    Thanks Jackal

    Probably going to have to put that little project on hold for some time... got other things I really need to get done first. It's one of those things I'd like to look at, but it's finding the time

    Well, nothing ever did fix that issue, although I'm pleased to report that since updating to version 2.0.0.4 it's been solid as a rock. It was obviously a bug in Firefox 2.0.0.3.

    It kinda grows on ya huh?

    What options have you found to be to your liking after the past month?

    One of the things that has impressed me the most is that, the upgrades to Beryl actually have made it better over time. No breakage on this end at all. Wish I could say that about every package upgrade.

    Actually, my comments above were more related to CentOS in general, as this kinda morphed into a general CentOS thread, but...

    I do still like the spinning desktop cube as an alternative representation of virtual desktops. Simply more intuitive than the conventional 2D virtual desktop model. I think the most useful feature by far is the Alt-Scroll wheel transparency feature that you mentioned above. Genuinely useful and nothing else really like it I've seen before - thanks for the great tip

    I must admit, I haven't been running Beryl 24/7 - maybe about half of the time. I've found it to be fast and stable, other than sometimes when switching window managers to turn it on or off - some slight screen anomalies, but that's a really minor thing. I'm still hugely impressed that most of the features run extremely fast on such lowly old hardware (GF4 MX440 in my case), albeit with a proprietary display driver to get decent 3D acceleration.

    Hey Jackal,

    I found a really nice alternative to protectbase called priorities:

    http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities

    Very easy to set up and allows you to assign a priority=N number to each repo - then no repo will update a file from another repo with a "lower" priority.

    It basically achieves the same thing as protectbase but is more flexible in that you can also protect or prioritize 3rd party repos against each other.
