I was trying to make the mic to work on openSUSE 11.3 x64 (it's a headset's mic). At the beginning I thought it was just a mater of plugging the mic on, as it's the earphones'case, but didn't work. Then I found this link: Skype, KDE4, OpenSUSE 11.3 and PulseAudio Doesn't sound bad, but I also use Wine and Pulseaudio is said to be not compatible with it.
So, if Pulseaudio is enabled with setup-pulseaudio --enable, how do I disable it should I find problems with Wine? Is Pulseaudio really needed to make the mic to work, or it depends on what I want to use it for?
Code: ./kernelversion.c:13:30: fatal error: linux/utsrelease.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. Makefile.inc:81: *** Cannot detect kernel version - please check compiler and KERNELPATH. Stop.
I would do a little more homework, but I already did a lot only to get stuck here, and I need to solve this sooner rather than later.
I have already: installed devel and desktop-devel and given up about 350mb of diskspace to
Code: zypper in -t pattern devel_C_C++
Only to still not have the make function available. If that install was unecessary, I'm hoping there's a simple uninstall version of that line.
Reading what it's saying, it sounds like I may have all the right kit but it needs a nudge in the direction of the kernel??
After been convinced by an exchange student from Nashville I am hosting here in Germany I went into openSuse 11.2. I installed and got openSuse 11.2 to work. I must admit, that I was very impressed. It is more than 10 years that I tried a UNIX system and Linux was quite a cryptic thing. First some additional drivers had to be installed to get MP3 to play. However Internet access was possible with cable but the system failed in recognizing the WLAN.
Here is my system: HP Compaq nc4000 OpenSuse 11.2 (i586) KDE 4.3.1 "release 6" Wireless Network Atheros AR5212
I have looked through some posts but must admit, that I did not understand much of that. I Am willing to learn, however I do not see myself compiling some drivers. If you could tell me which URL could be used for dloading or installing via Yest, If more sophisticated solutions, than I will have to ask my student to do it for me, but he should learn German and learn more about German lifestile in German Bars.
yesterday I upgraded of my ubuntu release from 10.04 to 10.10 and now, when I plug my mp3 creative zen player it doesn't work.The same player works very well with 10.04 and I can upload my mp3s directly from rythmnbox using drag&drop.Here my /var/log/syslog

i just installed a new wireless device from encore electronics(802.11g Wireless PCI Adapter ENLWI-G2) but it deadlocks openSUSE 11.2 when i start the networking module in YaST. It also deadlocks(Freezes up) when i tried reinstalling suse. can someone help me, has anyone got this device to work? I also tried Fedora 12... it manages to see my wlan and posts the mac address of the card.. but it also locks up while trying to use it or configure it
There is a basic driver for it. I was wondering if anyone got it to work. Or is there another card that has been used successfully, especially with recording from a microphone. I am getting poor input from the mic source. Levels are low and broken up. Extensive research has pointed to ALSA/PulseAudio not being able to fine tune all sound cards. I am using the onboard currently, an ALC262.
In the meantime I was tempted to set the priorities higher for sound in general, in other words tweak ALSA and PA. Reason being is that many across a few distros have problems when resources are squeezed, like the times when proc load is at or near 100%, for example. I do not know how to tweak sound. Does anyone know? I still want to try the Titanium since it could be utilized in 7 (ouch) as a luxury for recording "what you hear", and for superior sound reproduction as well.
I recently upgraded my SuSE 11.2 to KDE4.4 from "download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.2/". Most things run fine, however the "Akonadi Control Center" does not appear in my KDE "System Settings". Akonadi itself seems to run, at least Contact uses it for the addresses.
I searched for all "akonadi" packages, but I didn't find ones which I do not have installed.
I am running OpenSuSE 11.2 64bit which was upgraded from 11.1. When I moved to OS 11.2, I found out the hard way about VMWare not working. Then tried to remove it and fix it myself.
When I try to run the config script... Code: parents:~ # vmware-config.pl Unable to find the answer LIBDIR in the installer database (/etc/vmware/locations). You may want to re-install VMware Server. Execution aborted. parents:~ #
When I try to install vmware-server Code: parents:~ # rpm -i VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64.rpm package VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64 is already installed
When I try to upgrade vmware-server Code: parents:~ # rpm -U VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64.rpm package VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64 is already installed
When I try to force install vmware-server Code: parents:~ # rpm --force VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64.rpm rpm: only installation, upgrading, rmsource and rmspec may be forced
Other than rebuilding my box, how can I recover from this?
Has anyone succeeded in coercing either banshee or rhythmbox to play "restricted" media? On my 11.3 install, I have all the packages from the "one-click" install that takes 49 clicks to find on the new wiki structure ... Playback works correctly in mplayer, gnome-mplayer, and smplayer. VLC works also, ... yawn ....
This is the third consecutive release [COLOR="rgb(0, 0, 0)"](AT BEST)[/COLOR] where this stuff is badly broken! By badly broken, I mean that installing all the needed software and codecs does not appear to be the only requirement. I was able to get it working in 11.1 and 11.2, but only via a hit and miss series of un-install the packages, reinstall one by one ... making offerings of fatty sheep ... reinstalling again .... performing the second part of the ring cycle for the neighbours cat ... remove the codecs again .... install again ... wow ... it's working ... set the entire system to ro ... sing for the cat again!
Does anyone have any insight as to why gstreamer is SOOOOOOO foobared in OpenSUSE? Can anyone articulate a series of steps that will actually get the desired result? BTW, getting this stuff working in FC13 is trivial. Add the fusion repo and install the codecs! I remember a better day in SuSE land when one added the packman repo and installed the codecs ...
Whenever I restart my system, the screen resolution has been reset to 1600 x 1200. I change it in "configure desktop" and it's ok for the session but it changes back on reboot. Also, the font sizes are too small for xterms. Sure, I can ctrl+ to increase but why should I have to do this each time I login? I noticed others seem to be having this problem. Is there an upgrade that will fix this? I'm using 11.2 and kde.
I used KDE3 with 11.0 with some KDE4 apps till I needed some applications from the KDE4 factory tree and mistakenly left the repository active. Next time the online update also updated most of the applications I would rather keep, and as a result the KDE3 disappeared from the KDM login choices. So I have two questions:1. how to enable users to select KDE3 at login (currently I have to select failsafe mode and run startkde manually)2. how to replay back an update I didn't want to have?
Perhaps a combination of the above: can I upgrade to OS11.2 and keep KDE3? (please don't tell me to switch to KDE4, I acknowledge and appreciate the effort and the improvements that KDE4 got, but it's still not a replacement for KDE3 - there are so many simple things which are impossible in the new version)
I have a creative zen mozaic that I'm trying to get working on ubuntu 10.10. I didn't get it to work on 10.04 but I didn't really try that hard. I conenct the player. It shows up as a disk and I copy over files but they wont be recognized by the player. It say's it's nothing there. If you open it in windows they will show and if you just remve them and copy them back in in windows the player will recognize them. How do I get this to work with ubuntu? This is the only reason to keep windows for me atm.
I own an ASUS N61JV-X2 notebook PC. It has an Atheros Communication, Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. 03:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01) 03:00.0 0280: 168c:002b (rev 01) I cannot see any SSIDs including my home Verizon FiOS 802.11 G WPA2-AES-TKIP encrypted network. I went to Starbucks to try to connect to their free Wi-Fi and I could not make a connection. How do I solve this problem so that I can connect to a SSID of my choice and make a wireless connection while using GNOME 3?
my headset has a headphone jack and microphone jack.
if i go to sound preferences > Hardware (Tab) and select Profile: Analog Stereo Input, then I can record sound with Sound Recorder. but in order to be able to hear what I recorded, I then have to go back to sound preferences > Hardware (Tab) and select Profile: Analog Stereo Output.
i see there is a profile option "Digital Stereo (IEC958) Output + Analog Stereo input", but when that one is selected, i can't hear anything through the speakers..., so, still having to switch back and forth as described above. perhaps a profile option with "Analog Stereo Output + Analog Stereo Input" would work, but it is not there...
why do i have to switch back and forth? (actually, it seems this setting-switching-requirement is true of the laptop's built-in speakers and mic as well, not just the headset...)
(Everything in GNOME ALSA Mixer is unmuted and set to maximum volume. Capture is at maximum and the "Rec" box is checked...)
I just installed Linux(Ubuntu) and I when from Windows to Linux. I use the option to use the entire hard drive when it installed and my question is when I had it use the entire hard drive did it keep the computer drivers or did it erase them? I notice that the sound is only about have as loud as before but is that Linux or my computer? I also notice when I plug in my mp3 sometimes it doesn't detect it. Also when I plug in my headset into the font USB it doesn't work. I'm not sure what is going on.
