Having just spent a nice few days moving over to FC12 I thought I'd add
the final touch and install control-center-extras so that I could regain
focus control over my windows. (Why was this removed to an optional extra I wonder?)
The result of doing this is that I now get millions of instantiations of the
Gnome File-Manager and everythib=ng eventually grinds to a halt.
My way out of this was to break into basic screen mode with CTRL/ALT/F1
then modify /etc/inittab to force the system to start up in mode3 instead of
mode5 and reboot. This then gave me the oppotunity to 'yum remove control-center-extras'
but this hasnt fixed the problem.
I had previously tried installing the ndiswrapper stuff, and so was running with
kernel 126.96.36.199-127.fc12.i686.PAE, but rebooting with the original kernel
(188.8.131.52-174.2.22.fc12.i686) makes no difference.
Does anyone know a fix for this or have I got to do a complete re-install?
