      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. dbus doesn't work in 2009.0 [solved]

    Well I guess I can mark this as solved. It had to do with the network login. There was an error in the nsswitch.conf file. Finally got it working again just after I made the post.
  2. So, I upgraded from 2008.1 to 2009.0 the day it came out. Things were great until I realized that no USB devices were recognized. Argh! I found out that my system was still using an old version of dbus. I upgraded dbus, libdbus, dbus-x11, etc. and got rid of every package that had a 2008.1 extension with that of the package with a 2009.0 extension. Viola, I could find my usb drives. Things were great for about a week and a half, then yesterday, I had to reboot my computer and system message bus won't start again. KDE is not finding my usb drives. What is wrong? Here is the error it gets during bootup: Starting System Message Bus: /bin/bash: line 1: 1930 segmentation fault dbus-daemon --system the number 1930 changes from time to time and seems to be a random 4-digit number between 1000 and 3000. Also, when the system gets to 'Starting Preload Daemon [OK]' it hangs for about 5 minutes before it will let me log in.
  3. Mandriva Linux 2009 RC1 is available

    I wish they would have put more effort into the upgrade process prior to calling it a 'release candidate'. Will people be able to upgrade to the final Mandriva 2009 without a hitch?
  4. How to change Compiz theme?

    upgrade to beryl and install emerald-themes, it has like 25 themes. Get rid of compiz and compiz-quinnstorm, it is old (2 months is a long time to me) and has way less options than beryl.
  5. Beryl 0.1.3

    Beryl 0.1.3 rpms are now in the contrib_backport databases. It's a decent upgrade, but the important thing is now you can get all of the packages easily using: urpmi beryl-core
  6. IPP request fail on Mandriva 2007 [solved]

    nice, I was having the same types of problems adding a printer in kde. I just went to localhost:631 in firefox and added a random printer. For some reason, after that everything worked in the printer control center.
  7. azureus not starting [solved]

    Thanks! Azureus works now that I downloaded it from sourceforge :)
  8. azureus not starting [solved]

    I'm glad someone else is getting this problem, I thought it was just my system. It seems like since I upgraded to mandriva 2007, azureus won't run. I have tried old versions of azureus as well and nothing will help. I have googled this problem and found not help either (just some web page in italian or something saying he has the same problem). I haven't found anything yet to get around this segmentation fault.
  9. azureus not starting [solved]

    How did you get it working? All I did was urpmi azureus and I get a segmentation fault. I have sun java, but it doesn't seem necessary for azureus to run. I have tried un-installing and re-installing it and keep getting segmentation fault at /usr/share/java-utils/java-functions: line 116
  10. Feedback about kde-3.5.5 MDE rpms

    Well I would like to say that I think the kde 3.5.5 rpms are excellent. I think you have done a great job and have noticed updates fairly regularly. I like that I can just start urpmi and come back with my system updated rather than going through the work to compile it myself. I also really like your theme, after upgrading to mandriva 2007, I was waiting for that theme once again. If I come up with any suggestions I will leave them on the board. Thanks!!!
  11. Problem with kdepim

    after updated the kdepim-suite, urpmi still wants to update libkdepim2-common and libkdepim2-index. It seems that libkdepim2-index isn't satisfied by your libkdepim2, but libkdepim2-common is. Also, for some reason since I updated the kdepim-suite that I lost my icons in the menu for kontact, kmail, etc. Even after removing and re-installing the packages, I had to manually put the icons in my menu. Anybody else have these problems?
  12. XGL - Mandriva 2007 Free - Nvidia - Howto

    nevermind, I just got beryl working right :)
  13. XGL - Mandriva 2007 Free - Nvidia - Howto

    I get a white screen too. Did you get xgl working with the new nvidia drivers? I also have the same problem with beryl, thought it was just a beryl thing but I think it's the new nvidia drivers
  14. beryl

    There are three missing packages from the cooker mirrors. I built them so that you don't have to. This is for beryl 0.1.0 which is an upgrade from compiz-quinnstorm 0.0.13. Enjoy! I just found out the makefile is not working right and it only semi-works, sorry
  15. PLF/PLF-Free Issues

    That's because this topic was from april :)
