In debian 7 is not possible to use apt-get install firmware-ralink by default. The solution is here You have to download firmware-ralink and after use dpkg -i in this file.

The issue is that one of the kernel headers / interfaces changed in a recent 3.x kernel. Where a UID / GID values were originally referred to as regular integers, they are now structs with a single element. Any code relying on the older definition now will fail to compile until updated to match the new kernel headers. I'm currently experimenting with ...

I agree with Keith, above - you likely have installed two different nvidia drivers over time. My suggested remedy would be: ensure you've updated to the most recent kernel for your distribution ensure you have installed kernel headers and any other dependent packages required for nvidia kernel module compilation reboot (to your latest kernel) install the ...

$iwconfig lists network devices. On the second line, it lists capabilities: $sudo iwconfig wlan0 unassociated Nickname:"<WIFI@REALTEK>" Mode:Auto Frequency=2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated Sensitivity:0/0 Retry:off RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Encryption key:off Power ...

lsusb itself can get you good results. For compact output I use lsusb -t, where -t shows the devices as a tree; this format reports the driver as well. Example output: $ lsusb -t /: Bus 04.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci_hcd/2p, 5000M /: Bus 03.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci_hcd/2p, 480M /: Bus 02.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, ...

I have tested your answers, and in fact, rewriting this line fixes the issue: // cflag = tty->termios->c_cflag; cflag = tty->termios.c_cflag; The vizzini.ko driver compiles fine, and it can be loaded with insmod.

It may be that the module you need is not included in the default kernel modules - you can likely solve this by installing the kmod-staging package. First you would need to download the RPM of kmod-staging from here or somewhere else (e.g. here) - you will likely need to download dependencies such as staging-kmod-common . These packages need to match the ...

I think this is will be more trouble than it is worth for most people, but I'll outline some steps. Note I did not try this myself so there could be unforeseen complications (but I'm fairly certain it should work, if done properly). I have not gone into detail about accessing .rpm contents, building a kernel/initramfs, configuring grub, or creating a DVD ...

Original answer provided on Ask Fedora (source) Original comment Also, please try adding i915.modeset=1 to kernel command line when booting (you should edit Fedora line in grub and add it to the end of linux/linux16/linuxefi line in the boot config, and then press F10), and then run glxinfo when booted. Also, I'd like to know what do you see when you boot ...

First things first: your hostname.urtwn0 file looks good and if you had a mistake in there you'd get completely different error messages. The message urtwn0: failed loadfirmware of file urtwn-rt18192cfwT (error 2) indicates that the firmware isn't installed in the proper location: As explained in loadfirmware(9), this function returns errno style error ...

I had the same question, and found the existing answers and comments here a little uninformative. After doing a little more research and asking on IRC, I found a more pragmatic answer. Broadcom historically hasn't cooperated much with efforts to open-source drivers, although it's been changing its approach recently. Because of this, there are still some ...

The lspci and lsusb commands just enumerates the devices connected to particular buses. They read id from the bus and use special file to map this ids to strings. The lsmod showns just list of linux kernel modules. Linux kernel module is part of linux kernel code which is loaded dynamically - this modules are not necessary drivers, it may be just any part ...

What about find /lib/modules/`uname -r` -name "*usb*"

I think the answer to this question is nebulous! If you are looking for a list of devices that are supported by the Linux kernel i.e. specific pieces of hardware try The H-Node search Device drivers are "Windows speak" really. The kernel's device support is either built in, or added dynamically be kernel modules, which is the nearest thing to a device ...

Enabling webrtc plugin to pulseaudio helped for my case. I posted the steps to enable in my answer on askubuntu.

I had faced a similar problem when a working wifi connection stopped working after a dist-upgrade. (I have HP Pavilion g6, the driver being ralink3290). The problem was that the upgrade modified the module and so the driver that was being used was not the same as was supposed to be used by my system. Use this command to see which wireless controller ...

You can force a device to use a certain device using bind. If the device is already owned by a different driver, you first have to unbind it. If a PCI vendor ID (10ec for Realtek) and device ID combination is not recognized, you can make it get recognized at runtime with: # echo 10ec 8169 > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/r8169/new_id Example: # lspci -s 04: ...

what you describe sounds very similar to a problem I frequently have when installing user PCs with nvidia cards and proprietary drivers (debian wheezy and jessie) - I'm usually able to solve it using the following procedure and the attached xorg.conf file (I remember trying the one from the Debian wiki site once, but something must have been wrong, or I ...

That depends on when exactly you will do this and what is required to install the driver. The most likely answer is no, it won't be a problem. When a live CD is booted, an initial ramdisk is first loaded which contains most of the tools necessary to run your system. If you are at a prompt, these tools are already loaded and you should be able to remove the ...
