  1. How can one set the access permissions of /dev/net/tun accross reboots? I've changed the "tun" entry in /etc/udev/rules.d/50-mdk.rules to read like this: KERNEL="tun", SYMLINK="net/%k", MODE="0666" But the permission is 0600 after reboot nevertheless. [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  2. Hm, no, it hasn't helped. I have a local named, but it is running with -4. So it shouldn't issue IPV6 requests, should it?
  3. When I try sending a mail message via the smarthost there are ipv6 name requests sent out which won't be answered. This results in a long delay when sending mail. When I hardcode the ip address of smarthost into /etc/hosts mail is send out much faster. Is there a means to restrict name resolution to ipv4 only without making entries in /etc/hosts?
  4. I didn't realize that these pushbuttons "proceed to step 2" and "proceed to step 3" are realy pushbuttons. So after clicking them the urpmi.addmedia instructons appear in step 3.
  5. After selecting the mirrors in step 2 in Easy Urmi http://www.mandrivausers.org/easyurpmi/index.php I expected to see a command line in step 3 below "Type this in a console as root". But there appears nothing. What's wrong?
  6. If X is running you should be able to switch to X by pressing Alt-F7. If X is not running how can you switch to it? You must first start X. /etc/init.d/dm start.
  7. Under IceWM some themes have their own background iamgae. If a theme doesn't have a background image the one with the blue stars is displayed. What is the recommended way to change the background image under IceWM for those themes that don't have their own background image? [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  8. I have installed mozilla-firefox-1.0.2-3mdk so far. When I try to deinstall it via rpm -ev mozilla-firefox I get 'Failed dependencies' errors. It seems that some files are also needed by epiphany-1.4.8-8mdk. So should I leave the mozilla-firefox-1.0.2-3mdk and install the one from mozilla.org somewhere else?
  9. My Mandriva installation comes with Firefox 1.02. What is the recommended way to upgrade Firefox? Should I drop the old Firefox package and install 1.06 from mozilla.org? Or is there a Mandriva Firefox rpm somewhere? [moved from Installing Mandriva by spinynorman - welcome aboard :)]
  10. When I start xconsole it tells: Couldn't open console How can I make xconsole open the console?
