General :: Which UNIX Distribution Works On A Dell M5010 Without Having To Compile Any Drivers

Jul 22, 2011

I want to have UNIX or Linux on my laptop but I found that the wireless did not work on all the ones I tried. I have not tried again for over 6 months but don't have the time to experiment. It took me a week straight last time, I tried PCBSD (8.1), Ubuntu, OpenSUSE (11.3), and various others. The laptop was just released then, so I can understand why all the drivers might not have been compatible then.

I am hoping someone else has successfully added a distribution and can tell me which.

LAPTOP: Dell Inspiron M5010 (15R) [not to be confused with Dell N5010, which is the Intel version]

Here is my hardware (from Speccy):

Hardware :: Lost Sound And Laptop Trackpad After Ubuntu Upgrade?

Dec 10, 2009

Everything was working when I was on Ubuntu 9.04 but after I upgraded to 9.10 via their upgrade utility. The upgrade failed at the last point of installation (when it tried to install daemon I think). Nevertheless, after the reboot I was on ubuntu 9.10. But the sound stopped working as well as the mouse trackpad on my laptop. I remember that during the installation when it asked if I wanted to keep the old sound configuration file, I clicked yes. So is there I way to fix/reinstall the sound driver and the tackpad? In the sound hardware setting window, no device is listed. I'm pretty sure that my hardwares work on ubuntu 9.10 as the sound and trackpad work fine using the ubuntu 9.10 live CD.

Debian Hardware :: How To Send HDMI Sound From Dell XPS M1330 Laptop To TV

Feb 1, 2015

I'm trying to get HDMI audio to play from my Dell XPX M1330 laptop through a HDMI cable to my Sony Bravia TV.
This is a dual booted laptop. Booting into Windows 7 on the same laptop and streaming the desktop through HDMI cable to the TV shows up on the TV just fine, including sound through the TV's speakers.

However, when booting into my Debian laptop, with the HDMI cable already plugged in, I am able to play the videos, but no sound comes out of the TV's speakers. (plugging in the HDMI cable after logging into Gnome hangs up the entire system and I have to cold boot; setting that problem aside for now).

Since Windows 7 can figure this out, I consider this just something I don't have configured properly.

What do I need to do in order to enable sound to be piped through HDMI to the TV's speakers?

System details are shown below:

Pavucontrol Configuration tab dropdown indicating it is not sensing, or doesn't know about, the HDMI hardware:

cat /etc/debian_version shows 7.8

Output of aplay -l is:

Code: Select allcensored@thedell:~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: STAC92xx Analog [STAC92xx Analog]

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Amarok2 Sound Lost When Other Sound Plays

Dec 29, 2009

openSUSE 11.2 64bit
libxine1 from Packman
00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)

Maybe it's just an Amarok2 problem, but whenever another app (for example Konversation) plays a sound file, the audio instantly cuts out (in Amarok2) and will not come back unless I quit Amarok2 and restart it.

Amarok2 has only the options - "HDA ATI SB VT 1708S Analog" or "PulseAudio" (which is NOT installed).

alsa-info here - [URL]

Also I am totally confused by the mixer, it has so many knobs that I am totally lost!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Playback On Dell Laptop?

Jan 15, 2010

I have a Dell Latitude CPi that has 400MHz Intel Processor and 256 MB of ram. It has a Neomagic Corporation NM2360 [MagicMedia 256ZX]. I have it set to 16 bit color depth and it is using the neomagic driver. My problem is that it cannot play any video of any size flash, or saved to hard drive. It has a fps so low that I can see it rendering each frame going across the screen. It doesn't seem to have a problem with animated pictures, just actual video files. I don't know whether or not this matters but the card set is known to not support 3d acceleration. I can run any commands in terminal and have a good understanding of the linux environment. This problem has occurred under Ubuntu and Xubuntu and still happens if I use a light weight WM like fluxbox.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dell Laptop D610 Microphone Not Working?

Mar 1, 2011

I have a Dell Latitude D610 that was given to me and I currently have Ubuntu 10.04 installed. I am trying to get the internal microphone working for gchat.

If I go to System-->Preferences-->Sound-->Hardware it says: Choose a device to configure and Internal Audio, 1 Output/1 Input Analog Stereo Duplex is highlighted.

Settings for the selected device: Analog Stereo Duplex is selected on the dropdown menu.

When I select the Input tab: Input Volume is at 100% the box for Mute is unchecked Connector Analog Microphone/Microphone 1 is selected on the drop down menu for Connector and the device for sound input: Internal Audio Analog Stereo is selected.

How can I configure my microphone to work?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dell Studio 15 Laptop Speakers Stopped Working

Jul 21, 2010

I've been running Ubuntu 10.04 on my Dell Studio laptop for a few months now with no audio problems. Last night I was listening to music just fine, then put my laptop to sleep and went to bed. Today, I go to play music, and nothing comes out of the speakers. Both headphone/speaker jacks work, but when I unplug the headphones, nothing happens.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Laptop Speakers Not Working: Dell Inspiron 700m

Jan 8, 2011

The only problem I've had so far seems to be a common one but I haven't found a specific solution for a dell inspiron 700m. I have sound through the headphones but not through the laptop internal speakers. I've played with the alsamixer settings endlessly but no success, and I'm 99% sure that it's not an issue with the hardware or speaker wiring. I suspect I need to add an 'options snd-hda-intel model=xxxxx' line to alsa-base but not sure what argument to use.

Debian Multimedia :: X Crashes Old Dell Inspiron 5160 Laptop?

Feb 12, 2011

I've just installed brand new Debian 6 on an oldish Dell Inspiron 5160 laptop. This features an XGI Volari XP5 video card, which I can see reported in /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

When Debian boots it will only run in command line mode. Running startx hangs up the whole system and just displays a black screen with a few vertical stripes in different colours of dark green.

the default vesa driver for X.org doesn't play very well with the XGI video card.

I've tried running
X -configure
X -config /root/xorg.conf.new

This correctly detects the XGI Volari XP5 card (if you look through the xorg.conf) but running the second X command still hangs up the system.

X runs fine under Knoppix, but most recent Ubuntu distros I've tried actually hung up after the initial text-based startup section, so presumably died as soon as X started up. Debian's graphical installer worked fine, however.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lost The Startup Sound?

Nov 30, 2010

The startup sound just desappeared. The Gnome Login Sound is still on the list of starting programs and the command is right (/usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play id=desktop-login description=GNOME Login). What makes it more weird is, that it works fine on all other users. I started to suffer from this problem since I tried to change the sound (I have done it before with no problems). At the same time with changing the startup sound I installed PulseAudio volume control. Could these things have something doing with my startup sound desappearence?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound - SB Audigy 2 ZS / Dell PowerEdge 830

Sep 25, 2010

I have a Dell PowerEdge 830 Dual Pentium on which I installed 10.04. I have installed (slotted in) an SB Audigy 2 ZS card, from another PC, but it doesn't appear to be working. The donor PC suffered a graphics card failure that killed the motherboard. I can't tell whether the sound card is actually faulty. Did the sound card ought to work without any 'fiddling'?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound Via HDMI On Dell XPS 1330

After a fresh install of 10.10 on a Dell XPS 1330 I cannot get any audio when connecting to an LCD TV via HDMI. I get video no problem but sound only from internal speakers.

Under System/Preferences/Sound on the Hardware tab there is an profile entry for 'Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output' but if I select this all goes silent.

I checked alsamixer and nothing is muted. The aplay -l output is below.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lost Sound After Change To Kernal?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Changed Soundcard - Lost Sound

Apr 10, 2011

I'm having a bit of a furball trying to change a soundcard. I took out an Audigy card. KDE detected the removal of the old card and asked me if I wanted to remove the drivers. I said yes. I went into the bios and enabled the onboard sound. Now I've got no sound so I guess I've got some configuration to do. So far:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia Lost HDMI Sound With New Vid Card

The old Nvidia GT220 recently died in my HTPC and I replaced it with a new GT430.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound With ENS1371 Card On Dell Dimension 4100?

Aug 7, 2010

Something about my sound setup does not agree with Linux. I couldn't get sound on Puppy Linux and I can't get sound with Ubuntu either. I'm trying to use speakers through the headphone jack at the front of the tower (system unit, whatever you call the thing that houses the motherboard/ CD Drive etc.)

I tried the basic sound troubleshooting from this guide: [URL]..Since I still have the links up from it, I might as well share them with you. 1. This is the ALSA Information Script tailored to my settings: [URL]..

2. This is the ALSA Driver Configuration Guide. Scroll down to Line 587 for my card ( Module snd-ens1371):[URL]..
