  1. Thanks for the links, bvc. My need was only for this set of icons that I found quite cute (GANT), I had used as .ico files with rox and gdesklets, but I'm editing some enlightenment theme files in order to put icons on the desktop and it needs to be .png intead .ico. That's all.
  2. Before posting I had spent almost 1 hour trying to convert it in windows and its shareware applications, but without success. bvc, gthumb was here in front of me I converted a batch of 330 icons at once. Steve, I'll keep your script for a future use. Thank you alll, guys.
  3. Does anybody know a linux based application that converts .ico files into jpeg, png, bmp, etc. I downloaded a set of icons which the files are .ico and would like to use under linux. Thanks.
  4. I can assure it will work, I followed all the steps in the tutorial and I got it working under MKD 10 with kernel
  5. Why are you trying to install yum? It's a package manager that comes with Fedora Core, isn't it? Not sure if you will succeed in getting it working properly under MDK. Use urpmi instead, it's easier.
  6. If I'm not wrong Xine comes with MDK 10CE. Check in mcc software intallation, it should be there.
  7. Thanks, bvc, but when you posted I had already deleted windows partition, but thanks God the overlapping issue has gone. I'm already with a booting cd to regenerate lilo after windoze reinstall. Anyway, thanks. william
  8. Yes MB, actually that link leads you to a post which title is "MDK 10 Official is out" with at least 3 pages of valuable discussion and indeed, with some links and tips to update the system. But, you can have a look at easy urpmi and follow the steps you will find there. Do no forget that you must be root to run "urpmi" command. Good luck.
  9. Yeah, GB, thanks. Here go some outputs: [root@poseidon william]# fdisk -l /dev/hda Disk /dev/hda: 40.0 GB, 40020664320 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4865 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/hda1 * 1 2434 19550128+ 7 HPFS/NTFS Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary. /dev/hda3 3709 3771 506047+ 82 Linux swap /dev/hda4 2434 4865 19534567+ f W95 Ext'd (LBA) Partition 4 does not end on cylinder boundary. /dev/hda5 2434 3708 10241406 83 Linux /dev/hda6 3772 4865 8787523+ 83 Linux Partition table entries are not in disk order It seems to be quite strange, cause there isn't any hda4 partition visible in DiskDrake.
  10. I was yesterday having a look at this post when I decided to gain some space to give to my linux installation (for digital video capturing purposes) and instead of disabling system restore I downloaded a demo version of partition magic to do the job, installed and started using but at certain point (almost at the end of the entire resizing process) it was not possible due to license issues. (what ingenuous I was!!) I considered the fact of getting rid of windows, but I started thinking on my wife and gave up. Today, I purchased an external 80 Mg HD (properly recognised by harddrake) and everything was going without a problem, till I started to make my new wireless optical mouse to work, I was there in MCC and just checking mouting points, whatever, when I saw a message saying that "PARTITION SECTOR #63 (Windoze) and sector # 39086208 (linux /) are overlapping . After some google search, I came here to this post and tried what bvc suggested with "parted", my goodness!! It seems to be quite complicated, even doing parted --help!?!? bvc's link is broken. There aren't many threads on partition overlapping, so I would like to count (again) on your help to solve this issue, considering that: 1 ) I wouldn't like to loose my linux installation (the 2nd sector is where the heart of mandrake is located), if formating it is an option; 2 ) Delete windows and reinstalling it, would be a possibility, but how to be sure that the new installation would get the correct space without leaving any "hole" between windows and linux? 3 ) I'm open to any sort of suggestion that would keep my HD clean, without any "hole". Currently, my partitions are in this order: hda1>hda5>hda3>hda6, respectively:windoze>linux / >linux swap >linux /home Thank you all friends.
  11. problem already solved arthurking, there's another thread of mine, in which aRTee suggested to symlink the /dev/dsp (OSS) to /dev/s*nd , the place where alsa stuffs are. It really worked for kino and UT2004.
  12. My Goodness!!!! aRTee!!!!! It has worked, I was not confident it'd work!! Thanks and congratulations man, I've been limiting my linux experience (with some quality) for almost one year!!! Thanks again. Now I can play UT2004 and use KINO with sound, that's great.
  13. Yeah, possibly. I will try the symlink trick when I get home. Thanks aRTee.
  14. Have you tried gtkam, it works quite well with my Sony digicam and if I'm not wrong it comes with MDK 10's cds. It sounds strange, which USB devices you have that MKD 10 doesn't recognize?
  15. One year has gone since I've started using linux on a laptop and nowadays with a desktop I'm still facing and fighting in order to make my external (USB) Extigy Sound Blaster to work in a stable way, actually up till now I'm not able to understand quite well the hardware issues in linux, as a mature newbie, I think I have to be a little more focused on it, in order to avoid this sort of thread that we can see at least hundreds of them. (no sound, sound problem, aumix not working, sndconfig doesn't detect my..., bla bla bla...). When I said that my external soudcard doesn't work in a stable way, I meant that with some applications it works while with some others apps it doesn't, so I shoud have something working wrongly here. I've already tried exaudio and alsa, but with the same sort of result and not being confident of what I was doing, so that's the reason for posting this thread. In order to give you a better idea of my problem, here go some information and outputs: 1 ) Applications that the sound seems to work properly:(at least I have sound with some good quality, despite of maybe not being optimizing all the soundcard's resources) a ) Mplayer - using alsa plugin b ) XMMS - using alsa plugin c ) Tux Racer - maybe using alsa - don't know how to check that 2 ) Applications that the sound doesn't work at all: a ) Totem b ) xine - open /dev/dsp/: no such file or directory c ) UT2004 - my new acquisition - open /dev/dsp/: no such file or directory d ) kino - open /dev/dsp/: no such file or directory 3 ) System outputs: 3.1) Part of proc/pci output. Notice that despite of disabling my on board soundcard in the BIOS it's still being recognised a ) [root@poseidon william]# cat /proc/pci Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp. 82801DB AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 1).

USB view detects the extigy and so does harddrake. With alsa service running or not on boot it doesn't affect the functionality of the softwares I mentioned above (both of them are using alsa plugin). Well, sorry for being too long in my post and I hope to receive some inputs from you. Actually, this in my second post on this issue, the first one was one year ago, when I was able to make it to work, but without understanding anything I was doing here (I still don't understand). See you friends.
  16. Just to share with you ... I got the 6 games' CDs and installed normally, without any sort of problem, but have no sound... I'm using alsa driver with an external USB extigy sound blaster that works quite well with tux and xmms. When I had ET installed the sound was not here at all either, should I start a new thread in the hardware section?
  17. Well, after purchasing a pci 1394 card and inserting the appropriate modules (ohci 1394 and raw 1394), kino is working like a charm, except the audio that I can hear only from the camera. Considering that I have to use the alsa drivers to make my usb extigy sound blaster working, I think I'll have some problems to figure out how to make sound work with kino. But anyway, thanks guys, at least it's not necessary to boot my computer to capture and edit the movies of my son with windows anymore. Thanks for all the inputs and a special thanks to Leo, I've saved a lot of money opting for a pci.
  18. thanks sitor, certainly it will be useful.
  19. Yes arthurking, indeed. But anyway, I'll go for a pinacle card in order to make capturing working here. According to what I read I won't succeed in getting it to work with USB interface, even being 2.0 (the one I have here).
  20. thanks Leo, I will check this pci card. As soon as I get it, I'll let you know.
  21. type "uname -r"(as root) in terminal in order to check your kernel version, you will have to install a kernel-source that matches your kernel version. (you can use the software management tool in mandrake control center to search and install the source) [root@poseidon william]# uname -r 2.6.3-7mdk Here is my output showing that kernel and kernel-souce has the same version. root@poseidon william]# rpm -qa | grep kernel kernel- kernel-source-stripped-2.6.3-7mdk Good luck.
  22. This is not a double post anymore. edited to add this:Linux USB. My camcorder is not listed in the working device list for USB support. So I will have to go for ieee1394 interface. I will see how it works, what kind of cable or card I will have to buy. Anyway, thanks to all for the inputs.
  23. It has ieee1394 support, but is there a way to get the camcorder working with USB interface intead ieee1394? edited: sorry for the double post
  24. I connect tha camcorder through a USB cable. I'm not sure if there's a I-Link interface, I'll have to check that, despite of not feeling like spending money with cables and whatever. If a USB connection is possible it'd be great!!!
