a DVD ROM, the third file was OK and I could read it. The first two could not be read, even as root.

Ubuntu :: Strange Black Bar On Desktop?

Sep 8, 2010

I noticed yesterday, after what must have been the most recent updates, that my display now has a dark striped bar running down the right hand side of the display. It runs between the indicator applet and the deleted items bin on my standard Gnome desktop. I know it's not my monitor since I can see both of those items but maximised applications will not fill this area, even though the cursor is visible there.I've tried changing a number of display options but to no avail.

Immediately I see some changes over Lucid: my computer can now hibernate successfully, a feature that worked in Hardy, but was broken in Karmic and Lucid. But a small annoyance is the strange colors. There is an abundance of purple colors in icons, in links, in indicators. I have attached a small snapshot of my browser. The circled purple area should be blue in normal contions.
