  1. But to use all of your RAM you are best off with 64bit. i have been using 64bit versions of distro's for about 3yrs now and I have hardly any problem, after initial setup. Only software that causes concern is flash and win32 codecs but these have since been made even easier with the use of wrappers etc. You can always just install the 32bit version of something as AMD64 can run 32bit and 64bit concurrently.
  2. The best way to troubleshoot that one is to install using the urpmi on the command line, that way you may get more info back. alternatively, you can try launching MCC from a terminal and check back it installs for any verbose output that may help.
  3. Ahhh just found (through a ps ax | grep rpm) that msec was running an rmpv on a whole HEAP of packages. Took awhile and i guess thats what 'blocked' my rpm -i Never had that problem before...
  4. Really odd problem and nothing has shown up in logs. It happened today, i went to usromi mutt, i noticed it was taking forever on the "installing <package name>...." part. I mean it had been sitting there for about 10-15mins. So i killed it (CTRL+C) and tried again, same result. Tried other packages, same result. They download, but wont install. Tried just 'rpm' using the urpmi cache and same thing. I am unable to install anything. I have no idea where to begin troubleshooting this one. Thanx for reading.
  5. Yeah same problem here too. Right pain that one is.
  6. For along time now and 1-2 mandrake release updrages i have entries in my home dir corresponding with my Kmenu entries. I delete the folders and they just reappear after a reboot. Anyone have this weird "phenomenom" ??
  7. Yeah i cant make Win + E open Konqueror; khotkeys doesnt seem to accept Win + anything else. If you have a multimedia keyboard, just assign one of its many keys to openning Konqueror.
  8. Yeah same shutdown problem here 10.2 upgraded from 10.1 PS kopete doesnt work, but does it i rename ~/.kde deleted every instance of kopete configs and even did a grep for kopete in ~/.kde and deleted references to it but no difference; same URL login to server error GUI opens but cant do anything with it.
  9. I found the fix to my knotes problem. I renamed/moved ~/.kde/share/config/kresources/notes In case others have the same problem.
  10. I originally tried Slakware on my new (2nd hand) laptop (Compaq Armada M700). Most things worked except for my USB MP3 layer and a few other little things. It did however work flawlessly with the Fn+F4 press to enable VGA output display. This could be done while running at any time. Since putting on Mdk2005LE i have lost thia ability. Admittedly everyting else works great just not the Fn+F4 combo. Right now it just makes the screen flicked (like on Slack) but no picture displayed. Any ideas ? Need a 2.4 Kernel for Mdk2005LE ??
  11. Thanx alot for all your work Thacs :)

  13. Oh i thought that update menu command was just for the Kmenu. Oh welll, i wiped it clean from my laptop and installed Mdk LE2005 with default KDE3.3.3.2 I'll get a list of RPM's off my Desktop for ya though...
  14. So anyone try the CD upgrade option ?? I am probably going to go ahead with that. Any pointers ?? (the upgrade from 10.0 to 10.1 went flawlessly)
  15. I did a fresh install of LE2005 onto my laptop. I only choose WM and didnt select KDE at all. Got thacs repositorie set up and proceeded to follow the installation order mentioned on page previous. Everything seemed to work, except Konqueror had double menus, Ksysguard still didnt work, kmix didnt have a File menu and Umbrello didnt have a File menu (which makes it real tough)
  16. Ok updated EVERYTHING to the newer kde 3.4 packages (380MB's later) and no diff I renamed the ~/.kde folder and booted in and WOW! that ~/.kde holds alot of info, cause everything looked so different. So i ploughed into the ~/.kde folder seeng if i could the problem and hopefully just renamed that specific suspect. Well i found ~/kde/share/apps/knotes and kmail renamed them and tried again, but still no go. So....what other confgs in ~/.kde could effect things like knotes and kontact ???
  17. Thanx Thacs I'll give that a shot when i get home tonight and let you know. :)
  18. I ran strace on it and here's the last part getsockopt(3, SOL_SOCKET, SO_PEERCRED, ">}\0\0\365\1\0\0\365\1\0\0", [12]) = 0 getuid32() = 501 write(3, "\1\2\1\0I\0\0\0\0\0\0\0", 12) = 12 write(3, "\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\vDCOPServer\0\0\0\0\1\0\0\0\0\25regi"..., 53) = 53 write(3, "\0\0\0\20anonymous-11092\0", 20) = 20 read(3, "\2\3\0\0028\0\0\0", 8) = 8 read(3, "\321\3\0\0", 4) = 4 read(3, "\0\0\0\vDCOPServer\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\tQCString\0"..., 56) = 56 write(3, "\1\2\1\0]\0\0\0\321\3\0\0", 12) = 12 write(3, "\0\0\0\20anonymous-11092\0\0\0\0\vDCOPServ"..., 82) = 82 write(3, "\0\0\0\7knotes\0", 11) = 11 read(3, "\2\3\0\0024\0\0\0", 8) = 8 read(3, "\321\3\0\0", 4) = 4 read(3, "\0\0\0\vDCOPServer\0\0\0\0\20anonymous-110"..., 52) = 52 write(3, "\1\2\1\0X\0\0\0\2\0\0\0", 12) = 12 write(3, "\0\0\0\20anonymous-11092\0\0\0\0\7knotes\0\0"..., 64) = 64 write(3, "\0\0\0\f/home/david\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0", 24) = 24 read(3, "\2\5\0\2#\0\0\0", 8) = 8 read(3, "\2\0\0\0", 4) = 4 read(3, "\0\0\0\7knotes\0\0\0\0\20anonymous-11092\0\0"..., 35) = 35 read(3, knotes: WARNING: Cannot execute call to system.login: empty server URL ???
  19. This is the error i get if it means anything knotes: WARNING: Cannot execute call to system.login: empty server URL
  20. updated my kdepim series (and libs) to th new kmail now works (but i dont use it) knotes (really use alot) and kaddressbook dont. Havent teated the rest.
  21. Ahhh i found it Under 10.1 of course!! lol https://www.mandrakeclub.com/user.php?op=myBittorrent
  22. Am i going blind !?? The link for 2k5 is the 10.2.rc2 torrent ??? This link here http://qa.mandrakesoft.com/torrent/Mandrak...10.2rc2.torrent ??? I started downloading that last night, i guess i better stop and start again if it got updated in that time.
  23. Thacs Do you ever sleep man ?? :) Cheers!!! PS what is the best procedure to update currently instaled KDE Thacs packages on our system ?? And do these packages contain bug fixes from aforementioned problem or jus tupdates or ??? Thanx alot Thacs!!!
  24. I have just noticed the very same problem, and I use ksysguard on a pretty regular basis, so that sucks. It can be very hard to remember the EXACT name and spelling of every proces I could concievably want to shut down, but it's all right there in kde sysguard. Any suggestions would be welcome of course. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> I am using the Gnome System Monitor, works the same.
  25. The only problem i have no is Ksysguard cant "connect to localhost" and my child panel i have up the right of my screen keeps losing icon links i add to it all the time ?!?!
