Debian Configuration :: Dell D620 Wifi Lost After Installed 2.6.38 Kernel In Squeeze

May 9, 2011

Hi,I'm using a Dell Lattitude D620 laptop. I just installed the latest kernel 2.6.38 in my Squeeze amd64 :

Output of uname -r
2.6.38-bpo.2-amd64

Now I'm running on new kernel,everything seems fine except my wifi ( now I'm connected through ethernet ). Before I do the process with the guide in http://wiki.debian.org/wl to activate my wifi,I'd like to ask for some advice here,is this latest kernel support my wifi card? If yes,how to activate it?

Output of lspci :

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/PM/GMS, 943/940GML and 945GT Express Memory Controller Hub (rev 03)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)

Debian Configuration :: Slow Wifi In Squeeze With Atheros Ar928x?

May 14, 2011

I have Acer Aspire 4740 laptop with Atheros ar928x wireless. My wireless is very slow, unstable. Wireless card still works well and fast in Windows (dual booting). After searching I see that there are many Ubuntu users have the same problem in Ubuntu 11.04 with this card.

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze D-u - Kernel Configuration Skipped

Jul 6, 2010

I have a set of vm's with stable, testing, and sid to keep track of how things are going. When I did an apt-get dist-upgrade with squeeze last week, things seemed to OK (350 package updates) until the end. It didn't seem to like and / or was confused by a kernel dependency.

I am not too concerned yet. Because these are in vm's, I do a snapshot before any significant change. I can futz around with impunity because I have that backup.

I re-booted, and tried the apt-get dist-upgrade again with same results. I think I also tried apt-get -f install.

So I reverted to the snapshot, and will simply try again in the future. I recall that with lenny as testing, the font-desktop was really screwed up for about a period of 6 weeks.

However, just in case someone else runs into this:

1) a re-boot worked, but the failure of apt-get made me nervous enough to revert.

2) waiting for corrections has seemed to work in the past (with a single exception with a 4-disk SCSI software RAID10 update that failed to re-boot lenny successfully after what seemed to be a minor update -- that was on a real system, not a vm. I haven't gotten back to look at that.)

Debian Hardware :: With Kernel Upgrade To 3.16.0 Lost WiFi Module

Jun 7, 2015

I got notebook HP Pavilion 15-p171nr. Have installed Debian Wheezy. There was some problems, for example with screen brightness (backlight) and it was solved here: [URL] .....

The problem was solved with upgrading kernel 3.2.0 to 3.16.0 from backports... but... with these steps i lost my wi-fi wl module...

It was downloaded somewhere, compiled and worked well until kernel upgrade... For the current moment i can not compile it.

My hardware:
Code: Select all08:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)

Within last steps official wiki recommends (my device is in the supported list): [URL] .... but I got problems with compilation... here they are:

I have installed correct linux-headers:

Code: Select allroot@hpnote:/home/yaroslav/Загрузки# apt-get install -t wheezy-backports linux-headers-amd64
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
linux-headers-amd64 is already the newest version.

[Code] ....

Then I am trying to reconfigure already installed broadcom-sta-dkms package and here is what I got:

Code: Select allroot@hpnote:/home/yaroslav/Загрузки# dpkg-reconfigure broadcom-sta-dkms
------------------------------
Deleting module version: 5.100.82.112
completely from the DKMS tree.
------------------------------
Done.
Loading new broadcom-sta-5.100.82.112 DKMS files...
Building only for 3.16.0-0.bpo.4-amd64

Debian Hardware :: Wifi: Ar9271 In Squeeze: Compat-wireless Or New Kernel?

May 22, 2011

I'm trying to get a TP-Link TL-WN821N WiFi USB dongle to work. I bought it because I thought it was based on the Atheros ar9170 chip (which is supported in Squeeze), but I've since learnt that it was based on the ar9271, which is only supported from kernel v2.6.36 on. I've read several threads on the subject, but I'm still confused about what I should exactly do. Since it is stuff that can potentially make the partition unbootable, I prefer to ask rather than to tinker.

I've read that upgrading the kernel would do the trick. The Liquorix kernel is especially recommended in one of those threads. However Liquorix only supports Sid and Testing. Apparently, you still can install it by fetching gcc 4.5 from the Sid repository, then install it... I'm a bit wary of screwing things up though... Another route appears to be the compat-wireless tool. I've downloaded the latest 2.6.32 release of compat-wireless (see here), but there's no reference to the ar9271 in the README. Is it appropriate nevertheless (they refer to an online list of supported drivers that was updated after the release... not sure what to make of it)? Otherwise, can I install the so-called "bleeding-edge compat-wireless" with a 2.6.32 kernel? BTW, I know that I'll also need the ath9k_htc firmware to be installed.

Debian Configuration :: Kernel BUG In Squeeze 2.6.32-5-686 ?

Oct 21, 2010

I installed Debian Squeeze from a net install to a raid 1 array. I have been having a lot of troubles related to being able to write to one or more of the mounted drives - even touch gives me errors.

The most interesting line from dmesg is:

Here is the full output from dmesg:

I found a thread that indicated that this bug was fixed in the next kernel version: 2.6.32-6. I am willing to upgrade the kernel to get rid of my problems. Is a squeeze kernel at 2.6.32-6 or higher available? If so, where? I have not compiled my own kernel, and am not very interested in getting into that.

I've tried disabling ip6, disabling avahi and adding options single-request to my /etc/resolv.conf - problem remains. If it helps when installing Squeeze was prompted to install firmware-realtek, which I didn't have. So downloaded onto usb from another machine installed once setup was complete.

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze: Downgrade Kernel To 2.6.32-29?

Feb 17, 2011

downgrade my squeeze installation to kernel 2.6.32-29 (I think I have -30 now).

- what is the proper way to downgrade to that version of the kernel (I got my current kernel version when I installed squeeze few days ago and the official repo does not seem to have the -29 version anymore)?

- how to prevent that future automatic updates "upgrade" me again to the non-working version?

Debian Configuration :: Kernel Version In Squeeze ?

Mar 15, 2011

Laptop Amilo L1300, installed Debian Squeeze from netinstall from scratch a month ago. Installed Xfce as a DE afterwards.

This laptop usually has problem with: ACPI, Wifi and tons of other stuff usually Kernel related and is really picky about kernel version!

Now - with Lenny it worked without problems, but it had gnome and ext3 so I took a gamble and did a fresh install of Squeeze with Xfce with Ext4 filesystem and overall performance of the computer was faster and more responsive.

For wireless I have to use[url]

It all worked 100% until a week ago (roughly).

I do not use synaptic nor update manager, so I updated the system via terminal (as root of course) "apt-get update" and "apt-get upgrade". And I noticed it will upgrade kernel. I went through the upgrade process, as I thought it's all a 2.6.32-5-686 kernel version and it will not brake anything since it IS a stable branch of Debian and it will not install new kernel. Of course it did not install 2.6.34 or anything like that...

After the update I began experiencing problems, first with mouse pointer, it became invisible and goes back visible and resume from suspend, also wireless randomly disconnects and sometimes won't reconnect to wifi network, as I found out it's all kernel related problems (googled it up). I do not know how to go back to previous kernel version, since in Grub2 menu it only points to one and only kernel version, as I reckon it's the same version but with bugfixes? Or should I say buy UNfixes. I tried using a liquorix kernel 2.6.32 but as he works, has problem with ACPI as I presume since it freezes the system on random occasions.

Please, what EXACT version of kernel was in Squeeze like 3 weeks ago? And how can install that particular version of kernel, since it was the only one that worked besides the one from Lenny.

"uname -r" says: 2.6.32-5-686

That's what it always said.

Is it possible I had, dunno 2.6.32.28 and it was updated to, dunno, 2.6.32.29 or some later one?

I managed to google up this:[url]

And how can I go back to 2.6.32.28 kernel for instance?

Should I use some of the snapshots from [url]?

Debian Configuration :: 2.6.32-5-686 Seems To Be At The Moment Last Kernel For Squeeze?

Apr 27, 2011

I have squeeze with Gnome and 2.6.32-5-686 kernel. Due to problems with graphics card (kernel bugs), I'd like to update the kernel. The problem is, 2.6.32-5-686 seems to be at the moment last kernel for squeeze.Is it any way to update just a kernel and stay with squeeze or I must upgrade squeeze to the testing (wheezy)?

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze Backport Kernel 2.6.38 - Only A Console Login Prompt No GUI

May 22, 2011

I installed 2.6.38 from backports. It boots OK, and among the start-up messages it says it has started kdm, but then it offers only a console login prompt, no GUI. I assumed (perhaps optimistically?) that newer kernels would be backward-compatible, and that any dependencies on other software would be enforced by the package mechanisms. Running amd64, Squeeze, KDE.

Ubuntu Networking :: Dell Latitude D620 - No Connection

Jul 8, 2011

I just installed 11.04 on my Dell Latitude D620, and I'm not able to get an Ethernet connection. (Which in turn means I can't get wireless drivers.) Whenever I plug in an ethernet cable to the port and select auto eth0, the networking icon on Ubuntu's status bar flickers between the obtaining wifi animation and a spinning cursor. In a couple minutes I get the "wired network - disconnected" message.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lynx On Dell D620 Hangs And Freezes Since Upgrade ?

May 11, 2010

I have been running 32 bit karmic (and before that jaunty, intrepid and hardy) with no problems on my Dell D620 laptop. Since I upgraded to lucid, I get occasional freezes. It often happens at the gnome login screen after I click on my name but before I can enter the password, or upon restore from suspend but sometimes at other times. It doesn't happen all the time but often enough to be really annoying. When the freeze occurs, the mouse pointer responds to the touchpad or an external usb mouse, but no mouse button events are recognized and the keyboard has no effect either. I can't switch virtual terminals or anything. If the system was up and had a DHCP address at the time of the freeze, I believe the network still responds to ping. The only thing I can do to get the system back is hold the power button for 30 seconds until it powers off. The desktop CPU temperature monitor does not indicate excessive heating at the time of the freeze. I don't know whether I should try a re-install of lucid, or just go back to karmic.

Networking :: Wirelss Broadcom 4312 On Dell D620 Not Loading Under CentOS 5 / Sort It?

Jan 20, 2011

I have installed CentOS 5 just downloaded yesterday on a Dell D620. Everything but the wireless card works. So I found this article:
http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Laptops/Wireless/Broadcom
and followed it step by step and was able to complete all of the tasks. The problem is that obviously it still won't start. It is not even recognized as an adapter but when I run lspci -v it is there sure enough. When I look under the networking GUI it is listed there but it has no MAC assigned to it. Please let me know what command output you need to see and I'll get here asap. I have searched this forum and other sites and nothing so far has worked.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To Wifi On 10.04 LTS Installed On Dell?

Jun 10, 2010

I just installed 10.04 LTS on my husband's Dell laptop but don't know how to get my wifi to work. I did some searching here in the forums and found a bunch of posts, but all are from 2008 or earlier meaning that they are probably not for my version of Ubuntu - feel free to tell me that the steps are the same.

Anyway, I did a 'lspci' in Terminal and the important lines that appeared are:

03.00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4401-B0 100Base0TX (rev 02)
0c.00.0 Network Controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN (rev 01)

So my system does recognized the wireless card, I just don't know how to get Ubuntu to find available networks. I tried adding in our network as a 'hidden' network - which it isn't and that didn't work, so I'm up for any suggestions in how to get the computer to connect to the wifi network?

Debian Installation :: Debian Squeeze On The Dell Mini 9?

May 22, 2010

This topic began in the Debian Development forum here I have successfully completed both the install and the after installation configuration. I have a fully functional system on this little baby, inspite of the fact that wireless (Broadcom bcm4312), ethernet (Realtek) and sound were initially broken.

There is a lot of assistance out there on the web. In the previous thread, I was having trouble installing any debian on a usb stick. The issues that needed resolving were 1. Bad stick

2. Incompatible kernels between boot.img and .iso

3. The method of copying .iso to the stick that finally worked was wget My first successful usb install was Lenny. Even though I upgraded the stock system with lenny-backports, I could not get wireless, ethernet or sound working the only connection I could get to the internet was through my 3g stick and that was not performing up to it's capability. I manually configured wvdial to get that working.

I attempted an upgrade to squeeze several times and each time the upgrade trashed the system. I finally found squeeze boot.img and .iso files from an eee pc blog. This allowed a fresh install of Squeeze and I was making progress. The little atom processor would not handle the b43-fwcutter driver, so I compiled one from the Broadcom site written especially for the atom processor. Now I had cable broadband supplied wireless. I got my ethernet working with help from the Gnome site technical specs on Network Manager. Simply changing ifupdown=false to ifupdown=true in the network manager config file.

Sound was activated by help from a blog entitled "Debian on the Dell Mini 9" My head is spinning now or I would be more specific and instructive on all I did to get this baby up and running. If anyone asks, I may do a how-to.

PS: Posted from that Dell Mini 9 running Debian Squeeze.

EDITED: Correction of typing errors.

Debian Installation :: Which Squeeze Iso Image Needed For An Old Dell

I bought it years ago but have not been using it for the past couple of years. I don't know the specs of this computer unfortunately. I don't know whether it's 32 or 64 bits or what's its architecture. Can you help me locate the right iso image for this hardware? I want to install Squeeze if it's possible.
