      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

  1. problem with NetApplet network-manager software

    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. Can't boot after replacing kernel

    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. USB stick install of Mageia [solved]

    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. [solved]Mageia 2.0 kernel update

    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. one laptop - different networks

    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. Newbie Mandriva user

    Have you tried going through the Display option?
  7. Easy urpmi

    The restricted repository was for PowerPack commercially licensed software and only available directly from Mandriva. I'm not sure if it exists anymore.
  8. skype [solved]

    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.
  9. Mageia2-rc

    Have you filed a bug report? Without that no one will know there's a problem to fix.
  10. Trouble accessing SATA DVD Burner

    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. Trouble accessing SATA DVD Burner

    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. @ Connected Computers

    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. USB stick install of Mageia [solved]

    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. Can a bootable drive be easily copied? [solved]

    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. Can I convert from AGP to PCI graphics card?

    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.
