      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

  1. Internal card reader doesn't work

    Added tifm_sd to modprobe.preload and now it's working. Learned it from http://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=25133. Unfortunately, according to http://openfacts.berlios.de/index-en.phtml...x12/xx21_driver, it doesn't support Memory Stick and xD/SmartMedia cards at the moment. Hopefully, some time soon the updates will come out.
  2. Internal card reader doesn't work

    It actually doesn't work. Here are the contents of my /etc/modprobe.preload: yenta_socket tifm_7xx1 mmc_core mmc_block sdhci The device can be detected but when I try to insert a card, it doesn't get recognized, there's no pop-up window.
  3. Internal card reader doesn't work

    I tried everything written in the link above. But still it doesn't work. I also tried running the patch but it hangs.
  4. Internal card reader doesn't work

    I have an internal card reader on my laptop with the model specified above. When I open harddrake it is able to detect the device but when I try to insert a card nothing happens. I also tried to browse to /media but it can't find the device there. Does anyone know how to fix this?
  5. Installing Java plugin on Firefox

    How come I can't find any package when I try to execute the following: urpmi java-1.6.0 I also tried urpmi java-sun but to no avail.
  6. I am using Mandriva 2007.1 Spring with pre-installed Mozilla Firefox Unfortunately, firefox doesn't have the java plugin (or any other plugins) pre-installed. So here's how to do it: 1) Download the Java Installer from the sun website and copy it to /usr/java (You might need to create the directory if it is missing). 2) Perform the following # chmod a+x jre-6u1-linux-i586-rpm.bin 3) Next # ./jre-6u1-linux-i586-rpm.bin 4) Next go to the mozilla plugin directory # cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ 5) Run the following # ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so 6) Now go to the firefox plugin directory # cd /usr/lib/firefox- 6) Run the same command as in step 5 # ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so 7) Open your firefox browser, or restart the browser if it is already opened. 8) Then go to Edit > Preferences. Under Content category > Select Enable Java. 9) To make sure that the plugin is installed, type about:plugins in your browser and press Enter. You should see something like below: application/x-java-vm Java Yes application/x-java-applet Java Yes application/x-java-applet;version=1.1 Java Yes application/x-java-applet;version=1.1.1 Java Yes application/x-java-applet;version=1.1.2 Java Yes application/x-java-applet;version=1.1.3 Java Yes application/x-java-applet;version=1.2 Java Yes application/x-java-applet;version=1.2.1 Java Yes application/x-java-applet;version=1.2.2 Java Yes application/x-java-applet;version=1.3 Java Yes application/x-java-applet;version=1.3.1 Java Yes application/x-java-applet;version=1.4 Java Yes application/x-java-applet;version=1.4.1 Java Yes application/x-java-applet;version=1.4.2 Java Yes application/x-java-applet;version=1.5 Java Yes application/x-java-applet;version=1.6 Java Yes application/x-java-applet;jpi-version=1.6.0_01 Java Yes 10) You can also go to Verify Java Installation in the sun website to check if the plugin is already installed.
  7. Finally, I was able to install the plugin to my Firefox browser. Here are the steps I did: 1) Execute the steps in http://www.java.com/en/download/help/5000010500.xml#rpm. 2) For the instruction in http://www.java.com/en/download/help/5000010500.xml#enable, make a link of the java directory to firefox and mozilla by executing the commands below: cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ <-- (mozilla directory) ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so <-- (jre version is 1.6.0_01) cd /usr/lib/firefox- <-- (firefox directory) ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so 3) Go to Edit > Preferences. Under Content category > Select Enable Java.
  8. I am trying to install the java runtime environment from the sun website to my Firefox I followed the instructions from http://www.java.com/en/download/help/5000010500.xml#rpm. But when I opened my firefox browser and browse to http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp, the page displays but the applet doesn't load. Any help on this?
