  1. Finally got 2009 installed- the free DVD would only install in text mode. Thanks for the help, everyone! Hope I don't have to do this with 2009.1!
  2. Greg2, I tried your suggestion and it doesn't work. I'm still getting the text screen and "input not supported". I have to press the power button to get out of the install. I'm still trying to figure out why the install screen boots up at 800x600 and as soon as I press enter it goes into a text screen and hangs with "input not supported".
  3. The One edition that worked was the 2009 one. I also tried installing from the 2009 dual-arch cd- same problem as the free dvd, I forgot the mention that I have a an Acer W191W widescreen monitor- native resolution 1440x900.
  4. I recently bought a new pc: 2 GHz Intel Celeron processor 440 1 GB of DDR2 system memory 160 GB hard drive Intel 950 integrated video. It runs 2008.1 fine. I thought I would try 2009 on it. The Free DVD boots into the logon screen at 800x600. When I press enter to install- it goes into text mode. And then it eventually displays the message "Input not supported". I looked at the kernel messages and the installation is trying to install the desktop586 kernel. It also says that splash failed. I also downloaded the One edition and it has no problem booting or installing.
  5. It hung indefinately. I tried various things-the last thing I tried was to boot from the linux-nonfb kernel instead of the default one. I was shocked that everything worked!!! I have no idea why linux-nonfb worked and not the default one.
  6. This is strange- I just tried the live cd and had no trouble connecting.
  7. After booting Mandriva 2009 Free, my computer hangs after the message: Determining IP Information for eth0. This is a wired nic- realtek RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+. I don't have any problems connecting with it in 2008 Spring Free.
  8. Opera 9.52 has been released: ftp://ftp.opera.com/pub/opera/linux/952/final/en/
  9. Opera 9.50 final has been released! http://www.opera.com/download/
  10. Flash 9.0.115 won't work in Opera 9.26- you have to get 9.0.48. I've heard that it does work in the 9.50 beta. By the way- Flash 9.0.115 also doesn't work with the Konqueror web browser!
  11. Opera 9.26 final has been released. ftp://ftp.opera.com/pub/opera/linux/926/final/en/i386/ [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  12. Has anyone else had a problem running gedit under 2008.0 KDE? It loads fine but crashes when I select the menus with either mouse or keyboard! Amule crashes when I download servers. Can anyone help?
  13. So I had to reinstall mandriva 2007.1. The ftp installation no longer works- after http proxy, http proxy port- it exits abnormally with a signal 11. The logs says: tulip_stop_rxtx () failed. I've never had any problems with the ftp installation. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  14. Are these the spring cds? http://linuxcentral.com/catalog/index.php3...d=C1C7SlKv5P9CS
