Re: Unable to login after update

Did you run equo deptest && equo libtest after your upgrade?
Can you still login on the console?

Did you try an alternative Display Manager?

Re: Boot wallpaper

How do you usually change it?

Did you have a look at splash_manager?

Re: New Install. Can't get wireless working.

Many of the .d directories in the /etc tree are actually large config files that were split up to make it easier. In this case, it's the same. You could create a new file. Let's say iwlwifi.conf, or add the option to an existing file, e.g. /etc/modprobe.d/wl.conf (what would make sense).

Re: Sabayon vs Archlinux

Sabayon is constantly calling me back, but I am afraid I will miss some features of Archlinux. What do you think? :roll: I think instead of comparing Sabayon and Archlinux, it would be easier to compare Sabayon with an Arch-based distro like Manjaro, as its philosophy is closer to Sabayon's (at lea...

Re: New Install. Can't get wireless working.

Thank you for the advice. I may just start by installing both the 3.9 kernel and 3.9 driver, and then work backwards until I find something that works. So, how do you search for wireless drivers with Rigo? Hardware drivers are part of the kernel in Linux. If you want to add a single driver for your...

Re: New Install. Can't get wireless working.

You didn't try it with an older kernel, right? According to this, the driver is broken in newer kernels: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/32249 The page also suggests a workaround. If you have driver problems and a newer kernel doesn't work, the next step should always be to try an older kernel versi...

nein, in der überschrift steht, dass ich den hintergrund des Splashscreens verändert haben will, ich hätte also am besten geschrieben: Hintergrund von Splashscreen/Virtueller Konsole ändern.

Re: Splashscreen/VirtuellenKonsolen-Hintergrund ändern.

ist aber eigentlich nicht dass was ich will, ich will nur den Hintergrund von allen Bootvorgängen personalisieren. Aha. Der Titel des Threads ist dann aber doch etwas verwirrend (Splashscreen/VirtuellenKonsolen-Hintergrund ändern). Ich denke allerdings das der Grub-Hintergrund der gleiche ist. Jede...

Re: Multiple DE

I think one of the most frequent uses of the recovery mode is probably to fix problems with your partitions. I don't think it's the same with all Linux distros, but leaving unessential mounts unmounted would at least make sense.

Re: Splashscreen/VirtuellenKonsolen-Hintergrund ändern.

Zumindest mit den Splash-Themes, die in der Distro sind, funktioniert splash_manager.

Installier doch einfach ein Splash-Theme und versuche es auf der Console zu laden:

Code: Select all

splash_manager -c set -t theme_name
