  • text-mode login and RPM problem
    dacq on Wed, 22 Oct 2014 17:32:50 +0000

    I tried to enter text-mode login by using
    ln -sf /lib/systemd/system/ /etc/systemd/system/
    When I rebooted all I got was a blank screen. Help.

    I double clicked the Java RPM file and tried to install it but don't think that it worked. Now I can't enter the Mandriva Control Center.

  • Chromium stable could not initiate chromium session
    MacLone on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 20:26:11 +0000

    I have been testing Chromium-stable version after version on openmandriva and always has had the same problem: could not initiate chormium session (session unavailable; try later) This is the only distro i use with this kind of bug. Google chrome works fine but i don't want to use chrome. How this bug hast lasted for so long? openmandriva users use firefox only? There is not a single post about this in the forums and i'm sure is not a problem with my computers or internet. Any aidea?

  • netbook slower after memory upgrade from 1Gb to 2Gb
    bpesda on Thu, 23 Oct 2014 21:04:33 +0000

    I have just installed OMV 2014.1 16bit on a Toshiba NB250. This had only 1Gb of ram when I did the install and a warning was issued that the memory was inadequate for the distribution. However I proceeded with the install and it all worked albeit a little sluggishly. So I installed 2Gb of RAM and to my surprise it ran even slower. Suspecting that it could be the memory that was at fault I tested the boot times with Windows 7 starter 32bit and found it to be a little quicker with 2Gb than 1Gb. I then tried with OMV 2014.1 32bit and again found boot times to be longer with 2Gb than 1Gb of ram. Has anyone else seen this behaviour?
