Debian Configuration :: Dell Mini 9 Mic -- Not Working?

Jun 30, 2011

Im running the latest Debian version, 6.0 on my Dell Mini 9.Webcam and sound work, but microphone is a no-go.In Alsamixer (1.0.23), I have Capture, Digital, and Mic settings all the way up. There are no options for adjusting "Front" mic settings. (May have been for older alsamixer versions?)In Sound Recorder, playback has loud noise/feedback? I'm not sure how to interpret the above, but I am just trying to offer as much relevant background information as I can.I've been scouring forums for the answer, but to no avail. Most questions/answers are from 2008, and couldn't find a solution. I'm not very handy with the Linux machine, but love to learn / am learning.

Debian Configuration :: Jessie - Wireless Not Working Dell Inspiron 1525

Sep 19, 2015

I have a problem with my laptop Dell Inspiron 1525 wireless on Jessie Cinnamon.

I have installed the b43 firmware and after that everything seemed working but just for a few seconds.

I have tried to reboot and after that I can't browse the internet just for a few seconds and after that Iceweasel loading and loading and nothing's happening.

I can't surf on the net just with cable but the wifi setup shows everything is okay 95% signal strength and connected.
Also tried reinstall the firmware and reboot and it's all the same after.

I can easily use my wifi with my smartphone too.

Debian :: Console Resolution On Dell Mini 10?

Sep 16, 2010

I am running Lenny of a Dell Mini 10, using only the console. I want to get the resolution smaller that 80 on the horizontal axis, but I can't find the right setting for vga in /boot/grub/menu.lst.

Inserting various values makes the dell give me list of possible video modes at boot, but none of these are higher than 80xSomething. It offers VESA modes that are choosing these results in unreadably tiny text, and anyway I wouldn't know how to edit in order to make these mode take effect automatically.

Can anyone tell give me a value that works for vga on Dell Mini 10 that produces a smaller resolution that 80xSomething? If not, can someone suggests a different way to obtain the same result?

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 Multimedia :: Dell Mini 3100 Won't Boot From Flash Drive

Jan 2, 2011

I've installed Debian using the boot.img.gz file onto the jump drive, as well as Linux mint and crunchbang with unetbootin all to no avail; pressing F9 at bios startup refuses to show the jump drive. Booting from the drive is enabled (as far as I can see) in the BIOS.

OpenSUSE Network :: Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card & Dell Touchpad?

Jan 12, 2010

My Dell Vostro 1520's Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card must not have been set-up correctly, as the Network Manager won't even let me select the wireless tab. Please just explain to me, step by step, what exactly I must do to make it work! Additionally, I can't figure out how to disable my Touchpad's Tap to Click funtionality, which must be done if I'm to effectively use my current KDE installation of openSUSE

Debian Configuration :: Swap USB WiFi For Broadcom HP Mini 110

Aug 21, 2015

A friend gave me an HP Mini 110 that I can actually use in some situations. I installed Debian 8 with LXDE. It runs well except for the expected lack of driver for the Broadcom 4312 wireless chip. I installed wl using the method shown at [URL] ....

It works fine except that it takes very long to set up WiFi at boot (1 min 30 sec or more every boot--this is a rather frail Atom processor) and the WiFi reception seems poor (65% from an excellent router at 25 feet).

I'm thinking of getting a Panda 300Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter (reportedly using the Ralink RT5372 chipset) and removing the Broadcom driver. I have 2 questions:

1. Could I expect the Panda not to slow my boot time so much? I'm not knowledgeable enough to tell whether there is stable kernel support of this device, although the manufacturer says repeatedly that it works with most Linux distributions.

2. To remove wl is Code: Select allmodprobe -r wl the correct approach?

Ubuntu Installation :: Get From 9.04 To 10.4 On Dell Mini 9?

May 1, 2010

How best to get from 9.04 to 10.04 on my Dell Mini 9?

I hadn't upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 because I read that the WiFi card no longer worked with 9.10 on the DM9. What I see now indicates that to get from 9.04 to 10.04 I MUST go thru 9.10. If that is the case, I won't be able to download 10.04 because I won't have a WiFi connection.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Broken In A Dell Mini 9?

Jun 11, 2010

it was working fine. Then when I tried to turn my Dell Mini 9 off it did not respond so I "forced" to turn it off with button. Now it does not find the OS! The only solution is to reinstall 10.04 netbook version again? (I'm downloading iso right now because I had already deleted it...) Will some kind of "repair broken version" option appear when I try to install it? And what about my docs? I lost some docs when I installed 10.04 and uninstalle the original version 8.04... I do not want to lost them again!

Ubuntu :: Dell Mini With 8.04 - Installing New 11.04

I have no clue what is taking up room now. I've went from like 2.gig to down to 1 gig. I have run the basic clean auto clean and such that I can find thru google. But I have been wanting to install the new 11.04. I have no ethernet cords around and how good is the chance I can upgrade and everything go smoothly and since I have no USB stick and only 1 gig of free space. Can I install with GMountiso <virtual drive>?

OpenSUSE Network :: Can't Get WLAN Up On Dell Mini 10v?

Jul 25, 2010

I can't get WLAN up on my Dell Mini 10v (BCM 4312)/openSUSE 11.3/LXDE. And yes, I have thoroughly read iwfingers's 'Getting your Wireless to Work'. After installing openSUSE 11.3 ifconfig can see eth0, l0 and wlan0. No WLAN running. dsmesq|grep firmware prompts me to '/usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware"

After having done that and reboot ifconfig can only see eth0 and l0. Installing (current ones from Packman) does, Shall I try to install the drivers without installing the firmware first?

Why does install a new default kernel? Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04 had no problems with WLAN.

Ubuntu :: Video Won't Play On A Dell Mini 10

Mar 18, 2010

i've got a dell mini 10 w/ 9.10 nbr on it, and videos played in either totem or vlc won't play, and result in the player crashing. it almost crashes the whole desktop. i can usually recover from ctrl-alt-f1 and killing the process or restarting the gui.

i've got no idea how to fix it. it's got a gma500 and that poulsubo (sp?) video driver. flash works reasonably well for a netbook though. i can watch videos vids ok- just have ot shy away from full screen videos, and especially not get tempted by full screen hi-def videos...

I installed Touchpad and its says:
GSynaptics couldn't initialize. You have to set 'SHMConfig' 'true' in xorg.conf or XF86Config to use GSynaptics

I find out at this link this link that I need to create a xorg.conf file by typing:
sudo Xorg -configure

In terminal. However, when I do I get the following message, and no such file gets created.

Debian Configuration :: Netgear WG511v2 On A Dell Latitude C600

Apr 1, 2010

I've installed Debian on a Dell Latitude C600 and I've managed to get all of the hardware functioning except the WiFi adapter. The laptop is using a Netgear WG511v2 PCMCIA interface. I've extracted the WG511v2.INF and WG511v2XP.SYS files and I believe they are successfully installed using NDISWRAPPER.

The WiFi adapter's green LED flickers and the yellow LED periodically flashes, which would seem to indicate that the adapter is attempting to connect to a network.

I believe the problem that I'm having is related to configuring the wlan0 interface with the proper security credentials to attach to the WiFi network. I'm using WPA2 with AES for encrypting. The key is 64 hexadecimal characters.

how to configure the wlan0 interface with the proper security credentials. The Network Manager applet only offers WPA2 Personal as a configuration option.

Fedora Networking :: Replacement Wifi Card - Dell Mini 10v?

Jan 6, 2011

I own a Dell Mini 10v netbook, I love the little thing, except I hate the Broadcom wireless card, I would much rather have a card that can use open source drivers. I have been searching on Google, looking on forums and looking on the hardware sites, but I cannot find a replacement card.

The problem is the tiny Dell has a tiny place to put the card and according to Dell and Broadcom, it is a "halfcard", which I have no idea what that is.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: WLAN On Dell Mini 10 (Inspiron 1012)?

Sep 26, 2010

I just want to report that I managed to get WLAN running on my Dell Mini 10 (Inspiron 1012) with OpenSuse 11.3 KDE.
This one contains a Broadcom 4312 WLAN card


lspci -vnn|grep Broadcom
07:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01)
0b:00.0 Multimedia controller [0480]: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:1615]
Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:1615]

I just installed the broadcom-wl and broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop packages from the packman repository. Then there is a new entry in the bootmanager menu. Using that one, WLAN works fine.By the way: Can somebody explain me the difference between the broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop, broadcom-wl-kmp-default, broadcom-wl-kmp-pae, broadcom-wl-kmp-xen packages? I did not find any documentation about that.
