Some more testing:
* I tried out the KWin desktop effects:
- the good news: The effects work nicely on this hardware (r200_dri).
- the bad news: Some effect changes crash KWin (SIGSEGV). Once it restarts
automatically, the changed effects are applied just fine, but it shouldn't
segfault in the first place. A change as simple as disabling desktop effects
crashes it (whereas enabling them doesn't). Changes in the widget style effects
crashed it too, so I wonder if it's the "updating system configuration"
which crashes it.
* For some reason, the restart and logout options in the menu didn't work.
(They just did nothing. No clue as to what the actual problem was.) I had to
Ctrl+Alt+Bksp and then use the restart option in KDM to be able to reboot into
my regular Fedora 8 installation.
I attempted to do the install to hard disk and failed. I was trying to install it
on a USB attached drive and got the following error each time I tried:
"An error occurred trying to format sdb1. This is a serious problem, and install
The drive was previously partitioned using gparted and sdb1 is a 100MB partition. I
noticed that as the error was being reported that a "recently plugged devices"
window popped up, so I assume that the USB connection is getting lost when attempting to
format it via anaconda.
KDE 4 is pretty cool and works well on a dell inspiron 9400 with intel wireless, dell
bluetooth and ati mobility x1400. Both wireless and wired networks connections work
perfectly, correct 1920x1200 resolution.
