  1. Hi, I've a limited bandwidth net connection. There is unlimited download available only between 2-00AM to 8-00AM. So my question is how can I schedule updates or package installation so that it starts automatically after 2-00AM without my intervention? [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  2. Well the Mandriva boot problem is solved. The kernel loading was halting after a message "Clocksource tsc unstable". Used a boot parameter "Clocksource=acpi_pm" alongwith noapic, nolapic and solved the problem. I'll install Mandriva at night.
  3. I can't disable SATA or PATA because my windows installation is in SATA disk and my DVD writer is PATA. I need both. :unsure:
  4. My DVD is master and IDE HDD is slave. So this morning I pulled the data cable of the HDD and tried again. But again same results.
  5. I downloaded "mandriva-linux-2008-one-KDE-cdrom-i586". I burned the CD at 4X speed. Also i checked the md5 checksum which indicates the download is o.k. I tried Mandriva in LiveCD mode. It failed to boot.It stopped with a blank screen just after showing the message "Loading Linux kernel". I tried different options by changing resolution and also selecting noapic, acpi=off etc. without any effect. Surprisingly Ubuntu booted at first try. I also downloaded and tried livecd of Mint toady. Faced same problem. After the initial splash screen it shows "loading vmlinuz.." followed by "loading initrd..." and then just hangs.I've tried the compatibility mode also. So which may be the problem here? My config is : Athlon dual core 4000 Jetway 680G motherboard (ATI 1200 series display driver) 2GB RAM 160GB PATA, 80GB SATA (divided in two NTFS partitions) IDE DVD-RW However, the Mandriva One CD and the Mint CD that I've downloaded work correctly on other computer with Intel chipsets. So, I think the problem is with my ATI display driver.Is it?
