  1. He's using 2010 just like me, so the repo's are no option. I think unpack the tar.bz2 en place the content in usr/lib/firefox
  2. I got the same error with firefox on Mandy 2010 (MCNLive), do you have a link for firefox 17 (tar.bz2) so in the meantime i can keep using firefox on my netbook
  3. Download the chrome browser, by easyurpmi activate the sources of 2010.2 or 2011. Deactivate the sources of 2010, install the downloaded chrome and the deps should be installed also Activate the 2010 sources again and de-activate the others
  4. Thanks, it's clear i don't gone miss it
  5. I've trying to get the source of restricted (updates) for 2010.2 and get the error hat there is no metadata found for medium restricted. Anyone knowing more about it.

    Also tried the RC on my desktop pc, all i got was a black screen with a cursor that can move and that's it The graphic card is a Nvidia FX5200 and the mobo a VIA K8M800, nothing special. Mageia 1 worked well on this pc
  7. How did you generate a application link on th desktop
  8. Click right on the icon, choose properties Click left on the icon Choose other icons Search for the folder where you extract the tar and then find firefox/icons and double-click on mozicon128.png Then oke, oke, oke, oke untill the properties screen is closed. Some names could be different on your system, i've a dutch Mandriva version
  9. Mandriva 2011 i never used it, i use MCNLive based on 2010 and it's stable. I only hope that Mageia with Mageia 2 still fits on a Cd
  10. Lets hope that is not going to happen, i'm wondering what happens to Mageia it's based on Mandriva. Just like PCLos.
  11. Normaly i install only from MCC but in this case i had to do it this way. Why copy it in /usr/lib, simple this is where firefox install itself and all the users can use firefox 8 In /home you can't But as Ian say put the tar in /home extract it and make a shortcut
  12. AussieJohn is right normaly you install by MCC, but in my case i'm running MCNLive Kris which is based on Mandriva 2010 and have Firefox 3.6 as latest. I downloaded firefox 8.?.tar.gz and extract it in /home, got root renamed the old firefox folder and copied the new one in /usr/lib Removed the old entry in startmenu and made a new one So there is no script used Need more info send a pb
  13. I'm running 2010 and downloaded the firefox 8.0 as tar unpacked it and put the map firefox in /usr/lib made a new entry in the startmenu and it works
  14. I have a aspireone 110 with a 8,9 inch screen and use it for anything. I use openoffice, the gimp, scribus, watching video, playing music, internet, etc It's running with KDE from 2 micro usb-sticks (ssd died) 512 mb intern and the speed is good, don't run 3 programms the same time. For havy photo editing and that kind of stuff it's no good. But for normal work it's enough. My daughter hase a samsung with 10 inch and 1 gyg memory 250 gyg hd, she use it for here studie on the university and is very pleased with it.
  15. My five cents, i have a modem - router (smc with one antenna) - 5 netbooks - 1 laptop - 1 pc 1 printer (cable on te router) All of them are connected wireless to the router and it works perfectley. My only protections are firewall in the router, mac-adress filtering and wep-key.

    When i want to place the home icon on the taskbar it won't work but if i move the home icon to the taskbar en touch the top of the taskbar with the mouse pointer i see a little square appearing when i release the left mouse button the icon is placed at the taskbar. Hope it helps.

    John, Have you unlocked the widgets, if i unlock widget i can drop any icon on the taskbar.
  18. That isn't KDE , if you see the inlogscreen you can choose what desktopmanager you will start. I believe it's the icon on the right bottom.
  19. Try to reinstall your graphics card, what i find strange is the size of the pictures. The one from 2010 is bigger then the one from 2010.1
  20. @jazzcomm, do see a grey message on the top left of youre screen just before you been drop back to the inlog screen. If so the burn is bad Further, if you do the first boot of KDEOne you don't need a password if you logout and login you need a login name and password that will be guest and the password is guest

    Where did you put those files, another way to make youre w-lan work with the inf-files is Ndiswrapper MCC/internet choose w-lan and then Ndiswrapper, follow the steps.
  22. Just wait a couple of days, it should work if there are any new updates.
  23. Go to MCC-software and then added media.
