Not sure if I am, and since the only way to run it again is to kill and 
restart it with the '-vvv &' options , I'll wait for the next reboot, which 
is coming at some point today, because if I restart it without a working 
knotify4, the sound results are all chopped up.  knotify4 goes away shortly 
after the boot because 10 minutes later its still hogging one core of my 
phenom at 100% so I kill it.  But that is also true of the distro kernels.

I am finding enough wrong with mandriva that I'm considering bailing for the 
*buntu camp, or if I can survive till F13 is final, maybe that, the beta is 
working on my lappy including the 3d stuff.  MDV's dkms is busted, ccache's 
installer dates from 2005 so it doesn't work, makes a kernel build take 2 
hours on a 4 core phenom and a host of other quibbles, like an almost 
complete lack of expert assistance from its "expert" mailing list (english 
version), yadda yadda.

Expert support on this list is the one shining star in this otherwise dismal 
sky.  Thank you very much.

Cheers, Gene
