  1. So I tried using kppp but all I got was a modem busy reply
  2. 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. So that did it. How do I find out what driver I need? It seemed that the one I had before was correct.
  4. So when I type "startx" it prints something on the screen, but it goes blank so fast I can't read it.
  5. 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. OK, so I installed the 32 bit version of Mandriva and I get the same result as above with the 64 bit version.
  7. 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. 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. 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. 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. What is I am using 64 bit?
  12. [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. 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. 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. 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.
  16. Aloha tux99 I am looking at a HP G60-230US 16" Widescreen Notebook Computer With Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core Processor T4200 http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/8176...creen-Notebook/ with: video graphics Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M with up to 1309MB shared memory kili
  17. Aloha I am looking at buying a new laptop and I was wondering how well Mandriva functions with the dual-core processors? kili [moved from Installing Mandriva by spinynorman]
  18. How do I view the fstab from a shell?
  19. Aloha Ian So the response I got was: "The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock: e2fsck -b 8193 <device>" I tried it with both sda5 and hda6. I'm not sure what ext2 and ext3 are, so I don't know what it should be.
  20. So I ran it on sda5 and hda6 and got the same response.
  21. So I downloaded a test program for my harddrive, it said it was OK, I testing my ram right now. When it is done I will try "e2fsck -b 8193 /dev/hda6"
  22. Is there anything I can do in the shell it gives me?
  23. Aloha Everyone I am running mandriva 2008 on my laptop, and yesterday if refused to boot. It has been acting weird lately. I have been having trouble changing permissions on files, and putting music onto my ipod. Yesterday it gave me this while trying to boot: fsck.ext3: no such file or directory while trying to open /dev/sda5 /dev/sda5: The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If device is valid and it really contains ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock: e2fsck -b 8193 <device> /dev/hda6: clean, 116703/10682368 files, 20717953/21352385 [failed] *** An error occured during the file system check. *** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot *** when you leave the shell Give root password for maintenance (or type Control-D to continue): Anybody know what I should do now?
