Thread: How do I fix an Unstable linux 11.2 desktop?

  1. #1

    Cool How do I fix an Unstable linux 11.2 desktop?

    Is there any way I can install an older version of kde like the on on suselinux 10.1 because the newer desktops are very unstable on my computers. stuff closes, stuff freezes temperarly, fortunetly nothing perminent has happened yet but its been threating to abolish my computer. Ive had other cases like this end up making me reinstall my operating system and Id really like to just fix the problem before it happens. page down is overrun with this horribly lagging scroll.
    buttons look like there clicking occasionally and again it closes programs and has logged me out once already.

    Also I think its java that I am using when editing stuff about my accounts because whenever I start to do stuff like that the desktop gooey really makes it unapealing, and i like to edit my accounts and stuff. when I installed 11.2 the second time I selected other for type of desktops to install and I didn't see a kde 3.5 or anything whoch sucks because I think suse linux 10.1 or something had that option but there are still alot of really horrible mights.

    tell us about your hardware, is it strong enough to run 11.2 or do you
    need a lighter distro?

    KDE3 is not available with 11.2, i _think_ it was available with 11.0
    but i am not sure...you might want to look at Gnome or other...KDE3 is
    *history*

    and, like caf said: sounds like you need to work on your graphics
    drivers...tell him about your hardware and he knows what to do..

    I needed a lighter distro. also Since you guys are here I wanted to say that I was hoping the next release you could add the option for a lighter distro in the installation. I hope ill never have to download or install another operating system in my life actually but Im not sure thats gonna be a possability.

    Hey I wanted to ask you guys if you also could make a minimul installation with a lighter kde option and if you could make sure apache2, midnight commander, a decent ftp server, dns, a decent personal mail server that uses your domain, and in the minimul kde kcontrol and a network monitor that tells you when people are enter passwords and connecting to your computer. again i just wanted to cross my fingers and recommend a Minimul suse installation.

    sounds like you need to go to http://susestudio.com/ and just pick and
    choose the bits and pieces until you have exactly *The openSUSE* you
    need!!

    Not too long ago someone made up a Suse 11.2 with a KDE 3.5 desktop for
    somebody. I think it may still be available on open build service.

    Otherwise back off to 11.0 or 11.1 as both have KDE 3.5 available.
