Re: Instal ALX drivers

Is the driver loaded?

If the driver is broken a newer kernel (or sometimes an older kernel) may solve your problem, yes.

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

What does ifconfig say? Does it show a wlan0 interface? If it doesn't can you activate it manually? ifconfig wlan0 up If it can be activated manually, you could try to connect to your router manually. I would disconnect my router from the internet, change the admin password and configure WiFi as ope...

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

And what make is your wireless card? Is wireless working in the Live environment? Are the lights on your card working?

Re: Upgrade trashed my system and now Rigo won't start!?

However, no version number was returned for "entropy", and this deviates from the description seen in http://wiki.sabayon.org/index.php?title=En:Entropy . equo s entropy That should give you the entropy version. I wouldn't count that much on anything written in the wiki. Much of it is either incorr...

Re: SMplayer can't play a movie on one install

On my installation, smplayer can't playback certain videos but when running mplayer directly, there is no issue.

Re: Upgrade trashed my system and now Rigo won't start!?

After each upgrade, perhaps even after each software install, you should also run equo deptest and equo libtest, and as I recently came to realise, check your eselect settings (some upgrades seem to reset them). If you don't do this, evil things happen sooner or later. :twisted:

Re: Random kernel panic - SL 13.04 x64 MATE

Can't you temporarily install v3.7 and then slowly figure out how to compile a new kernel, e.g. by finding out how the Ubuntu kernel was compiled? Or simply wait until a newer kernel that works shows up.

Re: equo install w/o equo upgrade results in broken system

Well, it's a bit difficult to determine which packages should be masked in such a case. Installing midori pulled in about 50 packages. The interesting thing is that this partial *upgrade* broke things which were set straight after doing a full upgrade. That means that there are actual dependencies t...

equo install w/o equo upgrade results in broken system

I recently installed a package on a system that wasn't upgraded. Obviously, the installation of that package resulted in the upgrade of a couple of dozen packages. The result was that gdm and pulseaudio stopped working and normal users weren't able to access USB devices. Question: Is this normal equ...

Re: New Installation

I would recommend XFCE. I had the least problems with that. If you can figure out how to start that on Sabayon, Gnome 3 Classic might be a good choice too. MATE is like a stripped down version of Gnome 2. For a while a used Cinnamon on a Sabayon MATE installation, but cinnamon stopped working after ...
