  1. From fstab find what mount points your optical drives use (usually /media/cdrom for one of them). When the bug happens reload one of the cd/dvd trays with a CD then mount it from terminal: mount /media/cdrom replace /media/cdrom with whatever mount point the drive actually has. Post any error messages here.
  2. What's the output of this in terminal: rpm -qa | grep nvidia rpm -qa | grep kernel uname -a
  3. medo3891

    gcc compiler

    First set up the online repositories: http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Docs/Basic_tas...tions_available Then install gcc and gcc-c++ .
  4. newdog: try this as root in terminal: su urpmi --debug libxulrunner1.9
  5. Yeah, try nvidia-settings as root from terminal: su nvidia-settings Go to X server Display configuration, then when you get the resolution you want working don't forget to click "save to X configuration file" to make the change permanent.
  6. If you are running kde4.1.x in 2009.0 then read my previous post.
  7. Where did you change the resolution? It should be changed in the Mandriva control centre>hardware>set up the graphical server>resolution, you should also select your monitor in Monitor, if your specific monitor isn't there then choose something under Generic that matches the resolution and refresh rate you want. What's the output of this in terminal: su monitor-edid
  8. If you you are using kde4.1.x then have a look here: http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/2009.0_Errata#...digital_mode.29
  9. Try reconfiguring your card using drakx11, open the Mandriva control centre>hardware>set up the graphical server>graphics card.
  10. As root in terminal: su urpmi.update -av urpmi --debug glibc --debug will make it more chatty.
  11. For the second error, if you are trying to load something from terminal as root then try using: su - notice the extra - after su.
  12. Can you try with a new user account, just for testing.
  13. Instal gdm then switch the display manger, in the Mandriva control centre>boot>display manager, make it GDM. See if this makes any change.
  14. See your other thread at forum.kde.org: http://forum.kde.org/getting-kde-to-work-a...lt-t-38805.html Adding to this, I think you can edit .dmrc and make the Session= line look like this: Session=01KDE I don't know the exact string after = in the above line, you can find out by looking at the file names in /etc/X11/dm/Sessions.
  15. Firefox doesn't have a dependency on either seamonkey or totem-gstreamer. Try this as root in terminal: su urpme nspluginwrapper java-1.7.0-icedtea -a then restart firefox and try again.
  16. For the Akregator problem make sure oxygen-icon-theme is installed. Also try installing and running htop, see if anything is consuming the CPU or RAM. theYenYeti: the mcc icons problem is a different issue, fixed since yesterday in cooker.
  17. I don't know of a tool but I know how to do it manually. Edit /etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg and make the top look like this: { post-clean: 0 } From now on any package urpmi downloads (either using the GUI (rpmdrake) or the CLI) will be saved to /var/cache/urpmi/rpms. Now before an reinstallation backup the folder /var/cache/urpmi/rpms, then after the reinstall set up the online repositories as usual then put the rpms folder back in the same place as the old system (in /var/cache/urpmi/), and update your system, any package in the cache won't be downloaded again. (Don't forget to edit /etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg in the new system to save new packages too).
  18. What's the output of this in terminal: rpm -qa | grep java ll /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins Also if you go to about:plugins in FF do you see java listed there?
  19. If ~/.local/share/applications doesn't exist then the system wide /usr/share/applications will be used. ~/.local/share/applications will be recreated the first time you change a file association or create a custom menu entry. Don't get deterred changing file associations, it'll probably work OK next time, you just hit a snag. KDE4.1.x is a bit messy managing file associations, it'd would probably have been not so hard to edit the files manually to resolve the ooo writer problem but it's easier just deleting/renaming the whole folder : )
  20. Rename ~/.local/share/applications in your home folder to applications-old then in terminal as user: kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental Renaming the applications folder will reset all file types associations. If you want to keep the applications folder, it'll be a bit tedious, post the contents of: .local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
  21. Just for testing, create a new user account and test there, so we can pin point the problem.
  22. Does this file exist on your system: /usr/share/applications/writer.desktop ? If it exist post its contents.
  23. If you are using a nvidia card, then this is a known bug. So if it's actually a nvidia try this: open menu>tools>system tools>nvidia display settings, this should correct the video colours instantaneously, if it persists open "X server XVideo Settings" and click "reset hardware defaults".
