    By Jesse Smith, Distrowatch “This version of OpenMandriva was presented mostly as a bug-fix and polish release and that shows. The operating system is stable and the interface looks friendly. For the most part, the distribution worked very well for me. OpenMandriva has a sense of polish and friendliness about it which is hard to …

  • Recover my X window system
    emel_punk on Thu, 20 Nov 2014 02:54:01 +0000

    HI guys

    I kinda screw up my X configuration accidentally and after reboot my pc I don't have my X window enviroment working. I was checking some info on drakconf, and accidentally went into the hardware section about the monitor, I never change anything, so when I click in "quit", it ask me about keeping the current configuration, I clicked on "yes", and then I clicked again on the monitor option and display a mesage about a corrputed file xorg or some and not recovering the file. And know after a reboot I have no display system.

    Can anybody help to get back my X window system?, or well reconfigure it to a working state.

  • Installation stops at grub2
    billHadama on Sun, 05 Oct 2014 15:19:23 +0000

    Hi all, OMA community!
    I have a laptop parted with that UEFI-GPT thing and came with win 8 preinstalled.
    I wanted to make it dual-bootable so i installed OMA 2014.0 from usb (i disabled secure boot before) but installation stopped at the final stage, that is grub2 installation. Installation software asks to try again but same result occurs.
    Pc is currently booting only in win8.

    I tried with ubuntu and installation worked as a charm, thus suggesting me that it's a OMA/grub2 related problem. In ubuntu installation i was able to install grub2 on a 800mb Fat32 partition created with aim to replicate EFI boot partition. It worked and it seems to have leaved win8 EFI boot partition untouched. Both EFI boot partitions are visible and working right from the BIOS.
    By contrary, in OMA is impossible to set a destination to grub2 and i was asking myself if there might be a way to manually install grub2 from live usb as a workaround and setting it up in order to install it wherever i want.

    I do not want to remove win8 (as i accepted their EULA) nor repartition the whole disk to MBR. I just want to sort things out with grub2/EFI. Plus, i do not want to reconfigure *buntu grub2 in order to detect OMA, one linux is enough and OMA need to be installable in a UEFI environment because it is almost standard configuration right now (and because-it's-my-favourite-distro sake)

    Any hint or suggestion?

    Thanks in advance
