Is it possible to do this? I'm just thinking maybe I can run KDE without using the GPU so that I can use the GPU for computation (CUDA). The system I'm thinking of using is a laptop with Nvidia GTX260M video card. I've seen people talk about frame buffer, but I don't quite understand it because it seems that some people are talking about using frame buffer even when they have a video card on their system.
I'm trying to get 9.10 to work nicely on a Thinkpad Edge 14".Everything is working fine, except that I have issues with the intel graphics drivers.The monitor's native resolution is 1366x768 and I have Intel HD graphics card on it.I have changed my xorg.conf to use driver = "vesa", but now I get only a resolution of 1024x768.I tried to use xrandr to fix this, by adding a new mode etcetera, but this does not work - I believe because the driver is the issue.Also, doing Ctrl+Alt+F[1-6] gives me a blank screen rather than a console.
How do I find out the details about my graphics chip? Intel Corporation Arrandale Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 12)Maybe I should go more bleeding edge for my drivers? How do I do that?
I'm having no end of problems trying to get 10.04 onto my older Toshiba Satellite A50 laptop that I use as a spare laptop round the house. The laptop previously dual booted with XP and Xubuntu fine. I wanted to give Lubuntu a go to see if it's performance was better on this older hardware. When installing I got the black screen of death, and also got the same problem with the Xubuntu CD. Research pointed me in the way of this article: [URL] I was able to boot the Lubuntu Live CD using the instructions outlined in method A.
Once installed however I rebooted and Grub seemed to be knackered. Just sent me to a recovery console of which I had no idea what to do. As I could no longer boot into Windows either I reinstalled Xubuntu 9.10 and all was fine. I decided yesterday to give it another bash this time connecting to my wireless from the live cd hoping it would download an update to fix this problem. Nadda, Grub this time did show and I was able to boot into XP, but upon picking my Linux distro I now get an unrecognised device error with a long string of charachters and then it dumps be back into the grub menu, choosing the recovery mode version does the same thing.
If you have a Radeon graphics chip and upgrade to Jessie, install firmware-linux-nonfree, before rebooting.
My dist-upgrade to Jessie seemed flawless until I rebooted and couldn't get into X.
Seems Jessie boots into Gnome by default, but Gnome now requires 3-D acceleration. For my Radeon graphics chip (ATI Radeon 3100), this requires firmware-linux-nonfree, which I didn't need before and was not installed as part of the upgrade.
A boot message alerted me to this need.
I was able to get X going with xinit. I used FVWM; for XFCE I believe the command is:
xinit /usr/bin/xfce4-session -- :1
and from there I installed the package firmware-linux-nonfree.
I initially installed Debian Lenny on my system but couldn't get sound to work so I upgraded to squeeze hoping that the newer kernel would somehow fix that. Unfortunately, the update caused the screen to flash on and off starting at the login screen - I'd get a split second with the screen on and then it would go off for a second or two. The boot screen still allows me to boot from Lenny's linux kernel, and that still works. I also had this problem when I installed ubuntu on this computer so after some searching around I remembered that adding radeon.modeset=0 as a boot option fixed this. Now the screen no longer flashes, but everything is really slow - I think that disabled graphics acceleration? After some searching around it seems that these problems are probably caused by something called KMS in newer linux kernels but I don't really know.
Anyway, does anyone have any ideas as to how I could turn on graphics acceleration again without having the screen flashing on and off? Or suggestions for making sound work? I think in the past (on ubuntu) I ended up having to enable the proprietary graphics driver, but on the other linux distros i've tried I used proprietary graphics and flash and my computer got slower and slower and started to crash, so I'd rather stick to the open source driver if possible - i don't need really need 3d acceleration. Stability is the reason I switched to debian. My computer is running Debian squeeze amd64, intel core 2 duo e8400, ati radeon 4830, 4 gigs of ram. relevant results from lspci: 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller. 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV770 LE [Radeon HD 4800 Series] 01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc HD48x0 audio maybe part of the audio problem is that there are two audio devices listed?
I have Ubuntu 9.04, and a HP laserjet 1018 printer.
I install the printer using:
And when it ask me about plugin I give the path to it. (the 3.9.2 version of the plugin, because Ubuntu 9.04 has the 3.9.2 version of hplip)
well I install the printer, everything works perfectly.....but, when I turn off the PC, and turn it on again, the printer does NOT work!, I send work for being printed but mothing happens , Ubuntu tells me that the job was printed but ... no case, my printer does not print it.
I have to install it again since cero. what can I don to stop install it every time I turn off the computer ?
Recently I installed Ubuntu 10.10 64bit and I have a problem with it.
I have a motherboard with internal audio card as well as I have ATI 2600 card. When I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 sound via motherboard worked perfectly.
But some time later it disappeared. Actually "Output device" that represents audio card disappeared. See screenshot of the Audio Settings dialog.
I made 2 thing - most likely that one of them cause this problem: - I tried to setup Panasonic Plasma TV as a second monitor via HDMI output of my video card (ATI 2600). - I added maven-backports repository (new kernel or new audio driver?)
Have anybody seen this problem? Are any pointers how to fix it? If you need any additional info - let me know I'll be glad to provide it.
I have 10.04 LTS installed onto an SSD and have a spinning disk for crud, and my brother wants to give me his old GA-PH67A-UD3 and 8GB of RAM if I buy an i7 2600 to put in it. The thing is, I'm happy with my GA-965P-DS3 with Q6600, so I don't actually need an upgrade. So, can I get away with replacing the mobo, chip, and RAM and putting the SSD in the equivalent SATA port on the new mobo (/dev/sda), and will it cope? Will the kernel detect a new board and chip and carry on accordingly? I'll have to remount my crud drive to the same mount point it expects, and if my user account as the same UID as the old system, I'm hoping that might cope, too. Of course, I might be suggesting complete evil, and if this was Windows, I wouldn't even dare think about it, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Linux might cope with this kind of change where Windows would fall over in a heap.
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:
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?
I have just installed Ubuntu (9.10) and noted that in order to successfully run the trial off the CD I had to test in "safe graphics" mode. I have an NVIDIA GEforce 6600 GT card - which was discovered by Ubuntu in the first few minutes of the trial and so I activated the recommended driver and continued to test. After a successful trial I installed Ubuntu (dual partition Ubuntu / Windows XP), however, it seems the install didn't activate the required driver (as part of the process) and so I'm unable to get into my newly-installed Ubuntu at all. All I get is a flashing tty screen asking for my username and password - however it's erratic and won't recognise what I type. So - I'm stuck in a catch-22 as there doesn't seems to be a safe graphics mode option via the start (GRUB?) menu list.
Has anyone tried to install Karmic on a laptop that has HP's new Linux on a chip OS installed? I think it's a scaled down Splashtop desktop and at least a portion of the OS is hardware based. I sure wonder what would happen if/when I try to install grub and Ubuntu.
I have here a Fujitsu-Siemens laptop with Windows Vista on it. The graphical chip of this laptop is damaged in such a way that during boot I can see texts but once the GUI starts it is over. No more picture. This happens with Vista, but also when I boot a live-cd from Ubuntu.The owner of this laptop, not me, wants to buy a new one but would like all data to be saved.I have downloaded the server version of Ubuntu 10.04 (so I stay in text mode) and with the CD I can boot into restore mode. There it is possible to mount the internal hard-disk, after which I can see the data.
But... how do I get it from the disc? How do I setup the network, which I believe is running already, to make the laptop a part of my home network? Now from other computers I can't see this laptop, and I have no idea how to see my computers from this laptop.Or is it possible to burn a CD/DVD in Restore mode. If so how do I do that?
11.3 installation appears to be completely unusable for mission critical workit's running/freezing on a Toshiba a300 laptop, intel 965gm gfx, using the drivers that where installed by 11.3whenever the unstoppable screen/monitor saver kicks in, it freezes the machine irrecoverably.same as: 11.3 kde constant lock upsthe unstoppable screen/monitor saver has been a pain in the neck in 11.2 too, is it possible to COMPLETELY REMOVE any code that will make the gfx go on standby? what a pain when you are watching a movie! disabling everything obvious never worked! wtf?
I have no experience with embedded systems hardware and am looking to build a micro-budget underwater robot for exploring the bottom of a lake on the family homestead. I don't have much money to spend on this, but I want to run Debian Linux (I have lots of Linux Admin experience and am right at home with a terminal) or something like that on a small chip which needs to be able to:
Connect to the control computer via ethernet. Get digital or analog data from a GPS module, pressure sensor, etc. Control a few thrusters. Do various other hardware IO functions. Possibly control a robotic arm (this is a long shot, I know). And costs less than about 100 dollars. I have no experience with embedded systems hardware so I really don't know what to buy or where to start, aside from the fact that I heard that this would be a good place for something ARM-related. I am a software developer with time to burn as far as writing the programs to support this goes.
I programming a software using the FTDI chip Ft232 ,and using the D2XX driver(version 1.0.4).I already written some software in the MS Windows and the function FT_GetBitMode works , although in the Linux( Fedora 64 bits and Ubuntu 32 bits) this function returning FT_IO_ERROR (4). I already try differents different USB ports, run as root user or change the USB dev permissions.
I have Intel Atom based development board which has eMMC chip. I can successfully boot Fedora 11 on this board from SATA drive. However Fedora doesn't see this eMMC chip as external storage. The "fdisk -lu" command doesn't show presence of any mmc device.
I'm trying to get a Rosewill RNX-N250PC wireless card w/ ralink rt3062 chip to work in a new build. I am able to see the card in Device Manager, but can't get the driver to work despite trying many of the suggestions I've read elsewhere. I installed build-essentials and downloaded the driver from ralink. I unzipped the folder, and started to follow README as well as this thread rt3062 [URL]. So, I've adjusted MODE and TARGET as instructed in Makefile. I also adjusted the following sections of red text from Makefile:
ifeq ($(PLATFORM),PC) # Linux 2.6 LINUX_SRC = /lib/modules/$(2.6.35-22-generic)/build # Linux 2.4 Change to your local setting #LINUX_SRC = /usr/src/linux-2.4 LINUX_SRC_MODULE = /lib/modules/$(2.6.35-22-generic)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ CROSS_COMPILE = endif
Then I set HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y and HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y in /os/linux/config.mk in the driver folder. Then I code: $ make (also tried sudo make with same result) and get: make -C tools make: Entering directory `/home/das/2010_07_16_RT3062_Linux_STA_v188.8.131.52/tools' gcc -g bin2h.c -o bin2h make: Leaving directory `/home/das/2010_07_16_RT3062_Linux_STA_v184.108.40.206/tools' /home/das/2010_07_16_RT3062_Linux_STA_v220.127.116.11/tools/bin2h cp -f os/linux/Makefile.6 /home/das/2010_07_16_RT3062_Linux_STA_v18.104.22.168/os/linux/Makefile make -C /lib/modules//build SUBDIRS=/home/das/2010_07_16_RT3062_Linux_STA_v22.214.171.124/os/linux modules make: *** /lib/modules//build: No such file or directory.

I installed (for PC i686 Pentium4 1. the PCI-card InnoVISION EIO DM-8401, connect a two hard drives, configured Raid1. established a basic system "Debian 5.0.3", and reboot system. system gave me a message:
Loading, please wait [ 3.004004] 8139cp 0000:02:07.0: This (id 10 es: 8139 rev 10) is not an 8139C + compatible chip [ 3.004004] 8139cp 0000:02:07.0: Try the "8139 too" driver instead
I have the disk driver:

I have got a server which has a motherboard with nvidia mediashield raid built in, with Centos installed it picked up the raid 5 array that i had configured as one drive so the os install was straight forward. When i booted the netinstaller of opensuse 11.3 run though the setup, when getting to the partition setup is was picking up the three hdd as seperate drives and not one, so i got to a certain point and aborted the installation and i re run the installer, the raid status said the array was degarded or something which i knew there was nothing wrong with it as i had set it up only about 2 weeks ago and there was one drive missing aswell. So i removed the array and re configured the array and rebooted and the raid status said healthy again as it was before on centos, then i run the opensuse installer again and it went though the process again but completely stop at "Searching for linux partitions" , cursor was working fine , but nothing else was so i had to press reset.
This was my problem, i know kind of what the problem is, but what i want to know is , i thought opensuse is based on rhel same as centos but how comes centos has the drivers for the raid chip i have in my board and opensuse has not.
Starting over, based on this thread: [URL] And my problem which is the same! I have the same audio chipset and experienced the same issues. I hope there is nothing about that chip. I tried with XFCE4 on Slackware 13.1 and now KDE4 on Debian, I found a workaround on XFCE by installing gstreamer and using it instead of xine as the phonon backend. That workaround apparently doesn't work on KDE.
Something interesting (also in the original thread): Software mixing through alsa DOES work since I can play several files in aplay (command line) or xine (gui standalone) simultaneously. I don't have another soundcard. Should I install pulseaudio anyway? Switching to OSS ?
Im having xeltek eeprom programer but I cannot read the chip data on the buffer file, when I read the chip using programer the datas are being sent to the buffer I can just see the adress line ,hex line and ascii line then I dont know which is the exactly data ,
Looking to build the first computer system from scratch and I have chosen Linux as my system. Learning about Linux is a must as I would like to get away from MS. Also, building the system will better equip me when I pursue a business venture within the next year or two.I presently take course work in accounting for a bachelor degree, but will attain another degree in software engineering, both from Herzing University. My present skill level in programming?
