  1. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. Well, I wouldn't have thought of that :) Glad it's fixed.
  10. 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. Not sure about the others but libdvdcss2 is in PLF Free but it's called lib64dvdcss2 :)

    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. The plugin works ok on 2010.1 cooker so something you can look forward to if you upgrade :)
  15. 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.
  16. Assuming Firefox is asking you to open with or save as... open with: add urpmi media.
  17. First you'll have to click on 'Easy URPMI' at the top of this page and add PLF Medias. Once that's done, install lame. Lame does the mp3 encoding on Linux. To rip a cd try K3B, KAudioCreator, Audex or Gnormalize.
  18. Thought I'd give cdemu a try and very handy it is. Always nice to find linux ways of doing things :) For KDE support there's kde-cdemu-manager. It's in the cooker but might not be available for 2009.1.
  19. Not sure if this is what you're after but I'd try IsoBuster through wine. You should be able to mount the .nrg files and extract all of the audio tracks/files to .wav which you can then convert to flac. If it doesn't detect your burner go to Options - Communication - Interface and change it to SPTI.
  20. Similar problem here. Looks like the test function is a bit buggy :) I upgraded 2010.0 to cooker around alpha time and it's been working very well.
  21. You can try pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1, login as root and then: less /var/log/kdm.log
  22. Had a look at the laptop again and it's running wl & ssb (doesn't use b44) happily so I think b44 is your problem. b44 is for your ethernet card while ssb has something to do with pcmcia. b44 depends on ssb (modinfo b44 as root) so that might be your problem. Wouldn't know how to fix it but there's bound to be a way :)
  23. Hi, Have that wifi chip on a laptop here and just needed to install the broadcom-wl-kernel-desktop-latest package to get it working. Your /var/log/messages seems to suggest it's installed but the network config tool didn't install it automatically for me. So perhaps check it's actually installed and is the right version for your kernel. If you have installed it this isn't very helpful :)
  24. Hi, When using the vesa driver you could try running 'drakx11' from a terminal as root. See if that sorts things out. Or maybe this helps: http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/2010.0_Errata#KMS_is_not_well_supported_by_some_Intel_graphic_cards If it's very new hardware it might not be supported yet.
  25. I probably should have realised you'd realised :) I've made a couple of dvb cards work and both were annoying. IIRC, some modules the cards needed were loaded but 1 or 2 other modules always got missed so they had to be loaded by force by putting their names in /etc/modprobe.conf or /etc/modprobe.preload. Not much help but perhaps something you could look into. Maybe post the output of lsmod here?
