I previously posted to comp.os.linux.hardware, but got no responses.

These consist ofa sensor which attaches to the screen (suction cup, I guess) and MSsoftware to calibrate the monitor. I'm assuming that software to go .... read more

I d/loaded kernel-desktop-latest rpm but using urpmi over my 2007.0install. It was able to detect my WebcamGo (yey!) but 99% of thewebcam apps run in X. For some reason the kernel from that rpm doesNOT see a mouse, like it was trade-off for having the webcam :( How do I go about adding it? 2007.0 stock on 686 runs just fine, witha mouse on a PS2 port; in fact, gpm works on just fine. I haven't hadto do a modprobe mouse in ages (if that's the way to do it), even wayback when it was still .... read more

Also running it from command line give no problems.
I thought it was frozen-bubble's fault.
Instead EVERY entry I modify in KDE menu behave as described, not only fb.
Why? :-) than.... read more
