  1. Personally, I've always believed that backward-compatibility is something that has to be thrown out the window from time to time when it's simply not feasible. 64-bit to 32-bit compatibility was tackled by Apple/Macintosh when they went from 68040 to PowerPC back in the 90's. I'm flabbergasted that when PC went from 32 to x86_64 that no one actually began to seriously run 64-bit OS as the norm. Yes, servers are running 64-bit but the desktop OS is still 32-bit I'd estimate 99% or higher. Someday I hope everyone goes to 64-bit OS and something like Parallels running 32-bit environment for those must-have applications that didn't port.
  2. Ok, so while playing around with beryl, I've figured out how to make it look and work like compiz defaults. So, nevermind - I'm an idiot.
  3. Ok, now I'm really in trouble - Compiz isn't working at all. Tried some fixes from the Compiz.org discussions, but now it won't launch at all. Manually launching at command line says there's another manager running on screen 0 and no screens available 0:0 # compiz compiz: Another composite manager is already running on screen: 0 compiz: No managable screens found on display :0.0 I've uninstalled all the nvidia RPMs, uninstalled compiz, ran the pkg1.run file from NVIDIA for 9629 drivers. Verified OpenGL and GLX is running via glxgears and an openGL screensaver and game. Reinstalled compiz RPMs. rebooted, ran drak3d to enable with AIGLX. Won't launch. drak3d to enable with XGL, get a white spash and then nothing but white screens. As a sidenote, running beryl with beryl-manager also results in the same message, but running beryl with # beryl works fine. Personally, I don't like the feel of beryl as much as compiz, so I'd prefer to use compiz. Any advice?
  4. Doing some homework - finding out that this probably relates to a gtk-window-decorator or something. Someone recommends installing gnome-window-decorator RPM, just wondering - I'm using KDE, will this be the appropriate RPM?
  5. I had Compiz working with XGL and 8774 drivers, but upgraded to 9629 drivers from NVIDIA proper and now have to use AIGLX - XGL won't work. Also, in AIGLX, the windows lack the window bars and decorations as well as I can't move them with Alt-drag. Any suggestions what is causing this?

  6. Hello, I was just wondering, I recently installed Mandriva 64-bit on my father-in-law's new computer and then went to install a couple apps that need to compile, like parallels, with the kernel. I got an error for various kernel source files that it says aren't installed. This brings me to my question: Is there any drawback to running 64-bit linux and then installing 32-bit apps where there isn't a 64-bit version or source files available? (ok, 2 questions) How do I go about installing these? ( I have the 64-bit source files installed and other 64-bit apps compile properly) Thanks
  7. Ok, I got it fixed. Here's what the problem seemed to be (or one of these was the problem) 1. Copied /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc.rpmsave to /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc 2. installed kernel from MDE 3. rebooted and installed kernel-source- from MDE 4. rebooted and ran NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8762-pkg1.run from hard drive (had previously downloaded it). Rebooted and all OK now.
  8. PS-Fixed sound issue. Working on KDM and the kdmrc file.
  9. Hello, I recently reinstalled clean Mandriva 2006.0 (official) and then patched to 3.5.3 from MDE but now I get no KDM even though I selected it in MCC - it defaults to XDM and then won't log into KDE- gets stuck in a loop at the login screen. I used GDM and it will login to KDE and give a proper GUI login. Any suggestions how I can get KDM back up and running? If I go into failsafe from Lilo then init 3 then startx I get to KDE. As a side note: my sound and ARTs isn't working either.

  11. Ok, I'm familiar with the ServerVTs=-7 line that had to be added to the previous /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc but I beleive MDE fixed this perviously. I've installed the Multimedia Kernel from the MDE repository and once again, there's no mouse movement when using this kernel. I went back to my old kernel and it works ok. Just curious if this is an easy fix that I'm overlooking? I've already installed the source for the kernel [moved from Installing Mandriva by spinynorman]
  12. Hmm, nope - didn't work. I've installed Kubuntu for the moment just to see if I'm going to take the easy way out with a clean-install with 3.5.2 already included, but so far I'm hating it. Out of curiosity, has anyone made a full distro image with Mandriva 2006 and MDE/KDE 3.5.2 yet? That would be awesome!
  13. Ok, here's what I'm currently doing - if this doesn't work then I'll clean install mandriva; sudo dd if=/dev/sda1 of=/dev/sdb3/sda1 sudo umount /dev/sda1 <run Qtparted and format sda1> sudo mount -rw /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 sudo dd if=/mnt/sdb3/sda1 of=/dev/sda1 <reboot mandriva and see if anything changed> Anyway, it may not change a darn thing, but at least I'll know. Now to just wait for dd to finish
  14. I don't understand. Is it still failing to find superblocks in Knoppix? sudo dumpe2fs -h /dev/sda1 dumpe2fs 1.38 (30-Jun-2005) Filesystem volume name: root Last mounted on: <not available> Filesystem UUID: 4c3b741d-0858-4998-9b78-34b3e804b99e Filesystem magic number: 0xEF53 Filesystem revision #: 1 (dynamic) Filesystem features: has_journal filetype sparse_super Default mount options: (none) Filesystem state: clean Seems like the drive integrity is fine. Are you saying that the linux kernel or something is corrupted and that's why I should reinstall? Forgive me if I seem stubborn, but I'd hate to revert to a windows-like solution of format and reinstall.
  15. Also, I've checked and my udevstart and all the udev files in /sbin have been updated as of yesterday - the day I got this issue.
