Slackware :: Unable To Get Hdd Detection With ASUS M2A-MX

Sep 13, 2010

i got into serious harddrive detecting issues after an upgrade from slackware 12.2 to 13.0, it simply doesnt seem to find them anymore. ide drive giving lost interrupts and sata drive not being found. when i boot a slackware 13.1 install dvd i get the same issue. but when i boot a 12.1 slackware install dvd it works fine.

to me it seems that something changed in the kernel between these releases which causes this, but i wouldn't know what and how to fix it. i tried searching here and googling but probably not using the correct keyboards. anyone got a clue what to try? i find it hard to believe that this mobo / chipset (which arent the latest but not that old or weird either i believe) arent supported anymore.

Slackware :: Automating Raid Failure Detection On Slack 13.1?

May 1, 2011

I just setup sendmail on my server to send emails and it works, now I would like to be able to get an email from mdadm if sometjhing was going wrong. I imagine most raid users have this feature setup.

Right now, I have 7 raid arrays and mdadm starts at boot time. Until now, I used Mr. Goblin's script ( (thanks Mr Goblin!) to monitor my arrays.

The script is started at boot time from rc.local. I created a small script in /usr/bin that send the following command to rc.mdadm giving me the status of the arrays:

/etc/rc.d/rc.mdadm status

and it works fine, but this requires me probing the arrays manually by calling the script from the command line. I would like to automate probing every 10 minutes or whatever and if a fault has been detected, I get an email.

Slackware :: Asus PCE-N13 Can't See Router

Jul 2, 2011

I installed Slackware 13.37 a few days ago. It's not my first time but I have never setup a wireless connection in Linux before. I am pretty sure drivers for my network card, Asus PCE-N13, came ready to go with Slackware. After 2 days of reading guides about how to properly setup my rc.inet1.conf and rc.wireless.conf files I installed wicd today and it can't see my router.

Slackware :: Asus Ul80j Suspend To Ram Fix?

Mar 30, 2011

I've been searching LQ and google for a fix to get suspend to ram working on my asus ul80j (I had already added the resume=/dev/sda2 (my swap partiton) to lilo, but machine wasn't suspending properly (hd still whirring) and would not resume at all. The fix for the asus a52 and asus k52 documented at this thread worked on my asus ul80j as well! All I had to do was save the following code as /etc/pm/sleep.d/20_custom_ehci_hcd :

# File: "/etc/pm/sleep.d/20_custom-ehci_hcd".
case "${1}" in
# Unbind ehci_hcd for first device 0000:00:1a.0:

Ubuntu Networking :: Hardware Detection In Ubuntu Vs Slackware?

Feb 4, 2011

This post has two parts. First the part that might look a little misplaced on this forum, but which I hope someone may still know a thing or two about: I have installed Slackware (alongside Ubuntu and Windows 7) to have something to play around with and hopefully learn a thing or two. I am able to get KDE up and running, but in the interfaces list under network preferences, neither my wireless nor my wired network card shows up. Both cards show up correctly in lspci:


This challenge has caused me to wonder about the second part of this post. What is it that makes Ubuntu good at hardware detection? I know the Linux kernel should detect most hardware, but if that was the whole truth, there would be no difference between distributions in this aspect, correct?

Slackware :: Installing 13.1 On ASUS Eee PC With USB Stick From Win7

Nov 17, 2010

I have recently bought a Asus Eee PC Seashell 1005PX and it came with Windows 7 Starter Edition, it doesn't have any CD/DVD so I'm gonna/have been trying for some time now to install Slackware 13.1 from my 8GB USB stick. I downloaded the 13.1 ISO file and used Unetbootin to transfer it to my USB stick. I get stuck in the setup in the setup when I am to select the SOURCE DESTINATION. I've tried /dev/sdb1 which is my USB, also i've tried using mount into different directories but i'm new to Linux so that didn't go very well..

Some of you have recommended Alien BOB's guide but I have read the first parts of it. Is it really for people with Windows OS? It's a bunch of Linux CLI code and programs.. ?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 On Asus Eee/901 - Unable To Do Updates

Jul 15, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 on Asus Eee/901. I am in Italy running through the college network proxy. I have defined the system-wide proxy and everything looks good. However none of the Linux software packages update (Synaptic, Ubuntu centre and for that matter, Thunderbird) they seem to ignore the Proxy and its required authentication - needless to say, I cannot update/download important packages/updates. System Proxy seems OK because Firefox is working but that's the only one.

Slackware :: Asus EeePC 1005PE Brightness Not Working Properly

Jan 27, 2011

I've been through a few versions of Slackware on my Asus EeePC and I must, despite that fact that every has been having lots of trouble (or so I've heard) configuring Linux on it, it hasn't been all that bad for me. One problem that continues to persist is that the brightness setting is weird. It doesn't like to display on full brightness most the time, and when I try to change the brightness (function keys or OS function), it goes through 3 'mini-cycles'.

I've tried the Alien eeepc-acpi-scripts slackbuild a while back and it didn't work for me before. While searching for another solution, I found this thread on the Ubuntu forums: [URL]. But the major fix that seems to be working for them involves editing GRUB (which I don't have). Another post suggests simply updating the BIOS, but the BIOS updater is a Windows executable, and I'm not quite sure how he pulled it off in Linux.

Fedora :: Unable To Use The Screensaver In Asus 27" Monitor

Jan 27, 2011

Just upgraded to a super sexy Asus 27" LED monitor. It's awesome, however ther are a few quirks I'm wondering if I just have to live with or if they're fixable. These may not be directly related to the monitor...hence posting here rather than hardware.Specs: Asus 27" LED VE278Q monitor. Nvidia graphics card. Dell 8100 w/ 8GB ram, 64-bit. Fedora 13 running Gnome.

The first quirk is that I have a VNC window open almost all the time and if I leave my cursor on the VNC window, the screensaver won't come on, even if no action has happened on the keyboard or mouse (or in the VNC window). It would be nice if the screensaver worked.

The second problem is that when I'm using the keyboard and/or mouse in the VNC window, apparently, the screensaver doesn't realize the keyboard is being used...and the moment I switch to a different window, up comes the screensaver.

I'm having what I think is a documented hardware issue probably related to the Nvidia driver: at infrequent times, often when I'm using GIMP or other graphics-intensive program, the screen will flicker and/or go completely black for a split second. Distracting as all hell, but not a show stopper. It does not appear to happen when I'm using the web or doing other non-graphic intensive stuff, so I'm guessing this is not the monitor itself, but rather the card or the drivers for it.

Slackware :: Eth0 No Longer Recognized After Upgrade And ASUS Mobo Replace In -current

Jan 27, 2010

My office has a box which is, by necessity, dual-boot WinXP/Slack. The Slackware I'm running there is -current, all great and fine. Until now... It turned out that my mobo, an ASUS P5KPL-CM, died after a power surge. Since the XP needs software activation, we replaced it for an exact copy of the mobo. After the change the box worked fine in XP, and I was able to connect to the network via the Ethernet interface. BTW, the Slackware version is Slackware-current, updated as of the Jan 9 update (after that I was no longer able to connect to the Net with Slack). However, in Slackware there was a problem: eth0 was no longer recognized. Using /sbin/ifconfig only listed the lo (loopback) interface. The lspci output is:

CentOS 5 Hardware :: 5.6, 64 Bit And ASUS K52J - Unable To Build The Kernel?

May 19, 2011

djmack-5/19/2011-I have purchased an ASUS K52J (intel i7) laptop. I have installed Centos 5.5 (64 bit) from CDs. The I got all the updates and it's now up to 5.6. I have two problems.

(problem-1) - Using the GUI (System->Administration->Hardware) I can get to a Device Manager screen. It shows a JMC250 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller. Using the GUI (System->Administration->Network) I can only see the wireless (wlan0) as configured and active. The ethernet card is not seen as ether 0. I've seen there are downloads to solve this problem, however I've been 100% unable to do and or understand them. I don't know how to build the kernel and I don't have any source code. I only have the binaries (I think). Is there a version of the kernel that I can put on CDs that has understanding of the ether card I referenced above?

P.S. I've downloaded a binary fix and it says it needs 20 or so dependencies (I have zero idea how to get those).

P.S. I've downloaded a source fix and I couldn't get it to install (I'm not a linux kernel build knowlegable person). I don't have the source either.

(problem-2):As stated above I need direct (RJ45) access to the laptop. I currently have the wireless card working but I have no idea how to get this to work with httpd, ssh, scp.I can access things via a web browser right on the laptop. I cannot access this laptop via a web browser from any other box. I cannot access this box via ssh or scp.I disabled the firewall and I disabled the SELinux security.I am stumped as to why I cannot see this ASUS laptop via httpd and/or ssh/scp.I can ssh and scp to other linux servers but these servers cannot ssh or scp into this laptop.

Ubuntu Networking :: Asus EEE 1001P - Unable To Use Wireless And Mobile Broadband

Feb 2, 2010

I just got a new Asus Eee 1001P, and the wireless isn't working at all. I had an Asus EEE 1005HA before that and since both use the AR8132 network card I hoped it would be the same problem as with that, where installing the backports fixed the problem. However, that doesn't do anything. With the 1005HA the connection was only flaky and disconnected a lot, but the 1001P doesn't find any networks to connect to at all. Also, the mobile wireless will connect only once and after disconnecting every attempt to reconnect ends in that connection symbol spinning wildly until I tell the network manager to disconnect. On Kubuntu it doesn't even connect once.I never had that problem with the 1005.

Slackware :: Framebuffer - I915 - And Current And Asus Eeepc - Halfway Through Boot Time The Screen Goes Blank

Mar 10, 2010

Got an Asus eeepc 900a. Runs Intel 915 graphics. Upgraded to slackware current last week. X would not start. Based on info here, I reverted back to earlier libdrm and xf86-video-intel. That got it working again.

Updated Slackware current again today. I think I got a new kernel. Now, halfway through boot time, the screen goes blank, then comes back and the font is tiny. Gone into framebuffer mode. If I start X, it just freezes. Nothing but a reboot will get out of it.

I have vga=normal in lilo.conf, but I read that this is no longer used. I can find no way to turn off framebuffer mode. From other threads here, I have tried append="i915.modeset=1" in lilo.conf. Has no effect.

I could revert Slackware to 13.0 from current, and that would make the eeepc useful again. Is there anything else I should try?

General :: Installed ASUS HD4670, Now Unable To Install ANY Debian Due To Low Memory Corruption?

Feb 1, 2010

I have a desktop PC which initially had the Intel D946gzis mobo, its chipset as video controller, some RAM and so. There I installed Debian without a problem alongside WindowsXP.

I've bought an ASUS HD 4670 video card, installed it on the PC and now the installed Debian does not work, while the Ubuntu live CD refuses to run no matter if I set acpi, apic on or off... it throws me some low memory corruption at position just like shown here. With normal configuration, Debian throws kernel panic (keyboard lights blinking). Anyone have faced this before? Ideas? Thanks!! (meanwhile, debian hides in a virtualbox :'( )

Edited: Tried Ubuntu 9.10 x64 (due to the fact i've a core2duo at 2GHz) and it throws a kernel-panic to me (flashing caps and num LEDs). On screen, can be read different lines with things like:

[ 1.957161] [] rb_erase+0xd6/0x160
[ 1.957266] [] page_fault+0x25/0x30

Could it be something about this new video card having ddr3?

General :: Red Hat New Hardware Detection ?

Jan 20, 2010

If i install new hardware using a vmguest or physical system How can I detect it.


In AIX we just run cfgmgr -v. Is there a similar command in Red Hat?

I am guessing a reboot will pick it up if the device drivers are common enough and in the kernel already.

I want to know how to do this dynamically with the system on-line if possible.
