Mandriva 2008 2 Problems


when the screen saver starts. the computer hangs when I touch the mouse to get back to the desktop. maybe for 10 sec. maybe 10 minutes. Also when I loaded the 2008 live CD over 2007 spring after installation a bunch of folders dumped on my start screen. I can not move or remove from my home screen.

You might need to make sure all the packages installed correctly.

The smart package manager has a fix function, as well as a check all installed packages function.

First, update your rpm data base.... urpmi.update -a You need to be root!

This may be what you need.

To move the icons from the desktop, open konqueror in superuser-mode (file manager) select star/Tools/System Tools/File Manager Superuser -Mode.

That will require root password, from here navigate to /home/(user-name)/Desktop/

From here as root you can move things around, it might be a good idea to change the permissions for those files back to (user) while you're at it.

Hope that gets you out of trouble.

The freeze is a known problem. Either switch off 3d desktop or then change the screensaver.

Probably you need to change permissions for the folders in order to delete them.

I had the screen saver hanging up problem. After a fresh install (for other reasons), I haven't had that problem since.
