      Mandriva Official Documentation

      Official documentation for extant versions of Mandriva can be found at doc.mandriva.com.   Documentation for the latest release may take some time to appear there. You can install all the manuals from the main repository if you have Mandriva installed - files are prefixed mandriva-doc.

      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

  1. I had a problem in which the Amarok tray icon was not showing up after upgrading to 2010.1, but this is fixed by launching "Service Manager" and manually starting "KDED Status Notifier watcher". This service is marked to be used, but whenever I log in, it shows up with status "not running." How can I force this service to run when I log in, so that Amarok works as expected?
  2. I cannot get the internal microphone to work on my Acer Aspire 1410. It does work in Windows 7, so I know the hardware is OK. I cannot get any recording in Mandriva 2010. I have opened kmix and ensured it is not muted, and I raised the mic and mic boost levels. I also twiddled the "front mic" vs "internal mic", but with no results. When the mic levels are high and the mic is not muted, I get soft white noise from the speakers. Muting the mic drops this out. This happens regardless of whether front or internal mic is selected, and regardless of whether "Capture" is checked or not. I don't know if this is significant. With front mic selected, when I playback my recording, I hear noise. With internal mic selected, when I playback I hear nothing at all. One other potentially interesting thing. I have shown all of my channels, and while there is a slider for "front mic", there is not one for "internal mic". Again, I don't know if this is significant. I would appreciate any tips and suggestions. I started by using Skype for testing the audio, but this was cumbersome, so now I'm using Sound Recorder. Kernel is 2.6.31.12-netbook-1mdv. Same thing happened with desktop kernel; tried to change in case it made a difference.
  3. On Mandriva 2010, using Eclipse and Sun's JVM, buttons do not behave correctly. If a button becomes enabled from a disabled state, then it cannot be clicked. I can still press enter to activate it, but that's obnoxious. Any known fixes?
  4. How to view security logs from notification widget

    Interactive Firewall I had a sysadmin look over it, and he said it was configured to log by default, it just wasn't. We'll see what happens with the new config next time I'm scanned.
  5. I was working yesterday and got a notification, via a widget in the panel, that I was being portscanned. I ignored it at the time, but now I want to go back and see the logs and decide whether to whitelist or blacklist the machine. Where can I find these logs, or how can I bring that widget back up? In the past, it has only shown up when there's an alert, but then it disappears. I'm running Mandriva 2009.1.
  6. Focus follows/under mouse does not work

    In Mandriva 2009.0, no matter what focus policy I choose, I get "click to focus" behavior. That is, no matter whether I choose "focus follows mouse", "focus under mouse", or "focus strictly under mouse", I get the "click to focus" behavior. I have tried two different mice, one USB and one PS/2, with no change. Customizing the focus behavior worked on this same hardware in 2008.1 and earlier. I have another 2009.0 machine that does not have this problem. To try to fix this, I booted to a console and wiped out my .kde and .kde4 folders. Restarting in KDE then did not change this problem. I don't know what to try next. Any suggestions?
  7. Streaming radio on Mandriva 2009

    For the past several releases, I have used amarok to listen to streaming Internet radio. In Mandriva 2009, I can still open a stream using Amarok, but now it stops after each individual track, rather than continuing to the next one. I'm listening to rainwave.cc -- here's a URL to test: http://stream.rainwave.cc:8000/stream.ogg I tried out some other players: totem (Movie Player) will play for a while and then crash kmplayer works fine, but I would rather use Amarok, partially due to OSD support. Any tips?
  8. I love emacs, but the fonts look horrible. Does anyone know if there's an easy way to get emacs to use fonts that look as nice as, say, kwrite? I found a link describing how to build emacs with gtk support for ubuntu, but I'd like something for KDE4 and Mandriva 2009: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=126023. Any tips? EDIT: I failed to mention that I'm using xemacs. "Regular" emacs uses nice fonts, but I prefer using xemacs since I can easily resize the window to the size I prefer. Maybe a workaround is to make emacs behave more like xemacs, since emacs fonts are readable. [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  9. 2009 on an nvidia8800, cannot load video driver

    Inspired by this question, I tinkered with my cables. I had been connecting with a DSUB cable but to the monitor's and video card's DVI slots via some adapters that came with my video card. I borrowed a proper DVI cable (i.e. DSUB-to-DVI adapters), and voila! Now I have my proper resolution as well as the right edid data. What a silly thing to be wrong. I don't know why the type of cable or adapter would bork the EDID data, but that seems to be what happened. Thanks to everyone who put their heads together on this!

  11. 2009 on an nvidia8800, cannot load video driver

    Unfortunately, this doesn't change the behavior. I'm still stuck with 1024x768 max, and the X logs still say that there are no valid modes for 1680x1050 on down to 1024x768, as before. The only difference in the log is that it no longer dumps the EDID data.
  12. 2009 on an nvidia8800, cannot load video driver

    177.70, if I recall correctly.
  13. 2009 on an nvidia8800, cannot load video driver

    It seems the problem is deeper than the modelines. I tinkered with this for a while until I remembered that my wife has the same monitor and is running 1680x1050. D'oh. I copied her xorg.conf file, only to see that it is identical to mine. This file works fine on 2008.0 and 2008.1, but it fails on 2009.

  15. 2009 on an nvidia8800, cannot load video driver

    Sure enough, that worked... mostly. I cannot get a resolution about 1024x768. I am using a 22" Westinghouse monitor, and I specify it as a Generic Flat Panel 1680x1050. However, it still comes up 1024x768 and only gives me options up to that resolution through krandr. When I check the X log file, it says that the nvidia driver cannot find compatible modelines for all my resolutions above 1024x768. I tried commenting out all the modelines, and that gave the same results. Any tips? I can post my xorg.conf on next reboot, if that might help, but it's simply the XFdrake generated one -- no customizations.
