  1. Perhaps a udev rule? See http://reactivated.net/udevrules.php It's heavy reading but probably what you need.
  2. If that 70GB's is in /home it does no good so please post the output asked for.

    Do I have glib?

    Do you have the upper left boxes set to All and All?
  4. In a terminal run df and post the results so we can see where you have free disk space. And don't worry about your English, it's my native and only language and I still don't understand half of what I write.
  5. Are you sure your repositories are set up correctly as I see audacious-2.3-2mdv2010.1.x86_64.rpm in the contrib repository of 2010.2 and yes 2010.1 and 2010.2 are the same animal.
  6. That would make four dvds, KDE64bit, KDE32bit, Gnome64bit and Gnome32bit. As to why Mandriva dropped the traditional install media in favour of Live only media for installation your guess is good as mine.
  7. Talk about bloat, that command would install anything with gnome in the name, 289 packages by my count in Cooker right now, three quarters or more of them you'll never need or use.Better to just use urpmi task-gnome Then install the few gnome packages that you want that were not included.
  8. It was the live CDs and locales that causes the bloat. Building them for KDE and Gnome required four or five ISO's each to split up all the languages and still have room on a CD for the operating system and enough programs to get an idea of what Mandriva is about. Going to a live DVD all languages could be included and still have room for an operating system and enough programs. I can't say I'm happy with only having live DVDs and no regular install media but it is what it is and we'll see how it works out for Mandriva.
  9. In my opinion people are reading this all wrong. Gnome as well as LXDE, Enlightenment etc. will still be in the repositories just like they have been, the only change I see is a streamlining of the install media. There will only be two ISOs, one for 32bit and one for 64bit instead of the twelve ISOs for 2010.2 That's far less work for the paid employees come release time and if the community remains strong we should see a full range of media shortly after release. They won't be officially supported by Mandriva but they will be there.
  10. I see no sign of GNOME 3.0 in Cooker so that shouldn't be a problem. Mandriva hasn't said what install media will be used for PowerPack or even whether it will be available for this release. All we can do is wait and pray.
  11. Not with 2011, it's a live dvd and installs just like the live cd.You get one desktop and that is KDE. One way around that would be to change your sources to 2011 and do an update or you could use the boot.iso and install over the internet.
  12. You've convinced me, not XP though.I've been trying Linux on a friends laptop, Magiea and Mandriva 2010.1 don't work to my liking on this hardware but 2008.1 does so that's what I'll install for her, old is not necessarily bad. :D
  13. Sorry, I guess I wasn't clear on what happens.The software from the USB storage is installed on Windows, when the software installed on Windows sees the USB storage it turns it off and turns on the scanning device. usb_modeswitch try's to do the same thing. I don't have anything that needs this switching so if it doesn't happen automatically I have no idea on how to configure it.
  14. Not all all-in-ones have the mass storage.If I understand correctly what happens under Windows is that the software for the device is on the mass storage instead of a CD and once installed the software automatically switches from storage mode to device mode every time the device is powered up or detected on boot. As most manufactures do not fully support Linux we're left to work around problems like this.
  15. And there lies the problem.Install USB_ModeSwitch, it may switch off the Mass Storage automatically and switch to the scanner. If not then you've got some reading to do. There are several articles on the Internet about its use.
  16. It's doable with what you have. Just shrink /home by about 20G and install the new operating system there, reuse /home but and I can't emphasize this enough create a new user for the new install, that way it will not touch any of your configurations.
  17. Another silly question. Is your computer running at 4:00AM or do you turn it off for the night?

    John, I just tried installing the rpm from plf and it didn't install the program only the install link. After looking at the link I ran sh -c "wget http://api.mandriva.com/3rd-party/200800/downloadURL/GoogleEarth -O GoogleEarthLinux.bin && sh +x GoogleEarthLinux.bin" from a root prompt which installed GoogleEarth.

    And the error messages when you try from a console? Just for info, neither Mandriva or PLF package googleearth, they only package a script that downloads the rpm from google then agrees to the licence terms for you and then installs it.
  20. How did you come to the conclusion that gtk provides glib? I would think the package libglib would be what provides glib. If you haven't already done so set up your online repositories http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Docs/Basic_tasks/Installing_and_removing_software#Making_more_applications_available Then enable contrib-backports to install the latest gftp, all the dependencies will be installed automagically.
  21. Both "aumix" and "alsamixer" have more options and may do what tf1 wants without having to disable pulse audio. Ken
  22. Have you filed a bug report @ https://qa.mandriva.com/ ?
  23. Thanks for the barley sandwich. :D Further tip: If ./truecrypt-6.3a-setup-x86 returns truecrypt-6.3a-setup-x86 is not executable then preface it with "sh " sh ./truecrypt-6.3a-setup-x86 This works for most if not all scripts without setting the executable flag on the script.
  24. A tip for the future, Linux only looks in your path for the command not the current directory. To execute a command or script in the current directory you preface it with ./ thus ./truecrypt-6.3a-setup-x86 would have worked. Ken
