And it never will as long as Don keeps coming with things 'found on the
internet', like 'a patch in /sys' ( which is regenerated at boot ),
providing links we can check. As long as he doesn't provide proper info,
everything is just shooting in the dark, and this gets even worse since
not know what's being done and undone.

I am often criticized for making my posts too long, by people that are
evidently charged by message length. This thread now contains 94 messages,
some not really related to the problem that I am trying to solve.

The link you referenced offering a solution to the E2500 card problem, was
offers on Ubuntu forums,
<>. And as you
suggested, the commands have to be applied on each reboot. I do not know
where it comes from, just that it works. And I am often told that I am
lazy and should search Google for solutions.

If this hack works for you, it is possible to apply them on every boot

In the directory "/etc/init.d" create one of these scripts, or edit if it


Runs after runlevel is complete. Right, I know "runlevels" do not exist
with systemd. Fine, "target".

Carlos, don't you agree this is bringing Don further and further away from a
default install? With the knowledge displayed so far, IMNSHO that's maybe
working around some issues, but not really solving his issues.


This one runs at the very first possible, before evaluating targets, I
believe. I verified it does run in 42.3.


Not in your case.

Or, create a systemd service in /etc/systemd/system.

How early do you want it to run?

There have been many problems with this Alienware a13 3 computer, so I am
going in multiple directions at once. I do not know why the leap 42.3
installation DVD works fine, but the Leap 15 stalls examining USB devices.
This DVD worked fine on my other Alienware computers, so I do not believe
it is faulty.

Nevertheless, test it, because they can degrade. On boot, select the
option to verify instead of installation.

You should report this issue in Bugzilla.

There was no firmware support for the Qualcomm Atheros QCA6174 wlan
adapter, so I replaced the hardware with an Intel 8260 IEEE 802.11ac -
Wi-Fi Adapter. The Qualcomm Atheros Killer E2500 Gigabit Ethernet
Controller does not work and the message you referenced was my temporary

I an currently concerned about the nouveau support for the NVIDIA GP106M
[GeForce GTX 1060 Mobile]. I see the driver nouveau listed in the brief
crash dumps left on my screen. I miss the option of writing the complete
boot output to the printer port, if any existed.

Crumbs. Does it have Nvidia AND Intel video? They are problematic. Daniel
Bauer also has deep problems with his.

It is possible to dump kernel log entries via network, if the network card
is working. I think there is another procedure to dump via usb.

Maybe devs could develop a method to dump boot messages to a raw disk
partition. No filesystem support needed. Dangerous if the wrong partition
is chosen.
