Red Hat / Fedora :: Ethernet Card Not Detected In Red Hat 5.3 In Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop
Jun 14, 2010
i have installed red hat 5.1 on my dell inspiron 1525 laptop.It is not detecting any ethernet card.driver is marvel yukon 88E8040So far i found this package to be installed kmod-sk98lin-PAE-10.70.7.3-2.el5.elrepo.i686.rpm but it is showing me the dependencies problems..
I've been using slackware64 13.1 ever since it came out on my Dell Inspiron 1525, and I haven't really had any problems with my webcam in that time. However, last time I tried to use skype - I noticed that it couldn't detect it.
In kinfocenter, my webcam is picked up (OmniVision Technologies). The only time I've had a similar problem in the past is when I used the "Compact" option in lilo.conf, and the webcam wouldn't turn on. Just removing the option solved the problem.
Since I don't know what steps caused this to happen, I'm not sure where to start fixing it
I have been using Ubuntu since September of last year (2010) I haven't realized it, but my mic isn't working. I'm am not entirely sure what type of mic I have, but the output of "lspci" are as follows:
I'm on a Dell Inspiron 1525 running Arch Linux with an Intel 965 GM video chipset (from dmesg). I'm using the xf86-video-intel driver, and Xorg (using xfce4) works flawlessly, including compositing. Before getting into details about the HDMI, I'd like to ask why I don't gave an xorg.conf.d/10-moniter.conf, it's not there, just evdev, quirks, and synaptics (because I figured that moniter.conf could be modified to include HDMI). So, basically when I'm on my XFCE4 desktop, I plug in the HDMI cable and to the TV, and on windows, it would would work, but on Arch the TV just says: "No input", and my desktop just stays the same, so absolutely nothing happens. If I have it connected upon bootup, the HDMI displays (the BIOS and grub menu on the TV) until I select to boot Arch linux on Grub, then the tv screen goes blank. I've tried Googling this but I got no decent results, just a bunch of random posts of audio not working with Nvidia.
PS - I did dmesg and lspci (with grep HDMI) and no results, so maybe it doesn't even recognize it, but then what do I do? There's obviously Linux support for HDMI...
I used wubi to install 9.10 on my dell inspiron 1525. I had a problem with not being able to get wireless working, and found out that I had to activate the Broadcom STA driver which lead to a crash. Now I've rebooted, everytime I try to install I get 'SystemError() InstallArchives' or the authenticate box hangs. Is there another way to install these drivers?
I have a dell inspiron 1525 and installed Virtualbox 3.2.6 and installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a VM. The installers went fine. After updating and installing the guest additions and also installing compiz-setting-manager i'm still not able to get the compiz effects. please any suggestions .
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop and I ve installed Jessie with KDE desktop.Everything's fine !!!!! but sometimes when I use webbrowsers the systray with KDE menustart is going off and missing.After that I can't switch window to window and can't minimize or resize the actual activity, without or with hotkeys either can't close the window, and these option bars ar missing too.I always do restart but I ve had enough. It is very irritating.Also I have tried to switch user logons with Alt Ctrl Fxx and start another graphic array with startx and it has worked fine but that's not the right way I think!!!!
Have done the following troubleshooting suggestions from around the www:
LAN controller is enabled in BIOS dmesg | grep eth0 returns nothing lspci -v | grep -i net shows wifi adapter but no ethernet adapter ifconfig -a does not show eth0 ifconfig eth0 up confirms ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device Have done lsmod, but not sure what I should be looking for.
I would post lspci, dmesg or any other output, but as the adapter is not being detected, I have no network/internet connection from that laptop, have only one other Windows based (at this stage) laptop that I am using to write this message, and so would have to type out the output manually.Adapter indicators are both on when laptop is powered up. Am unsure if the ethernet adapter has somehow gone to sleep, and if so, unsure how to wake it.Perhaps the ethernet adapter is defective, but am hoping to confirm this before looking for a workaround/replacement.
Installed fedora 13 to hard drive on fresh partition,installed ok,ran updater,installed all updates.all working ok but fedora is not able to detect my laptop monitor.i am unable to increase resolution.stuck on 800 * 600. when a window in open and i need to click at the bottom of the window i cant because it is bellow the screen.I went to [URL] to look for drivers.it only shows display drivers for red hat 7.0.i tried them but wont install.is thier drivers i can use for fedora 13,or a way to force resolution into 1024*768.
today my windows crashed and i decided to move into Linux.But here comes my biggest problem now, i cannot connect to wireless network but i am able to connect through wired connectionmine is a 10 year old computer so i think the card used is Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABGi am using Fedora 14. please note that i know only very little in Linux so please respond accordingly
Inspiron 1525 - Wireless 1395 WLAN Mini-Card I passed two days browsing the net looking for a solution to my problem but no way.. Im running ubuntu 10.10 in my inspiron via VirtualBox and my wireless card is not detected by ubuntu.. I installed the bcmwl6.inf driver with the wrapper and it show me in wireless window that the hardware is not present.. So checked that in the terminal by typing :
I am using Ubuntu right now. But I wanted to install Fedora 12 on my Dell inspiron 1545 laptop. My questions are can I use a live cd if available for fedora 12 and then install it on my laptop like we can do for ubuntu. Are all the drivers available automatically installed during installation.
The problem I faced my last installation with fedora 11 was that I could not get the wireless installed and I was unsuccessful in installing the wireless drivers using ndis wrapper or b43-legacy or something.
Can you give me a detailed link which could allow me to install the wireless drivers and also the video drivers for my laptop. The problem I am facing with my ubuntu 10.04 is that it is slow, the flash plugin is worst i guess, some of the flash videos are very slow.
Taking all of these into account can someone suggest me a good operating system. I am pretty much interested in learning linux rather than just using it like a windows operating system. I am considering, fedora 12, suse 11.2, linuxmint, centos, mandriva. Which one could be a best possible for my installation.
As I am not willing to purchase a dvd for these linux flavors can I use my flashdrive to install.
I installed REL 5.5 on this Dell laptop (originally win 7) and everything works ok except when i get to the login GUI the LCD brightness (or lack of) sets to it's lowest so i have to click the f5 button to brighten the screen. If I log out, the LCD resets to the dimmest setting (can hardly make out the login GUI) and again I have to click on f5. I believe I need to update the BIOS but I don't know how. The BIOS update I dound on-line if a xxx.exe file.
Since the install and original tweaking of F15 the os and pc have been operating flawlessly now for a couple months. Today I slid the Sandisk memory card from my camera in but there is no detection of the stick and no paths in the media link directory. I searched the forum but did not find any post specific to this issue.
I am using a dell laptop which has Dell 1397 802.11B/G Wireless Mini Card. I not able to connect to internet and was not able to detect what actual problem is weather card is not supported (i.e. drivers are not available) .
Also, if any one can point to exact process to connect to wireless Lan using fedora12.
I have spent many time searching for my prob but couldn't solve it. i installed ubuntu 9.10 recently. the problem is that my integrated webcam and microphone are not being detected. i tried cheese, camorama webcam viewer and skype.. its like that webcam drivers are not installed. and i couldn't find any drivers. camorama gives the error: could not connect to video device(/dev/video0) cheese also says No camera found!
reading other threads i found that lsusb comand output might help so here is its output.. code...
I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 with a Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card and a Marvell Yukon 88e8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller, and I cannot for the life of me get the internet to connect. I've tried both wired and wireless connection. I have a PPoE connection through a Verizon FIOS Actiontek router I believe, though the PPoE part may be wrong, I had one five years ago when I first got their internet so they may have changed it. Point is that the ethernet and internet won't work, and without a working ethernet I can't fetch the right drivers for anything.
I had also tried plain ubuntu 10.04 and couldn't get them to work then either. It said 'disconnected' at first, and then said 'device not ready' There is no hardware switch but there is a key toggle. It doesn't seem to matter what state the wireless was in before booting into Ubuntu Studio, so I'm lost as to where to even start. Even though the network manager isn't there like in regular ubuntu, I assume there will be a simple way to connect to the internet once the drivers are found, right?
I've seen issues and read about fixing them, but usually it uses an ethernet connection to fix the wifi connection and, being new to linux (<50 hours worth of experience lifetime), all I managed to do trying to fix it myself was screw up the installation to the point where the laptop couldn't access the home folder and I had to reinstall. Other than that, I am usually very good at following instructions, as long as they apply to my laptop's issue I guess
The only other issue is minor, I can't seem to control the USB mouse I have, but the trackpad works fine so it's no big deal, probably a matter of downloading the mouse driver once the internet works.
Currently I do have internet access via the same laptop while booting Windows 7 (I installed Ubuntu Studio 10.04 on a 10GB Partition with the idea of using an external HD for most data storage).
Oh and it is a 64-bit machine, the Studio version I installed is 32-bit.
I have a old Dell Inspiron Laptop I would like to use, but it dosent have awhole lot of memory 160megs worth and tried running the live cd of Ubuntu and Lubuntu and all i get on the screen is a blinking cursor. It give me the option to boot off the cd but that is where it stops.
What Linux version should i get if i want to revive an old laptop? Im talking about a Dell Inspiron 1501, with a Mobile AMD Sempron Processor 3500+789 MHz, 448 MB RAM, running on Windows XP 2002 professional edition.
