The process should be a lot quicker now, so let me know.


That fixed it... :mrgreen:

1. Installed NEW .deb
2. Used the new DDM to remove Nvidia
3. Rebooted into Mesa driver.
4. Used NEW DDM to install Nvidia.
Sucess. No halts, lockups. Worked perfectly, about 5 minutes..

Schoelje,
i was thinking about this PAE thing lately: in lmde we already saw that the i486 kernel won't ever acknowledges more than one core (i have still to test in the other side of mint :lol: because as far as i know Clem used a straight 32bit kernel to circumvent the PAE option ubuntu took and assure maximum hardware compatibility)
this way i think the only workable option is to detect the use of the i486 kernel and give the users a one-button-easy-to-install-the-PAE-kernel

Currently this is DDM's logic to detect a multi-core 32-bit system:
  1. Get the number of cpu's:
    Code: Select all
    cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep processor | wc -l
  2. Get the kernel release:
    Code: Select all
    uname -r
  3. If #cpus is more than 1 and kernel release is 486...
  4. You can install PAE

I suppose that should do the trick?

but and this viewtopic.php?f=61&t=106426&start=320#p626247 it will recognize more than 1 core if we are running i486. so it will never prompt to install PAE

I must be getting old...
Well, maybe we should use dmesg to tell us whether or not pae is possible:
Code: Select all
dmesg | grep CPU

[ 0.000000] ACPI: NR_CPUS/possible_cpus limit of 1 reached. Processor 1/0x1 ignored.

The last part is a tell-tale that there's another CPU that could be used...

I'm seeing the same thing. I thought it was looking like only one CPU was being used. (I have an Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T9300 @ 2.50GHz.) Should I be concerned about that?

G'morning BostonPeng :wink:
very concerned i would say :lol: better have 2 of those (one for you and one for me) :mrgreen:
nahh, if you are using the alleged 32bit kernel (that actually is a 486) that's normal; check these 2 posts http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=106426&start=320#p626257

Morning ZZ. Damn, I had seen those posts but completely glossed over them without realizing what they were saying. No wonder my laptop seems a tad slower the last several months. I haven't had much coffee yet this am so I'm going to ask what's probably a stupid question: Should I simply go into Synaptic and install the 686-pae kernel? This is what I'm showing form dmesg:
Code: Select all
$  dmesg | grep CPU

yep, with that processor i would install PAE (image+headers)
that's what Schoelje is trying to automate in ddm.

On my way to install them now.

@Schoelje:
I remembered I still had the debs for the ddm and welcome screen on my drive so I installed them to get a screenie of the original report it gave me.

I'm noticing this version of the welcome screen shows the Mint KDE logo while the debs I downloaded Monday show the green Mint logo.

Would it break things if I used debian-welcome rather than welcome-screen? I really like having the blue logo since I'm running the KDE version of LMDE.

I managed to get the PAE kernel image and headers installed but saw errors about the dkms.config file.

Code: Select all
Examining /etc/kernel/postinst.d.
run-parts: executing /etc/kernel/postinst.d/dkms 3.2.0-3-686-pae /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.0-3-686-pae
dkms.conf: Error! No 'BUILT_MODULE_NAME' directive specified for record #0.
Error! Bad conf file.
File:
does not represent a valid dkms.conf file.

Silly me forgot to run sudo nvidia-xconfig before I rebooted and got dumped to a terminal login prompt upon reboot. I did some digging and saw that both cores were being recognized and used and found instructions to remove and reinstall nvidia-kernel-dkms nvidia-glx from the terminal (with a reboot between the steps). I'm back up and running KDE and dmesg shows a much different response than it did earlier this am.

Code: Select all

ddm still doens't seem to recognize that I'm on a dual core machine but I am using both cores again. Thanks for the assist ZZ. I'm writing an article for my site showing how to ID the issue and resolve it, complete with getting the Nvidia drivers working again.

I've changed DDM to install the pae kernel:
http://www.schoelje.nl/lmdekde/packages/device-driver-manager_0.1.0_all.deb

It does not deal with BostonPeng's findings.
What would be a sound solution?
  1. Move /etc/X11/xorg.conf when it exists
  2. Is there a way to install the dkms for a new kernel (so, not the one you're using now)?

I think the first option is the safest bet: even though you have both i486 and i686 installed on your laptop (well, I have), the system always boots with the i686 kernel, even if you grub select i486 :o


@BostonPeng
You can use welcome-screen and mintwelcome together, they don't interfere.
The logo is found here: /usr/share/linuxmint/common/artwork/logos/scalable.svg
The KDE logo is installed by mint-artwork-lmdekde and yours is probably mint-artwork-lmdekde
You can check that with:
Code: Select all
dpkg -S /usr/share/linuxmint/common/artwork/logos/scalable.svg

Good Afternoon, Schoelje... :)

This is not a real priority issue as you previously mentioned. Probably not even as issue at all..... :lol:
Just thought to mention it, as 'Boston Peng' did, and I confirm.
Its just an appearance thing. The Welcome Screen and DDM work well.... :wink:

The text does not fit well in the Welcome GUI.
You mentioned it would be hard to fix. So no problem.
Probably dependent on the font we use.
I am using. DejaVu Sans 10

Damn, I forgot I had a newer version in my Downloads section. I have the older versions in Installers and completely forgot to install the updated version. D'oh! It didn't matter though because even with that package installed and running kbuildsycoca4 ddm doesn't see I can run PAE, unless the fact that I'm already running PAE confuses it (or maybe I need to reboot before testing again).

I used Startup-Manager to disable the PAE kernel while I was fixing my issue and once the new kernel was playing nicely with others I used SUM to use it as the default. I also have the delay set to 2 seconds so I don't have to wait so long on boot.

Ooh, so if I can get the KDE Mint svg big enough I can just replace the icon itself. Sweetness! The hunt is afoot! 8)
