Debian Configuration :: Firewire_ohci: Swap Not Done Yet?

Sep 4, 2010

I added as an experiment a swapfile , see topic Put an extra line in fstab to activate swapfile during boot.When I reboot a bootmessage is shown : activating lvm and md swap....Result is that bootime is lengthened by 10 seconds....dmesg shows four lines containing " firewire_ohci: swap not done yet "I don't use firewire, should I blacklist modules ?What about " activating lvm " in the bootmessage ? I don't use lvm.Update : just found out that dmesg contains the same lines " firewire_ohci: swap not done yet " when swapfile is not enabled. Without swapfile boottime is normal : grub -> kdm in 17 seconds.

Debian Configuration :: How To Disable Swap Permanently

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?

Debian Configuration :: LVM Volume - Swap Not Working / Activated

Jul 29, 2010

I'm running Debian testing/unstable, with my swap on an lvm volume. When I boot into the system, the swap doesn't become activated, even though there are messages that point to the contrary (for instance: "activating swap file...done"). After it's done booting, I run the command "free" and it shows that there is no space allocated to swap. "swapon -a" doesn't load the swap file either -- I have to do "swapon /dev/mapper/xxx-xxx". The swap appears in fstab, and also in /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume.

Debian Configuration :: System Locks At Swap Activation?

Dec 12, 2010

This laptop that I am trying to get Debian 5 working on is occasionally locking up during boot at "Activating Swap..." WTF could cause such a bizarre thing? The swap partition is just empty space. Activating must be nothing more than confirming it exists and mounting it.

Ubuntu :: Scripting A Permanent CTRL / CAPS Swap In Gnome?

Mar 3, 2011

I have a bash script that I use to configure a vanilla Ubuntu (10.10 Maverick) installation to be exactly the way I want it. I make extensive use of gconftool-2 to configure the desktop, set up shortcut keys, etc.

Now, I'm trying to swap the CTRL and CAPS keys. I have found two ways of doing this: In Gnome, go to System -> Preferences -> Keyboard -> Layout -> Options and make the change in there. This works well, but I don't know how to script this; the setting doesn't seem to be stored in the usual place as I can't find it with gconf-editor. Add the line setxkbmap -option "ctrl:swapcaps" to my .bashrc file. That works too, until I suspend the machine & then resume it. At that point the CTRL and CAPS behaviour return to normal, until I cause .bashrc to be run again by opening a new shell. This behaviour has been reported as a bug in RedHat. Edited to add: JeffG on [URL] suggested adding the call to setxkbmap to my gdm.conf file in the script section; that resulted in a failure to load X on startup.

switching those keys that is both permanent, and can be scripted?

Fedora :: Keyboard Doesn't Work After Setting - Swap Ctrl And Caps Lock

I'm running fedora 13 on a Dell Latitude E6500. It's a dual 64-bit system.

It was working, but then I tried to swap caps lock and control.

I used:
Then, under Control Key Position, I selected swap caps lock and control.

Now, my keyboard won't work in the Keyboard Preferences test area or in any other window or when the screen-lock comes on.

I tried logging out. I tried rebooting. I tried deleting my .gnome2 directory. Nothing seems to work. I can use the keyboard on other accounts, so the keyboard is not the problem.

Ubuntu :: Map Ctrl+W In Hebrew Layout(which Is Actually A Ctrl+') To Be A Ctrl+w?

Jan 5, 2010

I have 3 layouts: USA, Russian and Hebrew. In Hebrew the W key is mapped to apostrophe, so Ctrl+W in Hebrew layout doesn't close tabs in Firefox. There is no workaround for it as I see by now, so I am trying to get it work this way:I want to map Ctrl+W in Hebrew layout(which is actually a Ctrl+') to be a Ctrl+w. Here is what I got from xmodmap:Code:$ xmodmap -pke | grep 25keycode 25 = w W Cyrillic_tse Cyrillic_TSE apostrophe WAs you can see, there are pairs for each layout, each pair tells what happens without and with the Shift key pressed.

Fedora :: Ushare Configuration - Last Line Stop Process In The Terminal Via Ctrl+C

May 30, 2009

I just installed ushare on Fedora 10 (yum install ushare is all it took to do), and followed the guidance then to configure sharing for an Xbox 360, [URL] the code below. Notice the last line...due to stopping process in the terminal via Ctrl+C. It appears to me, based on this ending UPNP sharing, that the first line will need to be run each time want to turn on sharing, right? I thought this would simply configure ushare sharing one time, and possibly intiate some sort of file sharing service on each boot, but this appears not to be the case. If I am right, does anyone know how I can develop a script to run at boot to allow ushare to open sharing and keep it open?

Ubuntu Installation :: Why Does 10.10 Have 'Swap Area' Configuration

Oct 12, 2010

I was so excited that finally I can get the newest version of Ubuntu installed on my computer. Yesterday I downloaded the iso file and emptied my F:/ disk, hoping I can install it this morning. Everything was perfect until I met 'swap area'. I thought it was just that the installing program needed some free space during the process. Storage hierarchy, caching, something like that. So I configured my E:/ disk as the 'swap area'.

Bad decision! After everything was done, I rebooted ubuntu, only finding that my E:/ no longer existed!!!! I couldn't believe my eyes, so I rebooted back to Win7. E:/ disk wasn't there any more! Now I have to accept the bitter truth. All my journals, photos, and documents are ruined. My point is that: if something like 'swap area' is not so common sense to everybody, why does it have to be there? And if it will format that disk, why aren't I noticed? Not so long ago, I heard some one claimed that the ubuntu10.10 installing process would be revolutionized, much more user-friendly. Well, this is not what I've expected.

Ubuntu :: Freezes Mouse After Changing A Tab (with Ctrl+tab, Alt+#) Or Closing It (ctrl+w)?

Nov 11, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 x64 and already am really annoyed by Firefox, which freezes my mouse after changing a tab (with ctrl+tab, alt+#) or closing it (ctrl+w). After about one second, i can continue working as usual. Changing Tabs by just clicking on one does not freeze anything...Maybe some of you would think now if I am crazy because of complaining about such a little thing, but it is really annoying if you are used to work fluently with ff.Edit:I today noticed, that not only shortcuts in firefox, but all Hotkeys freeze my mouse for a second. For examle ctrl+c, ctrl+v, super+e or anything else.Do you have any Idea what causes this behaviour? Reinstalling ubuntu didn't change anything

Debian :: Dell XPS L501 And Debian - Ctrl+Alt+F1/2/3/4/ Doesn't Work ?

Jan 22, 2011

I'm trying to install Debian on Dell XPS L501, and there are lots of problems...

1- Resolution is 800x600! I guess, I need to add that there is no xorg.conf file, and I couldn't create it by running `Xorg -configure`. It said the number of screens didn't match number of detected devices or something like that! I'd be really happy if this gets solved!

2- Ctrl+Alt+F1/2/3/4/... doesn't work! Sometimes Alt+Directional keys works. but most of the time it doesn't!

3- I can't get the loud speakers to work, and I couldn't compile Alsa from source... I'll try again, but does anyone know if there is a specific package I need to install to get them to work? (Realtek ID 665)

4- Keys are not working right... Function keys don't work... But the worse thing, is that if let's say Fn+F2 is supposed to disable wireless, F2 does!

OpenSUSE :: Ctrl+z And Ctrl+c Do Not Work Without A Third Keystroke

Feb 3, 2010

I just spent a few days ripping out all the broken/buggy apps that are in the opensuse 11.2 official repos so I can finally get working software(openoffice, thunderbird, wine, eclipse, rubygems, rails, and a few others required getting the "official" versions from their respective websites to avoid strange behavior and outright broken functionality).

All of which makes updating more annoying and time-consuming. Why are opensuse packages so different anyway? Anyway, the last thing that I have noticed to fix is Konsole. For some really bizarre reason ctrl+z and ctrl+c do not work without a third keystroke: enter.Maybe this is something new with the KDE team, since they seem bent on making simple things that already work more complex, but given my experience with crappy packages in the suse repos, I am thinking this is the problem. I have looked over all the config settings that I can find and nothing fixes this affront to productivity.

Debian Multimedia :: Right Ctrl Not Working / What To Do?

Mar 12, 2010

Right Ctrl has traditionally been the key used to un-grab the keyboard/mouse in VirtualBox. I've never had a problem with it before, but on my laptop it doesn't work. When I press the key, I get this xev output code...

So, I am pretty confident that the key itself is functional. However, it doesn't seem to do anything in applications. For example, keyboard shortcuts in Kate (such as Ctrl+a to select all) do not work with the right Ctrl key.

Nov 27, 2010

I have a laptop bought it Germany. It has a pretty standard keyboard, with the bottom left most keyboard being the Fn which enables controls on: Bluetooth, WiFi, Sleep and other functionality. My trouble is that both Ubunut, and Linux Mint Debian edition recognize this key as CTRL, thus not giving me the option to use these functions Im pretty clueless how to change it. Currently my console setup is giving this keyboard a standart 104-PC keyboard¦ Just adding some info about this laptop:

product: TW8/SW8/DW8
vendor: Quanta
version: TBD
More info:

The bottom row of the keyboard has: Fn, Strg,Win, Alt, Space, Alt Gr, Menu,Strg, Left, Down, right keys. Is there a some one here who knows which layout is this ?

Debian :: How To Change TTY Resolution Ctrl Alt F1 Black Screen

Nov 18, 2015

Now that I'm more lucid I can adjust the format a bit. If I try opening the TTY the screen goes completely black after visualizing few artifact on the bottom of the screen.

Pressing Ctrl+Alt+F7 brings me back safely to the GUI

So far I tried to modify the /etc/defaults/grub file to uncomment the grub resolution and the grub_terminal to no avail. Now at least it seams to waste some less time to load the grub (it took something like 15 sec before) but it lost the previous green/torquoise background and now it's white char on black background.

On a side note pressing C on the grub to reach the grub console gave me some answer I don't know how to deal with... I was trying to use vbeinfo but it didn't found the command and so I tried the insmod:

Photo(large) of the complete grub console session wrote:grub>
grub> videoinfo
List of supported video modes:
Legend: mask/position=red/green/blue/reserved
grub> videotest
error: no suitable video mode found.
grub> insmod vbe
error: file `/boot/grub/x86_64-efi/vbe.mod' not found
