    Exactly the same experiences here. My MSI-laptop (with NVIDIA on board) needed a fresh install to Mageia 6, because re-partitioning was needed in my case. The older desktop-machine went smoothly through the upgrade-procedure from Mageia 5. My brothers' laptop i upgraded remotely through a SSL-connection, and also that was no issue. Now i have Cauldron in VirtualBox, besides openSUSE-Leap and openSUSE-Tumbleed VM's. All of them up-to-date. Though, it must be said, i had to reinstall Cauldron one more time, after one update-session went miserably wrong when systemd-update hanged and frooze the virtual machine. After reboot i was left with only a grub-prompt. I also fiddled around with the other desktop-environments, and must say, was pleasantly surprised by XFCE, very neat.
  2. But, by the way, in between we created the longest thread for years. :lol2:/>
  3. Very nice offering grendal, but thanks no. LibreOffice is suiting fine and more.
  4. Sorry, no grendal, no experienced user in that scope. Know and used Crossover years ago, but even don't remember for what reason. And i am a neither a gamer, though i like to try, getting planes into the skies with X-Plane on the Steam-platform.

    You were absolutely right John: http://blog.mageia.org/en/2015/06/07/mageia-servers-are-down/ Bad timing as amid the final magic in the making of Mageia 5. But gladly everything is going smooth again.
  8. Did you try to get help in the Mageia-forum? Mostly people are helped rather soon.
  9. And......the information of John and Ian combined. could lead to one of the Mageia-Live-CD's (also suitable for installation): https://www.mageia.org/en/downloads/ Have fun!!!! :)
  10. Found after a simple Google-search: http://www.tecmint.com/install-firefox-in-rhelcentos-6-3-fedora-17-16/ But,.......RHEL6!
  11. Sorry, don't use RHEL myself unfortunately. But YUM seems to be your best friend, where it concerns installing/updating software: https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Deployment_Guide/ch-yum.html Best of luck! :)
  12. Hi Jadidi, Why don't you use the RHEL-provided Firefox-package? This to make sure, you get the right packages pulled in.

    Sorry John, i can't help you out. Ever since my first Linux-days i used KMail, until some years ago, when problems started. Also spend many hours, getting everything to work. In the end i converted everything to Thunderbird, which is now the standard mail-client in the house. All the best ;) BTW: found this link, hope it gives you some hints: http://en.pardus-wiki.org/HOWTO:Transferring_email_messages_and_account_%28receiving%29_settings_from_KMail_KDE_4.6_%28Pardus%29_to_Kmail2_KDE_4.8_%28Mageia%29
  14. Congratulations Dude67, great you have this solved. Thanks for the big beer!!!
  15. Okay, another place for PulseAudio preferences: paprefs Don't know it helps you out, but i want to be sure you know about it's existence.
  16. MCC -> Hardware -> Sound Configuration -> Enable PulseAudio
  17. When i visit: http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ i get: And have same information in about:plugins So don't understand what should be wrong here?
  18. Did you try finding solutions in the Flash-MAQeia?

    Thanks John. Downloaded the RC myself this afternoon. Installation went smooth, and as far as i can oversee, another great product has been made by voluntary input.
  20. Suggestion: try starting your machine with a Live-CD, like: http://www.mageia.org/en/downloads/
  21. Following gives me full access to /home@partyoutside:
  22. Hello John, "Share drives and directories using NFS" gives you the ability to share drives and directories on the local machine (partyinside). "Access NFS shared drives and directories" gives you the ability to connect to shared drives/directories at a remote machine (partyoutside). So, to make it possible at partyinside, to connect to drives/directories at partyoutside, you have to open MCC at the latter, and choose "Share drives and directories using NFS", and define whatever you want to share. Back at partyinside you start MCC and choose "Access NFS shared drives and directories", click at "Search servers", takes a while and will return to you the defined share. Selecting this share gives you the opportunity to mount it, or whatever. Samba-packages are not needed, everything necessary will be asked for during setup.
  23. For me it is no problem mounting those through MCC:
  24. For me NFS always did and does the trick. Configurable through MCC->Network Sharing->Access/sharing NFS drives and directories.
