Device Driver Manager error message
« on: December 14, 2013, 06:34:28 pm »
I've just installed the LDXE version of Sparky.  When attempting to run the device driver manager from the LDXE menu, I get an error message: DDM doesn't run in live version. Use ---force argument to run DDM."



Sparky is installed on my hard drive, so not sure why I'm getting t his message.  Can anyone assist?

It's a third party application and I don't really know why it doesn't recognize the environment well.

Try to run it in a text console as root with --force option.

Nothing is easy as it looks.

i found adding the "--force " argument to the command in the menu item item properties to do the trick took few seconds to come up though ....
