I have the latest stable xawtv installed on my Suse 7.2.
Does somebody know why there are only two frequency lists in the xawtv
package and where they are used for.
The choices in xawtv are 3 cable and 12 broadcast ranges. Does xawtv uses
these frequency ranges?
Is the sound frequency always a certain value away from the image frequency
and would playing around with sound frequency in such a list influence the
sound reception, in other words, could I get sound by playing around with the
distance between the two frequencies?
At the moment I have a good image but the sound is some 20 ticks away from
the accompanying picture.
I'm wondering whether anybody can help me ?
I have two main PC's, a 98 machine for the kids and games, and my 7.3
machine, which I use on a day to day basis. Both of which run Seti
My connection to the internet is via an old 486 that I have which runs
FREESCO. All the machines are connected via a hub.
The problem I have is that whilst the 98 machine will connect first time on
completion of a work-unit, the SuSE box will fail with a gethostbyname
message - resource not available message. Freesco then drops the connection
until the next hourly attempt and the same thing happens.
I have to stop Seti, start it, to initiate a connection, when it fails,
restart Seti and as Freesco is now established, Seti will download the unit
and its business as usual.
I'm told that there is nothing I can do in Seti, is there a way round this ?
Hello Chaps !
Amoung the messages on the mailing list there was something about scsi
emulation aimed at handling a CDRW (burning CD's).
Is there a similar way to emulate SCSI in order to have a IDE LPT
scanner working ?

Took me ages to get 7.3 going - I had real problems with the touch pad.
Do a manual install, as you've found out, and when done, before rebooting,
edit /etc.rc.config to replace the PCMCIA system with "kernel" rather than
"external." I think you can do this with YaST1 - system administration -
change configuration file. Or just do it manually. You can use the
installation CD to boot into rescue mode: go for manual installation, then
rescue. Then mount your root partition to /mnt and edit /mnt/etc/rc.config
You can then boot up with no problem.
You will then probably need to sort out usb to get the trackpad to work: you
need to replace the default "uhci" module with "usb-uhci." Again, you can do
this with YaST1, as above: edit the HOTPLUG_USB_HOSTCONTROLLER_LIST and
remove uhci. I put usb-uhci first but I don't know if that's necessary.
If I think of anything else, I'll let you know, but so far, that's as far as
I've got! Everything works fine, but no sound, so if you get a solution to
that, let me know. You can't disable plug and play in the bios (no user
access) and I don't know how to get around that.

How about if you send 2 jobs from the server itself? What makes you think
it's anything to do with Samba?

uh... I haven't followed all this thread, but... You did check the "sound
mixer" ( under multimedia ) a reletively useless mixer w/ ONE use ( that I've
found anyway )once selected make certain you check and unmute your cdrom
player! otherwise it appears to be playing w/ a cd in it... but no sound
issues forth .. It drove me nuts for the longest while , looking things up
installing /uninstalling drivers ( or I thought I was <sigh> ) until a
nontechie person openined that mixer and unchecked theeh mute button under
the Cd... duh! IT should be on your Kmenu, -> multimedia -> right between
realplayer and the Timidity synth
no flames please ... I'm just sending a suggestion , since you seem to have
tried everything else ... Wtf, it just might do the trick
I thought this might interest someone that is about ready to get a new
system. It seems, that even AMD's low end is better than Intel's high
end stuff. :-)

I wen't looking through yast and was wondering are there any plans to
add a module for harddrives enabling the user to format, partition,
encrypt, etc.. any new drives they may add? Seems to me this would help
users who don't know the commands for formating and preparing harddrives
Hell, it took me a little bit to to recall them and prepare the drive I
just added, I can imagine some new users having a fit.
