"feature only available with HAL"


I can't access my spare hard drive anymore. Konqueror opens, but displays a "kio_media_mounthelp" error message that says, "Feature only available with HAL." What is HAL?

Hardware Abstraction Layer. There's probably a HAL package for your distro.

Nope, it's FAT32--I format all my Windows partitions to FAT32 to avoid issues with Linux reading/writing to them.
And I heard of MEPIS 7 only recently. Downloaded it last night.

Yeh try Mepis 7 in Live CD - See if you like it then it install it, Remember to use the "Keep Home Directory" Option.

Mepis is 2 years more recent than the 3.x series

Then pop into mepislovers.org - they are very helpful over there

I beg to differ: My MEPIS/KDE 3.3.2 is much more stable than my MEPIS 6.0/KDE 3.5.3 -- the latter needs rebooting (or at least an X restart) almost as often as W2k.

Yes, eventually 7, but on a VM.
