RE: Compaq LTE Elite 4/75CX
I will try it Wink.
BTW, awesome that in the repos are OpenTTD, runs very well, and is one of my favorite games Big Grin, Do you think that some NES emulator will work in this machine?.

However, I see when I boot with the CD Player connected some errors refered to the module.
Also I have the same problems when I do "modprobe nsp_cs".
The PCMCIA services are succesfully activated.
Also I have an observation, it delays a lot to appear my USB in fdisk. Also, the web browser sucks, I install Dillo, but don't open, when I execute them via console, it says that can't be displayed because the color depth (24 bits).
I upload the output of dmesg and modprobe.

The following line looks like the kernel built-in nsp_cs module finds the underlying pcmcia driver services incompatible :
nsp_cs: Card Services release does not match!

This can be caused by wrong pcmcia modules selection. You should be using kernel-built in modules only. If you've configured pcmcia-cs external modules, then do the configuration again and switch to the kernel built-in modules, then reboot.

modprobe of the nsp_cs module has no sense, because you probably need to supply the module with the right parameters (and that's usually done by the pcmcia scripts automatically, when the pcmcia services are properly configured).

Try Skipstone, it's a light mozilla based browser and in the repo.

That's strange .... in my case Dillo works in all color depths. Really don't know how you got to that message Huh What resolution and color depth have you configured? Do you use Xorg or TinyX ?

That's always hard to guess .... emulators are often quite resource hungry ...

I say it already, 24 bits, 800x600, SMI LynxEM+, Xorg.
What about my SCSI problem?, I already removed the extra things that I write in the PCMCIA config file, even the thing needed for my wlan card, didn't work either.

I think FCEU should run without a problem and is in the repository.
It has no GUI, so you have to start it from the terminal.
There are several emulators for Delicate. (sega, bbc, sam coupe, c64)
Normally FCEU should work perfectly on 450Mhz.

Hardware in use: Compaq PIII- 1GHZ, Geforce 4000, 256mb, 80gb HD
Dutch Delicate Linux information: http://www.delicatelinux.nl.ae

I'm still missing your feedback about the kernel built-in / external pcmcia-cs modules. Have you tried to switch to the kernel built-in modules? How does the dmesg output look after that.

Please, always tell me all steps you're doing and try to describe them in details.

Maybe we should arrange an online help on the IRC channel? Please, let me know if you're interrested ...

RE: Compaq LTE Elite 4/75CX
WORKS PERFECT!, The CD is completly recognized and I can play music, the problem is that I need to connect the Speaker to the Audio Out of the CD-Player, but it seems that is just a problem of CDCD, so if you can compile audacious I will be happy Smile.
Yay!

Let me explain what it is about.

Two different ways of playing audio CDs exist ....
1.) Classical way (supported by cdcd) - the sound is generated directly by the CD-ROM drive and goes in form of audio signal directly to your soundcard ... but this needs an internal analog or digital interconnection cable going from the back panel of your CD-ROM to the CD-IN or AUX input of the soundcard.
2.) Digital Audio Extraction - DAE (supported by audacious) - digital audio data are extracted from the CD and go via the IDE/SCSI cable, then via the ISA/PCI bus to the CPU/RAM and then played via the soundcard as PCM .... this approach doesn't need any cable, but eats CPU and especially older CD-ROM drives might return corrupted audio data even with the best correction mechanisms. Some CD-ROMs do not support this way at all.

In your case the problem probably lies in the missing interconnection cable ... or ... your CD input volume is set to zero in the sound mixer .... check that in aumix. Or ... maybe your soundcard isn't configured at all yet?

Audacious is not very lightweight even if the description says so :] I would rather introduce a different player, that's able to play CDs using DAE ... and even if I introduce audacious, there's no guarantee that the DAE feature will work. I'll try to search a bit and let you know.

Here's a CD-ROM back panel picture ... look at the two audio connectors on the left side ...

Laptop CD-ROMs might have different connectors .... eventually they might be missing at all Sad In such case the DAE way is really needed ...

RE: Compaq LTE Elite 4/75CX
I just introduced lazy in order to test the DAE .... it's a CLI based CD player with DAE capability. Please install it and test with:

lazy -d

that -d switch tells lazy to use DAE extraction ... I tested that on my old laptop with 8-bit soundcard and it seems that either lazy doesn't support 8-bit PCM or the CD-ROM doesn't support DAE well ... I got just terribly distorted noise ...

If anybody says it works, then we can try to introduce better players supporting DAE and having a GUI ...
