Hi, now after the weekend and some help I arrive to see cdrom and
diskette without problem and also the touchpad as ps2... the graphic is
ok with vesa, but certains games in the section play of mandrake hung
because of the not accelaleration of vesa...
if you use mandrake if fstab to see the cdrom and the diskette you do
not have to use sueprmount (it's only in mandrake) but mount , as
normally is used as in red hat... I think there aren't the drivers
for the supermount able to change from cdrom to diskette directly as for
windows xp... On th contrary if you use simply mount you the cdrom, you
umount, you change and you put the diskette at the place of cdrom and
you see it without problem...
In my fstab:
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,user,defaults
/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,defaults,ro
For the error at the beginning of the boot:
evice 00:1f.1 not available because of resource collision
there is always at the beginning of my boot...
I looked in the configuration center of mandrake at the voice
iformations and you see in the section memory that the famous 00:1f.1
correspond to an ide interface...
So as ghost said is correpsonding to a part of memory...
So I think that is this kind of laptop maybe the cdrom and th diskette
have the same interrupt so linux says that at the beginning because it
doesn't know that cdrom and diskette are interchangeable and it has no
drivers for this..
After this I haven't revealed no problem apart the ati...
I'll do some more check, I will tell you...!
Let me know you too, thank you...
Bye to the next...!
