      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. 2 cards & 2 monitors

    This is my system: 64 bit box running a fast AMD processor, two flat screen Samsung monitors (digital) two Msi N 9400 Gt video cards. Running Mandriva 2010 64 bit OS. The system starts on one monitor while loading and switches to the other monitor to operate. I have tried to install the newest Nvidia drivers. Do I have to change something in command mode to get this setup to work?
  2. wireless

    I have Mandriva 2010 installed on an external usb hardrive. The laptop is a HP Dv9628nr with a broadcom wireless internal card. I have got urpmi to install most of the drivers except some part of the b43 files. Can someone help get my wireless up and working? [moved from Laptops and Portable Devices by spinynorman]
