Problems with 5.8 SOHO (disc received in mail):
- screen resolution remains at 1024x768 despite installing 915resolution
and editing xorg.conf file with 1280x800 in the mode lines, etc :
- wifi radar suddenly fails to start up from the menu or from an icon I
placed in the panel; the "root passward" applet comes up, but nothing
happens after entering my pw.. it was working fine for a while :
the other utilities for the wifi connection do work, but wifi radar will
not even invoke at all after entering the password
- after about the 3rd or 4th reboot/restart I now get a persistant error
message on the login screen, prior to the login area showing, saying,
"/opt/kde/share/kdm/~glass~ couldn't start," so I click "ok" on that
applet and the login screen shows and works.
This is a fresh install on a hard disk by itself from a 5.8 SOHO disc
received in the mail, not a burn of my own.
The OS seems to have gotten unstable for some reason, aside from
the screen resolution problem.
This is a new Acer Aspire 5610z notebook computer.
Anyone else seen these behaviors? Help is appreciated.
