Re: Compiz issues and maybe a bug?

Did you make a fresh install or upgraded directly from Felicia?

Some people are having trouble with graphic drivers when upgrading directly.

Re: how do you do a fresh install?

I use 3 partitions /,/home and swap but I always make a fresh install when I wanna upgrade my system.

As FedoraRefugee said, it`s really simple to install a theme or wallpaper again. I just use my /home separed cause it`s easier to keep it organized.

Re: Two Problems- One Network, One Input

About your connection, this problem happens all the time or just sometimes? If the connection is cut and you unplug and plug the cable, do you get your connection back?

Re: Compiz issues and maybe a bug?

Which 3D graphic driver are you using? Opensource or the one from Envy? Try switching between them and see if anything changes.

Re: This may be a show stopper....

Hyperdrive, I installed OpenArena and played with it to see how my opensource 3D graphic driver would behave. I played for a couple of hours (I`m not a real fan of fps game). The performance was really good. I didn`t had any lags or problem at all. After reading post at the links you posted I was ex...

Re: Huge problems with upgrading. Cannot work!

Did you make a fresh install or an upgrade from Felicia?

I suggest you make fresh install from scratch. You will have better result this way and create 3 partitions: swap, /home and /.

I`ve seen many people having issue with Gloria when upgrading directly.

Re: how do you do a fresh install?

I always make fresh install and never upgrade directly.

I have 3 partitions. Swap, / and /home

When installing a new version, choose manually create partitions and create theses 3 partition I mentioned.
This way it will keep all your settings like themes and so on.

But it seems that many people are having issue with 3d gaming performance. The only reason I upgraded to Felicia was because of some p...

Re: Problem with BRASERO in Gloria

I`m still having this issue with Brasero. I can`t copy CD/DVD.

I don`t wanna install another app just because of this. I can burn CD/DVD with no problem using Brasero.

Is there anyone having the same issue in Gloria?
