      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. tethering

    i used the set up new network connection under control center. pick wired connnection and the phone showed up as usb0 (htc android phone). just accepted defaults and it worked.
  2. KDE 4.4.2

    got it installed. haven't found any issues yet.
  3. KDE 4.3.5

    same here. update when fine and no issues so far.
  4. 3D Desktop

    i'm not sure about compbiz (if that's what you're trying to use) but the vbox's video driver doesn't seem to support kde4's desktop effects. at least i can't seem to get them to work under windows 7 and vbox 3.1.
  5. Dual Boot Mandriva 2010 with Windows 7

    did you install mandriva to the raid or to another drive?
  6. Mandriva 2010.0 is available

    are you talking about mandrake 10.0 or mandriva 2010.0?
  7. Dual Boot Mandriva 2010 with Windows 7

    i've got windows 7 on a raid 0 array and mandriva 2010RC2 on an ide drive. no problems accessing data on win 7. i'm using grub installed to the ide drive to boot both oss.
  8. mcc/network and internet/set up a new network interface. it's on the 4th config page. i'm not sure the name of the config file.
  9. Pidgin and Yahoo!

    thanks for the info. updated kopete. it was just sitting at "connecting".
  10. Please recommend a laser printer that works...

    i have a brother hl-2040 monochrome laser. got it for $50 last year. it's networked on a dlink print server. i would think this would make things more complicated than having it hooked up by usb/parallel. but it works fine. it's not listed in cups but brother has linux drivers on their website.
  11. KDE 4.2

    if you enable the testing repositories, i understand 4.2rc 2 is already posted. i imagine 4.2 final should show up in the next few days.
  12. swap not mounting at boot

    cool. thanks for your help all.
  13. swap not mounting at boot

    while i've got ur attention, any idea why kdiskfree looks like this? is it normal?
  14. swap not mounting at boot

    pasting the uuid from blkid into fstab worked. thanks for the help. with 2 gigs of ram, the swap doesn't really seem to get used much for what i do on the computer but it was bugging me that it wasn't working properly.
  15. swap not mounting at boot

    i was logged at root at konsole. if i wasn't wouldn't i get a command not found error? the command doesn't return anything. just drops to the prompt. no i don't share the swap partition. i just noticed that under kdiskfree, the partitions are listed as dev/sda* not sdc*. could this be the problem? output from blkid [root@localhost ~]# blkid /dev/sda5 /dev/sda5: TYPE="swap" UUID="163c7144-e2a4-4065-8ae4-ee60b6e15cc5"
