  1. Hi John

    Please post your audio section here.

  2. 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:

  3. 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


  4. 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.

  5. This is from the cooker ML yesterday:

    Subject: Mandriva Application Manager





    Hi folks!

    Today we have posted the first publicly available screencast of the new

    Mandriva Application Manager (MAM). It shows the basic look& feel.

    There are many features to come and improvements to do.

    Soon we are are going to deliver the first alpha (at least a tech

    preview) too.

    I like it! :thumbs:

  6. I tried removing ohci-hcd and ehci-hcd, then nothing worked on the usb ports.


    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

    [root@halfway greg]# lspcidrake -v | egrep -i apc

    [root@halfway greg]# lsmod | grep usb

    usbcore               185648  7 usbhid,usblp,ehci_hcd,uhci_hcd

    I would suggest trying the kernel-linus that K Bergen suggested.

  7. 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. :thumbs:
