Which Pentium III processor/mobo combo is it?  I have an Intel 440BX running a Tualatin Pentium III via a Slocket, and everything is working flawlessly, so it is to be something very specific to your hardware.  Mine is using the original ATI Rage Pro video card, if that helps.

this new Version is great and works fine on my Asus EEE 701 as Live-Version.

Installing on internal drive via USB-Stick (unetbootin) doesn't work, since I get always the error "GRUB Hard Disk Error" on startup. Lilo-Boot doesn't work ether...

Any ideas? I'm quite a linux-n00b btw...


That is actually a bug DSL has inherited by being based on an older version of Debian (correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's Woody).  For whatever reason, older Debian iso's wouldn't install properly from a usb using dd.  I believe there was a windows program you could download that would make them boot successfully, but your best bet is to just burn a live cd and hook up an external usb CD drive (that's how I installed it on my original EeePC).

John, I just thought I'd post and say good job.  I used DSL for quite awhile up until 2010 when I thought it was dead, and I'm going to try and get back on board (I'm laid off from my job, but I'll donate if I ever get called back...ah, this economy).  Anyway, I just wanted to say that the new RC is very usable and as to a browser I have a few suggestions.  I'm not that sure as to how much DSL has retained from Debian in terms of easily porting the Debian LXDE packages, but it seems to me that it wouldn't be that difficult to implement a lot of features native to LXDE; it's really been coming along, and I think it rivals XFCE at this point.  Midori is really advancing by leaps and bounds, and it' s a good middle ground between firefox and dillo.  Also, lxine player isn't ready yet, but down the road it may be worthwhile to add a video player of some kind based around LXDE if it becomes stable.

The current RC is a damned good OS, I'm using it on the first PC I ever bought, an Intel BX mobo with a 1.4 GHZ Tualatin (via slocket) and 768 kb SDR and it runs flawlessly.
