The man page (http://ftp://ftp.alaska.edu/pub/sois/man/drop_caches.html) indicates that "drop_caches" was only included in Linux Kernel V. 2.6.16 and later. DSL uses Kernel V. 2.4.31.

I don't know if there is another command used in earlier Kernels, but I doubt it.

DSL-N uses a 2.6 kernel (I can't remember if it was above 2.6.16, I think so), that could be another option depending on your circumstances.

You shouldn't have any problems reading pendrives; if you do, just mount it manually.

DSL is now installed on a Dell Inspiron laptop. Runs nicely enough. Now I will need to copy those files I downloaded to either a USB stick or CD. Not certain if DSL can read a USB stick. This will be an interesting experiment. Hopefully it will go well. I will find out in the morning. I am planning to use this computer to run my 440 repeater.

Well to try starting Firefox full size, open a terminal window and enter the "firefox -width <pixels> -height <pixels>" command with the <pixels> parts near the resolution you have set with your display.

When you work out the window size you want, type "sudo nano .jwmrc" to edit the file that controls the DSL menu. Find the line for Firefox, and after "/usr/local/bin/firefox", add the -width and -height commands with your desired pixel counts. Then save the file by pressing Ctrl-O and close the window (or press Ctrl-X to return to the command line).

If you want an icon on the desktop, make a script by entering the command you used in the terminal ("firefox -width <pixels> -height <pixels>") into a text editor and saving it as something like "firefox.sh" in the "/home/dsl" directory. Open a terminal window and type "sudo chmod a+rwx firefox.sh", then right click on any desktop icon and select "Create > New Program Icon" from the menu. Enter the path "/home/dsl/firefox.sh" in the window that opens and click create.

Now the icon should appear on the desktop and start Firefox at the size desired. You can delete the old icon (right click on it and select "delete"), and set the same name and picture for the new one by right clicking on it and selecting "Options" from the menu.

Thanks for the advice

It's solved.
In Audacity I enabled the "input gain" line to record.
So, when I open Dmix and, in the upper left corner I choose "input gain" to push the "rec" button there; it works
