Help with installing Mandriva One 2007.0-KDE Spin

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm a first time prospective Mandriva user, had a nagging question with regards to the Mandriva One Live CD Installer for KDE. The KDE version contains the Nvidia drivers which is perfect for me, and has Compiz enabled by default..all perfect and fine. However, when I perform an install, it does not ask me for a username/password for root and also for adding a regular user!! It just installs, and asks for a reboot and upon restart...it configures the network connection, every time!! and goes through adding the username/password each time. I figured out a way for the username/password thingy to go away...but the nagging questions on Locale and Network Setup pop up every time!

 

Can anyone help me in getting rid of this? The install is perfect for me in every sense...has the 3D graphics, Amarok for my iPod, Konversation for IRC...but then this small detail bothers me to no end.

 

Thanks in advance!!

I would try configuring these settings through the Mandriva Control Center (Configure My Computer) and have them start at boot time.
