  3. OK thanks Greg2. Will not be able to get back until Monday. Will post when done. Thx for the help. Nooob
  4. More info: AFIK did not copy CD/DVD to disk, just ran the update from "New Updates Are Available" pop up. It suggested some install files be copied to URPMI folder. / Size: 7.8GB Used: 7.1 GB Open: 382m Use: 95% /home Size: 85GB Used: 2.4GB Open: 83GB Use: 3% /media/hd Size: 136GB Used: 97GB Open: 39GB Use: 72% Yes / is full. Not sure how it got that way. I really don't have much data on the machine. Since I am as my username suggests, I'm a little lost on the solution. sda5 = / 7.7GB sda7 = /home 85GB Resize sda7 smaller and resize sda5 larger from MCC Manage Disk Partitions, after having move the folders under /home to network storage I have available. ? Thanks.
  5. Good morning... afternoon... evening...! I have the following partitions: /home 85GB / 7.8GB swap 3.8 GB /media/hd 135 GB I ran the upgrade for 2010.1 and IIRC the install failed due to not enough space in /usr/bin I took the default URPMI folder to save the install files. New update packages now also fail. Apparently not enough space on /. Where did I go wrong, and how can I fix it.................? As always, thanks for the help. Noooob
  6. Greetings, After running the updates last night, I now have 5 choices of OS when previously had only the first 3. 1). Mandriva 2009 2). Mandriva Safe Mode 3). Windows 4). Linux with kernel 2.6.27-desktop586rc8-2mnb 5). desktop586 I don't understand why #4 and #5 were added, and what to do with them? Thanks again!
  7. Installed and running now. LOVE it!
  8. I ran the command line update and wrecked it........
  9. Currently I am (well..... ummmm.....I was....) dual booting XP Pro and 2008.1 I ran the command line upgrade for 2009 and have wrecked 2008.1 Data was backed up prior, so no big deal really. I have a 2009 Live CD and prefer to reinstall. Questions: Should I remove the existing Linux partitions from XP Disk Manager before installing 2009, or leave them alone? Will Grub update accordingly during reinstall? Thanks again!

    Radeon X1050

    Good morning, or afternoon or ............... I have upgraded my video board to a VisionTek X1050, to add some performance to Vista. I am dual booting Vista and MDV 2008. Old card was an Nvidia chipset. First time around got a black screen in MDV. Ran XFdrake from safe mode and was able to get a low resolution screen with no 3D support. fglrx will not load. Found this and installed it: http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/mandriva/2008...8.0.x86_64.html Ran XFdrake again and I chose the "Radeon 9500 to X1050" Again was unable to load fglrx, and could only support low res, no 3D. And to top it off, it took out my USB wireless adapter. I reconfigured it, and it still will not connect. Suggestions? Thanks! Nooob
  13. Had some time to do more testing... I had one stick of mismatched memory, believed to be PC133 but was PC100. Booted with noapic, nolapic and acpi=off. For some reason it did not like the PCI video card, and would hang on boot. Found a spare AGP card, good to go! Nooob
