      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 admire your diligence. Thanks for documenting your efforts.
  2. Mageia's Distrowatch Ranking

    Your situation sounds similar to mine banjo.
  3. Mageia's Distrowatch Ranking

    As a longtime Mandriva user, I too hope the Mageia distrowatch climb is sustainable. Like you I have learned so much from the many great people here with the MUB. I am sad to see the decline in board activity.
  4. I'm loving Mandriva

    Thanks for the kind words. We are largely a group of users here but welcome!
  5. How to install Debian packages in mandriva

    As m10 said, you can use alien to convert between .deb files and .rpm files. As scarecrow said it is not advised. Do a google search to find more details on the linux package (program) alien.
  6. How do I defeat screen powersaver - asus p5k

    In /etc/X11/xorg.conf add the following: Section "ServerFlags" Option "suspend time" "0" Option "standby time" "0" Option "blank time" "0" Option "off time" "0" EndSection
  7. Flash Player in Mageia

    Have you tried Flash 11.1? 11.1 works fine for me but 11.2 has been troublesome.
  8. audiokonverter problem

    I have been using audiokonverter for some time with my Mandriva 2010.2 system. It recently is giving me problems. If I try to extract an ogg audio file from an mp4 video I get this error: # Now converting: /home/steve/Desktop/filename.mp4 # DISPLAYED REMAINING TIME MAY BE WRONG! Writing metadata... Error opening input file '/home/steve/Desktop//filename.ogg'. Done. Any suggestions?
  9. Mageia 2: Installed -Thoughts

    Thanks for the feedback. Longtime Mandriva user here thinking about Mageia.
  10. screensaver not working

    Do you have the DPMS option set in xorg.conf? Section "Device" Identifier "device1" VendorName "nVidia Corp." BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce2 DDR (generic)" Driver "nvidia" Option "DPMS" Option "NvAGP" "3" Option "IgnoreEDID" "1" Option "RenderAccel" "0" EndSection
  11. screensaver not working

    to make it permanent you could add the command to /etc/rc.d/rc.local I use xset dpms 0 360 420 this command disables DPMS standby and sets the DPMS suspend time to 360 seconds and the off time to 420 seconds
  12. Incorrect colour in Flash Player and LUNA error

    Yeah Ian!
  13. do LED-Backlit LCD monitors work in Linux?
