      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. How to? LILO & BOOT splash theme

    Thanks guys (and/or gals) but that is not what I need. I already changed the Bootsplash and played around with it. I don't want to simple change LiLO splash and Bootsplash but remake them :D ;) Bootsplash remaining prob How to redefine the position of the elapsed bar (silent mode) or dimensions of the text window (verbose mode)? Ah! Without having to reboot each time I change values in CFG files LilO Splash remaining prob How to make a new MESSAGE file (using the old format & not using the new bitmap facility of lilo)? Thnaks in advance. B) Lopo
  2. How to? LILO & BOOT splash theme

    But what about if we want to make a *new* lilo message file? Do you know of any link? Thanks in advance. B) Lopo
  3. Hi, Do you know by chance how to make the message files? I have a Script-fu that processes some parts but it seems that it is required a mkbootmsg script that seems to be SuSE specific Best, B) Lopo
  4. What kind of "translation" this requires? I didn't understood it well, sorry :) In any case, I'm a native-speaker of portuguese (Portugal). 1, Lopo Lencastre de Almeida
  5. Upgrading 10.0 to 10.1

    Hi, If all below 10.1 use XFree86 and now 10.1 will use XOrg how can we upgrade the desktop? Does 10.1 remove XFree86 and replace it by XOrg OR do we have to uninstall XFree86 after 10.1 upgrade? Thanks for you help. 1, B) Lopo
  6. My own Live CD

    I also had this problem. I solved it with some config testing in KDE's Sound Configuration and removing Totem (which crashed a lot more). It doesn't crash now, but I'm using Mandrake 9.2 OEM with a few add-ons ;) 1, B) Lopo
  7. My own Live CD

    Hi, Great effort. It is not only a portuguese version. It is a step forward in relation to your last version. Congratulations :D Meanwhile, you don't mind I issue here a few notes? Hope not. I noticed that some of the apps that are not translated in RL are in portuguese here in my PC (Mdk 9.2). Why not use KBear instead of gFTP? KBear is a KDE App. One more thing... If it is planned to be a portuguese version you should include the brand new OpenOffice.org 1.1.0 Portuguese instead of KOffice becasue it benefits from a joint effort from Sun Portugal, Portuguese Government and several portuguese companies. It has also increasing support both in Portugal and Brasil. For a portuguese version it will be an better choice rather than KOffice that has sparce support And finally, for those apps I saw in your screenshots, K3B has also a portuguese version :D Best, B) Lopo
  8. My own Live CD

    See it at http://www.freepia.org/ It seems to be exactly what you are looking for (or almost). 1, B) Lopo
  9. Totem and RealPlayer

    Hi, I do periodical updates for my 9.2 Discovery machine. Suddently Totem and Real Player stop working. When starting they both freeze and I have to use xKill to close them Does anyone have a clue of what could be happening??? Best and thanks, Lopo
  10. Make a Mandrake distribution.

    Gerard, a bit OT ... How did you build your livecd to get the usb key support working? Which option do I have to append? Which cvs version of mklivecd? I too would like to know more on this. I'd like to start an office version that could be using only a USB 256 key. No CD :D And of course, only one language. Could be great for traveling propuses or tech support staff. Best, ;) Lopo
  11. VIA EPIA M10K

    Thanks! Info at http://www.viaarena.com/?PageID=325 But it mention Mandrake 9.1 and I have 9.2... By the way... it will be possible to record video (I see a TV out but don't know how to TV in) with MPEG-2 encoding??? Any further Best and regards, B) Lopo
  12. VIA EPIA M10K

  13. Help in preparing a Game Machine

    Hi guys! I'm preparing an ATX machine to work with MDK and Games and after it goes to the press so they can test it and hopefully make a review on it. It was a challenge made by a friend for us (me and the linux community) to show that a regular (sort of) PC with Mandrake Linux could compete with regular PC with MS Windows XP in the games front. It is not needed to offer ALL MSWinXP's panoplia of software, but only one or two of each that really work Hope we win :unsure: I need some links to software (if possible some heavy 3D FPS and free) to install and test. And of course some hints on how to make them work extra-fine :lol: Machine configuration: Mainboard FIC P4M-800T, Socket 478, VIA PT800 2,8 GHz Intel Pentium 4 w/ HT Tech., FSB800 256MB DDRAM PC400 120 GB Seagate Barracuda HDD Teac DVD/CD-RW Combo Radeon 9200V 128MB DDR SDRAM AGP 4x RiserCard V1020 SAT Tuner Card Ports 4x USB 2.0, 2x IEEE 1394 Firewire, 6 ch. audio, SPDIF out 10/100 Base-T Ethernet, serial, parallel, mouse and kb Mandrake 9.2 Discovery All is much appreciated :) Thank you all in advance for your kind cooperation. 1[], B) Lopo
  14. Hi, I don't think so :D Did you heard about China Government positions and GNU/Linux? They surelly won't care a dawn to what happens in USA Courts B) Lopo
