  1. I've scoured my BIOS setup 3 times and have found no option for that. I fear Dell has removed the capability to enable this. I do remember on a previous Windows installation on this machince, I had enabled PAE, but it was via windows, not my BIOS (obviously). It's not a huge deal, however, as you've stated about the decrease in performance.

    Fedora 11

    Yeahhh, I've been waiting on this as well. We'll see how it goes.
  3. Something weird. I now have a total of 4 GB RAM on my system, but only 3.2 GB are recognized. I tried installing kernel-server-latest and after booting into it, I still can only see 3.2 GB RAM (exactly the same amount). I don't have onboard video, and my 8600 GT should have more than enough memory. Wondering what the hell could be the cause of this. I've checked my BIOS for settings in relation to this, but to no avail.
  4. I have no idea why Mandriva doesn't have a direct link to it in their Downloads page... Here's another example of someone who couldn't find it (he still gave a positive review, with his lone issue being he couldn't find the 64-bit version): http://www.itnewstoday.com/?p=355
  5. Nice. I wonder how long this has been going on?
  6. Thanks for the help! I fixed this today by installing the public key (my trainer either forgot that he need to install it, or Mandriva works with ssh different than Fedora), then adding the private key (after I'd started ssh-agent of course).
  7. I just started working at a NOC and we have a private key for ssh that we use on all our servers. All the techs are able to ssh as root to all the servers using this private key. I'm the only tech using Mandriva, and I'm also the only tech who is unable to ssh to a machine without being asked for a password. What I did was: ssh-add [path to key file] When I did that, the message returned was: Identity added: [key file] Now, in theory, I should be able to ssh to any machine without being asked for a password. However, this is what I get when I try to ssh to a machine: The authenticity of host '[x.x.x.x]:port ([x.x.x.x]:port)' can't be established. RSA key fingerprint is xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? What am I missing? Here are the options in my /etc/ssh/ssh_config file: Host * ForwardX11 yes Protocol 2,1 # If this option is set to yes then remote X11 clients will have full access # to the original X11 display. As virtually no X11 client supports the untrusted # mode correctly we set this to yes. ForwardX11Trusted yes # Send locale-related environment variables #SendEnv LANG LC_CTYPE LC_NUMERIC LC_TIME LC_COLLATE LC_MONETARY LC_MESSAGES #SendEnv LC_PAPER LC_NAME LC_ADDRESS LC_TELEPHONE LC_MEASUREMENT #SendEnv LC_IDENTIFICATION LC_ALL GSSAPIAuthentication yes
  8. I was missing the routers option in my dhcpd.conf file... :ph34r:
  9. I'm having a weird issue with my dhcp server on my CentOS box. It appears to be setup correctly (I'm using webmin 1.470) and I really can't figure out what is causing the problem. Whenever a client uses my Cent box for DHCP, it'll get an IP address, a hostname, DNS servers, etc., but it WILL NOT connect to the internet for some reason. I can ping the other machines on my network, but I cannot resolve hostnames whatsoever (not from the DNS on my cent box nor from Now, this leads me to believe that it's a DNS issue, but there are no problems with my BIND server. To confirm this, I disabled DHCP on my Cent box and enabled DHCP on my router. If clients on the network get their DHCP information FROM THE ROUTER, everything works, INCLUDING resolving names using my internal BIND server... What setting in my DHCP server could be causing this mess? Any ideas?
  10. Thanks for that insight! And yes, these were done as root.
  11. Yeah I forgot to mention I've tried that as well as drakx11, and it tells me it's an unknown command ??? I probably didn't select some needed packages or something...
  12. After installing Mandriva, I'm unable to get into the desktop environment. After booting, it took me to the black login screen (not the kde login screen). Here, when I run "startx," it gives the following: (EE) Failed to load module "freetype" (module does not exist, 0) (EE) No devices detected. Fatal server error: no screens found . . . xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): unable to connect to X server xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error. Any ideas?

    What is the command to allow ntpd to broadcast to other clients on the network? I looked in the config file and read the manual but can't really figure out how to set this up... EDIT - I got it to work, thanks
  14. Thanks, this is a really helpful post. Perfect explanation!
  15. Let me explain my home setup. I have a desktop running Mandriva 2009.1 RC1, a laptop running Mandriva 2009.1 RC1, and a server running Mandriva 2009.0 with no GUI, only webmin installed to administer the services. Anyways, everytime I want to FTP to my server, I'm able to get connected, but it doesn't allow me to see any folders. For example, I log in with the username "andre", and it takes me to the home folder of the user "andre," but I can't view any folders within that folder. Only after ssh'ing into the server and running the following, am I able to view the folders under /home/andre: chmod -R 777 /home/andre And the thing is, I have to do this EVERYTIME I ftp to the server, in order to view the folders. Any ideas on why this is happening? [moved from Software by spinynorman]
