I recently installed the XFCE spin of Debian (amd64) on my Lenovo L440. I tried installing it before, but apparently the 3.2 kernel that ships with Wheezy doesn't properly support the proprietary firmware for the wireless card, blah blah. So I wound up using Windows 8.1 for a bit, and then Fedora (boo). Anyway, with the wheezy-backports kernel (3.16.7-ckt4-3~bpo70+1) everything works like a charm. Everything, that is, apart from the sound card — the entire system is completely mute. Well, apart from the system beeper. I searched the forum and found another thread, but that guy was (for some reason) just running dwm — I figured XFCE might feature a more complete sound system. But maybe the output he gave will be useful in my case as well:
I can't my system because of this error: Code: linux-firmware: /lib/firmware/radeon/R700_rlc.bin exists in filesystem Note that in the beginning, it asks:
Code: :: Replace kernel26-firmware with core/linux-firmware? [Y/n] There are so many updates by now that the list fills in a few pages in the terminal! Also, I wonder why so many Arch updates get stuck or broken compared to almost any other distro? Is it poorly designed packages? Is it a design flaw in pacman/the package format?
after installing Ubuntu Natty Narwhal 11.04, I'm experiencing tons and tons of complications with the wireless Internet connection. I have solved most of them. Now I have only one thing left. When I hit the drop-down menu for wireless connections, it says "Wireless connection (Firmware missing)"
I have installed the driver for my wireless card but what is the firmware? I honestly don't know what it is although it's very basic. I have a Broadcom 43xx as my wireless card (specifically 4306). How do I get the firmware for it? Do I find it in Windows? Also I cannot get b43-fwcutter because I have absolutely to Internet connection on Ubuntu. To post this, I'm using Windows.
Although Win7 is not bad either, I'm really happy using new Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat on my notebook. Since I've been using Linux (SimplyMepis, then Arch) on my desktop, I'm really happy that I found a Linux distro which suits me the best. BTW, I have a Toshiba T130-10g which I love for its long battery life. However, I would like to solve some issues/dilemmas/questions (and I searched for s the solutions of some of them on Google so please don't tell me to use it...)
1) How do I turn off Wifi completely in a comfortable way? I tried sudo iwconfig wlan0 txpower off but it threw: Error for wireless request "Set Tx Power" (8B26): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported. I even edited something in interfaces configuration file, but it did nothing. Oh, I forgot, my notebook doesn't have a hardware switch to turn off wifi.
2) Setting brightness doesnt work for my laptop. I can set it by udo setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=25 but I'm looking for a more comfortable solution. BTW, editing one GRUB configuration file didn't help and ended in booting into command line (it was something with adding backlight=vendor or something like that...)
3) My touchpad is sometimes too sensitive and clicks somewhere sometimes when I don't want to it. How to make clicks less sensitive? I tried to play with some mouse settings but it didn't help much but perhaps I'm setting a bad parameter.
4) I remember that back in KDE 3.5 times a network manager icon had a setting to switch on net statistics so I could very easily see how much I downloaded every day. But, since KDE 3.5 is not supported anymore, I stopped using it in refusal to update to KDE 4.XX and switched to GNOME. Since for some months I'll have a limited download connection, is there something esay in GNOME to watch my net statistics that wouldn't be deleted after reboot/shutdown?...
Having a problem with my Belkin wireless adapter when trying to stream music to my Pinnacle Soundbridge.The network connection is usually rock steady but drops anywhere between and few second and a few minutes after streaming music. Network manager still shows the connection to my home network as active but it is not. The connection comes back when I unplug the dongle and plug it back in. I found the following message repeated in the syslog
phy3 -> rt2x00usb_vendor_request: Error - Vendor Request 0x06 failed for offset 0x3040 with error -110
Only thing I have noticed is that it refers to rt2x00 when I had thought it used the rt73usb driver.Had the PC and the Soundbridge for a number of years without any problems but I did recently have to reinstall Ubuntu from scratch. Currently running Ubuntu 10.10
I'm working on a old piece of code on linux, after compiling without porblem at the execution I have this response:
src/xproject/xproject: Ok, a color display! :-) X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) Major opcode of failed request: 78 (X_CreateColormap) Serial number of failed request: 7 Current serial number in output stream: 15
looking at the source code I think the problem is related at the depth of my system 24 bit and the depth of this old piece of code 8 bit. Unfortunately also I don't have experience in programming the XVideo and if someone can give me some help in programming the XVideo interface
Anyway, I've a decent understanding of the various Linux console commands and know how to work my way around a text editor or file system. But I can't seem to fix what's wrong with my computer. I'll list my info here and then discuss the most pressing issues that I need help with.
It's a 17" PowerBook G4, with Airport Extreme (which I understand is a headache all on its own: I'll likely get to that later)
Results of ~$ lspci:
I downloaded the most recent .iso for the PowerPC from [url], specifically the 4.4 GB DVD copy.
During installation, I told it to install only the Desktop Environment and Base System. Installation went through without a hitch, though it failed to connect properly to my Wireless card.
The first issue I encounter after booting is during the login. When logging in as a non-root user, I'm told to change my password immediately (root enforced). I've done this every time I've logged in. Immediately after when I log in I'm told that the system clock is wrong: It's currently set to Jan. 1, 1970. If I try to change it, I get a message saying that I can't, and my desktop won't load properly. If I ignore the system clock issue and try to change it in System > Administration > Time and Date later, after entering my admin password I get a message that says
Failed to run time-admin as user root.
Failed to communicate with gksu-helper.
Changing password for root.
Apparently the password issue is related to the Time and Date settings (according to Google), but I can't fix those because it wants me to change my password.
I recently decided to make use of a computer that had been put away for a while by installing ubuntu on it. I went to do a full install of 11.04 (deleting all files and the other OS, windows) and everything went smooth until I realized that the wifi-card firmware had been deleted along with everything else. I can use an ethernet cable to connect to the internet, but no wi-fi. I tried googling to find the appropriate firmware, but none worked.
I just made a fresh installation of Ubuntu Karmic, but I can't set up my screen resolution correctly. My monitor resolution (1680 x 1050) is not listed in 'Display Preferences' or in my card's proprietary software (ATI Catalyst). The maximum resolution I can select is 1440 x 900.xrandr detects a maximum resolution of 1440 x 1440 and displays the same list of screen resolutions as 'Display Preferences'.
I recently installed two PC with debian lenny (kernel 2.6.26). One is called serveur-debian1 and the second one serveur-debian2. I have installed gnome,samba, mysql5, apache2, php5, and Virtualbox,bridge-tools on them. On serveur-debian2, i installed an other virtual debian lenny with apache2,mysql5,php5,nagios and centreon on it to view my network. I remember having installed a soft to access nntp on serveur-debian2 in order to test nagios.
Since a few days, i have problem to access to my servers. rom my windows 7 client, i try to ping serveur-debian1. Response is OK but not for all resquets Always from the same computer, i try to ping serveur-debian2. Response is OK but not for all again.
When i launch a ping on serveur-debian1 and serveur debian2 at the same time i have:
ping 1 to 10: serveur-debian1: response OK serveur-debian2: no response ping 11to 14: serveur-debian1: no response serveur-debian2: response OK ping 15 to 25: serveur-debian1: respone OK serveur-debian2: @ip serveur-debian1 network unreachable (there's no error, it shows me the ip of serveur-debian1)
If i switch on the debian virtual server on the serveur-debian2, and i ping it at the same time, the response is OK for all resquests. The problem is very strange. I can't have a correct connection and when i launch a request from a software which access the mysql server, the requests failed ...
I installed linux-image-4.1.0-trunk, when I boot into the kernel there's no wireless available. Dmesg indicates seems like the firmware is loaded, although firmware-iwlwifi is installed: ... [ 11.047031] iwlwifi 0000:04:00.0: firmware: failed to load iwlwifi-7265D-13.ucode (-2) [ 11.047039] iwlwifi 0000:04:00.0: Direct firmware load for iwlwifi-7265D-13.ucode failed with error -2
I performed an update that has caused issues with my wireless. Errors relating to wireless firmware missing and consequently no internet connection.
I've been through this before with my 2008 macbook air BCM card whose firmware isn't included in installs. In the past I've manually installed the b43-fwcutter package an extracted some firmware... That doesn't seem to be working here.
I've used [URL]i ... cefirmware to troubleshoot. I have not been able to get b43 or wl to work.
I attempted to install the "firmware-b43-installer_015-14.1_all.deb" package; however it depends on wget to download and install "broadcom-wl-5.100.138.tar.bz2" from wlfinger.com.
So I manually installed b43-fwcutter and used it to extract the broadcom-wl-5 file referenced....
modprobe wl says wl doesn't exist and modprobe b43 doesn't seem to work.
Code: Select allsudo dpkg -i broadcom-sta-dkms_188.8.131.52-8_all.deb Setting up broadcom-sta-dkms (184.108.40.206-8) ... Loading new broadcom-sta-220.127.116.11 DKMS files... Building only for 3.2.0-4-amd64 Module build for the currently running kernel was skipped since the kernel source for this kernel does not seem to be installed.
I tried something from broadcom that produced make errors "/lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/build: No such file or directory"... I think this means I need some kernel development packages, broadcom says:
Code: Select allOn Fedora install 'kernel-devel' (Development Package for building kernel modules to match the kernel) from the Package Manager (System-> Administration-> Add/Remove Software).
On Ubuntu, you will need headers and tools. Try these commands: # apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic # apt-get build-dep linux
I'm having trouble install this stuff without the net and not sure installing generic headers and build-dep outside of apt-get is the way to go... linux-headers-3.2.0-4-amd64_3.2.57-3+deb7u2_amd64.deb has alot of dependencies that would take me a while to find and download.
Is this card supported in Squeeze by either the non-free firmware or the proprietary driver? I just got one to stick into an older box that will be going to a college girl that wants the 3D desktop in KDE. The built-in video was a joke and wouldn't even work without compositing. It was one of those crappy, non-standard pieces of crap known as a "Unichrome" (not the pro).
DELL Inspiron 15 3543 (3000 Series)5th Generation Intel Core i5-5200U Processor (3M Cache, up to 2.70 GHz).I have installed Debian 8 and received following message relating missing firmware files rtl_nic/rtl8106e-1.fw (EDIT: I understand this is not wireless adapter, but wired adapter which appears to be working ok as I can connect to internet ok.)The wireless adapter wasn't recognised so I used LAN cable and completed the install.this is details of wireless adapter....
I spend all day, trying to make bluetooth working with my phone Nokia 2600. First, i try'it with bluez-utils 3.7, and later with 3.9, but i no luck. So, what i have. I use hcitool to scan for my device, and find'it. Next, i connect to my phone with success. Then i try pairing with my phone, using "auth", but here i got error: HCI authentication request failed: Input/output error
I just got myself a Dell Inspiron 1440. And decided to install my favorite distro Debian. I got the installation to go with no issue and all seems to be working fine. However the wireless isn't working. NetworkManager doesnt even detect a wireless card. I followed the instructions here and installed the b43-fwcutter and then issued the modprobe b43 and modprobe b43legacy commands. Then I issued the iwconfig command and this was the output.
Also, I've been doing some research and found out about some file located /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules. So I looked in mine and found out that only my eth0 is added.
Basically I want to change the resolution on my computer as the desktop is partially lost off of the screen. The needed resolution is not available so I am attempting to add a new resolution. I have used the [URL] for information on how to do this. I am completely new to Ubuntu and entering code so a TON of the results online have meant jibberish to me as people leave out the basics which I cannot find. Here is what I've done so far in the terminal...
I enter: xrandr I get: Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192 HDMI-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) VGA-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) DVI-0 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 698mm x 392mm 1920x1080 60.0*+ 1920x1080i 30.0 1280x720 60.0 2020x1180_60.00 (0x169) 200.0MHz h: width 2024 start 2160 end 2376 total 2728 skew 0 clock 73.3KHz v: height 1180 start 1183 end 1193 total 1224 clock 59.9Hz
I enter: xrandr --newmode <Mode''Line> I get: bash: syntax error near unexpected token 'newline'
Already I see an error message though without knowing what else to do I try to continue the code as follows... I enter: cvt 2020 1180 I get: # 2024x1180 59.90 Hz (CVT) hsync: 73.31 kHz; pclk: 200.00 MHz Modeline "2024x1180_60.00" 200.00 2024 2160 2376 2728 1180 1183 1193 1224 -hsync +vsync
At this point I see it shows 2024x1180 when I actually entered 2020x1180 which I find odd, though I try the next part with both 2024 and 2020 with same results. I enter: xrandr --newmode "2020x1180_60.00" 200.00 2024 2160 2376 2728 1180 1183 1193 1224 -hsync +vsync
I normally get no response after with a blank cursor, though one time I got: X Error of failed request: BadName (named color or font does not exist) Major opcode of failed request: 150 (RANDR) Minor opcode of failed request: 16 (RRCreateMode) Serial number of failed request: 27 Current serial number in output stream: 27
I recently ran into the following problem when trying to ssh into my Ubuntu 11.04 server:
>> ssh email@example.com PTY allocation request failed on channel 0
I don't know for sure, but I think this happened after one of the latest Ubuntu updates I installed. In case it's of relevance, I'm remoting in from Terminal (Mac OS X 10.7 - Lion). Edit: The problem seems to be with Lion..
I need to install b43 driver for my bcm4315 wifi card. I herd that bcm4315 need a firmware called firmware-b43legacy-installer is needed to do this.So how can i install the driver...I have installed it once and when i am trying to activate it using ubuntu drivers and install it shows error system error:archives failed().
I'm trying to manually connect my wireless adapter to my router using WPA. I'm using Madwifi drivers for my D-Link DWL-G630. I keep getting the same error " Association request to the driver failed". I can connect to my router using wep through the GUI. I can not connect using the terminal. I created my /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf file
I installed amanda on a client that uses Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.
