Debian :: Unable To Set Up Wireless On My Laptop / Sort It?

Jun 4, 2011

I've just installed Squeeze on my laptop (Toshiba Satellite C660D - adapter is a Realtek 8188CE) and was following the instructions on debian.org to set up WiFi. I've changed the source list, done the firmware update and the modprobe, but when I get to step 5 where it says to verify that I have a wireless interface, the output from iwconfig just lists lo, eth0 and pan0, all with "no wireless extensions". Does anyone have any ideas what I should do now?

Aug 5, 2010

I'm at wits end...10.04 won't connect to a wireless network on my laptop, and that sort of makes it useless. What is the easiest way to revert back to 9.10? I have a dual-boot system with XP and I'd rather not have to start from scratch.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Unable To Enable Wireless On Laptop Even Though It's Not Grayed Out

Mar 30, 2011

I am using OpenSuse 11.4(32 bit) on my Lenovo B460 laptop, and as the title points, am unable to use wireless on it. The 'enable wireless' option from icon menu is not greyed out, however clicking it does nothing, it remains disabled.

lspci -vv shows:

"04:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)
Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation Device 0510
Control: I/O- Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR+ FastB2B- DisINTx-

[code]....

so it seems that opensuse knows my hardware but networkmanager doesn't! I have all broadcom packages installed as well as kernel-firmware installed.

Networking :: Unable To Configure Wireless Network On Dell Laptop And Oracle System / Fix It?

May 26, 2010

I am a first time Linux user - though I've Unix and Windows experience. So though I can follow your most tech instructions, I'll need some hand-holding.

Need help getting my wireless network to work on my newly installed Oracle Linux on Dell laptop.

Not sure what wireless card is installed, or it's mac address (though I can boot into windows and get that info, I don't want to - it'll be kind of a let down if I can't fix it all thru Linux).

Install has detected a Broadcom wired card, but not the wireless. Funny thing is that it detected the Bluetooth.

Debian Installation :: Unable To Install In HP DV7 Laptop (ACPI Error)

Jan 30, 2011

I have tried both DVD and CD (both are MD5-checked) of both Lenny 5.0.8 and Squeeze RC on my HP DV7-3074CA. (a.k.a 3085DX)When I choose a graphic install, it just hangs after loading the initial files.When I choose the normal install, It gives the following error:

[1.383207] ACPI: EC: Input buffer is not empty, aborting transaction.

Is there a boot command I can input to override this? I tried removing the battery slot, but the only difference is that that message does not appear, but the setup hangs anyway.

UPDATING:Tried "pci=noacpi" but that did lead to a kernel panic.[1.547564] Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

Fedora :: F12 Laptop Won't Boot / Sort It?

Jun 12, 2010

My fedora 12 laptop will no longer boot properly. i get my bios screen, then the fedora intro screen (with the f / infinity symbol on a blue background) after a brief blank screen, then i get a blank screen with a blinking cursor. i can type things but nothing happens when i do, and the computer never exits out of that screen.

is there anything i can do to correct this problem short of a reinstall? i really hate to lose some of the drivers i went to a lot of trouble to find and install as well as some software and some user files.

p.s.: the last thing i did before the problem was to use yum to install quite a few fonts (xorg-...) but it ran after that and i think even went through one reboot with no problems.

Ubuntu Installation :: Laptop With No Removeable Media Of Any Sort?

Jun 7, 2010

I've got an Acer Aspire One. I don't like windows. I have used Ubuntu many times in the past and love it. I want to install it on this thing, but it's as minimalist a computer as it gets. No DVD drive or anything. It weighs about as much as a small bottle of soda. I have no access to USB Drives, External DVD drives, External floppies, external anything. I do have a cat but I don't think that's going to help. In fact, he's trying to step on my keyboard Anyway, I know you can do a "Frugal install" off the hard disk but I have absolutely no idea what it is.

What exactly is a frugal install? Can I partition the hard drive and leave my windows alone (Got some data, programs and porn holding me down) with a frugal install?Is there a difference between a frugal install and a fancy high-tech DVD install when it's finished (E.G Limitations, stability, chances of computer asploding)?

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Get HP Laptop To Boot From Live USB - Sort It?

Apr 25, 2011

Fed up with Windows and ready to become a Linux convert. Here's the only problem:

I've created no less than four separate Live USB distros - all using different USB sticks -
yet my HP Pavilion dv7 refuses to recognize any of them as "bootable devices."

1) Have formatted USB sticks in FAT16 & FAT32 - neither made a difference.

2) Have created bootable USB sticks using Ubuntu Minimal Live install; Ubuntu full Live install; PuppyLinux Live install; even a simple gparted live install - none will boot.

3) Have checked & re-checked that BIOS is set to boot first from USB drive device.

4) 2 of the 4 USB sticks are new, fresh out of the packaging; and 3 of the 4 USB sticks are each from different manufacturers - so I'm fairly certain it's not a issue of a particular brand being incompatible, nor is it due to the sticks being corrupted somehow.

5) Each of the 4 live distros appears to have downloaded just fine - all necessary files appear to be in order.

6) Have tried using Unetbootin, Ubuntu's own live usb tool, and 1 or 2 others - all have failed to boot my HP laptop.

7) Have even tried removing all non-essential hardware before booting - even booting with no hard drives installed - system still returns the error "no bootable device detected."

This laptop is only 2 years old; I know it should be able to boot from USB. I can boot from a (rather old) SliTaz distro on CD just fine - but I need a persistent USB stick so I can easily add packages as needed, etc...s.

Ubuntu :: CPU Usage Goes Wonkers - Laptop Mostly Unusabl After This / Sort It?

May 21, 2011

This happens at very irregular intervals. A week or two can go by with out this occurring, other times two or three times in one day. When these screenshots were taken, no applications were launched other than Top and Monitor. The laptop is mostly unusable when this is going on.

When I disconnect the wireless, everything quiets down. I can reconnect the wireless, and everything is back to normal. I have had this problem on two different laptops, with different Ubuntu versions.

Ubuntu :: Laptop Shutdown When Playing Video Over HDMI / Sort It?

May 21, 2010

I have a weird problem, i have an LG LCD screen that i connect to my laptop via HDMI through nVidia. I was watching full length movies and everything worked perfectly. So, i got myself a new, slightly bigger LG LCD, and now, when I play a movie, about 20-60 minutes into the movie, my machine just turns off. doesnt even shutdown properly, just turns itself off, as if the power ran out (which it didnt..)

I thought maybe i had too many things installed, or mabe i should wait for a new version.. so i waited till i reinstalled a fresh 10.4 on a new partition, played a movie, and again, the machine just suddenly turned itself off.

i tried looking in the system log viewer, but between shutdown and startup, i see nothing special (besides ALOT of "rt_ioctl_giwscan. 1(1) BSS returned, data->length = 105")..

i tried running 64bit & 32bit and it has the same error.

Ubuntu Installation :: Acer Laptop Hangs After Fresh Install And First Update / Sort It?

Jun 12, 2010

I just installed 10.04 on an Acer 4736 laptop and was prompted for a software update of about 170 MB.

I went through with the update downloads and installation, got an error message of some packages not being found, and clicked on the "close" button on the dialogue to finish with the whole thing.

Now the Update Manager window with the grayed-out package updates didn't go away, and the cursor would always show the "busy" circle thing. I waited for a while, but nothing happened. I tried opening Firefox to check for anything about this on the net, but it wouldn't open.

So I left it alone, and it the screen went black (screensaver, I guess). When I tried to get back to the desktop, I couldn't. Screen wouldn't respond and it stayed black; no password prompt or anything.

Ctrl-Alt-Backspace wouldn't take me back to the login screen either.
