I am running Fedora 13 with the nvidia blob for OpenGL hw acceleration, everything x86_64. I have spent a couple of days trying to get either Morrowing (TES3) or Oblivion (TES4) working under wine, unfortunately without success.
I have tried several flavors of wine: 64-bit wine from the fedora 13 repo, 32-bit wine from the fedora 13 repos, 32-bit wine 1.3.2 built from source. In all cases, running either of the games I get the same error (using WINEDEBUG=+d3d): "Direct3D requires OpenGL support." Appareantly wine d3d layer can't access to the nvidia OpenGL driver, and therefore d3d is disabled within wine -- making the two games not to start up.
I have tried looking around for a solution, but in all cases I found the root of the problem was missing OpenGL support / missing drivers. This is not my case; I use OpenGL everyday, and hardware acceleration is clearly supported in my configuration (confirmed with `glxinfo | grep direct`).
I think that wine might have problems accessing the 64-bit ogl drivers, but I don't know how to confirm it, and even less how to solve it. Clearly, installing Windows is not an option
I just upgraded from FC8 (32-bit) to FC11 (64-bit). In doing so, I backed up my entire World of Warcraft folder so I could try to avoid having to download and install it all over again. However, I've now reinstalled wine (64-bit now), and the nvidia drivers from the rpmfusion repos (also 64-bit), and when I try to start WoW, it says it cannot load OpenGL. I'm wondering if anyone knows what's up, and if there's a solution that doesn't involve reinstalling WoW.
I installed Rosetta Stone v3.4.5 using wine on Fedora 12. Seems like the program was installed fine. When I launch the program it is asking me to insert the language CD. I have the iso files instead of CDs. I tried mounting them but still Wine/Rosetta Stone is not able to detect the mounted iso. Can someone give me a clue as what should I try?
After finally figuring out how exactly how to compile something from source, I did it with Wine. However, there's a problem, when I'm trying to play a game on Steam (Half-Life) on a TNT2 graphics card (With NVIDIA drivers 71.86 installed as well as all of the packages needed to compile Wine from source), everything either lags or has an error.
One of these errors is that OpenGL32 isn't being initialized after attempting to start the game in that mode. Another error (or I should say problem) is that in Direct3D mode, it just.. crashes lol. Also, in Software mode, it LAGS horribly and I don't think it has to do with the hardware limitations I have on this machine. I did however install the glx and gl drivers AFTER I compiled Wine, do I have to do yet another install?
I try to run Mesa gears example and I get following error: Code: freeglut (./gears): Unable to create direct context rendering for window 'Gears' This may hurt performance. though the application runs successfully, but I guess that in future I will have much problems with productivity.
I run Linux CentOS 5 on WMvare 7. Mesa's version is 6.5 Relevant output of lspci -v gives: Code...
First time this has happened. I installed Fedora first (XP already installed) and then installed Ubuntu 9.10 64. Fedora doesn't show up on boot up menu. I've tried update-grub. Before I would have just edited menu.lst, but now?? I dunno. edit; Here's fdisk with Fedora on sda6
This has been happening with the majority of screens I try to plug into, but the proprietary nvidia driver never detects the correct resolutions -__- the open-source driver works perfectly with a little xrandr magic, but I'd like to have some 3D acceleration going on. I'm using the desktop version of Nvidia ION and ubuntu 10.10, with the current nvidia driver (from the repositories). The native resolution is 1440x900 @60 Hz. Any thoughts on this? Again, the nouveau driver is great but I'd like to have VDPAU and the like working. code...
I just installed gtkpod in order to access my ipod through fedora. The problem I face is that sometimes gtkpod detects the ipod and works fine. But sometimes it doesn't detect it at all. And in spite of clicking lots of times on Load iPod(s) button, it doesn't load the iPod. How can I get this working?
I just installed Fedora 12 from a DVD . The process completed without incident. I then inserted a DVD into my internal drive and nothing happened. I then logged out and logged in again as root, and tried again-same result; nothing! Could it have something to do with the new PolicyKit? I didn't have this problem with Fedora 11.
I have an Asus P5K motherboard with an Intel Core 2 Duo 8400. It has 2 SATA hard disks, a 250 GB Seagate and a 500GB Hitachi.
I've been running Fedora 10 x86_64 for 6 months on this computer without problems.
I'm trying to do a new Fedora 11 install on this computer but the installer (Anaconda?) only detects the Hitachi disk.
I've tried to make a new Fedora 10 install to check if it was a media or disk problem and it detects the two hard disks.
I've tried to install it via a Live CD, and the installer only detects the Hitachi disk. The LiveCD detects the two hard disks, I can access it, partition, format, write, but the installer only detects the Hitachi.
I've tried to change from Enhanced SATA (AHCI) to Compatible in BIOS without success and I've changed SATA cables from one disk to the other, changed the disk order and nothing.
Must I enter some boot parameters for Fedora 11? Has the LiveCD installer some options?
I just installed x64 Fedora, and as the title says, NM fails to detect my WiFi card. It's an Encore ENLWI-N with a RaLink RT2800 chipset. The card does show up when I run lspci, although iwconfig yields nothing.Not sure if this helps, but when Ias running Karmic Koala, Ubuntu detected the card immediately and required no configuration
I am trying to install freeBSD on F14 (with LUKS encryprion). freeBSD doesn't detect hard-drive, probably coz of LUKS? Now what can I do within F14 to format harddrive and remove LUKS to get in a shape that I can install freeBSD or other OS.
I have just installed F14.I installed Wine and iTunesSetup.exe.When I installed iTunes it said it couldn't import or burn cds.It also said that maybe playback could be a problem.None of this is an issue for me as I only want to use it to load my ipod.When I plug in my ipod it doesnt show up in the left hand menu bar as I'm told it should.How do I load my ipod?---------- Post added at 05:53 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:54 PM ----------After installing the 293 updates available to F14 I found that an ipod icon appeared on my desktop.Can I just copy mp3 files to here. There are a few folders, where would I copy them to?It would be good if I could transfer files without Wine. Lately I've been alergic to all things Microsoft.---------- Post added at 06:11 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:53 PM ---------- iTunes wont even start up from the desktop icon
I didn't have any luck finding the solution for not getting opengl working on a SLES11 server with a remote X-Win32 client. As a reference I've used the tool "glxgears" for testing.We have two servers. One (server A) with SLES10 and the other (server B) with SLES11. We use X-Win32 (ver. 9.x) as an X-server on a Microsoft Windows client machine. Both servers are connected to with ssh with X11 forwarding enabled (Xclock works fine on both).Starting glxgears from server A works fine; Three nice gears are displayed.
I've just installed Fedora (F13) for the first time, on a new HDD, to give myself a dual-boot system. So currently I have:
So, at the appropriate stage in the install menu, there is an option for where to install GRUB, and a drop-down to choose which drive is the primary BIOS boot drive.
However, in both cases, no other drive except my new sdc is visible. So, I can install GRUB to MBR of sdc, or to first sector of boot partition - but no option to put it to my primary boot drive MBR on sda.
Likewise, in the GRUB configuration page, if I go to Add another OS, the only option it gives me is my new Fedora install. It doesn't list the Vista OS on sda at all.
The result is that I can boot to either OS by changing the boot drive priority in BIOS.
I guess my question is this: - is this expected behaviour from the installer, meaning that I'll need to configure GRUB manually somehow? (gulp ) or - did I do something wrong in the install process? or - is this some weird bug manifesting itself?
I have little problem with NetworkManager. This problem begin when I upgraded Debian Etch to Lenny.
When I right-clicked nm-applet in Debian Etch, I get this dropdown menu where was button "Edit Connections..." Now in Lenny there is only "Edit Wireless Connections" button. So I can't edit my wired connections anymore.
I know I can just edit /etc/network/interfaces file to set my IP, but I need about 20 different IP:s at work, so that is just stupid do it that way...
I have a new F12 install, and my syslog is filling up with messages about USB. I have 2 USB devices plugged in directly to the mobo (bluetooth keyboard receiver, touchscreen), and it keeps redetecting them and then disabling the port for some reason.
I have a gateway laptop that I have attempted to dual boot, but the computer only sees the Ubuntu OS and the Vista Windows Recovery Partition. (Actually, gnome reports 3 separate Ubuntu OSs... part of the problem?)
When I type fdisk -l, I get the following message code...
In Document Viewer, I can click on the fields and type in them, but after spending about 2 hours writing descriptions of courses, I saved it and... it closed the document I was working on, and loading the document I saved resulted in empty fields that could no longer be edited at all - clicking on them did nothing - it looked like a blank form, except it was also broken.
Is there any way I can actually fill in this form...
I just purchased a Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB Headset. It works fine in Windows but unfortunately the same can't be said for Linux. It doesn't even seem to be detected as when I use the command cat /proc/bus/input/devices I get
I checked Volume control and I have Headphone checked, and in switched Headphone is also checked. Actually... Maybe it is being detected... In the Device dropdown menu in Volume control I see "Logitech USB Headset". I checked that and the volume is turned up, speaker and microphone are selected in preferences... Sound is still coming out of my monitor's speakers though.
Debian Jessie does not detect one of my monitors (I have two) when I use the default drivers (nouveau) for my NVIDIA graphics card. It does work when I install the proprietary drivers, but then, after a couple of reboots, I get many problems (when I log in, it does not manage to load the desktop environment). I've tried this a couple of times unsuccessfully.
How to make the machine recognize the dual screen with the default drivers?
