This issue was solved with update 1.20 of BIOS. Apparently it was a known issue (raised on Lenovo forum) that could occur with some combination of settings, etc.
P. Miller's answer put me in the right track. It is solved now. What I finally did is: To downgrade the libn libraries as suggested. Although it is not necessary, I also downgraded the kernel to the previous version. This had my ethernet port blink again, but I had no connectivity yet. For the ethernet I wrote sudo ifconfig eth0 up sudo dhclient eth0 ...
If your screen is switching off it might be struggling to keep sync with the output signal. There are two main reasons for this , the first is refresh rates being too high for the screen to keep up with and the second is the cables are not good enough. There is an outside chance your graphics card can't cope with multiple screens but most are powerful ...
Using yet another usb stick solved the problem. Seems that it was the type of stick that caused the problem. It now runs very smoothly with only minor problems. Sorry for bothering...
I had the same thing happen to me this morning. I had to go to another network working linux machine and execute these commands to save the pre-upgrade packages to a usb stick: $ wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/libn/libnl3/libnl-3-200_3.2.21-1_amd64.deb $ wget ...
Possible solution, based on similar problem on Dell. Was not tested on real hardware: To get the card working, you have to switch the USB commication mode from MBMI to QMI mode! The ModemManager will apply the FCC-Auth command automatically, but this requires a QMI interface! You can switch the mode by using https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/USB_ModeSwitch or ...
You can change the system-wide keyboard configuration (including TTY), by running: sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration as described in this SO answer. To choose the thinkpadz60 layout shown in @brandizzi's answer, select the "IBM ThinkPad Z60m/Z60t/Z61m/Z61t" layout in the list. It should be above the "Generic PC" layout:
I had the same problem running Ubuntu 16.04 on the same laptop (both with and without the power connected). In desperation I updated the kernel from 4.4 to 4.5.3 (see here and here for instructions) and the problem seems to have gone - both for closing the laptop lid and selecting 'suspend' from the menu.
While chili555's answer is very good, and will remove those nasty errors, you could also try this: sudo systemctl restart network-manager.service If this works, you can create a script to automate it. Open a terminal and type the following: sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/wifi-resume.service Now paste the script in there with a right click. Exit with CTRL ...
Your driver loads the -16 firmware when later firmware files have been released and are available. With a working internet connection, please open a terminal and do: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install git git clone https://github.com/OpenELEC/iwlwifi-firmware.git cd iwlwifi-firmware sudo cp iwlwifi-8000C* /lib/firmware Reboot and tell us if there ...
In your possible relevant issues, you mentioned: The integrated Intel graphics show up as Intel Bay Trail (which I know has had some problems with Linux in the past) Here's my personal experience. I have had a similar issue. It was an NVidia GT820M Card. I always had issue using the proprietary drivers from Nvidia What fixed it for me was using ...
See https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=109051 The following eliminated the problem for me. Edit /etc/default/grub. Change the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="intel_idle.max_cstate=1 quiet splash" then do sudo update-grub and reboot.
I was experiencing the same problem on an ASUS N56JN (also Intel chipset). This worked for me: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/debian-ubuntu-building-installing-a-custom-linux-kernel/ It basically explains how update the kernel to the latest version, goes step by step on how to download, compile and install the latest version of the Linux kernel (4.5).
I have an x1 carbon 4th gen which has the same fingerprint reader. I looked through the upstram libfprint source, and it doesn't look supported yet, so that's why it's not working. You will likely have to wait till someone creates a driver for it.
Try installing newer kernels. In some cases, it fixes the problem of freezing that caused by bad high precision timer code. This is binary for Linux 4.5.2: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.5.2-wily/ Download appropriate 3 .deb binary packages, install them, and reboot to the new kernel. I hope this will fix your problm. By the way, Ubuntu ...
