crashes


I've been experiencing alot of crashes with MDK 9.2, and Opera and Mozilla . I have an XP-MDK dual boot set-up. Also the tool bar on KDE disappears. Any ideas?

mdk9.2 is pretty buggy

unpatched, I get more or less constant crashes on logout and crashes if I try to switch desktops

there are a fair amount of patches available, the kde-base, kde-common and XFree86 patches seem to sort 90% of these problems
with all patches applied, things are pretty much sorted

there are at least 200MB of patches, so it's a two nighter on 56k, but worth it

i tend to use mozilla firefox which is just SUPERB, and only use other browsers for real audio streaming
but it's likely that the problems are mdk related and not the browsers

check the mandrake home page .... there should be info on where to get patches, and how to install them

oh yes, and MDK should have an update tool in it somewhere (though you'd need to be root to run it)
