My bad, I did compile kernel and the driver but not actually installed it. The solution is: gentoo~ # cd /usr/src/linux gentoo linux # make modules_install gentoo linux # cp arch/x86/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86_64-4.0.5-gentoo gentoo linux # reboot

As per my current understanding. No one (user space script) is actually calling modprobe\ insmod to get these CAN drivers inserted, this is because they are Platform Devices. This is identified by: The alias: platform: information from the modinfo command The source code for the c_can_platform which defines the c_can_plat_driver as a ...

Will I find drivers for my graphics card that will allow me to use it at full performance? It depends. Purely free software drivers like Nouveau might not be able to get all the performance from your hardware, but Nvidia has some proprietary driver for it. BTW, unless you are playing games (or code vector numerical applications for CUDA or OpenCL), ...

I've managed to get it running; installed plasma desktop package: pacman -S plasma (more details here) and pointed X to it(appended the following line to ~/.xinit): exec startkde Running startx launches KDE.

Some clarifications: nvidia-340xx-utils is not the driver itself, it is utilities for the (if I've understood correctly) proprietary driver which you haven't installed. xf86-video-* is open source video drivers, of which xf86-video-nouveau is the nvidia compatible one. pacman -Ss searches for packages, whereas sudo pacman -S installs them. Use sudo pacman ...

Thanks to @frostschutz, I could measure the write performance in Linux without NCQ feature. The kernel boot parameter libata.force=noncq disabled NCQ completely. Regarding my Seagate 6TB write performance problem, there was no change in speed. Linux still reaches 180 MiB/s. But then I had another idea: The Linux driver does not use transfers of 32 MiB ...

I have some time trying to install Catalyst 15.3 on Fedora 22. Since the driver is only available in Ubuntu, I decided to try making my own driver (I did not programmed) and after several attempts I made it, I built one driver, who you can install generically on any GNU/Linux distribution. The following instructions are for installing the driver on Fedora ...

Figured it out. I went to NVIDIA's website and downloaded their Linux drivers. It was a pain figuring out how to install them because of an x server error but it turns out I had to kill gdm3. Once I did that they installed and now it works.

You shouldn't be using the live media for this at all. That creates a new in-memory instance of the OS on every boot, with nothing saved from the previous boot. This means that if you write any code and save it, it is being saved to a RAM disk that will go away when you reboot. You could save your changes to some other system and then copy them back on each ...

I enabled EFI for my VM while using gparted-live-0.22.0-2-i586 and it started working. I also noticed that the disk needed to be added to a SATA controller. It appears that older versions of gParted required EFI to be disabled.

Debian should not be any different than any other distro, other than kernel version. As always, device drivers depend on the kernel. The correct driver for the DWA130F1 with a USB ID of 2001:3c25 is rt2800usb. A patch adding this device to the USB tables of that driver was submitted to the kernel as commit ea345c145ff23197eab34d0c4d0c8a93d7bea8c6 by Scott ...

Figured out a solution. I used the sysfs device attribute stuff as seen here: https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/driver-model/device.txt

Is there some way for me to tell it during the auto install that any issues that come up I don't care about? To disable the d-i from asking for non-free drivers for networking you can add d-i hw-detect/load_firmware boolean false so it ignores any hardware that needs non-free drivers. # If non-free firmware is needed for the network or other hardware, ...
