Re: Mageia forum down

The Mageia forum is now back online:
https://forums.mageia.org/en/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=11715

There is a further update of the phpBB software (currently being tested) to be done in the next few weeks, but that should not require any significant downtime.

The forums are the last item to be fixed and now being worked on. The mailing list server was back up last week.

Re: Wireless issue (AGAIN), Mageia 5

Sorry, I have no experience of wireless. I believe that some people have had success using Network Manager instead of the Mageia tools, but that's the extent of what I know.

Re: Updated Mageia today

Mageia prefers not to update kernel versions in stable releases, but 4.1 is nearing EOL. The next LTS version is 4.4 (I think) and an update to 4.4.13 is now in QA. Of course I may be totally wrong about all this.

Re: Mageia server is getting better

The "pulse" packages that you see are related to pulseaudio and not to the Pulse software that is the subject of the agreement between Mageia and Siveo. Pulse has not yet been packaged for Mageia and will not appear in the repositories (other than perhaps as backports) until Mageia 6.

Re: Mageia server is getting better

I assume that it will be in the repo's before mga6 is released next year.

Re: Mageia server is getting better

So far as I know, there are no plans at present to use Pulse on Mageia's infrastructure. Pulse packages would be included in Mageia's repositories like any other free software, for the use of those Mageia users who want to install them.

Re: Mageia server is getting better

I think that's exactly what it is, Mageia got an income-generating contract with PULSE. There's clearly a closed-source element of some sort with it. They're pulling off a Mandriva, I'm sure. So far as I know, NONE of the statements in that paragraph is true; NO money changed hands; NO formal contr...

Re: Mageia 5

There is no problem at Mageia, but here were a large number of updates released over the last couple of days: http://advisories.mageia.org/5.html You seem to have multiple mirrors defined. I recommend that you remove all of your sources and use kernel.org as your only mirror. You can check the statu...
