My ThinkPad does not have a DVD burner and I'm looking to buy an external one. I have found one but I need to know if there is an app like DVD shrink for linux. Does such a thing exist?


Well, apparently DVD Shrink works well under Wine.

For Mandriva repositories, I found this nice site:
SmartUrpmi

Select your version and 64/32 bit, and it will present you a vast list of mirrors for all the Mandriva repositories, from which you can choose. You can then have a bash script created which automatically adds all the mirrors you selected, so you don't have to do it manually. Make sure you're connected to the internet when running the script.

Does anyone know if there's a Linux alternative to Nokia's Ovi (PC) Suite? I tried all the apps I know (nokinux, wammu, etc.), but none of them seem to work with a N80 phone, for example. Wammu detects the phone and the only option that works with it is Info. No sms, no contacts, nothing else...

Since Microsoft bought Skype, I doubt it will be included by default. You can always download it off their site as a .deb file, until they decide to kill it off.

first of all, was it really necessary to bump a 2 year old thread (you could have made your own)

second of all, I don't believe skype was ever in the ubuntu software center (at least as far as i've ever know since back in the 10.10 days)
