when I go to additional drivers the only driver that comes up is the ATI proprietary driver. Isn't there supposed to be broadband drivers and webcam drivers and all the drivers that I need for all the devices that I use. is there a better driver mangier out there.
I know that Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy, etc. has an 'Additional Drivers' window but what about other Distros such as CrunchBang, PCLOS, etc. and others? Can I get drivers in them as easily?
I recently installed a new CPU and motherboard in my Media Server, but the ethernet port isn't showing up under ifconfig. Is there any way to install additional drivers? EDIT: The model is Realtek RTL8111/8160B.
I've seen may similar issues to mine, but some are different and others are identical, but have been resolved since in the repositories. I install Maverick from CD, reboot, update via update manager, reboot, install nVidia driver via additional hardware gui, reboot and I can't get into X, I get tty1 instead with a text login prompt.
dmesg tells me: Code: nvidia: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -1 purging nvidia-* and deleting /etc/X11/xorg.conf means that I can get back into X, but without any hardware drivers. I have both an onboard and PCI-E nVidia graphics adapters but my PCI-E one is primary.
i have just installed opensuse 11.3 on my PC and updated all packages and all and then i installed nvidia drivers from this link SDB:NVIDIA drivers - openSUSE i downloaded the 1 click install file nvidia.ymp and installed the driver successfullybut then when i rebooted the PC for the driver to work,it doesn't work,and when i go to system>look and feel>desktop effects and i try to enable the effects i get the message that i cant enable the effects it gives me this message "Desktop effects are not supported on your hardware / configuration. Would you like to activate them anyway?" PS i say "no" to this message and it closes but i notice there is a constant use of 33% of the CPU and theres an unnamed/unknown process in the system monitor that keeps appearing and disappearing...thats quitrd because i installed opensuse 11.2 and 11.3 before and i never had these problems
I just installed ubuntu 10.10 on my HP G70-460US laptop, the ethernet connection works but my wifi card cant be detected..I dont know if the the wifi state being "off" (there is a button to turn it on and off) has anything to do with ubuntu not being able to pick up on it..but even before i had no problem getting ubuntu to find the proprietary drivers.
I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Lenovo B570 in a dual boot config alongside Windows 7. I've downloaded the correct Broadcom STA drivers (the model is Broadcom BCM4313) with another PC, transferred them with a USB stick, installed them with Synaptic and locked the version as was recommended. I've also used the rfkill command to turn off the software block, so both hardware and software switches are OK.
The problem is when I go to the "Additional Drivers" application, it yells at me for not having internet access, and then shows up completely empty. This confuses me because I've manually installed it, so I would think it would show up regardless, but it doesn't. In a final effort to make it happy, I've brought it to work and connected it through the Ethernet, setting up the proxy LAN settings to let it through the firewall. I can get on the web with Firefox with that method, however when I launch "Additional Drivers", it sits there searching for drivers endlessly, so I'm guessing it's not really connected. I feel like I'm really close here - I just need to enable the Broadcom driver, but I can't because "Additional Drivers" won't show it.
After trying to make audio output work on Lenovo b560 notebook I finally succeeded but the wireless stopped working. The driver was removed. I tried to follow the instructions from Broadcom http://www.broadcom.com/docs/linux_sta/README.txt and it started showing the driver in admin - drivers, it shows that it is activated but not in use, but once I get to this point
"modprobe wl" it shows this: install /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install wl insmod /lib/modules/2.6.32-25-generic-pae/updates/dkms/wl.ko FATAL: Error inserting wl (/lib/modules/2.6.32-25-generic-pae/updates/dkms/wl.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
-GUI feels laggy -glxgears result way too low (2100fps) -HD video verry laggy (1080p mkv with vlc)
I can set things up on Catalyst Control Center like VSync or scaling options, but if I go to System->System Administration->Additional Drivers (I have german version installed so it could be called slightly different) there is a listing for the FGLRX proprietary Driver and its marked as not active. (Last time I tried to activate it, it broke my bootloader somehow) So I wanted to ask what I should do (before I risk my bootloader a second time by activating the driver in that particular menu)
I have been away for a while but I'm back and I've upgraded to ubuntu 11.04 when I log in to the new desktop there's nothing just one gnome bar at the top and what I think is the unity launcher on the side but there is no icons on it like the screen shots I've seen.I also have the nvidia driver 275.09 installed but it's saying Driver installed but not active.
I try to install the driver from my geforce 9500gt in the fedora 12, but i can't acess the display setting and don't activate 3D acceleration. This is what show to me in the display settings. i already have make some modifications like say here:
And i don't know how to restore grub.conf, or uninstall NVIDIA driver...
I got two video card I've used on one mainboard and problem is I can't properly install the driver an use and active effects, For ati card I flow this instruction: SDB:ATI drivers - openSUSE my card is ati 9200se and the other one is nvidia mx440 se
how to setup an Active/Active Load Balanced and High Available (If one of the nodes is down the system still runs) MySQL cluster. I have found quite a few howto's but I have some things unclear in my mind. I found a few solutions like this one: [URL] or this: [URK] Those are using two or four MySQL nodes, two Load Balancers to avoid a single point of failure but only one MySQL cluster management server. What happens if the MySQL cluster management fails?
I have also found a "MySQL Master-Master Circular Replication" technique but from what I read, with this option there is a chance that conflicts will arise if node A and node B both insert an auto-incrementing key on the same table.
The error "USB device 6 (vend/prod 0x603/0xf2) is not claimed by any active driver." is in dmesg every time I connect my Logitech keyboard to my system. I also tried (all with the same error): - Memory stick - DVD-burner - Compaq mouse
There is a laptop that I want to get that has the ATI Mobility Radeon 4100 and I cannot find it under ATI's driver downloads for any operating system.
Look for yourself [url] select notebook, then readeon, then 4100 series, for ANY operating system, it doesen't have a driver for it.
The first question is: Were is the linux driver for the 4100, and the second, if there is NO propriatary driver installed, will x take full use of the video hardware, or will it be capped and won't work to its fullest potential that it has?
So I just recently migrated from Vista to Linux, I'm running Ubuntu Studio 10.04 on a HP Pavilion DV6700 with a Broadcom BCM 4312 b/g frequencies wifi adapter. I followed one guide telling me to use the hardware drivers program to activate Broadcom STA wireless driver, but whenever i attempt to do so it says "SystemError: InstallArchives() failed". Can anyone help?? (BTW i am not that adept with the Linux operating as of yet)
I'm an italian student that's making a project for an exam of the university.I'm trying to install a usb driver to talk with an instrument that my profalso the drivers were given by my prof. the driver now I'm trying to install is called:libhid-0.2.12.origI've opened it and I have run the programm called configure.I had the same problem of Gabyx (in a topic in the section linux Programming & Scripting) but I think I've resolved it in the same way suggested by Lakerdonald....now after I run configure appears:
Code: configure: Using db2man stylesheet: /usr/share/kde4/apps/ksgmltools2/docbook/xsl/html/docbook.xsl configure: creating ./config.status
I am new to linux. I install fedora 10 in text mode in my system. Because some drivers didn't support. I don't no know how to install supporting drivers. My system config. are Intel 945 mother board, 512 DDR2 RAM, 80GB IDE hard disk, P4 3GHz processor. When i try to install in graphics mode after disk checking i.e while anaconda is loading my monitor automatically turned off. So I recognized that problem with some driver. So I installed in text mode. Please tell me where do i get drivers for my system and how to install in my system. I don't have Internet connection for automatic installation using yum which was i found from linux forum so kindly tell me manual installation.
I am currently running Ubuntu 9.10 on a Compaq Presario V3010US. My video card is an NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 which appears to be running properly with some limitations (missing effects from CompizConfig). While utilizing the "Hardware Drivers" configuration a recommended driver is listed but when I attempt to activate this driver I encounter an error.
This error turns my attention to the log file :
This log file is extensive and I do not wish to post pages of code unless requested. The configuration does however list that "a different driver is in use". I have scoured threads to ensure that I have not posted a question that has been answered to no avail. Please bear in mind that I am in my Linux infancy and my grasp of this incredible operating system is cursory at best.
I've recently bought a Samsung R580 laptop. It is now configured as a dual boot system with Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows 7 (64bit). The wireless network functions correctly under Win7, but I have encountered problems with Ubuntu. The native drivers do not function and having identified the driver used by Win7 (net819xp.inf) that works, I have tried to install it using ndisgtk, but get the message "incorrect hardware". I have followed the ndiswrapper howto carefully without being able to get the wireless network going.
I have just installed OpenSUSE 11.2 on an Intel DQ35JO motherboard and XFX 9500GT 512MB video card. After installation the desktop looked fine on the Sony LCD TV I have connected to the 9500GT via a DVI to HDMI cable.
After the first reboot after installation I added the Nvidia repository via the add community repository function in the software sources option in YaST2. I then proceeded to install the Nvidia G02 drivers and the nvidia-settings package. At this point after a reboot I would get a blank screen. Hitting ctrl-alt-F1/F2/F3/F4/F5/F6 has no effect, I could not get any of the virtual consoles to appear. I had to SSH into the box and reboot into runlevel 3.
Once I had rebooted into runlevel 3 I logged in as root and executed "sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia" and got an error message that the configuration server could not be started. I tried executing "sax2 -r -m 0=vesa" and received the same error:
I want to install the driver manually since its not "Hardware Drivers" list when I choose to install. Last time I tried doing it I was dual booted under Vista and I killed my Ubuntu partition somehow. I formatted today and I'm under Ubuntu so I really don't want to screw up again haha! I downloaded the drivers and its sitting in "Downloads" waiting for a reply! Oh and the reason I screwed up was cuz another forum told me I had to uninstall some other graphic driver that was there by default and I couldn't get a GUI back and didn't know how to reinstall it :S I am a Linux noob, not familiar with the command terminal.
After I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.4 I could see Ubuntu One in the Places menu. (and subsequently have access to my files etc there).I have now installed 10.4 on a new machine (clean install) and I don't seem to have access from 'Places' now. The only way I can get to it is via a web browser.Is it just hidden away somewhere? Or do I need to install some additional packages?
I just installed 11.04 beta yesterday and was following along with this article so I could setup a "Storage" partition and always have access to the same files in win 7 or ubuntu. [URL]
The problem happens when you try to install and use ntfs-config and run it. Here is the description from the article:

Now head to the System->Administration menu and pick the NTFS Configuration Tool.
You'll see a few partitions listed, likely as /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, and the like. If you only want your storage drive, it should be listed as /dev/sda3 or something similar--just not the first or second options. Check the box for "Add," click in the "Mount point" column to give it a name (Storage, perhaps?), and hit "Apply." Check both boxes on the next window to allow read/write access, and hit OK, and you're done. Now the drive with all your stuff is accessible to Windows and Linux at all times.
When I try to run the ntfs-config, I get the following.
However, in the software center there is a note below the ntfs-config download saying:
