If you are able to make a small (say 10gb?) linux partition on your drive formatted ext2 or ext3 ... you can boot from the usb key ... but have the savefile and sfs files stored on the (fast) hdd partition.

LHP 602 likes this config --- LHP 515F not so much.

Nice answers from GCM & Gobbi! When my savefile bloats out I simply cut a new one.

Subject description: LHP 602 Won't access shares on an XP SP2 Box.
 

Having trouble getting at XP shares? I tried various things eg builtin LHP tools, YASIM, and slamming my face onto the keyboard repeatedly.

After much messing around I installed:
clarf_pnethood-0.66.pet
mountcifs-1.5.pet
and linked
/bin/smbmount > /bin/mount

at which point pnethood was able to mount shares.
hoorah.

you could probably skip installing mountcifs.pet
mountcifs-1.5.pet

Subject description: GKrellM - GCU wget
 

GKrellM info says it requires GNU wget in order to view a webcam.

PPM shows that I have wget already installed but not GNU wget.

I tried to add http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/timessquare/?cam=tsrobo1 and it doesn't respond when I choose Reread Source then Apply.

Do I need a different version of wget or ??

Thanks! David

Hi edoc ,

From my experience with GKrellM webcam plugin in LHP I can tell you this : I was never able to see any webcam that uses flash Exclamation

The only webcams seen were those sending mjpeg or jpeg... It is also important to set a low refresh rate ( to give time - I think - to the program to adjust the picture to the chosen dimension in pixels in GKrellM plugin ) ...

For example this adress works for me : http://www.katkam.ca/pic.aspx

OK, the old Flash hassle shows up in yet one more place - sure will be glad when we are finally rid of Flash.

I suppose it is theoretically possible to write a script to run a Flash webcam stream through a converter but I don't need it that badly.

Perhaps I can convince my son, just starting sophomore year as an IT major, to try it? It could make for an interesting learning experience.

Thanks.

How do I create an environment to compile the 32bit drivers and integrate them?!

Subject description: gtkam best app to get smartphone photos?
 

I can't get LH64 to access the photos on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone.

It doesn't have a removable sd-card so cable or wireless are the only ways to accomplish this.

Any suggestions, please?

Thanks - David
