  1. Took me about 2hrs with Mandrake 8.1 and this forum...either that makes me a geek or that enough $$$ can convince anyone M$ is the only game in town.... Oh nuts, I just remembered I took Fortran in college (punch cards) and started on Apple DOS (Apple ][+) then MS DOS 3.x...I am a geek :cry:
  2. That was kind of fun, to see a few magyarul speakers out there. CJC is my nick here, Americanized family name = Chany, Hungarian spelling Csanyi. Wish I spoke/wrote more...no one to pracitce with :sad:
  3. Igen!!!! cjc = chany = csanyi
  4. Well for whatever reason, on boot and giving Mandriva one last chance to get all the update links/downloads right... Everthing worked today :unsure: Still scratching me head over this...but hey I'm updated and current. B)
  5. Thanks Paul...snif , someone remembers me.... Glad to be back mate! I think, M2006 is being unusually weird. Performed: urpmi --clean uprmi now locked...no problem, log out / reboot hey I'm a noob now! And I use Windows Back into Mandriva Control Center... pick a site any site for updates etc. Darned if none of them want to work...can't connect, configuration is wrong or other lame excuse... Heck I am connected...how do they think I'm posting this? Telepathy? Won't be a loss if I need to run the M2006 DVD and reinstall (nice having DSL!!!!! :D ) Suggestions?
  6. Hi Gang I have been away from Linux way too long, a change in jobs, divorce (which really sucks), ssssssllllllooooowwwww dialup (26.6-24kbps), well now I have DSL - YES! Okay I used the typical easy way to do updates (Mandriva Control center), seems that Firefox 1.5XXXX has signature issues and refuses to install. I have changed mirrors and such and keep getting the same... Looks to me like I am going to have to do a manual delete of the downloaded files. Where does Mandriva store the downloaded files? Like I said I've been away for a while...back to noobie state. Sorry for the stupid question. Thanks CJC

    Um... My young friend...not to start a war here (or be disrespectful) Have you installed this version? As you seem to me a "Linux Guru" (way ahead of me by light years) - did you offer to help Aussie John? Or the author? Pehaps AJ did "jump the gun" with his comments, however your comments are not very helpful either (my opinion). Let us educate and help each other here not blast and downgrade. I have been away so long I qualify as a complete noob at this point... (No, I haven't moved to Iowa yet....still commuting...still learning the new job)

    Free or pay?

    This was my approach also...I have bought 2 versions (8.2, 9.2) and had a Club membership as well. The trial of a full version is what convinced me to support MDK (as well as this forum)

    Asus and Linux

    Very sad :sad: :sad: I have the following Asus MOBOs A7A266 - Win XP / MDK 9.2 A7M266 - Win XP / MDK 9.2 A7N8X-X - MDK 9.2 only I have had good luck with Asus boards, guess the next go around is with someone else...

    Athlon and Intel

    I beg remind you of some events which saved AMD. AMD was on the verge of going under when Intel brought out the Pentium III chip which had a factory tracible ID code. (Intel claimed this was to ID authentic, not knock off chips) Great cries of "Big Brother is watching" and worries about who could access this information and what it could be used for scared/outraged a whole bunch of us who immediately jumped to the AMD Athlon series of chips (Slot A)...now the people had a choice...AMD or Intel... Yes, there are all the processing speed advantage claims...casual users, not pushing systems to the absolute limit will not notice differences in similarly rated Intel/AMD chip sets. (other than out of pocket difference). Why hav I stayed with AMD over Intel...partly because of the ID scare, partly because supporting a choice, partly because of price/performace and partly because I can have a choice if I so choose which performs as well or better than the other choice...
  11. I can't speak for Fedora... I have a Sony FR-130 laptop (AMD 2000 XP) and it plays very well with both Win XP and Mandrake 9.2 (dual boot machine)
  12. First question to ask about your downloaded MDK 10: Did you do the checksums on the iso's (before CD burning) to be sure they were not corrupted?
  13. Could have had that long ago if I had been told/asked to put it in gif rather than png. :deal: It does look like you made some improvements to make it sort of 3-D looking (more depth and puffy)...I think it looks much better than what I did...
