Re: what's in your opinion "the best browser" for sabayon

I use mostly Mozilla. It is the most stable for me and it lacks the Google all-seeing eye of Chromium. Chromium also has a problem for me, it takes awfully lot of CPU (and I have only 2 cores). But from the other hand, Chromium is best for streaming. Opera is also quite good, but I don't like its pa...

gedit external tools???

Hi, yesterday, I needed to use gedit as an IDE for something and I tried to turn on its External Tools. However, there's no External Tools on my Plugins menu. I have gedit 3.8.3, also the gedit-plugins. The External Tools options has to be there. But it is not. And I have no idea why. I even tried t...

Re: kdm after update won't start on starup or after hibernat

Hi and thanks for the reply! Well, I did what you suggested, but it didn't help. But anyway, after checking the log files, I finally managed to fix it! It turned out that in /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers there was a fglrx_drv.so I guess it was the one messing with the kdm, because after removing i...

Re: kdm after update won't start on starup or after hibernat

Ok, since nobody commented here, I'll update you on my progress. 1. Hibernation got fixed. I have no idea how, I just reinstalled the driver, xorg and the kernel couple of times. 2. The login problem is not fixed. After some research, I discovered it is a problem due to the drm module loading before...

kdm after update won't start on starup/hibernate [solved]

After the last update (kernel 3.4.0-r6 and everything with it), my ATI driver (of course) stopped functioning. I checked the forum already, so I see my problems are more or less general. I changed to the open ati driver by following the instructions. I can't say I'm very pleased with the result, alt...

Re: Getting PulseAudio to cooperate

Well, those were mine permission also, but obviously, something is requiring different permissions and that's the problem. I have a permission problem also with Dolphin, it wouldn't mount my hards if I don't start it from konsole with "sudo Dolphin". That happened after my last KDE update I think. D...

Re: Getting PulseAudio to cooperate

Well, I think i discovered part of the problem. It's that /dev/dsp has the wrong privileges. It had crw-r-r I think, but I' don't remember for sure. I gave it full permissions and it unblocked the sound. I'm not sure what are the optimal permissions though. I guess "crwxrwxrwx" is not the best or sa...

Re: Getting PulseAudio to cooperate

Hi guys! My sounds works great with one significant exception. Well two if we count the not-working microphone. But the more important problem is that Mozilla steals the sound. If I try to play a video in youtube, not only I don't hear sound, but also I lose all the sounds and I have to restart. The...

Re: Cannot mount an NTFS partition

Hm, you mean that there is grub installer in SL 5.2 release? Because I couldn't find it in the usual place (which is in Boto DVD -> Install -> Rescue -> Boot loader rescue). Is there other way to do that? Sorry if I'm annoying, but from time to time my grub screws up after updates and the only way t...

Re: Cannot mount an NTFS partition

Oh, thanks for the info. But I don't understand why such a useful tool was removed from SL dvd-s.
Anyway thanks, I will put the Super Grub on an USB, because it's really useful to have something like this.
