I'm new to linux so i'd be grateful if you can bear with me. I have been trying to run DSL from a flash drive but i cannot access the net. i have broadband so i don't know why this is not connecting.

Can anyone please shed light on what could be the problem?

Just installed DSL current version a couple of hours ago. Fairly certain I did it right. . but maybe not.  Hard drive install.  Everything seems to want to work except accessing online. I'm ethernet connected to router, but can't ping anything but myself.

ifconfig looks fine but maybe not .. I am posting this from an Android tablet  need to minimize typing.

Setup/Net setup/netcardconf
interface  eth0
DHCP broadcast. Yes

If I change to no

Interface  eth0
Address IP blank
Broadcast  blank
Gateway blank
Nameserver (s)  and blank.

Ifconfig only lists 'lo' .. no ethernet.
The imprint on the desktop says Host:  box   and an IP address.  If anyone can tell me where to go from here, I thank you in advance.

So far, I really like DSL.  Came off of Lubuntu for it. It is just right for this old machine.

Thanks CNK,

it's working perfectly,

it runs with a slight performance hit at 16Mb Ram. but runs at full speed on 32Mb Ram. Great Work DSL and CNK

If you're trying to install using apt-get, that system is rather broken with DSL. There is no Debian package of iPerf for Debian Woody (3), the version of Debian with which DSL is compatible, however there is one for the following version "Sarge" (http://archive.debian.net/sarge/iperf). To get that to install, you would first need to install the "libc6.dsl" and "gcc1.dsl" extensions from the MyDSL respository, then use dpkg (with the "--force" switch) to manually load the Sarge package.

The only dependency I'm not sure about is libstdc++5 as I can't tell exactly what version comes with DSL, but I think you'll probably be lucky. It's possible the ".dsl" packages aren't actually required either, if the packages list on the DSL website hasn't been updated for the last releases.

If that doesn't work, or you want the latest version, then you'll have to build from source. There aren't many dependencies with this program, so that shouldn't be too hard, but check if it mentions any incompatibility with kernel versions as early as 2.4 which is used by DSL. See the wiki page about making a "tar.gz" extension for a description of the compiling process.

Has anybody managed to install iPerf on DSL.

I'm having dependency problems.

can't install/update libc6, libstdc++6, multiarch-support, libgcc1.

has anybody managed or even tried to get iPerf running.

if so it would make DSL the perfect companion to run along GNS3/VMware and other testing projects.

Thanks really
Ley tell you why i want zdoom por zandronum un muy xbox
Zdoom and zandronum (and lot of doom launchers) are the ones that permit
Run pk3 files,the awesome brutal doom is a pk3 that only run by zdoom and similars.
Xbox have a lot of doom launchers(doom legacy,odamex,doom3)but all of they only soports wad files no one can run pk3 files.
And your welcome
Your xbox is a extraordinary tool and you will note that when you estar to
Install a whole of apps, emuladors, ports and more tools
Dsl 2.2 is the x-dsl based port

And finally.
I try compile the zdoom 1.22 and start
When line go m_fixed.h.......... Stop
Thanks world

Just for the benefit on anyone wondering which path to take in a similar circumstance, here are some notes from today's attempt to get my Brother MFC-7340 printer working in DSL. It only took me an hour, that's pretty good for setting new things up with DSL. Note that this method does not use CUPS, I haven't tried using CUPS in DSL, though it is available from the MyDSL Repository.

The instructions here on the Brother website (http://support.brother.com/g/s/id/linux/en/instruction_prn3.html?c=us_ot&lang=en&comple=on&redirect=on) do actually work for DSL (once you eventually find them...).

The one exception is that dpkg has to be run as root, and the /var/spool/lpd/MFC7340 (the name of the last directory will depend on your printer model) ends up being created without user permissions. This means that when you try to print, lpr will come back with something like:
MFC7340@box: printer 'mfc7340', chdir to '/var/spool/lpd/MFC7340' failed 'Permission denied'
The same error is also generated when the "lpc status" command is tried, which normally shows you the status of configured printers.

To fix, simply use chmod to make the directory for your printer open to all users (as root):
chmod a+rwx /var/spool/lpd/MFC7340

And don't choose this moment to forget that folders need to be marked executable, like I did at first!

Now printing should work from all applications, and directly from the command line for text files with "lpr":
lpr mytesttext.txt

One note about the MFC-7340 Driver (V. 2.0.2-1, 25/06/2008, http://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadlist.aspx?c=au&lang=en&prod=mfc7340_us_as&os=128):
I've found that on some long or complex files, the printer seems to stall on a page and coat the rest of that page with random vertical lines, before continually spitting out blank pages until the print job is canceled at the printer. This also happens in Knoppix 7.2 (on the same PC) where I have the same driver installed via CUPS, so I expect it is a driver problem. In any case it happens quite rarely. I couldn't find any alternative drivers that worked when setting it up in Knoppix.

After this problem occurs, I've found all print jobs are printed blank until the printer is reset (turned off and on).

Looking at this wiki page (http://zdoom.org/wiki/Compile_ZDoom_on_Linux) about compiling Zdoom (I haven't checked zandronum, but presumably it's similar), it looks like compiling in DSL may well be possible, but you'll need to compile some dependencies first.

Most of the dependencies that are not optional will need to be compiled by you because the correct versions are not included with DSL, and they are not in any extensions in the "MyDSL" repository.

gcc 4: no version this late is available pre-compiled for DSL
cmake 2.4: isn't in the MyDSL repository
fmodex 4.26.36: isn't in the MyDSL repository
SDL 2.0.3:   no version this late is available pre-compiled for DSL

Some of these dependencies will probably have dependencies of their own that must then be compiled first if they're not already in DSL or the MyDSL repository at the correct version. It's possible that some dependencies will not be able to compile with the old Linux kernel that DSL uses (version 2.4.31).

Many of these dependencies for dependencies will be covered by packages in the MyDSL repository, "compile-3.3.5.uci" will likely contain many, even though the version of gcc that is included in it is too old to be used to compile Zdoom. This page shows the base packages already included in DSL (http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/packages.html). - Actually, I'm not sure what version of DSL the X-Box port was based on, so that page may not be 100% accurate if you're running X-DSL.

If you find that a dependency can't be installed in DSL due to the Kernel problem, you could try older versions of Zdoom that might be more compatible with the old software base available for DSL.

Finally, in case you don't know, there is the "prboom" version of the Doom engine available for DSL in the MyDSL respository with the file name "doom.dsl". Make sure you get the one for DSL, not DSL-N.

By the way, thanks for reminding me about the Xbox version of DSL, I'll have to try modding the broken Xbox I've got one of these years...
