I'm totally a newbie to DSL and know only little about Linux but learning little by little Smiley
I just downloaded the DSL-VMX for VMware Player. It runs not on vers. 6 but only on vers. 5 of the player. I run the DSL 4.4.10 in the player without any issues.

Anyway...Im seriously missing a guide on how to get flash working on DSL. Anyone out here that can help?? I know there is the Gnash also...dont know which one people here would suggest i install.
Im just going to use DSL for a playing a game..and maybe more later on as i learn about it  Smiley

BTW: Did John leave the project again?? ...I have noticed some of his last posts were from 2012.  - DSL is a really cool project!!

Ah, it is a very good read, I'm very easy to understand.

It's that I never knew I must get it. I read I'm getting a lot more knowledge.

A new version of knoppix just came out in the last few days, and I believe it uses kernel 3.15.x. Maybe forking a previous version and trying to compile the latest longterm 2.6 kernel to work with it would be best? If we got that working, we might be going somewhere. I'm just hoping to see DSL leap to it's glory days again, it's the distro that got me into Linux in the first place.

Thought I'd brought out my CD pile for this purpose once before, looks like I did a similar list in this post (http://damnsmalllinux.org/forums/index.php?topic=838.msg1441#msg1441).

The ones I missed this time around are Plop Linux and TinyMe Linux. Both are on the fringe of Linux distro development, but I remember Plop is meant to be built from the ground up, so it could work where a lot of others don't (or the other way around).

Anyhow, good luck and do report back your results.

OK, thanks, I have tried the latest release of Puppy Linux and it didn't want to play.  I will have a go with DSL-N (although it appears to be 8 years old: dsl-n-01RC4.iso 2006-Aug-24 13:42:41) and Tiny Core and see how I get on.

Ah, right. I'm not into modern phones, so I thought you were asking how to connect your phone to the internet, not to a computer.

My mistake.

How can I join several gnumeric (or csv)  files in into a single gnumeric spreadsheet with command line?

In the settings on your phone there should be a 'tethering & portable hotspot' item (or something similar -(on my Sony Xperia it is under wireless & networks -> more ->tethering & portable hotspot.

This will set up a portable wireless hotspot using your phones data connection. The phone will generate, or allow you to specify a hotspot name & WPA key. Use this name & WPA key to connect using the wireless connection from DSL as you would to any other wireless network.
