Ubuntu :: Live Hanging On Loading Essential Drivers?

Jun 21, 2010

I'm trying to recover files from a desktop PC which has 4 HD running on a RAID (0+1) set-up. Now it would appear that either Vista Raid has failed (which I think will be the issue) or one or more of the HD partions has become corrupt. So, I have installed Ubuntu Live on USB and have succesfully booted; however, Ubuntu does not appearing to be loading as it is stuck on "loading essential drivers".

Slackware :: UBCD This Live CD Is An Essential Tool For Nooobs?

Apr 8, 2010

The Ultimate Bootable CD (UBCD) is a great live CD with a host of great tools and utlilities, useful to anyone interested in making a broken system bootable again. It is a good idea to familiarise yourself with this CD by having a look through it often,so that when you need to use it you know where things are...learning the command line syntax is better but this is a very useful stop gap while that process is ongoing...

You can have a look at it from here[URL]..download [URL].. burn at 8x I use CD-RW discs to save wasting Cd's...boot the CD up using function key or BIOS set for CD/DVD as first boot device. To navigate the disc...Esc, use Ctrl Alt Delete if you get stuck,Space Bar to insert a tick,Tab to change field,arrow keys to navigate the choices.

Ubuntu :: Browsers Always Hanging On Web-pages / Not Loading Them Fully

Jan 28, 2011

browsers consistently hanging and not fully loading web pages. this happens in all the browsers i have tried. Opera and Chromium and Firefox. This only happens in Ubuntu. All the other computer in this house load fine and this windows side of this computer loads the pages the right way. At this point i don't know what to do but keep hitting stop and reload and few time till the page loads. can anyone help with this? Also I have tried to clear the cashes. One question where do the temporary Internet files go so I can manually clean that folder out. And also Firefox isn't to bad and the other browsers I just don't like it that much as I like the opera.

Fedora Hardware :: Wacom Drivers And Kernel Updated - Tablet Hanging

Nov 30, 2009

I upgraded to Fedora 12 right after release, everything was working fine until update on previous weekend. Looks like it updated Wacom drivers and kernel. Now what I have. I hotplug my tablet in USB, and everything seems fine, I can position a cursor and press buttons, but after I press some button it hangs (LEDs on tablet are responding) I must remove Stylus from proximity in order to make it respond again (while stylus is away LED on tablet switches off for a fraction of second).

If I move mouse during tablet hanging, applications barely respond and if they are it is like mouse button is pressed (selecting text). I tried wacdump, and it's reporting everything's fine (X,Y, Tilt, Pressure everything shows up). I couldn't find evidence that wacom driver is controlling it, but I assume if wacdump is reporting then it is. I have:

I didn't touch xorg.conf in sense of tablet, but it worked for me in F11 and until now. I'm trying to make least manual configurations possible. Through exploring /proc/bus/usb/devices and kernel messages I confirmed that wacom drives is handling the tablet. And I noticed that in X's log

(II) config/hal: Adding input device Wacom Intuos3 9x12
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: always reports core events
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12 device is /dev/input/event8
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12 (Wacom Intuos3 9x12) is not a pad
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12 is in absolute mode
(**) WACOM: suppress value is 2
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: reading USB link
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: threshold = 61
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: max x = 60960
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: max y = 45720
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: max z = 1023
(**) Option "BaudRate" "9600"
(**) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: serial speed 9600
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Wacom Intuos3 9x12" (type: Wacom Stylus)
(EE) Wacom Intuos3 9x12: Top/Bottom area overlaps with another devices.
(EE) Couldn't init device "Wacom Intuos3 9x12"
(II) UnloadModule: "wacom"
(EE) config/hal: NewInputDeviceRequest failed (1)

I've encountered quite similar error in openSUSE when was configuring tablet manually in xorg.conf. As I can see problem is with "pad" device, which I disabled in openSUSE in order to make X running. So why is it not working?

Ubuntu Installation :: Kernal Panic When Loading 9.10 Live CD On Dell

Jan 14, 2010

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 I got at a yard sale. Has the typical 512MB Ram, 80GB Hard Drive, 2.4GHz Celeron and the integrated Intel video and audio. I decided to put Ubuntu 9.10. However I got a Kernal Panic while loading the live CD. It gets to the white flashing Ubuntu Loco. It freezes. The lights on the keyboard flash and it complains of a kernel panic.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Loading NVIDIA Driver With Live CD Boot?

Mar 15, 2010

I bought a new NVIDIA GeForce 6600GT video card for this PC recently and now whenever I boot Ubuntu 9.10 Live I can't change the screen resolution from 640 X 480. I get this message to the effect that the driver is restricted and not free software. When I try to download it and use it it says I can only activate it after a reboot, but I guess it means after rebooting an installation of Ubuntu, not the live cd since it never takes.

Ubuntu recommends NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver 185, so I went to NVIDIA's web site and downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.36-pkg1.run (and NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.53-pkg1.run since I think it's the newest, at least when I enter GeForce 6 Series and Linux 32-bit in the driver download search it's what comes up). I noticed that at the beginning menu of the Ubuntu 9.10 Live cd, when you press F4, the option to load from a driver disk is there. I was hoping this means I could just put one or both of the above files on a cd, insert it into the other disk drive and select that option.

Ubuntu Networking :: Loading Native Drivers For Realtek Wireless Adapter?

Feb 12, 2011

Just made the jump to Ubuntu, and until this install I considered myself very tech savvy. Now not so much! Built my new desktop, loaded Ubuntu 64 bit no problem. But I'm having a terrible time figuring out how to load the native driver for my realtek wireless adapter. I successfully un-tarred the file, and used the terminal to run the make command by using cd command to navigate to the file. It returned a wall of text, and in my mind looked to work. Next I go to run "./clean" in the same file location in the terminal and it returns:

"ERROR: Module r8192s_usb does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module ieee80211_rsl does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_ccmp does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_tkip does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_wep does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt does not exist in /proc/modules

Not completely sure if this is an issue, I try moving to the next step of instructions issuing the command "insmod 8712u.ko" in the terminal same file location and get the error message
insmod: error inserting '8712u.ko': -1 Operation not permitted
I've tried running "sudo insmod 8712u.ko" from both that file directory, and from my home file directory. My guess is I'm missing a step or need to be typing these commands in a different file directory in the terminal.

OpenSUSE Install :: Hangs At 'loading Basic Drivers'?

Dec 21, 2010

I got a new ASUS EeePC 1015PEM with Windows 7 with the intention to install OpenSuse 11.3 onto it for having a dual booting netbook with enough disk space.I'm installing from an external DVD drive, the checksums of the ISO were ok as well.However, the OpenSuse installer fails at starting up after selecting the action. It hangs, no matter what menu entry I chose, at "loading basic drivers", forever.Because this isn't necessarily an unknown problem I've tried some of the predefined kernel options of the main installer menu. Then I tried some manually entered kernel boot options that helped me in some other installations:

acpi=off, apm=off, CPUFreq=noNone of them seem to have an effect on the installers behaviorI hope that there is people who managed to solve this problem with an actual EeePC model... because I really don't know what I could any more. It's kind of frustrating to not even get past the kernel launch I haven't tried any other distros installation discs, but I don't even intend to. I want OpenSuse because I'm running it on our firms machines as well and don't like shifting between systems.

When I try to run the next command $tar -xvzf DPB_RT2870_Linux_STA_x.x.x.x.tgz I get a message Ubuntu 10.04 cannot find -xvzf. When I try to run the Makefile command locate in the same ABC directory, I again the error message cannot find Makefile.

Slackware :: Xorg Not Loading After Install Of Nvidia Drivers 270.41.19

Jun 1, 2011

I am running slackware 13.37. I installed the newest NVIDIA drivers 270.41.19 and now impossible to load Xorg.

I get:

fatal server error:

How I installed the new nvidia drivers:
- removepkg xf86-video-nouveau
- installed xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist-noarch-1.txz for blacklist the nv drivers
- run script nvidia
- run nvidia-xconfig
- reboot

The startx and black screen with errors messages mentioned above.

I run glxinfo | grep render and i get " Error: Unable to open display". Logical since no Xorg

I run dmesg | grep nvidia and I get all the required fields:
- NVIDIA taint kernels
- power state
- enabling device
- Setting latency

I have to manually copy the errors messages since my PC is not working.

When I run "find /usr/lib -name *.270.* " I do get the module Same thing when I run "find /lib -name nvidia.ko". I see the nvidia.ko module.

Hardware :: Sound Drivers Not Loading In Fedora 14 / Make Them Work Again?

Dec 30, 2010

I am having trouble loading my sound drivers after removing pulseaudio. (Yes, I did try and reinstall pulse, did it again with ALSA, no luck).

It appears that my sound drivers are not loaded, because cat /proc/asound/cards returns 'no soundcards' and aplay -l returns the same... the ouput was quite different before, I am sure I DO have soundcards and they did work before in Fedora 14.

Any Ideas how can I make the sound drivers load again ?

Debian Installation :: Loading Missing Firmware - Failure To Detect Drivers

Aug 5, 2014

So, I am having certain issues regarding Debian installation. Since my Wi-Fi card, Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG, requires non-free drivers not provided within Debian install image, I am bound to use USB stick during installation process to get those drivers, iwlwifi-3965-1.ucode and iwlwifi-3965-2.ucode, to enable Wi-FI on my system. However, no matter what I do, I cannot get debian-installer to detect drivers present on the machine. I have tried virtually everything - downloading drivers from multiple sources, renaming drivers properly, using ext4 instal of fat32, using gpt instead of msdos, placing files in /firmware instead of root directory - but no matter what I do, the outcome is the same. USB stick seems to be working properly. Am I bound to downloading non-free image now, or is there a solution?

Ubuntu Installation :: Wireless Drivers On Live USB Only?

Jun 2, 2010

Booting into a live desktop from USB, the correct wireless drivers pop-up to be installed even when not connected to the internet. But upon installing Ubuntu the only way to install these drivers is through a wired connection. Any thoughts as to why this is? I'd love to be able to run any version of Ubuntu out of the box, but experience always brings back the ethernet cable.

Running: HP Mini 110, Broadcom wireless

OpenSUSE Install :: Error Loading Operating System (Live CD Was Totally Fine)?

May 17, 2011

This is a IBM T23 (10 years old)pentium3 1.1ghz640mb ram28gb hdd (contianing several bad sectors)intel graphicseverything works out of box (graphics, wireless, etc) on a live cdhowever after installation, upon boot, it displays "Error loading operating system" right after BIOS and before even goes into GRUB and is stuck there.Enter live cd, and choosing boot from harddrive does not solve the problem.Already did the CD check, which shows no problemdid a bit googlingturned out this could be an issue with a dying harddriveand sadly, it is the case, the harddrive on this 10 year old laptop is indeed dying D:However, installing windows xp posed no problem... (altho tons of driver issue, but anyways...)I have a few solutions in mind1). just use a usb stick as the replacement for harddrive2). get a new harddrive (not even sure what to get for this laptop D: )3). find a magical way to fix it :SWould definitely be glad to know a way to load this system on this existing harddrive for nowI was told earlier that there are ways to tell the system to avoid mapping the bad sectors.

General :: Live Cd With Nvidia Drivers?

May 12, 2010

I work at a computer shop. I have been making ubuntu live cds for a couple years to help test hardware outside of whatever viruses and other crap software people have installed in their os. Generally I use remastersys to create the image. However, it removes all 3d video drivers, for good reasons which I understand.

Does anyone know of a similar program or a way to include the proprietary drivers on a live cd?

If you happen to have any other suggestions for troubleshooting linux live cd's as well I would be happy to hear them. Likewise, I would be happy to share any knowledge I have accumulated. I like to think my live cd is a pretty solid compilation of hardware diagnostics and utilities.

Fedora Installation :: Install The Broadcom STA Drivers From The Live CD Without Using An Ethernet Cable?

Since there is no "Additional Drivers" app in Fedora like there is in Ubuntu, how the heck can I install the Broadcom STA drivers from the Live CD without using an Ethernet cable? And how the heck can I ensure that they stay installed, even after installing Fedora? I suppose putting the RPM on a USB Flash Drive will work, but that's the only thing I can think of... And is there an RPM out there for this specific driver?
