  1. is thinking of practicing Psychiatry

  2. You can change the skin in the drop down box at the bottom left of this page, or any page. It has IP.Board, IP.Board Lo-Fi, and MUB.

    You can still use konqueror for your file manager instead of dolphin.
  4. Did you run the DAG213 to install the update patch? I've found that you also need to copy all sixteen .VID files from ~/DOS/DFCD/DAGGER/ARENA2 to ~/DOS/DAGGER/ARENA2. Then open your ~/DOS/DAGGER/Z.CFG file with a text editor and change the line: pathcd d:\dagger\arena2\ to pathcd c:\dagger\arena2\ now you will not have to mount DCFD as a CD every time you start the game. This will also fix the wrong CD error you're having. Then you should create a dosbox.conf file, if you haven't already done so. Open the configfile and change the line: memsize=16 to memsize=32 Now you can start the game with: mount c ~/DOS -freesize 1000 c: cd dagger fall z.cfg Enjoy the game! :)
  5. We're very late this month. :D Here's my KDE 4.2.2 desktop, and that's me in another Daggerfall funeral:
  6. Bethesda Softworks has released 'The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall' as a free download. The release announcement is here: Bethesda Blog The download is here: elderscrolls.com/downloads Please note that you will need to install and run the DOSBox emulator to play the game. You can download the installation instructions and the instructions for using dosbox to play the game on the download page.
  7. You have to wrap your strings in wxT() or _() to make them compile properly in Unicode builds. So edit all your strings like this: function("some string"); to function(wxT("some string")); More info here: wxwidgets.org/WxString#Warnings
  8. You can force the audio codec to vorbis with ffmpeg -i video.mov -acodec vorbis -aq 60 video.ogg the -aq option is to set the audio quality of a VBR codec, with 0 being the lowest. So you may have to adjust that option to your needs.
  9. Here's a couple of things I would try if I was having this problem. Reduce the shared amount of RAM for your graphics chip to the next lower setting in the BIOS - if that's possible. That may reduce the GPU heat... if that's causing the problem. Compile and try using this laptop fan regulator: Dell laptop fan regulator to control the fan settings and allow you to start the fan at a lower temperature. Your 510m is listed as working with this dellfand daemon.
  10. It appears that you will have to force it with logrotate -vf /etc/logrotate.conf Do you have spamassassin installed?
  11. As root run logrotate -v /etc/logrotate.conf this should show you which config file is the problem.
  12. That's it. That could be three coin batteries or three capacitors to hold the CMOS data while you change the main battery.
  13. neddie, I don't see a real temperature reading here. How do you know that your laptop is running hotter than usual, except for the way it feels? Do you have anything installed to give you a reading e.g., ktemperature?
  14. There's already a package in cooker/main/testing, so there's a good 'possibility' we may see it in 2009.1.
  15. Thanks David for posting this here. I've edited your post to include the complete public statement, because I thought that all the information should be available here for our members to read. I hope that's OK with you and Wobo.
  16. Please open a terminal and post the output of cat /etc/fstab and (as root) fdisk -l
  17. You can't mount sg0 or sg1, and your removable disk is probably seen by your '2009 kernel' as a scsi generic sg2 type 0. You can't mount sg2 either. I would suggest that you make a /media/disk directory, then (as root) try mounting /dev/sdb1 to /media/disk. Unless your removable disk has no partition, then it would be /dev/sdb to /media/disk.
  18. Using Mandriva it would be: cat /etc/group
  19. You're welcome, Pádraig. Thanks for all of your work on this program, I use it with my music and photo files.
  20. Firefox 3.0.11 is now available for both Mandriva 2009.0 and 2009.1 in main updates.
  21. You should also have these installed: gstreamer0.10-decoders-1-3mdv2009.1 gstreamer0.10-decoders-audio-1-3mdv2009.1 gstreamer0.10-plugins-good-0.10.14-1mdv2009.1 gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-0.10.11-3plf2009.1 gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-0.10.11-1plf2009.1 gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg-0.10.7-1mdv2009.1 gstreamer0.10-mpeg-0.10.11-1plf2009.1 gstreamer0.10-lame-0.10.11-1plf2009.1 and probably several others I haven't listed.
  22. You're correct, I missed that in the changelog for 2.1.17
  23. Most of the time that is true with complex apps. Yes, so these depends need to be added as 'Requires:' in an rpm, or alternatively (but not officially Mandriva approved) be placed in the readme.txt, or built into the script that would install them. Some python apps use a python or shell script to install the program from an extracted archive instead of an rpm. python install.py or sh install.sh Tunapie is a good example of this method to take a look at: tunapie.sourceforge.net This tunapie program hasn't been touched since Sept. 2007, but it still works with Python 2.6.1 on Mandriva 2009.1.
  24. The exaile src rpm would be an excellent example to take a look at. Exaile also uses pygtk2.0 and pygtk2.0-libglade, you can see how that works in the exaile.spec file.
  25. I agree with both of you. @ saparonia- What is the name and model # of your motherboard?
