  1. Hi, I'm trying to get flac playback in Amarok. I use the Xine engine, and have installed xine-flac. Amarok spits out no errors. I tried playing the file in Xine, but it doesn't work there either. Amarok with Gstreamer engine does not work either. (I have installed gstreamer-FLAC) Am I missing something? cheers, DimmO
  2. I got all KDE installed with the local custom repository. Thanks. :)
  3. I copy/pasted the addmedia line from http://www.mde.djura.org/index2006.0.html - urpmi.addmedia MDE http://www.mde.djura.org/2006.0/RPMS with hdlist.cz I could check synthesis.hdlist.cz - to see if it gives the same (I'm installing kdebase-suite, not just arts)
  4. I get 404s for a lot of packages trying to install kdebase-suite. eg: http://www.mde.djura.org/2006.0/RPMS/arts-....0.mde.i586.rpm ...retrieving failed: curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 http://www.mde.djura.org/2006.0/RPMS/libar....0.mde.i586.rpm ...retrieving failed: curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 I notice it's looking for the rpm's in /RPMS/ instead of /RPMS/KDE-3.5.4/ I've copied the whole KDE dir to my hdd and made that a new urpmi source. wish me luck...
  5. After a bit of mucking around, I broke my whole network configuration, so, I got booted into safe mode and deleted, then reconfigured the lot. now it works! Here's the trick: In the modem setup webpage contraption ( setup 2 bridged WAN connections - one for intermernet as a pppoe connection and one for communitynet as a dhcp type connection. (the only details entered on these connections are for VCI/VPI settings) In drakconnect: 1) setup internet account with my regular pppoe settings including the correct vci/vpi details and user/pass. This will automagically setup DNS from the ppp connection, and will automagically setup eth0 with no address (no static and no dhcp). 2) go back to drakconnect and edit eth0 properties. change it to grab an address from dhcp, and make sure to turn off the option to obtain dns from dhcp.
  6. Hi, I got a bit further last night. I set another virtual connection on the modem's config software/html interface, so now I have 2 bridged connections set on the modem. I then simply set eth0 (not eth0:0) to obtain an IP address by dhcp. (Previously it was set for no IP at all for the pppoe connection). It all worked fine for about 5 minutes. - I could browse internet websites, and ping the communitynet irc server ( Then, it all died in the ass - all internet and communitynet servers could not be found (host not found when pinging). I restarted the network - as root: "service network restart", and it all worked again for 5 minutes. I wonder if this is conflicting dns entries? I found an option in the drakconnect panel that stops eth0 from taking DNS addresses from DHCP (I assumed that the PPP assigned DNS servers would remain), but that broke everything. I'll have another go tonight. Cheers, DimmO.
  7. This "communitynet" gig is essentially a WAN over dsl infrastructure, not a 2nd connection to the internet. The communitynet groups are assigned 10.x.x.x addresses, so shouldn't conflict, yeah? At the moment, my isp has only offered guides for modem/routers, and mine (that the isp supplied) isn't compatible. Looks like i'll have to get a replacement modem/router. :( I think that Video on Demand and VOIP will be using 3rd and 4th connections in future.
  8. Hi, I currently have ADSL connected via PPPOE (setup with drakconf). VPI: 8, VCI 35 Now, I wish to add a 2nd connection via the same eth card and modem with DHCP. VPI: 8, VCI: 36 Reason is, my isp has just started offering free data transfer between everyone on the same DSLAM as me. (The internet side of things has a monthly data cap). here's my config (MDK2006.0) my modem is set for "bridged" mode eth0-->modem-->internet eth1-->switch--> lan My first guess was to create an alias of the ethernet card, and make a new adsl connection with drakconf, but with a DHCP adsl connection, i can't set VC or VP... How can I setup the second connection? Thanks, DimmO.
  9. I had the same problem - Installing on an old pc, I got random package install errors (random in that when i restarted the install, the error showed up at a different package). The kernel log (ctrl+alt+F4) during install showed ide time-outs and ide crc errors It turned out to be an ide controller problem. try these things: 1. reset bios to defaults (not performance defaults) 2. different ide cables / combination of drives on each ide cable 3. different hdd 4. different mobo. blah.

  10. is this what you're after? http://www.scintilla.utwente.nl/users/frank/smb2www/ or this? http://www.nivel0.net/SmbWebClient I found these just the other day, browsing through www.samba.org. click "GUI" on the left side of the page. there's a few other programs there.
  11. update: I seemed to have nailed it down a bit: The problem occurs when the following happen: 1) the samba connection is "open" (eg: I'm playing mp3s over the network) and 2) the connection goes down (just now I accidentally pulled the cable out. Also, if I reboot the windows PC) I can't get the connection to work again unless I reboot the mdk machine. any ideas?
  12. ***all of my samba mounts used to work***, now my music one has died in the arse. I have the following mounts defined on my mdk machine (in fstab): /mnt/windows/download /mnt/windows/movies.1 /mnt/windows/movies.2 /mnt/windows/music these point to d:\download d:\movies e:\movies e:\music on my windows 2000 machine when I try to access /mnt/windows/music, this shows up in /var/log/messages: Nov 24 21:07:32 moneyshot kernel: smb_add_request: request [cb65eee0, mid=28830] timed out! There are no obvious errors in any of the /var/log/samba/* files # cd music #ls ls: .: Input/output error I have no problems browsing and accessing files in the other shares. help-a-noob. :) cheers.
  13. I had a similar problem - at boot up, shorewall was trying to start before the network interfaces. I had to rename some links in /etc/rc.d/rc1.d through to rc6.d the links that start the services all have file names beginning with "S". The number after the S is the start order. Make sure that the number for shorewall is bigger than the numbers for network. On my pc, shorewall starts in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d all you have to do is log in as root and rename the links. (forgive my incorrect lingo) :)
  14. done. Out of curiosity, is it K for kill (rc0.d and rc6.d) and s for start (in the others)? thanks for your help. I'll reboot one day and test it out. :)
  15. Shorewall is failing at boot - note that it starts before the network is started: boot.log Aug 23 23:13:22 linuxo shorewall: Error: Unable to determine the routes through interface Aug 23 23:13:31 linuxo network: Bringing up interface eth0: succeeded Aug 23 23:13:37 linuxo network: Bringing up interface eth1: succeeded i found this: chkconfig --list network 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off shorewall 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off Once i'm logged into X, I can open a terminal, su and then start shorewall manually (now that network is up) How can I get shorewall to start after the network is up? should shorewall be started at init 2 or 3? how would I go aboot fixing this? thanks in advance.
