CASIO QV-10A driver problema
I borrowed a lcd digital camera CASIO QV-10A and as nobody managed to make it work so far (under windows and not 95 for sure) i looked for a linux drive and i found a qvplay-0.95.tar.gz .
well, i looked into readme file and found a great deal of information regarding all sorts of linux distros and other OS , warnings , and format stuff that won't work ( among other things ) :
"CASIO QV-10 digital camera is a cool product. But, PC link software
provided by CASIO works on only MS Windows PC or Machintosh.

I really would like to post the entire readme but it's kind of big , so if anyone wants it , just , please, say so .
BTW i have a conection cable for it ( it ain't USB either) joystick type .
I'm a dual booter so i'm going to try it anyways on windows too but i really need your advise on two things :
- Is it really dangerous to try out on linux? cause i don't want to end up with a dead pigeon on my lap .
- I only untared the package (tar zxvf .....) but i couldn't even finish it (this one is a bomb , not that i'm that experienced with source code but since i learned it , i never installed any other format on my machine . It feels like i'm going to take ages to configure this camera and i don't really have that much time .
