Usually such problems reflect the unavailability of a proper driver. Try opening driver-manager and see if some additional drivers need to be installed. If the above doesn't work, then search for some wireless drivers in synaptic with keywords like wireless, dell etc.

Try connect to wifi manually by wpa_supplicant and dhclient.

It should work if you change the ownership and permissions of the device node you've created: chown kalak:kalak node chmod 600 node (assuming your username is kalak, your main group is kalak and your device node is called node).

I've seen in the Debian doc that if xorg.conf is missing (which is my case) Xorg will probe your hardware on every startup. So I did an apt-get install firmware-linux-nonfree (I have Debian stable) and installed the xserver-xorg-video-????? (most popular video cards). After having tested in some machines now, this seem to be the answer since all the tests ...

It is what it says, it is not supported. Now this installer supports only Ubuntu 14.10. And generally speaking there is no need to install this driver at all. You can upgrade your graphical stack by running: sudo apt-get install --install-recommends xserver-xorg-lts-utopic libqt5gui5 libgles1-mesa-lts-utopic libgles2-mesa-lts-utopic ...

Only the vendors themselves know the real answer but here are some guesses. I would assume that it's simply because it would make the device more expensive. By requiring the OS to inject firmware at run time they get to avoid the need for non-volatile memory like ROM or Flash on the device. Secondarily, I would assume the vendors might also feel that the ...

When you mention 'contained in the device already' I am assuming you are referring to a method for device driver and firmware to allow a scenario of an operating system to query a device with a predetermined (possibly sanctioned API by the IEEE or other governing body) to then respond with a response of 'here is my device driver memory chip location address' ...

The only SAS controllers I've ever used were LSI ones. I like them for their quality and performance and also for their copious diagnostic information. I have reviewed all the other SAS drivers in the Linux kernel and none of them provide anything that is even close to what LSI has. Not all of that diagnostic info is documented and some of that is downright ...

Did you check if 3d is enabled? glxinfo |egrep -w 'rendering|renderer' If you read something about "raster" or "no",then is not enabled. Even if enabled the opensource driver are good,but there is a lot of work to do to reach at least for old cards the same performance of the nvidia proprietary driver. Is not clear this "OpenGL vendor string: VMware, ...

To solve this you should use the official Drivers from Nvidia and from the OpenSuSE's Nvidia repo. The easiest way is to go to this link and select the "GeForce 6 and GeForce 7". You are selecting GeForce 6 because of the output of lspci Installing multiple Nvidia drivers can cause issues (I know from personal experience) so if the YUP suggests removing ...

I had the same problem last week. EXACTLY the same. I solved it by enabling legacy and UEFI in my BIOS boot settings. Good luck!
