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...
If anyone has got it to work, id be interested to know how to fix it!
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
( lpci instead if not mandrake)
2. to see if the sound service is configured:
/sbin/chconfig --list sound
/sbin/chconfig --list alsa
grep sound-slot /etc/modules.conf
3. to see if volume is muted /unmuted:
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--:
7. somme usefull commands (to "adapt"):
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..
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.
thats the error message it provides in the log!
.3/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py:90: GtkDeprecationWarning: gtk.mainloop is deprecated, use gtk.main instead
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
which seems quite stupid! Im running out of ideas here!

Try upgrading GTK and PyGTK (or Python).
