    Updating Python

    I wonder how safe it is to update my python version to a more current version, and I also want to know how to do it without breaking my whole distro. Is ther a way I can get updates and backported packages for Python in a safe way? Regards.
  2. I discover I needed the devel packages for libjack0
  3. I have an issue of failed dependencies but seems is more of an issue with the path, I am not sure I remember how to modify the prefix but I guet the following issues: checking for LIBJACK... no configure: error: Package requirements (jack >= 0.98.0) were not met: No package 'jack' found Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix. Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBJACK_CFLAGS and LIBJACK_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details. I have confirmed the existence of libjack locate libjack /usr/lib/libjack.so.0 /usr/lib/libjack.so.0.1.0 /usr/lib/libjackserver.so.0 /usr/lib/libjackserver.so.0.1.0 I tried going through the pkg-config man pages, but seemed a bit odd about setting the libjack.

  4. There was a systemd issue on the updates that was fixed the nextt day but somehow you fell in the crack of that day gap. You need to get the latest systemd from the update source.
  5. VLC and ffmpeg have transcoding features. Usually you dont generate the FLV but the site gets th video and convert it into an flv. For more editing features you need a video editor like openshot or kdenlive.
  6. Seems this was a known issue due to systemd screw up http://forum.mandriva.com/en/viewtopic.php?f=86&t=137377&start=25 Update: http://www.mandriva.com/support/security/advisories/?dis=2011&name=MDVSA-2012:030 Regression: http://www.mandriva.com/support/security/advisories/?dis=2011&name=MDVA-2012:030
  7. I had issues after rebooting my mandriva system (I almost never reboot). It started complaining that the udev rules were deprecated. Specifically the 49-hso-udev.rules it complained that the new version of udev didnt recognized the SYSFS parameters. The file says something like this: # send rezero command via ozerocdoff, which uses usblib for all known ZCOPTION devices, supported by bundled driver SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0af0", SYSFS{idProduct}=="6711", SYSFS{bDeviceClass}=="00", RUN+="/usr/sbin/ozerocdoff -wi 0x%s{idProduct}" SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0af0", SYSFS{idProduct}=="6731", SYSFS{bDeviceClass}=="00", RUN+="/usr/sbin/ozerocdoff -wi 0x%s{idProduct}" SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0af0", SYSFS{idProduct}=="6751", SYSFS{bDeviceClass}=="00", RUN+="/usr/sbin/ozerocdoff -wi 0x%s{idProduct}" # add device node links to all possible device SUBSYSTEM=="tty", SYSFS{hsotype}=="Control", SYMLINK+="wctrl0" SUBSYSTEM=="tty", SYSFS{hsotype}=="Application", SYMLINK+="wapp0" SUBSYSTEM=="tty", SYSFS{hsotype}=="Application", SYMLINK+="wappa0" SUBSYSTEM=="tty", SYSFS{hsotype}=="Application2",SYMLINK+="wappb0" SUBSYSTEM=="tty", SYSFS{hsotype}=="Diagnostic", SYMLINK+="wdiag0" SUBSYSTEM=="tty", SYSFS{hsotype}=="Diagnostic", SYMLINK+="wdiaga0" SUBSYSTEM=="tty", SYSFS{hsotype}=="Diagnostic2", SYMLINK+="wdiagb0" SUBSYSTEM=="tty", SYSFS{hsotype}=="Modem", SYMLINK+="wmodem0" SUBSYSTEM=="tty", SYSFS{hsotype}=="GPS", SYMLINK+="wgps0" SUBSYSTEM=="tty", SYSFS{hsotype}=="GPS_Control", SYMLINK+="wgpsc0" SUBSYSTEM=="tty", SYSFS{hsotype}=="PCSC", SYMLINK+="wpcsc0" # Note use here SYSFS instead of ATTR to be compatible to Xandros/EeePC As said before, the SYSFS should be replaced by ATTR but it wasnt thanks to hardware compatibility. Anyone know more about this bug?
  8. I have seen other users complaining and it seems to be an issue of MIB and plf but in the end I am still stuck without being able to satisfy the package. I have multiple versions of mplayer and also only a 115 version of libx264, however the installation of plf mplayer asks me for a 110 version that is only available on the x86-64 repo. Please check the following link: ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/plf.zarb.org/plf/mandriva/2011/free/release/binary/i586/ Anyone has been able to solve it? I check backports and other alternative repo and couldnt find much.
  9. Ah thanks for that, SOLVED!
  10. So the configuration on my system demands every locale from the apps from firefox, libreoffice, and other applications. Is there a way to uninstall the package or reconfigure the system so it only asks for specific locales? Regards.
  11. Hi I got my netbook root partition about to be full and I want to know how can I bootstrap it. I found out with filelight that I get a lot of size from the locales used. I dont have much need for these so I want to know how can I get rid of the locales cleanly. I am including snapshots from my disk. I am including shots of /usr/share/ and /usr/share/locale from my disk. Please advice how can I get rid of it, and which packages to remove.
  12. EXE are windows only file format for Windows only, it wont run on linux, mac, blackberry, ios, or any other non-windows system. Linux and Mandriva uses RPM and or other formats similar to .bin or .sh not .exe. That said you can use a winodows emulator like Wine, and or install windows in a Virtualbox virtual machine. Something like this:
  13. I experienced something similar, my guess is that Plasma is crashing. .xsession-error files usually give you the issues. I will recomend to install a second window manager to fall back like urpmi task-lxde or icewm. I recomend using tail -f .xsession-error on a console before going Ctrl-Alt-F8
  14. Wow from a Mandriva Guru this seems like a weak reason to give up on it. I am able to connect, just make it painful from time to time.
  15. I am having issues accessing the Console (TTY) once KDE starts. It seems the Cltr-Alt-F[1,2,3,4,5..] doesn't work once KDE kicks in. Ctrl-alt-f1,2,3 works as a desktop switcher and Ctrl-alt-f8 works as a dashboard as well as ctrl-alt-f12. Can someone help me how to change to TTY on Mandriva, I have asked the KDE forums and at least Fedora and Ubuntu works as expected.
  16. I am currently having issues with my networking because networkmanager is by default activated as the main manager to handle connectivity. I am able to disable it through mcc but each time I tried again is re-activated. How can I edit the default option for Network manager. I attached a screenshot of the option I want disabled by default.
  17. I tried to experience the KDE version of semantik desktop by tagging and commenting my images just to find out is pretty hard to get something going with gwenview and/or Dolphin. The apps take forever when you try to deal with the metainformation like comments, ratings, or tags. Nepomuk seems to be running and even display the stats of what its doing. However nothing on the other side.
  18. I wanted to use the TimeFrame app just to find that it takes forever to load and then it goes blank. Nepomuk is running alright and I even test some files specifically to be shown. However the timeframe is always empty. I wonder if this is some issues of the installation or I miss a package. Anyone else using this?
  19. I am upgrading from 2010.0. I though ISO were supposed to be hybrid. Which means doing a dd will make the usb bootable. I tried some hdparm to test speed and is pretty good around 417 mbps and my usb is a USB 2.0. I will try the USB option.
  20. Did an hdparm trying to the get speed of the USB data transfer and got the following: /dev/sdb: Timing cached reads: 870 MB in 2.00 seconds = 435.14 MB/sec Timing buffered disk reads: 54 MB in 3.08 seconds = 17.55 MB/sec Unfortunately I think this is not good enough since it only test the very first seconds which usually is a very high rate but drops overtime. Wonder if I can specify over a longer period of time.
  21. Trying to get KDE 4.7.2 started

  22. I am having a big issue when I tried to load the Mandriva 2011 ISO as well as the liveUSB on my Laptop. First I download the 1.7GB Mandriva.2011.586.iso file, and try to load into a brand new Kingston 2GB USB. I did a dd if=file.iso of=/dev/sdx bs=8M After that it started loading, and took almost all night since I went to bed and found it was done by the next morning. So I load it to the Laptop, and nothing. It just skip the USB and went straight to the HD. So it seems isolinux or something wasnt booting. Tonight I tried it again this time through the Mandriva_seed.sh file, which loaded the image and took a total of 5.25hrs (Too much) and finally got it to get recognized by the Laptop However it take ages to actually do something. I just see an ISOLinux ... legend and that's it. The USB seems to be working since a green light appear but there is no more vmlinuz or other process being displayed in the screen. I would appreciate to get some insight into what's going on. My laptop is not that old, so the transfer rate should be okay. I have transfer large files with a good transfer rate. (1GB movies and such). USB is: Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0930:6544 Toshiba Corp. Kingston DataTraveler 2.0 Stick (2GB)
  23. I got a Dell Inspiron 17R I wonder if this has to do with the specs you are looking for.
  24. I have tried with the 32bit and the 64bit version of mandriva and I get issues installing Mandriva on this laptop. Anyone has any onsight on this hardware? Most of the installation is fine but most after trying to boot I get a black screen. Inspiron 17R New 2010 Intel® Core™ i5-450M 2.4Gh (Turbo boost up to 2.66Ghz, 4 Threads, 3M Cache) 17.3" HD+ (1600 x 900) WLED Display with TrueLife™ 4GB2 Shared Dual Channel DDR3 Intel® HD Graphics HD Audio 2.0 Support SRS™ Premium Sound with Subwoofer
  25. I got a couple of USB devices that get recognized correctly but proc shows nothing about them. One is Bluetooth, the other is a USB microphone. The bluetooth returns the dmesg: usb 5-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3 usb 5-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice usb 5-1: New USB device found, idVendor=1131, idProduct=1001 usb 5-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0 usb 5-1: Product: ISSCBTA The USB microphone return this: usb 4-1: USB disconnect, address 3 usb 4-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4 usb 4-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice usb 4-1: New USB device found, idVendor=17a0, idProduct=0001 usb 4-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0 usb 4-1: Product: Samson C01U usb 4-1: Manufacturer: Samson Technologies lsusb is shows the device: Bus 001 Device 002: ID 059b:0272 Iomega Corp.
