 554 2010-03-062017-08-25Bug Report 2.0 : scrolling disabled with touchpad ClosedJean-Francois Blazy
100%
3.0 Task Description

Version 2.0 new kernel Topaz

laptop Dell Vostro13, touchpad synaptics, gsynaptics 0.9.14-6 installed

No scrolling at all with the touchpad (vertical, horizontal...)

tap is ok (double tap= 1 click)

It seems that’s it doesn’t work at all, when I try to load the touchpad menu, I get :
“Synaptics couldn’t initialize.
You have to set ‘SHMConfig’ ‘true’ in xorg.conf or XF86Config to use GSynaptics”

I’ve added these lines to the xorg.conf file, and also a shmconfif in hal (like in this doc : http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/touchpad ...in french), reloaded the system and nothing (the ibar only disappear the 1st time...)

saw on some boards it could be a problem with the kernel (?)

 541 2010-02-042017-08-26Bug Report Enlightenment SEGV while changing resolution ClosedMichal/ Wernicki
100%
3.0 Task Description

When trying to change resolution screen goes black and a box appears showing that Enlightenment SEGV’d.

To reproduce this bug please boot Elive from a CD, selecting automatic resolution. After full boot up enter Settings Panel/Screen/Resolution and choose some other resolution and frequency but do not save your selection, just click “restore” button and then change frequency again. Now this crash should happen.
I supose this behaviour is easier to reproduce using CRT display.

My guess is that this SEGV happens because when you mark resolution and frequency for the first time and cancel, the choice of resolution is not remembered, but you are still able to choose frequency and try to set it.

My rig has GeForce 5700 FX and thus uses nvidia 173 driver.

I`m running 1.9.56 development Version on my Laptop with a X1300 Mobility radeon.
Compiz works under Ubuntu 9.10 out of the box. I use there the OSS ati driver.

On Elive there seems to be a bug with the included ati driver. I’ve tried several Notebooks with ATI graphic cards. None of them worked.
On every machine I’ve got the following message:

$> ecomorph

ecomorph (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
ecomorph (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

a compiz-check shows, that everything should be ok:

3.01 Task Description

Hi,
I use elive installed on a Dell D410 laptop with Broadcom BCM4311 wifi card. I can see networks, but I’m unable to connect to anyone because dhclient is unable to obtain an IP address.
I tried other wifi cards (Realtek, D-Link), and it is always same problem. All these cards are supported by Debian Lenny or Ubuntu 8.04.
I really like elive and wouldn’t go back to Lenny because of this wifi problem.

Thanks for help.

3.0 Task Description

Installing Crossover Linux (both Pro and Games) from CodeWeavers causes either enlightenment or Xorg to hang or crash.

When the install is finishing up Xorg/enlightenment freezes, mouse can be moved, but nothing happens - and I am unable to change to another desktop using CTRL + ALT + arrow key

The same thing happens when trying to install applications or managing bottles. Though sometimes I get an error message that enlightenment has SEGV’ed with the options to Recover or Quit.

I think it might be when Crossover tries to generate menu links for the application, but I am not entirely sure.

I am sorry to say that this used to work under Ubuntu/enlightenment.

You can download a trial of Crossover Games here:

100%
3.0 Task Description

Hi, sorry to have to report, I just tried to install (with a proven DVD download of E17 compiz) on a 2nd computer, Intel MB DG45FC. First problem was it would not recognize display resolution, I am using Mitsubishi Diamond Digital, wide screen (16 x 9) and factory default setting called for is 1280 x 768 at 60HZ—which is in listed choices upon installation, nor any other resolution including auto? This is a 64bit machine, I have the DVD installed OK, no problem, on a Gigabyte 32bit MB.

I kept trying, over and over and somehow was able to “force” installation after being given a choice to use a pre-existing resolution(?) Install completed, fine tune came up and stopped at: “module slamr does not exist in /proc/modules. Also, internet connect was not able to be made, no matter what I tried so I can make no correction through apt-get, Synaptic or .deb. I also got a notice that e17 economorph failed to install because of some file in libdecorate(?) was trying to overwrite an already existing file. Not being technically capable, I haven’t a clue.

But please, do not fool yourself into thinking the slamr “bub” has been corrected and gone away, it is still there.
