  1. Hi everyone! I am sorry if I have never gave further updates to this forum! So the issue I have tried to describe is a bug on xfce4-power-manager from 1.5.2. Basically in "presentation mode" power manager every now and then send dummy keystroke to keep the system awake. Everything is written in Unix & Linux Exchange. Thank you Andrea
  2. Hi everyone, I have an annoying problem using the terminal and I cannot look for a solution on google because I don't know how to phrase it. That is why I am asking here.. So basically: when I have load of text on terminal (for instance after a dmesg) and I try to scroll up to look for the bit of text I am interested in, after a random amount of time the terminal automatically scrolls down where the cursor is... Also I noticed that when xscreensaver is running, the login gui comes out without any input from keyboard. And do you know in xscreensaver there is an "elapsing time" bar that gives you more time ( the bar increase ) when you start type in? well it increase once without any input from me... so I thought I have some random input from the keyboard... but how to solve this annoying problem? I have been trying to track down the event generated with xev but it is quite difficult.. on the terminal I have temporarily solved un-ticking "scroll on keyboard press", but it is not a reasonable permanent solution ... the whole system, as xscreensaver confirm, is affected... Any idea? any particular kernel module to load/unload? thank you!
  3. Apparently I solved the issue...I skipped the sgdisk command because I was assuming gParted was cleaning the partition table the way sgdisk does...I am sure I have erased it and create a new one with gparted before start partitioning.. but apparently I was wrong.. that was the only thing I skipped and now everything is working... so.. I will mark as solved. PS: could it be a bug of gparted?
  4. Hi everyone, I am not new to gentoo or linux, but I don't consider myself an expert and I have tried to look around google for one day, but I cannot find anything.. Basically I was using Arch Linux but I didn't like it, so I decided to go back to a Gentoo-like distro.. I have installed Funtoo following the tutorial and everything was apparently fine, but at the moment of rebooting the laptop keeps rebooting... like the bootloader was stuck in a loop.. I can easily boot from usb (I am writing with the gui support of system rescue) but I cannot boot the fresh installed system.. I've used debian-source and genkernel that comes handy with the installation. My partition scheme is pretty simple : four partitions /boot , / , swap and /home.. ext2, ext4 , swap, ext4 .... I have a SSD hard disk (could be this?).. and I am using the Old style bootloader.. help =)
