  • Unable to start 3.18.5-nrjQL-desktop-1omv with nvidia
    adhefe on Wed, 11 Feb 2015 14:00:58 +0000

    After recent update to kernel 3.18.5-nrjQL-desktop-1omv, the boot doesn't go well any more. There's a problem with nvidia server although no specific message is displayed.
    Attempt to boot in recovery mode and start kde4 reveals Xorg problems.
    Attempts to reconfigure using XFdrake didn't help.
    Now, booting with driver nouveau!
    Here, nvidia GTX 650.

    The alternative to boot the old kernel with nvidia do work well.


  • Lag between clicking the mouse and the actual result
    DeMus on Sun, 01 Mar 2015 08:50:40 +0000

    Last night I installed 2014.1 (64bits) and although the system runs well, looks great, I have a lag between a mouse-action and the action following the mouse-click.
    When I click an icon on my desktop it takes around 2 seconds before I see that the program I want to use is started.
    When I click a link on a web page, it takes around 2 seconds before anything happens.
    I did not measure the 2 seconds but it must be something like that.
    My computer has an Asus M5A97 R2.0 motherboard running at 4.4GHz, a AMD FX-8350 8-core processor, 16 GB DDR3-1866 ram, and 2 Barracuda 7200.14, 1 TB disks.
    The lag only happens now while using OpenMandriva, I don't experience this with other distro's.
    Who has any idea what this could be?
    Thanks for all your help.

  • Mouse scrolling erratic
    hviaene on Mon, 04 Aug 2014 13:13:59 +0000

    OpenMandriva 2014 in Virtualbox 4.3.14 On Mageia4.
    I have a Logitech USB Wheel mouse connected. Scrolling through a window (browser, text, whatever) only works when I scroll slowly.
    If I try to use it at normal speeds, the contents of the window first scrolls normally, but after a few ticks, the window often jumps back to its beginning position. If I insist on doing so, very often, the scrolling action makes the display jump between the 4 desktops, even when the cursor is definitely within the window that has the focus.
