  1. Thanks! It seems they were two different problems. My old link for Mandriva Club must of been redirecting to the main site until recently (makes sense).


    As for the mirrors, they are still "zapped". I'm having the same problem as described in the link you provided. Hopefully this will be rectified soon.

  2. Hi,


    To put things simply, I'm not a big fan KDE 4.1.


    I've noticed that although there isn't an option during installation to choose between the two, and that initially KDE 4 is the only version available, after installing certain applications, KDE 3.5 suddenly becomes available. It works, but displays odd behaviour because of the co-existence of KDE 4 components.


    Is there a way to install Mandriva 2009.0 with just KDE 3.5, and no KDE4 components?




  3. Thanks, but I already went through the compiling route, with basically the same results. My problem is that the packaged rpms don't seem to put the modules in the correct location (but they do exist).


    For example, if I try to load the modules manually, this is what happens:


    [root@localhost ~]# modprobe tveeprom

    FATAL: Module tveeprom not found.


    The point is that the rpm packages shouldn't be placing modules where they can't be found. Isn't this a configuration issue with the packages?

  4. Hi,


    I have installed the following rpm pacakges for my WinTV PVR150 personal video recorder:






    - All required modules are present in /lib/modules/2.6.12-22mdk/kernel/drivers/media/video.

    - The firmware is present in /lib/modules.


    However, the dmesg file indicates that modules tveeprom, tuner, and msp3400 cannot be found, even though they are present as indicated above.


    So far as I can tell, this is the only thing keeping the card from working.


    Is anyone else having this problem? I have a standard 2006.0 setup with everything installed through Mandriva rpms.


    The dmesg output is as follows:
