Re: 30 miles from home and off the wall

Thank you "brokenman" for those instructions, and yes, as has been claimed here by others, you are a genius, al biet a very humble genius, and that's even better !

Re: 30 miles from home and off the wall

Back to this old thing. I've been to the facility twice this week and will be going again tomorrow. The box is running Windows XP Professional and I was able to finally login to Windows.

Re: How to use an external USB Webcam

@jeff4892,

The application using the USB webcam should have a setting to choose from. Such as:

/dev/video0 (which should be the built-in camera)
or
/dev/video1 (which should be the USB camera).

Re: Harley Hahn, A Very Smart Fella

@Jack,

I bought my used copy at a Linux Users Group meeting several years ago, forget what I paid. Just now checked Amazon and they have new and used copies for sale, $42 dollars US. Didn't see any mention of .pdf availability.

Harley Hahn, A Very Smart Fella

Friends, If you are new to Linux, as I seem to remain :-), check this out............ Several years ago I discovered "Harley Hahn", his website, and especially his book "Harley Hahn's Guide to Unix and Linux". This is kind of a "fall back to" book for me. He gives an excellent history of Unix and ta...
