      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

  2. Which wifi card do you use? [solved]

    Worked a treat using ndiswrapper, Thanks.
  3. Which wifi card do you use? [solved]

    Thanks for your reply, I've bought one, I'll report back when I've tried it.
  4. Which wifi card do you use? [solved]

    I'm trying to set up a webcam server for my Father. He runs his PCs through a BT Voyager 2100 wireless access point. His other PCs run XP but I don't need to network to them. The server is running LE2005 and I have tried using his SIS162 USB dongle to connect but despite hours of Googling and reading and trying everything I can think of, I have given up and want to try a PCI card. So if any of you out there have used a card successfully with the Voyager I would welcome your recommendations. TIA Richard.
  5. Face merge with the gimp

    Have you tried Blender? Sorry just tried it myself, if theres a way to do what you want, I cant see it, however xmorph does look like what you want.
  6. Browsing certain websites

    A possible answer to your problem may be:- http://lwn.net/Articles/92727/ It solved it for me.
  7. Strange : can only get Google when connected

    I just added the line and then restarted the network. It's worked for me on all 2.6.8 kernels I tried from cooker and did the trick just fine on Gentoo which is what I'm using now. All I could get before was Google and my bank's site. "net.ip_dynaddr=..." is hashed out on this setup I've got a USR 9003 modem/router. Hope you get it sorted.
  8. Strange : can only get Google when connected

    There seems to be a problem with the new kernels and some routers. Try adding net.ipv4.tcp_default_win_scale=0 to /etc/sysctl.conf Did the trick for me.
  9. Which WM/DE do you use?

    KDE I'd tried linux a few times but not got on with it, then I found KDE and was hooked, haven't used any other desktop since. been with linux now for about 4 years and totally MS free for the last 2.5 years.

  11. Tip for TV card installation

    I don't know if it will help but if you are in the UK you may find that putting options tuner pal=i in /etc/modprobe.conf will help.
  12. Does this exist

    Assuming you mean audio files you might want to take a look at a little prog called GramoFile. http://panic.et.tudelft.nl/~costar/gramofile/ It's aimed at people copying vinyl LPs onto CD but may do what you require.
  13. registering a web page

    Yes it saves all the pictures but I find the links will not work.
  14. registering a web page

    In Konq go tools-archive web page. Will save as .war file don't know if you can view it with anything else other than konq though.
  15. Mandrake and broadband

    Not an answer to your question, but I wish I could get broadband here, all these ads on TV really p**s me off. I'm only 20 miles from the BT research labs but even they are only on the fringe for broadband if you check the postcode (IP5 3RE). :(
