      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. realtek wireless lan adapter

    :)/> Thanks for the help. I tried it, but it didn't resolve the problem, so I started from scratch. I opened up the driver with ark, and went through the process again. Here's what I got.

  3. realtek wireless lan adapter

    I put mandriva spring (2007.1) on an old laptop (Dell Inspiron 5100), and everything is going well, with the exception of wifi. It has no built in wifi, but I have a usb realtek wireless lan adapter that I used under WXP that I would like to use, if possible. The instructions state that it can be used under linux, but. . . I need help to do it! :)/> Here are the instructions on the usb drive wlan realteck: RTL8712(8188_8191_8192SU)_usb_quick_installation_guide.ppt RTL8712_D0_1_Programming_Guide_20090601.doc I had to install a new kernel.

  4. rescatux

    I had trouble logging into Mandriva because the MBR was messed up. Googling around I found a rescue disk - rescatux. It worked really well. It's a live CD based on LDE. I also tried Super Grub2, but without success. rescatux is suppose to be able to do other repairs, too (which I haven't ventured to try).
  5. I work on getting skype working so we can talk to the kids!!
  6. skype [solved]

    Ahhhhh, that explains it. :P
  7. skype [solved]

    I enable main, contrib, non-free, plf free and plf non-free backports, did a normal update via console (with MCC, it didn't give me any updates), and now the video works. Others can see me now!!! (Lucky them!! )
  8. skype [solved]

    Yup, it's there. In the same directory, there's also v4l2convert.so. In fact, with the script you gave me, I also tried that other file, with no luck of course.
  9. skype [solved]

    Thanks for the reply. When I open up skype in console, it doesn't complain about anything. Then I go to options in skype and test the video, and there are still no complaints. With the command dmesg | less, I get the following reading about CIF, which is my web cam. Thanks again. Kieth
  10. skype [solved]

    I know this topic has been covered several times, even by me, but this time I can't figure out how to get the video working. I've googled until my eyes are starting to bug out. I think I'm just missing a file somewhere, but I obviously cannot find it. As always, I'm mine own worse enemy. The problem was caused by my upgrading my system, then "demoting" it back to 2009.1. After I quit using 2009 a couple of years ago, my computer just wasn't been the same, but always had some annoying "twitches" here and there. When I had 2009.1 the first time, the video in skype was working, and even with 2010, but after going to 2011, no. I even went to using backports from MIB. That's when things were the best, but still not perfect. I got frustrated with it all, and decided to return to 2009.1. I think my computer is just getting too old for the new programs. Anyway, back to my present problem. I'm still using the script that Ian wrote for me. V4l works, because when I put this command, vlc v4l:///dev/video0, in console, vlc comes on. Obviously my web cam works with cheese, too. If I start skype in console, there are no messages. Ideas? Thanks, Kieth
  11. This is what I have in rc.local. It doesn't change DPMS at all. It's still: Did I make a mistake on the command? Thanks, Kieth
  12. Every time I boot up my computer, in konsole, I need to enter a command such as: Whether it's in root or not, doesn't matter. Anyway to make such changes permanent? Also, what command would be best, because I just randomly choose 50000 55000 and 60000. Thanks, Kieth [moved from Everything Linux by spinynorman]
