Mandriva Guru (6/7)



  1. Thread title is ambiguous, borderline sensationalist. Ditto that.
  2. lurking in the shadows....

  3. Hopefully this means that no one company can dictate the project's future.
  4. If I were you I would get amarok to rip to mp3 in the first place rather than transcode from ogg to mp3. There is the potential for loss of quality when transcoding between two lossy formats.
  5. Who suggested that it would be the sole reason? I really don't think anyone will be looking to buy the company in order to kill off the brand, anyone in the business with that kind of money to waste (i.e. RH, Novell, Canonical) need not worry about the strength of Mandriva's brand as it isn't that strong relative to theirs. Anyone looking to buy the company will be more interested in stripping out the technical staff (at least what's left of them) and their skills and absorb them into their own products. They are not likely to keep the existing business going as is as it has been proven that the current business model is seriously flawed.
  6. Cough! cough! https://mandrivausers.org/index.php?/topic/87613-public-statement-of-mandrivauser-de/page__view__findpost__p__622893
  7. I seriously hope that no outsider takes a look at the comments on that and believes it to be indicative of the Linux community as a whole. They come across as a bunch of whiny brats. The organisation has limited resources and decided to focus on the wider user base, a harsh reality of real life. Get over it and grow up.
  8. That is factually incorrect, the LTS releases are supported for 3 years for UbuntuDesktop and 5 years for UbuntuServer. Source: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/LTS
  9. If you have installed all of your software via the package manager then you should be safe to remove old unused kernels through the old package manager for sure.
  10. It's a Novel sponsored project and there's stuff in it that has not been included in vanilla OpenOffice because Sun/OOo community will not include it.
  11. Another vote for Scarecrow's advice.
  12. Tux, do you have anything credible, other than conjecture, to back up your opinion that the browser is spyware? For me Chrome/Chromium have been far more stable and far more responsive than Firefox or Oper, be it on Windows or Linux. The builds for Linux are considered unstable yet they run rings around Firefox and Opera, so much so that the Chromium Daily Builds from the Ubuntu PPA is my default browser!
  13. Didn't know that. Fortunately it doesn't affect me as all my large files in my /home directory are still on an Ext3 partition.
  14. I must be an exception, Pulseaudio worked fine for me on 9.04 and is working fine for me on 9.10 I dunno, the lead developer is employed by Red Hat.
