#1 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » Suspend functionality not working » 2022-05-24 15:12:27

I'd like to add my experience.

Since I've upgraded to chimera 4.0 from belwulf 3.0, i have noticed Suspend feature failed as well.  i have devuan installed on HP desktop with NVidia 9300GT card, i used to be able to put machine into suspend overnight and woke it up next time i use, but now the feature isn't working at all.  in the weekend, i tried 'hybrid sleep' option that presented on the power/logoff menu to put it in sleep, and it woke up yesterday ok.
Will continue to see how this goes

hi,

My pc is connected through wifi, whenever I rebooted my machine, it's not automatically connected to wifi, I had to run the following to be able to connect.

root@htpc-devuan:~# /etc/init.d/networking restart

my network setting is as follows:
erdos@htpc-devuan:~/Documents$ pico /etc/network/interfaces

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

# my wifi device
allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
        wpa-ssid ssidname
        wpa-psk password



any advice?

i was able to run dhclient after su - ,  is 'dhclient' supposed to run in root only?

hi,

whenever i tried to run dhclient , i got error saying command not found.  however, 'dhclient' does exist in /sbin directory,  it looks that /sbin is not in my path.
erdos@htpc-devuan:~/Documents$ $PATH
bash: /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/games:/usr/games: No such file or directory




how do i add /sbin to my PATH?

hey guys

I've an existing SSD with devuan 4 installed.  and i just purchased another SSD and would like to clone my existing devuan 4 os and /home partition.  is there an easy way to achieve this?

You should be able to install that package from ceres by temporarily adding the ceres sources.list line

  1. Add the line to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

    deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged ceres main contrib non-free
  2. Install the package and its dependencies an your system:

    # apt-get update
    # apt-get install -t ceres ....

    Obviously you should then refrain from installing anything more, but afaict your nvidia-legacy-340xx package should be safe to install in this way.

  3. Restore sources.list by removing or commenting out that line, and then again run:

    # apt-get update

    Or, you may configure "pinning" for ceres so as to follow upgrades to only that package, without getting other things.


thank you!  that's it!  I've installed 'nvidia-legacy-340xx-driver' by following the instructions. 

I received some error regarding 'nvidia-persisenced', but that's probably expected

thanks for the reply!

Chimaera backports doesn't include 'nvidia-legacy-340xx-driver' either, it seems that kernel 5.10 update that comes with chimaera doesn't support 340xx driver anymore.  I wish i knew this before the 4.0 upgrade. 

I still had the 340xx driver installed after 4.0 upgrade but couldn't install 5.10 kernel and headers.  in the process of getting 5.10 kernel installed, 340xx driver was deleted and no longer in the repo.

I have a HP desktop equipped a GeForce 9300 GE card.  and I use it as HTPC connected to my 4K tv running Devuan 3, but upgrading to Devuan 4 over the weekend has broke the nvidia driver support since newer kernel (5.10) doesn't support 340xx driver for my card anymore. Nouveau driver only supports resolution up to 1280x1024. 

I look around and  it seems that Ceres still have 'nvidia-legacy-340xx' available.   it seems that in order to use nvidia driver, the path forward is to use 'Ceres' instead of Chamera.  so the question is:  is Ceres stable enough to use?

linux-image-amd64 is a "Task" package, enables updates for your amd64 kernel.

What you do need is Guile, dkms, linux-headers and linux-headers-common to suit your kernel version, linux-image-5.10.0-9-amd64 (5.10.70-1) installed to get your nvidia drivers/modules installed and running.

thanks for the reply!
I try to install 'Guile-3.0', but it seems to indicating that linux-image-5.10.0-9-amd64 isn't properly installed/configured.  i can boot into 4.19 kernel for now but 'apt-get dist-upgrade' results the same error.   trying to remove 'nvidia-persistenced' package also results the same error.

not long at all smile

wow, i'm honestly amazed by the speed of new release, trailing debian 10 only by 2 months.

thanks for the hardwork by developers!

hi

i installed 'VNC viewer' onto ipad to access my devuan htpc with Beowulf x64 installed.  'tightVNC' is running on the devuan machine, but trying to access it from 'VNC viewer' results port error,  both devuan and ipad are located on the same home wifi network.

any suggestion?

also keep my eye out for devuan ver 4,  hopefully it won't take as long as beowulf after debian 10's release ~ 1 year

#24 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » how to keep desktop resolution on htpc? » 2021-02-25 20:58:47

I'm still looking for a solution.

both HTPC and TV are set to 60HZ refresh rate, but HTPC automatically sets to 4k after some period of idle time.
