  1. Firefox 3.0.11 fixes several issues found in Firefox 3.0.10: mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities It's available here: firefox/3.0.11
  2. Have you updated exaile since Monday? Revision: 383805 Patch2: fix support for pyinotify It would be exaile-0.3.0-0.a2.4mdv2009.1 It's working fine for me, and I can't reproduce your problem.
  3. If you're using Gnome, just install the gksu package. You shouldn't have to use sudo, unless you want to.
  4. Have you installed the configure-thinkpad package from the repos? It has settings for hibernate, standby, and suspend.
  5. Try the old symlink trick ln -s /usr/lib/libexpat.so.1.5.2 /usr/lib/libexpat.so.0
  6. That was changed in the 2009.1 release. The quote is from here: 2009.1_Notes#Icewm
  7. The Gnome system sounds are in the gnome-audio package. That package installs them to ‎/usr/share/sounds. I don't have Gnome installed to check this, but I think if you go to System > Preferences > Sound, and click on the 'Sounds' tab, you should be able to change these sounds with the gui.

    It has been a long time since I've used Mandrake 9.2, but I would suggest that you open your gui network interface section and remove (delete) your current network config. Then create a new network config with your pcmcia card, and set the config to (I'm not sure about these 'check box' names, but they 'should' be similar) 'do not start at boot' and 'user managed' in the gui check boxes. This should allow you to start and stop the network after the boot without any problems. I hope that makes sense to you. :) I also agree with scarecrow about using Puppy Linux. I've had Puppy working on some very old systems.

    If stopping the network first doesn't work for you, you can use cardctl. In a terminal (as root) do cardctl ident this should give you the socket #. Now use the socket # (I will use 0 for this example) and do cardctl suspend 0 now you should be able to shutdown your system, without using the reset button.
  10. @mykee- I'm glad you have it sorted out. Welcome aboard! :)

    The 2009.1 release notes also show how to enable the Ctrl+Alt+backspace shortcut. Here: 2009.1_Notes#X.org_7.4 However, since the OP needed this info about 5 months ago... we may be too late.
  12. It works for me.

  13. You can install the amrnb, amrwb, and the sox packages from the PLF repos and use the cli to convert to wav files. Or you can download the mmc-lin.tar.gz from here: MobileMediaConverter Then extract it to your ~/home directory, cd MobileMediaConverter, then do ./MobileMediaConverter, then convert your AMR files to 'almost' anything you want... OGGs work great for me.
  14. If you're using Mandriva 2009.1, you can disable ipv6 with the gui. From here: 2009.1_Errata#Slow_or_no_internet_response Disabling the ipv6 option will now give you this line in /etc/modprobe.conf [greg@halfway ~]$ cat /etc/modprobe.conf | grep -i ipv6 options ipv6 disable=1
  15. Opera 10 beta1 with Opera turbo has been released. More info and downloads are here: my.opera.com/community/blog/opera-10-beta-1 I've installed the opera-10.00-b1.gcc4-qt4.i386.rpm from here: opera/linux/1000b1/beta1/en/ on my Mandriva 2009.1 KDE 4.2.2 system, and it's working great! Yes, that's correct, KDE 4.2.2... :)
  16. I agree with dexter, you shouldn't be building packages as root, and I won't waste any of my time debating that issue. I would suggest that you follow these instructions to set up a special build tree: Development/Howto/RPM I've built you (or anyone else that needs it) an fslint rpm. :) I've made it, installed it, and tested it on a Mandriva 2009.1 system.

  17. Here's one: ftp://ftp.sunet.se//pub/Linux/distributio...x/official/9.2/
  18. If you're using the x11-driver-video-fglrx, as I've noted in my previous post, you can run fgl_glxgears
  19. I've moved some topics today and I'll be moving more tomorrow. Since spinynorman has made this announcement, I didn't think it was necessary to treat moving all of these topics as we normally would. So please note that I'm only leaving a few links in the source forums and a few 'moved by Greg' edits where I thought that there may be some confusion, or were recent topics. So if you've lost a topic, please look here. :)
  20. It's not your graphics card or the driver. Are you using compiz or another 3D desktop?
  21. I agree with daniewicz, I don't believe that this is only a driver problem. The output you've posted looks ok. Would you please post (at least three lines) the output of glxgears
  22. Here's a few things to help you understand this: All of this info and more from here:http://projects.gnome.org/gconf/ Welcome aboard! :)
  23. Make sure you have the mesa and mesa-demos packages installed from the official Mandriva repos. Then please post the output of glxinfo | grep -E -i 'rendering|OpenGL|server glx|client glx'
  24. OK, I'm guessing that you're not happy with my suggestions, so I've created a fix for you. Do this [greg@apus ~]$ rpm -qa | grep -i synaptics x11-driver-input-synaptics-0.15.2-1mdv2009.0 gsynaptics-0.9.14-3.1mdv2009.0 remove everything that isn't on that list, and install only what I have. Make sure your xorg.conf is not modified with your edits. Reboot the system, and in a terminal (as user) do gsynaptics uncheck the 'Enable Tapping' button. Now you have no touchpad tapping input at all. If you like this you could add it to you menu with your menu editor, and turn it on or off at will.
  25. Have you looked in /var/log/Xorg.0.log for any clues as to what is rewriting xorg.conf?
