      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. Mandrake 10.1 + iPod photo

    try this: another post on how to get 4G ipods to work
  2. Thac and Zé's KDE 3.4 rpms

    nevermind, the problem was not in ~/session it was a problem with kmail/kontact/whatever that package is called. If it starts everything freezes, i can only move the pointer, and the only way out is ctrl+alt+bkspace. I will figure this out...somehow. Maybe a reinstall of the o'l kmail could do it.
  3. Thac and Zé's KDE 3.4 rpms

    I installed Thac's RPMs after carefully doing the urpmi dance and everything seemed ok. I had the menu entry missing problem which was fixed easily and i had a couple of other minor issues. However, when i went to startup this morning kde froze towards the end of its startup. Solution: I renamed ~/.kde to ~/.kde-back and restarted x and it worked...no freeze ups. So i've been migrating stuff from kde-back to kde to find out what is messed up. The problem seems to be something in ~/.kde/share/config/session/ So i whiped that clean and it starts up fine (with messed up icons and nothing left open from my last session). I'll continue migrating the rest of the files and i'll let anyone know if anything else is to blame.
  4. Problem pretty much solved! I removed all gcc versions on my computer. Then i reinstalled and tried each one. Things only seemed to compile with 3.4 for some reason. However, ver 0.3.2 of powermated wouldn't compile the xmms portion for some reason. So I compiled 0.3.1 which worked quite well with the exception of not being able to use the beep library stuff to have the led pulse to the music (luckily i don't want to do that anyways) I would also like to say that the developer of this software was extremely helpful, friendly, and knowledgable. He is exactly what we love about the open source community.
  5. I was completely wrong. Boy do i feel foolish right now. I wasn't thinking right and forgot to look for the devel packages. Oh well. The new problem is that powermated won't compile (everything else works just fine). It spits out this error: PMDaemon.cpp: In member function `bool PMDaemon::performAction(PMDActionType, int, int*, const char*)': PMDaemon.cpp:744: internal compiler error: in optimize_mode_switching, at lcm.c:1225 Please submit a full bug report, with preprocessed source if appropriate. See <URL:https://qa.mandrakesoft.com/> for instructions. make[2]: *** [PMDaemon.o] Error 1 make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/flo/Desktop/powermated-0.3.2/powermated' make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/flo/Desktop/powermated-0.3.2' make: *** [all] Error 2 I have contacted the developer and he said to send him the CFLAGS i was using (-g -O2) and the version of gcc i have installed (3.5) Both of us scoured google to find that there is a possible bug in the mandrake 10.1 compile of gcc. How should I go about fixing this? (also mods, should this be a new post?)
  6. nope...i get the same errors
  7. recently i've been trying to compile several programs from source and i've been getting errors when i run the config scripts. They usually say something like cannot find X, where X is actually installed (including its libraries) and it properly in use by other programs. So far these are the programs and the libraries/components they can't find: powermated: can't find alsa...right now i'm listening to xmms with alsa so its there. http://mandrakeusers.org/index.php?showtopic=23143 checking for snd_mixer_open in -lasound... no configure: error: You must have ALSA Installed xmms-plugin for powermate checking for glib-config... no checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.0... no *** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found *** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in *** your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the *** full path to glib-config. configure: error: *** GLIB >= 1.2.0 not installed - please ins tall first *** TORCS: checking for X... no checking for GL/glut.h... no configure: error: Can't find GL/glut.h. Please check config.log and if you can't solve the problem send the file to eric.espie@free.fr with the subject "torcs compilation problem" These are not the only programs i have this problem with. Does anyone have any ideas or see any pattern forming? [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  8. griffin powermate

    ok, I just got the powermate in the mail today. It plugs in and is regocnized and all (turns blue, harddrake/dmesg show all is well). However, when i got to compile powermated i get an error while running ./configure that says i don't have alsa installed. This is, of course, false. I do have alsa running and it's what i use for puredata, xmms, and everything. Any ideas?
  9. griffin powermate

    I just ordered a griffin powermate (glorified volume knob). I was wondering if anyone here has one up and running on their computer yet. So far I've gone to these websites and they seem pretty informative. http://sourceforge.net/projects/powermated/ http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Griffin_Power...nd_Kernel_2.6.x http://groomlakelabs.com/grandamp/code/ http://powermated.sourceforge.net/ From what I read their is a good change that my 2.6 kernel has the driver already in it. If not i'm going to try and not recompile but build the module. I'll post the how to on here after I actually get the device and get it working. Maybe I'll include some pretty pictures too.

  12. Some KDE programs create these backup files that end in a "~". I'd like to change the configuration so that it makes these files begin with a "." so they are hidden. Where do i do that?
  13. I'm setting up the ol' ipod on my gf's comp and i'd like to make some scripts for mounting and ejecting the ipod. so far i have one that goes: su mount <mounting stuff> exit exit and i have it running through a link on the desktop which lets it run in a terminal window. I'd like her to be ablet click the icon, type in her password, and have the terminal window close. how do i do this? [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  14. 10.1 iwconfig no wireless extensions

    ok...my problem has been solved One of my gf's roomates moved out and the wireless started working perfectly. He was a guy with an old windows box that had lots of viruses, spyware, etc. So i'll blame that and be happy that it works.
  15. 10.1 iwconfig no wireless extensions

    Yeah, I think that might've been the problem. I've got it working now. All i had to do was add "ifconfig eth0 down" and "dhcpcd wlan0" into rc.local to get a v4 IP addy. Only problem i'm having now is that its really really slow and it just froze the computer... dmesg puts out: "ndiswrapper (ndis_set_rx_mode_proc:588): Unable to set packet filter (C00000BB)" pinging google gets me 29.5 ms at first then "Destination Host Unreachable" then 25.7 ms and other semi normal times for a while then unreachable again. Could this be a sensitivity issue? iwconfig shows: Bit rate:12Mb/s (should be 54) Sensitivity=-200 dBm RTS thr:2346 B Fragment thr:2346 B Link quality 92/100 Signal level: -88 dBm Noise level: -256 dBm Rx incalid nwid:0 Rx invlaid crypt:0 Rx invlaid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:8 invalid misc :457 Missed beacon:0 (this is after going to google a few times and constantly pinging it)
