  1. I am not so sure about its performance (speed wise). Beryl was flawlessly doing its job for mr. In addition to the above I keep having a segmentation fault when invoking gsetcompiz, therefore I can't even configure it Once home I'll give it a try again. Thanks!
  2. Thanks, I'll do. I have spring 2007.1 and latest complete repostitories enabled (upgraded yesterday) built from easyurpmi. I tried even removing all packages from both compiz and beryl (including emerald, gset-compiz and the alike to allow a 'fresh' install thru drak3d. But it didn't work.... Beryl-core is only available in the 0.2.0 branch, not in 0.5.2..
  3. Hi, Following several packages upgrades I do not find beryl-core to be available, anymore. This forces me to use compiz(-fusion) as standard desktop eyecandy manager. Despite its currently poor performance (if compared to standard beryl) I keep getting a segmentation fault when trying to run gset-compiz, thus ending up having a worthless manager. I’d like to go back and reinstall beryl but it seems impossible due to missing of the core package fro my repositories (all that are available thru easyurpmi). Can anyone give a good hint? I kinda miss my ol’looking beryl-powered environment. Thanks
  4. This probles has ben solved -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I had installed a 7ports, externally powered USB HUB to face lack of available ports on my case. This hub strangely caused both external volumes to not being automounted when powered on. The issue was solved by simply removing the DC adapter plug from the hub, thus having the hub powered by my 500W power supply, though the case’s USB port. Even more weird was the fact that this situation was not occurring when running two other installed distributions: Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty and Ubuntu Gutsy b1 (future 7.10). Obviously I could never imagine it could have been a problem related to a self powered USB 2 hub. Thanks for your help and I hope this may serve as a solution to anyone else having to face the same snag… D*
  5. I'm not at home, currently. I will check if the daemon is running properly. However I still wonder what might have happened during the package upgrade I ran.... Will follow your advice and post the results later this evening. Thanks, d*
  6. I do agree on NTFS-config. Does not do the job. However I might have simplified my issue. I can not access both of my external disks: NTFS AND FAT32. They simply don' show up in /media, once I turn them on. got a better clue?
  7. Don't think it is my case. I do normally umount external volumes, not simply turn them off. It's weird: I upgraded some packages, thru the auo-upgrade feature and found myself with no access to neither NTFS NOR FAT32 external storage bxes. So I believe this has got really nothing to do with the filesystem type. Might it be something wrong with HAL? d*
  8. I'v actually tried but it only allows selecting or disabling write acces to external NTFS volumes. That I checked and it is enabled... I am going insane on this. Is there a way I can check recently installed packages, thus backibg up latest known working status AFAYK? D*
  9. Hi, I've upgrqded some pqckqges (usb stuff) in my spring 2007.1 and my external USB disk, NTFS formatted, which was read/write user accesible, is no longer automounted. Any clues? Please help!!! d*
  10. I've installed 7167 on 10.2b3 with nop probles at all. Plus I am getting better overall performance running gl-117 over 6129 previously installed. So far so good
  11. Where can I see this? I just deleted al my partitions, made new ones, and now installed winXP. I will install Mandrake as soon I know the problem is fixed. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Well you should have known, in the first place. When you installed Mandrake you had to partition the disk, creat filesystems and install packages. You can do a 'cat /etc/fstab' to take a look at your mounted partition and see what filesystem resides on them.
  12. Thanks! I've been using betas, even alphas, when available, since Mandrake 7 (!!!!). Crashed so many times, had to go through a repartitioning lots but this is what I find to be somewhat exciting... My mandrake shows off cooker stuff all the times and evetually will crash, some times.
  13. What kind of filesystem did you have on your root ( / ) partition? reiserfs? ext3? It might be useful to use rescue mode (boot cd1 and at the prormpt type 'rescue'), mount your partitions under /mnt and run a fschk.reiserfs or fschk.ext as appropriate to try fixing problems. It worked for me, a couple of time. Cheers
  14. Truthfully I had problems installing 6629 onto 10.2b3 but once edited the file rhconfig.h and removed the excess '&&' at line 43 position 194 it compiled the module fine and I now have my FX5500 working fine again.
