Linux Lite Kernel

<< < (2/65) > >>


Firstly, have just reread Valtam's  initial post above. i.e. objective = better support for new hardware.  Most of the machines I am likely to encounter are older i.e should work on current LL2.0 ?  Therefore no need for updated kernel testing on these?  Is that so?

If not, then

 Re your options - and as a newbie to linux, possibly one or two steps too far for me,  for now. and as the test machines are not mine, not practical.

My idea to was try out the new Kernel on a number of my neighbours' machines, mainly running Windows, possibly XP OS. i.e boot up a "beta" Live CD and see if it runs smoothly, and note  the make, model, system log, video card etc.  i.e minimum of messing about and get as broad a range as possible - all silver surfers and  "older" machines I think.

My collection  (3) of old cast off laptops are running LL 1.08 or 2.0 without problems.

However my daughter's  HP G60 (sssslow on Vista) laptop with GeForce 8200m Video card was temperamental with LL2.0 Live CD so dared not dual boot. There were always problems rebooting from the live LL.2.0 CD back to windows Vista.  Vista wanted system check routine each time.   This may have been because the closing of the Live CD never completely shutoff the laptop, seemed to hang after ejection of the CD stage leaving the "feather" screen. 

My HP DC7700 USDT  (Intel Q 965  Express Chipset)  desktop had problems with monitor oscillation  with LL2.0 full installation, so currently forced to run Linux Mint Maya (reluctantly)- saga reported previously. 

Therefore keen to get the latter two "problems" solved.

Just lost a long post I wrote due to "Internal Server Error" -- not the first time this has happened and very annoyed.  (Not at you newtusmaximus.  Just needed to vent a little frustration.)

Sorry, don't feel like typing out everything over again, so just reducing to bullet points.

* Don't bother trying to experiment with new kernels.  I have a 10-yr old Athlon XP 2600 with old Nvdia graphics.  Will test new kernels on it when I get the time an let you know if I notice improvement.
* RE:  Daughter's HP
* Graphics problem likely caused because it needs proprietary Nvidia driver to run properly.
* Live DVD only uses generic driver.
* LL 2.0 will likely run graphics fine once Nvidia driver is installed (easy to do).
* If not comfortable installing before knowing for sure that solves problem, you can do a test installation to a USB stick that is 8GB or larger.
* If you want to do that, let us know.  We'll give you instructions for doing that.
* RE:  Shutdown problem
* Once live DVD is ejected and see Feather on screen, hit the <Enter> key to shutdown computer.
* If that does not work:
* Simultaneously hold down these three keys:  <Ctrl> + <Alt> + <SysRq>  (same as <PrtScn> key)
* While holding those down, SLOWLY type r   e   i   s   u   b  (allow 1-2 seconds b/w each letter typed)
* RE:  HP DC7700 -- not sure what to do about that.  Try using this search engine for possible solutions:  Linux Beginner Search Engine.

Hi, i install the LINUXLITE 3.15 kernel en what a surprise. My pc  get  more memory than the normal 3.15 kernel. 1004,6 ipv 1003,2.

Question : is there a site where the linuxlite kernel stand. I was looking but can't find him.

For this to be a success, I need your help.
We need people with the following graphics cards: ATI, Intel and nVidia.

Thank you :)

Hi there,
I've installed the 3.15 kernel on my ASUS laptop, NVIDIA GEFORCE 740M, using the NVIDIA driver ver# 331.38.
No problems at all so far. All applications are working  normally, YouTube Mozart concert, VLC playing DVD movie, Xscreensaver running GL-extras. NVIDIA X-Server settings are all functional, as are e-mail, browsing, Office writer, etc...
I have all my data on an external HDD (SATA to USB3 connector box), as the OS is resident on internal SSD. If the kernel breaks, I can either remove it via the terminal, or simply reinstall LL. It doesn't take very long, and I have my edited FSTAB (for ssd optimization) on the HDD.
Hope this helps.. Is there anything in particular that you would like me to try ??? I am retired, and do have "some" spare time on my hands..although, right now, there are two German Shepherds looking alternately intently at me, and at the front door !!!
Oh, Happy Canada Day to us Canucks, and to everyone else....
