Encrypted swap partition

Hi all,

Just installed SL9 KDE 64bit & encrypted my swap partition, now wish I hadn't.

Is there any way to undo this (short of re-installing?).

Thanks!

Re: Mirrors lists

Hi albfneto,

Just installed Sabayon x86_64 K 6 & updating via Optus.com.au was taking me forever (being in the UK) :(

So thanks for advising how to change mirrors :D

Re: Can't get to live desktop

Hi Fitzcarraldo,

No haven't tried 'xdriver=vesa' yet, will try that next weekend.

Find it hard to understand why some Linux distro's just work out-of-the-box, whereas some others take more work.

Suppose people just go with what works with their hardware.

Thanks for the advice :D

Re: Can't get to live desktop

Hi,

Well I used 'xdriver=nv' in the boot options, alas to no avail :(

Funnily enough, it boots to the live desktop using Virtualbox.

Perhaps, my nVidia Geforce GTX280 is at fault, but works fine in Fedora, openSUSE, Debian, mandriva etc...

Thanks for the advice.

Can't get to live desktop

Hi All, Started using SL way back in 3.26 without any problems.

Re: Wallpaper only on one side of desktop cube

Hi Thev00d00,

Thanks for the advice.

Any idea why 3 of the 3 kwin cube faces show a plain colour, not the wallpapers configured; after a reboot?

Not a biggie, just a minor annoyance :?

Wallpaper only on one side of desktop cube

Hi guys, SL K 5.1 64 bit Recently came to back into the Sabayon fold & noticed something odd on my machine :? I enabled a slideshow of wallpapers, changing once every 10 min's. I performed the same on each of my 4 KWIN cube faces. Now each time I reboot, I only have the wallpaper slideshow on deskto...
