I use KDE now myself (just recently switched from gnome thanks to getting hooked on Mint 9 64 bit KDE)...and i would want the KDE 64 bit version of Mint Debian which hopefully will eventually be offered...I hope by then they got the fonts to look as good (or better) then ubuntu/kubuntu...
Mint 9 KDE looks great right out of the box with no tinkering at all...
Hmm..never looked at Sid...might have to check it out...to just to play a bit...that's a rolling distro? is is stable? How about getting codecs for it...does it come with what you need or do you have to add it on and how do you do it? I know a bit off topic but just curious....
+1 for KDE and 64bit versions, that would be awesome.
2. Rolling release
3. Lovely desktop environment
Doesn't it sound like a distro of dream?:)

The partition type for my fat32 data partition used "fat32" as the partition type instead of vfat.

I would say the future is far from certain for sidux

To solve this problem I had to remove the xserver-xorg-video-nouveau and xserver-xorg-video-nv packages then run sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg. I restarted X and all was well. I don't fully understand why this works as the removed packages aren't intel related.
shayney wrote:Just to follow up the side discussion on sidux, the new name has been announced as "aptosid"
I have to say in my opinion it is an awful name and sort of looks like a jumble of letters in one of those anagram puzzles in the newspaper.
When I first saw it I also read it backwards to see if there was some clever or humorous intent to the name but it seems not.

I don't know how to do any of the stuff you suggest. When I get some time (if I don't get frustrated and re-install Helena) I may poke around a bit and see if I can figure it out. I saw a thread elsewhere about Compiz not working. There was some terminal commands given as a solution and a similar GLX error was returned. Compiz isn't working on my machine either. Wonder if this is all related.
sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg-video-nouveau xserver-xorg-video-nv
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
apt-cache policy libgl1-mesa-dri
sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dri

I'm wondering if this needs to be made into a bug report or if this is something that is just a symptom of a combo of my n00bness/hardware. I'm sure I can sort it using the tools that have been provided.
If it is a true bug, on the other hand, I'm wondering if I should just wait for the official patch.
