What file needs to be edited in the older version to fix the 2 problems which i presume is a mysql and an ibilio link issue.  I am presuming that its a file that needs some editing or a number of files.

Interesting Dave, what was the last version of DSL that worked for you?  Also, did you try to run xsetup.sh and set the mouse to USB?  The hardware detection should be exactly the same as DSL4.4.

John:  this is another issue that is quite common on the IRC channel as well.  most of the time it relates to an ALPS or Synaptics touchpad but i have seen issues with other  non-laptop mice as well including the Microsoft 4000 wireless mouse which is suppose to be a standard USB HID device.  All the issues i dealt with of this kind where related to DSL 4.10.
3  Damn Small Linux / HD Install / how to install onto a HDD from one machine to put into another on: August 05, 2012, 02:24:53 AM
The Wiki use to contain a walkthrough on how to do this but i belive that the page has long dissapeared after a hacker got into the wiki.  I was wondering if anyone here knows the steps to install DSL onto a drive in one computer (Full Install) and then put that drive into another computer. 

Here is an example of a scenario in which this would be useful in...

some one has an IBM thinkpad 560.  the issue is there is no optical drive or floppy built into the computer.  the Hard drive though is a standard IDE drive and could thus be removed and put in another IDE capable computer that has a functioning Optical drive.

Thank you in advance.
4  Damn Small Linux / User Feedback / Repository issue on: August 05, 2012, 02:20:34 AM
a few years ago Ibilio updated their site and migrated i presume to new servers.  ever since this update the MyDSL program ceased to communicate with the ibilio repository.  this was the largest complaint outside of the wiki getting hacked by spammers. 

The only way i saw around it was to tell people to manualy download the packages they wanted and use the MyDSL program to install them or do it via command line.

I dont know what the issue is and i am curious as to what it was and what needed to be fixed and what needs to be fixed or edited on the older editions of DSL and DSL-Not.

Holy Snap!  there is activity!  a updated forum with my old user deleted!  a New DSL version to boot!  this is all exciting news!

John did you fix the repository issue with the current stable?  it seems DSL was unable to link to ibilio using the MyDSL program.  this was the largest complain when it came to the IRC chat channel.  it seems Ibilio had changed some things around and did some updates which is around the time that pretty much all the repositories ceased to work.

Another issue is even though DSL is based on a very old version of Debian there has been some issues with people getting apt and dpkg working in DSL.  this is especialy notorious when one tries to install GCC via apt.  any ideas?
