  1. Did you try installing the updates ? Don't know if this was in any of the fixes, but there's a few drake packages (such as drakxtools) in the updates.
  2. The shortcut to mcc should be right next to that one above. It should read, "configure my computer."
  3. There's some bug with command that is configured with xmms. Go back and install the Mandrake RPM from the CD and then start xmms with terminal or konsole. xmms You should be able to play things normally from there. Then you could make your own desktop shortcut for this.
  4. Welcome... Sounds to me like (and I have to guess since I can't see what you see) either things really went bad during the install... or your looking at some other desktop than KDE (did you try a right click to see if that brings up a menu... or try the "windows" key). If you have a terminal or konsole window, try some of these commands: mcc (Mandrake Control Center) konqueror kate urpmi (was that a typo ?) If these work, we can get things back in order quite easily. Might help to describe what you see in front of you in more detail
  5. I still happen to have the Mandrake RPM I used with my Conexant winmodem filed away... don't know if it would be of any use now-a-days ??? (7.5 MB) hsflinmodem-
  6. Getting lm_sensors seems to get more difficult everytime I install it. gkrellm says "No sensors detected." Installed are: liblm_sensors3-2.8.4-2mdk lm_sensors-2.8.4-2mdk gkrellm-2.1.25-2mdk I ran sensors-detect and get this at end: To make the sensors modules behave correctly, add these lines to /etc/modules.conf: #----cut here---- # I2C module options alias char-major-89 i2c-dev #----cut here---- To load everything that is needed, add this to some /etc/rc* file: #----cut here---- # I2C adapter drivers modprobe i2c-viapro modprobe i2c-isa # I2C chip drivers modprobe lm80 modprobe via686a # sleep 2 # optional /usr/local/bin/sensors -s # recommended #----cut here---- WARNING! If you have some things built into your kernel, the list above will contain too many modules. Skip the appropriate ones! You really should try these commands right now to make sure everything is working properly. Monitoring programs won't work until it's done. Do you want to generate /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors? (YES/no): Copy prog/init/lm_sensors.init to /etc/rc.d/init.d/lm_sensors for initialization at boot time. Last time, I believe I just rebooted and it worked. This time nothing. I have added those lines it said to in /etc/modules.conf. Not sure what else I should try here.
  7. If the problem is with the S3 Trio card... I remember I was stuck using XFree86 3.3.6 while everyone else was moving to version 4. It worked fine for my purposes back in the MDK 8.0 days. Don't know about using with Mandrake 10. There's a rpm available for these cards in /contribs. Name: XFree86-S3 Version: 3.3.6-29mdk

    install trouble

    Welcome to our forum :D Why not just use... urpmi webmin and let Mandrake install the file from same CDs (or same source) you installed Mandrake from ? It will be a slightly older package, but was custom built for MDK 10 and will work great. as for the bad signigure/key messages, you'll get those from rpms downloaded from other sources... most of us ignore that message and click to install anyway.
  9. That had happened to me before (community edition). After installing nvidia, my fonts all changed size. Not quite double, but a couple points different. I don't know why and I wasn't too worry about it, since I intended on installing official shortly. Not sure, but may have been the 4496 release.

    Those work for me... (but I don't use the slash). $cd .. $cd ~ I also like to use the <tab> key to auto complete the path. Say you have a folder named downloads in your home directory. [user@localhost home]$cd dow<tab> becomes [user@localhost home]$cd downloads Real handy for long names or those with spaces in them. Also confirms you got the path correct. :D
  11. If you click on that menu entry, you will get a "window" asking for your root password. Enter it and then you should get a "window" much like in the picture I have attached. My example shows what you need to do IF you would want to remove a game called "supertux"
  12. The "101" brothers ... as in Linux 101 ???
  13. Welcome to our forum. mplayer mplayer-gui these rpms's should be on your install CD's. Then head over to PLF ftp://ftp.easynet.fr/plf/mandrake/10.0/i586/ and get this and install win32-codecs-1.5-1plf.i586.rpm
  14. try the file found here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display...2_1.0-5336.html and follow the instructions in the README linked on that page. Basically you need to exit any grafical desktop. (log in as root... command line only) change to the directory you downloaded the file. (cd /home/downloads ) run this command sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run It should do its thing without any problems. I emphasize "should" --- Sometimes you will find yourself stuck at the command line and will need to be able to edit files with "vi" or have to run "XFdrake" to set you graffical desktop back up. Your XFree86Config-4 should have two sections that will look like this after you install: Section "Module" Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension Load "v4l" # Video for Linux Load "extmod" Load "type1" Load "freetype" Load "glx" # 3D layer EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "device1" Driver "nvidia" Option "DPMS" EndSection
  15. Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0". Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual Sounds like maybe you need to install a video driver... What video card are you running? Either that or we need to fix your XF86config-4 file.
  16. like this ? I added: border-right: solid red; border-left: solid red; (notice it is just "border-right"... no width) under the a:hover section and also put in ";" after the last line of each section. All the stylesheets I have worked on have the semi-colon after each line of each section. PS: forum won't accept .css files had to add .txt tymestyle.css.txt
  17. PLF's site has this for Mandrake: ftp://ftp.easynet.fr/plf/mandrake/10.0/i586/ xscreensaver-matrix-4.14-4plf.i586.rpm your will also need to install the base xsreensaver rpm (plus maybe 2 other depends) You need to start via terminal with: xscreensaver
  18. Try running this from a terminal: xscreensaver I decided to install it later last night, and found I needed to start this screensaver program this way. ALSO, why rpm -U... should of been rpm -ivh (being a new program your installing)
  19. If what you seek is not on your Install CD's, and not in the contribs folder on Mandrake ftp sites, then check out PLF's site: ftp://ftp.easynet.fr/plf/mandrake/10.0/i586/ xscreensaver-matrix-4.14-4plf.i586.rpm (never installed this yet, so can't help much right now, ) As for your friend and the freezes, just open a new thread (in the hardware section... cause that is the most likey cause of the problem... not because of not having CD3) Explain as much as possible about what he is running, his hardware, and where it freezes.
  20. Do you always have this hdd hooked up when you boot ? I am not sure, but it sounds like your fstab entry for it is not quite right, so it keeps making a new entry for it on every bootup.
  21. I have these as plug-in paths: /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins /usr/lib/netscape/plugins among many others To uninstall things... it is probably best to use the "Remove Software" menu item. You should find it at: K -> System -> Configuration -> Packaging -> Remove Software or you could use urpme but this could wipe out an entire desktop (due to dependancies) with a quick slip on the <enter> key.
  22. just hit enter and let it install the files where it wants to. Konq will pick it up from that folder as long as it is configured to in Configure You Desktop/ WebBrowsing/ Plug-ins.
  23. Here's some good reading material... from our friend aRTee: http://www.mandrake.tips.4.free.fr/install100.html also, MDK 10 includes two versions of GIMP gimp-1.2.5 = photoshop 4 - 5.5 gimp2 = photoshop 7 - CS (well not quite... but you can't beat the price ;) )
  24. error: Failed dependencies: libtk8.4.so is needed by gaim-0.79-0mdk10.0 I looked up this file... it belongs to... tk which is on Installation CD 1. I also checked my installation of gaim and it does not use this file. I have gaim (version gaim-0.75-5mdk) installed and working, but I do not have tk-8.4.5-3mdk installed. Check your Software Media Manager and see if you still have your install CD's listed as a source. I don't really know why exactly gaim wants this file... possibly you selected wrong version to install ?
  25. Try this in a terminal or command line... [scoopy@localhost scoopy]$ rpm -qa | grep urpmi if it is installed, it will return something like this... urpmi-4.4.5-10mdk gurpmi-4.4.5-10mdk if not installed, will return back to prompt. It is #1. :D Stick around, you will learn.
