I just updated from ML2006 to ML2007 using the repositories from easyurpmi.zarb.org, doing something like this:
add sources from easyurpmi.zarb.org
urpmi --auto --auto-select
everything seems to be good, except that I cannot turn on 3D effects. The 3D effects tool tells me that my system does not support 3D desktop effects, but I don't believe this is true.
I installed the packages dkms-nvidia and task-3ddesktop. In the control center, my graphics card is listed as unknown(generic). When I try to configure it, there are several nvidia choices, the only logical one seems to be GeForce. When I choose this card, it says "There is a proprietary driver available for your card which may support additional features. Do you wish to use it?". When I select "Yes" it tells me to restart the X server. When I do so there are no changes.
As a side note, I could not add the "updates" repository, getting the following message:
examining synthesis file [/var/cache/urpmi/partial/hdlist.updates.cz]
unable to parse hdlist file of "updates"
examining synthesis file [/var/lib/urpmi/synthesis.hdlist.updates.cz]
problem reading synthesis file of medium "updates"
found 0 headers in cache
removing 0 obsolete headers in cache
wrote config file [/etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg]
unable to update medium "updates"
I have tried several different repositories all with the same result. Are the two problems perhaps related?
thanks in advance for any help.
