Re: equo upgrade error [Solved]

Splendid...

I guess that's an advantage of having two separate but compatible package management systems running - if one breaks, you can use the other to reinstall it.

Thanks!! :) :) :)

equo upgrade error [Solved]

I submitted the bug report via the ever-so-helpful equo 'Bug Reporter'. I just want to see if anyone else has seen this and/or has a solution. I'm concerned that even if there is a fix in a new version, I won't be able to install it because apparently entropy is currently broken on my system. [email protected]...

Re: Kwin Desktop Effects & 4.6.3 upgrade [Solved]

Yes, thanks. When I originally posted my solution I'd not noticed the 173 driver. I then saw it and upgraded. I am using that one, and it works, but didn't bother to repost. For the sake of completion I suppose I should have.

Re: Kwin Desktop Effects & 4.6.3 upgrade [Solved]

Just a note that the new driver just released into entropy (x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-270.41.06#2.6.38-sabayon) also has the same problems described in this thread. I've masked this one too.

Re: Kwin Desktop Effects & 4.6.3 upgrade

I'm going to call it a buggy driver. Whether the .06 version is the fix or not I don't know. But, I forced a downgrade to the other driver listed in entropy, rebooted, and now all is well in the eye-candy universe. >> @@ Package: x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-96.43.19#2.6.38-sabayon branch: 5, [sabayon...

Re: Kwin Desktop Effects & 4.6.3 upgrade

Thanks for all the input. I'll throw in that I've got the exact same video card (GeForce Go 7400) which, though nothing spectacular, has always worked like a charm. And as for that driver bug suggested above, I'll add that I am running the notedly buggy version (270.41.03). Can I request that we get...

Re: Kwin Desktop Effects & 4.6.3 upgrade

No luck. Tried the suggestions above. Reinstalled the driver (this demanded an upgrade to kernel 2.6.38 - so I did that too). xorg.conf has the following: Section "Device" Identifier "SabayonVga0" Driver "nvidia" #BusID "PCI:01:00" #Option "RenderAccel" "on" #Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" #Option "...

Kwin Desktop Effects & 4.6.3 upgrade [Solved]

Much like the issue described in http://forum.sabayon.org/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=24057 , after the upgrade to KDE 4.6.3, Kwin is reporting that desktop effects are too slow and so they are disabled. And as in that thread, I too found that the nvidia driver had not been properly selected. So I selected...

Re: Plasmoid installation problem: kde-misc/quickaccess-0.8.

You got it installed but is it working? For me, when I add it, it just shows up as 'unknown widget'. The error message says "Could not find requested component: quickaccess".

Any thoughts?

Re: Bluetooth not working

Your problem seems slightly different than mine, but have you tried suspending and resuming your system? For me, bluetooth does not work until I've suspended and resumed once. It's strange and irritating and I'm trying to figure out why.
