Re: I can not install Sebayon 7 on my new pc !!

nope, just click once to start ... I suggest to walk away because it takes incredible amount to start .... as a user I would click it 10 times. :roll: I have no clue if this will help, just asking to click once and let it run for 10 min. I am saying that this did help another user on irc, I never ha...

Re: NVidia HDA sound channels haywire after upgrade.

sounds as simple as opening a terminal and as user enter command alsamixer

Post back if this does not work.

Re: Problem with packages signatures

Ok I will try to help, am scratching my head though ..... usually this type of error is because it is not fully downloaded to your mirror ... some sort of mismatch in package ... I dunno why after this time it is still failing, no one else is reporting it. So lets start with your mirrors. We already...
