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.
