HP Omnibook 6100, no success :(

Postby faktor on Thu Nov 29, 2007 4:06 pm

Hi all,

First i must say that Mint is one of the best distros i have tried. It suites me as half noob very well. It's a great distro with other words.

But i also have a slight problem when i try to install Linux Mint gnome/kde on my laptop (HP Omnibook 6100). Some time it will shut down when i try to start live. Other time it will suddenly shut down when i install the components between 60% to 90%.
And it's the same with Ubuntu so i don't think that it's some mint specific.

Have anyone any idea what i can do about it? If it's possible at all to install mint on my laptop?
When i install windows it works perfect, but with mint/ubuntu it always shut down in the install process.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi

".......I have a HP Omnibook 6100 and the following problem with Gutsy

- I can only start the GNOME desktop in recovery mode
- My notebook often turns off during boot process (since Kernel 2.6.20).

I found a solution for the last problem in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s....20/+bug/89892
Rename the file "intel-rng.ko" in "intel-rng.ko.off". This makes the file invisible to the boot process
The file is in lib/modules/2.6.22-9-generic/2.6.22-9-generic/kernel/drivers/char/hw_random/

This is not solved yet in Kernel 2.6.22 !........"

Thank's for the reply.

I have looked in the ISO-file of mint but i can't find "intel-rng.ko". In what directory can i find it there?

Hi

You cannot change it on ISO, if you can find a way of installing it you can. There seems to be a problem with some
HP notebooks, best read all the way through this forum, there are
several parameters suggested to change at boot.

Problems with Gutsy on HP laptops.

Make sure CD is OK as suggested in this forum

Anybody?

Thank's for the answers.
I have installed PCLinuxOS right now and it was no problem at all.
I will try some of the sugestions to see if it's possible to install my favorite dist (LinuxMint).
