Find the general solution for x^2*y''-2y=0

I have searched for a long time and i cant find a clear answer

I want to find the general solution for x^2*y''-2y=0 using deslove and i typed it in as

desolve(x^2*y''-2y=0,y) and it says too few arguments
then i tried
desolve(x^2*y''-2y=0,y,x) same thing, then i switched the y ans the x didnt help

And i cant find any where the right format to use to solve this

In cases like these, one must consult the manual.

Calculators and computers are notoriously balky about accepting any old input.
For your equation, you must manipulate it so that it becomes y'' = stuff.
