Re: weird noise

Hi.  If you're experiencing the same problem I am, that noise you're 
hearing is probably your floppy drive.

I think the brief noise is normal behavior.  I _think_ it's cygwin 
scanning your floppy drive to see if its accessible under the cygdrive 
directory.  This happens on my computer, and in windows explorer, it 
will do the same thing if you click the floppy drive when it's empty.

I'm sure this wasn't supposed to happen, and I honestely don't know if

I've merged Richards images into this section and have change the directory
structure a little.

qt3-win32/images/deras -> contains all images and index file from Ivan

qt3-win32/images/larkang -> contains all images and index file from Richard

Richard,

you can remove your qt3-win32 related website if you like, it is no more
required.

Re: weird noise

Hi guys.

If this is a problem with the kde file manager searching/indexing all the 
drives AND you dont use your floppy, have you tried removing the floppy 
drive from the cygwin environment?  This is done by editing the registry 
(dont try it if you have never done this before)

Hope this helps.

trigger of including KDE-cygwin on Linuxtag DVD

Hi,

I thought it would be nice to know how the including of the kde-cygwin 3.1.1
release to the linuxtag DVD was triggered.

See
http://mailman.linuxtag.org/pipermail/debian-knoppix/2003-June/003229.html
for more informations.

KDE-Cygwin on princeton university

Hi,
nice comment from kde-cygwin usage on the princeton university could be
found on http://scadblog.princeton.edu/archives/000091.html.

This comment show me, that the installation of the basic package should be
easier

I've thought already about calling the cygwin setup from the kde-cygwin
installer with the required package to install or to integrate all necessary
cygwin packages (as Holger already stated before while out meeting in
hannover).

Any additional ideas how to reach this ?

scribus note

Hi,

an additional note about a KDE application which uses more and more the
kde-cygwin port.

"Other examples:

On the Win2k box which I test built versions of Scribus, The screen
display was overall sharper and less flickery than the Linux box I have
at home - and they have the same monitors with the same refresh rate. It
simply has a superior video card and very stable updated Win2k drivers.
Even with the beta ports of Qt and KDE on Win2k with the slower I/O from
way POSIX sockets are handled , the display is excellent and redraw is
snappy both with Scribus and KDE3. You can see the screen shots on the
kde cygwin page on line with the docs. "

For the whole text see

RE: trigger of including KDE-cygwin on Linuxtag DVD

Hi Ralf!

The initial msg was this one here:
<http://mailman.linuxtag.org/pipermail/debian-knoppix/2003-June/003191.html>

And then I tried to make their job easier to explain them how to bundle it:
<http://mailman.linuxtag.org/pipermail/debian-knoppix/2003-June/003242.html>

I'm glad to hear that this great projects (Cygwin+X+KDE) appear finaly on
the DVD!!

I found it a good idea to have a bootable Knoppix and still the whole power
under Losedows available.

Keep on the fantastic work! Its really great!

Unfortunately I'm not a software developer but try to show this projects
wherever I can, so that maybe someone with a better knowledge gives you a
hand!

Saludos,
Andreas

Re: weird noise

Hey.  Do you know which keys to modify/add?  I checked regedit, but 
there don't seem to be any keys relevant to my A: drive.

Thanks,

[patch] qlibrary_win.cpp

Hi,

    This is from my port, I'm not quite sure how I'm supposed to send the
patches in, so, trying with this smaller one first *smile*.

    This file should be ok, even with older qt versions, since it have not
changed in ages :)

    Since cvs lacks qlibrary_win.cpp ( as far as I can tell from viewcvs web
interface ), it should be as easy as placing it under src/tools

    Oh, btw, I've been experimenting a lot with building my own port with
the configure.exe I'm doing, and I found that *.h is not required to stay in
the same folder as the .cpp, only *_p.h is ( during the build process ). I
changed my installer to ship the *.h files into %QTDIR%\include directly.
This made things simpler in the installer and for the configure.

    If there are more things where I could be usefull, please let me know =)

Best Regards,
    Thiago A. Corrêa
