  1. The search feature is still horribly broken and the "View My Posts" feature is gone. What is the status of the upgrade? Eric P. Sunnyvale, CA
  2. Hm. I found the icons for Kontact and KMail using menudrake but only the icon for Kontact appears after saving. (In fact - the entire Mail folder is gone after using menudrake!) There seems to be some discrepancies between menudrake and the K-Menu. Is that normal?
  3. One more question if I may: Where'd KMail go? I can't find it anywhere. :unsure:
  4. Many thanks, bvc! Is this a known-issue with 9.2?
  5. Hello, All: I've finally installed and successfully updted Mandrakelinux 9.2. (If ever there was an example of why users should read the errata this is it!!!) After updating the installed packages, however, my K-Menu is half-empty: e.g., MCC is gone, Konsole is gone, and Office is gone. I've installed and updated twice and this has happened both times. I've perused the KDE Help Center and learned about 'kappfinder' but that only recovered Office and a few miscellaneous items. What the @#$@! happened? <-- Funny looking little guy that more-or-less illustrates my frustration but I'm not really that mad. How can I restore all of the K-Menu icons (that were there before)?

  6. I had hoped to not resort to manual configuration but did anyway and the on-board ethernet works now. Thanks.
  7. FWIW: I've been looking around quite a bit and found a posting about a problem similar to mine (i.e., Mandrake wouldn't configure the wireless interface or the on-board interface). In his reply, Pzatch suggested turning off the on-board interface so I tried something along those lines: I removed the D-Link DWL-520 wireless adapter but it didn't make any difference: MCC still updates /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg- (instead of /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0).
  8. /sbin/ifup: configuration for eth0 not found. FWIW: There isn't a /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file The /etc/sysconfic/network file only contains 'NETWORKING=yes' :unsure:
  9. This is the crux of the the Internet: There's too much good information! I actually poked-around quite a bit before posting. I must have been driving too fast though. Thanks! Thanks again, VeeDub!
  10. FWIW: I'm able to manually configure the interface. :huh:
  11. Hello, All: I'm installing Mandrake 10.0 on an Intel i440GX server board and Mandrake won't configure the on-board ethernet interface (the Intel 82559 Fast Ethernet LAN chipset). The device registers in /proc/pci, (Bus 0, Device 14, IRQ 21) Mandrake Control Center 10...Connection Manager allows me to set 'start at boot' and 'DHCP' (though the settings seem to be go back to their original values after a reboot), and Hardware Manager correctly shows the device and recognizes that it needs the eepro100 kernel module. [*]/sbin/ifconfig shows the MAC address. ...but the interface won't start. Any ideas? Eric P. Sunnyvale, CA
  12. I bought a really cool USB wireless keyboard/mouse combo last week (from Surplus Computers ) but can't get X to recognize any the five mouse buttons (though the scroll-wheel is recognized). How can I configure X (XFree86-4.3-30mdk) to recognize the mouse buttons? Eric P. Sunnvale, CA
