  1. Hmm, it might be something like that. Unfortunately I don't have my laptop now but I remember that the devises were recognised as sd and not as hd. I will also check it this evening. If this is the problem, where should I change the reference for the devices from hd to sd in order for the "old" kernel to recognize the devices (is it only in the fstab )? S.
  2. These files do exist. It seems that ther is another problem preventing the system to boot: Mounting root filesystem mount: could not find filesystem 'dev/root' Setting up other filesystems Setting up new root fs setuproot: moving /dev failed: No such file or directory no fstab.sys, mounting internal defaults setuproot: error mounting /proc: No such file or directory setuproot: error mounting /sys: No such file or directory Switching to new root and running init unmounting old /dev unmounting old /proc unmounting old /sys switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory Booting has failed
  3. Hmm, this is very tricky for me ! I tried so many things without any success... E.g: I tried to edit the xorg.conf file but didn't work. You can see the full story here: https://mandrivausers.org/index.php?showtopic=60904 I want to get this thing working so badly, since I HATE windows so much and I LOVE Linux ! S.
  4. You mean about the not booting - balnk screen state ? I just don't see the HDD led busy. I also tried some other things but now the laptop hangs during boot with an error message: "Booting has failed" after it tries to mount the root filesystem. Mounting root filesystem mount: could not find filesystem 'dev/root' Setting up other filesystems Setting up new root fs setuproot: moving /dev failed: No such file or directory no fstab.sys, mounting internal defaults setuproot: error mounting /proc: No such file or directory setuproot: error mounting /sys: No such file or directory Switching to new root and running init unmounting old /dev unmounting old /proc unmounting old /sys switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory Booting has failed
  5. Well, the hole file looks like this (see attached) menu.txt
  6. Thanks ! I have finally managed to compile the Kernel successfully. The problem now is that when I try to load with the kernel 2.6.18 the laptop is not booting at all, but is hangs with a blank screen from the very beginning... Ahhh ! S.
  7. ianw1974 thanks for the reply ! I tried to compile the kernel but I received the following errors after "make install" --> No module sata_nv found for kernel 2.6.18, aboarding mkinitrd failed: (mkinitrd -v -f /boot/initrd-2.6.18.img --ifneeded 2.6.18)) at /usr/lib/libDrakX/bootloader.pm line 118) make[1]: *** [install] Error 2 make: *** [install] Error 2 Did i make a mistake somewhere ? Thanks !
  8. Hey gyus ! I have an HP tx2140 tablet pc and I cannot get the wacom pen work correctly at all in Mandriva 2008. I have noticed that it works (uncallibrated though but I hope to be able to fix this) with an older kernel. I tried to install the older kernel (2.6.18) but with no success. I tried to 1) compile the from the downloaded tar archive (it gave me some errors but I am not sure if it was the correct the procedure I followed at all...) 2) install it from rpm I found in an Mandriva 2007 (nut it hangs during boot with a message after "unmounting old /sys" "Booting has failed") Could you please help me to find and compile or install an rpm of the kernel-2.6.18 for Mandriva 2008 correctly ? Thanks ! S. [moved from Laptops, etc by spinynorman]
  9. Hm, that's sounds logical... So the thing is to get wacom to work correctly.
  10. Hmm, that's strange ! I tried that also but with no success ! The strange thing is that the wacom is recognized and it almost works.But, it seems that it does not use the wacom driver because when I do modprobe -r wacom the pen - touchscreen still works but when I do modprobe -r usbmouse the pen - touchscreen stops working. No one else have any clue about this strange problem ? S.
  11. Thanks for the reply ! The wacom device is indeed recognized ! That's why i think there should be a way getting this work... --------------------------------------------------------------- This is what I get if I type "lsusb" in the terminal Bus 001 Device 005: ID 056a:0093 Wacom Co., Ltd Bus 001 Device 004: ID 08ff:1600 AuthenTec, Inc.

I attach you my xorg.conf to have a look if you want.

  12. Hey guys. Well, I've recently bought an HP tx2000 and since I was using Mandriva before and liked it so much I installed Mandriva to this laptop as well. The problem is that I can't get the wacom pen and touchscreen work at all ! It's a pity because I hate windows and i don't want to use them... So, The wacom is a usb device and it is not working at all when I load mandriva with the kernel 2.6.24.5-laptop. When I boot with the kernel linus-2.6.25.4 I get a response from the pen. The problem is that when I touch the screen with the pen, the mouse pointer goes to the right of the screen and bounces up and down no matter how I move the pen. It seems that the module usbmouse takes control of the pen because when I type to the terminal "modprobe -r usbmouse" the pen stops working even if I enter the command "modprobe wacom" after I unload the usbmouse module :-( The other problem I face with the linus kernel is that the ndiswrapper gives an error message: "Unable to find ndiswrapper interface" when it tries to configure the Bradcom WiFi card. The WiFi card works flawlessly with kernel 2.6.24.5-laptop and ndiswrapper... Is there any way to get these things working and throw the Windows cd in the garbage :-) ??? I heard some success stories but for me it did not work out :-( Thanks in advance for your help ! Cheers, Stavros
