      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. Mageia 2 Start up

    Hi, I was guessing and guessed wrong. I can't see any systemd config files for dmraid (dm.service is something to do with display manager) on Mageia. Unless you can find something in MCC (services section) you might want to ask the Mageia devs for help or they might create a dmraid.service file for you.
  2. Mageia 2 Start up

    Since Mageia is using systemd try: systemctl list-unit-files |grep dmraid If you've got a "dmraid.service" file (that's its name on Arch) then try: systemctl enable dmraid.service as root. Hopefully it'll be that easy but I don't use dmraid so don't know :)
  3. Alternative distribution [solved]

    I switched to Arch in February when we didn't really know what would happen to Mandriva & Mageia. I'm still using that same installation, rolling along. It's very good, well worth trying. :)
  4. RT2870 wireless, what's going on in dmesg?

    Not sure what's going on but I take it both adapters don't work in Mandriva. Have you installed the rt2870-firmware from the Non-Free media? If not, I'd try that :)
  5. KMail, Akonadi, MySQL, D-Bus ... driving me nuts!

    No idea if it'll solve the problems (I don't use kmail) but you could try updating to the MIB KDE 4.5.3. 32bit & 64bit are here: http://mib.pianetalinux.org/MIB/2010.1/others/kde/4.5.3/
  6. mysql-workbench-gpl-5.2.25 mandriva rpm

    There's mysql-workbench-oss-5.2.27-1mdv2010.1.i586.rpm in Contrib Backports. If that's what you're looking for here's a link :)
  7. How to force "KDED Status Notifier watcher" to run

    I'd try having a look at the file: /home/you/.kde4/share/config/kdedrc That file includes these two lines amongst others: [Module-statusnotifierwatcher] autoload=true Try editing the file (or you could rename it kdedrc.old) then logout and login again. Also I'd check your user has write access to the file. Hope that helps. :)
  8. Google Earth 5 with Mandriva 2010.0 - 64 bit

    Which nvidia driver package did you install? NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-256.44-no-compat32.run or NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-256.44.run? Works fine here on 2010.1 64bit.
  9. HP Photosmart B109a Multi unit [solved]

    Well, I wouldn't have thought of that :) Glad it's fixed.
  10. HP Photosmart B109a Multi unit [solved]

    Hi, Probably not much help but are task-printing-hp and task-printing-server are installed?
  11. Hi, When at the black screen could you try pressing Ctrl+Alt+F12 and seeing if any log output is there. Might help you if there is. Or try Ctrl+Alt+F1 and see if you get a login screen.
  12. Missing packages in x86_64 repositories?

    Not sure about the others but libdvdcss2 is in PLF Free but it's called lib64dvdcss2 :)
  13. Wireless driver

    I'm guessing BCMWL is Broadcom wireless so I'd try the broadcom-wl or dkms-broadcom-wl driver which you'll find in the official non-free media.
  14. Can't load java plugin for Firefox

    The plugin works ok on 2010.1 cooker so something you can look forward to if you upgrade :)
  15. Can't load java plugin for Firefox

    Hi, If you look in here you'll find java-1.6.0-sun- If that's the one you installed (I can't find a, just below it you'll see java-1.6.0-sun-plugin- That's the plugin for browsers.
