    KDE 4.3.5

    4.3.5 is a bug fx release, 4.4.0 will be a new release with new bugs but neoclust has also packaged 4.4.0 for mandriva 2010.0 if you are adventurous, I actually did try it, I didn't encounter many bugs but too many of the new features drove me to insanity...popups and tooltips everywhere, windows maximizing at random, the desktop going to some overview mode with miniature windows at random and still basic functionality missing since kde4 has made me switch to gnome
  2. So, I bet there are dozens of ofd supporters editting ooxml in favour of odf too, thats just wikipedia. People should know better than to trust wikipedia as a reliable source of information anyway, its just politics...
  3. it will be a few months I would guess before opera 10 final will be released and we will see a few new features appears too in the mean time, I would reckon
  4. I dont think you can get rid of that error unless you buy a wireless cards whose driver supports nl80211 but it is a harmless error...
  5. mdkapplet (the update notifier) will offer you a dist-upgrade, it will also handle config files (so no etc-update needed anymore)
  6. here is the old bugreport https://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=47508 upstream kde bug: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=186601 btw: I forgot I have this problem but only in desktopview; I changed to folderview which I prefer anyway
  7. I would remove all your sources NOW because cooker is unfrozen en 2010 packages are in the repos. If you updated regulary and used mirrorlist it should automatically switch but to make sure go to configure your sources and remove them all to avoid key problems from cooker mailing list today Â
  8. I have seen this bug during cooker but is was fixed for me a while ago
  9. squashfs-lzma-kernel-desktop586-latest-3.3-1.20090421.10mdv2009.1 lzma-kernel- squashfs-lzma-kernel-3.3-10mdv2009.1 squashfs-lzma-kernel- vboxadditions-kernel- vboxadditions-kernel-desktop586-latest-2.2.0-1.20090422.4mdv2009.1 lzma-kernel-desktop586-latest-4.43-1.20090421.27mdv2009.1 these you could remove, they are for running on the live-cd and/or in virtualbox but you could leave them too
  10. Neoclust makes all mdv kde packages anyway, has been for years.
  11. All variants of ubuntu always run considerably slower than mdv for me but than again ubuntu runs much faster than opensuse...intrepid ibex was so painfully slow though that I really didnt use it at all...
  12. I would first check to see if pulse is running: ps aux | grep pulse if it runs try changing the volume in the apps themselves a bit, I have noticed the sound sometimes is muted even though volume is high. If this doesn't work, disable glitch free.
  13. playonlinux might also be worth mentioning as an alternative
  14. ermm this is a joke or you meant to say Does ubuntu support nvidia drivers out of the box?, right? No seriously because previously you would always need to hunt for nvidia drivers on ubuntu, since 8.10 has dkms it's a little better but it's still no mandriva (I have never seen a driver upgrade in ubuntu, never, whilst in mdv I always have the latest drivers without hassles) for many years mdv has installed proprietary driver out of the box for one and powerpack whilst ubuntu only gave free drivers....
  15. Which is sort of my point if I cant do anything about dont bother (youare not bothering because you turned notifications of completely). Anyway to repeat linux has a fairly decent notification system, why change it,to something which has less features (and probably more bugs) than the present system.Â
  16. I am saying Ubuntu's notifications suck big time compared to the default gnome and I hope it will never make it into gnome or worse as a freedesktop.org standard. Notifications need to be interactive, else do not bother with them.
  17. have you checked the backports? edit:nevermind it's not there
  18. Well it is a problem when you have a small ultrawide screen and I don't like top panels period This is per design, just as the fact that they are non-interactive, those are just about the only notifications I don't want to see Another thing: they seem to have ripped out the functionality to switch between mutliple sound devices out of the volume applet, I can see it on upstream screenshots and it's there in mdv
  19. I changed to a single bottom panel setup, instead of the space wasting 2 panel setup, I moved the notification area but the notification seem hardcoded (or some pretty hidden config) to appear in the default top right. It has nothing to do with pidgin either, this is by design and a very annoying design, I really hope this gets dropped and instead libnotify gets some live to make them look nicer...Â
  20. I hate the new notification system though, They appear on the wrong part of the screen (top right, whilst my noticiation area is bottom right), I cant seem to click them away, so they are just there blocking my view. When using pidgin, it isnt possible to see the network status because pidgin notifications are appearing, clicking on pidgin notifications does nothing...who thought of this stupid system...it is a serious usability regression...
  21. Aaron Seigo has sort off admitted that the notification for filecopying was rather flawed, atm they are looking at reverting to 4.1 behaviour of try to keep the notification open longer but imho such a big flaw should have been fixed with the first possible update and not be discussed/looked into...
  22. I lost many GB of downloaded HD movies like this already :(
  23. Told you go to Anssi :P seriously usually a bugreport isn't even necessary, just a quick chat on irc; glad you got it fixed though
  24. It's a she ;) and it's definitively not the same bug, in fact the bug reported in that thread isn't even a bug, the built bots just need time to build a non-essential package. But I already said here, go to IRC and speak with Anssi
  25. my suggestion is to take this up with Anssi on the mandriva-cooker irc channel; he is on military service, so not always at the computer but when he is there quick to reply and submit fixes...
