  1. I've seen the hardware data base on mandrakelinux.com so I know what scanners work, but I'm wanting to get some input form others on this forum. I want to get a scanner and want to have minimal issues with it, maybe something that'll work right out of the box with Mandrake 10 OE. Sam
  2. Here's the deal. For some reason, my CDRW drive doesn't read my Mandrake 10 CD3, but my DVD drive will. If I click on "Install software" and get the program up and try to install anything it brings up K3B because it thinks the CD is blank (I guess). If I put the same CD in my DVD drive and browse the CD to the RPM I want to install, I am successfull. So the issue seems to be the drive. Yep, it could be dirty or whatever but my question is: How do I tell Mandrake (10) to install from the DVD drive (/dev/hdd) instead of the CDRW drive (/dev/hdc)? Sam
  3. I've got 2 Mandrake 10 desktop computers and a D-Link router. I've never networked Linux and Linux before. I don't have a crossover cable so I used my router between the two machines. I've tried using DHCP from the router and also static IP's. Installed NFS but all it did was slow down both machines terribly and I have no idea how to browse from one machine to the other. To make this short, I don't know what the &^%$#@ I'm doing! I reversed everything I did and uninstalled NFS and now the computers are moving fast like before. I'm wondering if someone can walk me through a simple peer to peer network setup and explain the best way to browse the network. I don't want to set up a default gateway, just simply use the router as a hub I guess. I'm using dial-up for the Internet so specifying a default gateway will block me from browsing. There's got to be an easy way to do this. I'm dual booting with WinXP on both machines and the network was "cake" to set up. This chaps my hide because I hate WinXP (I just use it for gaming). HELP!! I'm Network+ certified but feel like a retard right now! Sam
  4. I'm using an external serial modem - Actiontec. Never given me trouble. This is the modem that AOL sends out to its customers. Got it off of Ebay. I used to use a Viking external modem and it worked great up until it died.
  5. It's funny. I thought I was the only one that didn't like the star. I mean, it's not ugly or anything but it just doesn't fit for some reason. I wonder if they got the idea from SuSE using the little gecko icon. Anyway, thanks a bunch, LiquidZoo...
  6. Thanks for the input. I did some research and found that the Spiderman game may need a "no-cd" crack for it to work. I'm not sure if this is correct or not. I did try to install a language learning program and it worked from the CD really well...
  7. Hello guys, I have winex3-3.2 installed and it works pretty well, so I installed my Spiderman game from the CD and it all went well. But when I launch the game, I get the error "Please insert the Spiderman cdrom, select OK, and restart the game". It does this with all games that need to run from a CD. It seems winex can't find the cdrom drive. I checked the Transgaming config file with the paths and all, but can't figure out how to tell winex "here's the cdrom drive, damn it!". Can anyone help??? My cdrom drives are: /dev/hdc and /dev/hdd Here's my ~/.transgaming/config file: WINE REGISTRY Version 2 ;; All keys relative to \\Machine\\Software\\Wine\\Wine\\Config ;; ;; MS-DOS drives configuration ;; ;; Each section has the following format: ;; [Drive X] ;; "Path"="xxx" (Unix path for drive root) ;; "Type"="xxx" (supported types are 'floppy', 'hd', 'cdrom' and 'network') ;; "Label"="xxx" (drive label, at most 11 characters) ;; "Serial"="xxx" (serial number, 8 characters hexadecimal number) ;; "Filesystem"="xxx" (supported types are 'msdos'/'dos'/'fat', 'win95'/'vfat', 'unix') ;; This is the FS Wine is supposed to emulate on a certain ;; directory structure. ;; Recommended: ;; - "win95" for ext2fs, VFAT and FAT32 ;; - "msdos" for FAT16 (ugly, upgrading to VFAT driver strongly recommended) ;; DON'T use "unix" unless you intend to port programs using Winelib ! ;; "Device"="/dev/xx" (only if you want to allow raw device access) ;; [Drive C] "Path" = "/home/korsam/.transgaming/c_drive" "Type" = "hd" "Label" = "Dos Drive" "Filesystem" = "win95" [Drive D] "Path" = "${HOME}" "Type" = "hd" "Label" = "My Home" "Filesystem" = "win95" [Drive E] "Path" = "/tmp" "Type" = "hd" "Label" = "tmp" "Filesystem" = "win95" [Drive G] "Path" = "/" "Type" = "hd" "Label" = "root" "Filesystem" = "win95" [wine] "Windows" = "c:\\windows" "System" = "c:\\windows\\system32\\" "Temp" = "e:\\" "Path" = "c:\\windows\\;c:\\windows\\system32\\" "GraphicsDriver" = "x11drv" ; Wine doesn't pass directory symlinks to Windows programs by default. ; Enabling this may crash some programs that do recursive lookups of a whole ; subdir tree in case of a symlink pointing back to itself. ; ; Note: The WINESHELLLINK Environment variable will override this setting. ; (which is set in the winex startup script) ;"ShowDirSymlinks" = "1" "ShellLinker" = "/usr/lib/transgaming_winex3/winex/bin/wineshelllink" # <wineconf> [DllDefaults] "DefaultLoadOrder" = "native, builtin, so" [DllOverrides] "commdlg" = "builtin, native" "comdlg32" = "builtin, native" "oleaut32" = "builtin, native" "ver" = "builtin, native" "version" = "builtin, native" "shell" = "builtin, native" "shell32" = "builtin, native" "shfolder" = "builtin, native" "shlwapi" = "builtin, native" "lzexpand" = "builtin, native" "lz32" = "builtin, native" "comctl32" = "builtin, native" "commctrl" = "builtin, native" "advapi32" = "builtin, native" "crtdll" = "builtin, native" "mpr" = "builtin, native" "winspool.drv" = "builtin, native" "d3d8" = "builtin, native" "d3drm" = "builtin, native" "ddraw" = "builtin, native" "dinput" = "builtin, native" "dinput8" = "builtin, native" "dmusic" = "builtin, native" "dsound" = "builtin, native" "opengl32" = "builtin, native" "msvcrt" = "native, builtin" "rpcrt4" = "native, builtin" "msvideo" = "builtin, native" "msvfw32" = "builtin, native" "mcicda.drv" = "builtin, native" "mciseq.drv" = "builtin, native" "mciwave.drv" = "builtin, native" "mciavi.drv" = "native, builtin" "mcianim.drv" = "native, builtin" "msacm.drv" = "builtin, native" "msacm" = "builtin, native" "msacm32" = "builtin, native" "midimap.drv" = "builtin, native" "wininet" = "builtin, native" [Version] ; Windows version to imitate.

  8. I'm not a Mandrake Club member yet, but I found an RPM at rpmfind.net. Kaffeine works perfectly. I changed some file associations in KDE so that it uses Kaffeine instead of Totem. (Don't really like Totem...)
  9. Thanks Arctic, I'll check it out when I get home tonight!
  10. Anyone know where I can find a Mandrake RPM of Kaffeine, or any rpm for it?
  11. Open up a file manager window, like Konqueror, and type in /home/john/.cvswinex and hit enter. You should see the file "config" in here. In can be opened with a text editor. Same thing with the "transgaming folder" /home/john/.transgaming and open the config file with a text editor... Sam
