  1. I admire your diligence. Thanks for documenting your efforts.
  2. Your situation sounds similar to mine banjo.
  3. 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. Thanks for the kind words. We are largely a group of users here but welcome!
  5. 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. 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. Have you tried Flash 11.1? 11.1 works fine for me but 11.2 has been troublesome.
  8. 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. Thanks for the feedback. Longtime Mandriva user here thinking about Mageia.
  10. 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. 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. Add this to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf Section "ServerFlags" Option "suspend time" "0" Option "standby time" "0" Option "blank time" "0" Option "off time" "0" EndSection
  13. It has been a few years, but I believe I used Clonezilla (http://clonezilla.org/) to do disk imaging in the past.
  14. Yes, this is possible I suppose. Do you have another IDE cable you could try?
  15. Are there more than one IDE slots you can plug into? May the slot you are trying is bad. Try plugging and unplugging several times into the IDE slot to ensure a good connection.
  16. I would clear the CMOS on the new motherboard to return it to its default settings, then retry. There will be a jumper on the board to achieve this (you will need the manual to locate the jumper). Alternately, remove the battery from the motherboard and wait 5 minutes with the power supply unplugged. Either way you have the motherboard returned to its default state which is where you want to start.
  17. If you want this to allow you to boot off of a DVD, then you need to keep the cable as you currently have them and instead change the boot sequence in the BIOS.
