  1. The new kernel is now moved to the main repository, so I installed it right away. I am now running with: The good thing is this results in a /dev/dsp, however now I only hear static...
  2. When booting with the new kernel I get a /dev/dsp device. However the nvidia module could not be found so I am not able to startx. When can we expect the new kernel to move to the main repository?
  3. I found the kernel you mean, the note says: Can I install this kernel without permanently destroying my system if things go wrong? I.e.: can I keep my old kernel and boot up my system with this old kernel if this new kernel breaks things?
  4. If you look at "root@localhost etc]" you would see that I have already did: "cd /etc/".
  5. The reboot is finished, but I still do not have /dev/dsp (so also no sound). This is what I get from dmesg: And this is what I get from "/proc/asound/cards": Best regards, Jethro
  6. Thanks for your reply! I do not have a "card*/" in "/proc/asound/", this is what I do have: [root@localhost etc]# ll /proc/asound/ total 0 -r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 2008-10-28 11:42 cards -r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 2008-10-28 11:42 devices -r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 2008-10-28 11:42 hwdep -r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 2008-10-28 11:42 modules dr-xr-xr-x 2 root root 0 2008-10-28 11:42 oss/ -r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 2008-10-28 11:42 pcm dr-xr-xr-x 2 root root 0 2008-10-28 11:42 seq/ -r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 2008-10-28 11:42 timers -r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 2008-10-28 11:42 version I modified my modprobe.conf, it now looks like this: root@localhost etc]# cat ./modprobe.conf install scsi_hostadapter /sbin/modprobe ahci; /sbin/modprobe ata_piix; /bin/true install usb-interface /sbin/modprobe ehci_hcd; /sbin/modprobe uhci_hcd; /bin/true alias eth0 e1000e remove snd-hda-intel /sbin/modprobe --first-time -r --ignore-remove snd-hda-intel install snd-hda-intel /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install snd-hda-intel options snd-hda-intel position_fix=1 model=acer remove unknown /sbin/modprobe --first-time -r --ignore-remove unknown install unknown /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install unknown alias snd-0 snd-hda-intel alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel It first contained entries with "snd_hda_intel", I changed these to "snd-hda-intel" and added the stuff you said. I am now going to reboot to see if this fixes my sound problem, I will report back here in a few minutes.
  7. Hi everybody, Since I have installed Mandriva 2009.0 I have no sound. This wasn't a problem under 2008.1 or any other previous versions. This is the output of "lspci | grep Audio": 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02) I do not seem to have a "/dev/dsp" audio device. I tried messing around with modprobe.conf, but I do not really seem to be able to fix the problem... Best regards, Jethro
  8. The sudo fsck /dev/sda7 command took a long time but eventually fixed everything. Thanks for the help!
  9. This comment lead me to try running fsck on /dev/sda7 instead of on a mounted partition. I just ran the following command: sudo fsck /dev/sda7 which results in the following output: I am looking at this screen for 10 minutes now. I am not sure if this command is supposed to take a long time. The size of the partition with errors is 187GB. I had an Ubunta disk nearby, if sudo fsck /dev/sda7 will not work from Ubuntu I will try sudo e2fsck -p /dev/sda7 from the Ubuntu disk. If that also does not work I will download a Mandriva disk. If everything else fails I will try this option.
  10. Hi everybody, I have been running Mandriva 2008.0 for a little while now without any major problems. Today I was working in Eclipse when all of a sudden my screen went black. When it can back on I was logged out of my KDE session. When I try to login it hangs after I supplied my username and password. I see the blue screen which says "LINUX Mandriva" (some kind of default startup screen). I tried to reboot my PC, during the boot process Mandriva tells me is is "Checking Filesystems", it kept hanging on this during a few tries. After these attempts I tried to boot into failsafe mode. Here the "Checking Filesystems" came to 100% but it said there were severe errors and that I should try to run "fsck". I booted into an Ubuntu live CD to see what's going on. I mounted the sda7 drive (which is the problem drive) to /media/disk in Ubuntu and was successfully able to open some files. I tried to run "fsck" from the live CD, but it kept complaining about a corrupt or missing superblock. At this point I was not able to boot Mandriva, not even to the point where I have to supply my username / password. I modified my /etc/fstab file and replaced the 2 at the end of the /dev/sda7 mount point (which is the problem drive) for a 0. This ensures that Mandriva is not going to check the filesystem on sda7. Using this approach I am successfully able to boot into Mandriva and supply my username and password. But after entering these two Mandriva hangs again at the blue screen which says "LINUX Mandriva". If I then hit CTRL-ALT-F1 I get to see what's going on. If I do this thousands of statements like keep flying by. I am looking at these things flying by for almost an hour now.

  11. Adding it to hosts does the trick, thank you everybody!
  12. Hi everybody, I have Mandriva 2007.1 installed on my desktop. I can use the network, go on the Internet, etc. So basically everything works well. I am getting my IP from a DHCP server. The only problem is that somehow I can not ping (or browse using Firefox) to the DNS names of local machines. For example: I have a machine in my network which is called "Pete", it has the IP "". I can ping to the IP address, but not to the DNS name. If I want to go to this PC using Firefox (Apache is running on "Pete") I can not do so by going to: http://Pete. However, going to works fine. Do I have to tweak a setting somewhere inside Mandriva to make this work? Best regards, Jethro
  13. Dear pmpatrick, Your solution sounded logical, but it doesn't work. I added the code to /etc/rc.d/rc.local which resulted in the command "./netfs restart" to be executed. This however produces the same error. This is what I see in dmesg now: Please note that this is a more complete copy/paste then the one in my first post. If I manually execute the following code after login in, everything works fine: cd /etc/rc.d/init.d/ ./netfs restart Best regards, Jethro
  14. Hi everybody, I have the following two entries in my fstab: // /home/jethro/mnt/muziek cifs rw,guest 0 0 //$ /home/jethro/mnt/Maven$ cifs rw,username=xxx,password=xxx 0 0 I want these two shares to be mounted automatically. However, I get the following error in dmesg: When I manually go to /etc/rc.d/init.d/ and run ./netfs restart, the mounting goes fine: Best regards, Jethro
  15. Well, in the first place I am interested as to how this is possible, because now that I think about it the problem is even weirder: I managed to install the Mandriva 2007.1 One Live CD, my USB keyboard works fine in grub afterwards. When I then try to install Mandriva 2007.1 from DVD, my USB keyboard does NOT work in the resulting booted screen, as a result of this the grub on my HD is started. The weird thing is that my USB keyboard does now does NOT work in grub. So basically it works in grub when I grub is started directly, however, when it is started after I tried to boot from DVD, the USB keyboard does NOT work. Besides that, when I install from DVD I have the nice option of configuring exactly what I want to install. I know I can add / remove packages after the Live CD install, but I feel it is nicer to do it from DVD.
