    Has anyone got this to work with Mandrake 10.1?

    Just with a default install, apparently 10.1 has old lib files for pygtk2 or somthing like that...any result is, it installs, but crashes when it starts up...

    THanks

    That won't help you fix your problem, just to let you know that you're not alone... same problem here.
    Anyone smarter than us?

    this helps you

    Hi . sorry for my bad Eglish...
    As adds, these syntaxes will help you:
    1. to obtain the sound module & card:
    lspcidrake -v |fgrep AUDIO
    cat /proc/asound/cards
    ( lpci instead if not mandrake)

    2. to see if the sound service is configured:
    /sbin/chconfig --list sound
    or:
    /sbin/chconfig --list alsa
    r:
    grep sound-slot /etc/modules.conf

    3. to see if volume is muted /unmuted:
    aumix -q

    4. to see wich prog is using the sound:
    /sbin/fuser -v /dev/dsp
    5. to see if the sound module (.1.)(exp: snd_intel8x0 ) is compiled in the kernel:
    modprobe -l|grep snd_intel8x0
    (here snd_intel8x0 is an exemple)

    6. to restart ALSA --if installed--:
    /etc/init.d/alsa restart

    7. somme usefull commands (to "adapt"):
    alsaconf
    cat /proc/pci
    cat /etc/modules.conf
    cat /proc/modules
    ls -L -l /dev/dsp*
    modprobe -l | grep -i snd
    lsmod | grep -i snd
    grep -i AC97 /usr/src/linux/.config
    lspci -v|grep -i usb

    Hope this will help you..
    selim,b.

    I don't use Mandrake but have you tried using urmpi? Does urmpi not install a program and all of it's dependancies? If this is so, it should install gDesklets along with whatever programs it needs to run properly.

    Hope that helps,

    Unfortunatly it dosnt work in this case, i have installed it like that, it dosnt complain about dependacies at all, its only when its run it crashes. it dosnt fail to run, it runs then crashes.

    Code:
    ISensor:
    ITime:
    .3/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py:90: GtkDeprecationWarning: gtk.mainloop is deprecated, use gtk.main instead
      self.warn(message, DeprecationWarning)
    thats the error message it provides in the log!

    Anyone know what that means?

    To me, that looks like an error with a specific theme. Have you installed any themes lately?

    Yes i have installed lots!

    Not on the pc at the moment, so should I switch theme to one of the default ones? or do i need to uninstall all the ones I added?

    Thanks for the tip!

    It looks like you have one called ITime. Remove that one and see what happens.

    ITime an ISensor were controls in /usr/share/gdesklets/Controls

    I say were, I deleted them to see if that was the problem but it appears not.

    It still crashes when it loads.

    So then i thought, id check out the gtk.mainloop in the file it says... so i have edited gtk.mainloop to just gtk.main like it says too.
    Now, the error message i recieve is

    Code:
    /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py:90: GtkDeprecationWarning: gtk.main is deprecated, use gtk.main instead
      self.warn(message, DeprecationWarning)
    which seems quite stupid! Im running out of ideas here!

    Try upgrading GTK and PyGTK (or Python).
