Re: Kde 4.0 on Sabayon

Yes, I have the same problems as many others Plasma crashes and logout doesn't work. I followed Joost's dirty fix and deleted .kde4 folder don't try it. I couldn't log onto kde4 again and my 3.5 session lost all the artwork so I'm reinstalling (but not kde4 again). I think kde4 is not ready yet (I d...

Re: Kde 4.0 on Sabayon

Yes, I did that already (I read previous posts for once) :wink: In case someone else has the problem I edited: /var/lib/entropy/client/database/x86/sabayonlinux.org/standard/x86/packages.db.mask (for amd64 replace x86 with amd64): comment all the kde4 packages using your editor of choice. Note the m...

Re: Kde 4.0 on Sabayon

Why not enable KDE4's own desktop effects :shock: they aren't as wild as Compiz they are probably more geared towards usability. Most effect are turned off by default but can be turned on in the advanced Tab. I don't think that Compiz will play nice with KDE4 but I could be wrong of course (because ...

Re: The most annoying distro!

Sabayon definitly. It's interesting to see the comments that Ubuntu or Suse is annoying. These distros are rock solid and you really have to be a Moron to fuck one of these distro's up. Suse likes to make too many decisions for you and is more for a Newbie. I don't like when a distro decides where ...

Re: Tesco selling Linux PCs!

Great News,
I also bet on Ubuntu (how much will you bet) because the advert says Ubuntu 6.06.
Now I just have to find that Tesco store is it in UK?

Cheers!

Re: The most annoying distro!

I leave to work compiling some stuff AI (Chinese for Maid) comes and shuts down the computer while cleaning ( I thought it would be finished by the time she arrives but No No NO that's the dilemma of compiling you really never know how long it will take). I still stick o Sabayon t...

Re: The reason people distro hop

Yeah, Distro hopping is fun. I have been stuck in Sabayon since 3.4a ( I was thinking of trying earlier but waited for the 3.4 release). I'm really surprised I'm still sticking to it because I have recompiled the kernels (which went okay actually) but doing the updates has been a long process (every...

Re: Uninstalling Compiz/Reinstalling [Solved]

Yep, Sabayon (or gentoo ) is a quite demanding distro. I did a lot of distro hopping and sometimes I have been thinking of leaving Sabayon as well (when you have to kids and working at a quite demanding contract abroad you're time is limited). Anyway I really like Sab so I have stuck to it even if i...

Re: Knetworkmanager a nuisance!

Warra Warra, It's not a problem with stability once I have clicked three times it's rock solid no disconnects. As I said above changing knetwork manager to the other option encrypted (wallet) I only have to click once and then key in my wallet password but if I use the option unencrypted (I still ha...
