Mar 6, 2010

I downloaded and installed OpenSUSE 11.2 but only screen I see is console, SUSE won't even open.I assume that is an error of graphics card (ATI Mobility Radeon HD3650) or Processor (Intel Centrino 2)The error says that there is niether internet connection nor a driver for graphics card.I was able to work the command "startx" while I was using Ubuntu 9.10 (Ubuntu was not able to install proper graphics card driver too)

SUSE :: Flashing BIOS On Toshiba Satellite A105 S 4547 Laptop SUSe 11.2

Jan 14, 2010

I bought this laptop several years ago. It had Vista. Just long enough for me to download SUSe, nuke and pave the HD and install Linux. Recently I upgraded from 1 GB to 4 GB of RAM, the maximum that is allowed given the motherboard (based on from what I am able to learn the Intel 945 chipset).

After upgrading to 4 GB, the machine (according to "My Computer") only sees 2.9 GB. I understand that under an earlier version of the BIOS that the machine would not recognize the RAM correctly. Additionally the "My Computer" page lists the display as "Intel 945GM". My problem is that I can find no Linux utility to flash the BIOS on this machine-- Toshiba only provides the BIOS included in an .exe file for either XP or Vista. I am hesitant to use the BIOS for the Intel 945 series motherboards from their site.

OpenSUSE Install :: Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600: Nothing After Boot Screen?

May 21, 2010

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600. Now I can't get the liveCD kernel to boot. I get the first boot menu, but the only thing that works is the Memtest option. If I choose anything else, it will "load kernel" very smoothly to 100%. After that: blank screen with a blinking cursor. In the HCL someone successfully tested this with model with 10.2 and 10.3. I have the 11.2 live CD burned at slow speed. I would expect to see at least some copyright message or anything at all when booting the kernel. I've tried the CD in another computer (desktop, Core2) and it will load everything just fine. I've tried the failsafe and other 'safe' options, no difference. I'm a bit lost here, what could cause it to fail booting at such an early stage ? This laptop has 384MB of RAM and a Trident 16MB graphics card. I'm using it every day, with WinXP so far.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.3 And Toshiba Satellite With I7 - Install Without Setting ACPI Mode To OFF

Jul 18, 2010

i am trying to install the new openSUSE 11.3 version but i can't install it without setting the ACPI mode to OFF. Is the new kernel support this hardware? (Toshiba Satellite A505-s6033) i had this problem already with Ubuntu 10.4 LTS and i had have to recompile the kernel with this patch: Some buggy BIOS may modify DSDT memory when acpi enabled. So we copy DSDT for safe.

I thought the 2.6.34 kernel already have this patch but it seems i was wrong... So if i will install the system with ACPI on OFF mode i will be need to recompile the kernel with this patch to get things working?

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Install 11.3 On Toshiba Satellite Pro

Sep 21, 2010

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro laptop with the following specifications:

Proccesor: Intel Core i3 350M / 2.26 GHz
Hard Disk: 320GB SATA 5400rpm
Architecture: x86_64

The computer has already Windows 7 installed on the C drive whereas there's a D hidden drive with a copy of the recovery image. I'm having trouble to install openSuSE 11.3 as follows: I boot the system with the DVD in its drive. After the welcome screen the process stops using the typical GUI interface and runs a less graphical one. It is at this point where a window pops up with a request:

"Make sure that CD number 1 is in your drive" I press OK but the window keeps popping up. Frustrated I hit Back and a red window comes up with the message: "No repository found." I cannot go any further than this point. It's obvious that the system does not seem to be able to detect the DVD.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Works On Live Cd Not After Install Intel 3945 Toshiba Satellite A105

Wireless worked fine on live cd, but for some reason not after install. I think maybe the driver is not loading, but I am a pretty much still a noob, so my opinion isn't worth much. If it is the driver not loading, I don't know what to do to fix it. Here is my wireless output information.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Install 10.04 64 Bit On Toshiba Satellite

May 9, 2010

I have dell B130 with Ubuntu Karmic on it, and I like it. I recently purchased a new laptop, a Toshiba Satellite A505-S6033. I've been trying for about 24 hours to get Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit on this computer, but to no avail. I've seen some people say that they get error messages. When the cd loads up, it comes to the main page (run ubuntu off disk, install ubuntu, check for errors, etc.) Anyway, when I click to run it off the disk, the scren goes blank. The CD spins, but nothing happens from then on. I've tried a 32 bit version of Ubuntu 10.04, but the same thing happens. Just for experimentation, I tried xPud on it, and xpud works fine.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Toshiba Satellite P200 Overheating?

Jun 10, 2011

i recently installed ubuntu 11.04 on my toshiba satellite p200-1k8 laptop; with ubuntu the fans were always running at full blast and the laptop would overheat and shut down even though i wasn't using the computer for anything intensive, e.g.just browsing videos. i installed opensuse thinking the problem might have been with ubuntu but in suse as well the fans seem to be running full blast right from start up and the laptop getting quite hot. i've now learnt this is a generic problem with toshiba satellite laptops and linux, something to do with acpi and possibly the ati graphics cards? my gpu is an ati mobility radeon 2600 if thats any help. in windows (which i was last using two days ago) the fans and heat from the laptop were nowhere near this noticeable and i didn't experience this overheating problem just browsing the web.

could anyone recommend any fixes to better the heat management of my laptop on linux (apart from cleaning the fan which i've already tried )?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Toshiba Satellite - Can't Play Videos Nor Mp3 / Mp4

Jun 13, 2010

After updating the repositories, a long update took place... and after completed, my sound card was disabled. I had to reboot the system to have it working again, yet... mp3, mp4, avi files cannot be reproduced at all.

I just want to get rid of Win 7... and I find OpenSuse very stable, solid and friendly. I just installed version 11.2 in this old Toshiba Satellite, as a pilot installation prior the final one in a desktop PC.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install Toshiba Satellite E205

Feb 25, 2010

I've been trying to figure this out all day, I just got a new Toshiba Satellite E205, and I can't install ubuntu or any other linux os out there that I have tried so far. I've read a lot of things on the forms about changing out the different options but nothing I've tried worked such as graffic safe mode, deleting the quite and whatever the other command was off the end. The closest I've got was when I tried with Debian in text mode I could at least see what was happening, and according to that it can't find my dvd-rom I checked the dev but I can't find it either. So any help what so ever would be appreciated, I really don't want to be stuck with windows 7!BTW, it comes with the following: intel graphics media accelerator HD ACPI x64 DVDRAM ga10f

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Headaches On Toshiba Satellite Pro L510?

Oct 29, 2010

Today I bought a Toshiba Satellite Pro L510 and after much screwing around I have Ubuntu installed kinda. Installing Ubuntu is generally a breeze and I have three machines running 8.04 pretty much rock solid unless I fiddle with 'em, but; I download and boot from a 10.04 LTS cd and gets to the new purpley splash with a couple of icons down the bottom, then goes into endless full-screen terminal scrolling and the computer heats up. So I tried 8.04. Not much different. I try 10.10; same as 10.04 LTS. So I try the alternate installer rather than desktop but that crashes too. I finally find a website suggesting to run the alternate installer, hit F4 and choose 'failsafe graphics' (which wasn't there for me) and then F6 and select everything but 'Free Software Only'. Hey, worked and I get through the text based installer no problem, restart and I'm looking at a grub2 menu and can select Windows 7 or Ubuntu. Cool.

So I select Ubuntu but goes to a text based, command line Ubuntu. Hasn't loaded a desktop. I try to 'sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop' from the CD but after much scrolling tells me not there. It is telling me I have umpteen updates I should get and asking me to insert the CD, which is fine as the machine is not online, but then can't find what it's looking for.

So I've gotten this far. My router is not set as a DHCP server; all machines have static IPs which is why this new one is not online. Would the simple answer be to plug it directly into the internet gateway router and do the updates from there, ubuntu-desktop included?

SUSE / Novell :: OpenSUSE 11.2 Won't Install Fully?

Mar 15, 2010

So I have tried to install from LiveCD and from a LiveUSB stick. Installation goes fine till I get to CUPS daemon. Then I get the wait 30 seconds for CUPS to activate, that never works. Then it pops up with a wait one minute for CUPS to become available. Then it finishes the installation and restarts the system and I get previous installation has failed would you like to retry? It does this over and over again till I get an error with my user name and the mouse and keyboard quit working. I have tried in Failsafe mode, No ACPI, etc. and nothing seems to work. I don't know if it matters but I have an Asus mobo M4A785-M and an AMD Athlon II x3 440 chip. I am just ready to switch to Ubuntu

SUSE / Novell :: OpenSuse 11.2: Use Serial Mouse During Install ?

Dec 23, 2009

I'm installing OpenSuse 11.2 on some systems. Unfortunately the only mouse available is a serial mouse. Hence the installer doesn't recognize the mouse.And it is somewhat cumbersome using the TAB and ARROW keys to navigate the graphical installation.Does anyone know of a boot option I could use to get OpenSuse's installer to recognize a serial mouse ?

Fedora Installation :: Dual Boot Of 13 And Install Windows Xp On A Toshiba Satellite - Cannot Find C:inerrordialog.exe

Aug 4, 2010

I figured I would begin delving more into the open source environment by dual booting fedora and windows xp pro. Windows xp WAS already installed on the laptop, so I went through the steps to get fedora installed. Everything appeared to be working fine. Fedora came up nicely, and then I tried to boot windows (using grub boot loader). The Windows splash screen appeared, making me think things were fine. But suddenly the screen went black, with the computer going through a restart. This happened every time I tried to boot windows. So I began scouring the web to see if someone had a similar problem. I tried numerous things, but none of them worked. Of them, this appears to have gotten me farther than anything:

Going into grub I changed: rootnoverify (hd0,0)
to: rootnoverify (hd0,1)

Everything else remained the same. When I made this change, the computer went through Ramdisk, and the Toshiba recovery tool. Then two dialog windows appear in secession.

The first stating: Windows cannot find c:inerrordialog.exe
The second stating: Windows cannot find c:inootpriority.exe

I stumbled across information about the recovery console tool. Well, since my laptop has an OEM installation, there is no recovery console tool. But eventually, I was able to find one that I could download. (In case anyone is interested, here is the link for the [URL]

I burned the image to a cd on another computer, and then attempted to boot to the console from the cd/dvd drive on the laptop. But the system crashed, with the customary blue screen. I was hoping to be able to execute the chdsk command to repair whatever damage there might be, but this problem occurs each time I run the image. Fortunately I backed stuff up before this. I'm just hoping that I won't have to go through the ugly process of restoring everything because it's a lot to restore.

SUSE / Novell :: Install A D-Link Access Point On Suse 11.0?

Sep 16, 2010

how to install a D-Link Access Point on Suse 11.0 or steer me toward documentation that will do that? I configured the device on XP following instruction from this forum and the AP configured perfectly.The AP is plugged directly into the network port on the computer. It *should* function correctly without a router. I tried a restart and Suse has no idea it's there. The computer is currently configured for a wired connection which needs to be changed. The computer itself is going to be used as a small home storage server.

SUSE / Novell :: Can't Get Suse To Install On The Prepared 20gb Partition?

Aug 23, 2010

I've pre-partitioned my HDD and want to install 11.2 on the second primary partition.However, when using the installer, I can't get Suse to install on the prepared 20gb partition - it keeps insisting it wants to install on the large unallocated section of the drive.

I find the partitioner somewhat hard to use and the answer may be staring me in the face but I can't see it.

SUSE / Novell :: "Error 22: No Such Partition" From GRUB After OpenSUSE 11.3 Install

Aug 1, 2010

I tried to install openSUSE 11.3 from the Gnome live CD. I had four partitions set already for /boot, /, /home (ext4 all) and swap from a previous failed Linux Mint installation. I installed into them, and formatted them. The /boot partition is primary and pretty well into the disk. The other partitions are logical and at the end of an extended partition which has several partitions before them. There's also an inactive Windows primary partition at the start, and a second disk with a Windows installation and a lot of logical partitions.

After install, it looks like booting into grub works fine, and I get "Error 22: No Such Partition". I then get to the GRUB menu. If I choose openSUSE from there I get:

Booting 'openSUSE 11.3'
root (hd1,2)
Error 22: No Such Partition

Booting from the live CD it looks like /boot, / and /home contain data, so they must be formatted fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Audio Toshiba Satellite P100, 10.04?

May 9, 2010

I have a Toshiba Satellite P100-ST9212.reviously it had Windows XP installed and everything worked. Yesterday I installed Ubuntu 10.04 and the installation went smoothly (video, wireless, usb, etc) and I did all the suggested updates. However there is no audio being emitted. All visual and BIOS indications are that the audio should be enabled and working. I have version 4.20 of the BIOSI looked at this forum before submitting this and found general steps to test for.The following steps all succeeded

aplay -l
lspci -v
sudo modprobe snd-hda-intel

The next steps discuss getting fresh ALSA drivers from kernel but this implies that it once worked on a previous Ubuntu install which is not true in my case. So rather than chasing down this potential wild goose I thought I would post this specificestion and see if anyone has seen and better yet knows how to fix this.

Ubuntu :: Get Resolution To Be 1024x768 On Toshiba Satellite Laptop

Jul 3, 2010

I have recently installed Ubuntu on my Toshiba Satellite A25-S207 Laptop. Everything runs great except that the resolution will not go above 800x600. I had this problem before on the same laptop and was able to fix it but cannot find the fix now (I had to wipe my laptop clean in order to remove some pesky Windows partitions and reinstall Ubuntu) I have found several "fixes" but none work. I tried the one below as well as it applies almost perfectly to my problem

"I just installed the latest ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba-Tecra having "Trident Microsystems Cyberblade XP4m32" Monitor. After install resolution is defaulted to 800x600. I followed a method advised in some threads (arount xrandr and cvt) to increase the size (my laptop works with 1024x768 under XP). This was done OK and I obtained the resolution 1024X768 appearing in the drop list resolution options of the Monitor preferences but when I select the option if fails. Alternatively, when I execute $ xrandr --output default --mode 1024x768_60.00 i got the message "xrandr : screen cannot be larger than 800x600 (desired size 1024X76

I also saw a possible fix proposing to add "HorizSync 31.50-48.00" in Xorg.conf but I then I DO NOT have such a file in my /etc/x11/ after ubuntu install (supposing that this will fix my problem !!!)

Boot into recovery mode, when you get to the command line type:

sudo Xorg -configurewhich will create a default /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Add the lines:
HorizSync 31.0 - 70.0
VertRefresh 40.0 - 75.0to the Monitor section then reboot."

However when I entered the "sudo Xorg -configure" line my computer spit back saying that "sudo" is not an acceptable command
