HARDWARE RELATED (not much you can do I guess)
1. Sound card
valsaconf setups it, the sound comes out (xmms, xine, etc can use it)
but volume control can't work.
alsamixer shows no pcm volume, xfce mixer shows 0% and cannot be changed.
2. Video card
Well, blame ATI I guess. The propriatery FLRGX does not work.
I used vxconf, chose flrgx driver, went through the ati-installer process,
I saw some errors, and finished.
After that, startx failed, it said the flrgx driver cannot be loaded.
So now only radeonhd driver works. No 3D acceleration of course
Ah atheros ... , must compile propriatery driver.
Can it be include like the ATI / NVIDIA ?
4. USB Harddisk
When I plugged it in, the system did not mount it automatically.
VL-Hot does not work maybe.
- fluxbox does not work
- MWM/TWM, I opt to exclude them from the menu. Just .... it is better to hide them
These programs cannot run:
1. vpackager: Bus Error
2. vasmCC : Bus Error
3. Acrobat reader : Bus Error
4. pidgin: Bus Error
5. Firefox : Bus Error
6. opera: segmentation fault (doh, two browsers out of 4 !)
7. scribus: Segmentation fault
8. gmplayer: Segmentation fault
I guess, the bus error is something related to dbus.
At the installation, I chose vl-hot instead of dbus.
So I guess I got to turn-on the dbus.
Hey ... where is the configurator ?
Never mind ... CLI always works ;-)
The compilation host was not right.
The time shows "localtime zone must be set".
I saw a lot of patches in /usr/src/build-kernel-xxxxxx
Could somebody give a quick HOW-TO use that, please.
1. /opt/kde/share , contains cpufreq desktop.
1. /srv, what is that for ?
2. /usr/ports, what is it ?
