Hi guys,
I solved partially the bug of hpet by using hpet=disable en grub
options in /etc/defaults/grub.

Now I'm getting two problems. The first is that when I try to Save As
in OpenOffice Writer, I don't see the text labels in the Save As menu.
There are three check boxes, and the text for them isn't visible.

Then, I'm getting a second ( worse ) bug with the Kde WiFi manager.
When I login, the widget at the task bar identifies all the WiFi
connections, but I'm able to connect just to the ones without

I'm able to connect to open non-protected networks, but I'm not able
to connect to the majority of them that are protected. The wifi card
works perfectly, and even it works with encrypted connections in other

The card uses the broadcom driver. Also, when I use :

$ iwlist scan
lo        Interface doesn't support scanning.

eth0      Interface doesn't support scanning.

eth1      Interface doesn't support scanning.

It doesn't recognize the available networks. However the kde applet
does, but it doesn't connect to password protected networks.

Any clues or ideas?.
