Ubuntu :: Should Flash Player Be Using 60% Of My Dual Core Cpu - Ati Drivers - Pics Inside

May 3, 2010

Now this is a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04. I have done nothing but follow the steps on installing flash and ati driver from the main site. I have this problem on my desktop too which also has ATI graphics but with a AMD cpu. The desktop was upgraded from Ubuntu 9.10 and the driver installed from ATI site like my laptop. This is really troubling because while the video is in full screen its using over 90% of my cpu?? Then my laptop gets really hot so I just switch back to Windows 7(which only uses 15%). Last time I had this problem was with the FGLRX proprietary drivers on Ubuntu 9.10 with the desktop.

Ubuntu 10.04
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.1GHz
ATI HD 4650 1GB

Fedora :: Latest Testing Mesa Drivers Looking Good

Jul 13, 2011

I just found new mesa-dri drivers in the updates-testing repo, installed all of them, uninstalled kmod-nvidia, and it just worked with my geforce 9500GT. For me, this is a huge step forward, the only thing still giving problems is the DVI signal, so I'm stuck in VGA. Even then, I was able to get a better resolution with the DVI signal using this testing drivers than with the nvidia ones (I tried several links suggested by DBelton in the nvidia-installation thread for fixing the DVI issue, to no avail).

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.04 - How To Check That Latest Drivers Installed

Mar 22, 2010

I've just installed ubuntu 9.04 (had the disc from before) and I'm upgrading to 9.10 of course but I have a question. How do I check that I have the latest drivers installed for everything in my laptop? I'm the kind of person that has that nagging feeling in the back of my head telling me that everything isn't installed perfectly and I need to install my drivers properly (or at least ask).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Installing Latest NVidia Proprietary Drivers On 64 Bit Lucid 10.04

Jan 12, 2011

Thought I'd put this together based on what I just did as it's hard to find a place where you get complete info in one place for this topic.

Not taking any credit as it's just piecing together stuff found on the net.

Of course this is for my specific hardware and system so YMMV:
- Palit Sonic GT 240 card
- Lucid 10.04.1 64-bit
- Intel DG33FB board and E7200 CPU
- LG monitor L194WT at 1440x900 res

Reason for choosing the latest NVidia drivers instead of the ones available from the System > Administration > Hardware Drivers option is that the latest ones contain specific fixes for my card, that are not available in the others.


All of the following is based on a freshly installed 64-bit Lucid 10.04.1 system. Some actions may need modification if you have already been tinkering with Nvidia drivers.

1. Backup your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file if any. The default clean install of 64-bit Lucid 10.04.1 doesn't create this file so unless you have generated and modified the xorg.conf file for your specific needs, skip this.

2. Install the following packages


If this doesn't work, run


And paste the output of that in the command above so you get, say


3. Remove the following packages using Synaptic's 'Completely Remove' option
- nvidia-173-modaliases
- nvidia-96-modaliases
- nvidia-current-modaliases
- nvidia-common

4. Create a new text file disable-nouveau.conf in the directory /etc/modprobe.d/ with the following contents


5. Download the latest NVidia drivers applicable to your card from here:[url]

6. Save the downloaded file (e.g. in my case) to an easily accessible location like your home folder. Make this file executable by running, say


7. Check that the driver was correctly downloaded.


8. Run Update Manager, Check for updates and Apply any found


1. Restart and choose the recovery option from the Grub options list.

2. Choose the Root Shell option in the list of options presented subsequently.

3. At the root shell run the following


If you skip this, the driver installer will inform you of the need to do this.

4. This will present you with a login prompt. Login with your admin username and password.

5. Navigate to the folder where the driver installer is present and run it, like


6. Accept the license text.

7. Say Yes to installing the 32-bit Open GL drivers.

8. I think you need to say Yes/ Accept once more time to initiate the driver installation.

9. Once the driver is installed it will ask you whether it should configure xorg.conf for you, say Yes. This will create the xorg.conf file if not present in your system and modify an existing one if present.

10. Back at the prompt, shutdown the system


11. Restart and use the normal startup option in the Grub options list, if all goes well you should see your beautiful desktop.

Hardware :: Configure 1600x800 Screen Resolution With Radeon 5000 Series (hd 5730)

Feb 17, 2010

I have a new system with an ati mobility radeon hd 5730 chip. As far as I know, there are new drivers in the works, but aside from some articles, I haven't found anything that specifically tells me how to get them installed/working (at least, so that it works for the 5000 series of radeon chips).Has anyone had any luck with this yet? I'm just at the stage of installing, so I don't really care if it involves a different distro, etc. I've tried Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04-alpha2, as well as Fedora 12 (from the live CD) and so far no luck.At the moment, all I care about is getting the native 1600x800 working for my screen. I haven't a clue how do do seems like I might be able to do this using xrandr, but I don't know how to create a mode properly.

Slackware :: HD Video Playback On 2nd Gen Core I3 With Vlc?

Jul 17, 2011

I have a weird HD video in wmv and mkf files playback problem. Every HD video i attempt to play using vlc with vaapi hardware acceleration looks like this: My hardware configuration is i3 cpu, and i am using it's integrated HD2000 video card, which has DVI, HDMI and VGA outputs, which all i am using (not at the same time). However, the problem is present in every combination (DVI only. DVI+HDMI. DVI+VGA. DVI+HDMI+VGA).

As for software, I am using stock 32bit Slackware 13.37, with stock 2.37.6 kernel. And for HD video playback I have installed VLC-1.1.10. libva-0.32.0 and MPlayer-20110624 all these packages came from Alien pastures, so they are quality packages And my vlc settings are also stock :/

Slackware :: Enable Windows Wireless Drivers In Slackware 13.1 And How To Install XFCE

Aug 22, 2010

I recently installed Slackware Linux 13.1 , and my Wireless is down. I've only installed 3 Linux disto's on my main laptop (Ubuntu 9.10 , 10.04 , and Crunchbang Linux 9.04 , just had Crunchbang), and they all had the same problem. In all three , I was able to enable Windows Wireless drivers and every thing worked. Now , I'm assuming I have to the same ting in Slackware? Sorry , but I have no idea what my wireless card is. But I know that my laptop is a Dell Insprion E1705. One last thing , I did ifconfig and that wlan0 is my Wi-Fi interface. I typed ifconfig wlan0 up to see if that was the problem. After I did that , I got and error message. Then I typed ifconfig wlan0 down to see if it was down and it made wlan0 down. I tried bringing it up again , but I got an error saying it couldn't find the device specified. Also , how do I install XFCE? I really don't like KDE for some reason and would like to install XFCE. I chose XFCE over GNOME (my favorite) because I want to try something new.

Slackware :: What's Latest With Madwifi?

Jul 26, 2010

I'm in the process of installing Slackware 13.1 on my old IBM A22m laptop.Since version 12, I've used WPA_supplicant and the Madwifi drive to set up my wireless connection (using a PCMCIA D-Link card). It has worked great all along, up through Slackware 13.However, I've noticed that Alien Bob's Madwifi instructions and repository do not have builds or packages for Madwifi beyond Slackware 12.2.

I think I simply built the drive in 13 by modifying the slackbuild for 12.2.Anyway, what's the latest/best way to set up wireless with an Atheros chipset? Are there Madwifi packages available for Slackware 13.1?

Slackware :: Multiple Core CPU's And Can Assign Processes To Both Cores, Or Either One

May 15, 2010

Whenever I monitor my CPU's, it seems only the first is ever utilized, with the second always being at 0%.Does this mean it is not being used, or just not being reported as in use?Is there anything I could do to improve the situation if it is not being used as much as it could be?On Windows, I can assign processes to both cores, or either one. Is there a way to do something similar in Linux?

Slackware :: Getting Exception 13 When Use The Latest Qemu-kvm-0.12.3 On 12.2?

Mar 8, 2010

I'm getting exception 13 when trying to use the latest qemu-kvm-0.12.3 on slackware 12.2 w/ stock kernel:


exception 13 (6b)
rax 0000000000000010 rbx 0000000000008c00 rcx 0000000000006ebe rdx 00000000000c8c00

Google says this has something to do with Intel hardware and the way it handles real mode. run it with -no-kvm, but that's not much of a fix really.. so in the mean time I reverted to using qemu-kvm-devel-88 which works well, but is pretty old.

Slackware :: X Stopped Working - Failed To Activate Core Devices

Nov 18, 2010

Booting up this morning, no problem. But I accidentally let my laptop go into suspend mode, which doesn't work, so I had to force a restart (Suspend mode on my laptop won't allow me to wake it up again). Now, on rebooting, X doesn't work. I usually boot to RL3 then use startx. Now it just flashes the screen then gives me this error -

(EE) Error compiling keymap (server-0)
(EE) XKB: Couldn't compile keymap
XKB: Failed to compile keymap
Keyboard initialization failed. This could be a missing or incorrect setup of xkeyboard-config.
Fatal server error:
Failed to activate core devices .....
Fatal server error:
Failed to activate core devices.

Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support at [URL] for help. Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information. If I su - to root and then do "init 4", I get to xdm, and I can log in. X then starts, but with no sound, wrong keymaps, launchers not working; all sorts of things wrong. If I startx as root I get a normal desktop. I have tried copying root's xinitrc to /home/spoovy, but makes no difference.

Slackware :: Flaw In Latest Kernel Upgrades?

Sep 22, 2010

Just installed the latest kernel upgrades, rebooted, fired up KDE and got this message: "KDE detected that one or more internal sound devices were removed. Do you want KDE to permanently forget about these devices? The list of the devices KDE thinks can be removed: Capture: HDA Intel (AD198x Analog) Output: HDA Intel (AD198x Analog) Output: HDA Intel (AD198x Digital)"

It then asked, "yes, cancel, manage devices." When I clicked on "manage" it showed Esound as the only device, but it didn't work. So, was something was left out when the packages were compiled?

It runs a bit colder, flashplayer video actually goes all the way to the edge in fullscreen mode and no hardlocks yet (the kind with a blinking capslock light). Maybe fglrx isn't the only bad app in the village after all.

Slackware :: Updating To Latest Root CA Certificates In 13.37

Jul 17, 2011

After installing Slackware 13.37 I've noticed that while when in the Xwindows environment inside the mozilla firefox I can surf freely I cannot use wget with the same freedom.

I get the following error with wget:

How do I update the machine to use the latest root ca's I have downloaded and manually installed ca-certificates_20110502.tar.gz but it still refuse to work with wget. How can I install the root ca so it will accept ssl when using wget?

Slackware :: Fatal Server Error: Failed To Activate Core Devices

I have 3 accounts setup on this machine. One is root, one is my own, and one is for my kids. My account and root work fine, but today when I tried to log my kids on, startx fails (it also fails from runlevel4). I have tried creating new accounts and they fail as well. I'm not sure when the issue started, but it's been less than a week I believe. The consistent error which I receive is

(EE) Error compiling keymap (server-0)

XKB: Failed to compile keymap

Keyboard initialization failed. This could be a missing or incorrect setup of xkeyboard-config. Fatal server error: Failed to activate core devices.
