If you upgraded from 12.2, did you remove ~/.kde and purge /tmp before the upgrade?
Thanks to everyone who took the time to reply.
1; Fresh install, blew away v 10.2 with a format and changed the fs to ext4.
2: Full KDE install, incl Firefox 3.5.2.
3: Am using Slax 6.1.2 to write this, because I couldn't get anywhere with Slack 13.0. Most frustrating.
4: Sound card is a multi io async beast using the ice_1712 chip. The KDE included with Slackware 10.2 worked beautifully, now I have distortion and continuos static after a sound should have finished playing. I'm starting to think that the new version of KDE is the real culprit. Now, I know that there is a solution out there, a bit tedious.
Hey Patrick, why didn't you give us a choice of which KDE to use ?? Lots of other window managers were included, why not a KNOWN working (really working) version of KDE 3.x.x?
I've been using Slackware since v3.5 (still have boot and root disks stored away) and this release reminds me of a microsloth release. Please don't fall away from the purity of Slackware's past reliability. Please.
I know progress is inevitable, but some of us can,t afford to buy the latest and greatest every time it hatches. I'm still using an AMD Athlon 1Gb processor, also using windoze 2000 pro, still does everything required of it. Now I'll have to go back to Slackware 10.2 because I can't find the 12.2 iso's. When I look on slackware.org, the directories are still there, but all that's left are the description txts and md5 files, the iso images are gone ! Is there a secret pasture for old iso's ?
