  1. The only official Mandriva CD's available are the ONE CD's and the dual-arch and so I'm puzzled as to what CD you were using. Jim
  2. You cannot use the ONE iso as an installation source in this way. You need an iso with a full installer - either the Free DVD or the dual-arch CD. http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Docs/Installing_Mandriva_Linux#Installation_from_hard_disk Jim P.S. It would probably be better to download the released version rather than an RC. They are available on all the mirrors, for example: ftp://ftp.free.fr/pub/Distributions_Linux/MandrivaLinux/official/iso/2009.1/
  3. I think that to build a kernel module he will need a kernel-*-devel package not the kernel-source package. http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Releases/Mandriva/2008.0/Notes#Source_and_headers Jim
  4. No doubt that is why the only Mandriva rpm for Firefox 3.5 is still in cooker's testing repo. When the dev's put a package in cooker's testing repo's it's like a big red flag that says "we think there may be problems with this package" (more so than with other cooker packages, all of which are "testing" packages to some extent). The problematic perl version is also in cooker's testing repo. Anyone running cooker should be subscribed to the cooker ML. Warnings about this sort of problem are usually posted there, before the packages are uploaded. Jim
  5. That's strange. I've just downloaded it, using the link in my earlier post. :) The mirror may have been in the process of sync'ing when you tried. boot.iso was updated today. Jim
  6. 2010 repo's don't exist yet. You need to select cooker. This will give you the latest cooker, which will include packages updated since the Alpha2 iso's were created. Jim
  7. This page may be of help in using the boot.iso: http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Docs/Installing_Mandriva_Linux#Installation_from_a_local_mirror.2C_hard_disk.2C_local_network.2C_or_the_Internet Jim
  8. On any mirror - as I should have written, instead of "in the repo's", for example: ftp://ftp.proxad.net/pub/Distributions_Linux/MandrivaLinux/devel/cooker/i586/install/images/boot.iso Jim
  9. It provides options to install over a network (from a local or remote mirror) or from an iso file or "mirror" on a local hard dive. It's available on the repo's or the installation disks (other than the live CD's) in /i586(or x86-64)/install/images. Jim
  10. Open a console/terminal and become root by entering su and then, when asked, the root password. Then enter: urpmi drakconf rpmdrake Jim
  11. I edited my post - I think that the package that is needed for those pages is coreutils-doc. There may be some pages that are not packaged at all for 2009.1 (such as su). https://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=52110 Jim
  12. KDE is being updated to 4.2.4 in both 2009.0 and 2009.1 The update for 2009.0 has already been released. http://www.mandriva.com/en/security/adviso...e=MDVA-2009:118 The one for 2009.1 will follow shortly. https://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=51792 Jim
  13. Mandriva's end user release is (and has been for years) a collaborative project between Mandriva (the company) and volunteer contributors. Adam Williamson was not paid to triage bugs. One of his many duties was to lead the triage team, which was and is comprised mainly of volunteers. Pacho is now leading that team. As with any team, people come and go. At the present time the team is in need of some more volunteers in order to spread the work load and to speed up the process of bug triaging. I'm surprised at some of the comments that seem to have been provoked by Pacho's invitation. Most FOSS projects issue similar invitations. Jim
  14. Back to Mandrake 7.2 available here: ftp://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr/pub/...drivaLinux/old/ and even older versions (but may not be complete) here: ftp://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr/pub/...iva-prehistory/ Jim
  15. To get that option in KDE4's systemsettings you'll need to install gtk-qt-engine. I don't think it's installed by default. Jim
  16. About the "restricted" problem. It should now be fixed: http://lists.mandriva.com/cooker/2009-04/msg01237.php Jim
  17. Yes. The installation program will load from the iso and the installation will proceed in exactly the same way as if you had booted from the DVD, but a lot faster. :) Jim
  18. You can use the DVD iso file as an installation source. Boot using the boot.iso (CD), select hard drive install and point the installer to the location of the iso. Be sure to put the iso on a partition that will not be formatted during the installation. Jim
  19. http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/2009.1_Notes#U...evious_releases Jim
  20. Realcrypt has been dropped entirely from Mandriva. It was decided that the truecrypt licence prohibited re-distribution, even in the modified form used by Mandriva. Jim
  21. rpm will search the database of installed rpm's. For example, # rpm -qa | grep kernel will list all installed packages whose names include the string "kernel". See man rpm for more details. Jim
  22. You presumably installed from the demo disk (Mandriva ONE) for an old release. http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/2008.1_Errata#...to_880MB_of_RAM Jim
  23. What aspect of Mandriva does not meet your specifications? http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Docs/Choosing_the_right_edition Jim
