Too long! Any way to shorten this time? Someone mentioned Blueman bluetooth searching for signal. My pc doesn't have bluetooth but the control for it shows just an empty window, i.e. maybe it's disabled.

Thanks. I tried to bring up Terminal but got Konsole instead. I was able to enter the first command, but after that there was no input prompt.Instead there was a bunch of entries saying to delete the comment hash, i.e. make a command, but I couldn't make it work beyond the deletion. It didn't respond to Enter. Is there no plain Terminal on KDE?

Installation / Re: after installation slow

Have you tried a different hard drive? (Is it possible yours is failing? Or the cable is bad?). Do other distros do the same thing? (Bodhi Linux, Antix are lightweight ones that come to mind and could be tested).

I've seen weird problems due to not verifying the .iso checksum. Some bit corruption lets it boot the livecd desktop, but the install will be bizarrely afflicted (or vice versa; it's random weirdness). Or, have you run memtest86? I've had bad memory that Windows never touched in a way to be a problem, but a linux distro did. Memory was the absolute _last_ thing I thought it could be, and memtest86 found it in 30 minutes. (So, I'd rule out the checksum and memory, as foolish as it may sound.).

Edit the file:
sudo nano /etc/default/gruband set screen resolution as you like, from:
#GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480to, for example:
GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480or
GRUB_GFXMODE=800x600Then save the file and update grub:
sudo update-grub

Introduction / SparkyLinux install
Last post by 1Leenie - August 21, 2022, 06:04:41 PM
I just installed SparkyLinux 32bit Openbox on an old RCA Cambio W101CS. 2gb ram 32gb hardrive. So far all i can say is WELL DONE!!! I've tried too many distros that did not work. My problem is the system boots into portrait mode and not landscape. This is awkward with a keyboard attached. I can turn it with xrandr, but it does not stay on reboot or display the boot splash in landscape. Where can I look for help on this forum?

Running a live system from a USB flash drive is always faster then from HDD, it's normal.
