  1. I am having the same problem as http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/post-147825.html but I have two monitors. I have tried manually editing the configuaration file but each time I try to launch X after it won't. My graphic cards are a trident 9660 and a Geforce2. I have a 15 and a 17 inch monitor. I am having the problems with the 17 inch monitor. If you need more information please ask. [moved from Software by spinynorman] [Edit] After running the display manger many times it has corrected itself.
  2. I have just started using it. So far I have got it to run WIn98 on Mandrake 10.0. I have a few small problems but otherwise it runs fine but a little slow.

    When I extract it it is not source code which is what is confusing me. There are two directories, bin and src.

    I need to install XPde for my parents on their computer so that they can use Mandrake Linux(Which I installed ofr them). THe problem is they have no clue how to use KDE and need something alot closer to Windows. I decided on XPde becuase I could find any better ones. I don't know how to install it and need a lot of help installing it on Mandrake 10.0.
  6. I am trying to install VMware 4.5.2 Build 8848 on Mandrake 10.0 with 2.6.3-7mdk kernel. I have installed Vmware and when I try to run it is says to run vmware-config.pl. I run it and then it says that there are no matching vmmon modules for mmy running kernel and if I would like to compile one. I hit yes and then it asks me for the location of a compiler. I use the defult and then it asks me for the locaton of my C header files. I can't find these files and I am having trouble with the new one I compiled(See one of my other topics). I need to know how I can get the headers or get my other kernel working.

  8. I mange to make my dads winxp computer look like a mac but what I want now is to run the programs(web browsers mostly).
  9. A mac is a bit too much for my budget right now otherwise I would.
  10. I get the following error message each time I try to boot the kernel I compiled. I compiled the kernel (2.6.3-16) on my computer following instructions I found on a website. How can I fix this problem?
  11. I was wondreding about running Mac OS X on my pc. So far the only ways I have fou are to use PearPC, wait for CherryOS to come out or wait for SoftPear. Does anyone know of any other ways and which way would be the easiest.
  12. I have installed a patched kernel but the installer still says that the kernel is not supported.
  13. There are no precompiled kernel on the site for Mandrake 10, the generic ones don't work and I don't know how to aplly a patch file. I download 4.5.2 but I haven't gotten it installed yet. I need the kernel source but can't find it on my system and I don't want to upgrade my kernel if I can aviod it. I tried it but I keep getting an error. Some package requested cannot be installed: flightgear-0.9.5-2mdk.src (due to unsatisfied openal-devel) do you agree ?
  14. I'm for games I am mainly looking at Flight Simulators. I have Ms Flight Sim 98, 2004 and Combat Fs and Combat and 2004 don't run under cedega but the website doesn't say anything about 98. If I can't run them then I will need to find some good ones to run on Linux. As for OSes I have the Win95, 98, NT 4.0, 200 and xp installion disks. I am curntey dual booting Xp and Madrake but I find it is a bit of a hassel to reboot all the time. If I cann't run my games then I also who like to run MS Office, Adobe Photoshop, Macromedia Flash and Dreamweaver and Corel Painter.
