I performed the 64 bit RC1 installation (alongside Windows 7).
Is a laptop HP Pavilion dv7 17”
Intel processor i5 480M 2,66 GHz
4 GB RAM DDR3
ATI Radeon Mobility HD 6650, 1 GB DDR3
Well... I have some problems:
1. The desktop effects. Doesn’t work. I enabled some of them - the cube too
. None of them are working! It appears a message saying something like “18 effects can’t be enabled.”
This happens in root and also in the user accounts.
I don’t know if it might be something related with the graphic card... It’s strange because is not an old one...
2. The sound. It’s a bit low. Even Kmix set at the highest level, the sound seems to be just about 50%.
I find it bit strange because the machine isn't an old one, bought it 2 years ago.
So, I gave it a try with the 32 bit versin. The same issue!
More, Just to test the machine to find out if might be a hardware problem, I tried two distros - Sabayon and the cousin Mageia (
). The graphics works fine.
So, I suspect some driver(s) missing, but I don't know which one(s).
If needed something from the testing repo I'm ready to use it; just teach me how to open/enable it.
Any help is grateful welcomed.
