    Probably not. Part of the problem of not reading the whole
    thread ;-)

    Good point. I think Mandriva used to be Mandrake? There were
    a few problems I ran into with Mandrake. Mandriva will
    probably be no different. Why did Mandrake change their
    name anyway? Harry Potter?

    For a newbie, turning off these services usually addresses the
    issue, although I would agree it is not the answer. I have
    iptables running on all my linux servers on my internal network,
    so I understand what you are saying.

    Sounds like it. Found a few bugs related to Mandrake. One that
    sticks out is 1612. Maybe this is related?

    Good suggestion. I'll download when I get home from work
    tonight and try the install. Maybe it will be apparent...

    They bought Connectiva. And this will surely reduce their former problem
    with Mandrake the Magician.

    Robbie has no firewall running.

    There is clearly a problem for Mandriva 10.2, because slimserver works
    out of the box on Mandrake 10.1, wehreas I had to ask it to recompile
    Perl modules so that it could work on Mandriva 10.2 (see my previous post).

    I think I found a way around the problem: use the building script that
    comes with slimserver to have it compile its own version of the
    problematic modules.
