  1. f I try to boot into Xen kernel machine restarts itself (few seconds after the boot). /etc/grub/menu.lst (I have tried some different settings): title xen kernel (hd0,0)/xen.gz dom0_mem=131072 module (hd0,0)/vmlinuz-2.6.12-18mdkxen0 root=/dev/cciss/c0d0p6 How to configure Xen kernel so that it would boot?
  2. Now that www.thebrix.org.uk seems to be dead, is there a place where I can find non-official RPM repositories for Mandriva.
  3. It is about integrating Smart Package Manager (not apt-rpm !): http://smartpm.org/
  4. It takes some time before menus of KDE programs start responding. More info at: http://qa.mandrakesoft.com/show_bug.cgi?id=15120 Does anyone else have this problem? [moved from Installing Mandrake by spinynorman]
  5. I can't add new media during installation: http://qa.mandrakesoft.com/show_bug.cgi?id=11189 Does anyone else have the same problem?
  6. There is another way to fix xmms problem if you use KDE. You can install xmms-arts and select arts output in xmms. This is better because sound still works in other applications that use arts. So you can't download xorg-6.8 RPM (seperatly) even if you are a club member?
  7. Default look of Mandrakelinux 10.1 beta 2 (fonts are changed)
  8. There are some problems with KIO in KDE 3.2.3 (bug #10934, bug #10973).
  9. A simple GUI for some common administration tasks: http://mandrakeprinas.org/mpnen You can run it like this: cd /var/tmp && wget -q --output-document=mpnen http://mandrakeprinas.org/mpnen && chmod +x mpnen && ./mpnen; rm -f mpnen This script was originaly written for Slovenian Mandrake users. Now that it is translated I am posting it here. With it you can: - Remove all RPM sources (including CDs or DVDs) - Set RPM sources for MDK Official (ADSL / cable) - Set RPM sources for MDK Official (ISDN / modem) - Set RPM sources for MDK Community (ADSL / cable) - Set RPM sources for MDK Community (ISDN / modem) - Install sharp looking fonts - Install MPN Theme - Install Flash plugin - Preload OpenOffice.org when KDE starts - Install libraries for DVD - Install RealPlayer (alpha version) - Update RPM sources (Find new packages or new versions of packages) - Install updates - Install kernel with latest security updates - Install latest versions of installed packages
  10. The problem is also this: http://www.freetype.org/patents.html I have a page about how to fix it but it is not in English. ;-) http://mandrakeprinas.org/clanki/pisave.php General idea is this: 1. Install libfreetype6 from PLF (Bytecode Interpreter is enabled). 2. Install msfonts. 3. Disable antialiasing for small fonts. 4. Disable most of other fonts (other fonts look ugly without antialiasing).
  11. Sorry, I was wrong. Deliting it from /etc/dynamic/launchers works after the restart.
  12. None of the following seems to work: 1. Commenting out lines in: /etc/devfs/conf.d/dynamic.conf 2. Deleting files from: /etc/dynamic/launchers 3. Deleting files from: /usr/share/apps/kdesktop/Desktop ...icon is recreated every time after the login. Help!
  13. Is there a way to configure urpmi so that it would use more than one server for a given media (contrib, plf, updates...). So that it would use the second server if the first is down and so on. Or do I still have to do this by hand?
  14. Is there a way to provide secure file transfer on Mandrake Linux? Users need to be limited to their own home directories. I could use "msec 4" for this, but then some things don't work (e.g. pop3).
