Hi how are ya.

With Linux you don't use Windows programs! For example, instead of MSN Messenger, you might try AIM or Pidgin, both good IM programs.

Can you fill out your profile information, and let us know what Linux you are using, e.g., ubuntu, redhat, fedora, whatever...

Hope you like it!

Smile Hello there,

I am using at the moment SUSE, Linuxe version 10. I have never used this program before and everything i try to download nothing seems to work. Is it just me that Linux is tuff to work with or is there a special trick that needs to be done with this thing to make it work.

The Camera does not work and i tried to download the dirver from this web: http://linux.via.com.tw/support/downloadFiles.action

but i still don't know how to check and see if it does work....

Please let me know any details that can be a help here.

The camera works with the uvc driver.

The drivers you linked to have nothing to do with the camera.

Smile having problem to install fedora 9 on hp mini 2133

Hello guys.
I am having a problem since I tried to install fedora 9 on hp mini 2133.
It works without X, but if X is started, the displayed is freezed and just have to shut down.

Could you share some experience if you had the same problem so far?

I am very beginner fedora user, so it would be great to teach me step by step.

Thank you in advance
