Or should the OS immediately recognize upon plugging in, in which case i know it doesn't work.
Chances are that the cam gets assigned /dev/sda...
Now I don't know how the thing is partitioned and
which filesystem it might use....

try
mkdir /cam
mount -t auto /dev/sda1 /cam -o user,users,umask=000

If that fails, try a different sdaX ...

If the line works, put an eqivalent entry into
/etc/fstab
/dev/sdaX /cam auto noauto,user,users,umask=000,rw 0 0



Cheers,
Tink

Hey Tinkster,

Thank you so much. I did everything you said to install Amaya and it went very well. However, when I go to run the program from the icon nothing happens. I even rebooted to see if it helped. So close! I went to /usr/local/bin and there was nothing there. What 's up?

Man, my computer is going suuuper slow, as a matter of fact I'm typing and the cursor has not yet caught up...lol. Is there any way to check the swap space and make sure it's active and all that, and make sure I'm using it, cause it doesn't seem so. Thanks.

I think that Tink forgot to mention that you need to su to root before you type "make install."

try doing make install as root, and see what happens.

Thanks Elvis for pointing that out :}

I had indeed forgotten that bit.

top is always a good starting point to see
where the CPU is spending its time....

free will tell you too what your memory
and swap space usage is.

So what about the amaya. i did everything you said but when i choose to run amaya it doesn't do anything. I WAS logged in as root when i did all that. As a matter of fact I haven't even set up any users yet, just root. And ideas? Maybe I should enter a different path in the command-entry field when i'm in the menu editor. This is proving to be frustrating. Help!

Thank you.

I suggest the following
updatedb -c
locate amaya | grep \/bin

and see where it went ...

Which method of installation did you
choose, btw, "make install" or checkinstall?

One thing would be to try
make install | tee install.log
and check what's actually going on there...


Cheers,
Tink

Tinkster,

Thanks. I'll try it when I get home. BTW, I used "make install". Man, I hope this works. When I find out where it is , how will i know what path to enter in the command-entry field of menu editor? Thanks so much.

I'll tell you once I see the output of the locate statement :}

And if it comes back empty please post the contents
of /usr/src/Amaya/obj/install.log you created with tee.


Cheers,
Tink

Well, yes, I could do with a bit more exercise
and bit less food, but why did you have to bring
that up here? :D

Tink

Scroll up mate :}

Both top and free will tell you whether you have swap space or not :}
Or a
swapon -s

I recommend familiarising yourself with the man
command, really ... if you did
man -k swap
you'd get a lot of info, if it's too much, narrow it down
with grep ... like in
man -k swap | grep [18]
(grep [18] will only return manpages that have to
do with executables)


Cheers,
Tink

Tinkster,

1. When I type updatedb -c it goes to a new line, so I assume that's ok

2. When I try locate amaya|grep \/bin I get:
"/usr/src/Amaya/amaya/bindent1.bmp
/usr/src/Amaya/amaya/bindent2.bmp"

3. When I type make install|tee install.log I get:
"Nothing to be done for install" (note that I type this command in whatever directory I'm in whenever I open the console so I didn't go anywhere special to do it)

Now what?

Thanks again.

I also typed "top" and got a line that looked like this

"Swap 0K total 0K used"

I assume this means I didn't activate the swap space. Do you know how I can activate it. The partition exists for sure. Can I just put in the installation CD again or would that screw things up? Thanks.
