Just curious: Is there any camera manufacturer that supports linux?

I have an excellent Canon s230 camera. I tried making it work with Mandrake 9.2 with out luck. I get numereous communication errors. Is there any camera manufacturer that supports linux? Here are the 3 main reasons I resort occasionaly to using Windows: 1. Picture download. 2. High quality picture printing. 3. Encarta Encyclopedia Thanks, Daniel C. drivers

That is the one problem with Linux. Most of the drivers and such are written not by manufacturers, but by other folks.

Is mandrake the only distro you have tried?

You may try out Ubuntu and be sure to include the Universe and Multiverse mirrors in your sources.list.

Otherwise you may be out of luck.

The other option may be to get a card reader for you SD or whatever card you are using. That is what I have done for my digital camera. The readers don't cost much (I think I got my for $20 at Walgreen's and it reads four different kinds of cards. Linux just looks at it like a thumb drive or external hard drive.

Hello, My canonPower shot s230 no longer works.The screen remains black at all times and the photos are also black! Any clues?


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, contact Canon support for your country to see if they'll still honor the advisory (some still will, especially if you stress you knowledge that this is a known defect of the camera). They may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info. PS. You better hurry, because Canon is considering stopping this free fix by July 31st. (for the S230 only, all others will continue).

Affected cameras with this problem include: A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S230, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/V3/300/400/430/500/II/IIs, IXY Digital 200a/300a/320/400/450/500/30/30a

Black screen surshot camera


The camera has a recall issue, it's called a CCD sensor. Your problem is better known as the black screen of death. To date Canon is the only company that will repair this issue for free, Call Canon and they will send you a shipping label that you can print out on your computer and send them the camera and they will fix it and send it back free of charge. Canon has excellent customer support, I would never purchase any other brand of camera other than Canon because of the lack of other companies not standing behind product repair issues that are a result of poor design flaws on parts.

How can i installed driver of sata hdd for linux red hat


if you are installing red hat 8 and higher there is no need to install extra driver because linux is the only operating system which will install everything including drivers, office suite,programming tools etc .... as far as my suggestion dnt install old versions of linux instead install new version ... there are many linux available
ex: fedora core 4,5,6 ,knoppix live cd linux ( which boots linux from cd no need install it) ,ubuntu,red hat,mandrake,suse ....
you can download it from net 4 free as linux is open source 4 all ...
be careful while installing linux especially during partitioning..... if u make a mistake you will lose all datas
