Ubuntu Installation :: Disabling Framebuffer In Installer

Jul 12, 2010

I am trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 in text mode on a VIA EPIA-M motherboard with VT8623 VGA that gives a distorted screen when using the framebuffer. I used to be able to disable the framebuffer during installation by passing debian-installer/framebuffer=false to the kernel, and the screen would be fine. However, with Ubuntu 10.04, I still get a distorted screen even with debian-installer/framebuffer=false.

Ubuntu Installation :: Don't Use Framebuffer

Feb 12, 2010

My monitor recent died and I'm using an old CRT as a replacement for now. I get an error when Ubuntu starts saying it could not find a framebuffer compatible device. It then gives me the option to boot into low res mode which I accept. Once I login, the display actually looks fine, but I would like to get rid of the error message.Anyone know how to remove framebuffer usage from the bootup process? A text display is fine. I looked in my xorg.conf, but I didn't find anything that I could tinker with.

Debian Configuration :: Disable Framebuffer After Squeeze 32bit Installation?

Apr 5, 2011

I'm installing a non-X server using squeeze 32bit netinst iso, expert installation. I don't know that I can specify "debian-installer/framebuffer=false" during the installation, after reboot I got a framebuffer display with console fonts smaller and fonts look like ubuntu. I search around I can edit GRUB config for the resolution items or disable framebuffer. How can I disable the framebuffer (use normal text system fonts) when booting in LILO?

I got everything installed and setuped, I don't want to re-install the OS again.

Ubuntu :: Disabling The Low Power Beep On Installation?

Mar 11, 2010

It is extremely load and aggravating. My version 9.10. I am have no other issues with the internal speaker besides the low power beep. I have tried: blacklist pcspkr in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf (actually was already done in 9.10) in gconf-editor gone to apps gnome-power manager, unchecked low power notification

gone to sound preferences muted alert volume. If this was a desktop i would just physically disable the internal speaker, but i don't want to open up my laptop do to possible difficulty of reassembly.

Ubuntu Installation :: Digikam - Disabling All The Repositories

Nov 7, 2010

I installed the PinguyOS version of Maverick, but even after disabling all the repositories that came with it I still couldn't get this to work. Therefore this must be a problem with Ubuntu 10.10 itself, however if this problem does exist is Ubuntu, I'm surprised these forums are flooded with complaints. I've searched them up and down and I found nothing. Anyway, the problem is that I can't install digikam, this is the error I get: The following packages have unmet dependencies.

digikam : Depends: kdebase-runtime but it is not going to be installed
Depends: kdepim-runtime but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libkde3support4 (>= 4:4.4.4) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libqt4-qt3support (>= 4:4.5.3) but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: kipi-plugins but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

The problem here seems to be that the kde libraries that come with ubuntu are version 4.5 for everything. And it seems digikam 1.4 is built against kde 4.4.

Fedora Installation :: Disabling Authentication ?

Aug 22, 2009

I just installed the new Fedora 11 and have used earlier versions in the past a few times before. I am trying to figure out if there is anyway to automatically allow root access to everything once an administrator logs in as admin. I am extremely tired of having to type in my password EVERY single time I want to do something. Especially having to use the terminal for something as simple as copying a file from one directory to another.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Framebuffer In PAL Mode On VGA?

Jan 11, 2011

I have ad724 chip from analog devices that converts VGA signal to composite video, but it requires input in PAL standart. Is it possible to change framebuffer resolution and synchronisation to achive PAL on RGB output? I have try to change this using fbset but there is no change of resolution. Grub runs kernel with framebuffer of 640x480 resolution and i'm able to watch videos using mplayer on cli ubuntu version, but i have problems with setting it up to PAL.Why fbset does not affect to current display?

PS. I have Intel Atom CPU with intel integrated graphics (maybe problem is here?)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.10 - Framebuffer In Console - Links2

Jan 16, 2011

Ubuntu 10.10 - Framebuffer in Console - links2

I've searched and searched and I cannot find the answer. I had links2 -g working in framebuffer in the last release, but in Ubuntu 10.10, I cannot get it to work.

Problem: I do NOT have any framebuffers. /dev/fb0 etc.

I have changed my console font size in grub2 to 640x480 and it works perfectly.

I believe I have all the required framebuffer files and libraries (libs) installed, yet I do NOT have any /dev/fb0 etc.

Hardware :: Ubuntu 9.10 SiS Video Framebuffer Error

Feb 13, 2010

I set my in-laws laptop up with Ubuntu 9.10 about a month ago as they were growing weary of XP. Everything has gone fine until the other night when my father in law was messing about in software store. He added a few packages, and deleted one by accident. He cant remeber what he deleted, or even which category it was from, but now the laptop crashes when try to start X.

Now when the laptop boots it shows xsplash then goes to a dialog screen which says :-(EE) open /dev/fb0:no such file or directory.Reconfigure does no good, but I can get logged in to text install.The laptop is an Acer Aspire 3630 and uses SiS graphics.I have tried googling to find an answer, but I am at a loss, is there any way to fix this? how would I go about re-installing the full xserver? can I re-install 9.10, but keep the user accounts?

CentOS 5 :: Can't Get Framebuffer On DomU

Mar 28, 2009

I installed Centos5.2 and have created 1 instance so far. It all works great, but when I created the new instance (using command line from ssh and "virt-install") it gave a message saying probing for video, not found, assuming headless and on I went with the install.

But now I have need for a framebuffer because I have a JBOSS/Java Captcha routine which throws an error if it can't use the X11 libraries or some such (I've resolved this before on a headless Amazon instance once by just running "Xorg"). But I can't run Xorg on my DomU because it can't find the fb device!

So, I searched around and did a makedev -d /dev/fb to create it, but it still doesn't work, because, I assume, the hardware isn't found anywhere. So... how do I get Xorg to work in this case? Or do I need to re-do the virt install and somehow force it to find video hardware (but how?)

Here is some salient output:

root@virty{/etc/X11}: uname -a
Linux virty 2.6.18-92.1.22.el5xen #1 SMP Tue Dec 16 12:26:32 EST 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Slackware :: Way To Use Graphic Driver In Framebuffer

Apr 29, 2011

I've just installed Slackware 13.37 x64.Right now, everything is fine! All hardware OK, sound OK, Network/WiFi OK, nVIDIA Proprietary drivers OK, KDE Composite OK, Desktop effects OK.But when initializing, the messages pass very slow!My lilo framebuffer settings are 1024x768x64 (Code 791, 317 in Hex), my Graphics card is an nVIDIA GeForce 9100 M G (256Mb), but yet, I can see it refreshing like an image loading in 56Kbps connection.
I really would like to use framebuffer during boot (Oh, come on... The little penguin is kinda neat :-), so I'll ask... Is there a way to use my graphic driver in framebuffer, or make it faster?

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Can't Find Partitions And XP-installation

Mar 15, 2010

The instaler doesnt find my partitions and the XP that is installed too! For some reasons i cannot delete the whole hdd... if i format the partition, where (i want to install ubuntu) with fat, the pc crashes during the installing process after the tastaturlayout question! if i try some other formats, the installer tells me, that there are no Operating Systems installed and the hdd is unpartitioned!

if i start ubuntu live from the cd, the system finds all partitions, but if i run cfdisk in a terminal, i get a fatal error (cannot open disk space)... My machine is a acer aspire 1694 WLMi (pretty old, but should be no problem), bios is up to date, Windows is XP home edition with SP3.

Debian Hardware :: Need To Force Kernel Framebuffer To 640x480

Jan 20, 2015

Some weeks ago i hacked a old NCR all in one computer and installed modern hardware inside it, also installed and old VGA 13" B/W monitor inside (supports 800x600 max)

Then installed debian 7 i386 the installer runs fine, the problem is that after finishing the installation the monitor goes out of sync, the kernel load the i915 module and go out of sync.

So I have to connect another modern monitor and blacklist the i915 module, then get back to the internal VGA monitor.now the system boot fine to the linux console on text mode.

I plan to use this system from text mode (no x windows), the problem i found is that because i blacklisted the i915 module i don't have a /dev/fb0 so the console software i like to run like dosbox or scummvm canno't start because the framebuffer is missing.

What i need is to find a way to force the i915 module to a low resolution (640x480). This is what i tried.

vga=ask (or other options) this option is completele ignored by the kernel seem to by deprecated
passing grub options to the i915 module like video=VGA-1:1280x800 or modeset=1 also are ignored.

Theres some way to do this ?

General :: Remote Login To Display Framebuffer Device

Apr 16, 2010

I hope this is not a totally ridiculous question. I use putty often to remotely connect to my laptop at home. I recently learned about the Linux framebuffer, and was curious if there was a tool like putty that would let me remotely connect to my laptop but use the /dev/fb0 device for forwarding graphics. Sort of like a vnc or X11 forwarding, but instead of using X, gdm, kdm etc. we use the framebuffer.

Software :: One Command Line To Rule Them All (living Without X Via The Framebuffer)

Feb 26, 2010

I am a card-carrying member of the Church of the Command Line. I would love to do away with X altogether, and just use the virtual consoles. What's stopping me is, of course, media. Images, movies and web browsing. I know about the framebuffer, and it seems promising but still kind of complicated. From what I've read it looks like I'd have to recompile my kernel everytime I wanted to change the background image. Not a showstopper, but more work than I would like.

Anyway, this post is about the possibilities, and hopefully some hints on how to get started. I know images are possible, and that there are codecs for mplayer to output to the framebuffer. What about web browsing? I've gotten into my gmail via elinks before.. although I can't remember if I was using the standard view or basic HTML.. probably basic HTML. Are things like inline images, javascript, embedded video and flash even theoretically possible in a console browser at this point? Or am I just talking fantasy here?

And, any guidance on getting started would be most appreciated, especially with background images. It looks like mplayer just needs the right codec and it'll work (correct me if I'm wrong please).. so that doesn't seem too bad. But the background images seem kind of involved. The only eye candy I even remotely want on my screen is a nice background image with the text floating on top. How can I accomplish this via the framebuffer?

[Edit: also, I should have made the title more descriptive, but apparently I can't edit that ]

Programming :: Copying A Binary Image File To The Framebuffer?

Jul 14, 2010

I'm running Linux version on an ARM9 and can successfully copy directly into the framebuffer using the command:

cat /usr/myfile.bin >/dev/fb0

I converted myfile.bin from a 640 x 480 x 24 bmp.

What I'd like to do is to have the ability to dump .bin image files directly into the framebuffer from a C program without shelling out to a cat command.

Slackware :: Intel Framebuffer In -Current Does Not Honor Vga=normal?

Mar 3, 2010

I am using the most recent -current (that fixes the libpng "ratness" described in the ChangeLog 8-) and the Intel Framebuffer setup is annoying me. I specify vga=normal in LILO and to my knowledge I am not asking Intel Framebuffer modules to load at boot (and intelfb is blacklisted).

It's annoying because it makes the text microscopic. However, the machine works great in -Current so I can't complain. Graphics work fine and so does X, it's just annoying.

This is my Sony Vaio VGN-C140G detailed here: url

I had tried previously blacklisting inteldrmfb as well (the -Current release right before the libpng fix) and that made no difference.

I found all binaries with "intel" in their name and read the manual pages but didn't find anything useful for possibly manually setting the mode back to something equivalent to vga=normal.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Does Not See Windows Installation?

May 3, 2010

I have three physical drives:

Drive 0: Used for paging file in windows and general temp file storage
Drive 1: Media storage
Drive 2: Windows installation

When booting off the Ubuntu 10.04 disc and running the installer, it gets up to the partition step and doesn't find my Windows installation (for the automatic partitioning and such) and lists Drive 0 as the drive it will install to. I really want it to see my Windows install and create a partition on that same drive. Can anyone help me in getting the installer to see the Windows installation?

OpenSUSE Install :: SuSE-Kernel Ignores Framebuffer Disable Via Vga=0?

May 6, 2011

Kernel parameter vga=0 or vga=normal does not work as expected - First it works as expected text mode resolution is 80x25, but after some seconds the kernel, or the initramdisk does switch resolution of console again! I hate to say but it looks like OpenSuSe (again) thinks it is more clever than the user.Since rmmod radeon in runlevel 3 says "ERROR: Module radeon is in use", I do think that somehow SuSe ignores my vga=0 ... Is it the kernel or the ramdisk, I do not know where to search, since the parameter vga=0 is accepted and used in the beginning - it switch again after "doing fast boot" or 1-2 lines later..

Slackware :: 13.1 Nvidia Framebuffer Woes - Blank Screen After Lilo

Jun 9, 2010

Just upgraded my system from 13.0 to 13.1 Most things went pretty smoothly, but I tried 'startx' before the post-upgrade/config reboot and the system hung - "time to upgrade my video drivers", I thought. Upgraded to Nvidia 195.36.15*. X works perfectly, and a modprobe shows the 'nvidia' module loaded. So far so good.

However, when I try to use any vesa modes in lilo, I get a blank screen after the BIOS check and the system hangs - even toggling numlock on or off won't work... So I can only boot up in text mode. This makes me unhappy, partially because I like penguins, but also because it is an absolute insult to my new (old) monitor. I thought this could be to do with the nouveau conflicts reported by -current users some days ago, but the respective blacklist file is present so I'm stuck as to what to do... *I've tried 195.36.15, 195.36.24 and the latest 2xx beta drivers. All exhibit the same behaviour.

EDIT - forgot to post my video card specs. It's an 8500gt w/ 256mb, 128-bit DDR3.

At that point I abort the installation process.Can anyone advise me how to proceed from this point. I am an old MSoft OS user from way back - I started when DOS was all that there was.
