OpenSUSE Install :: Undefined Video Mode 346 ?

Aug 16, 2009

While booting SUSE 11.1 64-bit I get these messages:

Probing EDD (edd off to disable)
Undefined video mode 346
Press Enter to see video modes available
And then a 30-second wait.

Is it advisable to set edd off? If so, how?

Would that get rid of the 30-second wait?

The video card (NVidia GeForce 6150 LE) and the monitor (ViewSonic VA2216W-4) seem to work fine with SUSE, so I don't understand the "Undefined video mode" message.

Having said that, I've seen much better text-rendering than, for instance, this messageboard. See attached image. Could that be a card/monitor problem? It looks better in Vista with the same hardware. So does Firefox in general.

When I try to install on a Dell Dimension 8110, After I hit enter to install, very small green text appears up top that says "undefined video mode" than a number that I can't make out, and another line that says something about hitting <SPACE> to continue. However, hitting space does nothing and the installation hangs indefinitely.

SUSE :: Nvidia Drivers And Dual Monitor Setup - Message Undefined Video Mode 31a

Jan 1, 2010

I have activated dual screen monitors using the Nvidia driver GUI as Sax2 would not correctly configure it. Now at every boot I get the message "undefined video mode 31a, press [enter] for a list of video modes or [space] to continue. After pressing space the system boots to my liking, how can I get rid of the message at every boot up?

I am using Suse 11.2 and KDE4.3.1 My video card is an Nvidia Geforce 7100 GS I thought I was using the Nvidia drivers as I have a GUI from Nvidia in my launch menu if I search "Nvidia" and I have completed the one-click installation. Although when I go into "My Computer" it says driver unknown.

Slackware :: Disabling High Intensity At The Video Card Level (text Mode)?

Jun 17, 2011

Kernel, slackware 12.0

When you do 'man bash', you'll see some words are highlighted. I'll say that the video card has used high intesity in these instances. How do I disable this video card capability? Can this only be done by recompiling the kernel? Of course, I am talking about the text consoles, i.e., the video card in text mode.

Slackware :: Set The Journaling Mode Into Data=journal Mode Of Ext3

Jan 12, 2011

I was reading about ext3 feature and I have read about its journaling modes. I would like to ask what is the default journaling mode of ext3 fs in slackware(or is it in all distro using ext3)? I'll install slackware when my new pc arrive and the fs I will use will be ext3 and I like it to have data=journal mode for its journaling. I have read in some wiki how to set the journaling mode into data=journal mode.

Code: # tune2fs -O has_journal -o journal_data /dev/sdXY Do i need to issue this command or is this the default mode in ext3 in slackware?

Slackware :: Undefined Symbol: Mysql_select_db When Reloading Httpd With INCLUDE

Feb 18, 2011

I have Slackware r13.0 32 bit installed, and I'm interested in getting SNORT installed with Barnyard and BASE to learn about IDS using my own home network. I'm following a guide found here:


I'm having trouble getting past the "create the BASE tables" section. Everything up to that point seems to have been functioning properly. When I attempt to login with my username/password, I get rejected.

The httpd error log reports the following:

[DATE] [error] [client] user snort not found: /frontend

I can manually get into the mysql database with this username/password combination. I've been working on this on and off again for the past few days, and I forgot what led me to the module, but I remember reading some posts elsewhere that pointed to this module. I found the source, and used apxs to compile and install it. However, when I insert the "LoadModule mysql_auth_module modules/" line into the httpd.conf file, I can't restart the httpd service, and I'm given this error:

httpd: Syntax error on line 117 of /etc/httpd/httpd.conf: Cannot load /usr/modules/ into server: /usr/modules/ undefined symbol: mysql_select_db It seems that the frontend URL on my server is attempting to use php to authenticate to the mysql database. Am I on the right track here? I've seen other posts with similar problems, but they recommend re-installing either mysql or php from the slackware site, but the Slackware package browser site ( is down until a new one is written from scratch.

Everytime my system boots, it displays 4 tux penguins above the text... however; on one of my older systems, it only displays 1 tux penguin... and on another it displays 2...So each time I boot, I have curiosity about this trivial issue, and now I can't take it anymore; I need to find out: what controls the number of tuxes when booting?

Slackware :: X11 - Maximum Number Of Clients Reached

Feb 21, 2011

I have done nothing with the system, but starting this morning, i experienced a strange condition on my desktop. I'm unable to open any applications at all. It will close instantly.

When i tried to run from terminal, it will give me an error like this:


I checked using


And i got around 234 which is too much that it takes almost all of the open files allowed. Logging out to text and brings back X will solve the problem, but it's only a temporary solution until X opens more sockets again. I'm running -Current (32 bit)

It seems that there's a hackish solution in here: [url]. Dunno whether it's a nice solution or not, but i'm willing to try it.

Ubuntu :: Video Mode Not Supported ?

Aug 7, 2010

I have windows 7 64 bits and i'm trying to install ubuntu 10.04 amd64. The installation was good but when i'm trying to boot on ubuntu i have a black screen with a message "mode not supported".

I've looked for the problem on google. The solution is to change the frequency of the monitor. Mine supports only 75htz max and on the error message I have 77htz, what's why it's not supported.

The problem that to change the frequency for lunux i have to be logged in linux in order to type commands in the terminal.

But I can't see a thing, only the message about the mode not supported, so I can't type anything.

I found some solutions here but i can't do what they ask, because I can't boot and the message doesn't disappear. [url]

Ubuntu :: Cannot Display Video Mode (after Update)

May 8, 2011

I am running a dual boot system. I have XP on one HD and Ubuntu 10.04 on the other. No problems. I boot back and forth all the time. Then came along Natty. Now I tried to boot over, and I get "Cannot display this video mode". I have it set up that when I restart, if im away from the computer, Ubuntu starts by default. So it eventually starts in ubuntu. But the screen where I used to be able to choose which operating system to boot into is now replaced with "Cannot display this video mode".

I am not wireless, and nothing has changed as far as hard wear. The monitor is some old Dell that worked perfectly fine with 10.04. I tried changing my resolution and settings to every different one, and restart, and still no dice.

To sum it up, after my update to Natty, when I reboot, my OS selection screen is no longer visible. Its now replaced by "Cannot display this video mode".

So now it seems, what ever setting this screen is running on, XP dont like it..... because of Natty?

I gotta get some work done in XP, so right now im screwed. My CRT is currently sitting outside in the rain. Or I would try it.

Fedora :: Copying CDs / DVDs (Video And Data) In Raw Mode

Dec 10, 2009

I'm trying to find out which application will copy DVD discs (video and data) in raw mode. Something that works for DVDs like cdrdao works for CDs. I tried using cdrdao but it errors out because the DVD disc is too big for it. I tried looking at Brasero but I can't tell if it offers a raw option. I see that Brasero lets you copy a DVD to a RAW image, then burn the RAW image back to a DVD-R. If Brasero uses RAW mode to do a direct copy, this would essentially do the same thing, but I can't tell if that is what it does. But, I think this will work.

Ubuntu Installation :: Wrong Video Mode After 1st Install

Jun 16, 2010

I just received a band new DELL laptop with a blank disk and installed Kubuntu Lucid Alternate 64 on it. No problem during install (the only option I specified was for an encrypted LVM), but when I try to boot all I can see are colored lines scrolling/blinking on the screen. If I press any key it changes to white text (unreadable) scrolling/blinking.

If I press a key during the boot and get into grub, I cannot edit the boot options, cannot go to command line, cannot use MemTest86 (maybe because the partition is encrypted). Booting with the recovery mode shows the same lines. Edit: if I try to boot with the standard LiveCD, I get the same mess, so it's abviously a video card problem. Damn, I had checked beforehand that Ubuntu could run smoothly on it.
