I seem to have encountered an issue in the MyDSL Browser, in which when I try to update the package listings, I get a 404 error and am told to check for "gremlins in my internets"[sic]. Any tips on how to get it to work?

Hope this works with apt-get(Installer)
As the new mirror(http://damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/enabling_apt.html) on the page comes with a 404 error:
Mirror Down
As of Sun 7 Aug 2011, the ibiblio mirror is down, and attempting to install packages with the dpkg-restore script fails. Good news everyone! The mirror path is kept in a hidden opt file and can be changed with a text editor
       nano /opt/.dslrc
Change this entry on line 1
       Mirror: www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distributions/damnsmall/
and replace it with the path to a working mirror like so:
       Mirror: www.ftp.be/packages/damnsmalllinux/
If you could fix this i would love it!
Kind regards, Paul.

The md5sum of the highest numbered file in /tmp/mydsl is correct. I did a wget, downloaded and overwrote the file just for kicks and the MyDSL Browser still tells me it can't read database mydslinfo.bz2.

I get the same error as well. I wonder why it can't read.

ya i have read alot of about the powerpads, the only downside to them is that you should take your battary pack out when using it as it will try and charge the battary and run your computer at the same time which will decrease battary power in the powerpad and you cant really tell how much is left in the powerpad yes there is a little strip of leds, but for that kinda money i would think putting a usb cable on it to report the remaining battery level would have been to hard

 Also, I want to share with you the best and free substitute for Carfax  http://vehhistory.com . You can check vin reports regarding any vehicle here.

USB is usually 5 volts.  What are you using to regulate the voltage of your battery pack to that level?

DEll are now on the 9550 - presume this problem would not be an issue with the new model?

Hi Sir: Can I disable the server and let the form show as VCL application?  Is there any properties I need to adjust?  MainForm or UniMainModule or UniServerModule?  Thanks Jack Fang

The unused bit indicates that the driver isn't setting up the card, so unless something in the configuration has been messed up it looks like your chipset isn't compatible with the atheros (Madwifi) driver in DSL.

You could try DSL-N, which uses a 2.6 kernel. The software is a little less up to date than in the main DSL though. AntiX Linux is similar in some ways to DSL, you might be able to install emelfm2 in it using the package manager.

Hello I'm back

I'm affraid I have bad news.
I can't have wireless nor sound anymore on my laptop with dsl.
You where right, the atheros driver is installed and configured at boot time. Here is the output of lsmod |grep ath:
ath_pci                67484   0 (unused)
ath_rate_sample         9736   0 [ath_pci]
wlan                  138936   0 [ath_pci ath_rate_sample]
ath_hal               174608   0 [ath_pci ath_rate_sample]
What "unused" means, I don't know but, when I laod it manualy nothing changes.
My card is a bit different from yours. It just needs that driver for kernel 2.6 I guess.
For the sound card it's the same.

I have been searching for a decent OS with emelfm, xmms, and all those load possibilitys for extensions like dsl. But I can't find it.

That's a great list, particularly given you've found the minimum requirements for every distro (I know how hard that can be for some). Actually it might have been handy if you'd linked to where the hardware requirements were stated for the distros, so they could be checked as time goes on.

There are a few there that I'll be looking into. All the big screenshot images on the main page did bog down my Pentium I rather badly though. Smiley

Some Distros from my LiveCD collection that I didn't notice there:

*Milax - min. Pent. I 128MB RAM (256MB for GUI)
*CDLinux - min. Pent. Pro, 64MB RAM
*TinyMe Linux - min. Pent. 1, 64MB RAM
*Plop Linux - min. 64MB RAM - Scratch built
*ttylinux - min. Pent. Pro 128MB RAM - Designed for terminal use only (no GUI)
*Feather Linux
*You might even mention FreeDOS, given that you have some other non-Linux distros there. Along with the official live CD, there is also one spin-off distro I know of (and have been meaning to try out): Svarog386  (http://svarog386.viste.fr). The Svarog86 version  (http://svarog86.sourceforge.net/) will even run on an 8086.

The system requirements are what I've written on my CDs, and are probably out of date for many of the distros as its been years since I made most of them.

I'll probably come back and post some more later.
