Debian Installation :: 1024x768 Diamond Viper After Upgrading Debian 6

Apr 25, 2011

I have a Diamond Viper Video Card, Riva TNT2. It worked great with Lenny. I upgraded to Squeeze and the most I can get is 1024-768 which is not what I want. I have read a number of posts but none seem to be specific to my situation. My monitor is a Samsung synchmaster 205BW. xserver-xorg-video-nv is installed as is xserver-xorg-video-nouveau.

Debian :: Can't Get Higher Resolution Than 1024x768 (NVIDIA)

Aug 26, 2015

I installed Debian 8 Jessie with the GNOME 3 desktop environment and I couldn't get pass the login screen after several reboots. Since I read that NVIDIA graphics are problematic, I decided to reinstall the system but selected Mate desktop, which appears to be less graphic intensive than GNOME 3. It worked. However, I can't get a higher resolution than 1024x768 (In Windows I could). The Mate settings in the "System → Preferences → Monitors" does not show higher resolutions.

The information of the graphics card is this:

Code: Select all00:0d.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation C61 [GeForce 6150SE nForce 430] [10de:03d0] (rev a2)

Before I try to install proprietary drivers as instructed in [URL] ...., I'd like to see if there's anything to try first with the default stuff installed by the system, because that page says:

As of jessie, the need for the proprietary drivers is pretty much over - nouveau now works quite well and works with dual-headed displays by simple and easy configuring from within your desktop(for KDE see System_Settings/Hardware/Display_and_Monitor/Display_Configuration) . The proprietary drivers don't provide normal logging and can be a hidden source of problems.

Debian Multimedia :: Getting 1024x768 Screen Resolution

Sep 3, 2010

I've googled the issue and had a little luck, though I can't seem to change my xorg.conf file because permissions are defailed. This is the example xorg.conf file I wrote based upon my original and the modifications:

# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.

Debian Configuration :: Nouveau: Resolution Re-ducted To 1024x768?

Oct 28, 2010

Motherboard: M2N-MX with Athlon X2 3600 from 2006 onwards
00:0d.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C61 [GeForce 6150SE nForce 430] (rev a2)
Kernel: Debian Sid with 2.6.32-5-amd64 and custom 2.6.36-rc7
Monitor: Samsung 712N, 17inch, with native 1280x1024 resolution

Everything was fine with both kernels with custom 1280x1024 resolution upto yesterday. But when I rebooted today, first I noticed that X stopped working. After updating xorg.conf to 1024x768, it started working . After going through the kernel log in /var/log/messages, I noticed the following differences

Yesterdays log:

nouveau 0000:00:0d.0: Detected 64MiB VRAM
nouveau 0000:00:0d.0: 64 MiB GART (aperture)
nouveau 0000:00:0d.0: Saving VGA fonts


There is an extra "Load detected" line and the resolution got reduced from 1280x1024 to 1024x768.

Debian Multimedia :: Distorted Resolution - Only Running At 1024x768 ?

Oct 1, 2010

I recently installed Debian 5.0 (Lenny) on a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. I have been banging my head trying to figure out why my laptop display (15.6" optimum resolution 1366x768) is only running at 1024x768. This was not a problem in Ubuntu even as far back as 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) which came pre-installed.

I am running kernel 2.6.32 (from Backports) to get WiFi to work and it still hasn't remedied the video oddities.

How do I either:

1) Letterbox the 1024x768 so that it isn't distorted?

or, more preferably,

2) Display in the full 1366x768?

My video card is:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)

I also have the xserver-xorg-video-intel driver from the stable repositories installed.

Debian Multimedia :: Xorg Not Showing (1024x768) Resolution Of Computer

May 3, 2015

I'm now working to install Debian 8 on another computer since yesterday. Another Linux, and as always, endless list of problems.

- A computer that was freezing at every installation attempt (but never at the same moment) during installation when the Broacom cardbus adapter was connected (it's a chance that it is easy to remove and I found it quickly... and it is working once installation is finished)

- Turning to sleep mode after 15 seconds if I don't quickly try to login

- BOINC receive no work

- Tray icons are here but invisible - no icons, just gray space

- xserver-xorg-video-savage is installed, but I have resolution problems, and weird glittering horizontal lines when the computer is working (as on my other PC with the SiS video card).

On Debian 7.8, it was working fine for having the 1024x768 native resolution of this laptop screen.

But, with debian 8, the max resolution is now "800x600" and with this screen, there is no smooth effect : the image is a disaster.

Here is "lspci -nn" :

Code: Select all00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: VIA Technologies, Inc. P/KN266 Host Bridge [1106:3156]
00:01.0 PCI bridge [0604]: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8633 [Apollo Pro266 AGP] [1106:b091]
00:0a.0 CardBus bridge [0607]: O2 Micro, Inc. OZ601/6912/711E0 CardBus/SmartCardBus Controller [1217:6972]
00:0c.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394) [0c00]: Texas Instruments TSB43AB21 IEEE-1394a-2000 Controller (PHY/Link) [104c:8026]
00:10.0 USB controller [0c03]: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82xxxxx UHCI USB 1.1 Controller [1106:3038] (rev 80)

[Code] ....

How to confirm that my Video card is included into xserver-xorg-video-savage package ? How do I know if the driver is loaded ? How to modify xorg confifugration files in this modern flavour of Linux in order to force adding the 1024x768 resolution ? I already succeed into /etc/default/grub and "update-grub" for the bootloader screen but I want it too in the desktop environment.

Debian Installation :: Upgrading From LMDE To Testing

Apr 22, 2015

I am currently running Linux Mint Debian Edition (1 not the newly released 2). I am going to jump back to Debian testing shortly, and I'd love to avoid a fresh install. Whether I should upgrade to Stable before Testing, or just point the repos to testing and jump. Will it make any difference? If I hit a snag, I'll do the clean install.

Debian Installation :: Upgrading With A Handmade Kernel?

Aug 11, 2010

I have a hand-built kernel in Lenny. It's much smaller and faster than the stock kernel and doesn't need an initrd, but I am not sure how to upgrade it in a way that will be compatible with the new udev package. The recommended procedure is to upgrade the kernel and udev together and then reboot before doing the rest of the upgrade, but obviously I can't do that.

There seem to be two possible procedures I could follow:

1) Upgrade kernel sources and rebuild and install the kernel, then reboot and upgrade udev. But then the new kernel would be booting with the old udev and I don't know if that would work.

2) Upgrade, rebuild and install the kernel, then upgrade udev without rebooting, ignoring the warning messages. Finally reboot into the new kernel.

Debian Installation :: Upgrading One Particular Package From Jessie To Stretch

Jan 8, 2016

I have installed Package: gnumeric (1.12.18-2) in my Jessie/Mate system. It is very jittery on scrolling, and I was wondering if I should upgrade to the version (1.12.26-1) in stretch(testing), as there seem to have been a large number of bugfixes.

I have tried the following simulation command, but it gives the error message shown:

Code: Select all~# apt-get --simulate -t stretch  install gnumeric
Reading package lists... Done
E: The value 'stretch' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources

The documentation suggests that I may need to create an apt preferences file. I do not have any of the following files mentioned by the apt-get man page:


What I would like to do is upgrade just the specific package jessie/gnumeric(1.12.18-2) to stretch/gnumeric(1.12.26-1). I do not want any other packages to be inadvertently upgraded to stretch. I have seen warnings that one can easily end up with a badly mixed system and I wish to avoid that! I also do not want to disturb the standard apt-get update, which I am running daily via anacron at present.

Debian Installation :: Upgrading Windows On A Computer With Dual Boot

Aug 30, 2014

I recently installed Debian 7 on a dual boot with Windows Vista. Thus, when I boot the computer, I am prompted by a GRUB screen to select Windows Vista loader, Debian, and Debian (recovery mode). I would like to upgrade Windows Vista to Windows 7. Will this cause an issue with GRUB? Will a Windows 7 loader be added to the list or will a Windows 7 loader replace the Windows Vista loader? Will there have to be a setting change within Debian? Within Windows?

Debian Installation :: Segmentation Fault When Upgrading From Wheezy To Jessie

May 11, 2015

A few days ago I bought a Raspberry PI B with Debian Wheezy (7.0 - I think) on it. Before installing a media centre on it I wanted to do some basic configuration/upgrade and decided to upgrade to Debian Jessie. I followed the instructions provided on [URL] .....

Before moving to Jessie I have upgraded the original Wheezy; after the upgrade the version was 7.8. Everything went well till I executed "apt-get dist-upgrade". Errors where generated. As suggested I tried the "apt-get -f install"; but it did not go smoothly either. However, so far, I am accessing the desktop and everything seems fine (although I did not do anything fancy yet). The version recorded is 8.0. Thus, should I worry about the error messages generated?

Please find the log file here: [URL] ......

Note that I put the log file on Google Drive because each time I clicked on "add file" in the "Upload Attachment" tab when editing this message I got:

Internal Server Error:
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Debian :: Upgrading X Stack On Debian Stable?

Jun 6, 2011

I've been setting up a Lenovo Thinkpad T420i and have gotten most of the kinks worked out, except for the fact that the display has some annoying artifacts as you navigate around, I guess due to bad video support. A post [URL].. on the same machine said that upgrading all X packages to sid (unstable) fixed these problems, but those packages aren't available in stable.

I read another post (can't find the link now) that said Debian wasn't planning on backporting all the X packages, only related libraries and modules. And I don't know which ones specifically would fix the issues I'm having.

So I thought I'd ask what my options are. I could update all those to unstable, but that doesn't seem optimal (and in the future I don't want unstable bugs bringing down my whole X session). Is there a way to find out what I need and backport some myself. Or do I just need to wait until the appropriate packages filter down to stable (or at least backports)?

Debian :: Upgrading Debian's Security Key?

Feb 13, 2011

I am currently running Debian Lenny and have decided to stick with it for theIn accordance with a recently-posted advisory, I attempted to upgrade my installed security key from my currently-installed version (Version: 2009.01.31) to the recently released version (debian-archive-keyring_2010.08.28~lenny1_all.deb).The advice on the posted link reads:

"If you are running Debian, it is strongly suggested to use a package manager like aptitude or synaptic to download and install packages, instead of doing so manually via this website".Is there any documentation on how to use aptitude for this task? A simple "upgrade" command achieved nothing. - e.g.:

[root@carrot ~]# apt-get upgrade debian-archive-keyring

Debian :: Upgrading The Squeeze To Wheezy?

Jul 12, 2011

My Squeeze version is extension three and I had it loaded on my Seagate 1 TB SATA drive. Extension three Squeeze is still on the SATA drive. I loaded Wheezy on my 80 GB Western Digital IDE setup up as a master with my Plextor IDE CD/DVD ROM setup as the slave drive.

Squeeze on my version was LXDE and Wheezy on my version is Gnome gdm3. My Squeeze was loaded with Lilo 22.8 and my Wheezy worked with the regular bootloader. I am just wondering if I use Disk Utility to delete the extension three of Squeeze if it will make both versions unusable.

Debian :: Switch To Apt-get After Upgrading To Squeeze?

Apr 29, 2011

I'm running Lenny, and I've always used aptitude. The upgrade instructions on Debian's website say that apt-get is preferred for doing the upgrade to Squeeze, and also says that apt-get now provides equivalent functionality. So is there any reason to continue to use aptitude after upgrading to Squeeze, and if so, will there be any problems caused by having used apt-get for the upgrade? Or will there be problems caused by switching to apt-get after using aptitude before the upgrade?

Debian :: Updating Libc6 W/o Upgrading?

May 17, 2010

I run Etch. Yes, it's oldstable, but Lenny and Squeeze annoy the heck out of me. However, I'm trying to install the latest version (5.1) of Google Earth, but it requires >=glibc-2.4. Etch only offers 2.3.something. The earlier version of GE I have (4.3) does work, but is apparently no longer supported by Google as it fails to connect every time I fire it up. I found Lenny does have the required libc6 version. Can I update the libc6 packages by installing them directly (separately downloaded packages) or do I get the dependency hell that I want to avoid?
