Setting up ktorrent to start automatically after a power cut:
Open up the file manager (konqueror) and browse to ‘/home/username/.kde/Autostart’. Right click in that folder and create a shortcut to ktorrent
You can also add the command in your .bashrc – This is not dependent on KDE.
Using Yahoo Chat on Mandriva:
Gyache is the solution. I just ran this rpm.
Setting up NTFS read write:
Mandriva 2008 release notes read as follows:
In Mandriva Linux 2008, drives and partitions formatted with the NTFS file system can be made writeable via the use of the ntfs-3g
driver. If the package ntfs-3g is not installed, install it. Then use the Mandriva disk management utility, diskdrake. Select the desired partition, unmount it, and switch to advanced mode. Change the partition type to ntfs-3g.Click Options, and ensure the checkbox labeled ‘ro’ is unchecked. Now mount the partition again. Exit, and save your changes.
I then tweaked the mount points settings and restarted the machine.
Bingo! I was able to move 200 MB of downloaded stuff to my 320 GB hard disk which is NTFS. Now who needs Vista?
