      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. MP4 Videos from U-Tube [solved]

    I’m glad you have it working. It’s nice to see some new post here when I check in. :)
  2. MP4 Videos from U-Tube [solved]

    I just used firefox 29 with downloadhelper 4.9.22 to d/l an mp4 from youtube. It plays ok with vlc media player 2.0.8. I’m not sure why your audio is missing. Maybe if you d/l the file in flv format and convert it to mp4 it will work?
  3. MP4 Videos from U-Tube [solved]

    Hi John Please check the mp4 file with mediainfo. It should be in your repos, it is also available here: http://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo for Mageia 4: http://pkgs.org/mageia-4/mageia-core-release-x86_64/mediainfo-0.7.64-2.mga4.x86_64.rpm.html Install it and check for audio like this: greg@halfway:~/Videos/dlh-vids$ mediainfo novena.mp4 General Complete name : novena.mp4 Format : MPEG-4 Format profile : Base Media / Version 2 Codec ID : mp42 File size : 13.7 MiB Duration : 2mn 24s Overall bit rate mode : Variable Overall bit rate : 797 Kbps Encoded date : UTC 2014-04-02 05:46:13 -snip- Audio ID : 2 Format : AAC Format/Info : Advanced Audio Codec Format profile : LC Codec ID : 40 Duration : 2mn 24s Bit rate mode : Variable Bit rate : 103 Kbps Channel count : 2 channels Channel positions : Front: L R Sampling rate : 48.0 KHz Compression mode : Lossy Delay relative to video : 83ms Stream size : 1.77 MiB (13%) Encoded date : UTC 2014-04-02 05:46:13 Please post your audio section here.
  4. OpenMandriva LX 2013.0 Final is out.

    Hi Glitz The post is on Portal News now. Thanks :)
  5. I believe that RHEL5.3 libraries are too old for firefox-25. From: mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/25.0a2/system-requirements/ Firefox will not run at all without the following libraries or packages: GTK+ 2.18 or higher GLib 2.22 or higher Pango 1.14 or higher X.Org 1.0 or higher (1.7 or higher is recommended) libstdc++ 4.3 or higher
  6. Kieth, If you're using KDE... you can just copy this and save it as display-screen.sh (or whatever you want to name it) in ~/.kde4/Autostart/ #!/bin/bash xset +dpms && xset dpms 0 360 420 & you can adjust the times for your needs.
  7. gnu backgammon problem

    Turn the predefined settings down. It's probably set on expert by default, so try the advanced setting. If you really want to get spanked... set it on grandmaster. :D
  8. dlink 2740R - not starting at boot [solved]

    Kieth You can also use the -c (count) option with ping, i. e. ping -c 5 will transmit 5 packets and stop.
  9. gnu backgammon problem

    I was also having an intermittent segmentation fault during the game. So I opened the game with the -d (debug) option gnubg -d for more output, but that didn't show the problem. I then used gdb to run the game gdb /path/to/gnubg then entered 'run' to check. This gave me some libpulse text in the output. So I turned off the sound and the game hasn't had a sigsegv since... YMMV :unsure:
  10. gnu backgammon problem

    Here's a quick fix... if you don't need sound. Open the game gui and go to settings > options > sound > and disable the sound effects > click OK. :) Also, you 'may' have to do this every time you start the gui... or add the -q option to the command line: gnubg -q :D
  11. No "Create File" in Dolphin's context menu

    I think the problem / change is in the /usr/share/apps/dolphin/dolphinui.rc file... I do not have Mandriva installed to check this. I would suggest making a copy of your current dolphinui.rc file in a safe place. Then d/l and extract the attached dolphinui.tar.gz and replace your /usr/share/apps/dolphin/dolphinui.rc with it. Restart dolphin and see if it works, if not, replace it with the original you have. Please let us know if that works for you. Removed the file – it didn't solve the problem.
  12. This thread was 15 months old, so I’ve started a new one and moved your pics to it. :)
  13. Killer Apps

    If you're referring to autossh, it's in the official Mandriva contrib repo. Welcome aboard! :)
  14. This is from the cooker ML yesterday: I like it!
  15. You can also remove the mdkonline rpm. Then you can check for updates when it's convenient for you by using the software management tools... that is how I do it. :)
  16. Incorrect printing

    I'm using an F2430 with Mandriva 2010.0 and HPLIP 3.9.10 without any problems. Are you using your 'HP Device Manager' to set it up? Like this:
  17. APC UPS ES 750 never seen by Mandriva 10.1

    You need to load either ohci_hcd or uhci_hcd for a USB host controller driver. I'm not sure why you're having this problem, but I can show you what I'm using for my ES 550. [root@halfway greg]# lsusb | egrep -i power Bus 001 Device 002: ID 051d:0002 American Power Conversion Uninterruptible Power Supply [root@halfway greg]# lspcidrake -v | egrep -i apc usbhid : APC|Back-UPS ES 550 FW:843.K2 .D USB FW:K2 [Human Interface Device|No Subclass|None] (vendor:051d device:0002) [root@halfway greg]# lsmod | grep usb usbhid 47136 2 hid 65280 1 usbhid usblp 12548 0 usbcore 185648 7 usbhid,usblp,ehci_hcd,uhci_hcd I would suggest trying the kernel-linus that K Bergen suggested.
  18. wxCam, do we have it?

    You can file an enhancement request bug report at: https://qa.mandriva.com/ However it may not receive any results with Mandriva's current dev status.
  19. Mageia Mailing-Lists Forum Gateway

    I've been on the Mageia ML since 9-19-10 and I read your comments when you announced this setup. However you said “please be gentle... :) this forum is running on a relatively low power rented virtual serverâ€, so that's why I never posted it here. Thanks for all the work you've put into this bidirectional gateway ML forum test, it works very well.
  20. I cannot change the default login screen

    If you don't like gdm-2.30 from the official/main repo... you can still use the gdm-220-2.20.10-10mdv2010.1 and gdm-220-themes-0.2-8mdv2010.1 rpm packages from the official/2010.1/media/contrib/release repo.
  21. How to get widescreen resolutions?

    Please post the output of egrep 1600x900 /var/log/Xorg.0.log Using google, I haven't found anyone that has successfully used a 1600x900 resolution with the openchrome driver at this time.
  22. I'm not sure why you're having this problem and I'm not. However I've found an old kde bug report with some new comments in it here: bug #135726 In comment #6 it says “Does it work when disabling automatic cddb lookup in audiocd?â€. So I would suggest that you try unchecking the 'Perform CDDB lookup automatically' box in the CD configuration section. Does that help?
  23. KaudioCreater is working for me. Make sure you have the lame and liblame packages installed from the PLF repos, and the libmad package installed from the official repos. Then open KaudioCreater and go to > settings > Configure KaudioCreater > encoder > and select 'MP3 Lame Standard' as the default encoder.
  24. How to get widescreen resolutions?

    Mandriva 2007.0 did have an openchrome driver available in the repos. It's still available here: x11-driver-video-openchrome- Here's an old bug report on it with a fix: bug #27167
