Don't feel bad. I noticed mine were set to zero after the forums changed to phpBB. I don't know what they were before, but I don't think they were zero. At least they're back up to 5 now. :-)

Kudos? We don't need no stinkin' kudos!

Rep did not transfer over. We manually added it, one at a time for those who had a number over a threshold on MepisLovers. The others, below that threshold, remained at zero. It was a matter of the labor involved. If I am not mistaken that threshold was 50.

HI All,

I'm running the release candidate (RC 1 with updates) on my HP Pavilion DM4t laptop. I've noticed that whenever I turn on certain KDE desktop effects my entire system becomes unstable. Is this normal? I wouldn't think so. When I turned on one of the screensavers it would cause my machine to freeze and I'd have to cycle the power.

I'd be happy to try to replicate these issues if it will help...

Chris

No it is not normal. What card and driver are you using, and are you using xrender or OpenGL? Depending on the driver OpenGL will work best, if the card and driver support it.

I'm not sure how to answer your questions. I don't think there's a graphics card, it's an intel Core i5. Not sure about the renderer. if you tell me how to ascertain I'll get a better answer. No idea about drivers....

Use inxi -G. It will tell you what graphics card you are using, you do have one whether discrete or integrated, the driver and the rendering information.

To get inxi refer to this
