I'm running on a 2.4.21 kernel, and with xfree 4.3 (same problem with xfree
4.2) ... I tried to update everything, but nothing better with the new versions
... The only things that are better : when I'm running knoppix on live-cd, the
apm with kde 3.2 is running well. If I install it on the harddisk, it crashes
while trying to standby. I looked at every files in /etc, and they are exactly
the same ...
Can it be a problem with the power management of the HD ? Or Maybe I don't have
enough swap (but I Have more than 700 MB, and 256 MB of RAM) ?
I installed a aurox and it worked ...
And with the newest version of knoppix (live-cd always) : at the beginning the
apm works just fine, but if I open something heavy such like the openoffice
then it crashes while it goes to standby ...
That's all I know, I just regret not to be a hacker, I would like to know when
it crashes, to know why ... Very strange ! And very annoying on a laptop.
Vive le libre, et vive knoppix !
