I am trying to install Debian Lenny (64 bit) on my brand new Toshiba laptop (intel i3, 3 GB RAM) and for some reason the installer cannot detect the ethernet card. This is the error message I get:"No Ethernet card was detected. If you know the name of the driver needed by your Ethernet card, you can select it from the list."And then there's a list which is quite long -- and I cannot replicate it here. But I want to know why the installer cannot find the ethernet card on its own or find the appropriate driver. In any case how can I fix this problem?
i have opensuse 11.3 (64-bit) installed. kde version. my sound card is a creative labs sound blaster x-fi xtreme audio, pcie interface. i am able to listen to cd music without any problems but i am unable to get streaming audio when i visit any internet radio site, videos, yahoo!tv, etc. etc. for instance, when i visit videos, the video part is ok but i cannot hear anything through the speakers. something similar happens when for instance i go to [url] and select any of the music channels. a new window pops up but the music never even starts to stream.
i know for a fact that both sound card and speakers work fine because i've tested them with windows xp. so there must be some setting in opensuse that i've missed. the weird part is that i can listen to music cds without any problems...
Ever since I switched from windows I miss the fact that gaming is not all that well on linux. I think that is pretty unfortunate. The games I'd like to play are team fortress 2 and a bit of civilization 4. Luckily for me, these games are known to run good through wine. But the bad thing for me is that I had an old ATI card and I was stuck with the bad driver that caused all these games to crash. So I had it with this. Each time I wanted to play I needed to restart to windows. So I saved some money and yesterday I bought a geforce 640 GTX.
When I boot up the computer for the first time with my card it all seems to work well. It just did not detect my new card automatically. And now I have to confess I'm not all that experienced with ubuntu and getting some things done. But I thought, ah well.. 10.10 is coming up, lets update to the release candidate and see how things are going from there. A new card and new version of ubuntu, woohoo! Now after the update it did detect the driver and it seems to run pretty well, but I do have a few problems.
I have a small second screen to extend my primary desktop. In the NVIDIA X Server Settings and under the tab 'X Server Display Configuration' I have the second screen in 'TwinView' and it seems to work well. Untill I restart my screen that is. After a restart I have to keep activating my second screen. I was kind of hoping it'd save the settings.
The other problem is what I get when playing team fortress 2. I'm not sure this is the right place to ask here, or I should better head to the wine forums or something, but I do hope to fix this. When I have the second screen enabled, and I'd like to start team fortress 2 it gives a warning: 'Failed to create D3D devide'. Doing some googling, it seems to be a resolution problem. After I disable the second screen, it works again.
Then with the second screen disabled it seems to finally run. But unfortunately after 5/10 min the I get kicked out of the server with the message 'Disconnected: Client timed out'. I did some googling arond and there's not much results relating to wine/ubuntu, but most windows users seem to have this problem because of a firewall. Now, I'm using ubuntu and not using a firewall as far as I know (there's probably some build in, I just take that as it is ). But maybe anyone here knows how to fix this and I do get to finally play team fortress 2 on ubuntu?
Preliminary checks of sound level settings and obvious dumb stuff but there is still no sound. The problem seems to be that the system does not recognize the existence of the sound card and insists on using alternative audio devices.
I installed a sound card but when I go to System->Preferences->Sound and go to Hardware it's not showing anything at all. If I boot from the Live CD then it will show the card and it works. How can I make my Linux installation detect this card? I was thinking that I could somehow copy the necessary files from the Live CD to make this work, but maybe there's an easier way.
I own a ubuntu-server (2.6.35-22-server x64) - a home router / NAS / etc assembled at the mini-itx motherboard with no attached keyboard / display.The problem is that the system does not detect the occurrence of SD-card in a USB-card reader. Card reader is normally detected and visible in the system.When I insert SD-card in cardreader, in "dmesg" and, accordingly, "udevadm monitor" does not display any events.If reboot with connected SD, everything works fine, but, of course, there is no event when removing SD.On the forum topics if problems arise, it is only with automounting. But it's not. I do not have events from kernel, that he discovered the SD-card.In the desktop version there is no problem.I installed the generic kernel; comparing kernels configurations for desktop/server versions, comparing the output "udevadm monitor" at the time when I inserted the SD-card on desktop/server, etc. - useless.I don't have more ideas. I don't understand something. Probably there is no package.Almost ready to give up, put the desktop version and delete unnecessary.On desktop versions missing events displayed as follows (the output "udevadm monitor" when inserting SD-card):
so, when i first got my laptop it came with vista and the ethernet worked fine, then when I decided to install Karmic about 9 months ago it still worked fine. After a while the update for lucid came out so I upgraded to that and then the ethernet started getting buggy. It would only work about half the time that i wanted it too and the other half of the time it would just stare at me and not move anywhere. So along with a couple other bugs I decided to format my harddrive and downgrade back to karmic and await the 10.10 release. unfortunatly my ethernet woes carried with me and they still would only show up on occasion. then about half way through my time with karmic round 2 it stopped altogether, and with the upgrade back to lucid it hasn't seemed to solve itself.
I ran through ifconfig -a, lspci and sudo ifup -a but they all tell me that the device doesn't exist.
I'm using Xubuntu Natty at the moment, on an Acer Aspire 5739G. Figured I would go to Realtek's site and get the most recent soundcard driver, since the built-in subwoofer has never worked on Linux for me.
I used the automatic install script, then when it tried to probe for other devices, suddenly I had no sound.
I'm currently getting
Code: korin@corrosion:~$ aplay -l aplay: device_list:240: no soundcards found...
I tried reinstalling the ALSA driver, but to no avail. I now have no sound, and no idea a) why this failed, and b)
i install devian squeeze with the netinstall iso, all work fine except for the auto-detect of my ethernet card.i have a mother asrock p4i45gv with an onboard ethernet card realtek rtl8139/810x family fast ethernet NIC.i try everithing, the ifconfig shows only lo, but ifconfig -a shows a eth0 any ideas?
I have two graphics cards in my computer. One is a crappy built-in nVidia GeForce 6150 SE, and the other is a high-end (as of 2008) GeForce in the 8000 range. I would like to use the latter, but I can't get anything to detect it. Testing which is in operation is easy: they have separate video outputs. I've tried changing the BIOS settings, but to no avail. I'm stumped. Could it be that my other card is dead? How could I test it? I'm fairly certain that it worked back when I used Windows, as I remember having to use my DVI-to-VGA converter (the other card's outputs are all DVI).
I recently purchased an MSI A5000 notebook, but regrettably it happens to use an obscure branded wireless card that's given me quite a bit of frustration to get working. I do have a bit of history behind this card that might help to solve this problem. First of all the card is a Ralink rt3090STA, and the manufacturer does provide a linux driver for this card (available here)
I was using Ubuntu 10.04 32 bit until last week, when I decided that I would like to try using a 64 bit system. I would prefer to use fedora instead of Ubuntu for the time being. Ubuntu had some major problems recognizing the card for some time before I was able to get it to work. The process I used to resolve the issue on my Ubuntu system has not proven successful on Fedora 13 x64, and I would like any help I can get to try to resolve this problem.
I installed the OpenSUSE 11 on my IBM T43 laptop. After installation finish I found the Yast can't detect the integrated ethernet cardBroadcomCorporationNetXtremeBCM5751MGigabitEthernet PCI Express(rev 11).
I am running Ubuntu 9.1 on my Gateway M305CRV and love it . . HOWEVER:Less I am plugged directly into the internet with Ethernet cable . . I have not internet. I purchased this laptop just prior to when internal wireless cards/ modems were standard . . thus I have an external Dell brand (True Mobile 1300-802.11 b/g PC Card) wireless card.Ubuntu does not seem to automatically detect it and I dont see
My laptop is supposed to have a 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless network card, but I can't find it. I've run lspci -nn without seeing anything containing. 802.11 in the output. Moreover, when I look into hardinfo->network->interfaces I only find the wired connection. Could anyone please tell me if these programs find all devices or if there could still be a wireless card here?
I have a sata card in my RHEL5 server that is not working. It has a 1.5tb hard drive attached to it that I would like to use. It seems that the 2.6.18 kernel did not detect and use it by default. I was able to find some info about the
lspci | grep VIA 03:06.0 RAID bus controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6421 IDE RAID Controller (rev 50)
I just got myself a Dell Inspiron 1440. And decided to install my favorite distro Debian. I got the installation to go with no issue and all seems to be working fine. However the wireless isn't working. NetworkManager doesnt even detect a wireless card. I followed the instructions here and installed the b43-fwcutter and then issued the modprobe b43 and modprobe b43legacy commands. Then I issued the iwconfig command and this was the output.
