      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. Hi, Can anyone suggest a good setup of server + database clustering. The involve are HTTP and PostgreSql. Im planning to setup an active passive environment, though Google would display lots of results on the topic, but maybe some one here has a good advice on which solution to go. here's the scenario: 2 centos server running httpd and postrgresql database and apps content is mounted via iscsi at storage MSA2312i. not a best practice though since apps like httpd runs along with postgres, but its already there and currently not yet separated. Really appreciate if someone can point me to a good solution or advice. thanks :)
  2. It's time for a survey!

    im using 2008.1, at work and home.. its good. :D
  3. hi all, has anyone ever tried, or successfully implemented an ftp server using any of the ff: (proftpd, pure-ftpd, vsftpd) to authenticate to AD 2003? Actually, on the these same box, I have dovecot installed and is now authenticating to AD 03 via pam module, the problem is with FTP service.. any idea? thanks.
  4. you may want to take a look at this.. at their site http://us3.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-Guide/
  5. More Specific Firewall Control?

    there are lots of free proxy or ip cloaking site out there that anyone can use to be allowed to access what they want to access, so blocking a specific IP source thou possible but still be able to bypass. On my experience, its better to setup a proxy server with squidguard, its another story though but just my suggestion. It can be administered via webmin, so you dont need to cli. try to google squid + squidguard + webmin. Then you should configure your gateway to do transparent proxy.
  6. using cpulimit

    Have anyone tried this piece of software? very cool. This software helps controlling the cpu usage of a certain process or application. http://cpulimit.sourceforge.net/ or install it via urpmi. Usage: cpulimit TARGET [OPTIONS...] TARGET must be exactly one of these: -p, --pid=N pid of the process -e, --exe=FILE name of the executable program file -P, --path=PATH absolute path name of the executable program file OPTIONS -l, --limit=N percentage of cpu allowed from 0 to 100 (mandatory) -v, --verbose show control statistics -z, --lazy exit if there is no suitable target process, or if it dies -h, --help display this help and exit - It helps me a lot especially on using dynamips (cisco emulator) and pemu (pix firewall emu) on my mandriva. Very cool.
  7. Autostart as root

    :P yay, sorry for that Ian... :D I cant recall how come I have not read it.
  8. Autostart as root

    or you can insert that to your /etc/rc.local file... all are being run as root at boot
  9. Setting up automatic PPPoE connection on boot

    Im using pppoe, mandriva 2008.1. configure it via adsl-setup , am not sure if it will prompt you to run adsl on boot., but if not, you may put it inside /etc/rc.d/rc.local. and on my config, when I setup eth0 to start at boot, it will have conflict with ppp0, so I set it not to start auto and when ppp0 went up, it will also up.
  10. Network Monitor

    what do you want to monitor? bandwidth?, availability? cacti - monitors bandwidth, you dont need to compile, just urpmi. nagios - dont need to compile also, just urpmi. just my suggestion.
  11. Mysterious network traffic [solved]

    try to do the netstat as root so all process name will display
  12. Remote file opening problem [solved]

    he should be able to open it if the remote drive has been mounted. I have similar problem when accesing same file using smb:// at konqueror but I managed to mount those remote shared folder so it will appear as local drive, and OoO does not have a problem on it. Try to find out on autofs, so the drive will be mounted only when needed.
  13. Practising safe surfing

    you need to enable ssh service on that server... that means, by default, it opens port 22(ssh) instead of port 21 (ftp) . ANd make sure, your firewall allowed access to port 22 from outside, you need to check also hosts.allow and hosts.deny if no entries for sshd
  14. Found this link thru googling... though have not tried yet. http://linuxgazette.net/124/smith.html Hope it will work on my setup.
  15. ok, I have made a search here and topic found is related to dual monitor setup. Now, I may want to ask if anyone from here have tried setting up Mandriva or on other Linux Distro a setup that uses multiple monitor (depends on how may vga available), multiple separate keyboard and mouse, on a single CPU and simultaneous multi user environment. So users can login simultaneously and not affecting each others I/O device and Display. In short, it converts a single cpu to multiple workstation. We have here a current setup, on windows, there is a third party software though that controls the usb device and the display which allows 5 separate users to use the PC like they have their own CPU. Brief details on specs. 1. usb device, you can connect here the ps2 mouse and k-board. 2. dual head VGA card to have multiple monitors. Is there a way it can be done in Linux? I'll appreciate any inputs. thanks
