    I don't really find KDE to be all that bad as long as you disable or remove unneeded things like Neposuk (err, Nepomuk). It does take longer to start than other DEs, but I think that is worth it to...

    This new kernel doesn't boot on one of my older test-boxes (a Pentium4 HT system). I get a kernel panic complaining something about sysfs and internal_create_group. Sadly, I cannot see the entire...
