Re: Advent 6553 laptop reboots during DVD boot

I must admit I haven't, its a ISO image I downloaded and burnt to a DVD. Would that cause it to abort when loading the GNOME desktop? If its any help, the grey CentOS 7 displays OK, I try pressing ESC key to show the boot process but the screen flashes up complete white and reboots.

Advent 6553 laptop reboots during DVD boot

I was given a Advent 6553 laptop yesterday, trying to install CentOS 7 during the DVD loading the DVD boots. I /think/ it maybe to do with graphics as the reboot occurs when the GNOME GUI is initialised. As usual a test with ubuntu workes fine, has anyone any ideas on how to diagnose, the hardware s...

Skype not starting

Hi there. Retrying after a few weeks but the latest release of Skype isn't starting. Tried the RPM direct from the Skype website and though flatpak, both installing with no errors. Not sure why but it appears to try to start then just gives up, maybe an outdated dependency as Skype on fedora is work...

Re: Qualcomm Atheros AR242x / AR54sx Wireless Network Adaptor

I haven't had much luck with the elrepo. It says the module is in the testing repo. http://elrepo.org/linux/testing/ I cant find it anywhere on there. Assuming I follow, download and install https://elrepo.org/linux/testing/el7/x86_64/RPMS/elrepo-release-7.0-4.el7.elrepo.noarch.rpm Maybe a reboot an...

Skype no longer starting after update.

I have updated skype using the flatpack repo to 8.51.0.72 after a lot of nagging however it wont start. I get skype with the spinning thing for about 5 seconds then it shuts down. Do I need to install additional files?

I get the same issue from the downloaded version from skype.com.

Thanks

Re: Qualcomm Atheros AR242x / AR54sx Wireless Network Adaptor

I'm wondering if a distro upgrade will preserve the driver?

Re: Qualcomm Atheros AR242x / AR54sx Wireless Network Adaptor

Managed to sort it. Installed 6.10, WiFi works a treat. Only other thing I had to do was manually install Flash Plug-in for Firefox. Downloaded he tar.gz file, unpacked and copied the extracted /usr folder to /usr on the hard disk. Then coped the libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins Thank...

According to this:

http://centos.1050465.n5.nabble.com/Cen ... 51884.html

ath5k is enabled in the elrepo kernel-lt. Might be worth a try.
