  • Mouse scrolling erratic
    hviaene on Mon, 04 Aug 2014 13:13:59 +0000

    OpenMandriva 2014 in Virtualbox 4.3.14 On Mageia4.
    I have a Logitech USB Wheel mouse connected. Scrolling through a window (browser, text, whatever) only works when I scroll slowly.
    If I try to use it at normal speeds, the contents of the window first scrolls normally, but after a few ticks, the window often jumps back to its beginning position. If I insist on doing so, very often, the scrolling action makes the display jump between the 4 desktops, even when the cursor is definitely within the window that has the focus.

  • Unable to start 3.18.5-nrjQL-desktop-1omv with nvidia

    After recent update to kernel 3.18.5-nrjQL-desktop-1omv, the boot doesn't go well any more. There's a problem with nvidia server although no specific message is displayed.
    Attempt to boot in recovery mode and start kde4 reveals Xorg problems.
    Attempts to reconfigure using XFdrake didn't help.
    Now, booting with driver nouveau!
    Here, nvidia GTX 650.

    The alternative to boot the old kernel with nvidia do work well.


  • Copying large amount of files results in crash with kernel 3.18.5
    an00bi on Wed, 25 Feb 2015 02:03:44 +0000

    Copying a lot of files using both Dolphin and "cp" command from or to an USB external hard drive, results in system crash after some minutes.
    The system freezes, data transfer led on external devices (tried more than one) remains on (no transfer) and I am unable to open a tty, terminate X with ctrl+alt+bckspace or use REISUB (i enabled it back before because it is disabled by default). All i can do is hardware poweroff.
    Due to the nature of error, i have no ideas on how to provide an event log.

    Switching back to older kernels resolves this issue.
