[solved]Re: xfce4-display-settings segfault in Virtualbox (bug?)

Probably appears to have been related to virtualbox.
After a few updates to Virtualbox, display behaviour and response of xfce4-display-settings dialog is as expected.

xfce4-display-settings segfault in Virtualbox (bug?)

I use the SysResCD to verify that VirtualBox setup works. Boot up the CD image, startx, and there it is. However, every version of SysResCD after 5.1.2 I have had display problems. The latest release (5.2.2) will boot up fine and start an xfce window normally. The display will resize to 1280x768, bu...

Re: Sourceforge difficulties

Nothing I could do would enable downloading in the browser. I ended up resorting to command line downloading with wget.
Not thrilled with Sourceforge ideal of "ad revenue". It doesn't make for a friendly user experience.

I would encourage Project Dev's to consider a backup download mechanism.

Re: Sourceforge difficulties

Changing mirrors and direct download link doesn't work for me.
I was hoping it wasn't just a browser issue.

Rather frustrating. I'll try to resolve on my end.

[Solved]Sourceforge difficulties

I was able to download the previous revision 4.9.0 without any problems. I received notice about the update of SystemRescueCD to version 4.9.1. However, no matter what I try Sourceforge downloads no longer work for me. I do not have problems with other download pages with my Firefox browser. I would...

[Work Around] Screen Resolution Bug

I can confirm on booting SystemRescueCD with the steps described above that the Desktop will come up as 1280x1024. On a monitor this shouldn't be a problem. However, in QEMU (VM environment) the window is sized at 1024x768 in the console. When going to a desktop the horizontal is resized correctly t...

Re: Screen Resolution Bug

If possible boot native on your machine and see if works as expected in case of a video card querk of some kind. That was my next step to try after "playing"/educating myself with funtoo install. I'm using AMD bulldozer 6core processor w/ Saphire (AMD/ATI) Radeon HD 6450 card. I don't recall having...

Re: Screen size matters on functionality of Qemu guest

Not to necro-post.... I ran across a similar situation this weekend using SysResCD in QEMU. I found that the default for QEMU was to use PS/2 mouse/keyboard. This caused the mouse to do all sorts of very weird things making usage of SysResCD almost impossible. I found that if you change the QEMU mou...
