Ubuntu :: Karmic Installs Works Fine, But XP Has No Network - No Sound - Poor Graphics

Feb 25, 2010

I've just installed Karmic 9.10 to a new 500GB sata in a friends PC and it boots and runs fine; internet and everything just works. Just reinstalled XP-SP3 to old 80GB pata drive in same PC, it boots ok, but has no sound, poor graphics and network is limited to 1394 - no ethernet.

I built this PC about 3 years ago and it had been running XP with SP2 then SP3 installed, and everything worked fine. So over the past day I have installed XP-SP3 (slipstreamed disc) in it 3 times now, then went back and tried XP-SP2 (earlier slipstreamed disc) twice with same result - no ethernet, poor graphics, no sound?

But it all works fine in Karmic?

I ran Karmic's disk utilities (Palimsest) on the old 80GB and it tested fine, no problems at all.

PC comprises Gigabyte M55plus-S3G m/board, AMD 3800+ 2.4Ghz CPU, 1 GB RAM and a 64MB NVidia graphics card (can't recall model)

Is it possible MS built 'crippleware' in to XP, or could there be a hardware problem that Karmic didn't detect (doubt it)

Karmic is going to be the main OS now, so I don't think the loss of XP is a problem, but friend still wanted to be able to boot XP, even though XP is installed in Virtualbox in Karmic (I did this by importing a previously saved XP 'appliance').

Fedora :: Sound Distorted In F12 - Works Fine In F11

Nov 19, 2009

New build to F12. Sound was fine in F11. Now, massive distortion. I have tried every possible permutation of settings. With the main volume control in the top taskbar, there are two positions of level setting where the audio drops to a normal level and sounds OK but any application changing the level or starting to use the Pulseaudio changes the level and its loud and massively distorted again.

In the Pulseaudio manager->sink->alsaoutput.pci-0000-00-11.5.analog-stereo -> properties-> show volume meter, the audio is always maxed out in level. I have tried everything, its unworkable right now. Its possible to start alsamixer from terminal and adjust settings for good audio but any future change reverts to distortion. All changes in Pulseaudio Dev mgr or vol control etc change the audio as they should but do not affect the problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound In 10.10 - Audio Works Fine In Win7 Boot

Nov 25, 2010

To start off, I am about 3 days into my new ubuntu operating system. I am a complete newbie, but i have picked up alot in the last couple days. My sound was previously working, but the microphone was glitching when using skype. After running a bunch of different commands in terminal that were posted on forums from all over the internet, I rebooted my computer to find no sound. I have searched the forums again and tried many different command lines in terminal to no avail. My system setup is found here: [URL]

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Network Works Fine On XP / Ubuntu / 11.1 But Not For 11.2

Mar 30, 2010

On my Acer netbook (AOA-150-1635) the wireless works fine with WinXP, Ubuntu, and used to work with Suse 11.1. I replaced the Suse 11.1 with a clean network install of Suse 11.2. I couldn't get the wireless to work and did another network install using the wireless. When the install was completed I could not get the wireless to work with Suse 11.2. When I run the "collectNWData.sh" it shows--

!!! CND0120E: Network card wlan0 has no IP address
wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning : Network is down

[code].....

I looked up error CD0120E and changed the network devices setup to "traditional". The wireless "scan" picked up the routers and I added the encryption keys. Still no joy. I ran "collectNWData.sh" again and it said it is better to use the Network Manager.

!!! CND0180I: The system can't ping external IP address 195.135.220.3
!!! CND0150E: There might be a problem with the default gateway definition 10.1.1.1 on interface eth0

[code]....

Going back to Yast, Network Devices, I set Network Manager. The result is that it is back to the beginning with "collectNWData.sh" giving the original error.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Can't Connect To WEP Network, WPA Works Fine?

Sep 2, 2011

I am unable to connect to a WEP-protected network. the Network manager log shows either a DHCP timeout, or a failure to associate. (attached below).Changing to WPA is not an option, as the network is not controlled by me. This is with the rt61pci driver for a Ralink 2500 series chipset.(Rosewill RNX-G300EX card)Manually forcing an IP does not result in a connection either. This is with the latest OpenSuSE 11.4, all patches applied. Router is a D-Link DIR-613, and I know the passphrase I'm using is correct because it connects both on my Android (what else?) phone, and my lappy when I boot XP.


Sep 2 11:12:02 Core2Duo-2400 NetworkManager[2160]: <info> (wlan0): supplicant connection state: associating -> associated
Sep 2 11:12:02 Core2Duo-2400 NetworkManager[2160]: <info> (wlan0): supplicant connection

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Karmic: Sound Works For Root But Not For User

Feb 7, 2010

I cannot find a post that matches this scenario...the id created during the install (from CD) of Karmic has fully usable sound. However, users created from the Users and Groups app do not.

I have made sure that all users are defined to the audio, pulse, pulse-audio, and pulse-rt groups. No luck.

I have followed every step I have read having to do with the alsamixer. No luck.

I have verified that alsa and linux itself are at the latest versions.

OpenSUSE Network :: WiFi Internet Works Fine But Limited Connectivity Elsewhere?

Feb 22, 2010

I'm using 11.2 with KDE.

I can connect to the Internet on my WLAN just fine (using Opera) and can dload torrent files (using the same).

However, I have had trouble accessing some community repositories in the past, cannot synchronise with an NTP server (annoying since my battery is low and time and date are reset most reboots) and cannot use the lyrics function or Wikipedia function in Amarok. Nor can I connect to the net using Firefox (though conqueror works just fine...) I cannot download torrents on KTorrent either.

It seems that there is some sort of 'permission'/connectivity issue.

OpenSUSE Network :: Can't Browse Internet At University / Works Fine In Windows

Mar 30, 2011

I'm not able to connect to my university's internet facilities under openSUSE 11.4. I have been able to connect in the past and I am still able to connect in Windows 7.When I try to connect to the university WiFi, a valid IP address is assigned to me and the gateway address appears to be correct, so I don't see a problem in the DHCP negotations. Same with my university's Ethernet: I get a valid IP address, but I can't connect to the internet.When I browse to any site with Chromium/Chrome/ Firefox/lynx/curl, the page is stuck at "Sending request". I have tried disabling my firewall - that didn't solve anything.I don't know what else I can try and the campus' network administrators are puzzled. How can I resolve my issue?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 - Graphics And Sound Works But Crappy

Nov 11, 2010

every time i watch a video at ....., or use audacious to listen to music (or instead use grooveshark) the sound jumps forward automatically for some strange reason.

The other problem is the graphics. Everytime i enter a website i see the graphics but pixelated. At 100%. Well. i don't see all images or banners like this, just a few. (i.e:Google logo, flickr logo).

im using a laptop. Acer 5735Z. Mobile Intel Graphics Media Acelerator 4500MM

Ubuntu :: KUbuntu 10.04 Installs Fine, But Hangs On Next Boot?

Jul 5, 2010

coming from the Windows world recently decided to give Linux a try and with it, she decided to go with KUbuntu. I had her go at it under VMWare so she could have something to fall back on while learning Linux. Problem is after installing KUbuntu we can no longer get back into it as the system locks up while it is trying to boot. All that is seen on the screen is the KUbuntu bootup logo screen and it stays there.

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 Upgrade To KDE 4.3.5 Says Failed - But Installs Just Fine?

Feb 15, 2010

OpenSuse and rpm. Been using Debian for 7 years, so be gentle. I upgrade KDE 4.3.1 to 4.3.5 through the one-click install. After confirming some actions due to dependencies the install runs and in the end it said it failed to install a bunch of packages. These packages installed just fine and everything works as it should.

I was wondering if this happens more often, as it makes me kinda nervous if the installer warns me? Perhaps even more if it warns about things that aren't correct.

Hardware :: Poor Graphics Performance With 64 MB Card / What To Do?

May 4, 2010

I have an ATI RADEON 7000 (taken from lspci) 64 MB graphics card. My computer has a 700 MHz Celeron CPU and 650 MB RAM with Ubuntu 10.04. Anything graphical is slow. I cannot even play basic games like SuperTux. I think it is a graphics driver problem. Will this card ever work well with Linux, what do I need to do?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Intel Graphics And Random Poor 3d Performance - Sometimes Its Okay Sometimes No

Apr 16, 2010

I am running kubuntu 9.10 on a dell inspiron 14 with an intel GM45 graphics card. When I run 3d games like Nexuiz, openarena and tremulous I get really random performance. Sometimes things are totally playable with somewhere between 50-80 fps and other times I get maybe 4 fps and everything takes forever to load. These effects persists between logouts, X restarts and reboots! I get no errors when I run things in console either.I never really play games much but when something doesn't work...

Fedora :: Poor Graphics In Wine Version 1.3.10 On F14 Using X.org Nouveau Driver?

Jan 13, 2011

I'm using a remix of F14 called Fusion Linux. It's all the same as fedora14. It's come preinstalled with xorg x11 nouveau driver. So, i'm not using Nvidia driver. Now, the problem is that the graphics in wine application are really poor. Fonts appear to be really hazy. See this image to get me better: [URL].. In earlier version of fedora and wine, i used nvidia driver. Graphics used to be good at that time.

OpenSUSE :: Poor Graphics Quality Of Applets With Firefox / Icedtea Under Suse 11.3

Dec 31, 2010

I have recently switched from suse 9.2 32-bit to 11.3 64-bit (luckily I'm still mantaining the old machien for a while).I'm noticing that the graphics quality of the applets displayed by the new firefox (3.6.12 bundled with the opensuse distro) is significantly worse (mainly concerning fonts which look very poor) then the one I used to have on the old system.I see that the new firefox uses IcedTea 1.9.2. The old system was using, I guess, something called libjavaplugin_oji.Is this a known problem with IcedTea and is there a recommended replacenent ?

Ubuntu :: Everything Works Fine Until After Reboot?

Mar 30, 2011

Basically i set up a webserver using this tutorial but installed ubuntu 10.10 [URL]

im using charter cable and it has that ubee router. when i tried to set up the static ip the closest thing i saw was an option called static ip lease in which input my servers local address and mac address and checked enable. then i applied dmz to my servers local ip. after that i typed in my public ip and to my excitement it worked. so i began creating the website. i dont know if all that is relevant but just in case i didnt want to leave anything out. this is my first time with linux and servers and ive only been at it for about 5 days. anyways i made the website and everything was going good then i needed to reboot the server so i did. after reboot i logged into the server then went back to the other room where i worked on the server using putty from a pc and flashfxp and tried to navigate to the website in firefox. it didnt work. if i try to go to the website address from a computer on my network i get a problem loading page error from firefox and if im on a different network it shows my router page to login and configure. i dont understand how it was working then after reboot it all of a sudden doesnt.

o also i installed gnump3 today before reboot if that is important

Ubuntu :: Having Poor Sound In The 9.10?

Jan 12, 2010

Ever since I upgraded to 9.10, I've had poor sound quality. There is occasional popping, hissing ans just generally poor sound. I've found several posts about loss of sound but no solution for bad sound quality. Didn't there used to be a way to select your sound in Ubuntu? I remember having a pull down choice of ALSA, Pulse or OSS. I can't find that any more and Pulse seems to be deemed the culprit in other posts I've read. How do I change to ALSA or OSS?

OpenSUSE Install :: ATI Driver Installs Have Destroyed SUSE/GNOME Graphics Setup?

May 20, 2011

Caution to all using ati graphics download repository. I have been using SUSE 11.4 after an upgrade from 11.3 through zypper for months. I added ati graphics as a update repository. Software update installed two ati files. I did not notice their names.

Upon installation my graphics was acting funny so I uninstalled the two ati-files figuring I'd be back to where I was. Now I can only get into terminal window after reboot at both runlevel 3 and 5; no graphics at all. I keep getting message re: display 'null' I wish to return to original graphics configuration prior to ati downloads which, I believed used xorg drivers.

I believe I either need to revise xorg.conf file back to original which was overwritten by ati process or reinstall xorg/X11 related files. I have an ati radeon HD 3450 agp card. 32 bit SUSE w/11.4 installed and running. Anyone have a sample xorg.conf that might work or some other ideas of how to get back to where I was.

As a related question, if I do a fresh reinstall of SUSE 11.4 using dvd can I save my /home files and any /filesystem files that my special software created in root directories.

Ubuntu Networking :: GRE 47 Not Received While It Works Fine On Xp?

Oct 5, 2010

This has been bugging me for quite a long time. I need to have a pptp connection to my university. I have tried to locate the error, but this has been a real trouble.

A little bit of history: My girlfriend had a laptop with M$ vista on it with a working PPTP connection. I had a laptop with Ubuntu, with which I couldn't get the PPTP working.

When my laptop crashed, I bought a new one on which I run a dual boot XP SP3 and Ubuntu. I also own a desktop (Dual M$ Win 7 / Ubuntu standard Karmic) and my girfriend also upgraded to Win 7.

Currently, the XP version is the only one on which I can get a connection. Both Ubuntu and the Win 7's give me a GRE proc 47 not received error. I know our router (a DAVOLINK DV2020) is notorious for not sending through GRE proc 47, but this either shouldn't be the case or it shouldn't matter, since I can make a perfect connection through the XP OS.

This is quite a handicap, since we both study at the university for which we require working VPN PPTP connections.

Settings:
Gateway: vpn-eur-pptp.eur.nl
Username: 123456ab@eur.nl
Password: password
Authentication: MSCHAP / MSCHAPv2

Ubuntu :: Compiz Works Fine In 9.04 / Doesn't Work In 9.10

Mar 18, 2010

I've got 9.04 and 9.10 both installed on the same machine. The /home directory is on a separate partition, so both OSes use the same /home.I can't get Compiz to work at all in 9.10, even though it's been perfectly fine in 9.04. Is there a backport of some sort that i should install?The fixes I've found all point to editing the xorg.conf file, but of course, Karmic doesn't have an xorg.conf file.I've tried reinstalling the Compiz files, reinstalled the open-source video drivers, installed/uninstalled fglrx drivers a few times, rebooted dozens of times.

Ubuntu Security :: 10.04 With LDAP Cannot Login Through GDM But Works Fine With Su?

In a terminal id john gives me information about the user john.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Ping Windows By Name But IP Works Fine

Dec 3, 2010

My Windows machine can ping Ubuntu by name, but Ubuntu can only ping the Windows machine by using it's IP address. This was working fine in both directions until I purged Samba. After purging Samba, I couldn't ping in either direction unless I used the IP address. I did some reading and found that Samba provides NetBIOS functionality that allows the machines to resolve host names without a DNS. Since I'm not running a local DNS, I decided to reinstall Samba. Unfortunately, I've not been able to restore it to full working condition. I don't want to use hosts files as all the IP addresses are assigned automatically by DHCP. I want to be able to access the Windows machine by name.
