      Mandriva Official Documentation

      Official documentation for extant versions of Mandriva can be found at doc.mandriva.com.   Documentation for the latest release may take some time to appear there. You can install all the manuals from the main repository if you have Mandriva installed - files are prefixed mandriva-doc.

      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

  1. Mandriva 2006

    If your having that many problems... I would go for a clean install. Things always seem to work out better each time you install :) I still use Mandrake 10.1 myself cause as they say... "If it ain't broke... don't fix it"
  2. linuxtoday.com

    Story #1 posted there: RadioShack Saves Millions of Dollars by Choosing Windows Over Linux Yeah... RadioShack... LOL and Seems their whole decision was based on having to retrain their "burger flipping" staff and they never really had answered their own questions as to what the real cost of this switch was. Yeah... right. Pure 100% FUD.
  3. Linux Partitions

    Welcome to MUB, "SD" partitions are for "Special Devices" such as External Harddrives and CF cards. Your "normal" partitions are usually on "HDA" or the main harddrive. Tho I prefer Arctic's method personnally, you can also enter the following via a terminal window to list your harddrive's partitions and it will give you some usefull info: df sda1 and sda6 should be on the same drive... where sdb will be another drive. You have any USB drives, card readers, zip drives, etc. installed on this system?
  4. Convert pdf to text

    You may be able to use the gimp too. I haven't tried yet, but there is a plugin to read and write pdf files. http://registry.gimp.org/plugin?id=195
  5. Update firefox1.02 no updates?

    I don't think any RPM's are available for this yet and thus it will not update via URPMI... checkout this thread: https://mandrivausers.org/index.php?showtopic=29585
  6. ZDNet Mandriva review

    Maybe we should post our comments there and attempt to enlighten this writer ? http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/software/os/0,3...39237416,00.htm
  7. phpmyadmin not working since I installed 2006

    ahhhh..... I bet that is going to help us here ;)
  8. phpmyadmin not working since I installed 2006

    The only other thing I see different between our config files is line 82. Mine looks like this: $cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie'; Have we verified MySQL is running ? In a terminal... su to root and type in this: service mysql status If so, it will say, "mysqld (pid #) is running..." Otherwise, I am running out of ideas.
  9. phpmyadmin not working since I installed 2006

    Try this: In your config.inc.php file change line 36 to this (assuming your path/ setup is the same)" $cfg['PmaAbsoluteUri'] = ''; and then try logging in with user root and a blank password field.
  10. phpmyadmin not working since I installed 2006

    you can check what password it is expecting in the file config.inc.php that can be found at: file:/var/www/html/admin/phpMyAdmin/ look around line 84 and yes... root is the default username.
  11. phpmyadmin not working since I installed 2006

    good idea aioshin :) [scoopy@localhost scoopy]$ rpm -qa | grep php apache2-mod_php-2.0.50_4.3.8-2mdk php-mysql-4.3.8-1mdk php-xml-4.3.8-1mdk libphp_common432-4.3.8-3.3.101mdk phpMyAdmin-2.6.0-1mdk php-ini-4.3.8-1mdk
  12. Web Content management

    It all really depends on what you want from this site. There are many CMS apps to choose from and http://www.opensourcecms.com/ is a good place to find "the right tool for the job." I have been preferring either Drupal or even WordPress for professional business type of sites. Yes... Wordpress is designed for bloggers... but it is easy to customize and has worked well for these types of sites also.
  13. Popfile [solved]

    Is port 8080 open ? Depending on your network setup there... You may need to forward this port to this computer running popfile ?
  14. phpmyadmin not working since I installed 2006

    Maybe some more info would be of use to help troubleshoot what has gone wrong? /* URL from top of head */ Do you get anything by going to ? such as the login box ? or any error message ? Do you get the apache test page at ? I am not familiar with anything Mandriva 2006 may have done... as I am still using Mandrake 10.1 ;)
  15. Trouble burning iso images [solved]

    I think this should be easily fixed by editing your fstab file (in /etc). Your drive's mount points have probably changed when adding that other drive and needs to be updated in this file. If you post the contents of this file... I am sure someone will be able to fix this problem. PS: I just recently tossed about 6 CD burners myself. They were all different brands and seem to be the first thing to go... usually right after the warrenty expires ;) PSS: Hello AussieJohn ;)
