Any secureboot issues with Fedora 19 on Samsung Ultrabook?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 8, 2013
I'm about to install Fedora 19 on a Samsung ultrabook (NP530U3C), coming with Windows 8 pre-installed, and therefore with secureboot enabled in BIOS.
I've read of *severe* issues with installing linux on top of that, including the possibility of even bricking the machine :-\
I hope FC19 is sufficiently up to date to cope with such issues: can you confirm that? Has anyone had experience with FC19 on Samsung ultrabooks/secureboot?
Can you recommend a self-contained primer or intro describing the installation of FC19 dual-booting with Win8 on a secureboot laptop?
[SOLVED] No mobile internet on Samsung Note
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 30, 2013
Galaxy Note II running Android Jelly Bean. Wifi is fine, but no internet on the move. This kills navigation, etc.
I have set mobile data on, and the device has measured 214kb. I have set:
Settings / More Settings / Mobile Networks: Mobile Data; Data Roaming; & a valid APN; Network Mode LTE/GSM/WCDMA(Auto).
A lot of the other crap is not set up because Jelly Bean is clearly not aimed at my tastes with all these chat, IM & blog readers which I never use.
Any ideas what I left out that's costing me my data service?
[SOLVED] Boot a Samsung NC10 Plus from the SD card?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 1, 2012
Hello there and happy new year,
I bought a samsung nc10 plus.
It boots fine from the USB (TinyCoreLinux).
And: there is a SD card port in the front side of this netbook.
Is there a possibility to boot it from the SD card port?
Know somebody a bootloader recognizing SD ports for booting? (I have several distro on my 8GB SD card with extlinux).
On my old desktop, I have the "plop" bootloader for booting it from the USB port, despite this port is not recognized as bootable by the BIOS; perhaps something exist for SD ports anywhere in this world?.
[SOLVED] Using Ubuntu as a DLNA Media Server for Samsung TV
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 28, 2009
I have a Samsung UN46B8000 LCD television set to which I wanted to feed .jpg, .mp3, and other files from my computer which is running Ubuntu 9.04. Samsung televisions have included an Ethernet port and the ability to connect to a DLNA server for quite a long time.
I used Synaptic (or apt-get) and installed MediaTomb, which is a UPnP (DLNA) server, but it didn't work as it was installed. It would show thumbnails of my .jpg files, but it said "Unsupported File Type" or something when I tried to start a slideshow, so I did the following:
1) Enter mediatomb into a command line just so it creates a directory under my user ID. Then I exited mediatomb and edited the ~/.mediatomb/config.xml file and made the following changes:
2) Remove the comment tags <!-- and --> that were around the <custom-http-headers> section.
3) Add the following two lines to the <custom-http-headers> section:
<add header="transferMode.dlna.org: Streaming"
Ubuntu TV Flashed to Samsung Smart TV
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 22, 2012
Would it be possible to flash Ubuntu/Google TV to Samsung Hardware, Even better to be able to run both Samsung's Native Software and Ubuntu TV at the same time, as they are both linux distros.
Most D Series with 6000/6100 above should have the hardware to support it, If i tried to install it on my tv would I remove the samsung TV Software, or would I be able to execute it via the shell? (SamyGo Webshell)
Also would it be able to get the tv using this software to write to any format other than XFS?
(samygo.tv software gives access via ftp and webshell to inner workings of tv)
Samsung netbook NF210 Boot problems on dual install (Win7/Ubuntu)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 22, 2012
I have a Samsung netbook NF210 running Win7 and Ubuntu. It has been running successfully for some months. I installed the Ubuntu after and alongside the Win7. I recently rebooted into Windows and the Samsung recovery solution started. I didn't know how this would treat my linux partitions so I cancelled that.
Since then the machine is on a startup loop: Samsung splash -> screen with blinking cursor -> black screen -> repeat. Yuck.
The machine doesn't come with Win7 install discs, and I didn't make a recovery one. I have tried using the ones provided by neosmart, but they don't seem to be helping yet.
I have run a ubuntu live from usb stick.
It seems similar to this situation below but has different origin and furthermore the Win7 recovery disc doesn't work
I don't really understand boot processes/grub (to the extent I don't even understand where the grub is, and what starts it). (for example which of
Switching to Ubuntu from Windows 8 on a Samsung Laptop
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 13, 2013
I hope I am posting this in the correct section! I have recently learned about Ubuntu and want to make it my new operating system. I'm not the most tech apt individual but I am reading as much as I can and watching videos on YouTube. I found this forum in a Google search and am hoping that it will help with my installation and transition from Windows 8 on my Samsung Series 5 NP510R5E laptop to Ubuntu. I hope to learn all I can and currently I know very little to nothing about changing my OS so any help would be much appreciated! Thank you!
Dual boot ubuntu 12.10 and Windows 8 Pro on Samsung Series 9 NP900X4CA02
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 21, 2013
I managed to install ubuntu by allocating separate partition on my laptop. In order to do that I had to disable "secure boot" and select "CMOS" as boot type. Then it's successfully boot my USB and installed.
Now my issue is whenever I start my PC it's directly going to Ubuntu. If I change the boot type to "UEFI" or "UEFI and CMOS" it's directly going inside Windows. SO it's came down to BIOS change every time I want to boot into different OS.
I searched something and find these links useful.
As the thread owner suggested I followed official method.
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI (Part 5 in the Installing Ubuntu Quickly and Easily via Trial and Error section).
But when I try to use Boot repair I'm having issues. After running this first it ask me to enter the following commands in terminal.
sudo chroot "/mnt/boot-sav/sda9" dpkg --configure -a
Samsung SyncMaster 2343 Blank Screen Ubuntu 9.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 16, 2010
Warning, ubuntu newbie
I've read about a half a dozen threads now on various problems such as mine but haven't found a solution which worked. I recently purchased a new LCD screen which has a native resolution of 2048x1152. After I plugged it in via DVI cable windows 7 picked up on the new display immediately and adjusted my resolution, but when I booted into Ubuntu I don't see either the circle thingy (initial splash screen), I don't see the Ubuntu with the slider deal flashing, and I don't ever get to the desktop. The hard drive is not active and all that happens is I see a flashing cursor then even that goes away after a second or so. I can get to Ubuntu's desktop if I boot to the recovery mode, login, then run "gdm", then it starts up just fine and defaults to the native resolution of my new monitor. How can I fix it so I don't have to do that?
- Bought new LCD screen, SyncMaster 2343, resolution 2048x1152 via DVI
- Will not boot normally to Ubuntu 9.1
