The best kde distro. Pity att no hdmi sound and 5.1 for my creativ sound card works!
Therefore, I must look for another distro that works in this area.
But Rosa I have tested many times and is very good. HDMI sound I’ve never been to. I think in general att audio configuration kde is something terrible mess.

Hola a todos.
He descargado esta actualización, lo instalaré en esta semana y les cuento como me fue. Últimamente la distro no me andaba muy bien (Compaq-Presario-CQ45-Notebook-PC 4.1.38-nrj-desktop-2rosa-x86_64), así que aprovecharé e instalaré formateando mi máquina. Ya llevaba cerca de 2 años con la distribución en mi portátil. En mi máquina de escritorio funciona bien.
Una nota aparte; al entrar a Rosa-Fresh (http://en.rosalinux.com/rosa-fresh/), la página sale en blanco, he ensayado en varios equipos, el resultado es el mismo.

Mil gracias por esta buena distribución Gnu/Linux.

Hello everyone.
I downloaded this update, I will install it this week and tell you how it was. Lately the distro was not working very well (Compaq-Presario-CQ45-Notebook-PC 4.1.38-nrj-desktop-2rosa-x86_64), so I will take advantage and install formatting my machine. It had been about 2 years with the distribution on my laptop. On my desktop machine it works fine.
A separate note; When entering Rosa-Fresh (http://en.rosalinux.com/rosa-fresh/), the page goes blank, I have tried in several teams, the result is the same.

Thank you for this good GNU / Linux distribution.

    Hola a todos.

    Como comente en mi post anterior (14 de Marzo), he instalado R8.1 Fresh 64 bits KDE desde origen. Particiones: root, swap, home.
    Partición “root” y “home” formateadas.
    Instalación sin problemas, el único inconveniente esta en la temperatura. Al usar navegador web “Firefox” o “Chromium” la temperatura aumenta mucho:
    – Antes:

    Adapter: PCI adapter
    temp1: +73.0°C (high = +70.0°C)
    (crit = +115.5°C, hyst = +110.5°C)
    – Durante:

    Otro inconveniente, con el “Teamviewer”. Desde repositorio instala versión “i586”, al ejecutarlo problema con el vídeo (se des configura). Formateo equipo. Instalo versión “i686” descargado de página web “Teamviewer”, funciona bien.

    Todo lo demás que he probado, funciona muy bien. Excelente distribución. Felicidades. Espero se pueda corregir pronto el problema de la temperatura, antes que se funda el procesador. (acepto sugerencias).

    Gracias por solucionar mi solicitud de página web rápidamente

    Hello everyone.

    As discussed in my previous post (March 14), he installed R8.1 Fresh 64 bit KDE from scratch. Partitions: root, swap, home.
    Partition “root” and “home” formatted.
    Installation without problems, the only drawback is the temperature. When using the web browser “Firefox” or “Chromium” the temperature increases a lot:

    Another drawback, with the “Teamviewer”. From the repository install version “i586”, when running problem with the video (des config). Formatting equipment. I installed “i686” version downloaded from web page “Teamviewer”, it works well.

    Everything else I’ve tried, works great. Excellent distribution. Congratulations. I hope the problem of temperature can be corrected soon, before the processor is founded. (I accept suggestions).

Your system is great.
Just a great job, there are some problems with installation software
from outside repositories but your system is very solid, fast and user-friendly.
No other distro is so well adjusted to a common user by default.
I especially appreciate the fact that Broadcom WL driver is installed by default.
Great work and just keep working as you do it so far.
Best regards:)
