  1. Thanks much. I have installed it. Only difference I notice is that I installed kernel-netbook-2.6.31.6-2mdv. Note the "2" in front of mdv.
  2. I just got a netbook and was wondering if I should use the netbook kernel (2010.0). What is the benefit over the regular desktop kernel? -- just smaller or what? I am going to install virtualbox (PUEL) and it needs the kernel source so when looking through the downloads I noticed the netbook kernel. I hadn't known there was such a thing. So, should I change to the netbook one? [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  3. I've been using compiz-fusion on kde 4.x on Mandriva 2009.1 with 9 virtual double-wide (dual monitors) desktops with each having its own different background. I think there was supposed to be some kind of conflict with using icons on the desktop though, but I have never had any icons on my desktop so it was no bother. I don't use any of the kde 4 features though. The more it starts to look like 3.5 the better it seems to get.
  4. Has anyone gotten rdesktop to work outside of a lan? Neither I nor my buddy, who is not running Mandriva, have been able to use rdesktop to connect to our office location which runs Windows XP. However, I can bring up VirtualBox and then WinXP and connect from WinXP. It would be nice not to have to bring up Windows. Edited to note that we use tunneling. I believe it is this that is causing the problem. It is as though rdesktop is not using the tunneling ip, but is instead trying to go out over the network.
  5. It seems that people using Ubuntu are able to do it. Just trying to see if it is possible from within Mandriva.
  6. I have dual monitors and use Twinview and all works well. How can I get my Windows XP client in VirtualBox to also span dual monitors? Am on 2009.1, with VirtualBox PUEL 3.0.4. [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  7. Yep, it was the remote machine sending me those emails. It never would have crossed my mind.
  8. Hmmmm. Ya know...... My web site is actually on a linux machine...... It is a web hosting service, but I actually have a virtual machine. I'll have to check that. It had never crossed my mind. May not get to it tonight. I have a road race in the morning (worlds largest 10k) and it about time for me to start preparing stuff and then get to bed. I'll post back after I get a chance to check it. Thanks for the insight. Rich

  10. I did a file scan for anything named *spamassassin* and got no hits. What does this have to do with the price of tea in China? Do you think that root is spamming me? I did execute logrotate -vf /etc/logrotate.conf

  12. Nothing in /etc/logrotate.conf and I did a scan of all the files under /etc/logrotate.d/ and everything is spelled correctly as "notifempty". I can find no occurrance of "notifyempty" but I keep getting this email every day. Puzzled.....
  13. I'm getting the following email: /etc/cron.daily/logrotate: error: sa-update:3 unknown option 'notifyempty' -- ignoring line By the way, I don't have a file named "sa-update" I understand the problem is a typo, namely 'notifyempty' should be 'notifempty' but I don't know where to make the change. I don't really want to have to scan every file in the system looking for the 'nofityempty' string.
  14. I thought I had mdkonline running. At least I executed it and I thought it would notify me of any software updates. However, I'm not getting any notifications. Is there something else I should be doing?
  15. Still have issues with VirtualBox non-OSE latest and greatest on 2009.1(host) and WinXP client with kde 4.2.2. I also had this problem on 2009.0 with the previous versions of VirtualBox. Namely, for me to be able to access any usb device, the device needs to be plugged into the usb port when I first bring up Mandriva. Then when I bring up VirtualBox and WinXP I can see the devices listed and active. If I don't have the device plugged in at system startup, the entry is grayed out when I bring up VirtualBox/WinXP and is not available.
