A friend wants to run phpBB on Linux. What distro should I recommend he play around with? He has been programming for years but on the Windows platform so Linux is a new thing for him.

Hi b2cmI would hook him on the latest Mandriva and let him setup the "Contrib"-source to get the additional packages.Next the command "urpmi drakwizard" to install the server-related wizards and after that it is just clicking away on a few buttons in the MCC wizards to set up a server and configure any additional packages.B) Bruno

Thank you very much. Checked out the Mandriva site. Would 'Mandriva One' serve the purpose? If so, what flavor: purely free, gnome or kde version?

The Live CD will do indeed, you can install it to HD and add all the software you extra need with urpmi. ( it will be a good few MB additional because the Live CD is pretty "basic" )Take the KDE One, makes it all easier and pretty to look at :DJust let me know when it is installed and I will post the commands to add the relevant software-sources that gives access to the extra packages.B) Bruno

Posting from Mandriva One live CD. What if I it install to a spare disk on my system and after setting everything up, move the disk to his system at his office? Bad idea?

Hi b2cmThe software source for the updates is easy . . . have a look in the first post Here it will give you the 2 most important additional sources ( Main and Contrib ) as well.So, the plan is: first do the updates . . and then I will post instructions for additional packages.:) Bruno

The "'python-2.4.3-3.1mdv2007.0.i586.rpm' (9/23)" download is stalled at about 95% for more than an hour. What do I do?

Hi b2cmSeems you are ready to install the wizards for the server packages:
$ su< password ># urpmi drakwizard
It will additionally install a few dependencies . . . ;)  . . . . . after the install is complete you can open the MCC and will find additional sections like "Sharing" . . in the "Sharing" section there is the wizard to set up an apache web server.B) Bruno

Hi b2cmI "think" this is because you installed the US version and set the country to either Canada ( or other ) . .  .you can solve the "default locale" with:Type mcc in a terminal . . and after giving the root-password you will get the package manager . . . open the "add-software" and make it search for "kde-i18" ( that it the letter i and the number 18 )  . .  and see if there is a "locale" that would fit the country you live.After that the "su" problem should be solved . . . after that one we will try to tackle the other problem.:P Bruno

Hi b2cmIt is looking like there is a file missing on that mirror . .  .. you could do an "urpmi.update -a" and try again . . . or remove the present sources and add different ones ( the "coffee" one from France has a name of being complete )In any case do not force the install as long as there are unresolved dependencies, there are additional "tricks" we can try if also the French mirrors do not have the package.Also maybe show the output of "# urpmq --list-media active":thumbsup: Bruno

Ahaaaa . . . I see now what is wrong !You do not have the "Main" source configured . . . . . please do the following command as root:
urpmi.addmedia --wget "2007_main.release" ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/Mandrakelinux/official/2007.0/i586/media/main/release/ with ./media_info/hdlist.cz
( Command is ONE line ! )After that try "# urpmi drakwizard" again, and show me what it says ;):P Bruno

Had to do a complete reinstall and the updates. The only difference is that I was able to download 40 packages (previous was only 23), which is still less than the updates you enumenrated in that Mandriva update topic. Anyway, I did the 'urpmi.addmedia --wget "2007_main.release"', and then ran the 'urpmi drakwizard' command. This is what the console says:One of the following packages is needed: 1- perl-ldap-0.33-3mdk.noarch : Perl modules for ldap (to install) 2- perl-Net-LDAP-0.33-1mdv2007.0.noarch : Net-LDAP module for Perl (to install)What is your choice? (1-2)How do I proceed?

Hi b2cmCan you show me "# urpmq --list-media active" again ??Also, maybe better do Alt+F2 to get a "run-box" and then type "/usr/sbin/drakconf" to start the MCC . . . it will give less errorsB) Bruno
