The version supplied with Mageia 1 or 2? If 2, then go to
https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6983 and change it
from a feature request to a bug report. If 1, then you could
open a new bug report.
Anyway, I am currently using 6.12.34 on Mageia 1 - and they
keep sending me little messages to upgrade. (In the event log.)
There was something that I had to modify to make it run. If
you want I can probably find what it was again, but it would
probably be better to get a bug fix and make it available to
everyone, and it is time to upgrade to Mageia2.
Sig goes here...
