    Taking over the Linux desktop... You always needs some kind of 'server' (installed in your Linux) You always need some kind of 'client': installed in any Linux or Windows from where you want to control your desktop. Servers for Linux: VNC (see above), NX (see above) or ... rdp-server like Thinstuff (LX) (rdp is the protocol for Windows, is not native for Linux). Clients exist for all platforms. Personally I got the best results with NX.
  2. I guess I can follow your suggestions theoretically. But, as I'm by no means a network guru, can you help me practically? When I do as you suggest, it says "there's no vif0" even when I create a configuration file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. Also: what parameters do I have to use (supposing I get the bridge working) when I start KVM?
  3. This is my situation: MDV 2009, IP adres on eth0 for my private network. I configured a second eth0:0 for my professional network. I installed KVM, WinXP as guest. Everything is working fine, but I cannot configure the virtual machine so that is member of my private network. With VMware, there is no problem as I indicate it is a bridged network. I found several instructions on the web, but none of them is working. Is there someone out there, who can help me?
  4. It worked! But I have to use the 64bit version (is this stupid?) and add the line 'noapic nolapic acpi=off'. I'm writing this message on MDV 2007.1. Thanks for the help.
  5. 1. In the BIOS, I can't find how to disable the second core. 2. I added the noapic, nolapic and acpi=off to the installation line. Now the installation stops with the message: "probing PCI hardware". Still no succes.
  6. Sorry for the delay... I upgraded the BIOS to version 1.10 Rev. A. Still no luck though. Installation hangs with the same message and there is no option to disable plug and play settings. So: I still can't install MDV 2007.1 Any suggestions?
  7. It's a HP minitower pc. It uses a specific HP BIOS. Version= 786E1 v.0105. Maybe it's relevant to mention the system is based on Intel's VPro technology??? Nowhere in the menu's I can find something near PnP OS. In the HP supportpages I can find that some BIOS have a 'I/O APIC mode' which 'for some OS (e.g. Unix) this has to be disabled' but unfortunately mine hasn't. So I can't try this. As I mentioned before, strangely enough OpenSUSE 10.2 installs without problems: what's different that MDV has a problem installing??
  8. I checked this already because I read about that in another post in this forum, but I seem unable to find a topic like that in BIOS. Do you have any idea where to look?
  9. Hi, I tried to do as you suggest, as far as I understand what you mean. Here's what I did: - I insert DVD MDV 2007.1. -reboot -a bootloader comes up (is this the GRUB you mean?) with the suggestions to start from harddisk, install Mandriva, rescue the system and do a memory test. - I choose 'Install Mandriva' -I choose F3 - there is a line with options but there's no noapic, nolapic or acpi=off option, only splashscreen=silent (and a few others) - When I choose F6, there are several options, I tried them all, but nothing works... So, can you explain when exactly to hit the e-key (I did several times during the bootloader startup, but nothing happens)? And then from where to remove the noapic, nolapic and acpi=off options? Tx Oh Yes, I can't find nothing related in the Mandriva errata list.
  10. InstallingMandriva Mandriva 2007.1 free hangs on a black screen when I use graphical mode. In text mode it stops with the message 'ACPI: assume root bridge [\_SB_PCI0] bus is 0' or with 'Probing PCI hardware' with options 'acpi=off' or acpi='ht'. I use the 32-bit version, checksums are OK (downloading en burning). Indeed: the 2007.0 CDrom has the same problem. A kernel issu? Hardware: Hp Compaq dc 7700p Intel Core 2 CPU 6300 @1,86 Hz. Intel Q965/Q963 Express chipset family. OpenSuse 10.2 installs without problems...
