Well, as from yesterday I'm now using KDE4 and while it takes some getting used to I must say it has been pleasant so far. I felt a mixture of excitement because I wanted to try out the new stuff I had been reading about for months now and at the same time I had a rock-stable, bug-free desktop that ...

Allright! You might want to stay away from kde upgrades for the time being though, I don't know about the repositories you use but kde4 is trickling slowly into debian "unstable" and new packages might break old ones or cause other issues until the whole of kde4 has made it from "experimental" to "u...

Have you tried to first remove the package before doing your dist-upgrade?

Which 3rd party repositories do you use? And what's your problem actually? Do you want to remove kio-umountwrapper-kde3? Do you want to perform a dist-upgrade and it doesn't work because it can't remove kio-umountwrapper-kde3? Upgrading kde on a debian-based distro can be quite risky at this very mo...

Yes of course it could be a glibc bug but even if it is, it can't be the same bug as 6 years ago, maybe a similar one but not that bug from 2003. :?

2003 huh? :? Didn't notice the date, since we had a glibc upgrade not too long ago and the slowness started at that particular point in time I assumed that ... and of course now that you point me to the date of the bug report ... :roll: Gonna set that straight over there as well, thanks for pointing...

LOL - just visited Void Main's Beatuiful Site

Read the guestbook and noticed someone talking about an IE identification remark.
I never noticed anything like an IE identification remark so I installed IE from Crossover and connected to the site again.

Here's what I saw:

Void's site with IE
Void's site with Iceweasel

Firefox slowdown

After a recent dist-upgrade I started to experience really long delays in domain name resolution. For each webpage I wanted to load Firefox first stayed a couple of seconds on e.g. "Looking up google.com" before going "Connecting to google.com". It was very irritating, once you get used to having a ...

Netbook

I've been toying with a Point of View netbook for some time now. While Linpus lite is ok, it's not more than that. Plus the way it's configured you don't have the root password so you can't really dig in deep and make changes wherever you want to ... So today I wiped the drive clean and installed Si...

I did notice not everything gets updated even with a "yum update" after the upgrade and I had to manually upgrade some packages that were giving me trouble. I also have to say that Fedora 10 has been a much bigger pain in the butt than the last few releases. Are you guys forced to use yum nowadays,...

I still haven't bought one because I can't seem to make up my mind. :D there's tons of these thingies on the market now, ranging from 7" up to 10.2", with SSD or SATA hard drives, I just don't know. I have a 10.2" with 160GB SATA HDD at home now for testing purposes but 10.2" is kinda big as far as ...

Oops, sorry, I just noticed that you already tried to install that package :roll: You say mplayer plugin does not show but apparently that gecko-plugin thing replaces it, sure you have looked for it but you didn't see a gecko-plugin or similar listed in about:plugins did you? Otherwise, look in your...

Just looked on livna.org and found what I looked for on this page . The package is called mplayerplug-in, so you should be able to yum install mplayerplug-in if the livna repository is enabled on your system. Edit: I wonder why this very same package is called mozilla-mplayer in the debian repositor...

Can't you install the plugin with yum or apt-get?
mozilla-mplayer should be the package you're looking for.
