aewhale_(AEWHC2-9105 : 23/03/07 04:45 PM : Incident created
-   I had been running the Mandriva 2006 Server with my computer just fine. I recently upgraded to Mandriva 2007 and had the desktop blowup. I mean that the window controls are gone and the page does not save the number of dsktops if you attempt to change them.

Any suggestions dhort of using my Hammer?

-   Hello Sir,

Are you trying to use the 3D desktop? Try to disable it, open a terminal
console as root and type:

[ root@localhost ]# drak3d

Choose to disable 3D support and restart the system.

Best Regards

-   This did not work on the 2007 installation. I have reverted to the CS4
install, and it is working.

-   Hello Sir,

Ok, so you are going to remain with CS4 for now?

Best Regards

-   Hello Sir,

Ok I will be closing the incident then. Just note that if you ever want to
try to do it again, you might consider trying it with a new user, some user
settings from different versions might have caused the problem.

Best Regards

Tiago Souza
