      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. Can you recommend a wireless card?

    Silver Surfer I thank you for your continued support - I am really puzzled (not that it takes much)as I did have this system running successfully with the wireless card on a earlier version of Mandriva (2007 I think it was). I visited the Belkin site and the driver download appears be a one size fits all for XP and Win 98. I have found a ArchWiki page on Broadcom 4312 - 43xx cards. when i enter the command lspci| grep BCM43 I get confirmation that the network controller is BCM4306 - which does not appear to be covered by this wiki page but suggests a web site where I may find the b43 driver....my next stop. If you don't mind I may come back to you for assistance.. Regards to you erniev
  2. Can you recommend a wireless card?

    Thank you K Bergen, I carried out as suggested get i586 in the top line. I thought so but it is good to confirm this. Thanking you ev
  3. Can you recommend a wireless card?

    I'm sure I installed 32 bit Mandriva - is there a way I can confirm this? ev
  4. Can you recommend a wireless card?

    SiverSurfer Yes - it does make sense thank you - however still some difficulty I tried a number of path options to the inf file for the ndiswrapper -e but always got the message "No such file or directory exists" however when I tried it with ndiswrapper -i with the same path ( /home/ev/WiFi/bcmwl5a.inf) I get the message already installed. So it reconises the path (I am assuming) for the install command but not for the -e command. However I am sure there is something I am not doing - Thankyou ev
  5. Can you recommend a wireless card?

    Thank you - the result from ndiswrapper - l : bcmlw5 driver installed device (14E4:4320) present (alternate driver ssb) bcmlw5a driver installed device (14E4:4320) present (alternate driver ssb) I'm reading this as the driver and the device are identified ...but for some reason I cannot get them working together to give me internet access. Is there anything else I can do? thank you ev
  6. Can you recommend a wireless card?

    Yes I have tried using ndiswrapper and pointing it to the location of the xp drivers but get various messages: Unable to find the ndiswrapper interface... Unable to find network interface for selected device (using (ndiswrapper) The card I have is F5D7001 uk - I welcome any further suggestion Thank you ev
  7. I bought a copy of Powerpack 2010 but have failed to get wireless connectivity. The card I am currently using is a Belkin Wirless G Desktop Network card - and I have now given up trying to get it working. Can anyone suggest a wireless card that they know to work with Powerpack 2010? Thank you, erniev
  8. I have purchased the 2010 Powerpack and will install on a 70gig hard drive with XP. I got a little confused with the installation and may have made a wrong entry somewhere - the installation is not yet complete... I can resize my hard drive giving approx half to XP and half to Mandriva. I had previously used Mandrive and it had set up the directories automatically but for some reason I am asked to set up the directories individually. Can you advise what directories I need to get started and how much space to allocate.... or would I be better cancelling the installation and starting from the beginning again? Thanks ernie

  13. Thanks to everyone who helped my previous post on installing LAME to hep with creating mp3 files. Now If I could ask another question - having created some mp3 files - how do I now copy them to my mp3 player. I get as far as connecting the USB cable but then I am lost - I cannot find the mp3 player on the desktop and my Linux knowledge is such that I would not know where to look in the folders. Is there something I should be doing that will allow me to view the mp3 players and copy files to it? My mp3 player is a Sopny Walkman NWZ-A818 Thank you ernie [moved from Software by Greg2]
