I am running opensuse 11.2 on my hp 2133 mini notebook, I have been having trouble connecting my broadcom 43xx internal wireless modem to my BT Home Hub, I have looked at the b43 driver that comes pre-bundled with the live dvd and understand that the driver doesnt work, I have looked at the YaST Package Search and to my horror found 50 seperate packages, from: wl-kmp desktop - wireless driver for broadcom 43xx series of chips to sta-pae kernal for 43xx series of chips? How do i know which Kernal and driver i need to get my wireless network running and which i dont?
I am running Suse 10.1 on an HP laptop. After my last online update, the wireless card would not start. I can not turn on the Wifi light(there is a button to manually turn it on, but it no longer works).
And i tried the solutions too: - update the driver - update the firmware ... - even log in as *root* to see if it works.
However, I still can not have the Wifi light lit up as it used to be. This is so odd. Can someone help me out?
I have an Intel MB (855GME with 6300ESB) that I'm having trouble installing OpenSUSE 11.1 onto the IDE drive. It will install to a SATA drive but for various reasons I need to install on IDE (PATA on 6300ESB). The install fails to find any ide drive (I know the drive/interface works because I can install XP on this same ide drive and boot from it). If I parse the dmesg output I see the message "ata_piix 0000:1f.1 device not available because of BAR 2 (0x0-0x7) collisions". I'm trying to determine if there's some workaround for this. I've tried various kernel parameters and no joy.
I've tried Ubuntu with similar results. Older kernels WILL install onto this same MB/PATA controller (Ubuntu 6.06, 2.6.15 and RHEL4) so it seems that something changed in the ATA driver as the kernel has matured and my bios isn't up to snuff for these pickier drivers.
OK... I tried everything i could think of... but i still cannot get my Open SUSE 11.1 to mount my samba share at boot! I still don't understand the 11.1 boot sequence. can NE one help me... tell me what files to give you output from... Ty guys P.S. My shares originate from a Windows Server 2003 RC2 machine, and it's dns server doesn't work correctly... so my mount command is
mount -t //192.168.x.x/files/ /nET/ -o username=linux,password=xxxxxx please let me know what other info you need... I don't have the internet, so it will be tommorow b4 i see this again!!! Thanks
When i am adding a user using "useradd -d /home/test test" or "useradd test", it is now creating the home directory, whereas when i am using the graphical mode and going through several menu options, i am getting the home directory.
I've just installed F13 on Acer Aspire 5551G with has Broadcom BCM57780 ethernet card. And F13 does not recognize this card: in System > Administration > Network Devices tab is empty (but in Hardware tab the card is listed). So, I can't connect to the Internet
So far I've found: 1) Related bug for F11. 2) Related thread for F12.
I've tried all possible solutions mentioned in both the bug and the thread, but nothing could convince my F13 to like the ethernet card.
From the title of this post, you can see that I am having some trouble getting the Linksys Wireless-G broadcom card working. I have been doing some research and have heard that getting a broadcom card to work in Linux can be a real pain.
I have verified that Mint 10 recognized PCMCIA so I am good there. I installed Wifi-Radar to see if maybe it would recognize it but it did not.
When I type iwconfig, it does not show any wireless signals available. When I originally set up the partitions for this laptop, I used PartedMagic and was able to quickly set up the network on that with vertually no problem what so ever.
So I just loaded ubuntu 10.10....and it works great...except for my wirelessi've got a broadcom b43 ...i went into system, administration, download additional drivers and downloaded/authenticated a b43 driver, but my machine (hp dv4405) does not recognize any wireless signals. The wireless light on my computer doesnt turn on (there's a button to turn it on and off) anyways...it's annoying. I guess broadcom recently released some open source drivers, but I'm having trouble sorting through all the info
I have the system recognizing the card by default. I really didn't have to do anything in that regard. It's a Broadcomm A/B/G card. On the other hand, it won't detect any access points. I'm not sure what's wrong. I've tried adding them by hand, but no dice.
For reference, I have automatic updates running of course, the system was installed within the last 12 hours, so nothing's outdated, and the adaptor is a Broadcomm BCM4312 802.11a/b/g card.
I have a BSNL Broadband internet connection working fine with windows xp and OpenSUSE 10.3(Kinternet). it was working fine with OpenSUSE 11.0 when i upgraded from 10.3. But when i did a new installation of 11.0 with KDE 4.1 it just refuses to connect. The message i get is "either smpppd is not running or you are not member of dialout group". I checked smpppd is installed by default with KInternet. i am member of dialout group as well.
Running GNOME under openSUSE 11, I am unable to use my touchpad for controlling the mouse cursor on-screen. This seems to only affect one profile, as I logged on as another user and can use the touchpad to control the mouse w/o issue. I checked under Control Center > Touchpad and Enable Touchpad is selected, however I cannot control the mouse cursor under my main profile. I don't recall doing anything before to disable this, and also under Sessions in Control Center the startup program Touchpad is selected there. Again, this is only affecting my main profile, as I set up another account for testing and was able to control the cursor with the touchpad. Any ideas of what I need to check to resolve this?
Also, in addition to this, I can use the mouse buttons associated with the touchpad within my main account to control mouse button clicks w/o any problems, just the cursor is unable to move.
Just installed opensuse 11.2 (64-bit version) and I have a problem with the Mplayer browser plugin. Basically it comes up OK, I get the MPlayer plugin splash screen and controls exactly as expected, it downloads the media successfully (or at least looks like it does) but then doesn't play, it just reports "Stopped".
Mplayer itself works fine, it's just the browser that doesn't.
I have nokia N70 as 3g modem on my laptop ASUS A3A. I've already configure the modem by using yast and manual config through konsole. When I use yast, it recognized my n70 as a modem and I already configured all the provider settings that I assumed as correct because when I used those config on windows, it works all the time. When I try to connect through knetworkmanager, I can see that on my phone that it was connecting to the internet as a modem but suddenly the connection terminates.
I checked on /var/log/messages for errors and I found this :
I've tried configuring the connection settings several times but I still get the same problem. Then I delete all the settings and configured through konsole.All the configuration was good and my computer detected my n70 gracefully. When I try to connect, the same problem occur which LCP terminated by peer.
Complete n00b here. I am running openSUSE 11.3 and trying to load drivers for a network card. When I try to make install, I am getting this error:
Code: Makefile:69: *** Linux kernel source not found in any of these locations: Makefile:70: Makefile:71: *** Install the appropriate kernel development package, e.g. Makefile:72: *** kernel-devel, for building kernel modules and try again. How do I install the kernel-devel?
I have been using Open SUSE 10.3 for about a year now and have been very pleased. I am now trying Open SUSE 11, it seems good, loads a lot faster than 10.3 and seems to run a little faster. I have had a few probs but they have been resolved with help from these forums. But I have a big prob remaining and I have no idea what could cause it. For no apparent reason I will lose the connection to the net.It happens mostly when running aMule, it can be downloading fine for some while when suddenly the connection to the servers is lost and it won't reconnect, and then also I can not connect to the net with Google etc. The only way to solve it seems to be to shut down, wait awhile then reboot. It will be OK for a while then the problem re-occurs. There does not seem to be a problem with anything else on the system. I know that the Modem is OK as I have three HDD - 1 running Win XP, 2 - running Open Suse 10.3. 3 - running Open Suse 11 & the prob only occurs with SUSE 11, I do not get this problem with either of the other HDD. I have tried three versions of aMule, with SUSE 11,the one given on YAST - v2.2.2-0, & others from Packman v2.2.1-0, & vSVN, the problem occurs with each version so I think it must lie with SUSE 11. I have opened ports 4662 & 4672 on the firewall, & the setup I use is identical to the one on 10.3 which works faultlessly. I use a NTL Modem connected to the PC via Ethernet.
If I logoff my user id and there are open applications such as the OpenOffice word pressor, when I log back on the application continues and appears in the tool bar/panel at the bottom of the screen.I would like to know how I could prevent this from happening?If I log off I don't want any of the previously open applications to restart when I log back in.I've checked the configuration but can't come up with an answer.
I have a Micro Innovations IC50C Basic Webcam that I am attempting to set up in openSUSE 11.0. I found some information regarding setting this up in Ubuntu, but the instructions were somewhat vague. When I plugged in the webcam to a USB port on my laptop, the following message was reported when issuing the dmesg | less from a command prompt:
I'm not sure what to make of this, but it appears to have found something that could be construed for a webcam. Also, unless I need to enable support in the kernel, the kernel I am using is the default that was initially installed with openSUSE 11.0 (no modifications), so all necessary modules should already be available. Perhaps that video4linux is not, but again I am not privy to a whole lot when it comes to webcams.
Anytime I open a window and then minimize it-poof it's gone! for instance when I minimize firefox or just about any other app it just disappears instead of landing into the panel as it usually does when minimized. Is this a KDE problem? I just tried to upgrade to 11.2/KDE on the net (that was a mistake.) I finally installed from Downloaded DVD (install version) and crawled back from upgrade hell.
I have installed Open Suse 11.1 on two different machines. One contains an ATI X850 video card, and the other contains an ATI X1950 video card. I updated the ATI drivers on the 850 card and it works like a dream. I updated the ATI drivers on the 1950 card and Suse becomes unusable. System works fine before the update. Before the update I ran it at a resolution of 1280 x 1024. I thought I would lower it to 1024 x 768 to see if that would help, but it does not. I dual boot with WinXP, and card works fine with that setup at 1280 x 1024, so I would suspect this is a specific problem with my Suse setup as opposed to a Motherboard issue.
I just did an install from opensuse 11.0 to 11.3 using the live web install. After the install, I found that the monitor always reverts to 87hz refresh rate and must be manually adjusted to 60hz. Also, there is no adjustment for the monitor resolution beyond 1024 x 768. I can not find the video card info in yast like it was before. Do I need to add the ati sources in yast? Will that give me a way to adjust the video card properties? Video card is the ati rage. Box is a dell optiplex pentium 3.
