      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. Firefox 1.5.0.9 and Yahoo! Mail [solved]

    I had a similar issue. Are you using Yahoo mail beta? I switched it back to the vanilla version of Yahoo Mail and it worked in FF1.x. Unlike you however both versions of yahoo mail worked fine after upgrading to FF2.x. So for now I can only suggest you use the vanilla version of Yahoo mail if you are using the beta version.
  2. azureus not starting [solved]

    A bug has been raised against Cooker... Thanks. :D
  3. azureus not starting [solved]

    Should we report this as a broken package? If so how do we go about doing that?
  4. azureus not starting [solved]

    I get the same thing. I've tried so many things: * Sun Java, No sun Java * playing with enviornment variables. * playing with `update-alternatives --config java` * Things I've probably forgotten. ;-) I'm at a loss...
  5. Firefox in Mandriva2007

    Here's the link where I first read about the FIREFOX_DSP setting. It appears this would be an enviornment variable, but I cannot say for certain. I just realised that I omited the location of the file where it is supposed to be located. It's in the link but here it is as well: /etc/firefox/firefoxrc. My fault for omitting that. Appologies for the confusion. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/sh...ad.php?t=453292 I also Goolged for FIREFOX_DSP as well as firefoxrc.
  6. Firefox in Mandriva2007

    I've been having this problem too. I finally googled around long enough and found that the following did the trick for me. I maybe wrong but I'm going to guess you are using KDE. Go into the KDE Control Center and in "Sound System", change the "Auto Suspend if idle" timer to 1-2 seconds. Another option I found is to change the duplex from full to half, this didn't work for me. And the final option I found was to edit the FIREFOX_DSP setting to "aoss", but I could not locate such a file in 2007 using `locate`. The first option worked fine for me. I'm providing the rest as additional information. Of course, your milage may vary. Hope this helps.
  7. lm_sensors and Mandriva 2007

    Did you go through the sensors setup, as root, on your 2007 install? sensors-detect If so, try running the command again. Possibly something changed??? Just a guess of course. :)
  8. ati radeon 9200 woes with mandriva 2007 pp

    Ron, Try this link: https://mandrivausers.org/index.php?showtopic=35106&hl= I have the same issue with the same type of card, ATI 9200. :(
  9. PLF/PLF-Free Issues

    These worked for me after fidling with URL's urpmi.addmedia plf-free http://ftp.gts.lug.ro/plf/mandriva/2007.0/...se/binary/i586/ with hdlist.cz urpmi.addmedia plf-non-free http://ftp.gts.lug.ro/plf/mandriva/2007.0/...se/binary/i586/ with hdlist.cz
  10. Start MySql and/or apache at boot [solved]

    Hi Rapha, You could also "try" the following: 1. Open up a terminal, console, shell, or which ever name you'd like to call it. :) 2. Type in the following command without the #>: #> sudo service httpd restart 3. Enter the "root" password when prompted. 4. You should see output similar to the following: Shutting down httpd: [ OK ] Starting httpd: [ OK ] 5. The important one is the "starting" section. If this works go to step 6 else step 7. 6. #> sudo chkconfig httpd on --- End: Apache should now start on subsequent boot. 7. If step 5 failed then I don't think Apache was installed. Could you explain what steps you took to install it? Similar steps to 3,4, and 6 are following for mysql. It just depends which mysql you installed. On my system I would substitute 'httpd' with 'mysqld-max'. Hope this helps.
  11. New kde-3.5.4 released

    Name: PyQt Version: 3.14.1-1mdk Architecture: i586 Size: 9301 KB Medium: Main Currently installed version: (none) I uninstalled PyQT, same version as above, and reinstalled it, same results.
  12. New kde-3.5.4 released

    Thanks mmodem! :) Also, I noticed there appears to be plenty of mention on the net (Google searches) regarding PyQT issues. Mostly appears to be regarding PyQT and HP-Toolbox, however I've also noticed an issue with SuperKaramba/Liquidweather++ and PyQT. PyQT is installed, yet LiquidWeather++ still complains that it is missing. I'm currently trying to look into how I can write a short script in Python to test if the QT bindings are there and to rule out a problem with LiquidWeather itself. Here is what I have so far. I've tried to access the python script in liquid weather++ which I think launches the QT GUI, so far no luck on either distro, but it is worse on Mandriva/MDE due to errors. As a result I cannot access the configuration options in LiquidWeather. $ python lwp_config.py Traceback (most recent call last): File "lwp_config.py", line 11, in ? from qt import * ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/qt.so: undefined symbol: _ZNK13QWindowsStyle9classNameEv $ ls -la /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/qt.so -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 6240156 Mar 7 2005 /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/qt.so*
  13. New kde-3.5.4 released

    Would it be possible to provide a later version of Kopete? Under existing user I cannot add any new styles. I created a new Linux User and Kopete still did not allow adding new styles. On my laptop running Kubuntu w/Kopete 0.12 it works fine but not on my desktop running Mandriva 2006 w/Kopete 0.11 from MDE.
  14. How did you start with Linux?

    Was given a dailup account into the school from my high-school instructor which was a shell acount. This was ages ago when 9600bps was all the rage. :) That started me on alternative platforms. Then in 1995-96, I got hold of a slew of Slackware floppies, I've been hooked on Linux ever since.
  15. Update firefox1.02 no updates?

    You could also try following the instructions listed here: http://website.lineone.net/~desmond.armstrong/updates.html I just did this and it appears to be working fine. I had quite a few extensions installed and they were either upgraded or disabled when I launched the browser.
