Re: No xserver when installing or booting the live version

Installing Sabayon 5.4 works fine!
That is correct. This problem with 5.5 is so unexpected because Sabayon usually works well, when many other distros fail :mrgreen:

Re: No xserver when installing or booting the live version

I can confirm the problem. Md5 sum is correct, mine is ATI Radeon XPress 200M and I cannot get past the blinking cursor.

Re: X crash after restoring a minimized window

Argonaut. How did you manage to install a different version of xorg-server 1.8.2? Try using unmask for 1.9 and mask for 1.7 but I can not install a different 1.8. I didn't install a different version, and also I am managing my system through equo, so I cannot offer any intelligent help with portage...

Re: Xorg server crashes randomly (Gentoo bug 320055)

Another, more up-to-date description of the problem:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28181

In the meanwhile, no segfaults occur by using Compiz instead of KWin + OpenGL (KWin + XRender is unusable).

Re: Hello & MuseScore 0.9.6

Hi phenix and welcome to Sabayon!

Concerning the 1st part of your post: Indeed!People like us do 'end up' in the Linux side of the world sooner or later. Probably something with how we (like to) view the world. So, a warm hello to you from a fellow urban designer/photographer :mrgreen:

Oxygen widget style missing [Solved]

Hello- This took me some time to solve. Some people, including me, were missing completely the official KDE Oxygen style. All oxygen-related files were installed properly and in place, but the option to select it in System Settings > Application Appearance > Style > Widget Style was absent. Re-insta...

Re: Xorg server crashes randomly (Gentoo bug 320055)

Two small updates. I have found that selecting XRender (instead of OpenGL) in KWin settings solves the problem. But then KWin goes so slow that it is unusable. Franchutte13 , here is the content of my "/var/log/kdm.log", with a backtrace and fatal error/segmentation fault: Backtrace: 0: /usr/bin/X (...

Re: Linux freezes when using reboot or shutdown command [Sol

I experienced the same behavior in my laptop some three weeks ago (although I'm not sure if the source of the problem is the same). What worked for me was to disable the logout sound from KDE system notifications settings. There was a bug with loading the sound file, and this was freezing the entire...

Re: X crash after restoring a minimized window

Same problem here, still unfixed (http://forum.sabayon.org/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=21957). Seems exclusive to version 1.8 of Xorg Server combined with the free ATI driver, at least from my point of view. Reported solutions in the link. My solution, is to use whatever version of Xorg Server was in Entro...
