I am trying this under 107a

* First I tried with the java 1.0.5 prepared by G2
Nope for some reason was unsuccessful

* So I tried with their own stable java (had this before with java progs - there own one is more stable as they say

* Signed up with Mic. . . Micr . . . "The Company that must not be named" "VoldeSoft" (I think it is)

* Got a basic Mercury working OK

* downloaded and unzipped the spca5xx.o

* Now seem to be stuck with this - time for some seaweed tea and maybe I will try again

Quote:
# cp /root/spca5xx.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/usb/spca5xx.o
cp: cannot create regular file `/lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/usb/spca5xx.o ': No such file or directory


Mercury seems a very pleasant program and I have to agree with your pragmatic approach. Do we want video conferencing? Yep. Then we have to compromise. I must admit I did feel unclean after signing up with MS Passport control - think I will go and browse some porn sites to remove the taint . . . Wink

Really looking forward to the Dotpup

Lobster, simply look at the filestructure of Puppy in Rox, then you will see this should work:
cp /root/spca5xx.o /lib/modules/2.4.29/usb/spca5xx.o

Ok. This is almost working!!

Alright I installed the mercury messenger without java as I already
have java installed and mercury works. Instead of installing
mercury to /root/ I installed to /opt/

So my question is where do I extract or put the files mentioned below?
Extract NativeLibs-linux.zip to /root/Mercury/jre/lib/i386

Wherever your jre/lib/386 folder is. I cannot answer because it depends on where you installed Java.

Follow the instructions in this post
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?p=12043#12043

Please notice that in that post it indicates to go and follow the instructions in the Mercury web site. The instructions there are fairly clear and I didn't find the need to repeat them.

Great! At least it's working for some else than me!

You just need to focus your camera.

# depmode -ae
bash: depmode: command not found

modprobe: Can't locate module spca5xx


depmode: command not found ?

Err, that is what screwed me once as well.
Rarsa must have had the same problem we all have sometimes.
We end up misspelling.

So here

# cp /mnt/mydata/spca5xx.o /lib/modules/2.4.29/usb/spca5xx.o
# depmod -ae
# modprobe videodev
# modprobe spca5xx

Now if you want this to load everytime you boot
add these lines to rc.local

depmod -ae
modprobe videodev
modprobe spca5xx

thanks, that helped. Now the JMF files, I'm getting the same problem with the NativeLinux...zip file not wanting to unzip.

Code:
# unzip NativeLibs-linux.zip -d /root/my-applications/Mercury/jre/lib/i386
Archive:  NativeLibs-linux.zip
  End-of-central-directory signature not found.  Either this file is not
  a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive.  In the
  latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
  the last disk(s) of this archive.
unzip:  cannot find zipfile directory in one of NativeLibs-linux.zip or
        NativeLibs-linux.zip.zip, and cannot find NativeLibs-linux.zip.ZIP, period.

hi klhr

I think you might have been referring to me and my very simple script, in which case here it goes -

[code]cp /root/spca5xx.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/usb/spca5xx.o
depmod -ae
modprobe videodev
modprobe spca5xx[/code]

hope it helps

cheers G

As far as I remember you had to download the NativeLinux-libs using bittorrent. (or ctorrent). When you do that, the file appears to be complete while it is still downloading. You may need to continue the download until it's complete.
