OpenSUSE Install :: Installing 11.2 On Old Sony Vaio Laptop?

Feb 3, 2010

I tried to installed OpenSUSE 11.2 "i586" on an older Sony Vaio laptop (model PCG-XG9) with 20 GB HD and 128 or 256 MB RAM. There is no ethernet port, but I have a PCMCIA WLAN card "Cabetron RoamAbout 11 Mbit/s", which should work perfectly with any Linux. The computer had Win98 on it originally (which, of course, after all installation attempts is now destroyed). The problem is that I cannot install to the end at all - no matter what I try:

1) Having the disk as a single FAT partition (made by a Win98 installation CD), it appears that the installer cannot create the correct partitions needed for Linux.

2) Having deleted the DOS partition with FDISK from Windows98 - which is like buying a completely new, unformatted HD from a store. But again, it cannot automatically set the partitions...

Is there a manual / instruction page somewhere how I should partition the disk manually (how to do it, and what sizes are recommended for each partition)?

Ubuntu :: Brightness Not Changing On Sony Vaio Cw Laptop?

Mar 21, 2010

I am having problems with the brightness control on my sony vaio laptop, at virst when i upgraded the driver for the VGA card the whole screen went blank, I had to port a bin file from windows and write my own EDID file to get it to work (nVidia GT 230M), but I am having problems with the brightness, although ubuntu does read the input from the keys (FN+...), the brightness refuses to change, adding the brightness applet to the taskbar does not work either. I really need to be able to change my brightness because the battery usage is off the charts.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Allocated Space On New Sony Vaio Laptop

Feb 24, 2010

I successfully before install Ubuntu on my last laptop along with windows vista and it was rather easy because ubuntu allowed me to partition the disk so simply. However, on my vaio, my whole hard disk is partition and there is no unallocated space. It will not allow me to partition the disk and when I boot up the ubuntu live cd to install, the partitioner doesn't look the same and I'm hesitant to make any changes because I'm afraid I'm going to damage my data. I have a 500GB HDD in which I want to use just 60GB for Ubuntu and the rest for Windows 7. Also, I'm running 64-bit Windows if that matters at all.

Ubuntu Installation :: Sony Vaio Z - Unable To Write Grub Loader On HD

Mar 27, 2010

I got a new Sony Vaio Z and try to install Ubuntu on it. The laptop has got two 64 GB SSDs setup as a RAID 0 array. [URL]. As the configuration is done in the BIOS, I assume it's hardware RAID. [URL]. The problem is that - no matter what I try - the installers are unable to write the GRUB loader on the hard disk. I tried both, standard and alternate installer (9.10 / 64 bit), and both failed at that point. Not a really error message, it just says "cannot write GRUB boot loader".

I also tried two different scenarios:
- Ubuntu beside Windows (shrinked the partition for that)
- Ubuntu on the empty RAID

SUSE / Novell :: Unable To Get PDF In Firefox In OpenSUSE

Jan 6, 2010

I've had this issue since OpenSUSE 10.5 and Firefox 2.x. Now I'm on OpenSUSE 11.2 and Firefox 3.5.6. Here's the issue: I log into various sites to get my bank statements, utility bills, etc. They are all in PDF, and they open up acrobat reader and from there I save the bill as a permanent record. The first one I open opens fine. Subsequent sessions with subsequent providers (banks, whatever) opens up a new window as if to show me the PDF, but no PDF is there. Status on the window shows "done." No error messages. I have to shut firefox down, restart, log in again, and then it downloads fine. It's getting annoying.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Installations On Sony Vaio CW

Jun 9, 2010

I've been trying to install Ubuntu 64bit on Sony Vaio CW and the Screen is 14 inch when I boot from CD it seems to work normal but after i select "Try Ubuntu without installing" or "Install Ubuntu" then the screen goes black like nothing happening but the CD runs for while then stop. Again I reboot to try again this time I press F6 then select "nomodeset" and it boots fine I was happy though, after installation success when I boot again WTF it goes black again and then I reboot and press "E" during the options that showing to select OS then I remove "Quit Splash".

I guess then I add "nomodeset" and control+X to boot, it works fine. So when I log in and of course I activate the Nvidia Graphic Driver then I reboot and WTF again the screen was out sync or something like the the screen didn't show properly. The Application menu normally is on the upper left of the screen but this time it was on the center of screen and the Shut down button came to the left side and i have to move the mouse cursor to the right and then it would appear on the left just like the resolution is to big for the screen.

Accidently ran rm -rf while the pwd was /home/user-name

Now I'm unable to run any command whatsoever as root, ls,vi,cnf whatever, they don't work.

However the commands work as normal user.

Ubuntu :: Sony Vaio VGN / Screen Is Too Bright

May 2, 2010

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ340E. I installed Ubuntu about 6 months ago and had a problem-free time with it. I then got busy with other stuff (house work, etc.) and hadn't worked on Ubuntu for about a month. Now I switch on my Vaio with Ubuntu and I find the screen is just too bright.Since 10.04 was just coming up, I thought this would be fixed when I update. I updated, but the screen is still too bright.

I searched the forum for answers and found only some pretty old threads which were about the Fn key combos (which, obviously, doesn't work), spicctrl, etc.So I followed the instructions here. I did just what Step 1: Checking for Module says, but Terminal just doesn't give any output.

General :: Switching From Vista - On Sony Vaio ?

Dec 18, 2010

I have decided to switch from Vista to Linux on my Sony Vaio and wanted to know the best way to do it.

Basically i want to set my laptop like this because i want to get involved with wireless security testing.

I am thinking about taking the Backtrack wifu course http://www.offensive-security.com/on...backtrack-wifu.

Now obviously it seems i will need Backtrack, so what is the correct way to go about installing? Should i try and purchase a cd to install or is there better ways?

Cannot wait to move away from Vista. I think it has been making me ill. ps.. i also want to learn BASH and Perl, so that is basically going to be the setup.

SUSE :: Unable To Use MS VX-3000 Webcam With 11.2

Jun 2, 2010

I have installed the gspca2 driver for my webcam, but in kopete, I still get only a wierd multi colored/scrambled thick line across the top of the webcam screen and the rest remains blank. This is in Kopete.In Kopete, under video, under device, under input, it shows "sonixj" and the device is "USB camera". I know the webcam works in Win7/Vista/XP, but I am trying to get away from using those OSs.

I had tried the 1 click SuSE install of the gspca2 driver but it wouldn't complete the install. Doing it in YaST directly seemed to work but I still get the same bad screen when using the webcam, which has it's LED light up.

Debian Configuration :: 5.04 - Wireless Drivers For Sony Vaio?

Apr 17, 2010

I used to have an Ubuntu-Windows partition, but (what do you know?) Windows Crashed, and wouldn't boot anymore. So I reinstalled Windows, deleting my Ubuntu partition. Instead of reinstalling Ubuntu afterwards, I decided to give Debian a try. So here I am. I can't find drivers for my wireless network however, and it's quite annoying to have to plug in the Wired Connection with which I am writing this.

My main specs are:
Sony Vaio VGN-CS390J
Debian 5.04
AMd64

Debian Configuration :: NO SOUND In Sony VAIO VPCF12E1E

Aug 31, 2010

Ethernet, bluetooth and video work fine. I also managed to get the wireless card working by installling "firmware-iwlwifi". I can make the touchpad work sending to the kernel the parameter "i8042.nopnp" at boot time(grub), but then I get the computer frozen for a second every five second so I decided to use a usb mouse, until I get another fix.As you can see I can use the laptop except that...I have no sound at all, I can only hear something using headphones.I've been searching the web but the only thing I found is a fix in ubuntu using some kernel-modules from backports repository, but can't install them on debian.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.3 - Microphone Not Working On Sony Vaio

Dec 9, 2010

Other than several other problems on my new Sony VAIO I solved with workarounds (it's a terrible machine for working with Linux especially for NVIDIA drivers) I cannot make my microphone working.

Code:
malvasia:~ # uname -a
Linux malvasia.yacme 2.6.34.7-0.5-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-10-25 08:40:12 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
malvasia:~ # aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC275 Analog [ALC275 Analog] .....

I've found a patch to make mic on ALC275 working but I don't know if it's applicable to 11.3 kernel nor if there is a easier solution to adopt.
