Since Ubuntu 10.04 rsyslog is used instead of plain syslog and it does have filtering capabilities. Proceed as follows: Create gksudo gedit /etc/rsyslog.d/01-blocklist.conf Add the following lines there :msg,contains,"Card not present on Slot(0-2)" ~ :msg,contains,"Card present on Slot(0-2)" ~ Reboot or service rsyslog restart The solution ...

It appears that there is an IRQ conflict. Both cards are set to the same "channel", and thus are conflicting. You must find a jumper or dip switch setting for IRQ and set it to something that no other device in your computer uses. You need not worry about plug-and-play devices as they will auto-resolve their conflict. As to changing the IRQ settings, this ...

Quad monitors is unfortunately always a tricky proposition and will almost certainly require a bit of fettling with the xorg.conf file. I had it all working fine under 11.04 but after upgrading to 11.10 things went down hill. There is a description of the problems I had here : Upgrade To 11.10 - Issue With Quad Monitors I am using two different ATI cards ...

I am not sure this first option works, but since it's much easier than the second (which works for sure) please try. Option 1 Edit /etc/default/grub , append pciehp.pciehp_poll_time=10000 to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line. Option 2 Rebuild the kernel without CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_PCIE, for instructions check the last comment on this forum: ...

Ok, i've add "pcie_aspm=force" and i've gained 20 minutes :) So if someone have a Sony Vaio VPC-EH1S0E can easily add the parameter to the grub line in this way: sudo nano -w /etc/default/grub and where there is this line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" change it into: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pcie_aspm=force" You can also ...

For what i know the only one brand that produce that kind of VGA is Matrox http://www.matrox.com/en/ the main difference is that their products are simply focused on CAD and multi-monitor support from years to now, but this is a really professional solution. Regarding the consumer market ATI has a better support than Nvidia to multi monitor with it's own ...

I tried this: cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep "NVIDIA" It will show you the cards and in what PCI Express slot they are and what is the width of that Slot. For example: 20.502] (II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU GeForce 9500 GT (G96) at PCI:1:0:0 (GPU-0) [ 20.502] (--) NVIDIA(0): Memory: 1048576 kBytes [ 20.502] (--) NVIDIA(0): VideoBIOS: 62.94.1f.00.8a [ ...

I don't have any personal experience, but this should get you going in the right direction: Intel Gbit NICs. They are controlled with the e1000e module. It supports the Intel PCIe adapters.

I have the same problem with the DV6Z-7200 (the AMD APU / AMD discrete Video version). Modding the Insyde BIOS is not an option - as it's UEFI, it comes encrypted and cannot be opened by the ezH20 Insyde BIOS Editor. I contacted HP Tech Support & put in a request for the BIOS department to add an option to enable the Wireless card (Linux) or disable it ...

While this is off topic… PCI Express … is a bus interface for very high throughput, very low latency communication between internal and more recently peripheral computer hardware components. Ethernet … is a physical network interface for high throughput, low latency communication between computers in a local area network. It is not restricted to ...

PCIe is used to communicate with your local network card. The actual network card uses the ethernet protocol to communicate with external network devices. These protocols can also be used within the OS to emulate such devices as well. Here is an extremely basic graphical depiction that I put together for you: Additionally, please note that ethernet is ...

I had the same issue with my USB 3.0 card which uses Nec/Renesis controller. My card has two ports and when I connected storage enclosure (WD) to one port I had problems with recognizing it. What I found - I had to plug some other device into the second port to make the first port work. Apparently kernel driver for Nec chips cannot selectively ...
