Mandriva 2010 RC2- Stuck in Moblin


I have installed Mandriva 2010 RC2 with Moblin on my netbook. However, when using Moblin, I can't find any way to log off. I want to be able to switch between Moblin and KDE4 but Moblin won't allow it. There is no "log off" or "Shutdown" option that I can find. I have to use the command line to turn off the netbook.

Any clues as to how to log out of Moblin (and go back to KDE4)?

Thanks,
Linuxian

If you press the power button on your computer, does it bring up a menu with log-off, shutdown and such? I know Ubuntu is like that (not having a menu for it, unless pressing the power button)

szboardstretcher, I agree with you./

Have you tried to "logout" on the cli?

regards Glenn

What is Moblin?

Moblin is a Linux-based platform that is optimized for small computing devices. The Moblin project is Intel's open source initiative created to develop software for smartphones, netbooks and other mobile devices.
also have you been able to "shutdown -r now"

-r = reboot And you can use -h for halt (shutdown)

Bu8t I have no experience with Mobile devices.

Hope this give you something to look(search) for.

regards Glenn
