  1. I think I did originally post this somewhere else but it was moved to here.

    I really like Mandriva and dont want to stray away from it but I'll change to PCLOS if I need to.

    It correctly detects all my hardware but it's so bare and I hate Synaptic.


    So, this is my last cry for help. Someone must know how to get my resolution problems solved please?

  2. Hi,

    I wasn't aware MCNLive have a later release other than 2007.1. The only other distro similar is Mandriva Flash

    and I dont want to pay for it when the one I have works OK. Regarding your questions.......

    Yes I am running KDE and no, KRandRTray will not allow to change it any higher than 10x7.

    Harddrake tells me that I'm already using the 12x8 res but in reality I'm not.

    Heres some screenshots.




  3. Hello,

    I'm new to the forum and need help configuring the intel drivers on my aspire laptop.

    I'm running MCN Live 2007.1 on a USB Microvault. Everything woks as expected except the resolution.

    Apon first running the resolution wizard it asked me if I wanted to use the 915 drivers and I said yes.

    The resolution could now be changed to 12x8. Great I thought. I shutdown the session and rebooted into it today

    and I'm back to 12x7 and It wont allow me to change it. I tried specifying different drivers and configurations in Harddrake

    and I end up with a mirrored version of my screen and a rainbow of colors under the taksbar panel.

    My video card is an Intel 945GM and I would appreciate any help.

    Thanks in advance.
