Upgrade ROSA R3 LXDE to R4
Notebook with GPU NVidia GeForce 7300 Go

We found a similar problem earlier that week and I have prepared a fix. Our QA team is now testing it (see http://bugs.rosalinux.ru/show_bug.cgi?id=4557). 

You can try it too, if you like: add one of the following repositories and perform an update.

For i586:
http://abf-downloads.rosalinux.ru/rosa2014.1/container/2316332/i586/non-free/release/

For x86_64:
http://abf-downloads.rosalinux.ru/rosa2014.1/container/2316333/x86_64/non-free/release/

If it does not help, we'll investigate the problem further.

Besides that, please upload the information about that system to us using our hw-probe tool, if you don't mind. The tool will collect the info about the hardware as well as copy the relevant system logs automatically.

To collect and send us the data, you can install hw-probe from our official repositories on that macine and then run it (as root) as follows:

hw-probe -all -upload -id Nancy-Satellite-A100

Here the result oh hw-probe

Good to know. And thanks for the probe!

The update has been published, so I am closing this bug.
