- Firefox tooltip (hovertext) unreadable..
i changed my composting type from xrender and native to opengl 3.1 and raster, after yesterday's update which contained kde config updates. after that i am experiencing this problem firefox tool-tip is dark, text is not visible at all. after going through some forums i found that changing color scheme or or changing tooltip background helps. it did solve the problem but only for that session after reboot or logout once again the issue recurs. does anyone else experiencing this problem? or does any one know the solution please help me. (OS openmandriva 2014). Kde apps are working without any problem
- Hard Crash Caused Corrupted File System (Solved)
Had a wild ride last night. My main hd installation of OM 14 crashed, completely locking up. This has happened before but this time it corrupted the file system. It did that a month ago on the thumb drive installation too, I haven't been able to fix that one yet. Needless to say having both computers unusable gave me a little panic.
I shut down the system hard and booted M 2011 which ran fine. On the Ubuntu help page I found the commands to fix file system errors, which I will link below.
I ran the command fsck.ext4 -p -f /dev/sda7 but it gave an error that it couldn't do anything automatically, and to remove the -p from the command. I tried a few more variants, and decided I needed to check for bad blocks. fsck.ext4 -f -cc -c0 /dev/sda7 seemed to work well, it found all sorts of errors. I manually told it 'yes' to auto fix everything it asked to.
Thinking I was done after running it a few times I shut down and restarted. During the startup it found all sorts of errors, and seemed to be taking forever and failing to do a lot of the needed things. Giving up I hit the power button but it was not responsive to it or any key combinations. Really giving up I hard shut it down, and ran 2011 again.
Shockingly enough today I figured 'hey why not try it again' so I let it boot OM14. Everything loaded fine and it's working as if nothing ever happened. This rather confuses me because the first restart after fixing the file system didn't work, but the second one did. Any ideas why that would happen?
I mainly posted this as a bit of a tutorial for anyone else who may have to deal with this. I searched the OM wiki but it didn't have the information, which is why I went to Ubuntu for the info. I know this is probably elementary stuff for most of you, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to add this to the forum since it isn't in the documentation for any other newbie to the command line.

For example, in the forum ubuntu-fr (French) ,ubuntu & kubuntu-forum.de (germany), openmandriva forums italy, france, spain?
I put the same topic in these places to see the quality of response to compare the differences.

What is your opinion about it?
Forum users from germany gave me links that go to sites Germans,users french from ubuntu-fr forum gave me links that go to French websites.
Why did they do it?
Why not send links that go to English or Russian or Dutch sites?
What are the languages that the computer professional should know?
Where I'm wrong, please correct me.
