Is it possible to do this? I'm just thinking maybe I can run KDE without using the GPU so that I can use the GPU for computation (CUDA). The system I'm thinking of using is a laptop with Nvidia GTX260M video card. I've seen people talk about frame buffer, but I don't quite understand it because it seems that some people are talking about using frame buffer even when they have a video card on their system.
I'm trying to get 9.10 to work nicely on a Thinkpad Edge 14".Everything is working fine, except that I have issues with the intel graphics drivers.The monitor's native resolution is 1366x768 and I have Intel HD graphics card on it.I have changed my xorg.conf to use driver = "vesa", but now I get only a resolution of 1024x768.I tried to use xrandr to fix this, by adding a new mode etcetera, but this does not work - I believe because the driver is the issue.Also, doing Ctrl+Alt+F[1-6] gives me a blank screen rather than a console.
How do I find out the details about my graphics chip? Intel Corporation Arrandale Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 12)Maybe I should go more bleeding edge for my drivers? How do I do that?
If you have a Radeon graphics chip and upgrade to Jessie, install firmware-linux-nonfree, before rebooting.
My dist-upgrade to Jessie seemed flawless until I rebooted and couldn't get into X.
Seems Jessie boots into Gnome by default, but Gnome now requires 3-D acceleration. For my Radeon graphics chip (ATI Radeon 3100), this requires firmware-linux-nonfree, which I didn't need before and was not installed as part of the upgrade.
A boot message alerted me to this need.
I was able to get X going with xinit. I used FVWM; for XFCE I believe the command is:
xinit /usr/bin/xfce4-session -- :1
and from there I installed the package firmware-linux-nonfree.
I'm having no end of problems trying to get 10.04 onto my older Toshiba Satellite A50 laptop that I use as a spare laptop round the house. The laptop previously dual booted with XP and Xubuntu fine. I wanted to give Lubuntu a go to see if it's performance was better on this older hardware. When installing I got the black screen of death, and also got the same problem with the Xubuntu CD. Research pointed me in the way of this article: [URL] I was able to boot the Lubuntu Live CD using the instructions outlined in method A.
Once installed however I rebooted and Grub seemed to be knackered. Just sent me to a recovery console of which I had no idea what to do. As I could no longer boot into Windows either I reinstalled Xubuntu 9.10 and all was fine. I decided yesterday to give it another bash this time connecting to my wireless from the live cd hoping it would download an update to fix this problem. Nadda, Grub this time did show and I was able to boot into XP, but upon picking my Linux distro I now get an unrecognised device error with a long string of charachters and then it dumps be back into the grub menu, choosing the recovery mode version does the same thing.
11.3 installation appears to be completely unusable for mission critical workit's running/freezing on a Toshiba a300 laptop, intel 965gm gfx, using the drivers that where installed by 11.3whenever the unstoppable screen/monitor saver kicks in, it freezes the machine irrecoverably.same as: 11.3 kde constant lock upsthe unstoppable screen/monitor saver has been a pain in the neck in 11.2 too, is it possible to COMPLETELY REMOVE any code that will make the gfx go on standby? what a pain when you are watching a movie! disabling everything obvious never worked! wtf?
I have got a server which has a motherboard with nvidia mediashield raid built in, with Centos installed it picked up the raid 5 array that i had configured as one drive so the os install was straight forward. When i booted the netinstaller of opensuse 11.3 run though the setup, when getting to the partition setup is was picking up the three hdd as seperate drives and not one, so i got to a certain point and aborted the installation and i re run the installer, the raid status said the array was degarded or something which i knew there was nothing wrong with it as i had set it up only about 2 weeks ago and there was one drive missing aswell. So i removed the array and re configured the array and rebooted and the raid status said healthy again as it was before on centos, then i run the opensuse installer again and it went though the process again but completely stop at "Searching for linux partitions" , cursor was working fine , but nothing else was so i had to press reset.
This was my problem, i know kind of what the problem is, but what i want to know is , i thought opensuse is based on rhel same as centos but how comes centos has the drivers for the raid chip i have in my board and opensuse has not.
I just performed a fresh install of Suse 11.4. It worked great except that the network communication would cut in and out intermittently. I managed to solve the problem posting it here for other users and for future suse releases. I will give the hardware I am running, the symptoms and the fix:
Hardware ======= Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H67MA-UD2H-B3 Ethernet controller: Realtek RTL8111E Default module: r8169 (run lsmod to see loaded modules)
1) First make sure that linux kernel source is installed in your system (yast software management)
2) ensure that gcc is installed (yast software management)
3) Download the latest linux driver for RTL8111E from the realtek website The one that I am running is the 8168 driver version 8.024.00
4) unzip the tarball (creates a directory called "r8168-x.xxx.xx")
5) As root run the autorun.sh from inside the newly created "r8168-x.xxx.xx" directory
I have suse 11.4 installed and I wish to replace the on-board sound chip with an add-on sound card. The following are available at my local shop but they cannot advise whether any will work on Linux Suse 11.4.
Anyone know which of these cards will work on Suse 11.4?
Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio Asus Xonar DS
I have a webcam that don't work with cheese ("no device found"). cheese works with an other camera, so it's not the problem. Googl says the cam should work ([all variants] Alcor Micro Corp. webcam just works - Ubuntu Forums), if the usb numbers mean anything dmesg gives this:
I have installed openSUSE 11.4, and I really like it compared to other linux versions I've tried, but I find it requires a bit more linux know-how.
Being fairly new to linux, it has been quite the effort to learn but I started getting the hang of things via online support and such. Lately I've been having some problems.
I need linux to run a TCAD program, and it requires some openGL functionality and was giving me errors when I tried entering the software related modeling GUI.
Anyhow, I thought it had to do with my graphics drivers, so I decided to update them via ATI proprietary driver. After doing this, the system booted me into the console rather than X.
I tried numerous online guides on how to fix the issues, by running all sorts of boot commands (nomodset), and I read the graphics driver theory, as well as trouble shooting ATI graphics.
In the process, I also installed a radeonhd-xorg11-something through YAST, and that caused a black screen altogether upon boot. I managed to boot into failsafe with x, and from there I removed it via YAST, however this did not resolve issues. I also deleted any xorg.cionf files in hopes that the system will default back to the radeon driver.
As it stands right now, I can only boot into my system via failsafe mode. I'm keeping the unit off for now as it's probably tired from all the hard reboots I had to do . If someone can help me resolve this issue, I can turn it on and enter any commands required, such as finding out the graphics card, the kernel, the driver currently running, etc and I can post it here.
I have no experience with embedded systems hardware and am looking to build a micro-budget underwater robot for exploring the bottom of a lake on the family homestead. I don't have much money to spend on this, but I want to run Debian Linux (I have lots of Linux Admin experience and am right at home with a terminal) or something like that on a small chip which needs to be able to:
Connect to the control computer via ethernet. Get digital or analog data from a GPS module, pressure sensor, etc. Control a few thrusters. Do various other hardware IO functions. Possibly control a robotic arm (this is a long shot, I know). And costs less than about 100 dollars. I have no experience with embedded systems hardware so I really don't know what to buy or where to start, aside from the fact that I heard that this would be a good place for something ARM-related. I am a software developer with time to burn as far as writing the programs to support this goes.
I programming a software using the FTDI chip Ft232 ,and using the D2XX driver(version 1.0.4).I already written some software in the MS Windows and the function FT_GetBitMode works , although in the Linux( Fedora 64 bits and Ubuntu 32 bits) this function returning FT_IO_ERROR (4). I already try differents different USB ports, run as root user or change the USB dev permissions.
I have Intel Atom based development board which has eMMC chip. I can successfully boot Fedora 11 on this board from SATA drive. However Fedora doesn't see this eMMC chip as external storage. The "fdisk -lu" command doesn't show presence of any mmc device.
I installed (for PC i686 Pentium4 1. the PCI-card InnoVISION EIO DM-8401, connect a two hard drives, configured Raid1. established a basic system "Debian 5.0.3", and reboot system. system gave me a message:
Loading, please wait [ 3.004004] 8139cp 0000:02:07.0: This (id 10 es: 8139 rev 10) is not an 8139C + compatible chip [ 3.004004] 8139cp 0000:02:07.0: Try the "8139 too" driver instead
I have the disk driver:
- Components : For Mandrake 9.0 / Kernels Tested : 2.4.19-16mdk - Components : For Redhat Linux 7.3 / Kernels Tested : 2.4.18-3
Recently I installed Ubuntu 10.10 64bit and I have a problem with it.
I have a motherboard with internal audio card as well as I have ATI 2600 card. When I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 sound via motherboard worked perfectly.
But some time later it disappeared. Actually "Output device" that represents audio card disappeared. See screenshot of the Audio Settings dialog.
I made 2 thing - most likely that one of them cause this problem: - I tried to setup Panasonic Plasma TV as a second monitor via HDMI output of my video card (ATI 2600). - I added maven-backports repository (new kernel or new audio driver?)
Have anybody seen this problem? Are any pointers how to fix it? If you need any additional info - let me know I'll be glad to provide it.
I have 10.04 LTS installed onto an SSD and have a spinning disk for crud, and my brother wants to give me his old GA-PH67A-UD3 and 8GB of RAM if I buy an i7 2600 to put in it. The thing is, I'm happy with my GA-965P-DS3 with Q6600, so I don't actually need an upgrade. So, can I get away with replacing the mobo, chip, and RAM and putting the SSD in the equivalent SATA port on the new mobo (/dev/sda), and will it cope? Will the kernel detect a new board and chip and carry on accordingly? I'll have to remount my crud drive to the same mount point it expects, and if my user account as the same UID as the old system, I'm hoping that might cope, too. Of course, I might be suggesting complete evil, and if this was Windows, I wouldn't even dare think about it, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Linux might cope with this kind of change where Windows would fall over in a heap.
Starting over, based on this thread: [URL] And my problem which is the same! I have the same audio chipset and experienced the same issues. I hope there is nothing about that chip. I tried with XFCE4 on Slackware 13.1 and now KDE4 on Debian, I found a workaround on XFCE by installing gstreamer and using it instead of xine as the phonon backend. That workaround apparently doesn't work on KDE.
Something interesting (also in the original thread): Software mixing through alsa DOES work since I can play several files in aplay (command line) or xine (gui standalone) simultaneously. I don't have another soundcard. Should I install pulseaudio anyway? Switching to OSS ?
Im having xeltek eeprom programer but I cannot read the chip data on the buffer file, when I read the chip using programer the datas are being sent to the buffer I can just see the adress line ,hex line and ascii line then I dont know which is the exactly data ,
Looking to build the first computer system from scratch and I have chosen Linux as my system. Learning about Linux is a must as I would like to get away from MS. Also, building the system will better equip me when I pursue a business venture within the next year or two.I presently take course work in accounting for a bachelor degree, but will attain another degree in software engineering, both from Herzing University. My present skill level in programming?
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?
