Yesterday I did a clean install of Suse 9.1. My tv-card (Pinnacle PCTV)
did get recognized properly and I could watch television on my pc. The
problem I had was that I didn't have any sound. I tried different sound
settings from the configuration panel in kdetv, but it wouldn't work.
This morning when I turned on my computer I couldn't watch tv anymore.
The appropriate device (bt878) was no longer in the list under "Devices"
in kdetv. I removed the card from the configuration center and added it
again. When I tried to scan for channels I got an error message saying
that /dev/video0 doesn't exist.
How can I fix it and how do I get sound?
OK, j said that his k3b worked fine after install and
So I moved my computer to a fast connection,
reinstalled 9.1 Professional from CD (with HD format -
to make sure it was clean) and did the online update.
Tried the packman k3b V 0.11.14-0 that j suggested.
No luck. k3b just sits there looking and looking, the
HD (it's a SCSI) shines its light brightly.
Both th CD and the CDRW are available to KDE as
SuSE's posted info in the db apply to 8.1, I am
assuming they have no relevance to this problem that I
am having with 9.1

This is probably old but it just happened to me. My logitech quickcam pro
3000 webcam wouldn't work after installing 9.1 when it did with earlier
versions of SuSE.
After a bit of research, I found out that it was the result of a conflict on
the inclusion of hooks from the pwc driver to the pwcx driver into the
kernel. I empathize with the creator of the driver and question the kernel
maintainer's decision (see http://www.smcc.demon.nl/webcam/). I know that
the maintainers are being orthodox and that the NDA agreement with Philips is
over. Whenever I see people who donate energy and time being victimized by
decisions like these (removing the hooks from the pwc kernel) I wonder if
they realize that the kernel maintainers are creating an abusive situation
that most people use linux to get away from?
Today I am a dissatisfied user. The waste of time (and frustration) in
recompiling the kernel with pwc enabled is ridiculous from my point of view.
Can SuSE do something about it? Please make GNU/linux a user-friendly
solution for those of us who are not very advanced users and care for the
I found a workaround to the problem here :
However after recompiling, there seems to still be issues with the
configuration of the V4L plugin!
i', having prob with 9.1 installation....
when i installed 9.1 ,i had xp working smoothly on my pc...
but when after installation suse got working...it didnt boot into xp...
it gave the error which seemed ...somewhat like...
hda(0,0)... ...bootloader +1
i checked boot.conf .....n tried entering manual entry for xp...
but it didnt work out....
Problems setting up my CD and CDRW.
I'm running SuSE 9.1, with a SCSI HD. (which complicates things. I think it puts the ide-scsi on a second scsi bus)
After the install, k3b searches and searches. Finds nothing. Does not build its GUI.
After I add hda=ide-scsi and hdb=ide-scsi to the System > Boot Loader Configuration > Default Section > Linux
k3b will search, and will the build its GUI, but no CD or CDRW is available, and KDE complains "cannot enter folder /media/cdrom" when the cdrom icon is clicked (same for the CDRECORDER icon).
I do believe that I am supposed to make link in /dev along the lines of ln -s sr0 cdrom and also one for the cdrecorder. I have randomed around and not stumbled on the magic combination.
If you hold the open sesame, let me know what it is.

I have just attached a Canoscan 670U, it's detected by YaST and tests OK.
YaST set it to the plustek driver on libusb
Kooka didn't acknowledge I had a scanner attached
Xsane didn't find it
Running KDE 3.3 on updated SuSE 9.1 Pro
Downloaded the latest Xsane from Packman. Made no difference.
Any thoughts welcome
I picked up something interesting at a garage sale. It is a Dazzle
It has analog IEEE 1394, and S-Video in and out, and connects to the
computer using IEEE 1394. From the manual, it can convert analog to DV
both ways. It also appears able to pass data between devices (I suppose
this means between a camera and VCR, for instance) without a computer.
I'm not familiar with DV format, but I understand it is uncompressed and
needs to be converted to a standard compressed (i.e., .AVI) format.
My use would be to convert old VCR tapes and store them on DVD or hard
drive. Does anyone have a resource they can point me to?
If you're right 90% of the time, why quibble about the remaining 3%?
