  1. [SOLVED] Re: Sony Vaio PCG-FX190 locks on shutdown sometimes

    I have no other ideas for you. Yes, turning off DRI makes videos unable to play, but for my needs suspend is more useful than videos. Apparently YYMV with the settings.

    Every once in a while I do...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Sony Vaio PCG-FX190 locks on shutdown sometimes

    I still had some problems with the machine locking after resume. I updated the 99quirks file on my page (referenced above). I have not had any further problems, I highly recommend you update. As for...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Sony Vaio PCG-FX190 locks on shutdown sometimes

    I tried
    xset dpms force off and the backlight won't turn off. I don't have that problem with suspend or hibernate though. I have a page at...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Sony Vaio PCG-FX190 locks on shutdown sometimes

    I think I fixed it. DRI requires a depth of 16. I changed the depth to 24, which disabled DRI, but I haven't had the lock up yet. So either the depth of 16 is the problem, or DRI. I tried either...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Sony Vaio PCG-FX190 locks on shutdown sometimes

    The i815 does not have kernel mode setting support (KMS) so this isn't the issue. I tried with the option anyway, no difference.

    Tried that but gdesklets is broken on Lucid. I tried the sysmonitor in screenlets, but it locks up if the wireless goes offline :(

    Maybe I'll use screenlets and write my own...

    Yes, I am seeing the exact same thing. I did not find a solution either :(
  15. Re: Improve (potentially halve) login time by using readahead

    Yes, the previous instructions should work. After you do updates or things change, you may want to run with " profile" in the boot sequence again.

    Please let me know either way if it works. Last...
  16. Re: Improve (potentially halve) login time by using readahead

    I have a separate /home partition. The script already handles that.

    Simple steps:

    1. Save the script I posted into /etc/X11/Xsessions.d
    2. Reboot but type "e" (edit) on the grub line before booting. Add " profile". This will cause the boot and desktop login...
  18. Re: Improve (potentially halve) login time by using readahead

    I should've done some more testing. For some reason the sub-shell would not continue after 'xmessage'. I updated my previous post so I think it should work now.
  19. Re: Improve (potentially halve) login time by using readahead
