Ubuntu Installation :: No Boot Splash In Lucid On System With ATI Graphics Card?

May 7, 2010

I have been unable to get the fancy purple bootsplash (plymouth) since I installed Lucid Lynx on my ThinkPad T43. The bootsplash would up when I had booted off of a Live CD, but all future instances post-install only shows the blinking terminal cursor, followed by the GNOME log in screen. This has occurred after upgrading from Karmic, and after attempting a fresh installation of Lucid. Here's what I've tried so far without success:

comment out "GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0" in the grub file tried running echo FRAMEBUFFER=y > /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash update-initramfs -u under su but it did not work because my conf.d directory doesn't contain a file called "splash", but only one file called "resume". This fix was taken from [URL]..A Google search showed that a lot of users with this problem have NVIDIA cards; however I'm running ubuntu on a system with an ATI card.

Ubuntu Installation :: Replaced Graphics Card In Dual-boot System?

Jun 15, 2010

I currently have integrated graphics on my system but I am going to gettign a new graphics card to use. Click here to see it. I have a dual boot system with Windows Vista and Ubuntu 10.04. How would I install it? I know how I would plug it in but setting it up is another issue. I want it to work on both Vista and Ubuntu. Another question is what I should do about my current integrated graphics (Do I disable it or something like that?)

Here is my system's specs: HP Pavilion a6554f

Ubuntu Installation :: Best Graphics Card To Work With Lucid 10.04?

Jun 20, 2011

Last month I installed a newer MoBo + CPU and PSU, (See system specs in my signature) and moved from Maverick to Lucid 10.04.

I was running Natty 11.04 64bit up until a couple of days ago, but that was locking up like mad. I did a fresh install of 10.04 over the whole HDD yesterday...though cannot recall it asking me if I wanted 32 or 64bit...will neeed to check)

I'm using an ATI Radeon (Sapphire?) x1650 PRO graphics card - but borrowed from a friend as my previous card wouldn't fit in the upgrade motherboard. Ubuntu is running quite fast with it but often stutters when on Firefox or Chrome. With Natty the system would lock up at least once an hour, with Lucid - at the moment it's only locked up once in 6 hours... I'm assuming this is just problems with Ubuntu and not the card. I get no odd lines or color on the screen.

I'll need to give this card back at some point... I'm wondering if people could suggest other cards (Nvidia/ATI or other) that are known to work happily with Ubuntu 10.04. I've got a budget of around �40, but then I'm not gaming so guess shouldn't need anything too high spec. (My PSU has a PCI-E connector if needed...though doubt it will be!)

Ubuntu Installation :: Activating Graphics Card Won't Letting To Boot

Sep 19, 2010

I'd been using 10.04 for a while and then one day the computer wouldn't boot. It just loaded up to a low res purple screen with the loading dots on it and froze. I managed to get all my files back and everything and re-install and it was working fine until I enabled the graphics card and then the same problem occurred. I've isolated the problem to the graphics card. It's never given me issues before and I've been running Ubuntu for about 2 1/2 years now so I was kind of surprised.

It's an NVIDEA card by the way. Any suggestions as to what I should do? I need hardware support for graphics because I do some work in 2D and 3D and as such need to be able to do that stuff on my PC. I don't want to have to keep reinstalling to check if the graphics card is working again yet but it's the only thing I can think of =(

Fedora Installation :: System Requirements - What The Minimum Graphics Card Spec Is To Enable GUI

Apr 18, 2011

Trying to make sense of this Linux stuff, by trying to install Fedora 14. First impressions are it?s a parallel universe populated by those who hark back to the era of Windows 3.1 / DOS, and earlier, where command line instructions and messing around with .ini files was all the rage. Which might all be a great little hobby to go back to, being more 'at one, and intimate' with my machine and learning a new skill to take some pride in, but all it means so far is my patience is being really tested by needing to learn it all from scratch!

The installation guides seem to suggest that if your graphics card is not good enough then the installation will default to the text based one. Which is what happened in my case. I can get to the login prompt after the installation, but that's the point where it gets really frustrating in having my machine think it?s a mid 1980s Commodore 64 or something!! Never mind PEEK and POKE, I just want to THUMP or KICK it.

I read somewhere I should start X Start to start the GUI. Nope, x start or xstart doesn't do anything. I then read that only works if I had installed X Windows. Can't find where or how I install X Windows though! I then read, as I say, things default to purely text if your graphics card is not good enough, but then I can't find anything about what the minimum spec is. Seems odd that a card that can cope with Windows can't work with a system as basic as linux/fedora with its frustrating command line-intensive way of working.

- what the minimum graphics card spec is to enable GUI?
- how to install this X Windows thing?

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Boot Fail After Installing Graphics Card?

Apr 1, 2010

I installed a new graphics card (Nvidia GeForce GT240 1 Gb, 128bit DDR3) on my gigabyte VA900M motherboard, with my computer running a dual boot of windows 7 (64 bit) and ubuntu 9.10 (64 bit). The computer would not boot past the memory test stage. To solve this, i flashed the BIOS with the latest upgrade for the motherboard from the Gigabyte website. This still did not work, so, doing the usual "testing hardware combinations by unplugging and replugging", I removed 1 Gb of RAM, which solved the problem of booting past memory test (a case of too much memory?)

Problem: The problem now is, GRUB wont boot from the HD, unless I have the Windows 7 disk (or Ubuntu Live) in the DVD drive. If i dont press a key to boot from the disk, Grub will then load. how to make GRUB boot from the HD? Do I need to redirect/reinstall GRUB? Im pretty sure it is not a BIOS problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot Setup (10.10 / Win 7) And NVidia Graphics Card

Oct 11, 2010

I'm trying to setup a dual boot of windows 7 x64 and Ubuntu 10.10 i386. Before I got windows 7 and the new graphics card it ran 9.10 perfectly. If I take the card out (Nvidia 8800 Ultra), it will install fine but when I put the card back in, it crashes. It appears that it just doesn't like the card.

Ubuntu Installation :: Restore Grub2 Splash Graphics?

Apr 6, 2010

I installed Ubuntu on my system after first installing Kubuntu. Now when I boot into Kubuntu I have this garish mashup of Ubuntu and Kubuntu splash screens. They are mixed up in both the grub2 boot and the Kubuntu login.I tried running sudo update-grub within Kubuntu but that didn't change the screens. How do I restore the default (elegant) Kubuntu splash screens?

Ubuntu :: Lucid Displays Blank Screen After Boot Splash On Battery Power

May 6, 2010

I'm on HP tx2000 Tablet PC, with nVidia GeForce 6150 Go onboard, 4GB of RAM, Ubuntu 10.04 amd64 Desktop. I keep getting a blank screen after boot splash when I'm on BATTERY POWER. Though I get a blank screen, the screen comes alive when I SUSPEND the laptop by closing the lid, and then RESUME the laptop. Then I can see the logon box and whole desktop.

Usually people get problem by suspending their laptops (usually the screen not coming back after resuming), but now I SOLVE the problem by suspending my laptop. Well like I said I can somehow get the screen right, but I really can't (and don't want to) suspend and resume my laptop every time I boot. Problem occurs REGARDLESS of type of display driver I use. nVidia proprietary, nouveau... whichever driver I use, I get the same conclusion.

Ubuntu Installation :: System Will Not Boot After Lucid Upgrade

May 2, 2010

I have an AMD64 system, which I recently upgraded to Lucid 10.04. The system now fails to boot after the upgrade. Recovery mode makes no difference.

When I attempt to boot, I get a series of messages about file systems needing checking, and also some messages from ureadahead-other. (process terminated status 4), though a post here says that status 4 is in fact not an error.

I have sucessfully booted the Lucid desktop install CD in live CD mode, mounted the filesystems, and started parts of my system in a chroot. In that system I tried running an update, and removing plymouth, but it made no difference. how I can get my system working.

I did take a backup of /etc before I upgraded, so I could get back to a karmic install, but the pain in doing so would be considerable, so I would prefer to avoid that if possible.

Debian Hardware :: System Can't Detect Other Graphics Card

Jun 12, 2011

I have two graphics cards in my computer. One is a crappy built-in nVidia GeForce 6150 SE, and the other is a high-end (as of 2008) GeForce in the 8000 range. I would like to use the latter, but I can't get anything to detect it. Testing which is in operation is easy: they have separate video outputs. I've tried changing the BIOS settings, but to no avail. I'm stumped. Could it be that my other card is dead? How could I test it? I'm fairly certain that it worked back when I used Windows, as I remember having to use my DVI-to-VGA converter (the other card's outputs are all DVI).

Ubuntu :: Installed Most Recent Drivers For Graphics Card Killed System / Fix It?

Mar 7, 2010

Completely new to Ubuntu, basically never used anything but Windows before, hadn't even had a chance to properly test out Ubuntu before I broke it. So, sorry if this question is very easy...or if I'm posting it in the wrong place...

Anyway, I cleverly installed the most recent drivers for my graphics card, and it killed Ubuntu - it won't start now. This happens on Windows, too, but Windows will System Restore for me. How might I fix this in Ubuntu?

I can choose Ubuntu from the grub menu, but then the screen goes blank, the fan on my computer goes into overdrive, and nothing happens.

Am currently running my Karmic Koala from LiveCD...

Ubuntu :: Can't Boot 11.04 Graphics Card Driver

Apr 30, 2011

i was trying to uninstall old nvidia driver and install new driver via terminal. i used these commands (sudo dpkg -p nvidia -173; sudo apt-get --purge autoremove) and then this is the one that froze up on me (sudo apt-get install nvidia-current)computer froze while installing the new driver. now i cant boot up ubuntu 11.04. i get the grub menu but cant boot OS. i cant get recovery mode to boot either. it stops after it reads my dvd drive. i dont remember exactly what i did to get this message but i got a message that says alloc magic is broken at 0xb7ce5c80. im assuming that i have no graphics card driver installed and this is why i cant boot. is there anyway to boot from a live cd and manually install the graphics card driver? im on a dual boot with win7 and upgraded from ubuntu 10.10 so i dont really want to do a clean install and have to install tons of software etc.

Ubuntu Installation :: 3D Graphics With Lucid & ATI 9000?

May 6, 2010

I've tried various searches and haven't found anything quite matching this. Please forgive me if I am repeating though. I upgraded my Dell D600 (ATI Mobility Radeon 9000) from Karmic to Lucid. On Karmic, all 3D effects (Expo, Rotating Cube, etc.) worked fine. On Lucid, all still work but, once once enabled, the 3D effect is very dim - almost as if the backlight on the effect itself is turned off (i.e., when rotating the cube, the cube is dark but the background Skydome is illuminated). Once the effect is over, normal illumination returns. Running Karmic from the live disk and the effects are fine again. A buddy upgraded his D610 (next ATI in the line) and does not have the same issue.

CentOS 5 :: Graphics Card Can't Work After The System Resume From 'suspend' Mode

Every time I suspend my computer and then resume it, it seem the graphics card can't resume and the monitor says 'no signal', but the system still responses, I can use keyboard.

Is there any configuration I can't do to make it resume normally? I've searched a lot in Google but can't find out any one else run into the same problem.

Fedora :: 13 Won't Boot Without A Graphics Card Installed

Jun 28, 2010

I am running Fedora 13 with a motherboard that doesn't have onboard graphics, so I had to put a PCIE card in to do the install.

However, I am using the box as a file server so I don't need graphics, and would like to be able to use the PCIE card for another computer.

So I took the card out and powered on, waited about 3 minutes and then typed in the login details. I then tried to SSH into it from another computer and couldn't connect, so it must not have booted up properly (I tried a few times to make sure).

I have read about a similar problem that occurs on Fedora 9 when there is no monitor attached - this is apparently solved by adding "nomodeset" to the grub entry, but that didn't work.

There is no X or Gnome/KDE installed and the default runlevel is 3.

PS - also, usually when the power button is pressed there is a pause before it powers off, but without a graphics card the power button turns it off immediately no matter how long you have waited.

OpenSUSE Install :: System Freezes After GRUB (Normal Or Failsafe) Boot Splash Screen

Apr 17, 2011

I noticed that after making my build in suse studio my system freezes immediately after GRUB ( Normal or Failsafe) boot splash screen. I also noticed that this happens only with the specified kernel below. I'm not sure when using Kernel 2.6.37, one had the same problem. I never used it. The original kernel 2.6.34 had no problems such as the one I have described. My systems has no further problems only that it takes several restarts to go past the "Freeze". Below is a list of my system specs:

openSUSE 11.3
Kernel-pae 2.6.38.2-4.1 from Kernel Stable.
GRUB 0.97-174.1 from openSUSE 11.4
Upstart 0.6.5-33.1
xorg-x11-server 7.6_1.9.3-142.1 from X11:xorg 11.3 repo.

The GRUB from openSUSE 11.4 has been very stable and non-problematic. I will be buying an Intel core i5-2500K in a few months that's why I need the latest kernel and XOrg-X11-server. What could be causing the freezing?

General :: Make PCI-E Graphics Card Visible To Ubuntu When The Motherboard Has Integrated Graphics?

May 2, 2010

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:

Integrated graphics
PCI graphics
PCI-Express graphics (PEG)

I set the BIOS on PEG, but

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?

Debian Configuration :: Blank Screen On Boot. Graphics Card Not In Xorg.conf?

Jul 10, 2010

I've been using ubuntu on a new desktop for a couple of months, but i had an old HP that was given to me in my basement. It has 384Mb of ram, and thats because i had a 256Mb stick laying around. I installed debian becuase it is more suited for older hardware (at least from what I've read). It installed fine, but it boots to a blank screen, and pressing ctrl+alt+F2 bring me to the command line. I checked /etc/X11/xorg.conf to change the driver to vesa, to find out my video card isn't even shown. I ran lspci and I found that it says my graphics card is Intel Corporation 82810E DC-133 (CGC) Chipset graphics controller (rev3) In the device section of xorg.conf, it merly says Identifier"Configured Video Device"
