      Mandriva Official Documentation

      Official documentation for extant versions of Mandriva can be found at doc.mandriva.com.   Documentation for the latest release may take some time to appear there. You can install all the manuals from the main repository if you have Mandriva installed - files are prefixed mandriva-doc.

      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

  2. Can't access 150GB backup drive

    Hi Greg2, my backup drive is SATA, internal & file system is ext3. Thanks.
  3. Can't access 150GB backup drive

    I've just come from Sabayon Linux, where my backup drive was recognised without problems. Now after installing Spring, all I get when I try to access my music, emails, favourites etc is: error - konqueror org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-fixed auth_admin_keep_always <- (action, result) So all my 100+ GB is unavailable to me at the moment, any advice would be greatly appreciated! thanks.
  4. Speed Up Amarok With Large Music Collections

    I'm running Amarok 1.4.7 (on Mandriva 2008.0) & it shows XINE as the only choice, suppose 33GB isn't that big a music collection though :P
  5. Hi all, I've just come across this on tuxmachines.org, where the link shows you how to 'Speed Up Amarok With Large Music Collections' here: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/linux/speed...ic-collections/ I can find mysql-client, but can't find mysql-server anywhere, any idea where this package might be hiding :unsure: Thanks :D
  6. Backup your System!

    Hi all! I've just installed Mandriva 2008.0 & love every minute of it :-D I came from Sabayon Linux, where I used grsync there. Glad to say it works just as well here in MandrivaLand, so if I happen to hose my system (I'm a tweaker), I can restore back to where I left off!
  7. Bittorrent, can't find it!

    I installed Mandriva_free_2007 yesterday! I've installed Bittorrent, but can't find out how to launch it :huh: Any advice would be greatly appreciated :D Many thanks!
  8. Trying various distros! [solved]

    Last night I sync'd my portage tree from within Geroo (Sabayon's package manager), now the system crashed every 5 minutes! Over the weekend, I'll be installing Mandriva (as Sabayon's too painful for a newbie). Any advice as to what to do, would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, ashley194
  9. Trying various distros! [solved]

    Thanks for all the advice, I'm now not so nervous about trying another distro! As you rightly Say, I'll keep Sabayon Linux for 6 months or so. However, with my Mandriva free 2007 DVD almost finished, I might simply use it to see if all my hardware works etc... Again thanks for all the great advice, & for being kind to a n00b :D
  10. Hi all, I've used Windows for the past 10 years & am now upgrading to Linux. I installed Sabayon Linux 2 weeks ago & everything's going just fine. Here's the point, how would I be able to uninstall Sabayon, install Mandriva & still keep my XP installation? I know, tall order! Any advice would be extremely welcome. Thanks, ashley194 :unsure:
