  1. I have a toshiba notebook without option boot from USB port. But I´d like to know if it´s possible to pass the controll to a external HD with Linux installed on it. Maybe throught a boot manager I'd get send the control to this device... Anyone has some idea? Thanks.
  2. I have Mandriva LE 2005 instaled in my machine and the sound is OK. But I have notice that when I use applications with sound like Kaffeine (DVD) and after that I try to use the game Unreal Tournament, it doens´t have any sound. What it could be?
  3. Ok, I´ve created the node whith the command : mknod -m 777 /dev/hdd4 b 22 68 and it works. But now I can´t mount the zip device in normal user mode, only with the root. the error: device /dev/hdd4 doens´t exists
  4. pardon, this is my output whith ide-floppy loaded: major minor #blocks name 3 0 19551168 hda 3 1 522081 hda1 3 2 1 hda2 3 5 13823901 hda5 3 6 5205028 hda6 3 64 20359080 hdb 3 65 20354323 hdb1 22 64 98304 hdd
  5. This is my cat/proc/partitions output: major minor #blocks name 3 0 19551168 hda 3 1 522081 hda1 3 2 1 hda2 3 5 13823901 hda5 3 6 5205028 hda6 3 64 20359080 hdb 3 65 20354323 hdb1 There is no hdd4.
  6. I got the same error: mount -t msdos /dev/hdd4 /mnt/zip The special device doens´t exists I think that I need to create the device or something like that.
  7. I'loaded the ide-floppy module and inserted the disk. The result of command fdisk -l /dev/hdd was: Disk /dev/hdd: 100 MB, 100663296 bytes 64 heads, 32 sectors/track, 96 cylinders Units = cilindros of 2048 * 512 = 1048576 bytes Dispositivo Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/hdd4 * 1 96 98288 6 FAT16 So, I tried to mount the device manually like this: mount -tfat16 /dev/hdd4 /mnt/zip/ error: o tipo de sistema de arquivos fat16 não é suportado pelo kernel mount /dev/hdd4 /mnt/zip/ error: the especial device /dev/hdd4 doesn't exists
  8. I´ve tried fdisk -l but it didn´t show anything about my ZiP drive (the disk was inserted). Look at my dmesg: hdd: IOMEGA ZIP 100 ATAPI, ATAPI FLOPPY drive hdd: set_drive_speed_status: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error } hdd: set_drive_speed_status: error=0x04 { AbortedCommand } My fstab: /dev/hda6 / ext3 defaults 1 1 /dev/hda5 /home ext3 defaults 1 2 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom iso9660 user,iocharset=iso8859-1,noauto,ro,exec 0 0 none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850 0 0 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/hdb1 /usr/local ext3 defaults 1 2 /dev/hda1 swap swap defaults 0 0 the device /dev/hdd4 doens´t exists
  9. I have installed Mandrive LE 2005 and it isn´t identifying my IDE zip drive. At control painel it indicate that device is OK, but when I put some disk in the drive, I can´t access it. Can anyone help me?
  10. I´ve installed vmware in Mandrake 10.1 and it´s worked very well. But when I turn the computer on or just reboot it, vmware ask me to reconfigure (vmware-config) to go on. What can it be? thanks
