Awesome (4/7)



  1. What you need is a udev rule for the 3g. I only have a rudimentary understanding of udev rules and can't be of much help but this link and/or a web search may help. http://reactivated.net/udevrules.php
  2. How did you remove the kernels? If you still have the install medea "the DVD not the live CD" start an installation and when asked choose to upgrade. That may give you a bootable kernel.
  3. Welcome to the forum Rick. What operating system are you using? I've heard of problems such as you're seeing on some versions of Windows but not on Linux. Ken
  4. If you installed a 32bit version and have 4GB or more of ram kernel-server is installed to take full advantage of the ram. Installing the new kernel is not a problem as the old kernel is not removed and can be booted if you have problems with the new one. Ken
  5. I'm still using Mandriva 2008.1 on my laptop and it works the way you say you want. I just right click on the wifi icon and mouse over "Wireless connections" in the pop-up menu which then shows all connections within range I then click on the desired one. I only have to enter a key or password the first time I connect to a network which requires one and the system remembers it for next time. Ken
  6. Have you tried going through the Display option?
  7. The restricted repository was for PowerPack commercially licensed software and only available directly from Mandriva. I'm not sure if it exists anymore.
  8. For what it's worth updating via MCC only looks at repositories marked as Update whereas urpmi --auto-update looks at all enabled repositories, even newly added ones.

    Have you filed a bug report? Without that no one will know there's a problem to fix.
  10. I just reread your origanal post and that's expected behaviour. A mounted CD or DVD will always be read only, it can't be otherwise. Why the device notifier is not seeing them I don't know but for now just un-comment the /dev/sr0 line in /etc/fstab. For write access you need blank media and a burning program, either GUI or CLI.
  11. As far as I know optical drives like USB drives should not have an /etc/fstab entry. So what happens if you remove or comment out the /dev/sr0 line?
  12. John, you'll probably want to make two shares /home and /MixedMedia.For access I found "allow real remote root access" works best if you're going to create directories on the remote share.
  13. There's no need to partition the stick or wipe it as writing an ISO to the stick using dd or Mandriva-seed wipes the entire stick. Also the hybrid ISO's when written to a USB stick will show up in MCC as a CD/DVD burner not as a hard drive. I've found gparted useful to partition and use the unused space on the stick on a Linux system although Windows fails to find more than the first partition.
  14. Since the disks are the same size and if you have a Live CD dd might be a good option. Boot the CD open a terminal and su to root, then dd if=/dev/sdX of=/dev/sdY where X is the old disk and Y is the new disk.
  15. It is possible but I think you'll find that the slower bus speed of the PCI slot even with a high end card will not give much an increase over a low end AGP card.
