  3. Hi everybody there ... It is impossible to resize the kde 4.4 desktop icons. The resized icons still active until you logout. When you relogin, the icons on the desktop go to the default small icons, simply they do not retain the customised icon size. Any help. Thanks.

  10. How to change mandriva Star in Kicker bar? Thanks a lot in advance. Fahd [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  11. Hi folks! Any help is acceptable. I changed my ati x300 video card to ati x1650, but unfortunately neighter mandy 2007, nor mandy spring rc3 could recognise the device correctly. I was forced to select xorgt:vesa driver settings in order to use xserver(GUI). I also downloaded the ati driver from ATI website, but unfortunately I got the same results. Of course i use windows as a reference point which may come in handy in such cases. It works very well (of course with appropriate windows drivers). I am frustrated due this ati x1650 driver lack. Thanks a lot in advance. Fahd [moved to hardware from everything linux by tyme]
  12. Why not Mandriva (the French distro) ? Fahd Budapest
  13. Will Mandy 2007.1, the upcoming spring version support intel Q965 Express Chipset? Thanks a lot. Fahd
  14. I wonder why Mandriva sells it's products (e.g. mandy 2007 and 2007.1) within the same versions instead of releasing them in service Pack forms. Selling for instance Mandriva Linux 2007 Powerpack Download version for almost 70-EUR is very cheap. If I were a manger in Mandriva Linux dept. I would have vended it for 150-EUR. However I would provide the official customers with updated versions in service Packs forms without any charge. Cause it is not fair to make any minor modifications and vend it of course for not a little charge. Just make a reasonable vend policy, not to monopolize the folks. The people all over the world have been using Windows XP for almost 6 years (for aprox. 200 US $), without any additional fees. If we compare this situation with Mandriva Linux and other Linux distros price policy, we would draw this conclusion: Linux is not as cheap as we guess. Return back to the above mentioned instance: Mandriva sells you the powerpack version for almost 80-EUR/half-year. This means that you would pay 800-EUR during 5 years. It is very expensive, ain't it? All of us know what is the difference between the two worlds, Linux and Microsoft Windows. Of course for me Linux is more massive and dynamic stuff, but we should take in consideration that money may be paid for products to be used in everywhere, not for not final releases. It is not same to talk frankly about drawbaks of price policy. We all as mandriva Linux advocators really appreciate the code weavers work at Mandriva (developers), howevers I reckon that the Management at Mandriva has gone in the incorrect way. Hopefully somebody would realize this in the appropriate time. Thanks a lot. Fahd 070217 [inserted some missing letters here and there for clarity - arctic]
