Postby khz » Fri Aug 10, 2012 2:01 pm

Linux is talkative. No panik!

>> The kernel contains the drivers. Current kernel == current/additional driver. <<

A) # You have installed the unfree drivers (AMD/Nvidia( && RT~?)/WIFI/...) and the Processor microcode? If not then install as needed.
If "dmesg" something indicates, then install the missing packages.

Code: Select all

Yours@LAW/DAW ~ $ dmesg | grep failed


B) Console: Use the tab key - press 2 times in a row - to complete the path or program name.
Help:

Code: Select all

Yours@LAW/DAW ~ $ man program_name
Yours@LAW/DAW ~ $ program_name --help


C) If there are problems, start the appropriate $program from the console.
Read error messages.

Code: Select all

Yours@LAW/DAW ~ $ program_name
