The e1000e driver is the one that can run the I2xx intel Ethernet Controllers. And the latest e1000e driver (as of this writing) is capable of running the I219 chip. The The NVM Checksum Is Not Valid message during boot is what was preventing the older drivers from being loaded. On other OSes (notably MS windows) that error is ignored. But Linux appears ...

INSTALLING UBUNTU ALONGSIDE WINDOWS 10 Installing Linux is easy, requires no BIOS reconfig/secure boot nonsense. I've tested tested with both 14.04 LTS and 15.10. First build an Ubuntu install disk on a USB thumb drive (either 15.10 or 14.04 LTS). Boot into windows, use Disk Management utility to shrink Windows partition, reboot and boot from USB by ...

Please check the BIOS setting before installing Linux. The common BIOS optiona for Linux installation is to enable CSM support and select UEFI and legacy support option in the boot device control. Then, in the secure boot option, set the os type to other os.

my recipe, I guess found on the internet, which I have followed with success on eee-netbook, says make a file named 99-hdd-spin-fix.sh. The important thing is starting with '99'. make sure the file contains the following 2 lines: #!/bin/sh hdparm -B 255 /dev/sda copy this file to 3 locations: /etc/acpi/start.d/ /etc/acpi/suspend.d/ /etc/acpi/resume.d/ ...

Looking into the BIOS options, I found "Wake on lid open". Even if it says "Enabled" it does not always work. I found that when I upgrade the kernel, I have to go into the BIOS, select "Disabled", reboot, go into the BIOS again and select "Enabled". Amazingly, with this process the laptop wakes from suspend on battery as well.

You seem to be mixing things. You should not trust any article on the internet that the "VGA Controller recognizes a video card" or not. You have two video controllers in your system, one is the integrated graphics controller of your CPU which is VGA compatible, the other is the nVidia GeForce one. New drivers for nVidia are supposed to support that board, ...

I got using jmtpfs (it's in repository of wheezy). Enable MTP on zenfone usb options and do this how admin: # mkdir asus # jmtpfs asus -o allow_other To umount: # umount asus Sorry, my eglish is very poor.

I also own Asus UX501 and I also faced this problem for a long time. Laptop is awesome but without touchpad multi-touch functionality, you can not make full use of it on Ubuntu. If you on kernel version less than 4.10, you can try using this kernel module. As per Arch Linux, I think this module got added in core kernel 4.10, so if you upgrade your kernel ...

It's actually a Kernel Bug, see Kernel Bugtracker here: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=108801

In your BIOS, please disable Secure Boot and Fast Boot. When GRUB begins, please tap the letter e Move to the end of the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT and replace quiet splash line with nouveau.modeset=0then press [F10] to proceed.

I managed to fix the checksum. Now Ethernet works fine under Linux. I explained the details in my answer to my SuperUser.SE question. Basically, I first patched e1000e to skip the NVM checksum validation for (i = 0;; i++) { if (e1000_validate_nvm_checksum(&adapter->hw) >= 0) break; if (i == 2) { dev_err(pci_dev_to_dev(...

It probably refers to the Node connector, that would pass hardware monitoring information (fan speeds, temperatures etc.) from a compatible PSU or fan extension card. It's (briefly) described on page 1-19 of the motherboard manual. So it probably should actually be NODE. The "Internal Reference Designator" should normally match the connector identifier ...

Someone answered this one on the Debian forums: http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=141915&p=698118#p698118 The steps are: 1. Log in as root, or boot on single user mode (that's the suggestion in the post). 2. Run 'Xorg -configure'; this generates a file named xorg.conf.new. 3. Copy this file to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/xorg.conf

As for 1) and 2) the AP/AsusWRT is probably only listening to other APs/other antenas, and not to it's own antenas during the ASUS site survey. It has at least to put one of the antenas in monitor mode. Hence not seeing/ignoring itself, or at least only showing a partial version of the SSIDs it supports. As for 3) for measuring the speed between the two ...

I struggled with a similar issue in Debian 9, installed on a Lenovo G40-30 Laptop. I went into Hibernate/Sleep and trying to initiate again the screen didn't show up although everything seemed working. The solution is actually quite simple. It seems Linux OSs, in particular Debian and Ubuntu need at least a 4+GB swap partition for Hibernate/Sleep to work ...

I don't have direct experience with these but I was able to find a couple of current things: Canonical/Ubuntu just announced fairly recently (2018-02-04) a "platform that runs both a mobile-based full touch interface and a true PC experience from a single smart device" postmarketOS is a Touch-Optimized Linux Distro for Smartphones and Tablets

The problem can be in NVIDIA. after the GRUB menu appears, select Try Ubuntu and press E . add nouveau.modeset=0 in boot parameters (after word splash). If it will not help, and you install 16.04.3, trying install 16.04.2 - in 16.04.3 problem with kernel and NVIDIA. After installation, updated the system (and rebooted the PC) After install Ubuntu remove (...

Check your device's ID against the supported list (from the developer's Launchpad page): Supported readers (run command lsusb to find out the ID of your reader) https://fprint.freedesktop.org/supported-devices.html and 0483:2015 147e:1003 147e:3000 0483:2016 147e:2015 147e:3001 147e:1000 147e:2016 147e:5002 147e:1001 147e:...

So, apparently something changed with latest Kernel update (i.e. version 4.9.10). Following things are possible now, Brightness keys are now being registered. I tested it in custom Keyboard setting. xbacklight is working as expected. No more errors. Here's what I did, Mapped F5 and F6 keys (under All Settings -> Keyboard -> Click on '+' indicator) to ...

Btw, I have tlp installed (I don't know if that could have to do with it...). This may very well be the ca[u]se. I faced the same problem today after a system upgrade. I have found a workaround for this. Plug in your drive and then run the following commands, waiting for a couple of seconds between the two: $ sudo tlp ac $ sudo tlp bat These commands ...

apt installs files in your / directory, so you can't let it install package on your SD card unless you want to move your whole / to the SD card. But instead you can mount your SD card in /usr where most files of a package would be installed there (I checked on my system, it's size is about half of my /). To do this, make sure your SD card have linux-...

I had similar problem. Everything was fine but suddenly, when I suspended my laptop (buy closing the lid or via menu), it was going to sleep mode with led blinking, but when I woke the laptop, it restarted as it was shutdown.

Solution, that worked for me: Go to a directory, where this information is stored cd /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/ Get your maximum brightness cat max_brightness In the following step, use echo your-maximum-brightness, mine is 5273 Create a text file set-max-brightness.sh with the following content #!/bin/bash echo 5273 > /sys/class/...

Neither CentOS nor Fedora are "RedHat Linux". There isn't really any such thing; there is Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which replaced the previous Red Hat Linux. Fedora and CentOS are both Red-Hat sponsored projects but are not Red Hat products. Generally, Fedora is compatible with whatever is supported by the upstream kernel. Fedora does have kernel engineers,...

I have exactly the same problem with an ASUS K551L XO301H I acquired recently. Passing the parameter psmouse.proto=bare to the kernel boot line fixed it for me.

there's a workaround given here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1314198/comments/31 no full support of the touchpad, but at least... go ahead & see, if it'll work for you as well!

Having the windows drivers won't do you any good in Ubuntu, because linux can't use them. A quick search turned up one vivobook model which uses an Atheros AR9485 wifi chip. This is supported by the ath9k kernel driver, which should be included with any stock linux kernel. the wireless card drivers appear to have been corrupted or deleted You have not ...

Damn Small Linux is OLD (kernel 2.4). You should choose another distribution. Take a look at this question.

You might want to consider a Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu or Suse distro to prevent driver problems. You can do minimal installs with those systems as well. Choose a minimal or base install, then add the needed packages after.
