Re: Springdale 8.3 and KDE

by desertcat This is addressed to those who use both Springdale Linux and KDE. Springdale Linux is on my short list of distros to consider. In some post I read that Springdale still uses KDE 4.x.

Re: Startup Errors I'm trying to figure out.

No, SVM mode is for enabling virtualization. You are probably right but here is what I found: 1. Enable VT-d for Intel CPU If you have an Intel CPU, the IOMMU technology is called "Intel VT-d".If you have an AMD CPU, the IOMMU technology will be called IOMMU. If it is not already done, enable the S...
