Debian on my Targa laptop : it finally worked !
Well, I already told you the problems I had ; now, after a complete
re-install from scratch, it seems to work almost fine: gdm on start,
great looking Gnome desktop, hourra !
Still are a bit problematic :
-- KDE, not installed because of the library problems that occured, but
that seems fixed : I just need a little "apt-get install kde" now, I guess !
-- my DSL modem, on USB port : it uses the "eagle-usb" package (also see
http://www.eagle-usb.org, in french) but I don't get it to work ... It
seemes the module was succesfully built and installed, the provided
tools tell me the module is loaded, the DSP code, firmware and so on are
sucessfully sent to the device, but it just doesn't synchronise ... I'll
have to look into it !
I use this modem daily on my main computer : it works quite fine.
-- DVD reading (with totem or Gnome DVL) : image OK, but no sound
although yes, sound works with other applications : I did some tests !
-- last little problem : my USB memory stick ... I mount it as root with
mount -t vfat /dev/sda /mnt
but, as user, a ls /mnt gives me full of "permission not granted" ; I
tried the -o nosuid,user option : didn't help ...
Thank you all for your help.
PS : as I'm not into development, I probably will unsubsribe to this
list soon, and continue the discussions through private mails with those
who are kind enough to help me ;-) !
