hal 32/64 bit oss-10.3.x86_64 on AMD-64 box
While upgrading openSUSE-10.3-64bit to the latest "hal" package
Yast issued a dependency conflict to the effect that some programs
require the 32 bit version of hal. I thought this might mean the
latest i586 package which would be
Trying to upgrade "hal" to this produces a long list of conflicts.
Meanwhile there IS a "hal-32bit" package in the distribution
which IS installed i.e. no grounds for any conflict.
I'm a little confused.
what is the reason for upgrading hal?
See my other post. Basically I'm trying anything I can find
to recover the ability to move pictures from my usb camera
to disk. I even went back to my archived initial install image
and it doesn't work on there either. Looks like upgrading to
10.3 or the concurrent migration to 64-bit has something to
do with it.
I just mounted it manually
mount /dev/sdb1 /home/shared/sdb1
that at least takes the pressure off.
"Using 10.3 64bit and have a problem with usb sticks. When I click
on to open it comes up with an error message:-"
hal-storage-mount-removable no <--(action,result)
"Found the answer to this question (in case anyone else has the same
problem). Install the version of hal from here:-"
i found if you plug a external storage device in before you boot the os
transfer rate is better. I found with my esata drive that if i turn it on
after the os has booted up the transfer rate is crap 50 to 200 kbs but turn
it on before i boot up os the transfer rate goes up to 50mbs +.
If i try to use windows and turn on the esata hard drive after boot up can't
use it at all.
