I have recently acquired a Toshiba Tecra which I have installed both Vec 5.9 and 5.8 on. Both run well with few problems, but I notice during boot up that APM fails to load with 5.9. It does load with 5.8.
I don't believe APM is required on this laptop as it probably uses ACPI (see here)
Should I disable it. If so how?
I also have all applications occasionally locking up. The cursor is still movable but I cannot click on anything. Right clicking on the touch pad button usually releases the screen lock.
While typing this in AbiWord and trying to copy and paste between work spaces, one of the AbiWord toolbars appeared on all work spaces. It disappeared when I removed the highlight from the text being copied. This happens every time.
There are a few other small issues but I think most of those are me getting used to 5.9 and this new ( to me ) laptop.
