  1. Actually i'm trying to get any sound from Amarok. But whatever engine i try within Amarok, no sound. At this very moment it's the aRts-engine which is selected, when trying to play an audiostream, no sound. Aside from this; when i'm starting to play a .mpg-file through for example XINE, or VLC Media Player, whilst Amarok is still opened, there's sound from XINE or VLC. When i try playing the same file, while Amarok is closed, there's no sound from XINE or VLC. In XINE the "audio driver to use" is defined with ALSA. Audiostreams from Shoutcast i usually open through XMMS, this always works without any trouble (ALSA as output-plugin) Settings for the "Sound System" in "Configure Your Desktop" are as follows; "Enable the sound system" is selected, and under the tab "Hardware" the audiodevice selected is "Autodetect". It's all getting quiet confusing to me, and i spent alot of hours on this issue, and am very much in need for some feedback. Many thanks in advance
  2. Since installing the latest version of ATI-drivers on Mandriva 2006 problems are occuring during switching sessions. When switching to a new session and closing that second session, only a black screen with mouse-pointer returns. There's no way of getting back a graphical user-interface. The only thing remaining is resetting the system through the reset-button. Anyone else having this problem, and/or having a solution? Thanks in advance [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  3. Please be careful not uninstalling all fonts. That's what happened to me recently. After that i could not X get launched anymore, and had to do a re-install. isadora
  4. Thanks very much, that did it. isadora Marked the thread Solved - Artificial Intelligence
  5. Programs being minimized don't appear buttonwise in the panel. Something wrong with Kicker or DCOPserver??? Can anybody suggest me please? Thanks in advance isadora :woops:
  6. A good friend of mine would like to expand her small network by introducing an Apache webserver. The case is as follows: she uses a Thomson500-router to connect to the internet, this router is connected to a seconde router (Eminent), which is connected to her desktop-machine and the webserver. Those last two devices have ip-addresses (desktop) and (Apache webserver). They are going out through de gateway on the Eminent-router, This Eminent-router does have an "outside" ip-address and the default gateway is the at the Thomson-router. Going browsing and sending is no problemo, but her website cannot be reached. Is there anyone possible giving me any hint? Sure, it would have been much easier just using a hub, but this is the case. Thanks alot in advance, isadora
  7. Updates are issued most of time for security-issues. One commonly patched error is the so called "buffer overflow". For as far to my knowledge, this has something to do with memory twice given back by a closing application. How can this be of any problem on one's system? And is there any way monitoring for "buffer overflows" on the system? Not so much a problem, but just interested. Thanks everybody, and isadora greets with a happy and better 2005...
  8. Thanks iphitus, alot. I stop this thread, as far as it concerns me. Thanks to everybody for helping me out.
  9. That sounds quite complex to me. How to do???
  10. Starting my MDK10.1-box presents the following message during boot: mounting sysfs on /sys unmount initrd: device is busy [FAILED] Earlier i encountered problems with devfsd starting instead of udev. This new message appears since i managed this issue, by great help of some board-visitors. isadora
  11. Tried that out, the entry goes as follows: append="devfs=nomount acpi=ht nolapic resume=/dev/hde8 splash=silent" But after reboot still the message about failing to unmount initrd (device is busy) isadora
  12. It works great yet, beside one [FAILED] during boot: unmounting init.rd --device is busy Cosmetic????? isadora
  13. Did the reboot and udev is running!!!! Now i saw a [FAILED] coming through during boot. In /var/log/messages i found: Dec 9 19:22:36 isadora kernel: checking if image is initramfs...it isn't (no cpio magic); looks like an initrd Dec 9 19:22:36 isadora kernel: ACPI: Looking for DSDT in initrd ... not found! Does this need any attention??? Thanks very very muchfor assistance on the struggle devfsd&udev isadora
  14. Shortly; this is the problem yet [root@isadora dev]# service devfsd stop Stopping devfsd daemon: [ OK ] [root@isadora dev]# service udev start devfsd used instead of udev!!!
  15. On chkconfig --list udev followed: [root@isadora karel]# chkconfig --list udev udev 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off In the lilo.conf stands: append ="devfs=nomount acpi=ht resume=/dev/hde8 splash=silent" On service devfsd stop: [root@isadora karel]# service devfsd stop Stopping devfsd daemon: [ OK ] On removing dev.devfsd followed: [root@isadora dev]# rm --force .devfsd rm: cannot remove `.devfsd': Operation not permitted And concluding: [root@isadora dev]# chkconfig devfsd off [root@isadora dev]# It's some operation..... I could try removing the package of devfsd, but i'm not sure whether to return in good shape with udev after a reboot....... isadora
  16. Already went through that, but didn't bring me any closer. Now devfsd is unchecked in MCC, and in status stoppped (even after reboot), but it won.t let me remove it, neither forced, and logged in as root. When i bring up the TOP-command devfsd doesn't show up, udevd does. (?!?!?!?!?) isadora
  17. Yo Tigro, i try and try, but nothing happens, besides a message; [root@isadora dev]# rm --force .devfsd rm: cannot remove `.devfsd': Operation not permitted
  18. You are right Sunbeam Tiger, it wasn't in /etc but in /dev Nevertheless it won't allow me to delete it under root, access denied. Beside that, i did the top-command and don't see devfsd anymore appearing, instead i now see udevd. Through services in MCC i stopped devfsd, and started udev on boot. However during boot the message stiil appears, you are using devfsd instead of udev. I also changed /etc/lilo.conf as far as it had to do with this issue; i put a # before the line: append="devfs=mount acpi=ht resume=/dev/hde8 splash=silent" and made a new entry: append="acpi=ht resume=/dev/hde8 splash=silent" It's not i'm experiencing any problems whatsoever, but you know it's something annoying. If you have any other suggestions, i would be grateful. isadora

  20. During boot i see this message coming by; devfsd used instead of udev!!! Yesterday i upgraded my MDK10OE to 10.1OE. What is going wrong? Somewhere i read to remove a hidden file /etc/.devfsd, but this is not possible. I killed one time the process devfsd, but could not find anything going different on the system, though this only could be done with root. In /etc/mtab i find one line including: none /dev devfs rw 0 0 Can anyone please give me some idea of what to do, or just not. Many thanks in advance. isadora
  21. After having Windows2000 crashed, probably because of installing an automatic update of patches/fixes, i'm done with it. Since last summer i was working only on Mandrake10, later the Official version, and i'm getting more satisfied by the day. Because of mainly gaming the other os was useful, but that never will be of any loss. Now i intend to incorporate the windows-patitions into my linux-system, or otherwise; changing the now windows-partitions into ext2, likewise that for my Mandrake-environment. The partitions are defined as follows: Mount point: /mnt/win_c Device: hde1 DOS drive letter: C Type: NTFS Size: 29GB (15%) Mount point: /mnt/win_d Device: hde5 DOS drive letter: D Type: NTFS Size: 39GB (20%) Mount point: /mnt/win_e Device: hde6 DOS drive letter: E Type: NTFS Size: 39GB (20%) Mount point: / Device: hde7 Type: Linux native (Ext2) Size: 77GB (41%) Mount point: swap Device: hde8 Type: Linux swap Size: 1GB (0%) Formatted Mounted My main concern is the idea of damaging or losing the masterboot record (MRB), so that i won't even be able to get my Linux-box launched again. Near-future-plans are to transform my system to Mandrake 10.1, which could give reasons to leave everything as is right now. But nevertheless i would greatly appreciated to hear any comment or tips/ideas on this issue. Many thanks in advance. isadora [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  22. Found the solution already after reading the /var/log/xfree86.0.log Using config file: "/root/XF86Config-4", instead of Using config file: "/etc/X11/XF86Config-4" Renamed the XF86Config-4-file on /root and restarted X. Can now scroll again.
  23. Since updating Mandrake10OE yesterday, including some X-packages, the mousewheel won't function any longer. I went through xf86config several times, good exercise, but no better results. The wheel of the Cordless Logitech MouseMan Optical still isn't in any mood of being scrollable. I found the following section about the mouse in the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4; Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Mouse1" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2" Option "Device" "/dev/mouse" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" EndSection Can anybody give me some hint?
