  1. on knoppix is a program called qtparted.. it will let you resize you r windoer partition.. steps.. boot winders... remove swap file (diffrent ways for each version of winders....... but normally disable virtual memory..) defrag winders (even if it says there is no need) boot knoppix.. at the command prompt type xhost + sudo su qtparted... see http://qtparted.sourceforge.net/ for more info on qtparted..... p0s qtparted can do almost anything partition magic can do... plus its free
  2. just for giggles.. can you list your /etc/fstab we might fix it with out you having to eject.
  3. it sounds like mandrake is automounting the cdrom after the burn.. on your desktop you will probaly see the cd after its burned.. one of two fixes.. tell k3b to eject cd after burning.. or right click the cd when it shows up on the desk top and do a eject..

    also if you could post your dmesg from linux at a prompt type dmesg afterbooting and past it also how are you mounting your windows partition in fstab or manual .. if it automouts and you did not set it up post the /etc/fstab file then one of us can write of the format proceedure.
  6. the very first link (the one to the drive has a read me file and the newest driver for mandrake 10. do not use the one from your cd it may not work with mandrake 10 as it uses a 2.6 kernel and the cd is for the 2.4 kernel the read me looks strait forwared enough. untill you get to permissions. let us knwo ehn you get to that point and well help you.. here it is again in case you are wondering http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts-df...ms&submit=Go%21 download this file http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts-df...Y&ProductID=977 use this read me ftp://aiedownload.intel.com/df-support/6498/ENG/readme.txt here is the read me ReadMe file for the Intel® 536ep V9x DF modem Linux driver contents: 1.

Comments, ideas, problems, fixes ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. LICENSE IMPORTANT - read the file "LICENSE.txt" for the INTEL SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT BEFORE COPYING, INSTALLING OR USING. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2. Release Notes This release is not compatible with kernels prior to 2.4. This release supports 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernels. It is not compatible to 2.2.x kernels. The softmodem binary was compiled with gcc version 3.2 v92 support added: modem on hold AT command set, PCM upstream, v44, and quick connect are implemented. Linux Compatability tests are performed on the latest or previous versions of the following distributions: Mandrake, RedHat, and SuSE ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 3. INSTALLATION Prerequisites: 1. root access 2. bash shell to run install scripts 3. an Intel536ep modem 4. KERNEL SOURCE HEADERS FOR THE KERNEL YOU ARE RUNNING. (found on your distribution's CD) 6 steps to install 1. login as ROOT 2. extract the archive into a directory with "tar -zxvf <archivename>.tgz" 3. cd into the directory it created. 4. Type: make clean 5. Type: make 536 6. Type: make install This will create a /dev/modem device file. This file is used as an interface to modem by all applications: minicom, kpppd, efax, etc. Please configure the applications to use /dev/modem if neccessary. The installation script has been designed for the following distributions release versions Mandrake-release SuSE-release Redhat-release Fedora Core 2 -release Unknown distributions install modules and utilities but will not install boot scripts!. Please examine the 536ep-inst and 536ep-boot scripts if you have a different distribution. The driver registers itself as character device major number 240, minor number 1. ATTENTION: if the driver compiles but the script just wont work for you. Here are the bare minimum steps to get your modem to work. 0. log in as root. 1. insmod -f Intel536.o (Intel536.ko for kernel 2.6) 2. you can start "hamregistry &" at this point if you wish. 3. rm /dev/536ep 4. mknod /dev/536ep c 240 1 (note "240" is the default, if it does not work see what /proc/devices says 536ep's major number is) 5. ln -s /dev/536ep /dev/modem 6. start a comm application like minicom and use the modem. 7. see section 3 (International Users) for info on setting the correct country settings. Uninstallation. Linux modem driver is started by the boot script 536-boot. The script location is distribution specific, usually /etc/init.d. So to uninstall the modem, delete this file, and stop the modules using command: rmmod Intel537 make uninstall does this for redhat. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 4. FILE DESCRIPTIONS 536-inst installation script to install 536 modules and supporting files files copied to /lib/modules/(kernel-version)/misc Intel536.o (Intel536.ko) modem driver files copied to /etc/rc.d/... (path differes per distribution) 536-boot boot scrip to start and stop driver module files copied to /usr/sbin hamregistry hamregistry is the "registry" like tool that the modem uses to get and store persistant data such as county info and profile strings. files copied to /etc hamregistry.bin file that stores the initial persistant data for modem. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 5. INTERNATIONAL USERS hamregistry will store the last country setting you set in the modem. in minicom (or equivalent comm application) the commmand to change country setting is "AT+GCI=" the command takes a t.35 country code in hexadecimal. below is a list of currently supported t.35 country codes. you can also put this "AT" command in the init string of the comm application you are using. if you are a CTR-21 country I think you should be able to choose a CTR-21 country on the list and be ok. but that's no guarantee. The same goes for countries that are "USA" compatable. (this table also exist in the source file wwh_dflt.c that ships with the Intel536ep driver) country code t.35 code --------------------------- USA 1 B5 KOR 82 61 ECU 593 35 BOL 591 14 CHL 56 15 COL 57 27 PAN 507 85 PER 51 88 SAU 966 98 THA 66 A9 VNM 84 BC SWE 46 A5 DNK 45 31 FIN 358 3C NOR 47 82 ISL 354 52 IRL 353 57 ISR 972 58 LIE 423 68 ESP 34 A0 TUR 90 AE DEU 49 42 AUT 43 0A CHE 41 A6 CYP 357 2D GRC 30 46 ITA 39 59 LUX 352 69 NLD 31 7B GBR 44 B4 BEL 32 0F FRA 33 3D PRT 351 8B PAK 92 84 JPN 81 00 RUS 7 B8 AUS 61 09 MYS 60 6C CHN 86 26 HKG 852 50 SGP 65 9C NZL 64 7E ARG 54 07 BRA 55 16 MEX 52 73 TWN 886 E3 IND 91 53 PHL 63 89 IDN 62 54 BHS 103 0B BRB 104 0E BMU 105 12 GTM 502 49 HTI 509 4E HND 504 4F JAM 1 5B NIC 505 7F PRY 595 87 PRI 121 8C SUR 597 A3 TTO 117 AC URY 598 B7 VEN 58 BB ZWE 263 C4 GUY 592 4D EST 372 E0 HUN 36 51 SVN 386 E2 ARE 971 B3 SVK 421 2E CAN 107 14 CRI 506 1B DOM 110 33 SLV 503 37 GMB 220 41 GIB 350 45 POL 48 8A EGY 20 36 CZE 420 2E ZAF 27 9F GUF 594 E1 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 6. Thanks to the following beta testers for their valuable input and suggestions during the HaM 333 beta test between January 2 - 26, 2001 and those who submitted bug reports for Intel 536 driver Dorian S. Araneda Sean Walbran Rob Clark Marvin Stodolsky Dominique Duval Roman Krais Ulrich Guenther Marcelino Viana Pinheiro Thomas S. Iversen Jospeh Teichman Michel Bartolone (MED) Ramon Gonzalez Montoiro Ryoji Kawagishi Torsten Vogel "jandro" Ian Carr-de Avelon Helga Weindl Ed Casas Bernhard Hoelcker Alexander "Sasha" Voytov Albert Woo Andrey Vitsenko Peter Hirschmann Tom Lane and all of the helpful Linux HaM and 536 modem users around the world and at www.linmodems.org ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 7. Security issues the 536-inst and 536-boot file install the files and device nodes as root for the owner and group. this will cause problems for those who want to user the modem to dialout using an account other than root. In SuSE, "dialout" is the group used to install the files and device node. This way, anyone belonging to the "dialout" group can use the modem to dialout. (take a look at /etc/group) I did not want the script to allow full access of the modem to everyone without "root" knowing. Edit the 536-boot and 536-inst scripts to fit your needs. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 8. Compile issues a. this driver will now compile with the this path: /lib/modules/<kernel version>/build/include the 2.4.4+ kernels says to copy the /boot/vmlinuz.version.h over to the kernel build path. I have the makefile do this if this file exists. You must install the kernel source code anyways. It should be on your distribution's CD. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 9. What is the Hamregistry? The hamregistery is an application that stores data for the 536ep driver onto the disk. hamregistry stores information from the driver that needs to persist from reboot to reboot such as you current country setting. The 536ep-inst install script and the 536-boot script start this utility automatically for you. If this tool is not present when the driver gets used your profile, quickconnect, and current country setting will not be saved but the driver should still work fine. The only step that would need to be done is to make sure that the driver is set to the correct country with at+gci= (see section 5) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 10. What's v92 and v44? a. modem on hold: (ISP and your ISP dialer must also support this) This will allow you to pause your ppp connection to answer an incoming call. You will need call waiting, dialer, and ISP support for this to work. When you are done with the call you can resume your ppp connection without having to reconnect. The AT command set for this feature exist in the driver. b, pcm upstream: (ISP must also support this, as of version 4.32 I dont know any ISP's that do) This will allow faster upload speeds. to enable: at+pig=0 to disable: at+pig=1 c. quickconnect: Once you make a call to a v92 modem, your phoneline characteristics are stored. Whenever you make a new v92 connection it will use this data to make the call negotiation quicker (approx 10 seconds). to enable: at+pqc=0 at+pss=0 to disable: at+pss=2 d. v44: (ISP must also support this) A better compression protocol than v42 which can give you better transfer speeds. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 11. The Hamregistry tool The hamregistry tool is used to provide persistance of settings across reboots. The haminst and hamboot scripts automatically setup and start the hamregistry background task for the modem to use. The hamregistry tool has command line arguments for those who wish to customize persistant settings. To use these command lines you must first stop the driver with "bash hamboot stop". Once the driver has been stopped you may run hamregistry with one of these arguments to store into the /etc/hamregistry.bin persistance file: (supply value for items in < >) -mfg <Modem manufactures name> -mod <Modem model name> -hookflash <0,1,2> hookflash method: 0=(default)without tone 1=with tone 2=reserved -v92rptopt <0,1> control v92 reporting: 0=PCM upsteam only 1=(default) all v92 -gpio_lpohd <0,1> Handset Hook detection: 0=not supported 1=(default)supported -current_country <t.35 code> This info is written to the /etc/hamregistry.bin file. If hamregistry.bin exists along with the installation files, haminst will copy it to /etc/hamregistry.bin when installing the modem. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 12. Known Bugs/Issues a. Be aware that the build replaces your /lib/module/<kernver>//build/include/linux/version.h file with /boot/vmlinuz.version.h (this is what Linus T. told me to do with a compiler error) b. There may be an incompatibility with DevFS. The 536ep device may be located in /dev/tts/536ep instead of /dev/536ep. Be aware of this and link /dev/modem to the 536ep device that corresponds to your setup. c. Currently there is a problem with driver and SuSE 7.2 ppp connections. I have been able to get ppp connection with bellsouth by calling this bash script and wvdial config section: ------my script---------------------- #! /bin/sh /usr/sbin/pppd -detach lock asyncmap 00000000 \ defaultroute debug /dev/modem 115200 \ ipparam ppp0 linkname ppp0 \ noauth \ connect "/usr/bin/wvdial --chat bellsouth" ------my /etc/wvdial.conf section --- [Dialer bellsouth] Modem = /dev/modem Baud = 115200 Init1 = ATZ Inti2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 Dial Command = ATDT Phone = 9777888 Username = myloginname Password = mysecretpassword #Ask Password = 1 Stupid Mode = 0 ------------------ wvdial.conf can be created automatically: wvdialconf wvtest.txt Found a modem on /dev/537, using link /dev/modem in config.

  7. http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts-df...ms&submit=Go%21 in case you don;t have the driver. as for maknig it dial you can use the command line echo "atd7777777" > /dev/modem (if simlinked) should work. (I think its been a while) or you can get minicom or kppp (should be under internet) I ma not sure at what stage you are having problems. so I included some articals .. I would like to see this work for you. so if you could .. Did you install a driver? if so does it show up linked when you do a lsmod? if so the dialing up is covered in some of the following ... if not let us knwo so we can help with installing the driver. more information http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialAOL.html (for AOL) http://howtos.linux.com/howtos/Modem-HOWTO-12.shtml https://secure.linuxports.com/howto/ppp/ http://www.start-linux.com/topics/topic_54.php http://www.bu.edu/pcsc/modem/configure/linuxppp-howto.html
  8. the question is not can you put linux in the xbox. linux willnot let you play pireted games. linux willnot play any xbox games at least nto until the xbox emulater id done. the only thing haveing linux will do is one you have to redo the bios. some bios will let your xbox read cdr's (again linux has nothing to do with this its a bios thing) I have linux on 4 xboxs I use for my myth tv front ends. http://www.anandtech.com/linux/showdoc.aspx?i=2271 see above for modchips. agin if your goal is to pirate Xbox games the Bios a bios chip or mod chip is your only way. linux on xbox faq http://www.xbox-linux.org/FAQ sample I installed a modchip into my Xbox, and now it says "Xbox Linux Clean BIOS", with a link to your website. How do I run copied games now? Many modchips ship with the "Xbox Linux Clean BIOS", because it is the only working fully legal content of a modchip. This BIOS will not run copies and we have nothing to do with these modchips. Ask your modchip vendor. Is your project illegal? Doesn't the DMCA forbid all this? The DMCA forbids circumventing copy protection, but this is not our goal. We develop an alternative operating system for the Xbox gaming console. A side product could be the ability to run unsigned code, but this alone does not make it possible to play pirated copies of games. Nevertheless, if you live inside the USA or another country with a similar legislation, and you work on Xbox hacking rather than on Linux developing, you can of course join the project anonymously. If you are either a lawyer or a Microsoft representative, you are of course welcome to talk to us about any changes. Read on here (http://xbox-linux.org/docs/legal.html). Aren't mod chips illegal? Not as long as you do not use them for piracy. We now also offer Cromwell, an alternative ROM that contains no Microsoft code and won't permit running pirated games. Cromwell is able to install and boot Linux on your Xbox with no question about illegality. Will I lose my warranty when running Linux? Microsoft is very clear about this: Yes. But it isn't that easy, because there is a difference between the "warranty by law" and the "insurance of the manufacturer" (commonly called "warranty"): * "Warranty by law" means that if the product already had a flaw when you bought it, you have 24 months (in the EU) to return it. If the product breaks within this time and you did nothing wrong that could have caused it, it must have been because of a flaw in the product, and the manufacturer is bound to replace it. In the EU, within the first 6 months, the manufacturer has to prove that it was the user's fault, if they don't want to replace it; afterwards, the user has to prove that it was the manufacturer's fault, if he wants it to be replaced. * "Insurance of the manufacturer" ("warranty") is an insurance of the product which the manufacturer provides. They can add any set of rules that will void this insurance. The Xbox manual for example says that you have a 1 year warranty, but that you void it if you open the Xbox or run software other than games on it. This means that you void the "warranty"/"insurance" if you open the Xbox or run Linux on it, but it does not necessarily mean that Microsoft is no longer bound to the "warranty by law" if you do this. We know of at least one (unopened) Xbox with Linux that has been repaired for free. If you have your own experiences concerning this topic, especially if you had problems, please add the info here. Some countries might of course be different. If you can add anything to this topic, please add the info here and to end this thread ... if you what to know about hacking the Xbox to run linux or just moding it to do what ever... that is ok but never ask on this board how to hack the Xbox to play pireted games.. some of us work places that make it a problem for people asking the question ..hint hint nudge nudge.
  9. linux will not help you at all. .as a matter of principle they made sure that the bios you load with mechassult to put on linux will not let you to keep MS from shuting down their site. you need a mod chip see anandtech web page for infor on mod chips. you can turn your Xbox into a media center thought.

    "it says the resources are low not sure wgat that means. my hdd is 4.8. and ive just installed another 128 of ram which gives me 200mgs of ram." That could also include bus bandwidth. if its a PII system you are limited on howmuch data can go over the bus system. that is not counted in a windows resource but it is in a linux system "would i be able to keep in touch with you linux people on my progress . and of course ile need your help." Yep
  11. I got it to compile after I was told that the user addition on a harddrive partition is hte same as noexec so I had to add exec to my fstab. as for you rproblem , I don't know why it will not open I imported all my adat HD24 wav files. and started mixing.. I need some plugins. I need a compresser at least. I can't figure out hwo to adjust effect yet but have only spen 5 min on it. your jackd problem I had but a pkill jackd fixed it. I think a script to start jackd then ardour then kill jackd after ardour is done woudl be best and I'll post it after I write it.

    ok I think I know what is going on. you boot the cd adn it startes the cd and says searching for atapi cdrom (or in english not BIOS speek looking for ide cdrom) are you booing this from a usb cdrom, if not is this cd rom the master drive on ide channel 2? does it give you a mandrake boot... in other words does it say something like mandrake 10.1 boot a lot of other stuff then boot: if not you may have a bad cd. (not drive but bad cd) if it boots to the boot: options after anouncing mandrake before launching the GUI then you may have two things .. it may be acpi (ACPI - Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) and since your board is a litle old, mandrake may need that turned off. I may be wrong but I think the coammand at the boot: mandrake no acpi may fix the problem. .. all mandrake users please respond to make sure I am correct.
  13. iccaros


    what do you mean by "it dosent detect my cdrom" did the cdrom not boot, did you install but now see no cdrom any information would help
  14. if you are running mandrake the ardour site talks about a site with the rpms I could not get the source code to compile on my system. but I run gentoo so I just added hte package to my package.keywords. for the naem in portage and emerged ardour. It needs jack with is a sound server made for audio recodring. so before you can start the program you have to run jackd -d alsa then start the program. as for the other it comes with a binnary that gentoo can not run. (or my kernel can't run). but chech out the boards.. people running mandrake and suse have said it runs by adding some directorys. I can make it run under wine.. I just have to change my screen resolution first to 800x600 or else it messes up my screen. bu tunder wine skale runs like a charm and is useable so if the linux version will not work try that. I'm going to go back and try N-track (what I used to use under winders after I dumped cakewalk) in wine.. if you what to here soem of the stuff I did on N-track adn my Adats go to www.chemicalcomfort.com its me old band (disbanded 3 months ago) you can even see my ugly face..
  15. Ardour ---- is a digital audio workstation. You can use it to record, edit and mix multi-track audio. Produce your own CD's. Mix video soundtracks. Experiment with new ideas about music and sound. Generate sound installations for 12 speaker gallery shows. Have Fun. http://ardour.org/ This in is for tictoc5150 , I have been looking for this also as I have 2 adat hd24 trackrecoders and I need a mixdow base. http://www.skale.org/ another linux muti-track audio program. both of the above run on winders and linux with the first also being ported to Mac.

  19. You're right of course iccaros I forgot initially where I was posting...........my bad:-) i don't really care. Its I knew people would be confused, even though I think 99% also run winders and the information is good for them to have. I would have posted it in both with the tag line in the linux forum , for all you cheeting windows using still stuck on outlook should be using linux people.. but that is me.. I don't have many friends... who use winders. ... anyways.

    Linspire contributed nearly a half million dollars to CodeWeavers, other 3rd-party developers, and our own in-house engineers to help get Microsoft Office to run on Linux with WINE. 100% of all the code we developed, as well as any code we've paid to have developed and continue to develop, was contributed back to the open source WINE tree. this is spine . they bought Crossover licenses and Codeweavers had MS office running before Linspire ever exsisted. and the lat part "100% of all the code we developed, as well as any code we've paid to have developed and continue to develop, was contributed back to the open source WINE tree." of course its GPL.. they still blow there horn for something accordingto the codeweaves techs I converse with for work, they did not do. this is from the codeweavers guys talking about xandros adn linsire(lindows) http://www.consultingtimes.com/articles/co...ersxandros.html CT: We’ll get back to that. How does your relationship with Xandros differ from your abortive affair win Lindows? JW: I feel that it’s a healthy relationship. Our relationship with Xandros is one based on two equals for mutual benefit. We were unable to construct such a relationship with Lindows. CT: I thought they were going to help support Wine and put developers on it? JW: Frankly, I was just as excited to work with Lindows as I am to work with Xandros. I think this vision of a Windows-compatible OS is fantastic. It’s why I’m here, it’s why I get up in the morning. When you think about it, it’s a very difficult situation. Because from the perspective of the OS -- Lindows and Xandros -- with Wine being free -- it’s easy for them to try to squeeze us out of the picture -- or it’s tempting for them to do that. It’s hard for them to step up and craft a relationship that works for everyone. We were unable to craft such a deal with Lindows. It took us a very long time to craft such a deal with Xandros. So it’s not an easy arrangement or an easy relationship. there is a free version of xandros with out the l pay-for licens on bit-torrent.

    AFAIK Lindows provides financial support to various projects. I've seen WINE, Mozilla, and Reiser4 mentioned specifically. Ah, here. yes after they got help with legal troubles from Microsoft. they inturn helped. as for the developors of wine they bought crossover for there OS. I don't see that as support as much as wanting good MS office compatability. I dislike Lindows will all I have in me. I don't like that they charge you for updates to free software. Even Red Hat the updates are free it the managment that cost you money. the RPM are relased on the cvs server. (I think they are source but two command is all that is need to maek a source rpm to a useable rpm) plus lindows is a insecure os. they have you make a root account and then you use that root account like a user account.. yuck.. crap.. they don't get it..

    I can't get the link to download, I woudl recomend staying away from any "linux" distrobution that only has a pay version. first almost all linux distro have the same software and all linux distros have the same ability to run the same equipment. what right do they have in making it pay only when they did noting but put some software together that is free and come up with artwork.. they are not "open source" they are propitary in there ethics, and unless its the only choice for the job pick open. examples of how this could be done. red hat has fedora it gives away and if you need a enterprise level adn can not afford Red Hat you have Whitebox that Red Hats help but does not support. mandrake has the community version that is free. Codeweavers makes crossover office for sale only but are the same developers who put everything back into the wine project for free transgamming has cedega (wineX) that run MS 3D games like War craft and Halflife 2. this is for sale because some of the encryption codes they have to pay for to dedcrypt the windows copy protection. but they have the CVS version for free (but you have to find the encryption stuff, its on the web and most games really do not use it ) I would stayaway from Lindows or what ever they are called now, they return nothing to the opensource community. and I would stay away from Lycrois as I can not find one return to the community. neither company has contributed one line of code back to the developers.. they just take form others. Plus Lycrois is made by a X MS manager. maby he's still in MS mode. sorry marty I can't help much more butI wil look into the other distro you named. I get the feeling its your windmodem you have problems with most, what brand is it? intel has now posted driver for linux for all their winmodem. if its a intel chipset that may help.
  23. " I got thunerbird on windows!" the point is not that you have it on widows, its good to have it on winders.. its that this is a linux board . my wife uses it on linux and windoers.. but it only only replaces outlook on winders.. we need some more topics,
  24. hitest, I think the quseten on poting this to a linux board is who is running outlook on linux? no twho is running thunderbird, I like thuderbird on winders inplace of outlook but unless someone is running crossover or wine thuderbird would not be a replacement for outlook on linux correct?
  25. I do at work under crossover office but its connected to exchange servers at work and thuderbird will not work. but this should go to the winders page.
