  1. I found a solution to this:Disable speedboost
  2. When I set up this system post-install, I enabled auto-login via the kde system settings (kdesu systemsettings) and sound worked fine.(except it kept resetting the kmix volumes to a higher level than I left them, but that's fixed.) After an update (of mostly kde stuff) the sound stopped working. I can only get it work if I disable auto-login. I did search the forums and the web and didn't find anything using the same search terms as the title of this thread. I haved tried different display managers but the results are the same. The system is Mandriva 2010 Free. Hope someone can help. Thanks lynch
  3. Thanks, ( once again) Greg2, for your help. The icedtea-plugin did the trick. Reiver_Fluffi, I am using Firefox. Thanks. :) lynch
  4. I can't seem to find an answer to how to get this working: I used to view the live traffic cams on the state website to plan my travel routes but can't seem to get this right on my 64bit system. I know you need to use the 32 bit version but it keeps saying that I either need to install jre or I dont have it installed. This works fine with my other 32bit systems but I want to have it on my 64 bit systems as well Any ideas are appreciated. lynch

    frostwire [solved]

    It may not be the way grimx solved it, but here's the way I got Frostwire working on my 2008.1 64bit system: Frostwire was not available via urpmi or MCC so I downloaded the noarch version from sourceforge. It would not work when I clicked the icon in Kmenu >Internet >Frostwire. When I ran it from the terminal, I got errors saying to update to version 1.5-sun. I did and tried again, but got the same errors. So I ran this, as root: update-alternatives --config java Here's what I got: There are 2 programs which provide `java'. Selection Command ----------------------------------------------- * 1 /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.7.0-icedtea.x86_64/bin/java + 2 /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.5.0-sun/bin/java Enter to keep the default[*], or type selection number: Turns out it was using Icedtea, so I selected /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.5.0-sun/bin/java. After that I ran Frostwire as root from the terminal again and it found java ok but it was complaining about the order in which some libs were being loaded. I've forgotten which ones they were. But I did a search on google/linux that turned up the final piece to the puzzle (for me): I opened a root terminal and typed: nano /usr/lib/frostwire/runFrostwire.sh I then changed this line from export AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit to export AWT_TOOLKIT=XToolkit And that got it running for me. :) Hope that helps someone. lynch
  6. Heheh, yeah, let's take the weekend off. It seems to work OK now. Thanks for the help. lynch
  7. First off, I did not run the command as root and I was mistaken in the command I was telling you about; I posted nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so when it was actually nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so When I ran nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so I got this: [root@localhost ~]# nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so nspluginwrapper: /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so is not a valid NPAPI plugin When I ran nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so it just returned me to the root prompt. OK then I did this: [root@localhost ~]# nspluginwrapper -l /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so Original plugin: /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so Wrapper version string: 0.9.91.5 For the next command I altered it to this: cd /usr/lib/flash-plugin; ls and it resulted in this: [root@localhost ~]# cd /usr/lib/flash-plugin; ls homecleanup* libflashplayer.so* LICENSE README setup* Then I ran this: cd /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins; ls -la total 120 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2008-06-05 17:14 ./ drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2008-06-05 17:14 ../ -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 191 2008-06-05 17:34 libtotem-basic-plugin.xpt -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3251 2008-06-05 17:34 libtotem-complex-plugin.xpt -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1339 2008-06-05 17:34 libtotem-cone-plugin.xpt -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4504 2008-06-05 17:34 libtotem-gmp-plugin.xpt -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1237 2008-06-05 17:34 libtotem-mully-plugin.xpt -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2235 2008-06-05 17:34 libtotem-narrowspace-plugin.xpt -rwx------ 1 root root 74984 2008-06-20 15:11 npwrapper.libflashplayer.so* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 61 2008-04-16 18:50 npwrapper.so -> ../../../../usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/x86_64/linux/npwrapper.so* Here is the output of FF the 1st time I ran it from the CLI: [lynch@localhost ~]$ firefox LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so [/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so: cannot open shared object file: Permission denied] Flash Player: Warning: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING is set and is not UTF-8 (npviewer.bin:10806): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "ia_ora", Flash Player: Warning: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING is set and is not UTF-8 (npviewer.bin:10855): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "ia_ora", Flash Player: Warning: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING is set and is not UTF-8 (gecko:10768): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_destroy: assertion `GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed I could watch and listen to the flash video I watched at youtube.

I hope this is what you wanted. On the 64bit version of Spring the libs and stuff are in different places so I posted a few extra things. :) I'll check back later. Thanks for the help. lynch
  8. Not at that machine right at the moment but I'll do that as soon as I can.
  9. Update: I now have flash working- video and sound- but this thing isnt solved, yet. I uninstalled flash-plugin and FF and had to uninstall kerry/beagle/gluezilla etc along with it in order get all the libs associated with them off so I could re-install Flash and FF. Well after that I ran nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so re-started FF and everything worked again. Trouble is, I have to run the nspluginwrapper command everytime I want to use Flash. I tried running the 32bit version of FF and it said I needed to either update Flash or make sure Java was enabled. :roll: I got rid of that too. And so it goes... :) edited command I posted.
  10. I did a slight variation on that: nspluginwrapper -i /usr/lib//flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so That got the video portion back, though, now I have no sound in flash. Now I'm back to where I started. Before, when I was trying to get sound to work with flash, I thought I fixed it by moving my npwrapper.libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins. And that command you suggested needs to be run every time I open Firefox; it doesnt stick. I am using Mandriva 2008.1 free spring x86-64. thanks for helping lynch
  11. Thanks for your reply. Never lost sound except with the flash-plugin. Yes, I did change the mixer stuff back but no joy.
  12. I seem to have lost the flash-plugin on my 64-bit system after trying to change the master channel in my sound mixer. When I go to Comcast's The Fan or Youtube all I get is a blank space where the video used to be. There is no player showing on Youtube, just a white space where the player screen used to be. On Comcast it opens to a new window like normal but the " loading...." progress bar is not present and all I get is a black screen and that message that says " done" at the bottom of Firefox when a page is done loading. I had updated lame and kaudiocreator but everything still worked as far as can recall. tia lynch
  13. I had this problem on my 64-bit system and was able to fix it by copying my npwrapper.libflashplayer.so from /home/lynch/.mozilla/plugins to /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins. I do have pulseaudio disabled.
