I have a Dell PowerEdge 840 that has no sound card. I would like to install a completely compatible sound card. I have not been able to find any recommendations for compatible sound cards on these forums, but I have learned that the C-Media chipset is supposed to be well-supported by Linux. There are C-Media sound cards on e-bay for under $10. I was considering a 6ch c-media 5.1 surround sound 3D PCI sound card. I believe the chipset is CM8738. Does anyone know whether this card is supported in F12? Or does anyone care to share any recommendations for sound cards that are known to be compatible with Fedora 12?
My intention is to be able to install a decent, inexpensive, commodity sound card that is known to be compatible with Fedora 12. I would prefer to purchase and install one that I know works rather than guessing and then fiddling with it forever and asking a lot of questions that could have been avoided.
Surprisingly, this information has been very hard for me to find. I understand that there is no Fedora hardware compatibility list, but it seems that a very brief list of hardware that is know to be compatible with the most recent release or two of Fedora could save a lot of time and resources. The purpose of such a brief list wouldn't necessarily be to see if a certain piece of hardware is compatible, but to find a component that is know to be compatible, so as to easily be able to get a completely functional system up and running.
In Fedora 10, I cannot get to the installer because it shows these messed up strips graphics (its not due to my graphic card, my graphic card is supported 7600gt) in non-quiet install it shows logical errors and i/o errors.
I have a Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2 motherboard with integrated graphics that shows up on lspci as an ATI Radeon 2100. I also bought a PCI-Express Nvidia graphics card so I could use the VDPAU feature on Linux (plays H.264 in hardware). The BIOS has three settings about which display to initialize first:
I cannot get anything, not even a splash screen or POST messages, to emerge from the PCI-Express graphics card. (I'm using a DVI connector; the card also has an HDMI output.)I cannot get the kernel lspci to see the graphics card; the only VGA controller it acknowledges is the integrated one.Running dmidecode acknowledges the existence of an x16 PCI Express slot, and it says
Current usage: Unknown
There is an additional BIOS setting called "Internal Graphics Mode" which is normally set to "Auto" which means it is supposed to prefer a PCI Express VGA card. I set it to "Disabled" which now means I'm getting no output at all. I will soon be learning how to do a BIOS reset!
Other information: The PCI-E card is a MSI N210-MD512H GeForce 210. This is a fanless card. Although there are no fans to see turning, the heat sink on the PCI-E card is definitely getting hot, so the card is getting some sort of power.It gets all its power from the PCI-E slot; there is no external power connector.The BIOS is an AMI Award BIOS.how can I make the PCI Express graphics card visible to Ubuntu?
I am running Fedora 13 with a motherboard that doesn't have onboard graphics, so I had to put a PCIE card in to do the install.
However, I am using the box as a file server so I don't need graphics, and would like to be able to use the PCIE card for another computer.
So I took the card out and powered on, waited about 3 minutes and then typed in the login details. I then tried to SSH into it from another computer and couldn't connect, so it must not have booted up properly (I tried a few times to make sure).
I have read about a similar problem that occurs on Fedora 9 when there is no monitor attached - this is apparently solved by adding "nomodeset" to the grub entry, but that didn't work.
There is no X or Gnome/KDE installed and the default runlevel is 3.
PS - also, usually when the power button is pressed there is a pause before it powers off, but without a graphics card the power button turns it off immediately no matter how long you have waited.
I just got a graphics card ATI installed on my fedora 10. I would like to see the functioning of the same with some kind of game. Any suggestions for game under fedora 10 to see the graphics application.
I have the latest everything (kernel, nvidia drivers and kde) and there seems to be a problem in that if I click on the K menu, or grouped windows in the taskbar, or anything in the notification area which causes the computer to freeze for 7 - 12 seconds. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this?
It's an AMD 64 dual core with a GeForce 210 pci-x graphics card. The issue happens either with out without compositing.
I've installed f11 on my machine and am wondering how to control the fan speed for my graphics card, its a asus EAH4850 (single slot, fan starts automatically at around 10% speed).
The card goes at around 85 degrees Celsius with stardard speed with no 3d, and 110+ when running any 3d application, wich then causes it to not respond. i have to set it to around 60% speed for safe temperature.
I'm used to windows, there i could either use the asus smart doctor or the catalyst control center to adjust fan speed, i'm looking for a linux alternative.
I'm going to be building a new desktop computer and I'm trying to decide between either an ati or nvidia graphics card. I've previously only used integrated intel graphics in my laptop and I've never had any problems. However, from looking at the forums it looks like neither ati nor nvidia will be quite as smooth. What's the current consensus for ease of use?
The specs on my Pavilion DV6 says it has a 5650 Radeon HD card.lspci shows:01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M880G [Mobility Radeon HD 4200]02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Redwood [Radeon HD 5600 Series] (rev ff)TWO cards? Currently the first one shows up in the system information but, knowing it has a 5600 series card,I'm guessing the laptop has a cheaper model with a 4200 integrated card where mine has a 5650 added...thus both showing up. I need to figure out a way to ignore the 4200 card and use the second.
Both drivers are contained in the same package from Radeon. The system information shows VESA:M880G as the driver. How do I go about blacklisting the M880G driver so the other one ('Redwood', guessing from the content of the lspci output) can be loaded?Or am I completely wrong about what needs to happen here? I do not see anywhere in the bios where I can deactivate the 4200 chip. After checking the specs on the laptop (and it's other derivates), i twould seem that there is no 4200 series card on any of the cheaper machines....no sure hwat gives. I've downloaded some stuff on X and see if I can create a xorg.conf that will load the appropriate driver.
I'm likely going to remove the akmod proprietary drivers and go with the open source 'radeon' for a while to see how it goes.[/edit]EDIT 2:The thing thats going on here is 'hybrid graphics' which I had heard of in desktop but didn't realize that it was in laptops.There is currently work going on to get the configuration working properly. The 4200 card is supposed to run when on batteries and switching automatically to the 5650 when the power is plugged in.
I want to install a new graphics card, Nvidia Geforce 9400 GT, into my system running Fedora 12, x86_64.
* Should I install the hardware into the system first? * Or should I download the proper drivers and install them first, before hardware? * Do I need to disable or remove drivers for my integrated graphics card (Integrated NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE graphics) before I do anything?
I am thinking about buying a new computer. It has ATI Radeon HD 3000 Graphics. Does Fedora 14 support ATI Radeon HD 3000 Graphicst? Will I have to install a driver and if so where would I download the driver?
I'm a Fedora 12 user on an HP Pavilion dv4 laptop. I'm currently using kernel 18.104.22.168-99.fc12.x86_64, graphics driver xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.9.1-1.fc12.x86_64, and mesa 7.7-4. My graphics card is an Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07).
I've been having some problems getting my 3D acceleration to work. Although it worked correctly in Fedora 11, I have not been able to get it to work yet in Fedora 12.
The output of glxinfo shows:
Running glxinfo with LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose shows:
I found a similar message here: [url]
However, I'm not sure if this is the same problem I have. What does the drm_intel_bo_busy message mean?
I just bought a new graphics card and installed it. it works perfectly although my sound worked perfectly this morning and I think the graphics card is overriding my built in sound card. I need help fixing the sound. The graphics card I bought is an ATI Radeon Cedar HD 5450 The sound I want to use is HDA VIA VT82xx when I run alsamixer I get Card:
very much like everybody i am also waiting for centos 5.3, because 5.2 could not sit on my notebook due to obvious driver issues. would anybody tell if centos 5.3 support my x3100 graphics card and bcm 4311 wlan card?
Trying to make sense of this Linux stuff, by trying to install Fedora 14. First impressions are it?s a parallel universe populated by those who hark back to the era of Windows 3.1 / DOS, and earlier, where command line instructions and messing around with .ini files was all the rage. Which might all be a great little hobby to go back to, being more 'at one, and intimate' with my machine and learning a new skill to take some pride in, but all it means so far is my patience is being really tested by needing to learn it all from scratch!
The installation guides seem to suggest that if your graphics card is not good enough then the installation will default to the text based one. Which is what happened in my case. I can get to the login prompt after the installation, but that's the point where it gets really frustrating in having my machine think it?s a mid 1980s Commodore 64 or something!! Never mind PEEK and POKE, I just want to THUMP or KICK it.
I read somewhere I should start X Start to start the GUI. Nope, x start or xstart doesn't do anything. I then read that only works if I had installed X Windows. Can't find where or how I install X Windows though! I then read, as I say, things default to purely text if your graphics card is not good enough, but then I can't find anything about what the minimum spec is. Seems odd that a card that can cope with Windows can't work with a system as basic as linux/fedora with its frustrating command line-intensive way of working.
- what the minimum graphics card spec is to enable GUI? - how to install this X Windows thing?
I installed a new copy of F13 this morning on my fairly new laptop.32 Bit Intel, 3GB Memory 120GB HDD. The problem I've got is that my Monitor/Graphics card is not getting detected and as a result I'm getting a horrible Resolution/Refresh rate. When I run
lspci | grep VGA
I get this 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 771/671 PCIE VGA Display Adapter (rev 10). how I can get my monitor/graphics recognized to work in the Full Resolution.
how to enable the Gnome Shell with an AMD 6950 graphics card and the default Fedora 15 drivers? I may try the AMD Catalyst proprietary drivers but from history those usually lag behind the Fedora versions. I also read some people had issues with the current AMD Catalyst drivers in the Catalyst guide thread.
Also, the AMD 6950 graphics card fan is at full speed all the time in Fedora 15. I do believe you can with the Catalyst drivers using aticonfig but was wondering about the default Fedora 15 drivers?
I'm having problems with my video card (Radeon X1600) ever since I upgraded to 10.04 (video is fine until I stress the video card (eg using 3D acceleration)). This appears to be a problem with the drivers for the video card. I've had problems in the past with video cards (many because I didn't check that the card I'm buying is "Linux friendly" or not. Now I'm doing my do diligence and asking the community what video card I should buy to replace my current one? I have the following Motherboard: [URL]
I installed a video card called ASUS EAH 4550 and installed the ATI drivers necessary for this video card. The problem is this, I current have two users using Debian. I have done all the necessary configurations via x.org and User 1 has no problem accessing GNome with Compiz as the window manager. However, if user 2 was to log in the same way as user 1 (through startx) the screen does not boot up Gnome but instead the screen powers off into standby mode. I've also tried creating a third user and the same thing occurs.
Currently I am typing through User 1 with no problem but additional users for some reason can not get a desktop screen.
