DSL has come such a long way in such a short period of time. With this latest release I finally decided to toss Windows and switch full time to DSL as my operating system of choice. It does everything I need and in my humble opinion is very stable.

Thank you to the entire DSL team and community for providing such a great operating system!

John/Robert -

Did ltmodem support get backported to this release for the 2.4.26 kernel?

I can't get this release to recognize my usb hard drive at all. All the other dsl releases with the 2.4.26 kernel I had to use the noapic boot cheatcode for it to be recognized but no dice this time. I tried the new waitusb cheatcode too (together with noapic and without). I guess I'll have to stick with 2.1b since it works pretty good with my laptop but I'm really looking forward to the release with the 2.6 kernel.

Yes, ltmodem works the same way as before.

It is the same kernel and modules, no change there from  the last 2.4.26 DSL v1.5. What is interesting is that the prior 2.4.26 versions, including v1.5 cdrom did not include ehci-hcd module upon booting. One had to use the usb boot floppy. This release calls the ehci-hcd module in the same fashion that 2.1b during the boot process.. You may want to try the noapic cheat code or possibly pci=bios
