Debian Multimedia :: Audio Devices Not Enabled?

Sep 18, 2010

On a fresh install of squeeze (with the exception of some installed video firmware and the latest updates from the repos) from the kde cd.

System is running an ASUS Sk8V motherboard with onboard sound, also a SB Audigy 2 ZS sound card. Speakers are plugged into the sound card.

Sound worked fine before in Lenny except I had to create /etc/modprobe.d/sound with the following to get the system to prioritize the SB card over the onboard audio

options snd-emu10k1 index=0
options snd-via82xx index=1

I've done the same with the new install, and still no audio.

I followed the troubleshooting steps from the FAQ forum, but am stuck on the end, which suggests doing the following:

The following string needs to be added to the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file
options snd-hda-intel model=YOUR_MODEL

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth Working - Enabled But Not Finding Devices On Scan?

May 12, 2011

I am using Ubuntu, now installed KDE (kubuntu) and I have Bluetooth working and enabled but for some strange reason the bluetooth scan is not finding any devices in spite of the fact that I have my mobile phone with bluetooth on and discoverable. My laptop is HP Touchsmart tm2 2102tu. Here's output of my hciconfig -a

Ubuntu :: Networking Windows 7/vista/xp / "this Feature Cannot Be Enabled Because The Required Packages Are Not Installed On Your System"?

Jun 7, 2011

I have my home network set up like so. My router has 4 ethernet ports so I have 1 hooked up to a network hub where I have 2 computers running windows xp and 1 running windows 95, on my other router port I have a desktop using ubuntu 11.04 and I have 2 windows 7 laptops and 1 ubuntu 11.04 laptop connecting wirelessly. All of the computers can see each other in my network map except for the ones running ubuntu. I can successfully ping every computer on my network from every computer without fail (even the ubuntu ones). The weird thing is that my ubuntu computers can see and use files from all of my windows computers but still nothing can see the ubuntu computers. I have set up samba to no avail and when I open file sharing and try to enable it on ubuntu it comes up with "this feature cannot be enabled because the required packages are not installed on your system." I have done clean installs of ubuntu 11.04 and 10.10 on both ubuntu computers and kept them up to date but the same problem persists. I have tried to do the same steps above with all of my computers wired but still nothing.

Debian Installation :: Error: Driver 'pcspkr' Is Already Registered, Aborting

Mar 15, 2010

I recently installed Lenny 5.0.3 i386 onto an old HP XE783 box. I've got a couple of errors that pop up on boot, and I'm not sure how to troubleshoot them. A couple of the lines from /var/dmesg that strike me:weird, boot CPU (#0) not listedby the BIOS. ACPI Error (dsopcode-0595): Field [ALB2] at 120 exceeds Buffer [CRSA] size 104 (bits) [20080321] {along with two other ACPI Errors (psparse-0530): Method parse/execution failed; and (uteval-0233): Method execution failed.}.Error: Driver 'pcspkr' is already registered, aborting.

The most annoying thing (I think) has to do with the ACPI errors: the box won't power down after issuing a shutdown command; it bumps into single user mode then prompts for the root PW.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lsb_release Reporting 10.04 On 10.10?

Oct 14, 2010

I just did a fresh install of 10.10. I was running 10.04 but formatted that partition when installing from a USB key. Pre-install, I ran:

sudo dpkg --get-selections > package.selections Post-install, I moved some of my etc files back in. I updated my sources.list. Then I ran
sudo dpkg --set-selections < package.selections
sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade

However, lsb_release is reporting 10.04. When I boot the system it doesn't show the typical boot screen but rather "Ubuntu 10.10" and output of what's loading up. On my laptop (upon which 10.10 installed fine), the splash screen shows the dots loading up with the new Ubuntu splash (10.10 style).

I go into Update Manager, and it thinks I need to upgrade to 10.10. Thing is, I'm already on 10.10. My kernel version is and I'm running Gnome 2.32.00 according to the System Monitor. I'm wondering if I'm getting 10.10 updates or 10.04 updates since my system incorrectly thinks I'm on 10.04.

Server :: Df Reporting 100% But Du Reporting 20%?

Apr 15, 2011

Today morning I logged on to one of our servers (through ssh -X) to perform a routine maintenance. When I tried to open a GUI application, it failed to connect to the X server of the workstation. Eventually I ended up issuing the command


df -h /

and shockingly it showed that / is 100% used. I checked / using


du --max-depth=1 -xh /

to check the sizes of the individual directories, which showed that only about 18% of the / is used and that confused me badly. There was no quick solutions when I googled around; but luckily I found the following link which nicely explained the issue I had:


All I did was found out the services responsible for those unreleased files (using lsof +L1) and restarted them. That is it. Now df reports only 18% of the disk is used and all my X things started working again, thanks to Walker.

Fedora Installation :: F15 Wrongly Reporting Memory As 3.2 GB In 4 GB System / Fix It?

Jul 18, 2011

I had Fedora 13 64 bit before which was correctly reporting memory as 4GB. After I wiped off Fedora 13 and did a fresh install of Fedora 15 32 bit, the memory is reported as 3.2 GB in the system Info and also in free -mt command code...

Where is 600MB memory gone missing? I checked the BIOS setting and it correctly says total memory is 4GB.

The hardware is exactly same and I did not change anything.

Ubuntu Installation :: "Delay Prior To Thermal" - No Option To Disable This BIOS Setting ?

Oct 14, 2010

H/W : Intel 1.6GHz, BioStar U8548

S/W : Ubuntu 8.04 + RTAI + EMC2 (CNC controller)

In configuring CNC controller system, latency-test must be run to find maximum jitter of the system. It counts about 17,000 ns for few minutes, then it suddenly rise to 260,000 ns. It is impossible to control CNC with such large jitter.

In tracing this problem, I found that Award BIOS setting "Delay Prior to Thermal" is firmly engaged in making a problem. When I set this setting to 4 minutes, it makes large jitter periodically with exact 4min 15sec period. When I changed this setting to 8 minutes, its jitter is 8min 15sec period.

But, there is no option to disable this BIOS setting.

I heard that ACPI enabled OS can take over the ACPI function of the BIOS (which may include this "thermal" setting), but RTAI tuned kernel don't include ACPI modules.

Is there any solution to this problem ? If I recompile kernel with RTAI with ACPI processor module enabled, would it be a another problem maker ?

Debian Installation :: Lenny In OpenSolaris - Reporting 520T Drive?

Mar 18, 2011

I am attempting to get Debian Lenny 5.0.8 to run on an OpenSolaris snv_134 lx-branded zone. Debian 6.0.0 is a total flop due to the included udev requiring a kernel >= 2.6.26 and the kernel provided by the lx26 brand being only 2.6.18.So I installed Debian 5.0.8 into a VirtualBox VM, configured it, then tarred up the install with the following command as root, from /:

tar -cjf /mnt/share/debian-5.0.8.tar.bz2 --exclude dev --exclude sys --exclude mnt --exclude proc *

I then installed that archive into a solaris zone, booted it, and had to run

perl -pi -e "s,1 1,1 0," /etc/fstab

in order to fix up the fstab. Now it boots (with a handful of warnings), but the problem I'm having is that I can't run apt. I get:

E: Couldn't determine free space in /var/cache/apt/archives/ - statvfs (75 Value too large for defined data type)

Fedora Installation :: (preupgrade Grayed Out And Rpm Reporting No Packages) - How To Recover

Apr 7, 2009

I have a system set up with Fedora 9 - the Fed10 installer choked on an older Intel video chip. I've decided to try updating to 10 in anticipation of further upgrading to 11. Reading this forum and elsewhere convinced me to try preupgrade. I started it and saw Fed10 as an available upgrade path, selected it. At that point, the system appeared to freeze -- the progress bar got about 10% along and everything sat for 10-15minutes. I exited out of preupgrade and tried the rpm path.

That didn't fly either -- I was told that there were no packages marked for upgrade. I read more about preupgrade, including the fact that it might give the appearance of having locked up although it was still working. So I went back to preupgrade. This time, Fed10 didn't show in the selection box. It was, in fact, empty except when I checked the box for beta/unstable and could see Rawhide.

How do I get back to where I was with preupgrade so that I can finish what I started? Alternatively, how can I do a 9 to 10 upgrade from this point (preupgrade grayed out and rpm reporting no packages)? I expect to further upgrade to 11 in a couple of months, so the step to 10 is necessary. I do not have a separate /home partition and I have some very expensive (and difficult to set up) software that insists on sitting in /usr/local, so a full install, though doable, isn't something I want to undertake -- I'd much prefer to do to upgrades from 9.

Ubuntu Installation :: MBR Fix For Win7 Required Using U10

Jul 28, 2010

I made the MOST basic of errors. I had ubuntu 9 installed on a partition of my netbook HD that was primarily running w7. I was running out of disk space and decided to remove the ubuntu partition as a short term measure - however I didn't change any of my GRUB settings so now I can boot into anything...

In only get a GRUB RESCUE> prompt on trying to boot. From searching the internet I've come to the conclusion that my MBR is F%^ked and need to restore it. I've downloaded ubuntu 10 and can run it from a mem stick, but I cannot get the ms-sys package to install - I keep getting the following error.

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install ms-sys
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package ms-sys

Is there another way of removing GRUB completely? Or is there something else that I can try to successfully install ms-sys?

Ubuntu :: ACPI Thermal Zone Configuration

Aug 31, 2010

I originally installed Kubuntu 7.10 on an ACER laptop (exact model escapes me at the moment) and subsequently upgraded to 9.10 and then to 10.04. Starting with 9.10, I had problems with the computer suddenly turning off in the middle of doing work. Eventually, I figured out that when this happened, the bottom panel had gotten quite warm so it probably a thermal control measure. Further, I discovered that I could prevent this by setting the power regulator to powersave, which effectively kept frequency scaling at 50% and under which I never had the computer suddenly turn, the only exceptions being when unplugged the computer and replugged it in and it would switch to dynamic power policy thus running at full power.

However, after "upgrading" to 10.04, I can't do anything to restrict frequency scaling. Whether I set the regulator to powersave, ondemand or anything, CPU frequency can go to full capacity until it heats the CPU to the critical trip point, invoking poweroff. Sometimes, this would happen just a few minutes after "acpi -t" reported 40C (is there some way to test the output from acpi, I've seen it report obviously wrong figures such as 0C when the room was considerably above freezing?). While trying to figure out what to do, I discovered the /proc/acpi/thermal directory and subsequently the /sys/dev/... directory.

I would like to know which directory I should focus on and what files in order to establish trip points and direct actions that will force the system to reduce heating so it won't reach critical. It's not like it's particularly compute intensive tasks triggering this. I have had it happen while running nothing more than the windowing system, system monitor, terminal and paging through a file with less. I have looked for documentation online but have not found anything that clearly explains what I need to do. The only parts I understand from what I've found are "[critical]: S5", "[active]", and "[passive]". The "[passive]" line included items like "tc=..." and "device=0x...", but I have no idea whatsoever what any of those settings do and the documents do absolutely nothing to explain them.

1) what file I need to edit, 2) what options I can set in the file, 3) what values those options can take and 4) what effects those values have on ACPI's behavior. Lastly, the default setting HAVE GOT TO BE CHANGED. Having poweroff as the first line of defense against overheating is simply UNACCEPTABLE. What would happen if this occurs during the middle of a system upgrade? I know at least enough to figure what needs to be done, even if I can't figure out how to do it. Many users can't even do that and I don't think they should have to. The installation process should automatically detect what methods of reducing thermal output available (reducing frequency scaling, throttling, fans) and set trip points that invoke them before reaching critical.

Ubuntu :: Silver Thermal Paste - Fan Runs Almost Nonstop

is this something worth buying? if i do buy it, where do i apply it? to the fan somewhere? i've already taken this thing apart a couple of times, i don't mind doing it again, but i'd like to have an idea of what exactly i need to aim for.
