Possible Bug? Qlogic Firmware on Ubuntu Server 08.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 6, 2009
I tried to post this in the server section but I don't have permissions.
A couple of weekends ago I migrated my primary file server from a Debian 3.1 box running a custom kernel (Fibre Channel, BigMem, and RID support) to Ubuntu 8.10. My only issue was that the driver for my Qlogic QLA2310 fibre channel card wouldn't boot out of the box. Once the machine was booted I could run modprobe qla2xxx and the driver would come up but that isn't a good thing on a semi-mission-critical file server.
I received this hint from the qla2xxx driver in the dmesg:
Firmware image unavailable.
Firmware images can be retrieved from: ftp://ftp.qlogic.com/outgoing/linux/firmware/.
Failed to initialize adapter.
It turns out the firmware (ql2300_fw.bin) is installed in /lib/firmware by default from the linux-firmware package. However, a link needs to be made from /lib/firmware/ql2300.bin to /lib/firmware/<KERNEL VERSION>/ in order for it to be included with initrd using `update-initr

How to load VESA drivers at startup (when booting from LiveCD)?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 5, 2009
When I boot from Ubuntu 9.04 CD then the initial menu (with e.g. the keymap and language menu) is displayed but the actual full Ubuntu is not successful booted later.
After some minutes only the cursor is visible on a black screen.
It seems to me that the problem is (as in other Linux Live CDs) that the graphic cpu is not correctly recognized.
For other Linux-CDs I have to pass some additional parameters at startup e.g.
to thell the system to load the vesa drivers.
How do I achieve this for Ubuntu?
Where can I specify alternative VESA graphic/video drivers
Toshiba L755 Blank Screen when installing from LiveUSB
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 1, 2011
So I am trying to install Ubuntu on my new Toshiba Satellite L755D.
THIS is the specific machine :
I have a blank screen when I tried booting from the liveUSB. I tried the noquiet nosplash nomodeset option when booting (by changing the cfg file unetbootin's bootloader uses) now it went upto bringing up a command line interface.
I tried running startx from the CLI and it gave an error that looked something like this:
(EE) Radeon needs .... KMS blah... (dont remember what was exactly here)
(EE) Screen(s) found but none with usable configuration.
If anyone knows a workaround, I would be really grateful. I really cannot function without a linux boot.
Update : with xforcevesa I could get into a GUI, but wireless isn't working. I am off to look for solutions to that, will post back if I find any. If someone already knows how to solve it, do let me know. Thanks!

watchdog module not forcing reboots when loaded from /etc/init.d/watchdog
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 28, 2009
OS: Ubuntu Hardy 8.04.2 amd64
Hardware: Supermicro Intel Server Platform
Install 'watchdog' package on an IPMI-equipped system. Set up /etc/default/watchdog to use the "ipmi_watchdog" module, and /etc/watchdog.conf to use "watchdog-device = /dev/watchdog"
In /etc/modprobe.d you may also need to do the following:
alias char-major-10-130 ipmi_watchdog
options ipmi_watchdog timeout=60 action=reset start_now=1
/etc/init.d/watchdog will load the ipmi_watchdog module. If the /usr/sbin/watchdog process dies (or verifies a failure condition), the system should be reset after 60 seconds.
Note that if I manually modprobe "ipmi_watchdog" without the daemon running, the system will (correctly) reset after 60 seconds. So I know the watchdog timer hardware and the kernel module are functional.
After killing /usr/sbin/watchdog, the system does not reset. Triggering a failur
Samba shares no longer accessible when switching from wired to wireless networking
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 18, 2013
Due to a room relocation I recently switched my Ubuntu box from wired to wireless networking. Up until now all computers/smart phones/raspberry pis etc. on my LAN were able to access 2 Samba shares I setup on my Ubuntu box via the 'Sharing' options in Nautilus. Before I connected my Ubuntu box using the motherboard based ethernet controller. I am now attempting to connect it using a Ralink RT73 based USB wifi dongle. This dongle works pefectly well in Ubuntu for web surfing etc, the only problem is with Samba.
lspci output for ethernet controller:
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 09)
lsusb output for wifi dongle:
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 13b1:0020 Linksys WUSB54GC v1 802.11g Adapter [Ralink RT73]
The Samba shares just do not appear on any of the other devices. Furthermore I cannot see the shares on the 'Browse Network' tab of the Ubuntu box itself. I have seached the whole internet for days
Compilation problem when downgrading from 64bit gcc to 32bit gcc
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 25, 2009
I just checked out a fresh Linux kernel 2.6.30 source code from kernel.org. If I leave everything intact and just do a "make all", it compiled successfully. I saw that it uses standard gcc, ld, ar, nm ... from /usr/bin to compile. Since it's compiled natively on an x86_64 machine (Red Hat), I assume it's 64-bit toolchains. Here is the info I got:
gcc (GCC) 3.4.6 20060404 (Red Hat 3.4.6-9)
Copyright (C) 2006 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
Due to some incompatibility issue, I have to compile this source code in 32-bit. I forced the SUBARCH := i386 in the Makefile then I used the toolchains provided in-house called gcc.c4.2.1-p0.linux, ld.c4.2.1-p0.linux, nm.c4.2.1-p0.linux ... to compile. However, I got these following error:
How can I configure my Linux Mint 16 PC to enable Access from Android Tablet?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 2, 2014
I have an Acer One 722 on which I replaced Windows 7 completely with Linux Mint 16 (it's fabulous and I am enjoying it greatly). I have also installed Samba.
I need to access the Linux PC with a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 - I can see the Linux PC on the network but every time I try to access it I get a message saying it failed.
I'm thinking that there must be a simplified method for me to access the files on the Linux PC with my android tab (at least the media/music/video files...
But I am stumped????? Can anyone please either help or point me in the direction of an easy tutorial.
Thanks in advance
X apps fail when run from cron jobs
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 29, 2004
The app is the java phone emulator and its being run from a *.sh file to run through some automated tests overnight. System is RH FC2 Final.
If I ssh into the server and run the batch I get lots of errors from java relating to not being able to create display contexts. Fair enough, I'm only on a terminal so I'd be suprised if it did work. When I'm actually at the server on KDE if I bring up a terminal, run the same command up pops the GUI window and the app runs fine. However, when the cron fired the same batch overnight I saw in the log the same errors I got when ssh'ing in, IOW it too had no access to X (?). This puzzled me because it was being run locally and X is running permanently.
Has anyone seen this before and got any ideas please? Thanks...
