      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

  1. startx command error after update.

    Good Morning. I have upgraded to Mandriva 2010 yesterday. After the update, when I boot Mandriva, the GUI login screen doesn't comeup. When I switch to command prompt and issue startx command, I get the following error- xauth: creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.16241 /etc/X11/X: symbol lookup error: /etc/X11/X: undefined symbol: pixman_disable_out_of_bounds_workaround giving up. xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): unable to connect to X server xinit: No such process (errorno 3): Server error. Request you to kindly help me with this. Thank you!!

  3. Wireless networks not detected [solved]

    Hi, I have read in one of the forums "http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-wireless-networking-41/error-error-for-wireless-request-set-mode-8b06-invalid-argument-roaming-506735/" that they got rid of this error by change from Mode=Auto to Mode=Managed I did the same thing in configure network option. It now doesn't say invalid argument now. It just displays this error message- Another wpa_supplicant instance is already running for device wlan0

  5. Wireless networks not detected [solved]

    Hi Ian, Thank you for the reply. I am not able to see any wireless networks in iwlist as well. It says network is down. Here is the output. [root@localhost rama]# iwlist wlan0 scan wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning : Network is down [root@localhost rama]# Did I miss anything in the installation?
  6. Wireless networks not detected [solved]

    Hello, I have installed mandriva 2009 yesterday. Everything works great - but the wireless networks. Windows XP detects two wireless networks as shown in the screenshot attached. But, Mandriva detects none. I don't think there is any problem with the installation or drivers but.. not very sure. Here are some of the outputs you might be interested to look at. [root@localhost rama]# ndiswrapper -l bcmwl5 : driver installed device (14E4:4311) present (alternate driver: ssb) [root@localhost rama]# iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wmaster0 no wireless extensions. wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=0 dBm Retry min limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr=2352 B Encryption key:off Power Management:off Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0 Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0 Thank you for your help, Thank you for your time :)

  9. Totem automatically starts at gnome startup

    Thanks! for your time. There is a "quit" option in "Movie" menu. Also, there is no totem icon on the panel bar when I "quit" Totem. But, it starts again when I reboot/re-login my GNOME session.
  10. Hi, Totem player starts up automatically every time I login to my GNOME session. I have checked the startup tab in gnome-control-center. Totem is not listed in that. I want to stop totem from starting itself automatically at startup. Kindly help me with this.
  11. /etc/resolv.conf file [solved]

    Wow!!! my internet is fast now.. I commented belkin and have and have disabled IPV6. Thanks soo much..
  12. /etc/resolv.conf file [solved]

    Hi, My internet connection is very slow in my Mandriva compared to the connection speed in Windows XP. Just did a google search for this problem. One of the forums said "Check your DNS servers in your /etc/resolv.conf file. If it shows your router as the nameserver this might be the issue. Change this entry to your ISP's DNS servers." My /etc/resolv.conf file says- search Belkin nameserver 192.168.2.1 nameserver 65.24.7.3 nameserver 65.24.7.6 I am pretty sure Belkin is the name of my router. What exactly should I change this to? What is " entry in my ISPs DNS server"? Thanks so much for all ur help!! [moved from Software by spinynorman]
