Switch between drivers on start up!view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – Hello friends.I am using arch with Gnome 3 with NVIDIA GPU on my Dell XPS notebook. As Gnome shell isn't that friendly with open source graphic drivers (nouveau), I had to install NVIDIA's drivers. However, they don't support KMS. I was planning to use something like plymouth for splashscreen. As NVIDIA drivers don't support KMS, plymouth splash just takes very low resolution. (HowTos)

The error when running obmenugen --pipe means that the generated menu.xml is not in the format of Openbox Menus, or have some ilegal character for a well-formed XML file.When you run obmenugen --help, near the end is my contact email.

acpid doesnt workview story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – Update: I tried putting an echo "FINE" >> $TESTFILE at the end of file.I figured since there are no "exit" or  "exec" commands in the script, it should reach the bottom of the file at some point.It doesn't however.So maybe some other kind of syntactical error? (HowTos)
