  1. Don't worry about this failure message. I have the same message "Bringing up eth0 interface ------ failed" but I connect normally to Internet (pc - router - adsl modem)
  2. I had the same error message "Bringing up eth0 interface : failed" at boot but it doesn't affect my connection (adsl via router). While reading your post I suppose that you have no problem with the NIC and you use a cable connection. I suggest you use Mandrake Control Center (MCC) to first remove your current connection and try to reestablish a new connection : - System - Configuration - Configure your computer - Network & Internet - Remove a connection then - New connection - Choose "Cable connection" and go through the procedure with Startic IP as you nomally do (In the ifconfig message I didn't see your IP address, there could be a problem with your DHCP)
  3. Happy to see it really helped you. Cheers
  4. For shutdown : System - Configuration - Configure your desktop - System - Login Manager - Administrator Mode (Enter root's password) - Shutdown - Allow Shutdown : Local : Everyone. I have no idea about microcode. You should put the diskette on the floppy then right click on the icon and choose open.
  5. I've installed Firefox and Thunderbird as a nomal user (not as root) as follows : Download fifrefox and thunderbird from the Mozilla site to /home/dmkh (dmkh is my nomal user account) Untar the file (Right click on the file - Action - Extract here) Open a terminal and change to the newly created (/home/dmkh/firefox-install) and run the command ./firefox-installer as normal user). Exit the terminal To complete the installation, come back to the directory /home/dmkh/firefox-install. There I can see a file named "firefox" (without quotes). Double click on this file to set up Firefox for the first time. From now on, this same file "firefox" will be the launcher of firefox. The procedure is the same for thunderbird. If you want to see them on the menu you must add them manually (Right click on the Yellow Start - Edit Menu ...). Don't forget to save your modification after having edited the menu.
  6. For the shutdown option, you can try this if you use KDE : Control Center - System Administration - Login Manager (Choose Administrator Mode - Enter the root's password) - Under the tab Shutdown : - Allow Shutdown - Local - Choose Everybody - LILO : check the box Show boot options I'm not under MDK right now so I can not say for sure, but you could give it a try.

    Kopete and Yahoo!

    a13x is correct but you can install kopete without MCC : After updating your database with the command "updatedb" you can install kopete by just typing "urpmi kopete". After that, you may have to reboot your PC. (Note : you have to do all that under the konsole and as root).

    Kopete and Yahoo!

    The latest version is 0.8.4. You can check your version in About Kopete section. The post of devries told you how to add a new source to your package manager then to install the package Kopete from this source to your system. For that, you should process as follows : 1. Open a terminal 2. Log in as root by typing "su" (without quotes) then entering the root password 3. Type this line "urpmi.addmedia thacs.rpms http://rpm.nyvalls.se/10.0/RPMS with hdlist.cz" (without quote) and press Enter to add this new source. 4. After this source being added, always as root, you can type "urpmi kopete" (without quote) to install kopete. After that you can type "updatedb" to update your database. I've tried this package and it works well. Good luck

    cd burner won't burn!

    Let's verify your setting : Launch k3b (ignore the message about cdrdao and cdrecord) - Open k3b configure (not k3b setup) - Click on "Device" to see if your burner is correctly detected by k3b - Then click on "Programs" to see if cdrdao & cdrecord are there and marked with green "V". If not, close k3b. Open a terminal, log in as *root* and launch k3b then try to burn a CD. If it works your issue is surely a permission one. If it doesn't work it should be a problem of scsi emulation. Get us updated.
  11. I'm not a big help for you because I've always done the partitioning under DOS with Partition Magic 7.0 on floppy. I just want to tell you not to forget to backup your data, make an image of your XP system (with Ghost for example) and defrag your hard disk before going ahead with your partionning. In general, to partition a hard disk you have first to resize the hard disk (Operations - Resize) to reduce the disk part used by XP. Then on the free part of the HDD you've just obtained, you'll create new partitions (Operations - Create). The number of partitions depend on how you'll install MDK, but at least you should have two partitions, one for / and the other for swap. Usually I don't format my newly created partitions that I will format during the installation of MDK. Before installing MDK, I suggest you take a look at your BIOS to first enable LBA mode of your hard disk and take note of the geometry values of your hard disk CHS (cylinders, heads, sectors). When you install MDK, in the welcome screen, you should press F1 and at the command prompt type "linux hda=number of cylinders,number of heads,number of sectors" (replace theses numbers by the values you've noted and I suppose that you install XP and MDK in the your first master hard disk). This tip I've learned on another forum is aimed at preventing the destruction of the partition table of the hard disk. That's what I've done to install MDK 10 in dual boot with Win 98. Good luck

    Kopete and Yahoo!

    Installing Gaim is simple : 1. Install the package provided in your CD : - Control Center - Software Install (enter your root password) - Type "gaim" - Choose the package (it seems to be the 0.79 version). Exit affer installing the original version. 2. Go to gaim site and download the package for MDK 10 somewhere on your computer (eg. /home/sue/gaim) http://gaim.sourceforge.net/downloads.php The newiest version for MDK 10.0 is gaim-0.81-0mdk10.0.i586.rpm 3. Open a terminal and log in as root $ su (enter your root password) 4. Change to the directory of your newly downloaded package (/home/sue/gaim in this example) by typing # cd /home/sue/gaim 5. Update gaim by typing # rpm -Uvh gaim-0.81-0mdk10.0.i586.rpm # updatedb # update-menus -v 6. Exit the terminal by typing two time "exit" Hope this helps Oh, sorry. Do you mean you could not download files from Internet ?

    I don't know how to help you but I had the same problem as yours when I accidently deleted my ym friends group. Even after reinstalling kopete, they didn't reappear so I had add them back manually. Try GAIM, it works well and installing GAIM is simple. If you have GAIM installed already, just update it with the RPM available on their site. rpm -Uvh "new package name" Hope this helps

    cd burner won't burn!

    Yes, it is a permission issue that I've had as well. You could do what illogic-al said. 1. Check to know you belong to which group or add you to a group, eg. "cdwriter" (Control Center - Configure Your Computer - System - Users & Groups) 2. Open k3b and run k3bsetup 3. In the box "Burning group' (the first box at the top of the window) type the name of the group to which you belong, eg. "cdwriter" 4. Click apply button and OK. K3B should work. Hope this helps
  15. You're a very very bad son for not offering to your dad a burner so that he coudd backup his data. Very bad son, indeed :-)
