I am impressed with Ubuntu! I have just set up the audio input to my Mikomi Webcam, tested the microphone with "Sound Recorder", and it works perfectly. So thats it, it's up and running ready to chat with family in America and elsewhere!

LILO - What a fix?

Since I still want LILO to get onto my MBR, booted aLive-cd(Ubuntu), mounted /dev/sda2 to /home/slack and did a man lilo in /home/slack/sbin

There the option/error that I got during installation is mentioned under the -P section: Something about partition table and wrong values or..

Should do a /sbin/lilo -P ignore as far as I understand?

ubuntu@ubuntu:~/slack/sbin$ lilo -P ignore
Fatal: Cannot open: /etc/lilo.conf

Done fiddling around, trying stuff I shouldn't with my experience level (which is none).

Wipped all distro of my harddrive, left Vista Business there ( which is needed for work purposes ) and started all over again. Now GNU/Linux will be slackware only.

Q6600 Core 2 Quad
Asus P5K SE with 2 GB ram
320 GB Sata disk
where 40 GB is lost to Vista Business
a Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT attached to iiyama 17" Prolite

Just use the latest blender 2.49. They now support python 2.6.2 AND ffmpeg. Only follow the below if you require verse-server (I don't know if their pre-compiled binaries support verse client functions though). Also, you have to export PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib64/python2.6 to run the pre-compiled binaries.

Mikomi Webcam

Posted 05-22-2009 at 03:40 PM by uinseann

Well I decided not to get a Logitech after all, after reading it had problems with Linux. it seems you can get it working for awhile then it just freezes.

So because of the fact I did get the cheap Mikomi working this week I decided to buy a slightly dearer Mikomi DC-7120 5mp Mic and Zoom (that's what it says on the box).
