  1. Okay, I know of a few drivers that work with it actually... so I'll try that.
  2. Err.... What other drivers? I'm still new to linux. Is there somewhere I can find these, like the linuxgametome... only for printer drivers? Or would just google-it work?
  3. From Open Office, it doesn't close, but it's taking an insanely long time to process the task, I sent it to the task list five minutes ago, and have a feeling it's stalled.... the same thing happend with the CUPS test page, however it only printed when I went over the the RPM management to attempt to remove cups... oddly it began printing... perhaps I need to whip my linux into submission? ;)
  4. I'm having problems with my CUPS service, all I can get out of it is a test page... I attempted to print 6 pages of a .pdf document (though the viewer that KDE gives you), and the window crashes (I get the crashed window popup). I had the print manager running in the background, telling me that no new tasks had been added to the list. So, any suggestions as to what I can do to fix this?
  5. I'm not sure if it's Redhat or Mandrake (or both) that has a blurb on how to install it without CDs. It might be worth looking into.
  6. I have no folder like that... The only thing I have is USB/HID and a blank folder, this camera is the only USB that I have plugged in. Meh, as long as I learned somthing new.
  7. The list of "S" folders is SCSI and SHM (sound too), so that means I don't have any SD folder. The hardware configuration tool from "configure your computer" says it knows the device is there, but cannot work it (since it doesn't have a driver).
  8. I'm having problems getting my camera to work, the maker doesn't support *nix of any flavour, only win systems. The camera can be found here: http://www.leiproducts.com/products/database/WC-10/index.php Is there any genaric way to get USB cameras to work? Or a way to get this one to work? Otherwise I'll need to run my windows partition all day (the camera is for a server, and the point of the server actually).

    This thread has helped me out alot too, thanks.
  10. I think the splash screen has the version on it, actually.
  11. I would have used google normaly, but it's too genaric of a search for me to get what I'd want. I installed Java, but I get this error when installing somthing that needs it: What I want to know is, what is the "PATH" and how do I set up an installation of java to get this working?
  12. I'm having problems with SDL, I go to download them off of the website libsdl.org, and install the RPM, however I have several problems, to make things more simple I've attached a screen shot of the error I get, and the ./configure that tells me I need SDL, and then another window showing that I do infact have SDL. I have no idea what to do, but I don't want to remove the existing SDL package, because that will cause me to lose several other programs ranging from games, to Blender3d, and even some movie creator programs.... I really do not want to install those again. So what do I do? I don't know if I have to make changes to files or or what to do, I really don't know, any help would be great, thanks.
  13. Well, after running that command, I know my drivers are working... And I'm reciving data from my card... Just look at the attachment screenshot. So, now I'm really lost at what the problem is... o.O I'm sure I set up all the correct information... I have the booklet directly infront of me and have done it several times.
  14. They can't just accept that no body likes them ;).
  15. Ineed it is, I'm currently doing this, but I'm also saving longer text files to my /mnt/windows or /mnt/floppy, I just figured I should mention this as a tip for anyone. I was told to ask about my network probelm here... my thread describing my problem can be found here. I'm really new to all of this, and have gone though all sorts of downloads, FAQs and help files... Any help would be awesome.
  16. Erm, my mistake, it's not a router it's a hub, my brain wasn't quite on when posting that. I'll check the "lsmod | grep tulip" and "modprobe tulip" and all of those other things, but I know I need PPPoE becuase I *don't* have a router. Thanks for the advice, I'll get on it soon.

  18. Not sure how old this is, but it's related, and you may have not seen it... http://www.redhat.com/about/presscenter/20...atehearing.html
  19. I have fixed this problem, thanks everyone. Well hello everyone, I have a problem. This problem has to do with either my ISP or my network card, I don't know what one it is... So, lets see if we can eliminate my possable network problem first. I am running a computer with two network cards, however have disabled the 3com one, so that is not important, but what is, is my other card, which is set up as eth0 and is a NC100 Network Everywhere 10/100 PCI Ethernet Adapter that linksys no longer has support for. The drivers have been installed from mandrake 10's install CDs, and I also have a (old, by atleast 2 or more years) floppie disk with the same tulip.c driver (but havn't installed into kernel, since I A- don't know how, and B- mandrake has told me it already has done this). So, the problem here, is I don't know if the card is working normal in linux (I know the card it's self works, since I'm using it on windows to post this [dual-boot system]). How do I check (or set up my Mandrake to let me investigate) if it is able to recive and send data? As for my next problem, I'm using Bell Sympatico for my ISP, I'm using their high speed package... I've checked all accross google, other forums, and even this forum where I've seen that some one here is it, however nothing works for me, and well... my ISP doesn't have a great tech support page for it, and no, you're browser isn't broken, the files it tells you to download are not really there. I have downloaded several PPPoE clients and programs galore that say they work with it, but none of them have proven to actually manage to establish a connection, therefore somthing must be wrong with me, because I've even searched specificly for mandrake support, and have seen other users who sware by one client or another to connect, and they use my ISP. I really have no idea what to do... my connection times out and I get a [FAILED] due to a time out error, and overlapping onto my network problem, it gives a failure on bringing up eth0 interface previosuly to this. If there's anything else I can tell you about this, please tell me, I really want to get my internet running on Linux. :thankyousign: EDIT: Oh, I compleatly forgot to explain some more things... I'm running a LAN with two other win98 machines running that I cannot change (because I'm 16, and my parents would kill me for changing it to a forgin OS on them). My lan consists of the computers hooked up via all the same network cards to a router, hooked up to a DSL modem, which then goes through to my phone line (and noise filter). And I think that's all I really had to add here. [moved from Hardware by spinynorman]
  20. If you read past the first bit, you'd see I did it as root also. Anyway, now I can install these because I have installed the devel packages from the CDs, everything works with this now, thanks everyone.
  21. That's awesome, thanks everyone for your help.
  22. Okay, since nothing has worked so far... I've got some logs and such that I hope will help. When I go through some programs, ./configure won't work normaly... When I go though one that works with it (a game, actually, without a normal make file oddly), I get this... config.log is an attachment.... (changed to .txt, so I can upload it) I attempted running this: $ rpm -qa | grep gcc gcc-c++-3.3.2-6mdk gcc-cpp-3.3.2-6mdk libgcc1-3.3.2-6mdk gcc-3.3.2-6mdk And got this... And when I run urpmf g++, I recive a list that is the attachment "Netlog.txt" I'm not sure what packages I'm missing, it seems that I am... How do I find out what they are, and where do I get them? config.txt Netlog.txt
  23. So, I could launch Kwrite as root out of konqueror as root?
  24. Thanks for the tip, if it doesn't work I'll post more details and logs of what I did.
