Driver Problem

Hi there,

 

Can anybody help me with a driver problem?
Thinstation doesn't recognise the Broadcom Netlink BCM5787M Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Card in my HP T5730 - Thinclient.

 

I tried out the driver tg3 delivered with Thinstation 2.2 -> didn't work, system booted, but no eth interface loaded
I tried out the driver tg3 in Thinstation 2.3 -> system hangs when loading the tg3 driver
I tried out the driver in the download-section thinstation-drivers -> system hangs when loading the tg3 driver.
The driver which was delivered by HP for the Debian environment (where it worked perfectly) didn't work under any Thinstation Version (2.2, 2.2.1, 2.3).

 

What can I do?

 

Thanks for any help.
Mg

Unknown side effect

Hello thinstation-developer,

PROBLEM

Two month ago I gave away yet another PC as thin station in production
and the user was disaponted the fact while he tried rename folder 
and start to print letters in Cyrillc charset he was thrown away from
this operation.

This PC was Celeron-600/Intel810/RTL-8139,
connection was to Win2003 through rdesktop with only one session
and ThinStaton verson was 2.3 beta 1.

It was very strange because the neighboring PC the similar to this PC
with Celeron-600/S3/RTL-8139 worked flawlessly.

I used the one downloaded image ("thinstation.nbi") with mininmum modules/drivers
for all PCs and difference could only be in drivers they used.
They also used the same configuration file ("thinstation.conf.network").

The first thought was - "bad keyboard" but a brand new keyboard gave nothing.

SOLUTION

Thinking about what should I do I have changed default setting:
SESSION_0_SCREEN=1
 to 
SESSION_0_SCREEN=0
in "thinstation.conf.network".

I cannot explain this side effect but it did the trick. The neighboring PC
also worked fine after rebooting.

So it would be very useful to change this default setting in distros.

Best regards,
 Vladimir

Thanks for the bug report. Odd indeed.
You are a brave man to run a beta 1 in production :-)

How to build in a new version of rdesktop

Hi. I am not a developer or a linux guru. But I managed to boot linux and extract the main build and build images
with small adjustments to build.conf. I want to implement the new rdesktop 1.6. How do I do it? I found this
on google http://www.nabble.com/rdesktop-1.6-td18053557.html. I tried to download the
rdesktop-1.6.0_TS-2.2.tar.gz file and added it to the build. I first removed the original rdesktop that
was under packages and added the extracted contents and run build. But when I boot up a computer using the
image the was made I get and error stating that rdesktop is not to be found be sure to look at your build.conf
file.......... Any Ideas?

Re: Thinstation-developer Digest, Vol 27, Issue 3

Have you ever been to try to run rdesktop with full path, like /bin/rdesktop 
?
Perhaps your environment variable PATH may be null.
