  1. Partial Fix. Fooled around in Pavucontrol and with some settings, and now it works on Line Out only. Which is weird, cant control the volume so.... I donno :) Wonder if I should roll back to 2009
  2. Hi, Im having problems getting my sound to work on either my Soundblaster live 5.1 card or my onboard Via ac97 card (driver via8237) I have tried it with both cards on, with only the soundblaster plugged in and the bios setting for the Ac97 off, and I have tried it with the soundblaster unplugged and the AC97 turned on. No combinations work. I am using the new Mandriva 2009.1, I am starting to think this is a bug? KMix seems to get the drivers working just fine, I see two tabs, one for each card.

I tried changing settings in Pavucontrol, no change Anyone know whats going on? I looked at this thread (https://mandrivausers.org/index.php?showtopic=83944) which seemed to be the same problem, but it doesn't work for me.
  3. Hi, have a thinkpad x61 tablet here. I cant get the volume buttons to work. I installed tpb, but when I go into tools-> thinkpad configuration I get an error about /dev/thinkpad not existing. How do I get them to work with the OSD and stuff? I have gotten it working before with another top. But no luck here.
  4. Hi, I followed this site to get my pen to work. Works great now. Now I want to get the screen to rotate when I hit the rotate button on my x61 tablet. I followed the instructions to make the file xrotate. But whenever I run it, X crashes and I have to relogin. No rotatation either :) Anyone know what Im doing wrong or if there is another way?
  5. Got it working. I connected through a wire, and did a whole bunch of installs. Bascally everything that was ibm, thinkpad or wireless related. After I installed 10 things.... it worked Thanks for the help everyone
  6. That command gives me the same name as the GUI does - Intel Corp Pro/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN Network card. Does this get us any closer to finding out why I cant find any networks? Thanks for your help!
  7. ifconfig -a This command returns some info from 5 interfaces, eth0,lo,panu, wlan0 and wmaster0. But it doesnt tell me the cards name/type. In my "Network Center" it lists the card as Intel Corp Pro/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN Network Gard iwlist wlan0 scan This command returns wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning : Network is down
  8. Hi I just installed the newest Mandriva on my Lenovo X61 Thinkpad Tablet. Problem is I cant see any networks from my wireless card. It gets the driver installed by default and it even seems like the driver is installed properly, but when I search for networks I see none. Any advice? Hanez
  9. Hi, I can't believe how complicated vnc is on linux..... wow I have been playing with this junk for 2 days... But anyways :) All I want is a vncserver for a local network that lets me control the MAIN terminal (terminal 0), I use KDE. I want the VNC user to use the same desktop as the monitor. I have found vncserver incredibly complicated. The KDE one (krfb) works well, but my windows pc seems to not lick connecting to it, I get weirdo errors, "rect to big", "connection restarts", ect ect. Rfbdrake actually works quite well. But it doesn't have an option to start on startup. Is there anyway to tell it to autostart and autoconfig the password? Thanks! Hanes
  10. I am trying to play this guitar hero type game and I can't get the keyboard to work. I have been noticing this problem with lots of flash games, its like it just doesn't register the keyboard in Linux. Anyone else have this problem The game is here - Guitar Hero flash game Thanks!

  11. I think you are thinking of suspend to ram, I mean hibernate as in suspend to DISK. So the os takes an image and stores it on its own partition, then when the os loads next time, it takes that image and loads it. You can have two OS's each hibernating at the same time, as long as each OS stores there image seperately. Windows works like this on the laptop in question, if I hibernate from windows, next time I can choose to load linux, but the next time I chose windows, it loads the image. I think what is happening is that the mandriva hibernate script is sending a command to grub to autoselect (I see grub load, it just doesnt let me choose). I guess no one knows of a fix?
  12. When my laptop hibernates it disables grub, so next time i cant decide if i want to go windows or linux, it goes straight into linux... anyway to fix this? I like hibernating because it makes boot up real quick, but i ALWAYS want to see grub... There must be some config file for this... anyone know it?
  13. Hi, I have a thinkpad t42, I had it all setup for mdv2006 but when I reinstalled 2007 I have had a hard time getting configure-thinkpad to work. When I try and run it, it says that /dev/thinkpad does not exist. Everythin works fine with my laptop except OSD, I want to see the volume level ect when I change it. Note that the buttons work, I just do not see any display. I remember configure-thinkpad had these options, but as I said, I cannot start it due to /dev/thinkpad missing. Does anyone know how to fix this?
  14. Yes it works. Thanks a lot. It also really pisses me off. How many years has sun had to get this thing right? I remember how excited I was when I was learning Java, thinking that I was learning a professional and well thought out language. Now, I see the bug reports grow, the lag persist (remember when Sun was touting that Java was fast?!) I gotta find another language to teach :) Anyways, thanks for the help.
  15. I teach Java, and my students ALWAYS bug me about this, and, they never click on the browser... so its a good tip. BUT Yeah, I have clicked and clicked and clicked... i dont get it
  16. Hi, Im making an quick program in java. It all seems to work, but the applets never get keyEvents.... For example, the code below is an applet that when ran, should move a red dot left or right depending on key presses. But for some reason in linux, NO KEY EVENTS for the applet at all. In windoes or mac it works fine. I have tested this with konqueror, appletviewer and firefox.. no dice. Anyone know whats going on? example code import javax.swing.*; import java.awt.*; import java.awt.event.*; import java.awt.image.BufferedImage; public class Bubbles extends JApplet implements KeyListener { int msg = 0; public void init() { msg = 10; addKeyListener(this); } //this function happens when someone hits a button public void keyPressed(KeyEvent e) { System.out.println("SFDF"); msg = e.getKeyCode(); repaint(); } public void keyReleased(KeyEvent e) { System.out.println("SFDF"); repaint(); } public void keyTyped(KeyEvent e) { System.out.println("SFDF"); msg = e.getKeyCode(); repaint(); } public void paint(Graphics g) { g.drawString("code = " + msg, 20,20); } }
  17. thanks, this worked fine mencoder in.rmvb -oac mp3lame -lameopts preset=128 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=1200 -ofps 25 -of avi -o out.avi but first I had to urpmi real-codecs
  18. Hi, I have a couple files I just downloaded and I want to switch them to avi or mpeg. Anyone know an easy way to switch rmvb in linux? Hanes
  19. I am always confused with the file dialogs, sometimes I change an icon and it will be one type of dialog, next thing I know I do the same thing, and its a different type of dialog. I think its the KDE and Gnome Dialog, I use KDE and like the KDE style. Is there anyway to force my programs to use it exclusively? [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  20. Is there any way to backup a dvd in Linux? I have used wine and DVDShrink, but it is quite annoying. I am looking for one app, to rip and burn, not a 12 step solution. I have read some guides that are quite a bit more annoyining then my current method: Step 1: Reboot into windows Step 2: Rip and burn all in one step with DVD Shrink I have used DVD Shrink in linux but you then have to burn the disk with growiso or K3B. Just wondering if there is an easier way.
  21. dont try, its always a disaster. and if the only reason is for a couple new features and a bug fix or two I would try another distro or wait till mdk2007
  22. nope, but after a reboot, i still get the same thing
  23. I installed the Mandriva rpm of KTorrent from http://ktorrent.org/index.php?page=downloads Prior to that I uninstalled the Mandriva version of KTorrent with "urpme ktorrent" and "urpme libktorrent". I tried to run ktorrent and I get this error, [hanes@localhost ~]$ ktorrent ktorrent: error while loading shared libraries: libktorrent.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Anyone know why I am getting this error? Hanes
  24. Well when you need answers, go to the source I guess. I found some good advice at the official Samba HowTo Here is my working smb.conf [global] workgroup = Workgroup netbios name = Baulz security = share [data] comment = Data path = /mnt/data/Share force user = guestpc force group = users read only = No guest ok = Yes Then all I had to do was make a user called guestpc, and chmod the directories properly. If anyone has similar problems here is a link to the page that helped... http://us2.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-.../FastStart.html
  25. man, this is aggravating. Swat is a really confusing app, after you find out you have to connect on localhost:901, you are quickly presented with a very unintuitive menu. There are plenty of values, and one is left guessing on what to type in them, for example there is a textbox called Guest, i entered "yes", I entered "Hell Yes", I entered "Yes Please work what the #$@$ is the problem?", none of these seemed to work as expected. I have tried the mcc "Manage samba partitions" option. I add a share, it kicks me out of mcc (crashes). I turn mcc back on, my share wasnt added, I repeat until my head explodes. I have erased the "valid users" line and still get bupkiss... anyone got any solutions over here?
