Hardware :: ASUS ATI 5870 Not Loading Correctly?

Mar 17, 2011

I have been using my ATI 5870 for some time now after upgrading from a nVIDIA GTX 260. When I did the upgrade it booted no problem. The fan eventually went out on it so I had it RMA'd which led to me using the GTX 260 again. FINALLY got the 5870 back and now Ubuntu just loads to the terminal screen.

Ubuntu :: X Isn't Loading Correctly

Jan 20, 2010

For 6 months I have used this computer as a ediacenter/seedbox on a decent TV. It crapped out and we got a new one. Hooked it up, had super messed up resolution. Ran some command (really don't remember) that ran you through the setup configuration asking for keyboard layout etc.

Didn't work. Deleted xorg.cong, didn't work. Blank xorg.conf, didn't work. What happens is it shows the Ubuntu name and loading bar, loads, then at 100% it shows 2 of them in purple around the screen. Obviously X isn't loading correctly.

CentOS 5 :: GUI Is Not Loading Correctly - Startx - Gnome

Oct 26, 2009

I tried to kind of beautify my CentOS 5.3. So I kind of break some rules ( like compiling tar balls.. ). To cut it short, I installed avant window navigator ( source, compile, etc ). Before that I also installed compiz ( which made my desktop kind of much more *alive* ). Problem is there are some bugs on AWN, then I think my webcam got affected too ( not showing proper display ). I then decided to uninstall compiz thru YUM. After this, restarted my system, then whooppss my Gnome, won't load properly. the AWN was gone, then the bottom part of my desktop was just black. I only got a top menu, which whatever application I open there's no top bar on it ( where you see the name of the window ). Also every application just shows up on my upper left corner of the screen. So I definitely broke it. So I switched to another session ( Ctrl Alt F2 ) then went into a terminal. I tried to load again another X Session ( Ctrl Alt F8/F9 ), but nothing comes up, am I doing that wrong?

Now in cases like this where the GUI is not loading correctly, what work-arounds are usually made? I did some tweaks by guessing everything will kind of reset by renaming my gnome hidden folders, but no luck. What to do on this situations? Is it possible to kind of switch to pure terminal session, uninstall whole Gnome package there, remove some settings, reinstall Gnome and everything will be ok again? Or is it possible if Gnome is broke like kind of start a KDE session? How's this things relate to XOrg11.conf something? Could anyone just give like some overview like which sits on top of what.

Since I can't fix my problem yesterday I just reformatted laptop and reinstalled 5.3 with Virtualization checked, and I noticed my kernel says "xen". I thought of trying this builtin virtualization software because I had problems with VMWare before also.

CentOS 5 Server :: PHP 5.3 And MySQL - Webpages Not Loading Correctly

Oct 8, 2010

I am running CentOS 5.2 with php5.3 and Mysql. I am running a CRM program called Sugar on the server and I am having a problem where the webpages don't always load correctly. I am not sure if this is something on the program itself or if there is a problem some or other setting on the webserver. I am accessing the server over a local network so I don't think it is connection issues. The server has a static IP.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Stuck At Login Splash / AMD 5870

Oct 5, 2010

I just installed 10.04, 64-bit on a work computer that has an AMD 5870 GPU with the latest drivers from AMD (possibly relevant). I keep getting stuck on login at the Ubuntu logo with the five red dots beneath it. I can SSH into the machine from another machine, and I can hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete, which reboots after flashing some text.

I can also log in by amending Grub to remove the "quiet splash" and by hitting ctrl-X, but I can't get the X server to start from a text prompt. It generally gives me a blank screen after I type "startx," and I have to force-reset the computer. (I've been reading the forum for all the hints about how to fix this issue).

Interestingly, sometimes when I reboot I get a "...disk drives are being checked for errors..." message under the Ubuntu splash logo, and if I let this go to completion, I can log into the GUI without any problem. If I hit ctrl-C during the check, it won't log in.

So, right now I'm logged in to the GUI, but I'm afraid to reboot for fear of the dreaded red dots and no login.

Slackware :: Wicd Won't Install Correctly / Run Correctly (64-bit Slackware 13)?

Mar 31, 2010

When I installed Wicd, and ran it for the first time, I got an error something like: "Could not connect to Wicd's dbus session- check the Wicd log file for more info". However, later when I restarted my computer, Wicd started, but I can't connect to my network, it shows up as <hidden>, I can connect to linksys, so I know that wireless is working on that computer. I know that there's nothing wrong with my wireless router, because I can connect to my network in this computer.

Slackware :: Asus PCE-N13 Can't See Router

Jul 2, 2011

I installed Slackware 13.37 a few days ago. It's not my first time but I have never setup a wireless connection in Linux before. I am pretty sure drivers for my network card, Asus PCE-N13, came ready to go with Slackware. After 2 days of reading guides about how to properly setup my rc.inet1.conf and rc.wireless.conf files I installed wicd today and it can't see my router.

Debian :: Grub Load Error "Grub Loading Stage1.5. Grub Loading, Please Wait... Error 15"

May 23, 2010

When I try and boot my Debian computer I get the messages: Grub Loading stage1.5. Grub loading, please wait... Error 15 Is there any way of recovering from this - or is it simply a fresh install? I was attempting an upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze and despite a few hurdles it looked like it was all happening. Got the new kernel loading, and the new grub. It looked as though grub2 was working so I ran the grub-remove-legacy-support command (something like that) and now my computer won't boot grub or Linux.

I'm assuming the MBR on my harddrive is lost, however I don't know what state the partition is in. I'm guessing that maybe this has been lost as well. I tried a few tools from the Ultimate Boot CD but nothing here was able to re-install my grub or boot from any partition or even mount my file-system. I'm fearing the worst but would like it confirmed before I blow it all away with a new install.

Fedora :: F12 On Asus EEE 1000 SSD Netbook?

Nov 28, 2009

Fedora 12 is nearly turnkey on my Asus EEE 1000 SSD netbook. I just needed a few tweaks to get the wireless and touchpad seutp. All of this info is scattered in various places including right here on the FedoraForum, but I thought if it would help just one more person to have it all in one place, then so be it.

1) I used the Fedora 12 i686 Live iso.

2) I installed it on a 1GB thumbdrive using my desktop Fedora 11 system:

sudo livecd-iso-to-disk Fedora-12-i686-Live.iso /dev/sdg1

3) While booting the EEE, hit the Esc key and select the USB device of the thumbdrive. Make sure a wired ethernet is plugged in. We will restore the wireless later.

4) Pick the defaults, except when it comes to the disk partitioning. I have the pair of SSD drives, one 8GB and the other 32GB. I reduced the swap volume size to 2GB to match the memory in the device rather than using the 4GB default (2x memory) and increased the / volume size to the max. I planned on turning off swapping and only intended to use the swap space for the sleep/hibernate functionality. Otherwise, I let the installation setup the layout. a /boot with 200MB of space, 2gb swap volume, and the rest under LVM covering both SSDs.

5) Finish the installation. Reboot and create your user.

6) Apply any patches that are available using SoftwareUpdate. Reboot if necessary.

7) Now time for setting up the wireless. We need the rt2860 driver. This is available in the rpmfusion.org repro. First we need to set it up. Bring up FF and use this url:

Fedora :: Compiling Drivers For ASUS PCI - G31

Nov 7, 2010

I am trying to compile the drivers for my new wireless adapter card. It has me copy a specific configuration based on my Kernal (2.6 which is supported) to a Makefile, then "make all."I get an error after performing this task stating that the path ending in /build is not a directory. I follow the path to /build and "build" is shown in red letters with a black box around it. Just for fun I attempted MKDIR build, and it stated "file exists" ls-la says it is not a directory. I think this is where it is bombing, from the Makefile:

make -c /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build SUBDIRS=$(shell pwd) modules

Fedora :: Install 64-bit F13 Or F14 On An Asus P5KC?

Dec 10, 2010

Trying to install 64-bit F13 or F14 on an Asus P5KC, 2.4Ghz Q6600, 4GB OCZ RAM is proving futile.Initially Fedora 13 would boot, but after the initial yum update it picked up a delay of about a minute at the'Starting mdmonitor' stage, although it was not mdmonitor causing this, as disabling the service simply moved the delay on to the 'Starting system message bus' stage.I could and was living with this for few days, then more updates were available, so I hoped they'd fix it and applied them. Bad mistake as now Fedora 13 now gets stuck permanently at this point. Even after a fresh re-install and update.Fedora 14 does exactly the same thing, it's fine (bar some graphical glitches when booted) until I run 'yum update', then it dies in the same way.On both installations, attempting to boot the previous kernel doesn't help, so I don't think it is the kernel itself but a change that is made to the system during the update process. I know the machine's hardware is fine, before being formatted it was a file server running CentOS 5.1 with an uptime in excess of 200 days.

Ubuntu :: Asus F5n Wont Reboot 10.04?

Jul 18, 2010

I have ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop ASUS F5N. There was a bug in the past versions of ubuntu - ubuntu freezed while it was rebooting and solution is here. However in 10.04 problem still remains, but now there is Grub 2 and mentioned solution does not work. At least I dont know how to apply those instruction for Grub2.

Old instructions:


First method

1. at grub boot menu press e

2. go to 2nd line (root=...) and and press "e"

3. at the end of the line add "all_generic_ide" and press "enter"

4. press "b" to boot

Second method Note : You may add the above command "all_generic_ide" to /boot/grub/menu.lst on the end of line root= open console and tape:

1.sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
2.go to the line:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.xx-xx-generic root=UUID=xxxxxxx-xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxx ro quiet splash

and the end of line tape this:

Ubuntu :: Asus Netbook: Which OS To Install?

Oct 29, 2010

I'm completely new to Ubuntu and Linux. Previously, my only experience is that I've successfully installed Ubuntu on a computer that I was giving away to a friend of mine. So now I've got a refurb netbook coming in the mail in a day or two. It comes with Windows 7 Starter, which I'm assuming is complete crud.*

So assuming it's a good idea to replace that with Ubuntu, my question is, which one? I see that there is now a pretty prominent download link for something called Ubuntu Netbook. But I also see that there's something called Ubuntu Moblin Remix, and I've seen people on the Web referring to just "Ubuntu Remix."

Which one do I want to install? Are there features in regular Ubuntu that I'll miss because they're not in these alternate netbook versions? Since I'm a complete noob when it comes to Linux, I will want to be learning as much as I can. Hopefully using one of these low calorie versions of Ubuntu would not hamper my learning process?

I suppose I should tell you what I'm using the computer for: What I plan to do with my netbook is mainly cruise the Web and watch videos. My desktop computer is an iMac running OS X 10.5.8 (as well as Windows 7 Ultimate on its Boot Camp partition), and I would like to be able to have the netbook and the iMac be able to network with each other so I can copy movie files onto to the netbook's hard drive as easily as possible. Is this a correct assumption? I've seen it implied that Win 7 Starter uses less system resources than the Home or Professional versions and is therefore better for netbooks. Should I maybe consider just keeping Win 7 on there? To me, the most obvious benefit of ditching Windows is that I won't need to have anti-virus software always running in the background and slowing things down.

Ubuntu Networking :: Getting ASUS USB N-13 Up To Speed?

Dec 26, 2010

I have hesitated posting this because there are a number of threads on the Asus USB N-13.First let me point out that I am using this device.It worked out of the box in Ubuntu 10.10 after several reinstalls using the native Ubuntu driver.However my speed is stuck at 54Mb/s.When tested on a Win7 machine, the connection speed is much closer to 300Mb/s.In wading through the other threads, I am unable to find anyone who has this adaptor running at N speed in Ubuntu 10.10.I have downloaded the latest ASUS driver for LInux but have not installed it as my previous attempts at doing this failed miserably and each time necessitating an OS reinstall.I am an experienced Windows user but a rank newbie when it comes to Ubuntu. The following is the result of iwconfig:chad@linuxbox:~$ iwconfig

Ubuntu Networking :: Setting Up Asus N13 In 11.04?

Aug 27, 2011

I'm not the greatest with linux in general, I mean I know my way around it okay but theres still a ton to learn, and 11.04 is the first version to work on my custom PC without messing up after I update it so I'm left with natty. Anyway I bought my PC with an Asus U8B-N13 Wireless adapter. The disc it came with has the program to install the drivers in Windows, Mac, and Linux, but the Linux drivers need to be compile and I'm yet to have luck doing so. I've tried to somewhat follow an older guide here: [URL].. but I made it as far as extracting the .tgz, then running the make command and got a couple errors. Here is that attempt:

dom@NZXT:~$ cd Desktop
dom@NZXT:~/Desktop$ tar -xvzf DPO_RT3070_LinuxSTA_V2.3.0.2_20100422.tgz

Networking :: ASUS Router Not Co-operating?

Jun 7, 2011

Installed ASUS WL-500gP V2. After a lot of trouble with periodical success getting a HP Deskjet F2420 working and then again not working through this router I thought I had bricked it altogether. Got it back by 30-30-30-method, but now I cannot get through to it, the IP address is not working, somehow. Need to find out if it is recognizing my printer and to see if the connection is protected or open. How the heck can the address all of a sudden not work when the router is working and my Windows (huh...) laptop is connecting OK??? Is there any way of finding out the right address, through the Windows laptop "run" I typed "cmd" and then in the DOS prompt "ipconfig/all" and got a new address =, but that did not do any good, either.
