      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

  5. Add and remove software problem

    Hi Jim Thanks. I have edited the file as suggested. This solved the problem partially. The DVD drive is recognized correctly. and device name changed. But my DVD is not recognized by Mandriva . May be there is some problem with the DVD supplied by Linux For you Magazine. Ashraf

  7. Add and remove software problem

    Hi I am a new Mandriva 2008 user. I installed from DVD supplied from Linux For You Magazine. When I try to install software using this DVD a problem occurs. I get a message "insert Mandriva 2008 free installer in /dev/cdrom2". When I insert the DVD in my DVD drive it does not recognize the DVD .Simply repeats the message 'Insert .......'. My DVD drive is mounted as /dev/cdrom1, not as /dev/cdrom2. How can I change the device name in Add and remove software tool in Mandriva 2008. Pls help [Moved from Tips&Tricks - arctic.
