  1. I ran this and my settings seemed correct. Then, I clicked "Test" and I saw the colored background fine. However, when I logout and reboot, I still get the same problem.
  2. When I boot into Mandrake 10, it does not boot all the way into KDE as it used to. Instead, I get a blue background for 3 quadrants of the monitor and the bottom right quadrant is a command prompt. I am able to enter commands into the command prompt, but I am unable to start KDE from here. I was even able to run Unreal Tournament from this command prompt and it worked fine, so I don't think it is a fundamental problem with my graphics card or monitor, etc. Has anyone seen this issue and/or have any advice for its resolution? thanks in advance!!

  3. Now that I got my NVIDIA GeForce 4 working, I was thinking about upgrading :D . I like play games such as Unreal Tournament, etc. I am wondering what are the best graphics cards for gaming on Linux. I am running Mandrake 10. thanks!!
  4. After I installed the NVIDIA driver from nvidia.com, it worked great. Thanks!!
  5. KDE was automatically starting during boot, but after I installed the NVIDIA driver, it now boots the text prompt. So I have to login and then run KDE. How can I configure Mandrake 10 to automatically log me in and run KDE on the boot? thanks!!
  6. Hi, I have a Rio Cali mp3 player that I am trying to use with Mandrake 10. Does anyone know what software to use to do this? Is it supported, etc? thanks!!
  7. Hi, How can I install the kernel sources for Mandrake 10? thanks!!
  8. When I type "glxinfo | grep direct", I get the following errors (same as the original). [root@user-0ce2i57 games]# glxinfo | grep direct Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0". Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0". Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0". Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0". Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0". Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0". Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
  9. I am using Mandrake 10, and I have not installed any drivers manually other than whatever was installed during installation of the OS. When I open up the Mandrake Control Center, it correctly identifies my card as a "NV17 GeForce4 MX 420". Do I need to install some other driver or something else? thanks!
  10. Hi, I get errors when running several games under Linux. I can run many of the simple games such as Frozen Bubble and LBreakOut, but I want to run some of the more 3d ones. Here is the problem I am getting (most recently, when running "BZFlag"). Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0" Any ideas? thanks, Max
  11. Thanks for the info. I was hoping to find some free software that could do it. I will give this post a little more time to see if there are other answers. If not, I will have to weight the cost of Parition Magic against reinstalling Linux. I guess my question is, if I reinstall Mandrake 10 and resize the partitions, will the reinstall overwrite my existing applications and data?
  12. I recently installed Mandrake 10 beside an XP installation to play around with it and get used to it. I now realize that I like it much better than XP and I would like to shrink the NTFS partition to make room for more space in Mandrake. What is the best tool to use for this? I tried parted, but it doesn't support NTFS. I originally shrank the partition using the Mandrake install, but I don't want to have to re-install and wipe out my applications and data. thanks!
  13. Hi, I'm in the market for a laptop that I would like to run solely Mandrake 10. I have typically bought computers from Dell in the past, but I had a problem with my current Dell and Linux where the SDLive! card was not supported. Plus, I'm not sure if I can buy a Dell with no OS preinstalled. I am looking for a new laptop, and not one from a Mom-and-pop type place that would use cheap parts (I've had a bad experience in the past with that). Any recommendations on where to find a quality laptop for Mandrake 10? thanks! [moved from Hardware by spinynorman]

    Disk 4?

    Perfect! I was unfamiliar with the Software Media Manager. It now downloads the packages instead of looking for disk 4. I wish this would have been the default. thanks! :D

    Disk 4?

    I configured urpmi as the website explained, but it still prompts to enter disk 4 for some software (e.g. "vcdimager"). urpmi can find arson OK and it presents the list of dependencies. However, I guess the dependencies (or arson itself) is on disk 4. thanks!
