I have installed Fedora 14 on Intel's DH67BL mother board, which has a on board LAN port, Fedora 14 does not detect on-board LAN. Unfortunately, intel does not provide any driver support for linux OS :-(. However, if I install an additional LAN card, Fedora 14 detects it and everything works fine.
I have used a wireless LAN PCI card for 3 years and now I want to switch back to the onboard wired LAN card but I cant get it to recognize and I have enabled it in BIOS also the wireless LAN card has been removed.Should I put it back in and then try to switch?
so, when i first got my laptop it came with vista and the ethernet worked fine, then when I decided to install Karmic about 9 months ago it still worked fine. After a while the update for lucid came out so I upgraded to that and then the ethernet started getting buggy. It would only work about half the time that i wanted it too and the other half of the time it would just stare at me and not move anywhere. So along with a couple other bugs I decided to format my harddrive and downgrade back to karmic and await the 10.10 release. unfortunatly my ethernet woes carried with me and they still would only show up on occasion. then about half way through my time with karmic round 2 it stopped altogether, and with the upgrade back to lucid it hasn't seemed to solve itself.
I ran through ifconfig -a, lspci and sudo ifup -a but they all tell me that the device doesn't exist.
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 use 64-bit Ubuntu Lucid. This machine has an onboard Nvidia sound chip (which can not be disabled in BIOS), I also have an Soundblaster Audigy 2 card, which i'd rather use.
Previously, this was impossible because Ubuntu could only configure the first card. However, with the event of 10.4 and the easy-to-use selector in Sound Preferences I was hopeful that it would work now. But no luck.
I should mention that this machine dual boots to Win XP, and the Audigy works like a charm there, so it must be a Ubuntu problem. The Audigy 2 card is detected by Ubuntu, and is selectable in Sound Preferences, playback is fine with no errors, the source appears in Sound Preferences, but no sound.
These are the steps I have tried, without success:
- Disable the on-board card in Sound Preferences - Cranking all the sliders to max in Alsamixer - Checking that there's no mute in Alsamixer, Sound Preferences, Volume Control - Adding lines to the bottom of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base making the Audigy the default card (0), and the Nvidia secondary (1). The output of
After I tried to make my onboard video card (radeon x1250) work with openGL (I didn't succeed), it went bad. I get this error when I attempt to start VirtualBox: VirtualBox: supR3HardenedMainGetTrustedMain: dlopen("/usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox.so",) failed: libatiuki.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Other software also misbehave.how to "reset" the video drivers?
I'm looking at upgrading my motherboard and graphics card. Ideally, I'd like to have 2 monitors running at once (DVI), and an output to an LCD projector (HDMI). If I can't have all 3 working at once, I'd like the 2 monitors on all the time (off the graphics card), and then switch from the monitors to the HDMI output so that only the projector is getting video.
So, If I get a motherboard with onboard HDMI, would it be possible to run the HDMI out at the same time as the graphics card output?
I installed Edubuntu 9.10 on a Dell Optiplex GX260. This system has onboard INtell 846G series video. I want to install an NVIDIA video card. I popped it in the case, diabled the onboard video. I get the POST, the GRUB, no problem. But once I get past the GRUB, all I get is a blank screen. The HDD does not sound like Ubuntu is loading.
I just built a computer and the onboard nic pluggin is loose and won't register or connect right... so I had to put another nic card in pci to connect to wired network for internet. Problem now is its delaying something fierce... i'm thinking if i can manage to uninstall or disable the onboard nic maybe things would work better... problem is i wouldn't know how to do it... I know hardware is connected via a document somewhere in the file system... if I were to delete the file would that disable the nic or would it just reinstall itself on the next boot?
The ethernet adapter on my Asrock H97M ITx/AC motherboard isn't recognized during install. It's a Qualcomm Atheros AR8171 and none of the available options like alx or e1000e are working.
I originally tried to install openmediavault [URL] .... - which is based on debian - from an USB Stick and only came up tothe point where it tries to recognize the network card. It couldn't and promted me to choose one manually. So I checked the specs of my motherboard (a shiny new Asrock H97M ITx/AC with a Qualcomm Atheros AR8171) and after a short search I narrowed it down to alx or e1000e. Both of which only triggered a short flash of the interface and nothing more. I guess that's linux' way of sticking its tongue out at me.
For the last 2 days I therefore searched high and low and came across many possible solutions that either didn't work or included too much linux lingo that I couldn't understand it.
One solutions was to install a vanilla debian and then somehow install OMV over it, but debian itself couldn't recognize the network card either. So now I have a pretty minimal debian (CD1 install only) running but how to make it recognize and use the onboard network device.
Just out of curiosity, I plugged in an old hard drive with Win7 that hasn't been updated for at least 10 months. It only had a driver for AR8131 and warned me of using that, but it worked totally fine. Debian however doesn't even try to use an old driver but just flashes its interface at me.
Is there a way to make it work or is this board just not supported by debian and I have to resort to some other distro or a windows installation?
I know there are many threads on similar issues but I can't find anything that will work. Not sure if I need drivers or what to do - I feel really stupid as I should be able to get this right but I am at a brick wall. Basically I have a 20inch monitor hooked up to the on-board graphics card and cannot get higher resolution than 900 x 600. It should be at 1280 by 1240. This is a brand new install with the latest Ubuntu 10. Under monitor preferences its says 'unknown' for monitor type and I don't have any driver disk for this screen but never needed one previously.
I'm having trouble getting X to work after switching from onboard intel video to a 5000 series ATI card. Apparently I need to switch to a MESA or fglrx driver. I did a sudo apt-get install fglrx-driver and it installed but still no X. I'm currently using Karmic. I've tried to boot with a live CD which works fine and changed the xorg file manual but that was a mess.
When I start I get a checking battery state ... done and it stays there forever sometimes and sometimes I can login but without x. Typing startx gives me a long list that says check the xorg website. I've been looking around for a way to fix this and haven't been able to get it working.
I'm running hardware already considered legacy and I was made painfully aware that those drivers, for ATI cards, are only available from Jessie repositories; yet, somehow I was able to have my system configured to run not the stock drivers the system used for installation but, allegedly, proprietary drivers.
I did notice an overall improvement on how the system displays everything on the screen but after fumbling around the system trying to install a game I had a message warning that only software acceleration was activated and not full hardware acceleration, which was what I was aiming at.
After going through a lot of guides on the web I was able to:
a) discover the system is running MESA drivers (or so I have understood) b) install headers for my system but somehow along the way I fumbled whatever I was doing and I probably now have a lot of loose ends in the system
Being Debian (and rock solid) the system is still running smoothly but I really want to clean up after myself and correct what I can and improve where is possible.
Got a bit of a problem where xorg can't start kdm. I pulled out a dying AGP card to try and switch to onboard video, and I think the previous configuration is gumming up the works.I've been running this system for quite a while, as you'll be able to tell from the version numbers.Would like to avoid having to transport my Amarok databases to a new server. I make heavy use of the song ratings and whenever I try to transport the database from the old system to a fresh build I have to spend hours relearning sql commands.Any ideas how to either fix the resolutions on the ATI or (preferably) get KDE to start on the onboard graphics?
I am setting up a mythtv/xmbc box on Ubuntu 10.10 (natty does not install on my hardware). I have a Sabrent TV PCIRC tuner card, which seems to work fine with the proper card and tuner settings. My on-board sound is HDA-Intel surround sound, which I have configured as analog duplex.
Currently the sound works fine through my speakers plugged into any jack on the back of the PC (two speakers, one jack). I can watch ripped movies and listen to music. The TV tuner is pumping sound from its external jack -- if I hook it up directly to the speakers it works fine. I can feed the Tuner's sound to the line-in on my motherboard, but nothing comes out. In the sound manager, i have the input device selected and the input level shows that the sound is coming in through the connector, and I can test the speakers and they work fine, but they don't seem to be communicating that the sound coming in needs to be pumped out through the speakers.
The existing sound card that I have, has a connector for this. It is an "HD audio", or an AC 97 connector. There two rows of five pins, with one pin blocked up, so that the connector is inserted in the correct manner. The cord is hard wired to the case.
Here are the requirements: - gets instantly recognized by Linux (Redhat 5) 64 bit, and plays sound with the standard Linux drivers. I believe I have all of the drivers installed, because a few cards do play with them automatically.
- no installation of special Linux drivers required.
- the other big requirment is that the card have output to an HD Audio, or AC 97 connector, and will play music through the headphone jack.
(Believe it or not, I have one card that works fine out the back, but won't work through the HD Audio. But it works fine in Windows)
- will also work with Windows 64 bit.
Any good sound card recommendations that will meet these requirements?
This is my first attempt switching to Ubuntu from Windows, and I am having some trouble getting the on-board ethernet to work in Ubuntu 9.1. I have a MSI KM2M Combo-L VIA KM266 and VT8235 Chipset which uses the Rhine II chipset. I am trying to use the onboard ethernet, however it does not connect to the network after installing Ubuntu, although the driver appears to have been automatically installed. I also tried this with several other network cards (Intel, Dlink, Netgear) with various chipsets, but none seem to work.
Our network Netgear switch/router has DCHP enabled, and all of the Windows computers connect just fine. This is true even when we plug another computer into the ethernet cable serving the Ubuntu computer. When I manually configure the IP address, it shows the network connection as connected, but it is unable to ping and/or connect to the internet (except for localhost and the assigned IP address). I used 192.168.11 as the IP, 255.255.255.0 as the netmask, and 192.168.1.1 as the gateway. Below are several commands, that I've run to provide some additional information (using auto eth1).
