Slackware :: Plug Projector On Laptop With Slackware 13.1 Installed?

Nov 3, 2010

I was trying to plug projector on my laptop with slackware 13.1 installed. The problem is that the projector stops showing whenever I start X. I can see everything starting from LILO loader, but whenever I type "startx" - bam, no signal or just a black screen on the wall. I try to switch to console mode with ctrl+alt+f1 - the view appears, switching back to X with ctrl+alt+f7 - view disappears. I am using awesome WM. I tried XFCE, but the result was the same. I also tried to change resolution to

xrandr --output default --mode 1024x768 / 800x600
, but again, no difference. My laptop is ASUS F3Jc. Fn keys doesn't help as well.

Hardware :: Installed Slackware 13 - Laptop Switches Off

Aug 29, 2009

This morning I installed Slackware 13 i386 and started configuring it. I've got a problem as my laptop has turned off unexpectedly twice since I started using Slack 13. I don't know if it's related to Slackware 13 but it has never happened before on this laptop with Slackware 12.2 or any other system. The first guess would be overheating. I checked the laptop's BIOS but could not find anything related to cooling down.

The laptop seems quite hot but it's nothing unusual for it. I also noticed that acpi is not installed by default. Would it make much difference? The laptop is pretty new (6 months) and the cooling module seems to be clean. The only thing that differs from my previous installations is that for the first time I installed ATI's fglrx and enabled desktop effects. Could it be a buggy video driver?

Slackware :: How Should Proprietary ATI Driver Be Installed On Slackware Current 64-bit?

May 15, 2010

I've tried a few different ways to install the ATI graphics driver "fglrx" to get 3D acceleration.If I try to install using the standard file "" from the ATI web site it appears to work but then I discover it actually got an error.I saw a reference to ATI requiring 32-bit libraries to install their 64-bit driver. Is there a link or post that explains how to add the 32-bit libraries. Will that solve the problem, or will I just waste more time trying that?

Slackware :: Automatic Microphone Enable On Plug-in?

Jul 15, 2010

What I'd like to have is alsa mixer enable microphone on plug-in and mute it on plug-out.

It's because when enabled it produces unwanted noise in the speakers, so I have to manually turn it off once I'm done with using skype and turn on again when I get a call. I'd like to automate that process.

Slackware :: ZynAddSubFX As DSSI Plug-in For Rosegarden?

Jan 21, 2011

The sound capability of ZynAddSubFX and Rosegarden's ability to use LADSPA along both Windows VST's and DSSI plugins like ZASF are simply excellent illustrations of Chris Cannam's ability to transform the chaotic mess of audio on Linux into something sonically and visually!


An incredible combination ... which doesn't even address the ability to produce stellar musical documents as well... I'll probably move my comments on adapting this combination for Slackware64 from the Desktop thread to here ...

Slackware :: How-to Disable Hdd Spinoffs On A Laptop

Aug 6, 2010

I have Aspire one 752 netbook with slack 13.1 installed. I installed laptop-mode-tools from slackbuilds to control power management and etc. I'd like to make sure that sda drive in netbook never spins off when not running on batteries. For now it seems to spin down after every half a minute and is producing clicking sounds. I issued 'hdparm -B 255 /dev/sda' which seemed to work - no clicks any more, and no spinning-up sounds. What is the right way to make this change to be applied whenever netbook is on AC power?Edit: Also, how to make this 'hdparm -B 255 /dev/sda' survive hibernate, as it reverts to '96' after being resumed:
# hdparm -B /dev/sda/dev/sda: APM_level = 96Edit2: Ok, i changed hdparm -B values from 254 to 255 in laptop-mode.conf, since values of 254 and any other i tried(1, 96, 128) gave ioctl errors and were not applied to drive.

# hdparm -B 96 /dev/sda

Slackware :: Kernel Not Working On Laptop

May 31, 2010

The kernel (using huge-smp) does not work for my laptop. It tries to boot, but after the line (Freeing init...) the screen goes blank. No logs since the filesystem is not yet mounted (I think). I've blogged about it already (posted it here, investigated myself, etc) for the previous versions of the kernel. I've been following every updates on -current and most of the thing works well except for the kernel. The kernel that works out of the box for my machine was 2.6.33. Previous kernel that works was Then it went, however, I need to compile using the config of 2.6.33 to make it work on .1 and .2. Now, I tried the same thing on but some cryptic error occurred while loading the kernel.

That all were using huge-smp kernel. Now I tried to compile a generic-smp kernel (of course with initrd). (I did not install kernel modules yet). It works and it boots. However, since there are no kernel modules, it freezes after starting xfce at runlevel 3. So my guess is that somehow, my previous problems were either config related or module related. I though that if I will as well compile the kernel module, it may work, but as I look at source/k it seems that the source for kernel modules are coming the install package from slackware/a packages. Sorry, just a newbie.

Slackware :: Laptop And TV-out With Intel Chipset?

Jul 26, 2011

I've got a Laptop with Intel video chipset. I've got a full slackware 13.37 installation and I'm using the huge-smp kernel all though it's not recommended. But I don't think the issue is kernel related. The problem is that it detects that there is a monitor connected to the s-video connector, but there is no picture on the screen. It doesn't matter what mode I use, but ideally I want cloning.

What happens when I use KDE and krandertray (or system-configuration for that matter) is that I can choose resolution and everything but no picture shows up on the TV. When I press the "Identify monitor" (Or something) button both the "1 TV1" and "2 LVDS1" shows up on the same monitor (laptop). That is weird.

Has anyone experienced anything similar or could point me in some direction as to what could be done?(I haven't had the chance to test modifications to xorg.conf quite yet, but I guess that should work. However, I think it's worth it to get rid of this bug)

Slackware :: Lockup On -current On Laptop

Jun 8, 2011

I've been running a Dell Latitude D600 laptop on -current for a couple of months. After the last kernel update, I needed to switch to the non-SMP huge kernel due to lack of pae instructions.Since then, I've seen 2 complete lockups. They've both happened when it was sitting idle, and in both cases, Xfce is gone, and the console is spewing kernel messages faster than I can possibly read.

I got a new (used) Sony Vaio VGN-SZ440, I installed Slackware-current x86. Everything pretty much worked out of the box, including wireless. The only thing that is not working is my sound (It is not muted I already checked :-p). Here is my lspci output:

Slackware :: Using Lilo To Boot The Laptop?

Nov 29, 2010

I have a laptop that I have installed Slack-current on, I am currently using the usb image to boot from. Windows7 is installed on sda2 and sda2 has been marked with the bootable flag, I would like to use lilo to boot the laptop do i install lilo to sda or to sda2?Will win7 still be able to boot using lilo as the boot loader ?

Another issue i noted during install is that the kernel panicked using the dvd to install with an error stating it could not read from the booting device, I eventually used the usb-pxe install to load the system however since 13.1 i have not been able to load a system using the dvd.

General :: Screen Not Showing On Laptop But Showing On Projector When Connected

Apr 18, 2011

When I try to connect a projector to my laptop (already running) and hit the fn+f7 (the designated button for switching screen), nothing happens. I see "no source found" on projector screen and my laptop screen works perfectly. Now if I restart the laptop with the projector connected, I see all the intial booting messages on the projector screen (not on my laptop), then the gnome login screen appears on both the projector screen and laptop (when the login screen appears on laptop it looks like it has lower resolution than my usual laptop resolution). But immediately after I log in, my laptop screen goes blank, and projector screen becomes the only active screen.

If I restart without the projector, again all normal operation on laptop screen is restored.

I feel like I am missing some very silly options. Any help is appreciated.

Here is the output of xrandr when the laptop is connected:

Slackware :: Printing From Laptop To Several Cups Servers?

Jan 17, 2010

I connect my laptop to several different networks and need to print in each of them when I am connected there. In the past (ie 12.2 and earlier) I solved this by running a cups server on the laptop and having it poll the appropriate cups servers in each network.

I was thinking that perhaps in 13.0 I could bypass having the cups server on the laptop and that KDE would "see" the various cups servers available. However this does not seem to work...

Slackware :: How To Configure External Monitor In Laptop

Sep 6, 2010

I have slackware 13.1 installed on my laptop and use kde.I just bought a new external monitor 1680 X 1050. The laptop's monitor is 1280 X 800.

Then, just when i enter system configuration-monitor-monitor configuration the laptop's monitor automaticly turns off. Then i configure the external to 1680 X 1050 resolution. This happens every time i have to enter slackware. How to setup my xorg.conf file. You can see it below:

Slackware :: Slap DVD Laptop Kernel Config

This is a kernel config for I started with the Slackware Generic-SMP 32bit kernel config (this is a 32bit kernel config).
