sony dsc camera in Mandrake 10


Hi.

Does anybody know how to use a Sony DSC-S85 camera with Mandrake 10?
I used to use 'jphoto' from sourceforge.net but it wouldn't work with this new kernel.

I've got the 3-CD free download Mandrake edition.

any help would be appreciated.

I don't know that mode, but if it's an USB camera, maybe you'll find some help in this page .
Actually, it didn't work for me, but that's because I've got some USB issue.
Hope that helps.
Juan

Juan,

thanks for your help.

It was so easy! I mean - I used the gtkam program.
Excellent!
It recognizes my camera as soon as I plug in the USB cable and it's just a breeze, from there.

Tell me, what kind of problems do you have with your USB ports? Maybe I can help.
I've built a bunch of Linux machines from scratch and I'm an electronic repair tech with a ton of hardware experience.

Thanks again for your help

AL, that's great! I'm happy I could help.
Now, my issue, is that apparantly my USB ports just don't work. I have a Sony DSC P32. I tailed the messeges log file, and when I plug the cammera or any other USB device, nothing happens. I tried modprobe-ing the usbcore and usb-storage modules as recomended in some pages out there, bu still nothing happens...
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Juan
