If you can disable Pulseaudio. That has been a pain for me since getting my current PC.

It was the xine browser plugin which was causing the crash, now removed. Pulse works fine on my Mandriva system with no problems at all and its not installed on PCLinuxOS. I now have sound back on PCLinuxOS after the update by editing modprobe.conf to ensure the on board sound comes up first.

Now it will go on the back burner until I have more tme to play and see how things work out.

I've been looking for a new distro as I am a bit concerned about the future of Mandriva.
Look no further - http://slackware.com/index.html As an experienced Linux user it should be ideal.

Cheers,
Peter

Peter this is a bit old now, KDE 4.4 is too old to run the latest digikam and I would have problems with some other stuff I guess as well.

only just found this post  :-[

Hope you are getting on ok now with the full version, with rolling up-dates there are sometimes a few hic-ups
like your sound problems and with the new 'plasma' desktop update the other week, it did warn on the forum that it would wipe your desktop icons.

 If you like the full version I would use a lighter version like 'MiniMe'  http://www.pclinuxos.com/?page_id=180
or openbox-Bonsai-2010.11.iso     http://melodie.tyruiop.org/pclinuxos-core-cli-and-children/
http://mypclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,2833.0.html
With these you can build what you want in them via 'synaptic' package file manager.

Good luck.
