Codec Multimediali su Fedora Core 7

Per installare i codec apriamo la shell, diventiamo root e diamo questi comandi singolarmente:

wget ftp://mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/all-20061022.tar.bz2

tar xjf all-20061022.tar.bz2
mkdir /usr/lib/win32
mv all-20061022/* /usr/lib/win32
rm -fr all-20061022

Operazioni post-installazione

Utili repository per Fedora core 7

Sound System – Audio

After installation i cannot hear audio.
The default conf do not work.
I have changed my modprobe.conf
(see below) and everything work correctly.

[root@trinity2 ~]# cat /etc/modprobe.conf
alias eth0 r8169
alias scsi_hostadapter ata_piix
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=3stack
options snd-card-0 index=0

Webcam

On my Asus Z99Jseries (like a A8JN)
to make webcam work you have to install this software:
http://mxhaard.free.fr/spca50x/Download/gspcav1-20070508.tar.gz
This is the home page:
http://mxhaard.free.fr/download.html
You have to follow this steps:

wget http://mxhaard.free.fr/spca50x/Download/gspcav1-20070508.tar.gz
tar -zxvf gspcav1-20070508.tar.gz
cd gspcav1-20070508

make
make install
modprobe gspca

Now it work perfectly.
You can try it with vlc

If your image should be strange and with bad color change your
/etc/modprobe.conf :

add this line

options gspca force_rgb=1

else, if your image is too dark, try this line:

options gspca force_rgb=0 gamma=4

when you have a change reload the module before retry

modprobe -r gspca
modprobe gspca


You can change on the fly the gspca parameter here


cd /sys/module/gspca/parameters
autoexpo

compress

debug

force_rgb

gamma

GBlue

GGreen

GRed

lightfreq

OffBlue

usbgrabber


to read them you can usa a cat

to change them use this:

Card Reader

Every info from:
http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_SD_and_MMC_card_readers


Lan

Driver only included in newer Kernels (RTL8168b/8111b), Module name “r8169” or alternatively the proprietary Realtek-driver “r1000“.
I recommend to use the build in kernel driver, because it’s making less trouble during an upgrade and it’s working as it should.

TouchPad

Synaptics Touchpad, works with the dafualt configuration obtained after installation (including scrollbars)

ACPI

modprobe asus-laptop
load the correct module, but i had good experience with slackware and

Linux e webcam su asus A8JN e Z99J

Finalmente la Webcam FUNZIONA.
Sul mio Asus Z99Jseries (riconosciuto come un A8JN)
per installare la webcam è stato sufficiente scaricare il pacchetto
http://mxhaard.free.fr/spca50x/Download/gspcav1-20070508.tar.gz

dal seguente sito

http://mxhaard.free.fr/download.html

e dare

make
make install
modprobe gspca

e ora FUNZIONA!!!

Potete provarla con l’ottimo VLC (File -> Apri periferica di acquisizione)
Se l’immagine dovesse avere strani colori aggiungete questa riga al file

/etc/modprobe.conf :
options gspca force_rgb=1

se invece l’immagine è troppo scura provate ad aggiungere questo:

options gspca force_rgb=0 gamma=4

e poi ricaricare il modulo con

modprobe -r gspca
modprobe gspca

Inoltre è possibile cambiare al volo i parametri di gspca

cd /sys/module/gspca/parameters


I parametri sono i seguenti:

autoexpo
compress
debug
force_rgb
gamma
GBlue
GGreen
GRed
lightfreq
OffBlue
OffGreen
OffRed
usbgrabber

per leggerli basta un cat

e per modificarli :

echo "_valore_" > _parametro_


Allego di seguito una breve descrizione dei parametri:

autoexpo:Enable/Disable auto exposure (default=1: enabled) (PC-CAM 600/Zc03xx/spca561a/Etoms Only !!!) (int)
debug:Debug level: 0=none, 1=init/detection, 2=warning, 3=config/control, 4=function call, 5=max (int)
force_rgb:Read RGB instead of BGR (int)
gamma:gamma setting range 0 to 7 3-> gamma=1 (int)
OffRed:OffRed setting range -128 to 128 (int)
OffBlue:OffBlue setting range -128 to 128 (int)
OffGreen:OffGreen setting range -128 to 128 (int)
GRed:Gain Red setting range 0 to 512 /256 (int)
GBlue:Gain Blue setting range 0 to 512 /256 (int)
GGreen:Gain Green setting range 0 to 512 /256 (int)
compress:Turn on/off compression (not functional yet) (int)
usbgrabber:Is a usb grabber 0x0733:0x0430 ? (default 1) (int)
lightfreq:Light frequency banding filter. Set to 50 or 60 Hz, or zero to NoFliker (default=50) (int)
