      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. Wine - Mandriva 2006

    Hi, You need to run (as normal user) "wine" (without quotes) in Konsole. That will create the necessary ~/.wine dir, and all required files. Regards, Christian
  2. Sound Troubles.

    Hey, it's me again, I tried what you said, still no go. When I went into draksound, and changed my audio driver, it still didn't work, i couldn't even launch freeciv anymore v. weird... anyway, i was wondering if it could be due to the fact that Mandrake 10 comes with alsa 1.0.2, while the intel drivers are 1.0.1 if so, would it be a good idea to upgrade to 1.0.6? and how would i go about this? Here is the output of the recommended troubleshooter: [christian@localhost christian]$ lspcidrake -v |fgrep AUDIO snd-intel8x0 : Intel Corp.|82801EB AC'97 Audio [MULTIMEDIA_AUDIO] (vendor:8086 device:24d5 subv:8086 subd:a000) [christian@localhost christian]$ grep sound-slot /etc/modules.conf alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0 [christian@localhost christian]$ /sbin/lsmod Module Size Used by snd-seq-oss 33568 0 snd-seq-midi-event 8704 1 snd-seq-oss snd-seq 55696 4 snd-seq-oss,snd-seq-midi-event snd-pcm-oss 53316 0 snd-mixer-oss 19008 1 snd-pcm-oss snd-intel8x0 34440 0 snd-ac97-codec 59588 1 snd-intel8x0 snd-pcm 97440 2 snd-pcm-oss,snd-intel8x0 snd-timer 26660 2 snd-seq,snd-pcm gameport 5664 1 snd-intel8x0 snd-page-alloc 12996 2 snd-intel8x0,snd-pcm snd-mpu401-uart 8320 1 snd-intel8x0 snd-rawmidi 25248 1 snd-mpu401-uart snd-seq-device 9032 3 snd-seq-oss,snd-seq,snd-rawmidi snd 55492 12 snd-seq-oss,snd-seq-midi-event,snd-seq,snd-pcm-oss,snd-mixer-oss,snd-intel8x0,snd-ac97-codec,snd-pcm,snd-timer,snd-mpu401-uart,snd-rawmidi,snd-seq-device soundcore 10560 1 snd ppp_deflate 7104 0 zlib_deflate 23896 1 ppp_deflate zlib_inflate 23648 1 ppp_deflate bsd_comp 6944 0 ppp_async 13280 1 ppp_generic 32720 7 ppp_deflate,bsd_comp,ppp_async slhc 8192 1 ppp_generic ac97_codec 18828 0 appletalk 40272 2 ax25 66020 2 ipx 33220 2 sg 40028 0 sr_mod 18148 0 fglrx 201932 189 autofs4 17120 2 nfsd 175840 0 exportfs 7552 1 nfsd md5 4864 1 ipv6 251392 14 ip_vs 103872 0 hid 55360 0 raw 8640 1 ide-floppy 19776 0 ide-tape 36752 0 ide-cd 41764 0 cdrom 38272 2 sr_mod,ide-cd floppy 61620 0 e1000 83684 0 ohci1394 35684 0 ieee1394 290480 1 ohci1394 reiserfs 254356 1 nls_iso8859-1 4896 2 ntfs 87532 2 supermount 39856 2 lirc_atiusb 11012 0 lirc_dev 14592 2 lirc_atiusb intel-agp 18364 1 agpgart 32460 1 intel-agp ppa 13448 0 parport_pc 34304 0 imm 13608 0 scsi_mod 117808 4 sg,sr_mod,ppa,imm parport 41032 3 ppa,parport_pc,imm usblp 13664 0 ehci-hcd 25572 0 uhci-hcd 31856 0 usbcore 103228 7 hid,lirc_atiusb,usblp,ehci-hcd,uhci-hcd rtc 13640 0 ext3 114216 1 jbd 61976 1 ext3 [christian@localhost christian]$ /sbin/chkconfig -list sound -list: unknown option [christian@localhost christian]$ /sbin/chkconfig --list alsa alsa 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off [christian@localhost christian]$ /sbin/chkconfig --list sound sound 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off [christian@localhost christian]$ aumix -q bash: aumix: command not found [christian@localhost christian]$ /sbin/fuser v /dev/dsp v: No such file or directory /dev/dsp: No such file or directory [christian@localhost christian]$ /sbin/fuser -v /dev/dsp /dev/dsp: No such file or directory [christian@localhost christian]$ Also, when i change a driver, i get this in the konsole window: ERROR: Module snd-intel8x0 does not exist in /proc/modules sorry if i sound like a n00b, but I am one :woops: Christian
  3. Sound Troubles.

    Thanks for you help! I'll try that this weekend, as I don't have the time right now :unsure: I'll let you know how it goes,
  4. ATI Driver Installation

    Actually, Just download the latest drivers. They are working for me (2.6.x kernel) :P Christian
  5. Sound Troubles.

    Again, thanks for your reply; I ran aumix, didn't have it installed, so when to mcc and installed it. All my volumes are at 100, except for Rec which is muted. I then ran userdrake, and added myself to the audio group, still no go. Even after a restart. Oh, and just a fyi I'm running Mdk 10.0 Community edition (I know I should upgrade, and will once 10.1 is released.) Thanks! Christian
  6. Windows vs. Linux

    You can use Wine (for OpenGL and native windows programs) or WineX(Calgera) for DirectX Games. You can use the CVS source from Calgera for free, but good luck, I can't get it to work right :-P

    Ah, Thank you very much! I'll try that as soon as I have access to the computer again (currently working ) still, Christian [copy of preceding post removed by spinynorman - please use 'add reply' button]
  9. Sound Troubles.

    Hey guys, It's me again, :P Well, I have my video, modem, ethernet, and joystick working, now i just can't seem to get my sound to work. I have a Intel onboard audio chip on a D865PERL board. It's an AC`97 codec. I've tried downloading the driver from Intel's site, but they don't work. Any help would be appreciated Christian
  10. Mandrake 10.0 & ATI Drivers ????

    Ok, go to ATI's site and download the driver package for linux. Next, go to MCC (type it into Konsole) and go to Software Management-> Install Next, search by typing in 'kernel' and install the Kernel Souces Package. You will now need to run the ATI installer, tar -zxvf <package_name> then ./<package_name> It will tell you you need to run a command in /bin/ (I forgot what it is) to config your headers. Do that. Now, re-run the installation, then run fglrxconfig and configure your card. Finally, go ahead and restart :-) Christian
  11. Bootsplash doesn't work

    Hrm.... in the FGLRX drivers which I personally use, the Rage series of cards are listed... Did you try running that package? Just a suggestion :D Christian [copy of preceding post removed by spinynorman - please use Add Reply button]
  12. ATI cards

    Hmm... I only use the ATI 9600 All-In-Wonder pro, but if you run fglrxconfig to create your config file, then TVout works :D WineX also works, although I haven't been able to get Aces High or Flight Simulator to work on it :( As for the changes in config, I've found it better to set it and let it be.(Last time I tried changing something, i had to reinstall MDK ) The performance is something that you could never compare an older one with a newer one, because there is just too greate a difference between models. :P Christian
  13. CVS Server

    game, This might be a stupid question, but did you enable your firewall? If you did, that might be blocking it Chris
  14. fglrx ATI Driver

    You are in luck, I did the same thing three days ago! First of all, the drivers do work, and when they do the card is awsome! Did you try running fglrxinfo ? just start up a terminal and type it in. It should say Vendor: ATI Technologies, Inc If it says something like Messa then you are using software rendering. I remember, that the driver requires the Kernel Source header. It is on the third disk. If you open up MCC and go to software management, search for 'kernel' and you will find a package of the 2.6.4 kernel source. Install that, and run the command to configure them. (I can't remember the exact command..... i think it was ./configure in the dir /usr/src/ATI/, but I might be wrong.) Then reinstall the drivers. It should work :D Christian
  15. ATI cards

    Hrmm.... I am a Linux n00b, but recently upgraded my vid card from a *dare I say it* Intel on-board 32mb chip to the ATI All-In-Wonder 9600 pro. In windows, the install was a little tricky, but in linux, it was easy as hell! I just d/led the drivers, put them on CD, switched to Linux and followed the prompts. It took about 3 minuts to install :D . I don't really know what games everyone plays, but for the flight simulators I spend my time on, the ATI works better than the Geforce. (I know this, because the store had a demo of Combat Flight Simulator 3) The only thing you need to worry about with the 9600 and, I suppose the 9800 is the heat buildup in a small case. Christian
