      Mandriva Official Documentation

      Official documentation for extant versions of Mandriva can be found at doc.mandriva.com.   Documentation for the latest release may take some time to appear there. You can install all the manuals from the main repository if you have Mandriva installed - files are prefixed mandriva-doc.

      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. Canon PIXMA MP280 All-In-One

    I'm considering switching back to Mandriva after trying out other distros. I need to know if my Canon PIXMA MP280 all-in-one will work using Mandriva? I finally got it to print and scan in Kubuntu 11.10, but could not get it to scan in other distros because I could not get the scangear drivers/application to install.
  2. Canon PIXMA MP280 All-In-One

    Thanks for the info! It's greatly appreciated!
  3. Canon PIXMA MP280 All-In-One

    No Mandriva users have used this particular Canon all-in-one?
  4. Thunderbird 3 is out

    I would have to disagree.
  5. Are there any issues with installing Mandriva 2010 as a dual boot with Windows 7? I'm considering dual booting them, but heard something about Linux not recognizing Windows 7 as an operating system, but as a file or something like that.
  6. Dual Boot Mandriva 2010 with Windows 7

    I did the install of Mandriva 2010 Powerpack edition as a dual boot with Windows 7 early this morning and it went without a hitch. I am dual booting without any issues at all.
  7. Dual Boot Mandriva 2010 with Windows 7

    That's interesting.
  8. OpenOffice

  9. I have the 32-bit version of Mandriva 2008 installed, but since my system uses a duo core 64-bit processor, I was thinking of installing the 64-bit version of Mandriva 2008. Are there any issues I should be concerned about. Is flashplayer installed by default in the 64-bit edition?
  10. Login Window as Root

    Ever since I began using Linux, which was roughly 5-6 years ago, I have always preferred to login as "root" and absolutely nobody is going to change my mind about it. It's called "freedom of choice" and the "Linux Police" will never get me to change my mind about it.
  11. Flash Problems [solved]

    I think the problem is with Firefox 3.0.4 as it happens also with the Windows version of the version of Firefox running on Windows Vista. Had no problems with the previous version of Firefox in Mandriva 2009 or Windows Vista.
  12. I see nothing "arrogant" about his post. What I DO see is a lot of FRUSTRATION. As an Admin, you should be able to tell the difference.
  13. Mandriva Linux 2009 RC2 is available

    I did the upgrade via urpmi and my system was pretty much intact, other than some files not being able to be installed during the upgrade process. Grub didn't pick up my Vista partition, and my Ethernet card was not detected due to supprt being disabled since it is one of the effect cards, so I had no internet connection, so I reinstalled 2008.1 Powerpack edition. Hope this corruption issue with the ethernet cards gets fixed soon!
  14. Mandriva Linux 2009 RC2 is available

    I'm using the 64-bit 2008.1 Powerpack edition. How do I upgrade to 2009 RC-2 using urpmi?
  15. Mandriva Linux 2009 RC1 is available

    Is it safe to upgrade from 2008.1 to 2009 RC1 using the repositories?
  16. 64-Bit Mandriva 2008 [solved]

    Thanks guys.
  17. I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 5100-5022 notebook with the AMD Turion 64x2 processor and ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 video chipset, and am looking for a Linux distro that will run on that machine. Will Mandriva 2007 run on this machine? Does Mandrive 2007 come with the drivers for the ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 chipset, or will I have to download and install them from somewhere? I've used Mandriva in the past, and loved it, and want to dual boot the new notebook with XP Media Edition and a Linux distro, preferrably Mandriva if possible.

  18. urpmi database locked [solved]

    This morning I attempted to use urpmi and I get an error message telling me that the urpmi database is locked! How on earth do I unlock it? UPDATE: The problem seems to have fixed itself.
  19. urpmi database locked [solved]

    I think I may have attempted to use urpmi while the online updater was checking for updates, and did not notice that it was checking for updates.
  20. I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I upgraded my Windows XP to Windows Vista, and find that I do not like it, and want to replace it. I've heard that Vista uses a new version of NTFS, and I was wanting to know if Mandriva 2007.1 will be able to format the hard drive and install, hence replacing Windows Vista? Any help would be appreciated.
  21. Replacing Windows Vista With Mandriva

    Yes, I'm planning on giving the entire hard drive to Mandriva.
