      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

Practical Posting Guidelines

Recommended Posts

To help you best when you ask a question on the MUB we need a minimum amount of relevant information and you need to have done some things yourself. That's why I've made a small list of things to check when you open a new topic on Mandrakeusers.org. It's just a first try so if you want to give any input on these items, or maybe want to add something, feel free to reply.


Practical posting guidelines:


1: Use the search function to check if your question has been answered in an earlier post.


2: Post your problem in the correct sub-forum


3: Use a clear topic-title and, if you use Mandrake, tell us what version you're using. Example: Mandrake XX - No sound after configuring Audigy 2 ZS.


4: Always tell what you have tried yourself and what tools you have used.


5: Describe your problem coherently.


6: Do not ask the same question twice


7: If you problem is solved edit your post and add the word [solved] to the topic title


8: If people help you, say thank you. Don't just leave the thread. (suggestion made by Dustpuppy)


9 If you solve a problem, say how you did it, rather than just saying it's now solved. Then other people with the same problem can find the solution. (suggestion made by Dustpuppy)
