  1. I am unable to boot 2008.1 normally. When booting in safe mode, the following message is displayed: Sound server informational message Error while initializing the sound driver device: default can't be opened for playback (connection refused) the sound server will continue using the null output device
  2. Are you running any sound applications like Amarok when you run VMWare?
  3. I'm using VMWare Workstation 6.0.3 on Mandriva 2008 Spring with no issues. My Win XP guest has the sound device set to "autodetect"
  4. I've simply logged into KDE and installed the original rpms from the CD (copied to a new folder) using: rpm --Uvh --oldpackage * You will need to cd /home/ xxxx to that folder first.
  5. Soon after starting Gnome, the panel crashes. This is the error message: Distribution: Mandriva Linux release 2008.1 (Official) for i586 Gnome Release: 2.22.0 2008-03-26 (Mandriva) BugBuddy Version: 2.22.0 System: Linux 2.6.24.4-desktop-3mnb #1 SMP Mon May 5 18:09:09 EDT 2008 i686 X Vendor: The X.Org Foundation X Vendor Release: 10400090 Selinux: No Accessibility: Disabled GTK+ Theme: Ia Ora Blue Icon Theme: Neu Memory status: size: 0 vsize: 0 resident: 0 share: 0 rss: 0 rss_rlim: 0 CPU usage: start_time: 0 rtime: 0 utime: 0 stime: 0 cutime:0 cstime: 0 timeout: 0 it_real_value: 0 frequency: 0 ----------- .xsession-errors --------------------- SIOCETHTOOL: Operation not supported SIOCETHTOOL: Operation not supported SIOCETHTOOL: Operation not supported (gnome-panel:7119): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: gsignal.c:1669: signal `set-current' is invalid for instance `0x8181b98' (gnome-panel:7119): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: gsignal.c:1669: signal `set-current' is invalid for instance `0x834e800' (gnome-panel:7119): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: gsignal.c:1669: signal `set-current' is invalid for instance `0x834e840' (gnome-panel:7119): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: gsignal.c:1669: signal `set-current' is invalid for instance `0x834e880' (gnome-panel:7119): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: gsignal.c:1669: signal `set-current' is invalid for instance `0x834e8c0' (gnome-panel:7119): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: gsignal.c:1669: signal `set-current' is invalid for instance `0x834e900' -------------------------------------------------- Seems to have been caused by a recent update of one of the following: gnome-themes-extras timezone timezone-java
  6. gtkpod 0.99.12 (with libgpod 0.6.0) does work with current generation iPod Nanos, and I have been using it without issue for several months. You will need to set up your iPod's directories using gtkpod, and may need to modify its iPod_Control/Device/SysInfo file as detailed in the following readme contained in the libgpod 0.6 source file available from sourceforge.
  7. Mandriva Control Center has disappeared from my Gnome menus, so I needs to add it What's the path to the control center?
  8. SUSE is the primary system, that is GRUB as installed by SUSE is the first bootloader from which LILO as installed by Mandriva is then selected.
  9. I need to reinstall lilo. I have Mandriva on my second hard drive (/dev/sdb), with SUSE on the primary drive (/dev/sda). After using mandrake control center to change from lilo to GRUB my system no longer boots. I have tried using the reinstall boot-loader facility in system rescue, but this fails to result in a bootable system. Is it possible to reinstall lilo using a system upgrade, without altering the system otherwise. Alternatively, is it possible to reinstall lilo directly from the system installer.

  11. After upgrading nVidia drivers on 2007.1 nvidia-settings no longer runs correctly. The following error is reported on startup: " You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server. " X server is using the nVidia drivers, as the nVidia splash-screen displays on start up, and all Xorg.conf file driver references refer to "nvidia". Any thoughts?
  12. I need the location of update mirrors for 2007.1 Official so I can manually enter them in MCC. Each time I try to download details via the control center, I get the following error: "There was an error downloading the mirror list: Couldn't connect. The network or the Mandriva website may be unavailable. Please try again later."
  13. Why not create share folders in each distribution, then modify /etc/fstab to mount the /home from the other distributions at those shared folders. I currently do that to allow file transfer between SUSE 10.3 and Mdv 2007.1 loaded on the same PC.
