  • [SOLVED]default PATH is wrong in OpenMandriva
    rpoisson on Thu, 05 Jun 2014 14:48:11 +0000

    Recently I tried to use dvbv5-scan as an alternate method to scandvb for scanning DVB-T devices and found out that it systematically failed with a coredump.
    No problem, there are more recent versions almost every day in the git repositories (v4l-utils) ...
    Puzzled by the fact the problem seemed still unsolved and before reporting the error over there I then verified what instance I was running:

    [me@somewhere ~]$ which dvbv5-scan
    However, the locally built version is, logically, installed in /usr/local/bin. Next step, I verified the PATH:
    [me@somewhere ~]$ echo $PATH

    I verified also on a Fedora Live distro, /usr/local/bin shall appear in before /usr/bin the opposite is worthless. "local" directories are meant to override generic programs.

    Does any one know how to permanently and safely modify the PATH at system level ?
    BTW, there is no way other than manually removing OMV installed dvbv5 programs to use local ones because urpme v4l-utils wants to remove 74 other useful packages ..!

  • 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?

  • Wrong battery status in GUI when laptop is connected to charger
    viking on Wed, 10 Sep 2014 13:17:12 +0000

    Looks like I have another strange issue that is more annoying than a real problem.

    When my batter is full and I am on charger, my batter looks like it is empty and when I put mouse over battery icon I am getting "Battery 0%".

    Here is the screenshot

    And I am getting correct info from console:

    [viking@delta ~]$ acpi
    Battery 0: Full, 100%
