Re: New to XFCE, a few questions

I just looked at k9copy and it looks like it would load a lot of kde packages to the system if I would install but I don't see it removing anything important. Now for WINE there will be some work to get it going, I have it installed with directx, It's not going to run Doom 3 or anything :lol: It's ...

That was what I thought. But I can only get them to be "clone". I cannot use 2nd monitor as extended desktop. I had no problem while I was running LMDE. Clone for me, is useless.

New to XFCE, a few questions

I was on LMDE for sometime, when the last gnome update happened, it completely #%$@ up my computer. Long story short, I tried XFCE on live DVD before, and decided to make the switch. I made a fresh install (wiped out LMDE after backup). I'm still having to adjust to XFCE interface (I think once I ge...

Re: Safely remove / Unmount / Eject Volume: NTFS Issues

We could also nuke the "Unmount" option and just tell people to use a terminal instead for doing that (or Palimpsest). I don't know if that's screwing over existing users too much though (I'm personally fine with it)." The better option, I believe, would be kill the "safely remo...

Re: Kernel 2.6.39-2-686-pae panics on unmount of external hd

@gosa, Well, I don't know if the script would be easier, but certainly changing that offensive GUI option would be better option if it is possible (which I'm sure should be possible). At this stage, all the evidence points to the desktop/file manager, not the kernel. Maybe it's time to change to som...

Re: Kernel 2.6.39-2-686-pae panics on unmount of external hd

After this long time, and no one has taken any responsibility on this issue, has anyone worked out at least how to take the defective GUI option out for good? I mean, back to not long ago, simple working "unmount" was perfect. It was not hard to teach new users (just say unmount is Linux w...

Re: Kernel 2.6.39-2-686-pae panics on unmount of external hd

The problem is not Gnome or the Shell. It is the Linux kernel 2.6.39-686-pae. Do you have any information? I'd like to find out what went wrong. So far, my own experience and searching other places, all pointed to a few very specified areas: 1. It seems only related to NTFS. 2. It only happens if u...

Re: Kernel 2.6.39-2-686-pae panics on unmount of external hd

If Gnome shell is found to be the source of the problem, I'm sure I will switch to KDE. First there was retarded Unity, then stupid Gnome3. This madness must stop.

Re: Kernel 2.6.39-2-686-pae panics on unmount of external hd

Whatever the problem is, it is not fixed. i just tried after both FUSE and udev update. Now, rather than waiting the "official" fix, there should be a easy solution. Since unmount from terminal works fine, just the GUI "safely remove" would cause the kernel panic, it is clear the...

Re: Kernel 2.6.39-2-686-pae panics on unmount of external hd

Latest report. I was suspecting the problem was to do with NTFS formated drive. So it might be NTFS-3G, FUSE , or udev. There was update to NTFS-3G, I was hoping it may fix the problem. But, nope, it didn't.

Re: Kernel 2.6.39-2-686-pae panics on unmount of external hd

Debian has a minor kernel update. I updated to the latest kernel, and the problem is not fixed yet.

Here I attached the screen (I took the photo from my phone) if anyone interested, and hopefully has a way to fix it easily.

Re: We need more testers to the new incoming repo (how-to)

I'd like to help. However, I have questions. Before I start, I must clarify the reason I have LMDE, is to test the stability and usability first, particularly to see if it is time for me desktop with relatively new hardware. The are also couple of small issues I'm seeing some improvement over the ro...

Re: Kernel 2.6.39-2-686-pae panics on unmount of external hd

I do not have this kernel panic on my system. Maybe it could be related to some hardware configurations ? Are you using 64bit or 32bit kernel (I use 2.6.39-2 AMD64)? The kernel panic issue is widely spread after 2.6.85 kernel. It is not only Debian. It seems also not tied to particular hardware at ...

Re: Kernel 2.6.39-2-686-pae panics on unmount of external hd

I'm here to report that the workaround posted on the ubuntu and debian forum works (the problem is wide spread). Only problem is you have to manually umount.

I guess sodu umount is not so hard.

Re: Kernel 2.6.39-2-686-pae panics on unmount of external hd

Same problem here. I'm still searching for fix. I have 2.6.39-2 kernel, and from the search result, this is either kernel or one of the patch (some reported stock kernel doesn't have this problem) to kernel by distro. There are reported fix (have to recompile kernel with couple of simple changes) wi...

Re: How can I make a new updated install image

Thanks Kendall, will try that. Right now I'm waiting for upstream patch to fix the kernel issue. The kernel panic issue with unmount external USB drive is really make or breaking deal (since the patch is easy, I don't see why it takes so long for Debian to release it).

Re: How can I make a new updated install image

I guess I need to explain a little clear. I'm not looking for backup or "clone", but more like making my own re-spin of Mint ISO. I mean updated version.
