Apple PPC G3 White Screen w/ firmware?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 15, 2006
I just aquired a Ubuntu dapper PPC disk, which i want to use on my imac. The problem is, when i boot up, after i press enter, a white screen comes up showing Apple Firmware, at the top of screen it also says "Cant allocate inital device-tree chunk". I find this odd becuase my live Debian and my live Xubuntu cds work (with the exception of X working, X dosnt want to run on either distro on that computer). Please help asap, thanks.

Broadcom BCM4312 firmware in Ubuntu 10.10 Beta
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 26, 2010
I recently switched from 10.04.1 Ubuntu that I had for only about a week, to Ubuntu 10.10 Beta. I switched because I heard that 10.10 comes with firmware right out of the box for BCM4312. I am new with Linux, and Ubuntu, but I do know what some of the commands do and etc. I got 10.10 installed, but the wireless options say "Not connected|Firmware Missing" What do I need to activate the firmware, or install it?
Wireless network: "device not ready (firmware missing)"

I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my laptop. For some reason Wireless Network does not work any more (there was installed 9.04 before).
00:06.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Texas Instruments TSB43AB22/A IEEE-1394a-2000 Controller (PHY/Link)
System->Administration->Additional Drivers doesn't list anything.
Can anybody help me? Thanks for any suggestions,
How do I find, load, use bcm4312 wireless card firmware?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 24, 2011
Welcome to me. My first post. While old among the old, I am the newest of the new. Oh I do like this text screen. Others are not as user friendly.
I am a grandfather. First time I have referred to myself that way. Retired teacher - chemistry. Loaded Mint12, Lisa three days ago. Three days of stress and agony. Not my first Linux. Used Presto for a year - a Xandros Linux. Not well supported, but it worked VERY well.
Things have not gone that way with Lisa. Immediately I ran into trouble... wireless ... firmware missing. I wiped out Windows Vista (hateful OS) and loaded Mint12. Lucky enough to have the Broadcom wireless card that seems to have given a lot of new Lunux users trouble. I have found that I have the BCM4312. Have read a lot amid cursing. I find that where I lack expertise I make up for it with cursing. I am afraid to the statements I have found....
sudo apt-get install firmware-B43-installer
or any other statements. I am wary (at best) of using the t
iphone firmware 2.x support now in ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 19, 2009
EDIT: This method only works through WiFi.
This post is purely for anyone out there like me, who has had such a headache trying to find a work around for ubuntu's (or should i say apple's) lack of support for the iphone with the newest firmware 2.x (that being 2.1 or 2.2) in linux.
I found this post particularly useful in figuring out a proper work around for it.
Basicly, changing a 4 to a 2 in /System/Library/Lockdown/Checkpoint.xml (you'll have to shh into the iphone in order to get it)
and copying the file onto your desktop, change the value under DBVersion then replacing the old Checkpoint.xml with the new one (MAKE SURE TO DO A BACKUP FIRST) will allow you to sync with amarok or any other iphone supported media player.
Hope this helps someone in need
Mounting Jailbroken iPod Touch 2G w/ 3.0 firmware
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 7, 2009
is this possible? I have been reading ways to make gtkpod work similarly to itunes, but either I am a complete noob (which is true) or my ipod doesn't seem to work with the apps I'm using. I Jailbroke the ipod with the 3.0 upgrade in Windows and it is working great. I have no experience with using the jailbreak features and very little knowledge of Linux. This is the tutorial I am using now:
I get the program installed and open it, then hit Load iPod(s) and nothing happens. Can anyone tell me how to make my iPod Touch work with Linux (Ubuntu 9.04)?
HDpvr terrible resolution (even with firmware and driver update)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 3, 2012
This may turn into a pretty long post trying to explain the problem I am up against.
The short version:
My new HD-PVR (ver f2) has bad resolution. With 720p component input cat/dev/videoX looks like this:
I get the same picture quality regardless of the input signal resolution (yes, the picture size changes, but the picture quality is always like the pic above)
Tried newest drivers and firmware, and all the v4l2-ctl commands I could find. On it's own usb bus, and very solid. No matter what resolution I throw at it, it looks like the above pic.
The long version:
I have a fresh 12.04 64bit 3.2.0-24-generic install. (When I started, I was on a 11.10 64 bit system and had the exact same problem)
An old pvr-350 analog tuner died, so I did a little research and decided on a HD-PVR to replace it. I am in Japan, so I am limited in my choices of input devices. I am recording the component out of
"LinuxWiMAX" firmware Installation Problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 17, 2011
I'm a new member of ubuntu forums (as well as linux). Earlier this year, I switched from windows to Ubuntu 10.10. But I'm not getting along with it as well as I expected I would Specially cause I'm not getting the best out of it due to limited web connectivity. I used to use a usb WiMax modem back in windows (which is also supposed to be supported by linux as my service provider said) for internet. But I'm having a hard time configuring it on my Ubuntu. The modem works fine but I'm failing to install the drivers (From http://www.linuxwimax.org). I used my cell as a temporary modem to get help from the web.
i2400m firmware 1.5.0
WiMAX Tools 1.4.5
WiMAX Network Service 1.5.2
According to the documentation, I'm supposed to install the linux kernel 2.6.35 which Maverick comes with anyway.
Then comes the part to install the firmware. The command I used was
sudo install -o root -g root -m -644 i2400m
[SOLVED] ATI Radeon HD 3450 firmware issue on OpenSuSE 13.1

I've installed OpenSuSE 13.1 on a system with an ATI Radeon HD 3450 card. I'd really like to have the 3D acceleration enabled, however, for some reason I cannot get it to work. The output of dmesg tells me there's something wrong when loading the firmware for the card:
