  1. Perhaps he should have tell about his reason in the first place. And not just leave and then come back without a word. Btw it's interesting to see how the child (PCLinuxOS) commits the same mistake (wrong management of community) as the parent (Mandriva). And how Mandriva became more and more community driven over the years bacuse of this while PCLinuxOS remained controlled by a small group until now, we'll see what will happen to them.
  2. They are doing something like that. From what I read on the Unity linux page They are developing a common base for all the PCLinuxOS spinoff distros. This base could very well be the base of PCLinuxOS too. So this thing could become something positive to PCLOS.
  3. Edit your first post, you can change the title there.
  4. Mozilla Firefox 3.0.8 is out. It's a security update. Release notes Download
  5. AFAIK the guest account is the one where the home dir gets deleted automatically after logout. It will be added in the Mandriva 2009 spring. It's in Ubuntu. But since your system is 2008 Spring I don't know it is related to your problem or just a coincidence.
  6. With the upcoming release of the Catalyst 9.3 driver (sometime in mid-March), ATI will officially stop supporting Radeon cards based on the R500 architecture and earlier with the monthly driver releases. Instead, those older GPUs will be supported on a quarterly driver release schedule. (Note: Catalyst 9.3 will support ALL Radeon GPUs - 9.4 and beyond will implement "legacy status" on the aforementioned cards.) For the rest of the article click here. The article contains the list of GPUs which will have the legacy support from Catalyst 9.4. More bad news is that the new legacy driver will not support the new X server 1.6.
  7. Here's one: http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4750252/Li...116_-_KDE_Issue
  8. You can download the newest issue of Linux Format (and the ISO which comes with it) via torrent for free but only until midnight (GMT).

    XFCE 4.6

    XFCE 4.6 has been released after 2 years of development. Take a look at the visual tour to see the new features. If you like what you see, you can download it.
  10. PhpBB with clean interface? Where did you see that? Mandrivalinux.hu switched to phpBB 3 a couple of weeks ago and it was anything but clean. Icons, links, boxes everywhere. Cluttered or bloated that's more what I would say about it not clean.
  11. You should try at MIB (Mandriva Italia Backports). They already made live DVDs. They also have an international forum section.
  12. I don't theink there is an easy way to change the GRUB background, however you can change the boot background in the Mandriva control center in the Boot tab there is an icon which starts the app where you can change your boot theme. To use your background create a new theme. What do you mean by controls theme? Widgets (buttons, tabs, radio boxes etc) ? Look for GTK themes in the package manager. The same applies to screensavers. What's too small or too big in Firefox exactly? Font size? You can setup a minimum font size in Firefox on Edit\Settings (or Options, I don't use English here)\Content tab. Additionally you can change the font size quickly in FF by Ctrl+mousewheel just like in Opera. But you have to setup the page every time like that when you visit it agan. Hopefully someone else answers the rest of your questions because I don't use Compiz or Gnome.
  13. You just met the main problem (at least for me) of Mandriva 2009. It contains both KDE 3.5.10 and KDE 4.1.3. But instead of two full installs both are a mixture because when Mandriva 2009 was released KDE 4 wasn't in a usable state, a lot of KDE 4 apps wasn't working so they just used the KDE 3 versions of those apps. So there is no clean KDE 4.1 by default. On the other hand some KDE 4 apps are installed even when you chose KDE 3 as your desktop. This one though is the better choice IMHO. To use a clean KDE4 I would suggest to upgrade to KDE 4.2. Be aware that it's unsupported. But from what I read on the web it's still much better than KDE 4.1.
  14. Following the announcement of plans to set up an international committee encompassing Mandriva and its Community, here is the first update concerning the policies for this working group.
  15. Mozilla Firefox 3.0.6 has been released. It fixes some security issues. More details in the Release Notes.

    KDE 4.2

    Thanks for Helio hthere are Mandriva packages available: http://www.kdedevelopers.org/node/3877 The link of the README is wrong in the article. The correct one is: ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/4.2.0/Ma...a/2009.0/README

    KDE 4.2

    There is a live cd already. It's Suse but it's good enough to look at KDE 4.2. ftp://gd.tuwien.ac.at/kde/stable/4.2.0/KDE-Four-Live/

    KDE 4.2

    The long awaited stable release of KDE is out. This is supposed to be the first release of KDE 4 for end users. You can see what you can expect from this release from the visual guide and the release notes. Plus you can read an interview with KDE project leader Aaron Siego on the OSnews announcement.
  19. Mandriva Linux 2009 Spring Alpha 2 is now available on public mirrors. You will find following isos : - 2 DVDs isos : 32 and 64 bits versions - 1 dual arch CD iso (available tomorrow). Warning: these are development isos, this should not be used in production. Do not use these isos to upgrade from 2009 version. Upgrade is not yet managed, you would break your system (especially for KDE 3 users). Also design and Mandriva theme is not integrated. You will find more information about features, errata here.
  20. 4.1.96 can be the release candidate for 4.2
  21. I didn't read all the first post, I gave up about at the third, and I don't wanna play the forum admin here but we have a blog section. IMHO this would better fit there.
  22. The last version of the 4.1.x series, KDE 4.1.4, and the release candidate of 4.2 have been released. KDE 4.2 stable is planned for release on the 27th of January. The announcement is here.
  23. IIRC Qtractor is available in the MIB repo.
