  2. oh heck, forget about the iphone...they need to release that sucker. Here's more info (if you're interested in this... I've been following it): http://www.linuxtogo.org/gowiki/OpenMoko http://www.linuxtogo.org/gowiki/OpenMoko/iPhone
  3. If your an advocate of open source: http://www.openmoko.com/press/index.html
  4. And a built-in browser, and widgets, and google maps, music and...and...and...did you read the feature list? Sure, you have your blackberries and windows ce based devices out there...but have you ever used on of those? They're a pain in the arse, small screens, smaller buttons...the revolutionary part is the design. That's what Apple does, concentrates on HCI. CBS last night:
  5. Simply keep your wallet open: Open K-wallet and right click on it in your panel (taskbar), and select Configure Wallet. In the Close Wallet section make sure you have all boxes unchecked.
  6. Here's a simple fix: http://zerlinna.blogweb.de/archives/73-Wat...p-protocol.html Edit: For Mandriva 2007 change the /usr/bin/X11/mplayer to /usr/bin/mplayer
  7. gnome-media check the Requires (depends) here: http://fr.rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/mandriva/1...-5mdk.i586.html I'm glad you have it working, and don't forget... google is your friend :)
  8. I'm using the snd-intel8x0 with a SiS7012 on my desktop now... ALSA works great. As Aussie-John has already noted “Try different ones”, then use the one that works/sounds best.

    K3b [solved]

    If it's still not writing at the speed you want, check the options in K3b. Open K3b, go to: Settings> Configure K3b> Devices> click on 'Max write speed' (the number) and change it to the desired speed... that your burner and media will handle
  11. A quick google shows that sound works with Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) using the snd-hda-intel driver
  12. Right-click> Actions> convert to :D
  13. Here: http://sunsite.mff.cuni.cz/pub/mandrake/de...0mdk.noarch.rpm Sorry, I didn't notice your sig said Mandriva 2006
  14. urpmi audiokonverter will give you an 'easy to use' right-click converter, then you can burn the converted files to cd I know this isn't exactly what you are after... but it will work.
  15. Do you have a log from the terminal when (if) you did it? If not I have a test box, I will do it for you? It's the only way I know to find what damage you have done? Let me know? Greg
  16. It sounds like you may have started a KDE app as root instead of using kdesu? First, you should never do that... but if you have already done so, a few things happen: you create a new authority file /root/.ICEauthority you create (or overwrite) new directories, files and symlinks in /root that you do not need you change ownership and perms in /home/whomever/.ICEauthority The first two are a PITA to fix, and you may or may not need to fix them. The 3rd can be done easily... as you 'have' done with the .Xauthority file. Make a copy of the /home/xxx/.ICEauthority (just in case I'm wrong), then delete it from home. Reboot your system... it 'should' create a new one. Let use know if it works for you?

    Ok, if you want to listen to this or 'almost' any streaming radio or video http://www.wabcradio.com/article.asp?id=122648 You will need to install: mplayer1.0-1.pre8.13plf2007.0 real-codecs-1.2.3plf win32-codecs-1.8-1plf2007.0 mplayerplugin-3.25-2mdv2007.0 and for .asx you will need: vlc-0.8.5-11plf200.0 mozilla-plugin-vlc- Please note (from their site): Sorry, but if your ISP is located outside of the U.S.A. you will no longer be able to stream WABC radio at this time for the Saturday music show which runs from 6pm–10pm. Let us know if that works for you? I'm listening to it now with the packages I've listed for you to install.

    I've only d/l an address, and changed it to an address (URL) that mplayer can use. It's one I found on this site: http://www.musicradio77.com/ and Firefox plugins would not handle the URL Show me a link to what you want to listen to and I'll check it.

  20. It provides scripting support for the flash player. The rest of this post is probably 'more' than you want to know. :) .xpt is the standard suffix for XPCOM type libraries XPCOM stands for Cross-Platform Component Object Model. The purpose of XPCOM is to provide a mechanism for writing modular software objects (components) over a reasonably large number of platforms. XPCOM type libraries contain binary definitions of interfaces used by cross-thread marshalling routines and JavaScript to call objects. In other words they are as vital as DLLs to ensure Gecko functions properly. Much more on it here: http://www.mozilla.org/scriptable/typelib_file.html
