    At work I often see my colleges stuck with the fact that they do all the same things with the computers, day after day. Going to facebook, see some youtube videos, reading some news, chatting and of course working. When they see I don’t use Windows or Mac they ofter say: “oh, you are one …

  • firewall => no connection/ waiting/ Panic mode
    adhefe on Sat, 20 Sep 2014 04:23:13 +0000

    I used to ssh different computers at my home network. Today, the connection was refused. I tried to access the option to set firewall at MCC to check for possible causes for the problem at the computer that refused connection. The firewall configuration window pop up with all options unavailable. I could just read below in this window:

    No connection: waiting .... Standard Zone: - Block:- Panic mode

    Messages above were translated from my native language.

    Does anybody know what is going on? Did some of the recent updates damaged anything?


  • Dual Boot Windows 8 on New HP Pavillion
    StevenSpears on Wed, 17 Sep 2014 17:46:06 +0000


    I've been trying to install the 64 bit version of Mandriva on this machine with no luck. I have turned the UEFI to legacy so I could see if the Live boot would work, but after I choose it in the menu, the machine just goes black. I cannot tell what is going on.

    I've read that UEFI should work with most modern Linux distros, so I'm guessing it shouldn't be too much of an issue with Mandriva given I have gotten the USB drive to boot it. The issue is that it just goes black after choosing to boot the Live version.

    I wish I could give more, but that is all that I have at this time.
