      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. Is anyone aware that the URL's in the FAQ's table of contents are all incorrect. They still point to mandrakeusers which does not work
  2. I've got 2006 powerpack up and running nicely and I would like to have a look at community and possibly cooker. There are empty partitions on my hard drive but i can't understand the structure of the mirrors. On ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/Mandrakelinux/ I've found 1) official/2006.0/i586/media/main 2) official/current/i586/media/main 3) devel/cooker/i586/media/main 4) devel/community/i586/media/main 5) devel/2006.0/i586/media/main I'm not clear what the differences between some of these are, particularly 1) and 2); and between 3) 4) and 5) . I'd be most grateful if someone could explain it to me TIA petew
  3. The good old intel 536ep modem

    I have a 536ep which I have managed to get working. I am still using LM9.0 but my solution may be of some help to you. After booting up if I try to start kppp the machine locks up and the keyboard ceases to function and I have to power off and reboot. However if, before starting kppp, I launch minicom, wait for about 20 - 30 seconds until an AT line appears on the terminal screen and then close minicom I can then start kppp and the modem works perfectly until I have to reboot and then I have to go through the same process again. I've no idea what minicom does but it solves the problem for me. HTH petew
