      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

    games, computers, Linux, alcohol, heavy metal, and of yes GAMES!
  1. Why are people afraid of Linux?

    People don't use linux because most people don't want to have to learn something new, they did not want to learn to use windows either(in their rather limited capacity) they were forced too. That is all.
  2. Oldies you enjoyed

    Oldies include Doom 1 & 2 commander keen Masters of orion Tower Assualt Dune lemmings xcom ahhhhh good times!
  3. Do you Dual boot for games?

    I keep a windows box for playing games, i managed to kick my WOW addiction and now play guildwars which i don't feel the need to spend my entire life playing. Still play ut2004 etc on my linux box, and of course do everything else in linux, home and work.
  4. *needed* software

    Open office has terrible file locking problems when using samba and accessing via linux. Linux users can open files already opened by a windows users or other linux user and overwrite them. And yes the charting in calc has always been substandard.
  5. Surf the net...

    The best browser is the one you like the best. Use several and decide for yourself.
  6. Will you buy Oblivion (The Elder Scrolls IV)

    I will definately buy it, even if i have to play it on windows. I only hope that the engine doesn't suck as bad as the morrowind one for freezing while loading zones every 2 seconds.
  7. Where has Mandrake gone?

    The only things i never liked about mandrake are it's generally bad handling of removable usb memory sticks or cameras and the weird library and header locations. Often programs never compile without a lot of effort(programs that are generally fine in fedora, if only i didn't hate using fedora). Those two issues are the only real issues i have with mandrake now and in the past, but i am still using 10.1 so the first issue may be finally resolved?, i am certain the second issue is not.
  8. Enemy Territory download

    I had the same problem, there is even a forum discussion in which everyone mentions they have the same problem.
  9. How many linux games do you own?

    Hmmm i have commercial games that have linux binaries released UT UT2003 UT2004 Tactical ops Q3A Q3TA -loki version Doom3 myth2 -loki heavy gear2 -loki Civ alpha cent -loki NWN and its 2 expansions. probably a few more i can't think of. I don't think you can really count medal of honor series and serious sam 1 & 2, i have those as well.
  10. Opera

    I don't like the interface with opera, i also prefer mozilla suit to firefox. Have used opera to render sites that mozilla wouldn't because of ie coded html. Use konqueror to get on to my bank site as it spoofs the os well enough to pass the banks crappy compatability checks.
  11. How powerful is Mandriva?

    Mandriva is a linux dist and we all know linux can do infinite loops in three seconds flat so Mandriva is obviously incredibly fast ;)
  12. EU Parliament takes axe to patents directive

    Down with software patents! Down with bananas! ;) Yes to Mangoes!
  13. DVD Movies

    I love mplayer and use it for all video except dvd's because it lacks menu support, for dvd's i use xine.
  14. Updates CD

    This is a great idea for me, i often have to update multiple computers in different locations with slow connections, an update cd would be very nice!. Cheers :)
  15. SELECT units.unitName, units.unitCode FROM units, courseUnits WHERE units.unitCode = courseUnits.unitCode AND courseUnits.courseCode = "CTB" Non numeric values must be quoted. Also i think you need to associate the two tables common fields in your WHERE clause "units.unitCode = courseUnits.unitCode". It's early morning here and i have not had my cup of tea yet so it may or may not work ;)
