  1. Thanks for your help on this. I've decided that it I'd probably be just as quick installing a newer version of Linux from scratch. Hopefully all my problems will go away after that and I can install the software I need. Thanks again.
  2. Ok. Here is some output from my server: [root@alpha ~]# uname -r 2.6.12-12mdksmp [root@alpha ~]# urpmq -i kernel-source no package named kernel-source The following packages contain kernel-source: kernel-source-2.6 kernel-source-2.6.12.23mdk kernel-source-2.6.12.24mdk kernel-source-2.6.12.25mdk kernel-source-2.6.12.27mdk kernel-source-2.6.12.29mdk kernel-source-2.6.12.31mdk kernel-source-2.6.17.10mdv kernel-source-2.6.17.11mdv kernel-source-2.6.17.13mdv kernel-source-2.6.17.14mdv kernel-source-2.6.17.15mdv kernel-source-2.6.17.16mdv kernel-source-2.6.17.17mdv kernel-source-2.6.17.5mdv kernel-source-2.6.17.6mdv kernel-source-2.6.17.8mdv kernel-source-stripped-2.6 kernel-source-stripped-2.6.12.23mdk kernel-source-stripped-2.6.12.24mdk kernel-source-stripped-2.6.12.25mdk kernel-source-stripped-2.6.12.27mdk kernel-source-stripped-2.6.12.29mdk kernel-source-stripped-2.6.12.31mdk kernel-source-stripped-2.6.17.10mdv kernel-source-stripped-2.6.17.11mdv kernel-source-stripped-2.6.17.13mdv kernel-source-stripped-2.6.17.14mdv kernel-source-stripped-2.6.17.15mdv kernel-source-stripped-2.6.17.16mdv kernel-source-stripped-2.6.17.17mdv kernel-source-stripped-2.6.17.5mdv kernel-source-stripped-2.6.17.6mdv kernel-source-stripped-2.6.17.8mdv [root@alpha ~]# I think all the kernel-source stuff came from me running EasyURPMI several times. for different versions of Mandriva. At that time, I was unsure which version I was running (I had several install disks at the time). My kernel source (2.6.12-12mdksmp) doesn't show up in that list. What next?
  3. Well, I've downloaded the three Mandriva 2006 CDs to my home directory from ftp://ftp.mirrorservice.org/sites/carroll...so/2006.0/i586/ What do I have to do to get install the sources? Do I have to copy the contents of the CDs to a specific location or is there something I need to run to update the kernel while referencing the CDs? Thanks
  4. Hello, I need some help with finding and installing Linux sources for my server. I am trying to install some software and it fails because of this problem. The Linux version I have is: 2.6.12-12mdksmp I have run the EasyURPMI but the 'sources' still aren't present. I've read through several posts offering other advice using the Linux GUI but unfortunately, I have limited access to the server itself with only regular console access. Some people have recommended upgrading/updating the kernel but I have also read threads that state this is not a good idea because it has made the system unstable due to mismatches. I am still pretty new at Linux and have been strugling with this for quite a while now. Can anyone help with acquiring the software please? Thank you.
  5. Thanks Tyme. I'll give that a shot and let you know how I get on.
  6. Thanks Neddie. I ran that command as you suggested and the output is as follows: [root@alpha /]# rpm -qa | grep kernel kernel-smp-2.6.12.12mdk-1-1mdk [root@alpha /]# What should I expect to see? If you were to run that command, what would your output be?
  7. Tyme, Thanks for the reply. I had a look at the links can confirm all the 'other' dependencies have been satisfied. The ./configure came back with configure: *** Zaptel build successfully configured *** I went through the exercise of finding and updating everything it asked for during the initial failures I encountered. I did the same exercise during the 'make menuselect' phase. It's now just this issue of sources (I'm assuming Mandriva sources) but I don't know what these 'sources' are. Further Internet reading suggests that something should be in here that I'm missing (I think) but I don't know what. [root@alpha zaptel-1.4.8]# ls /lib/modules 2.6.12-12mdksmp/ [root@alpha zaptel-1.4.8]# ls /lib/modules/2.6.12-12mdksmp/ kernel/ modules.dep modules.inputmap modules.seriomap modules.alias modules.description modules.isapnpmap modules.symbols modules.ccwmap modules.ieee1394map modules.pcimap modules.usbmap [root@alpha zaptel-1.4.8]# ls /lib/modules/2.6.12-12mdksmp/kernel/ 3rdparty/ arch/ crypto/ drivers/ fs/ lib/ net/ sound/ [root@alpha zaptel-1.4.8]#
  8. Hi folks. Like so many people on the forum, I'm struggling with Mandriva 2007 and installing software. I'm trying to install some software and get the following: [root@alpha zaptel-1.4.8]# make grep: /include/linux/autoconf.h: No such file or directory grep: /include/linux/autoconf.h: No such file or directory make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/zaptel-1.4.8' gcc -o makefw makefw.c ./makefw tormenta2.rbt tor2fw > tor2fw.h Loaded 69900 bytes from file ./makefw pciradio.rbt radfw > radfw.h Loaded 42096 bytes from file You do not appear to have the sources for the 2.6.12-12mdksmp kernel installed. make[1]: *** [modules] Error 1 make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/zaptel-1.4.8' make: *** [all] Error 2 [root@alpha zaptel-1.4.8]# Before I get flamed, I have done the Google and forum searches and have gone to the EasyURPMI site and followed the instructions. I ran the commands for all the options (main, contrib, plf) but still the same message. Thinking that I might have missed something, I logged in as root and ran the package updater tool and left it running to download 700+ MB worth of stuff. Another reboot and another attempt at installing the software and the same message occurs. Obviously, I'm no Linux guru but how can you tell if I have the sources installed? Thanks for your help.

  9. Hi guys, I've recently installed Mandriva 2006 on my laptop (HP nc6000). I'm new to Linux but am well digging it so far. The problem I've got is a wierd one in that I can't connect to my wireless network at home. I can 'see' the connection and get pretty good signal strength but when I click on connect, I get "Unable to contact daemon". I'm running a pre-shared key setup with 4 other machines in my house that all work fine but the laptop just won't play. Strangely enough though, when I go to my office, I can connect to one of our secured wireless networks no problem. The laptop detects the network, I click on it, enter the pre-shared key and voila, I'm connected. None of this unable to connect nonsense. Nothing changes on the laptop configuration wise between work and home so I don't get it. Any advice, hints, tips? Cheers.
  10. Hello, I've got an HP nc6000 laptop and have just installed Mandriva 2006 on it. Everything works fine except for the wireless connection. I can see the hardware ok and have configured the wireless connection. Everything looks ok but I still can't get it to connect. Iwconfig shows the following: [root@Chazztop ~]# iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. eth1 radio off ESSID:off/any Mode:Managed Channel:0 Access Point: 00:00:00:00:00:00 Bit Rate=0 kb/s Tx-Power=off Retry limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Encryption key:off Power Management:off Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0 Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0 sit0 no wireless extensions. When booting up, the eth1 interface loads successfully but it's as if the hardware is turned off and I can't see any way of activating it. The card itself is an IntelĀ® PRO/Wireless 2200BG and I'm using the ?ipw2200 driver. Any ideas?
  11. Hi all, I've just started using Linux (Mandriva 2006) after a friend recommended I give it a try. I found a couple of old PCs and installed Mandriva 2006 and a couple of Linksys Wireless G cards (WMP54G - Broadcom based). I've got a wireless network in my house that is entirely Linksys based. My wireless router attached to my cable modem is a WRT54G router which has recently had its firmware updated. My Windows PCs use WMP54G PCI cards bought about a year ago so I thought I would buy the same for the Linux boxes. Mandriva went on no problem, detected the wireless cards but that's where the progress stopped. I've tried installing all sorts of drivers using ndiswrapper etc but still get no connection. The wlan0 interface is up but the signal strength is non-existent. When I got the network monitoring application and choose connect wifi, the connection fails. I'm no wireless guru so I'm not sure what the settings need to be. I set the wireless connection to be auto. It defaulted to ad-hoc so I guess everything is ok. I never had to do any major work with the Windows boxes except for set my SSID (I've currently got no security on the network) so I'm not sure what to set on the Linux machines. I don't know what to do next. I don't want to give up because Linux looks quite cool and I want to know more about it but at this rate, I'm spending more time on my Windows box looking for Linux information than doing anything with Linux. Anyway, this is what I've got: ndiswrapper-1.2.3 Wireless card drivers installed on my Linux box: lsbcmnds wmp54gs.sys wmp54gsa.sys The closest I got to the thing working was with lsbcmnds (installed from the CD that came with the card). At one point, I managed to get a wireless connection configured but it kept failing when I attempted to start it. What am I doing wrong? Has anybody got this card to work properly with Mandriva? Any help help would be greatly appreciated. Kind Regards, Charles.
