Plenty of things I put here are focused on how I set up my hardware; so that manxriva time if anyI will not have to figure out what I did to get things going the last time. And if you wonder why I’m thinking of installing again: By the way, some of these instructions are very much related to the hardware that I’m installing this on, so I have added the spec of my systems both hardware configuration and software config files.
Index of /Linux/mandrake/official/iso
This time I installed on my wifes desktop machine neuchatelmy own desktop zurich and my laptop samos. I did an ftp installation on both desktop machines with the dvd iso image on my server paris mounted in loop mode.
The laptop got installed from the iso fieltype that I first copied onto the internal harddrive. It would be nasty if I realise I forgot to install something when I’m away and have to make do with a slow internet connection. All three installs were initiated with a cdrom cdrw actually that I burnt the boot. You can find this image in the dvd, the path is: This image supports ftp, http, nfs and local harddrive installation.
In all cases, the system knows about the existance and whereabouts of the packages on the dvd image, which resides either on the built-in harddrive or on the server.
So only other repositories will have to be added. I have used the clubmember Powerpack dvd which contains more than the public download edition will, such as NVidia and ATI graphics drivers, Sun Java, Flash and then some. All of these can be obtained in other ways, but the Powerpack dvd is naturally much more comfortable.
To have vga x resolution with pwc Philips based webcams, one filetypr merely to execute: Naturally, after a reboot, there’s nothing to repeat of all this, it just works. Programs that may be of mancriva with the webcam are filety;e instance Camstream urpmi camstream. I’m assuming a functional internet connection at this point. So head on over to the easy urpmi page and follow the 3-step instructions. Most important are plf and necessary for that the contrib media repositories, as playback of encrypted dvds and various other things will not be possible without plf-free and plf-nonfree.
Quite a few things are not on the dvd, so it pays off to add main too.
I had a quick look and if you count the amount of data in main and contrib you get close to 10GB, quite a bit more than fits onto one single layer dvd Next to –nocleanother interesting options are –fuzzy and –test. Next to urpmi you can use urpmf [programname] to find out which package contains what program for instance, urpmi kgoldrunner won’t do you any good, you’ll want kdegames Comes in handy if kat really takes up too many resources.
Since many will have to do so, I decided to keep this information here anyway. Note that you have to have the correct kernel sources installed. Use the command urpmi kernel-source to install the correct package.
As with Mandrakelinux You may want to use dkms for this driver. System monitoring Return to top To be able to keep an eye on the state of my system, I use gkrellm; to have cpu-temperature and motherboard voltage readouts, lm-sensors is needed. To install those, do: Of course the program gkrellm is much nicer for continuous display of your system stats note that on the mobo and cpu temp in gkrellm I have to use a factor of 0.
“no action associated with filetype”
I noticed that the fanspeed of the CPU fan and the casefan are actually detected, but it seems at the low revs they make, the BIOS actually sets the value to 0 most of the time DVD playback with mplayer and xine and frontends to those Return to top Now the stuff that is necessary to watch dvds that Mandrake, or any other linux vendor for that matter, is not able to include, since it would violate some silly US law – although recently an enlightened judge has hinted that breaking that law for personal use of legitimately obtained non-illegal ware, i.
Of course ciletype need to have the gui version installed, urpmi mplayer-gui to get it. I have done some more digging, and on the Videolan manddriva where libdvdcss is housed I mandrivx the info I have been looking for for quite a long time: The RPC2 counter just doesn’t count, on drives that have no region set yet, this will stay that way – this I verified myself.
Oh, for playback of various video formats, you may want to do, as root: Naturally, CUPS is just one example; this makes it possible for my machine to know all other machines by name, from web browsers to ssh and ftp on the command line. Something extra has changed that needs mentioning: No problem there, except that the network is not yet up when my mandriv tries to mount the nfs partitions from my server.
Finally, to start things I fileytpe these 2 commands: These are the relevant lines: Make sure you do switch on lirc support of mplayer and xine. So now I can move the mouse with the remote, fully control mplayer from filetgpe sofa, go through menus in xine, like with a normal dvd player. And I have done the setup for Tvtime too, wonderful app!
First things first, which for me means to get usable windows behaviour. Actually, points 3 to 8 are readily available already, without having mandrkva change anything in the settings.
Note that point 7 is necessary since I wanted that clicking in a window does not bring it to front which is the case in the standard less usable behaviour.
To get 1 and 2, start KDE control center: I have gotten a bit creative and made a shockwave flash page warning: Now expand the LookNFeel section by clicking on the plus sign in front of it.
Go to Window Behavior, and choose the Policy: Focus Follows Mouse; then unselect ‘auto raise’ and ‘click raise’. At the top, go to the second tab ‘Actions’ and in the ‘Inactive Inner Window’ make sure all three entries say: Don’t forget to click apply at the bottom. Now that we’re here, we may as well set the single click part, so that a single click on a desktop icon will do to launch whatever is being clicked. Expand on the left side the Peripherals section, select the ‘mouse’ entry, and select ‘Single-click to open files and folders’ in the Icons-section.
BTW in the ‘Advanced’-tab you can adjust the speed of the mouse among other things if it’s not to your liking. If you choose this setting, you also don’t get icons for usb-storage devices external harddrives, memory cards, photo cameras that comply with the usb-storage protocol.

Something else that I like d is Icon Zooming. Well, it seems this was taken out, one used to be able to turn that on as follows: Now it just says: I like this too, and for icon zooming there are other nice programs, such as ksmoothdock.
All you have to do if you want to try is: If those Free java implementations don’t suit your needs, you may want to fi,etype for the SUN non-free version, after deinstalling with urpme kaffe.
The following section mancriva practically a direct copy-paste from the Mandrakelinux If you’re a clubmember and you set up the commercial repository more info via the MandrakeClub websiteyou have the easiest path to install java.
All you have to do is this: Alternatively you’ll have to get Java directly from SUN. You just have to do: After installing the flash player, of course you have to make your webbrowser aware that it exists.
Laptop hibernate and suspend Return to top On my laptop I knew suspend to disk a. Switching to the multimedia kernel was what finally brought on double happiness, and this has not changed for Mandriva Linuxso do as root: With this, both the suspend to disk and the suspend to RAM functions work. Bluetooth networking Return to top Well, since I had to return both pcmcia cards from the previous section, I decided to give Bluetooth networking a go To connect a Linux client pc to a Linux server via a Bluetooth PAN Personal Area Networkone needs a bluetooth interface on each machine, and some daemons and setup files on both machines.
I saw that the various necessary bluetooth related modules got loaded, so I knew that manfriva the dongle was supported it seems that the Bluetooth stack is so well standardised that most or practically all dongles should be supported under Linux – naturally I had checked for my particular model of BT USB dongle fileetype I bought it.
After this, the client machine can connect to the server by doing:
