Re: USB mouse doesn't work in xwindows after update

The unwanted double click action is likely to be due to a problem in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. This happened to me in similar circumstances and it drove me nuts for hours. If you look at xorg.conf, I expect you will find that you now have two mouse driver sections. Simply delete the second one, r...

Re: Newbie questions

With the Kmix problem, what you do is turn the PCM all the way up and leave it there. Then the master volume will work as desired. The red menu color bugged me too. What you do is open the KDE control center and change the window decoration to something else. The red bar will (should) disappear when...

Re: Looking for some advice on video cards

You might be able to get by fine with the NVIDIA 5200, is you are not planning on gaming. I happen to use an FX 5500 with two monitors attached, and the performance is acceptable: I'd like it to be better, but it is good enough that I am not yet willing to spend the money for an upgrade. If I were y...

Re: First Questions... and yes i have been reading... AND using

I would not recommend using glsa-check routinely. I suppose if you absolutely have to have tight security, you might use it a lot, but then, if you need that much security you should use a system you are more familiar with :) I would recommend using cfg-update (you'll have to emerge it first) instea...

Re: Harddrive errors

I suppose you already surmised this: that sounds like a bug. Probably won't get any support from the vendor, since the driver is not intended for Linux. You probably have tried configuring the kernel to use the PRISM chips, but if not, it is possible that doing so would eliminate the need for the ND...

Re: Emerge updated dhcp and now I can't get online [Solved]

Look in the directory /usr/portage/net-misc/dhcp. Find the lowest ebuild there, for example dhcp-3.0.3-r9, they type emerge =net-misc/dhcp-3.0.3-r9 The files needed to rebuild the lower version should still be on your drive, so it should work even if you have no internet connection. If you do have a...

Re: Multiple Monitor Problem

It is possible to do it. I did it be referring to an example xorg.conf file posted here a while ago, in this thread: http://www.sabayonlinux.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=55&t=2619&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=xorg+conf+metamodes The smaple file won't work for you directly, because it specifies CRTs not...

Re: my entire system is spinning into choas! everyday something

The first step in this kind of troubleshooting is to decide if it is hardware or software that is messing up. To check hardware: do you have any other OS on the machine? If so, is it still working OK? Also, try running memtest for a few hours. Also, are you overclocking? If memtest works without err...

Re: Firefox 2.0.0.7 updated and ready to use.

Fixed in Firefox 2.0.0.7:
MFSA 2007-28 Code execution via QuickTime Media-link files.

Apparently it is a single security fix. Must be an important one.

Re: Creative USB MP3 player

If it is merely a write permission problem, try doing it as root. If that works it should be possible to solve the permission problem so that you don't have to do it as root all the time. I have an old Creative Nomad, it requires proprietary drivers that are a pain to use and I have not done it with...
