  1. Try "rootnoverify" instead of "root" in the windows stanza of menu.lst. No guarantee that this will make any difference. It's been a long time since I dual-booted with windows. Jim
  2. Media Manager /Options/Global Options If you want to report a bug or ask for an enhancement: https://qa.mandriva.com/index.cgi Bugzilla reports and comments are entirely in English Jim
  3. Try drak3d and choose "No 3d" Jim
  4. You should have /main, /contrib, and /non-free as well as the corresponding /updates repos. It's safest not to use /testing or /backports. (I would remove them entirely, and not just disable them. There was a bug in mandriva-update which caused them to be used sometimes, even if they were disabled.) Have you run mandriva-update? It should update your kernel to -18. If I understand correctly, an ML350 is a desktop machine, not a laptop and so -desktop would be the right kernel flavour. Jim
  5. Run: kdesu konqueror You may find the following links useful in sorting out the problems you have with urpmi. (I don't think you have set up the repo's properly.): http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Docs/Basic_tas...moving_software http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Releases/Mandr...#Kernel_changes Jim
  6. First, update to the latest kernel (-16 has a major security vulnerability) and then install kernel-desktop-devel-latest. Jim
  7. In its configuration dialogue, under Indexing, un-check Start indexing automatically. Jim
  8. What else was uninstalled when you "removed" beagle? It's always wise to check the list. Install task-kde. It may well put beagle back, but you can turn beagle off without un-installing it. That's usually the safer option with unwanted applications. Jim
  9. Perhaps you need to add your user to smbpasswd. IIRC the command is: This assumes that you use the same username on your windows boxes. Jim edit: Sorry, I've just realized that is for the samba server, not the client. For the client use kcontrol/Internet & Network/Local Network Browsing/Windows Shares. Jim
  10. I haven't used samba for a long time, but I think konqueror uses kwallet to store passwords. Jim
  11. I've removed my comment. On first reading, I misinterpreted your post. (I don't see an option to delete a message.) Jim
  12. I don't use Math Type, but the easiest way I've found to get fonts "working right" under wine is to install the msfonts. The best way, if you have access to a windows system is to use drakfont, or there are third party rpm's available (which provide some of the msfonts). Search here for msfonts or mscorefonts: http://rpm.pbone.net/ Jim
  13. I experienced this on cooker a couple of weeks ago, but it was very quickly fixed. You may want to check bugzilla to see if anyone else is experiencing this now. I don't recall seeing any recent reports. Jim
  14. Yes. http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Docs/Installin...llation_methods Jim
  15. As with smart, the gui for bt is in a separate package. Searching in rpmdrake is generally easier than using urpmi, unless you know exactly what you want to install. Jim
  16. Add the /i586/media/restricted directory on the DVD as an additional media source for rpmdrake. Jim
  17. A command line guide is still available: http://club.mandriva.com/xwiki/bin/view/KB...01Documentation Although it's for 10.1, I would think almost all of it will still be relevant. Jim
  18. What I do when using the PUEL version: 1. Uninstall ALL other vbox and virtualbox rpms (Enter vbox|virtualbox in the search box in the Software Manager) 2. Make sure kernel-desktop-devel-latest is installed (or kernel-laptop-devel-latest if using the laptop kernel ). (The full kernel source may be OK, but is not necessary) 3. Install the PUEL rpm. 4. Add my user to the vboxusers group 5. After booting into a new kernel, re-run the setup script. (On the first attempt to launch a vm after booting into a new kernel, a pop-up displays the exact command that must be run.) This works perfectly for me every time. Jim
  19. From the description of kernel-server- "......This kernel is compiled for server use, single or multiple i686 processor(s)/core(s) and up to 64GB RAM ....." Jim
  20. I'm not 100% sure that this will work, but try Settings and un-check "Save view changes per folder" and then View/View mode/Detail list view. You will then need to save this as the view profile. Jim
  21. I don't know a way to add such an entry there, but you can easily add one to the main toolbar. Right-click on the main toolbar, select configure and in the main toolbar "available actions" on the left, you'll find "New tab". Add it anywhere in the toolbar that you want it. Jim
  22. rpmdrake in 2007.1 had a bug that caused it to always use the last repo defined in urpmi.cfg as the source for installed packages. In 2008.0 this has been "fixed" by simply not reporting any source for installed packages. Jim
  23. Add the following option to /etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg { post-clean :0 } This will negate the default post-clean option See man urpmi.cfg. Jim
  24. Do you have the ntfs-3g package installed? Jim
  25. Install wine, make sure the wine process is running, click on the setup.exe or install.exe. If you're lucky it will install and run. If you have problems, check out the AppDB at WineHQ for possible hints and tips. It looks as though this is a very new application and so there is likely to be very little experience of trying to run it under wine. Jim
