      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

  1. tethering

    So I tried using kppp but all I got was a modem busy reply
  2. tethering

    Aloha all I just go a new droid x and I am trying to figure out how to connect to the internet through the usb tethering available with the droidx. Any ideas? Kili
  3. toshiba tecra

    So that did it. How do I find out what driver I need? It seemed that the one I had before was correct.
  4. toshiba tecra

    So when I type "startx" it prints something on the screen, but it goes blank so fast I can't read it.
  5. toshiba tecra

    Aloha Somebody gave me a Toshiba Tecra m2v-s330, 1.5 GHz http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/product/pdf_files/detailed_specs/tecra_M2V.pdf I tried installing spring 2009, and it seemed to go fine, but when I try to reboot, I get the first splash screen with the penguin and status bar, then it goes to verbose and then I just get "_" and it stops. It never even get to the login. Any ideas? kili OK, so I tied to boot in safe mode and got the command line screen. I tried to open nautilus and it said it couldn't display it, so I tried to run display and it said the x sever wasn't working.
  6. no wireless

    OK, so I installed the 32 bit version of Mandriva and I get the same result as above with the 64 bit version.
  7. no wireless

    I downloaded the Driver_XP_5719_033 file, which is 64 bit XP. The problem is that it doesn't seem like the operating system even recognizes that there is a wireless card.
  8. no wireless

    I'm sorry, I thought I did answer you. I am using 64 bit, and I found an xp 64 bit driver and I posted the results above, from when I tried to us the ndiswrapper.
  9. no wireless

    So it seems like it doesn't even recognize that there is a wireless device. When ever I try to use ndiswrapper it says that there is a missing component, and when I use the device manager it doesn't show a wireless device. It just shows "device 8192" under the heading ethernet card Any ideas on what to do next? kili
  10. no wireless

    So I downloaded a driver from here:http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=6&PFid=6&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false When I tried to install it I got this reply: "No device supporting net rtlx ndiswrapper driver is present" I clicked OK and this came up next: "Some components (Windows Driver) are required but not available for this ndiswrapper hardware. The required files can also be installed from this URL. http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/mediawiki/index.php/List" I checked this out and there was nothing to download for my card just this:http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ndiswrapper/index.php?title=Realtek_RTL8180 If I am doing something wrong please let me know.
  11. no wireless

    What is I am using 64 bit?
  12. no wireless

    [kili@localhost ~]$ lspcidrake -v | egrep -i 'network|wireless'r8169 : Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.|RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller [NETWORK_ETHERNET] (vendor:10ec device:8136 subv:1179 subd:ff1e) unknown : Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.|Device 8192 [NETWORK_OTHER] (vendor:10ec device:8192 subv:10ec subd:8181) I have no idea what any of this means
  13. new laptop

    Aloha Everyone I just bought a new toshiba A505d and I am having problems with the sound. First it isn't very loud, and then it cuts out after a few minutes. I installed aumix and it is turned to full, no difference. any ideas? kili [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  14. no wireless

    Aloha Everyone I just installed 2009.1 on my new Toshiba Satelite: http://laptops.toshiba.com/laptops/satellite/A500/A505D-S6968 So I'm not sure if I found the correct driver and if it is than I can't seem to get it to work. When I look at the hardware, it doesn't even show m wireless card. I know it is there, because I used it before I installed Mandrake. [moved from Networking by Greg2]
  15. OpenOffice

    How in the hell do I turn off the autocomplete in OpenOffice? I won't be paying attention and it will complete a word in some bizarre way and I won't notice. I have spent about 2 hours going through all of the menus and the help is as useful as a second ass-hole.
