  1. Problem solved by installing dkms-ndiswrapper so it builds modules with every different kernel Thanks for all the advice.
  2. [root@localhost ~]# uname -r I got this version of from the main-testing repo in order to get my DVD/CD drive to work per the 2011 wiki. How do I know get the version of ndiswrapper that correctly matches?
  3. I had used easyurpmi to add the media. So I thought may be of I remove all media and add it again that might help. But this looks like it was a mistake. Removal was successful but I did get this error when adding the media. Unable to add medium, errors reported: ...retrieving failed: aria2 failed: exited with 2 problem reading synthesis file of medium "Non-free Testing (Official2011.0-19)" Although it does look like the media was added AND I still get this error: Sorry, the following package cannot be selected: - ndiswrapper-kernel-desktop586-latest-1.56-1.20101017.3mdv2011.0.i586 (due to unsatisfied ndiswrapper-kernel-2.6.36-desktop586-0.rc8.1.1mnb[== 1.56-3mdv2011.0]) OR Sorry, the following package cannot be selected: - ndiswrapper-kernel-desktop-latest-1.56-1.20101017.3mdv2011.0.i586 (due to unsatisfied ndiswrapper-kernel-2.6.36-desktop-0.rc8.1.1mnb[== 1.56-3mdv2011.0])
  4. Hello, I just upgraded to Mandriva 2011. I have a PC with a NetGear Wireless PCI card and had no trouble using this card with 2010. When I attempt to add a wireless interface by using a windows driver with ndiswrapper my computer freezes. I do get a pop-up window stating searching for required software and drivers before the PC freezes. Then I have to restart the PC to recover. I check what software is installed. I have the Ndiswrapper binary loader utility. I do not have a ndiswrapper-kernel. If I select ndiswrapper-kernel-desktop-latest I get the following error: Sorry, the following package cannot be selected: - ndiswrapper-kernel-desktop-latest-1.56-1.20101017.3mdv2011.0.i586 (due to unsatisfied ndiswrapper-kernel-2.6.36-desktop-0.rc8.1.1mnb[== 1.56-3mdv2011.0]) Please Advise. Thank You.
  5. Hi, I don't see 2011 as an option in Easy URPMI's version pulldown menu. 2011 is official now right? I have always added media via Easy URPMI. ??
  6. I finally got it to work by giving up on WPA2 and just using WPA. For whatever reason Mandriva was the only network device I have that won't work with the router using WPA2.
  7. The problem seems to have been resolved. I just completed a very busy few months at work and had been using my work laptop exclusively. Upon returning the work this issue with my PC I found there were 472 updates for the system. After all the updates were installed the MCC is working normally. Thanks for all the help.
  8. I was able to start it from the command line. I don't know whether or not this is normal but here are the results: [root@localhost jose]# drakconf [root@localhost jose]# "/usr/sbin/drakbackup" is not executable [backups] at /usr/sbin/drakconf.real line 821. "/usr/sbin/drakvirt" is not executable [Virtualization] at /usr/sbin/drakconf.real line 821. "/usr/sbin/msecgui" is not executable [security Level] at /usr/sbin/drakconf.real line 821. "/usr/sbin/tomoyo-gui" is not executable [Tomoyo Policy] at /usr/sbin/drakconf.real line 821.
  9. Hello, Suddenly my Mandriva Control Center will not start. Upon launch I get the splash screen that says: But after that nothing ever happens. Otherwise computer seems to be working normally. I am running KDE One 2010.2 32 bit. Recommendations? Thanks
  10. I tried clearing the connection and recreating it, didn't work. I tried cycling the power to the router, didn't work. Firewall is configured to no firewall. This is the system log Next steps?
  11. Hello, I have a new router. I have been able to connect all my wireless devices including Win7 PCs, Wii, DSi's, wireless network printer with no trouble except my Mandriva 2010.2 KDE PC. From the graphical control panel I am not getting any useful feedback beyond a connection failed message. I am using WPA2-PSK which I have used in the past with no trouble. Any suggestions on trouble shooting would be greatly appreciated. Thank You,
  12. Somehow KDE got dropped during the upgrade. Installing task-kde4 and all the associated dependent rpms solved the problem. Thank you for the help. :) Jose
  13. Hi, I have had an unexpecting result attempting to upgrade from 2010 to 2010.1 (KDE versions) in this fashion: 1) removed 2010.0 media sources from MCC 2) added 2010.1 media sources via Easy URPMI 3) used the terminal command: urpmi --auto-update 4) restart The boot menu listed Mandriva 2010 Spring which was a great sign. However, it appears KDE did not fully upgrade. There no icons in the menu. There is no "Configure your Desktop" option anywhere. Right click on desktop does nothing. The task bar and menu look very minimalistic. Here is picture of the desktop: http://s36.photobucket.com/albums/e9/JKMenendez/?action=view&current=snapshot2.png Any suggestions? Thank You in advance, Jose
  14. Switching mirrors worked. Thank You. Now to upgrade ...
