I don't know about your other problems, but this one is most likely caused by an older version of ccsm installed with some path prefix other than /usr/ (I was the one who made that change to ccsm at the end of August and I've seen this problem come up). Try this command:

In that case, delete the directories /usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/ccm/ and /usr/local/share/ccsm/ as well as the files /usr/local/bin/ccsm and /usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/ccsm*.egg-info .

I have not seen that happen in a while now on pretty much any distro I've tried. You get this on what hardware? Sadly Firefox (and Thunderbird) scrolling seem to be slow as of late pretty much all across the board of distributions (why on earth does smooth-scrolling and auto-scrolling are so painfully slow?), I don't think this is inherently due to "Linux" or GTK, but rather how GTK is implemented and used by Mozilla for FF and Tb, I don't see these problems with (for instance) Epiphany or Galeon using Gecko as the backend.

Compiz is the first thing I always disable. Although it's running really fast in intrepid. And suspend and resume takes only about 5 second with the latest nvidia's driver.

You are my savior!!! Thank you very very much!

It's not only my hardware affected. I tried the amd64 and i386 version, on pata and sata drives and on two different machines (R50p and T61p). It's there after an update and on a fresh installation. The io problem is known since Fedora 9 or since Gutsy. There are no problem with the CentOS 2.6.18 kernel (till last update) or the Feisty 2.6.15/16. Fedora is less affected, but still there. I have installed the CentOS 2.6.18 kernel on Fedora 9. The desktop responsiveness is remarkable, the old kernel cause many problems with policykit, hal and udev.

Does anyone know if that means that tearing-free myththv playback would work with Intrepid/EAX on a 780G?

You can try to boot Ubuntu from the live cd. This won't install anything, but will let you run Ubuntu from the cd itself. If it works in a live session, it will also work in a normal session.

Upgraded, everything works great and better. I'm sticking to Linux for another 6 months
