I think those breakpoint cheats only work when booting a Live session of MX14. Is that what you're doing? Or are you trying to check on a harddrive install? Now it's not really the same as single stepping or breakpoints, but you could use the Scroll-lock key or the Pause/Break key (I forget which) t...

From a cold boot; My wifi indicator light turns on, booting makes it to grub, I select MX and hit Enter; my terminal begins the boot process and about a 3rd of the way in the light goes out. Then just before my desktop is fully rendered, the light comes back on. Is there a way (for me) to single st...

PS On the way, the bit about "...Germany taints kernel" was a bit worrying! I've seen the "... taints kernel" stuff before when using the nvidia driver, I think that's required to keep Stallman ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Stallman ) happy. (are you sure it said "...

If you booted to the desktop, <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<F1> and/or <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<F7> will toggle you back & forth between a console and the KDE desktop. Booting to initlevel 3 also works. I would use a wired connection instead of wireless if you lose the wireless connection when not in X. In the wiki we hav...

Sometimes you might have to run sgfxi more than once. At least it's easy to do.
You shouldn't need to do that with Mepis 8. The radeon driver wasn't a kernelmodesetting (KMS) driver back then, so you don't need to blacklist it to let you use the fglrx driver.

Not sure where you glean the numbers from in your link! In your M8 install take a look at the /usr/share/xserver-xorg/pci/radeon.ids file. Anyway, so the situation is hopeless? It looks hopeless for the Lenny version radeon driver. Is the propriety route as described in Post # 347976 http://forum.m...
