  2. Thanks tyme. I'll move it... Ian and Paul have been busy trying to fix the IPB MUB skin to work with the forum upgrade. :)
  3. It has been replaced in KDE 4.x with Okteta. You can also use Ghex.
  4. You need both the bootchart and bootchart-logger rpms installed. Then you will find the log in /var/log/bootchart.tgz Please read: http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Development/Howto/Boot_Time_Optimisation
  5. Or you could just open a terminal and do ps -e | egrep 'kdm|gdm|xdm' to see the display manager. :)
  6. Here's Arnaud Laprévote's (Mandriva’s CEO) comment on the official Mandriva blog: http://blog.mandriva.com/2010/05/12/about-mandrivas-current-situation/
  7. Which version of KDE are you using? If you're using KDE 4.4, it has been removed from the code and replaced by PowerDevil. Then you would have to be sure you have installed the plasma-krunner-powerdevil package. To use the PowerDevel, click Alt + F2 > settings, and check the PowerDevel box. Then click on your KDE cashew > unlock widgets > add widgets, and add the proper widget. Now you can set your display power.
  8. I don't have Gnome installed at this time, but with KDE you can go to Tools > System Tools > Configure your desktop > Computer Administration > Display > Power Control, then adjust your settings.
  9. If you can't read the French version... here's a google English translation of that link. Google translation
  10. That's very strange. Are you using a USB hub? As user (not root) please open a terminal and do /sbin/udevadm monitor --udev then insert the CF card, and post the output you receive.
  11. After you plug in the CF card, what's the output of dmesg | egrep -i 'usb|scsi' | tail -n 40
  12.

  13. At this point in the boot process you aren't even using the Linux kernel generic framebuffer support, but you are using the BIOS support. So IMHO, you have a 99% chance of a graphics card hardware issue. Can you pull a card from another older system to check it with?
  14. I've never had the $ signs, but I have had the dotted lines from a faulty nvidia graphics card. I would suggest that you try using the kernel boot parameter xdriver=vesa to get to a working gui DE. Then please post the output of lspcidrake -v | grep -i display so we can see what chipset you have and what driver it's using. FYI- the 71.xx legacy drivers are no longer provided with Mandriva 2010.0. Welcome to the USA, John – and Merry Christmas to you. :) Also, don't leave Maine without trying the lobster. :D
  15. Your DSL-2320B has both a firewall and a web-based GUI to modify your settings. Simply click on: then enter your user name and password or the admin and admin password. More info here: http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=554
  16. Firefox 3.5.6 has been released. Release notes and downloads are here: firefox/3.5.6/releasenotes Fixed security issues: known-vulnerabilities/firefox35.html#firefox3.5.6 Download a Firefox 3.5.6 that speaks your language: firefox/all.html
  17. It may cause some problems if you do any dev or rpm work on that system... however I'm not positive. :) I would suggest removing the symlink and try something like this [greg@halfway temp]$ l usr/ [greg@halfway temp]$ tar cf usr.tar.bz2 --use-compress-prog=pbzip2 usr/ [greg@halfway temp]$ l usr/ usr.tar.bz2 That was simply a small test with my single core cpu, and it worked ok. You would have to check it with your cpu.
  18. I had that problem with a P2- 333 mhz, using an older 2.6.xx kernel. I added pci=noacpi acpi=off as boot parameters, and it worked for me.
  19. We've had no desktop threads since July. :sad: So here's my KDE 4.3.2 desktop, and contrary to what some members here believe... it's very easy to configure and it does have a nice help center. :)
  20. You haven't told us what version of eclipse or jvm you're using. However it sounds like this bug: eclipse.org/bugs/bug#288909 So I would suggest that you try using this env var, and starting eclipse with GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true eclipse
  21. This attitude won't help you find a solution. Anyway, it looks like you may not have the rpm-build package installed. It's not installed as an alien dependency. Please see: bug #53450
  22. Just for the record and if anyone else is having this problem, you can also check your cpu with grep sse2 /proc/cpuinfo to see if the SSE2 flag is listed.
  23. That looks like the webkit bug. Please see: bug #55533 It's also in the errata: Epiphany (or other webkit based applications) crash a lot on non-SSE2 processors Are you using a non-SSE2 processor?
  24. According to your other thread about gnucash, you now have your software repos set up properly. So I would suggest that you install the task-printing-epson package from the repos, it will also install some dependencies including the proper gutenprint driver to be used with cups, and the appropriate PPD file for your printer. You may also want to install the mtink package. It's a nice configuration tool for epson inkjets that has a status monitor.
