Debian Installation :: Compile A NIC Card Driver On A New System?

Jul 23, 2011

I have a new machine with an Intel 82579lm network card (needs an e1000e driver, I believe). I got Debian installed, but it doesn't have access to the Internet, because it needs a driver for that card. So, I managed to download the card driver on another computer and transfer it to this computer. Problem is that when I run 'make install' for the card driver, it turns out that my Debian install doesn't have 'make'.

I could compile the card source on another computer with Debian. Problem is that computer has a different architecture (old amd 32 bit machine vs. new intel i7 64 bit) than the machine with the problem card. Am guessing that the compiled driver module won't work on a different kind of machine.

Another possibility is to check in synaptic on my old 32-bit machine and use "Generate package download script" to determine where synaptic is getting the 'make' package from and all its dependencies. I also would need to modify the downloads to get the packages for the 64bit machine. *Assuming* that a) the dependencies in Synaptic on the old 32-bit machine will be the same as for a 64bit machine and b) I correctly identify all necessary packages and their proper names for the amd64 architecture, I should be able to move the files to the new machine and compile what I need to compile.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Make/compile The Driver For A Wireless Card

Feb 16, 2011

I've been trying to make/compile the driver for a wireless card. The card is usb, it's titled Micronext MN-WD550M and seems to use the rtl8712 driver.Firstly, though I did this once two years ago I seem to have completely forgotten how to install a driver in ubuntu.

Secondly, I'm not sure I have the right driver anyway since in the notes in the readme it says it is for i386 (I run amd 64). The driver is here [URL] Thirdly, after clicking through various readmes and documentation without feeling any more intelligent, I then tried using ndiswrapper to install a windows driver and ubuntu would crash if the usb wireless card was plugged in. Blarg.I feel like this should be so simple I'm going to make a clean installation of ubuntu 10.10 shortly (for various unrelated reasons) so anything I messed up with ndiswrapper should be back to normal.

Debian :: Can't Compile A Driver From Source (make Cmd Fails)

Nov 14, 2010

I'm trying to compile the D-Link netcard driver from the official source, and when I first ran "make," I got an error that "make" couldn't be found. So I installed "apt-get install make," then make told me that it needed gcc, I installed "apt-get install gcc." Now make says: make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/build: No such file or directory. Stop. make: *** [LINUX] Error 2 and exits.

I suspect that I need to install some package group which will handle the make and make install (rather than manually trying to fix one hole after another)

Debian Configuration :: Change The Driver File And Compile Custom Kernel

May 3, 2011

When I only change a driver file manually, for example /newkernel/linux-source-.6.32/drivers/gpu/drm/i915_drv.h, do I need to run "make config" or similar like "make menuconfig" or can I just skip? I mean these steps:

1.) apt-get install linux-source-2.6.32
2.) mkdir ~/newkernel/
3.) cp /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.32.tar.bz2 ~/newkernel/
4.) cd /newkernel/
5.) tar xjf linux-source-2.6.32.tar.bz2
6.) cd linux-source-2.6.32
7.) cp /boot/config-$(uname -r) ./.config yes "" | make oldconfig
8.) change the driver file /newkernel/linux-source-2.6.32/drivers/gpu/drm/i915_drv.h manually
8.) make-kpkg clean
9.) make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd --revision=custom.001 kernel_image kernel_headers
10.) dpkg -i *.deb

Is this way OK or do I miss something?

Debian Installation :: Install Wheezy On Any System With Either AMD / ATI 68xx Or 69xx Card?

Aug 26, 2011

Has anyone had any luck in trying to install wheezy (latest testing snapshot available) on any system with either a AMD/ATI 68xx or 69xx card?All goes well in the install, but on reboot, all that is seen is a "_" and no text, and it hard locks.I am pretty sure this is a conflict with the video card drivers that get installed by default (and which should be blacklisted), but I have no idea how to fix it.The recovery mode don't work either, it is the same "_" with no text, and it ends up hard locking. There is no chance at getting access to a console at all.

Debian Configuration :: Ethernet Card Missing/Compile Latest Kernel?

Dec 17, 2010

This may sound ridiculous, but after installing Debian 5 (from CD 1) in my laptop, ASUS UL80VT, it fails to detect the Ethernet device. The device is "Atheros AR8131 PCI-E Ethernet Controller". I guess the problem comes with the old kernel of version 5. I was intending to compile the latest kernel anyway. But the problem is is there any heads up i need to download the kernel and trying to compile it? Is there anyone who uses Debian on UL80VT. If there is, does it works okay?In short I want to compile the latest kernel, hoping it will fix the Ethernet device. There are installers available with the latest kernel. But I want to do it on my own.

It does only exist driver-packages for 32 bits: hl1110cupswrapper-3.0.1-1.i386.deb and hl1110lpr-3.0.1-1.i386.deb)

My system is:
Release 7.8 (wheezy) 64-bit

GNOME 3.4.2
AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 245 Processor × 2

-> pwd
/home/joe/Desktop/BrotherHL-1110/hl1110cupswrapper-GPL_src-3.0.1-1

-> ls -R
.:
brcupsconfig Copying filter PPD

[Code] ....

How do I compile and install it on my computer ? ( Or get the printer working ? )

Ubuntu Installation :: Compile RAID Driver - 3Ware 9750?

Jul 28, 2011

I have several servers running 3ware 9750 raid controller cards. The 9750 does not have a driver built into the linux kernel and must be manually added during installation. This hasn't been a problem as I had a driver compiled for the kernel versions I was using.

There isn't a driver available precompiled for 10.04.3. I would like to compile one from the source code I downloaded from the manufacturer, but I am not sure where to start. I've looked for some sort of walkthrough or directions, but I haven't had any luck. I've compiled and installed software from source, but I have a feeling that drivers are probably a bit more complicated, especially since I will need to compile the driver on a system that does not have the same kernel version.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: System Freeze With Radeon Driver + DRI / FireGL V3100 Card?

Jun 29, 2011

After a bit of work I got 3d acceleration (direct rendering) working on my system. Now, whenever I use intensive graphics, (certain screen savers, Google Earth overlay animations) all performs fine for a while (1-2 minutes) and then causes a full system freeze. Only solution at that point is a hard power reboot. I don't know where to look for a solution, since I can not check any diagnostic files when the system is frozen.

System:
Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.00GHz
ATI FireGL V3100 graphics Card
OpenSuse 11.4 with radeon driver.

Debian Configuration :: Install The Driver For Mi Wireless Card?

Apr 22, 2010

I'm trying to install the driver for mi wireless card. The instructions say that to build the tar.gz file, I have to:

# mkdir hybrid_wl
# cd hybrid_wl
# tar <path>/hybrid-portsrc.tarhybrid-portsrc-x86_64.tar.gz

The third step i don't understand. I want the folder of the driver to be located in a folder inside home called "Programas" so what I did was to open the terminal, went su, and then did cd Programas. Then I followed instructions 1 and 2, but I don't know what to put where it says <path>.

Debian Hardware :: Xorg Driver For AMD Need ATI 9834 Video Card?

Jul 24, 2014

I just purchased an Acer Aspire V5-123 notebook with AMD processor and graphic and installed Debian 7.6 (stable) on it. first of all, I had to install a newer (3.14.0.bpo.1-amd64) kernel image to get the ethernet card working. Then, I got problem with Xorg not starting.

Here is the error lines from /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

Code: Select all(EE) VESA(0): V_BIOS address 0x0 out of range
...
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

and this is the output by issuing lspci:

Code: Select alllspci -nn | grep VGA:
00:01.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Device [1002:9834]

I installed the libgl1-mesa-dri, xserver-xorg-video-ati, and firmware-linux-nonfree packages, as suggested by AtiHowTo from Debian Wiki, but the problem still persists and the last one (firmware-linux-nonfree) actually caused the notebook to freeze on boot. so, I removed it.

Debian Configuration :: Installing Nvidia Graphics Card - Driver Error

Apr 28, 2010

I revived my old desktop (failed psu), and installed debian squeeze using netinst. It has a nvidia geForce 7600GT card. The driver in squeeze does not work very well, so I downloaded nvidia driver-installer. When I run it, it comes back with an error saying the kernel (I assume the nvidia graphics kernel) is compiled with gcc4.3, but the system is using gcc4.4. Using synaptic manager, I installed gcc3.3, but same error.

Next I tried to uninstall gcc4.4 and it gave a warning the system might not be usable. I did not understand it, but I went ahead and uninstalled gcc4.4 and guess what, the system is not usable, and I have to re-install squeeze. Not a big loss, since I do not have much in it. How to install this nvidia driver, specifically, how do I get switch to gcc4.3 from gcc4.3? Also, the squeeze install gave me 2.6.33-trunk-amd64, and 2.6.33-3-amd64. How do I get rid of ...trunk-amd64? Do I just delete it from grub?

Debian Hardware :: No Driver For Onboard Network Card - Asrock H97M ITx / AC

Sep 28, 2014

The ethernet adapter on my Asrock H97M ITx/AC motherboard isn't recognized during install. It's a Qualcomm Atheros AR8171 and none of the available options like alx or e1000e are working.

I originally tried to install openmediavault [URL] .... - which is based on debian - from an USB Stick and only came up tothe point where it tries to recognize the network card. It couldn't and promted me to choose one manually. So I checked the specs of my motherboard (a shiny new Asrock H97M ITx/AC with a Qualcomm Atheros AR8171) and after a short search I narrowed it down to alx or e1000e. Both of which only triggered a short flash of the interface and nothing more. I guess that's linux' way of sticking its tongue out at me.

For the last 2 days I therefore searched high and low and came across many possible solutions that either didn't work or included too much linux lingo that I couldn't understand it.

One solutions was to install a vanilla debian and then somehow install OMV over it, but debian itself couldn't recognize the network card either. So now I have a pretty minimal debian (CD1 install only) running but how to make it recognize and use the onboard network device.

Just out of curiosity, I plugged in an old hard drive with Win7 that hasn't been updated for at least 10 months. It only had a driver for AR8131 and warned me of using that, but it worked totally fine. Debian however doesn't even try to use an old driver but just flashes its interface at me.

Is there a way to make it work or is this board just not supported by debian and I have to resort to some other distro or a windows installation?

Debian Hardware :: Installing Driver For Broadcom Wireless Card Doesn't Work

Aug 29, 2010

I'm very new to Debian (and Linux in general), and am currently taking a Linux course at college... I'm trying to get Debian running on my MacBook Pro (late 2009 model) and it's been complicated but I've got the operating system installed on it... I'm just having a few problems, the biggest right now of which is my wireless card, which doesn't work. So, I found instructions on the Debian Wiki for getting the driver for it, but it's not compiled already and I have little knowledge of manually installing stuff through Linux...

Debian Hardware :: Wireless Card (rtl8192CE Driver) Causing Mini-freezes

Mar 28, 2011

Just did an install and am loving Debian. I am having troubles with my card causing mini-freezes. I type and the input sometimes(every 30 seconds) stops and then catches up. This is really annoying. I figure it is the wireless driver because when I ran top -d 0.1 Ieee80211/1 or Ieee80211/0 was the main verdict during every stall. I have not had this problem with other distros, but came to Debian for stability. Any ideas on how to fix it?
