The 640 x 480 video display on my FC12 guest is driving me nuts! The VBox Guest Additions are installed. How do I get FC12 to recognize the VBox video driver?
Auto resize works great on my Windows guests. On FC12, I just get a lot of extra white space.
FC12's installer does not detect a video card. You have to use the stand display option (second one down) to get FC12 to go into a full graphical installer. If you use the regular install, hoping to do a graphical install, FC 12 only install the bare basics. No video support. You get what looks like a rescue cd. No Gnone, no X etc.
I do believe that FC12 has no idea that the VBox's fake video adapter even exists.
I recently upgraded from fc8. I am running two nvidia NVS 285 cards with four monitors and using nvidia driver 190.53-pkg1. I have one card up and running and can edit the config file and make to other two work I just can't get all four to work together.
Recently I got an hp pavilion g4-1016tx laptop, I installed Fedora 15on it, I chose the "install with basic video driver" option, first it workedwell, but yesterday I could only log in with text mode.There are two videocards on my laptop: AMD Radeon HD 6470M Intel GMA HDI tried to install the ATI driver on my laptop, and I still failed to makeit work properly.My error messages are as follows:
# aticonfig --initial aticonfig: No supported adapters detected # fglrxinfo
Having just updated various files including the kernel using Package Manager I no longer seem to have the correct version of the Nvidia graphics driver. On previous updates this has been done automatically by the "kmod Nvidia" Metapackage. My last kernel was 18.104.22.168-163 fc12.i686.PAE and the Nvidia driver for that did get downloaded correctly. Looking on Yumex I cannot see a driver for this latest kernel listed.
I have FedoraCore 12 x86 DVD already installed since the last weekend, no Internet connection available yet for such PC for lack of time to work in such PC. Since two days ago my video resolution has a weird behavior (I only did one configuration change about pass 800x600 to 1024x768) and since there I never did other change video resolution, and with the new configuration I have been using Linux without problems. Now two days ago When I start up the PC and arrive to the login screen I can see clearly that the resolution for my all graphical interface can be 800x600.
After to enter to my account I see the follow behavior, that consist in load the graphical environment and changing to 1024x768 resolution. See my Photo01.png, after that the pointer of my mouse (black row) never is show, I must do something like Photo02.png to see the black row. My only solution by the moment is arrive to the configuration resolution (see Photo03.png) and only do click in Apply button to refresh all the environment and see the desired black row (pointer), see Photo04.png, but I must do this each time when I start up the PC.
I just install FC12 after all settings are done I install nvidia driver for PAE kernel whit the command # sudo yum install kmod-nvidia-PAE after reboot the system is not able to boot again.What I can do to uninstall the driver?
The relevant details of my setup are: Samsung R522 laptop Realtek RTL8192E wireless network controller (PCI) Fedora 12, kernel 22.214.171.124-70.fc12.i686 (automatically updated using software update)
My problem is that my wireless card has never worked - basically there aren't any widely available linux drivers, and there are many threads on getting the RTL8192E to work on many different forums, e.g. here, but none specifically for Fedora, so I think that this thread could potentially guide many more users. FYI, my hardwired network connection works perfectly.
Fantastically however, by emailing Realtek support, they'll send you their Linux driver, which most people have claimed works perfectly (although why they haven't just put it on their website is beyond me). SO, I've got a Linux driver for my wireless card. When Realtek emailed me to send me the driver, they said to just 'cd' into the driver directory, then do
su make clean make make install reboot ./wlan0up or ./wlan1up
OK, so I tried to do this and get the following error: make: *** /lib/modules/126.96.36.199-70.fc12.i686/build: No such file or directory. Stop. make: *** [all] Error 2
I don't know enough about linux to understand this error. I really don't want to have to recompile my kernel, and I hope there is some way to install this driver with not too much hassle. How to overcome this error, and install my wireless driver so I can get wireless network access on my Fedora 12 operating system. I've found Fedora 12 really easy to use so far, but this is proving quite hard!
This is the output of 'ls -lh' in the folder which seems to be causing the error, namely /lib/modules/188.8.131.52-70.fc12.i686/ total 3.1M lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 46 2010-03-16 22:53 build -> ../../../usr/src/kernels/184.108.40.206-70.fc12.i686 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K 2010-03-03 05:28 extra drwxr-xr-x 11 root root 4.0K 2010-03-16 22:53 kernel -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 498K 2010-03-16 22:53 modules.alias .....
I just switched from FC10 to FC12, and much to my dismay, the touchscreen no longer works. I wasn't able to find a solution on the web, hopefully some gentle soul will answer my problem. The hardware is recognised correctly, because
Code: hexdump /dev/hidraw0
gives an output when I over the stylus over the screen.
Note: I used hexdump because I couldn't find the wacdump utility anymore. Has it disappeared?
I played with HAL rules so that the appropriate wacom driver is loaded for the tablet. I modified /etc/hal/fdi/policy/10-synaptics.fdi, taken from /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/10-synaptics.fdi, as follow (to avoid trying to load Synaptics driver for the touchpad feature of the tablet):
I have downloaded vbox from its site and installed it. I created a vm but when I try to start it, I get error: Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908) The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing: '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' as root. Users of Ubuntu, Fedora or Mandriva should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary.
And when I try 'sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup', I get: Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules done Uninstalling old VirtualBox DKMS kernel modules done Trying to register the VirtualBox kernel modules using DKMS failed (Failed, trying without DKMS) Recompiling VirtualBox kernel modules failed (Look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find out what went wrong)
And this is /var/log/vbox-install.log: Makefile:159: *** Error: unable to find the sources of your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run Make again. Stop.
I am running OpenSuse 11.2 64 - I have vmware Player and Vbox loaded and working fine - I have XP running in each VM - I have a Creative Live cam and was accessing it in each of the VM's, because I can't access it in Suse. This worked very well until recently. I received updates for Suse, one of which was a kernel update - I installed and rebooted. All of a sudden my time to boot took for ever - however - once up and running every thing seemed fine. After a few boots the system started booting normally and the video from my live cam in both VM's is garbled and and essentially not working right.
Video seems to work correctly in all other areas - I removed the creative software and reinstalled in each of my VM's No change. One last thing - I recently (a week or so before my problems) installed an Nvidia video card. I previously used on board video (also Nvidia) I had no problems either in the VM's or Suse until the kernel update. I have removed Vbox and reloaded and set it up (/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup) problem still there. My OS is:Linux 220.127.116.11-0.2-desktop x86_64 New Video is: G96[GeForce 9500 GT] Driver - nvidia
I have programs that work in FC10 and FC12, but when I run them on FC11, i get behaviour that is very similar to a deadlock. They don't crash or anything. It just seems that all program output stops at one point and never resumes. I am wondering if FC11 has any known threading issues that one may need to know about before trying to use it to run their software from FC10 or FC12. Maybe something in the way that threading is handled differently from FC10 or FC12 that is not necessarily a problem, but just needs to be kept in mind when writing code for FC11.
I am a Ubuntu and LINUX newbie. Install goes easy but I can not get 3D accelerated graphics to work. So I am stuck with poor and slow graphics. I tried and tried with the ATI card and went back to make onboard the primary. Neither seems to allow for visual effects upgrade nor 3d graphics in games.
I have installed knoppix 6.0.1 persistent to a usb flash drive. I am currently testing it on my laptop and have successfully installed the graphics driver for nVidia Geforce 7150m driver 180.51 All looks great until i restart and it doesnt work again. when i go to reinstall it, it says its already there, but when i open the nvidia-settings, it doesnt look the same as before. If i reinstall it, it works again, until i restart of course.In case this is important, here is how i installed the driver in root terminal: sudo apt-get install gcc make init 3 cd /home/knoppix/Desktop sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.51-pkg1.run (A series of questions come up asking to compile a kernel, etc.) (install runs) init 5
I am guessing that the new kernel needed for the driver that is installed is not being booted up on when knoppix restarts. I am just unsure as how I can make this kernel accessible at start up or how to start up this kernel again without reinstalling the driver
my problem is on installing nvidia driver on fc12 32bit but, first of all, as i understood the pae kernel requires more than 4gb of ram,i have a 2.2 ghz cpu with 2 gb ram,but when i run command:uname -r it answers: 18.104.22.168-127.PAE [i have fc12 32 bit] when we try to download linux we have a 32bit edition or 64bit edition,do we have an edition which is only for pae? or when we install for example the 32bit edition on a computer with more than 4gb of ram then the kernel automatically will change to be a pae kernel??
While installing XBMC, which was working with my standard Ubuntu install, I accidentally installed NVidia hardware acceleration (sudo apt-get install libvdpau1 nvidia-185-libvdpau) on a notebook with ATI video.
Now XBMC does not work and says it requires OpenGL. apt-get remove does not work for that package because it's transitional. how I can get my stuff working like it was?
I have a tricky problem which I could soIve with a c program. I wrote one and found I didnt have gcc so I tried to install it. I was told I needed to install packages. I acknowledged and an error was generated gcc-4.4.2-7.fc12.i686 requires libgomp = 4.4.2-7.fc12 I try to install libgomp and go round again.
i did yum -y install akmod-nvidia and then type xconfig-nvidia on the terminal,and after logging off i confront with a blank screen,so i remove akomd-nvidia [yum remove akomd-nvidia] and also yum erase xorg-x11-drv-nouveau [yum erase xorg-x11-drv-nouveau]but still no gui,i think i should install:
yum install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.x86_64 [but i didn't] so how can i have my gui back?
I am using Fedora 13 (64-bit). My video card is ATI Radeon HD 4650. I am having problems with the standard Linux driver and somebody has suggested that I should install an ATI-specific video driver. I am told that I should start the PC in failsafe mode, and then tell it to install the "restricted" ATI driver.
