      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

  1. Network printer hp 2600

    Its a router. Got that one from the ICT dept.
  2. Network printer hp 2600

    A true network printer I guess, the printer printer is attached directly to a LAN network. No PC has direct control over it.
  3. Network printer hp 2600

    I used Konqueror to access "localhost:631". Cool. I'm impressed with this feature. My HP2600 network printer is listed on this page. Did a print test page before realising my network printer's 2month old black toner is out(i guess my 4 other mates print ebooks daily). Anyway got a new toner on friday, redo print test page and i get "usr/lib/cups/backend/samba failed" from http://localhost:631/printers . After installing hplip package from repos, retry to print test page. In the localhost:631 i got "unable to connect to CIFS host, will retry in 60 seconds...." More then five minutes now, still waiting....
  4. Network printer hp 2600

    Friends, What a relief to have my 2007.1 able to detect network printer hp 2600. During the detection, mandriva did prompt that it cant find the color driver. Then a black n white test page came out of the printer perfectly. Now when I try to print to this printer nothing happens. Why did the test page came out ok but not the document I want to print. Where to start? This is the second last item I need to solve to be independent of windoze.
  5. etc/minicom.users on this machine looks as similiar. [guess@localhost ~]$ cat /etc/minicom.users # $Id: minicom.users,v 2003/03/30 18:55:39 al-guest Exp $ # Minicom.users Access file for the minicom program. # # Format: Either just one username per line, or # a username followed by one or more # configuration-names.

  6. My boss had okayed me to do linux migration to one of our computer lab. The challange was to install mandriva to 60 PCs within hours. To make it worse, this lab had no network nor it had dvd drive. This core duo intel processor PC comes with just normal cd rom, floppy and usb slots. The fastest route to install was to use mandriva one cd which took around 15 minutes to install. Seems easy, right. But then this lab needs more than just whats packed inside mandriva one cd. For start I had downloaded gcc, gcc-devel and binutils for urpmi ftp and install them manually on each pc. From then on, new package can be compile on these pc. Details. As I choose mandriva2008.0, I download gcc,gcc-devel and binutils with 2008.0 version in their names. The ftp site nearest to you can be found from easy urpmi page. I suggest you do the step 1 and 2 properly to get the right folder for downloading. The i use firefox to go to that ftp site and downloaded the files i need. Pack them into my flash drive and install them in the computer lab using the command(as root): rpm -ivh foo.*.2008.0.rpm Almost without a sweat.

Seems like the Lang file doesn't surfaced. Anyway I tried looking into minicom.users file. Still trying. I'm a bit tied up now as another 60pc lab is migrating to linux and my boss okay'd me to use mandriva.
  8. I tried editing sudoer file thru visudo as root and added the line below: guess ALL=/usr/bin/minicom Restarted my CPU, when I tried minicom still I'm getting the response below: [guess@localhost ~]$ /usr/bin/minicom LANG/ja LANG/ko LANG/ru Cannot create lockfile. Sorry. Can anybody comment something.
  9. Thanks Ian. i've tried that with uucp group. No success. Here's the shell response [guess@localhost ~]$ su -c "gpasswd -a guess uucp" Password: Adding user guess to group uucp [guess@localhost ~]$ minicom LANG/ja LANG/ko LANG/ru Cannot create lockfile. Sorry. [guess@localhost ~]$ ls -l /dev/ttyS* crw-rw---- 1 guess uucp 4, 64 Jan 14 11:59 /dev/ttyS0 crw-rw---- 1 guess uucp 4, 65 Jan 14 11:59 /dev/ttyS1 crw-rw---- 1 guess uucp 4, 66 Jan 14 11:59 /dev/ttyS2 crw-rw---- 1 guess uucp 4, 67 Jan 14 11:59 /dev/ttyS3 I did try again adding guess to group root. User "Guess" can then start minicom. But if this is the case then I will have to restrict "guess" as not to change root password or edit sudoer file as in your other thread https://mandrivausers.org/index.php?showtopic=33038.
  10. Ive done migrating 60 desktop pc to Mandriva 2007.1 in my uni lab. Now i hope to get minicom runs with non-root users. Possibly I dont want to give my students root privilege, it might cause havoc. Furthermore can someone share what potential problem may rise when they(student) get minicom access.
  11. How to create DVD iso

    Recently I got myself mandriva 2007.1 which came in 2 double layers DVDs. DVD 1 contains i586 and x86_64. Now how do i create a seperate dvd with just x86_64 packages? Can anybody refer me to any page? Thanks
  12. Cannot boot into Linux

    Yes, permission problem. I can see some of my files using Konqueror ran as root in the folder lost and found.
  13. Cannot boot into Linux

    Using the command "df -h" I can see that /dev/hda6 still have 16G data and 6G free space. But why is my home folder empty from Konqueror's view?
  14. Cannot boot into Linux

    Early today an officemate gave me a Knoppix cd with an O'reilly book tittled Knoppix Hacks. When /dev/hdb6 cannot be mount in the Knoppix Desktop I was drawn to try the command "sudo gpart /dev/hdb6" and then when it finishes "sudo gpart -W /dev/hdb6 /dev/hdb6" at the end of the gpart(guess partition) I had to choose 1 of 4 guess variety. I chose 3 and later I found all files viewable in knoppix.(Now I wish I had stop here but i didnt) Having seen all my files being intact, I then exit Knoppix and switch my hdb from slave to master and try booting from it. When the machine does boot into Linux I then(confident all my files are intact on now hda6) installed Mandriva2006-Ultimate Linux Desktop to replace the free version on hda8. Now I can use the hd to boot into Linux and to my shock my /home folder is empty just like a fresh install. I'm sure I formated hda8 to install the Ultimate Linux Desktop but not hda6 where all my data file are kept. While typing this reply I am again trying what I did using Knoppix and wishing for the best. Thanks.
  15. Cannot boot into Linux

    I just tried Knoppix on my desktop PC. Hda6 cannot be mount. An error prompt window pop up. " Could not mount device. The reported error was: mount wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hha6, missing codepage or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so"
