KDE 4 on Fedora 9 Alpha : Shutdown Don't Work, KDE 4 Very Slow; NO Internet
Last modified: 2010-12-07 13:41:48 EST
Description of problem:
1, Just installed Fedora 9 Alpha (using i386 DVD) and the first thing I've
noticed is, KDE 4 is very slow and unresponsive. (I had the same experience with
KDE 4 in Kubuntu 8.04 Alpha 4)
2, In KDE 4, when I click > Leave > Shutdown > the screen turns blue to black
and stays at "Logout" or "Cancel"
3, Also there's NO shutdown option in GNOME (using > Terminal > poweroff for
now). Under "System" I can ONLY "Log Out" no option to shut down / restart.
4, Internet is not working either. At the system boot I get this:
ipv6tables: Applying firewall rules. ip6tables-restore v1.3.8: unknown
error occured at line: 8
try 'ip6tables-restore -h' or 'ip6tables-restore --help' for more info.
bringing up loopback interface. RTNETLINK answers. Invalid argument.
Failed to bring up lo. [FAILED]
Bringing up interface eth0:
Determining IP information for eth0... done. [ OK ]
5, Also during installation I didn't get any option to create username either so
I'm logging in as root only. (installation did ask to create a password for root
I guess I can create username now but I'm wondering did anything go wrong during
installation or what? (I haven't got any error message during or after installation)
As previously, Fedora 8 installer did ask to create user name & pass during
installation and the Internet was working right after installation too.
nVidia was detected by the installer and it sounds working alright.
Machine: P4 2.8 GHz, 2.0 GB RAM, 128 MB nVIDIA GeForce 5200.
I didn't get any problem / errors during my previous installations of Fedora 8
on the same machine. And KDE 3.5.8 worked like a charm.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 9 Alpha : KDE 4
Steps to Reproduce:
1. is probably your graphics card driver, what driver are you using? 2. is the
only one which sounds like a KDE bug, the other things are bugs in other
components. This needs at least 5 separate bug reports.
See also bug 431819.
Can you please also file a bug against anaconda for the part "5."?
