Damn this will take another hour. But I have to go to bed... AAAARRRRRRGGG what should i do
Awesome, great work, I'll give it a test spin sometime tomorrow
Downloading openbox i686 ... Thanks corenominal
- closed account - gone to better places -
downloading it, too (both) . great work and thank you corenominal
I had to add a line to the boot (acpi=off) and I am in the livecd environment right now, but how can I install this alpha from the livecd environment?
Otherwise, awesome build! Keep it up!
Thinkpad x120e 8GB DDR3, 1.6Ghz X2 - Laptop/Netbook
AMD Athlon X2 OC'ed to 3.33GHz, 4GB DDR2 2TBx2 - Desktop/Seedbox
I've been on holiday ... but, #! A2 is downloading as we speak.
Install order for me:
First virtualbox, second Eee, third desktop and finally if all goes well, I'm replacing 9.04 on the desktop.
If it's anything like Alpha 1, I'll be at the replacing 9.04 part very soon...
Thank you Muppet army!
Oh, and you too corenominal.
Is there a way to update from Alpha 1? I'm running apt-get update and dist-upgrade, but there's nothing to upgrade.
29 minutes to go!!
i think i'll try the upgrade first with those packages (good time to learn to examine the content of files) and try the alpha 2 as livecd
I installed the openbox version with USB Unetbootin and very much impressed. The USB installation is a snap: everything is automated and prior issues are all gone. Everything took less then 5 minutes. The welcome script is also very pleasant. I enjoyed the cairo composition. This alpha 2 is nicely improved and continues to be refined. Now I am posting from this new installed version. Corenominal this is an awesome job as usual... Thanks.

I am almost wetting myself with anticipation!!!
(Oh, wait a minute; that sounds really bad...)
Phillip, I hoist a glass to your inestimable Linuxness...
("Linuxness" Is that a word??? Ah, crap - who cares!)
Good job, mate!
Linux - because a PC is a terrible thing to waste...

WoW! I love the new script at first boot.
Install is fast, it took longer to burn the CD than it did to install on my laptop HD. Im about 10 minutes away from installing it on this desktop now, waiting for 2nd laptop to finish installing.
Thank You for a nice smooth distro!!!!!
And thanks for finding a way to improve what was already perfect!

trying the live version
first thing that cough my eye: the cairo compositing
now to sleep and hope tomorrow to star examining those files and see how to mix them with my actual configuration.
THANK U CORENOMINAL
Alpha 2 report after 30min of usage and being very sleepy but happy
* I'm testing openbox-amd64
* Unetbootin to usb-stick: failed multiple times (all of them after re-formating usb)
* dd to usb: success
* Boot: success
* Love at first boot: success!!!
* Cairo compositing: wonderful (I didn't like the compositing effects but I think I'll keep that)
* Dropbox: installed and working great. (By the way, how can we share a folder other than the default dropbox in home? I know that with nautilus this can be done, but in thunar?? perhaps with a custom action if it's possible?)
* I was surprised by the fact that both monitors, laptop's and external, were both identified during startup and set to twin-view, although without nvidia drivers I'm stacked to 1024x768 resolution instead of 1280x800 and everything look odd. (What is the reason for that? a new default xorg file or something?)
* Finally I gave a quick look at themes which are WAY too many!!! Most probably I'll remove them all except the statler's and 1 or 2 that I like. It's really nice to have them though...having choices is good!
Really Great Work corenominal!!!
Thank you once again!
EDIT: I forgot to mention that I'm putting cb-fortune to autostart.sh

One little good news about Acer Aspire timeline series ( 4810t is the one tested) : The adjustment of brightess was problematic for this group of laptop. Current kernel in squeeze is not solving the problem but updating the kernel to experimental along with statler alpha2 is solving the problem with no other configuration necessary.
I found one tiny little issue in the xfce version, and it happened on all 3 of the PC's Ive installed on so far. The keyboard layout was on gu or UK symbols or whatever its called, but it was simple to go into keyboard options and change it to US. It didn't happen in alpha 1 so I dunno if its something I did or thats just how it turned out.
