1  Damn Small Linux / Release Candidates / Re: New Release Candidate: 4.11rc2 on: October 20, 2012, 09:00:26 PM
I think that I got some answers, after testing both the release candidate and the stable one.
I'm guessing that that the kernel has something to do with this, since I never seen this behavior in other linux flavors with 2.6 kernel + (but I have not tested the non-dsl flavor).
Ok, here goes - when using a usb mouse or keyboard, you must have (in my case. might be different for you) uhci usb disabled.
Now the differens is this way, some motherboards let's you choose is you want usb legacy enabled or disabled.
The differens is that on way you can have usb boot and keyboard, mouse support enabled, the other way you can only choose one.
As stated, I found a workaround - disabled uhci support, which worked (but it resulted in painfully slow usb stick)

Well, I tried to install on Virtual box and that went fine Smiley
I did, however ran into issues when tried out apt-get.
Are the repositorys out of date?

There is a bug in this version, when using unetbootin.
After DSL boots it hangs when the message "scanning usb devices" appers.

This bug is not present 4.4.10, since unetbootin works great with this version.
4  Damn Small Linux / DSL Ideas and Suggestions / Will the 2.4 kernel be backported with drivers from the 2.6 kernel? on: October 07, 2012, 12:28:53 PM
Hope that I post in the right place, please feel free to move this thread othervise.
I think it's great that DSL has started to be maintained again and it puts a smile on my face that it's using the 2.4 kernel since I am Freesco fan as well which uses the even older 2.0 kernel Smiley

Now, I remeber all the times I've tired DSL and it was very often I got stuck because DSL didn't have a driver for the network interface.
So my question is really if there any plans to upgrade the kernel in the near future, with the latest drivers.

Thanks in advance!

EDITED:

After some digging, I can se that the kernel has a never kernel , 2.4.31 instead of the older 2.4.26 - so I am guessing that it has a lot more to offer Smiley
So far, DSL runs fine on my virtual box but will check it out som more, again - great work Smiley
