Thread: Reset to Live CD settings

  1. #1

    Default Reset to Live CD settings

    Hi! I had a machine with 11.3, and tested 11.4 live CD. It looked good, network worked and so did compiz. But then I installed, and I can't see any wireless networks, the screen flickers and compis doesn't work. Is there any way to simple reset all settings so that they become the live-cd settings?

    Have you used the option on the liveCD to check the installation media?

    From the installed system can you show us from a terminal, as su -
    Code:
    lspci -nnk
    Then boot from the liveCD, and the same from a terminal as su - (press <enter> for the password)
    Indicate which is live and which is installed.

    If this is a wireless card on the USB bus, also give us
    Code:
    lsusb
    Some more general info on your hardware would be useful.

    Ah, goody.

    Here's the output from the live CD-settings: lspci liveCD - Pastebin.com

    Here they are for the installed OS: [Bash] lspci HD - Pastebin.com

    (I notice now that the monitor tend to flickr a bit with the live CD as well. And also that in the live CD-version, there is an icon in the taskbar that lets me choose wireless network. This isn't present in the installed OS. )

    System:
    MSI K9AG Neo-2 Digital motherboard
    Amd Athlon 64 x2 Dual core
    Asus VW222 monitor
    RT2800 802.11n PCI wlan-card, subvendor Ralink

    Concerning the video problem,

    From the installed OS
    Code:
    1. 01:05.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 [Radeon X1200 Series] [1002:791e]
    2. Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. K9AG Neo2 [1462:7327]
    3. Kernel driver in use: radeon
    From the liveCD
    Code:
    1. 01:05.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 [Radeon X1200 Series] [1002:791e]
    2. Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. K9AG Neo2 [1462:7327]
    3. Kernel driver in use: radeon
    Identical, so following this guide is the best I can advise openSUSE Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users

    Wireless, installed system
    Code:
    1. 03:02.0 Network controller [0280]: RaLink RT2800 802.11n PCI [1814:0601]
    2. Subsystem: RaLink Device [1814:2860]
    3. Kernel driver in use: rt2860
    Wireless, liveCD
    Code:
    1. 03:02.0 Network controller [0280]: RaLink RT2800 802.11n PCI [1814:0601]
    2. Subsystem: RaLink Device [1814:2860]
    3. Kernel driver in use: rt2860
    Again, identical, so posting in the wireless forum is your way to a resolution.

    The hardware detection system, I have been told is different between the the liveCD and the installer, although I have not been able to find out the differences, and they don't show up here.

    You did not mention, did you check the install media?

    I think the link I gave above is the best place to start.

    And also that in the live CD-version, there is an icon in the taskbar that lets me choose wireless network. This isn't present in the installed OS.
    Which desktop are you using? (KDE, GNOME, or other?)
