  1. I installed Suse 10.0 OSS and it works very good and at the same time I update suse it still works every think plus it recogonizemy new LG CD-RW DRIVER .

    I can playing musik on and on it works. :thumbs: for SUSE.

    At the sametime when I install Suse,suse ask me do you like to update,I say yes it works fine.

    When I install Mandriva 2005 LE and ask to upgrade I say yes ,The answer it couldn`t do it ,I will see if Mandriva 2006 will update when I install from beginning.

    So far I`m more happy then with mandriva update .


    Best wishes for X-mas and a happy new year

  2. Thanks for the free ad. Darn, I knew I should have put ads on my site...



    Small comment: the Free edition isn't entirely GPL, there are some other parts, for instance OOo is not GPL. However, it does not include any proprietary software, which is the next best thing to being completely GPL if you ask Free Software buffs...


    I looked at that OOo web pages is very good one I like it put there is for linux look up at http://www.hahaha.com :headbang:

  3. Wait I got for you and it will work 10000%


    n KsCD Click the "Extras" button and then select "Configure KsCD" from the menu that pops up.

    This opens a configuration window. Click on "CD Player" in the strip on the left of this window, then look towards the bottom of the window - you should see a section marked "CD-ROM Device". This contains a selector for which CD drive to use (if you have more than one) and below that a checkbox with the caption "Use direct digital playback". You need to tick this box if you do not have a separate audio cable between your CD player and your soundcard.


    That`s the one :banana::banana::drum::drum::thanks::thanks:

  4. Actually, while the 20% rating is a bit too high, I actually somewhat agree with what wilcal said. Some laptops (like IBMs) are built like a brick so failure rates is less than 5%. Other brands seems to have 50% failure rates (in my experience it is usually Toshibas). It seems that every laptop is built in China with unreliable Chinese components, so only the brands that actually have high specifications have better than average failure rates.


    Also remember that laptops, by nature, are portable. But the components inside may not be as strong to be carried around. I have my filll of seeing things like bad LCDs, non-working ports, broken HDs, broken CD-RWs, broken keyboards, batteries that doesn't hold their charge, etc, etc. My rule of thumb is that a laptop bought after year 2000 will last probably 3 years at most, while a laptop bought before year 2000 can last for 5 or even more.



    Ok,ok right now I`m looking for a Compaq Presario R4000 notebook PC what you thing about that?.

  5. Yes I have broadband conection and I use CDs to install goody stuff,I did already what you saying"Any way, click on the MCC (aka: Configure your computer) and go to the software section -> Install software. You can browse through the available packages quiteeasily there".

    Ok but I see a software I like it in http://www.distrowatch.com or other web page I like one software to download where should I direct to and how to install them in what directory.

    Ohhh I have lots of DVD or CD from LINUXFORMAT.CO.UK and how can I dowload?

    Where should I download?

    Do I have to make a new directory to install the software?

  6. I doubt that switching to SUSE will solve your networking problem at once. As I said in the other post, you should make sure first that it is not your ISP that causes the problem. If that proves negative, then we should take a look at your system. The tools for networking used in SUSE and Mandriva are almost the same, so don't expect any wonders when using SUSE.


    And it would have been nice if you would have added this to your original post (https://mandrivausers.org/index.php?showtopic=28260&hl=) instead of starting a new one. This makes things easier for everyone. ;)


    edit: Just saw that you added info about your ISP in the other post.  :oops:


    No it is not ISP because right now I`m using winXpPro to go in internet and it is working very good,soooo it is Mandriva 2006 beta4 is the fold i`m sure some where lays in the software or hardware.


    I can`t find solution with thumb-thing the last answer is my friend he can help in no time and he told me it could be your BIOS.

    He toldme Bios comes with you motherboard and can`t do nada.

    One solution is suse 9.3 or wait and get 10.0.

    So I wait and get the suse 10.0,I know it will be out in october theres no time table.

    Thats ok if you find in other posting.


    Ciao mike :banana::banana:

  7. Well I phoned ISP and talk to them it is Mandriva -linux has something to do because in winXP works fine or something else.

    In fact linux is 100% safer then winlose,so my frien told me to wait and get suse 10.0 version.


    Ciao Mandriva-user

  9. You need to open KDE Control Centre and select Components then select Session Manager in there, make sure there is a tick in the two boxes in General. Look at the other options to see what you want and put a tick in those as well. Click on apply and when you next log out you will get a little menu box asking whether you want to reboot or whatever.


    Cheers.                                     John.


    Well it is not working hmmm?


    Ciao Mandriva-user
