Posted by jls legalize on Mar. 13 2006,20:15I made 2 .dsls of teamspeak for voice communications over the net, u can find them < here >
Posted by jls legalize on Mar. 15 2006,10:37I've tested teamspeak on amd k6 2 and and k6 3 and it works.
It doesn't work on Pentium 1 233.
On amd athlon 800 the voice is too fast and the pitch too high.

Posted by mikshaw on Mar. 17 2006,03:23I just noticed that the LFP fonts don't seem to work in fluxbox styles. I tried swapping in the iso8859 versions to see if that was the problem, but they still don't work. This was a test done in flux 0.9.14, which has changed its font handling, but i haven't tried in flux stable yet. The terminus and artwiz fonts work, so i have no idea what the problem would be at this time.

Posted by desnotes on Mar. 27 2006,00:31Opera852 installs and works well. After installation I set the homepage and logged into my google account and her on the forums. Shut down and re-booted and all configs were save. Also no error emssages or unusual things happening during surfing. Success!
Posted by desnotes on Mar. 28 2006,23:01I tried installing icewm.uci and it was able to mount correctly but when rebooting I received the following error message:
/opt/icewm/user.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
Error is not recoverable: exiting now
Is there anything I could have missed?
Posted by mikshaw on Mar. 29 2006,01:41There is no user.tar.gz in icewm.uci. I receive the same message from other uci packages that also do not have the user file.
It looks like /etc/init.d/dsl-config tries to install the user file without first checking to see if it exists.
Posted by jls legalize on Mar. 30 2006,01:45I've upgraded azureus dsl to the latest version ( 184.108.40.206), it requires gtk2 dsl and java uci/dsl.
U can it download < here >

The "U" in UCI means an embedded user.tar.gz.
Recall the history of DSL:
First I made the .ci extension and there was a separate user.tar.gz file that also had to be loaded.
Then I extended the definition to UCI when the user.tar.gz was contained inside the ci.
Posted by mikshaw on Mar. 30 2006,05:11Does that explain the tar error, though? I was making an assumption, but i think it's correct. If it's caused by something in my UCI instead, i should look into it further.

mozilla seamonkey seems to need gtk libs. Tried to get it going with gtk0705.dsl but this 233mhz pc finally got stuck and I had to reset.
Posted by doobit on Mar. 30 2006,21:18I've been using the amsn0.95-gtk.dsl from jls legalize and it works great. Eliminated a couple of bugs that were in amsn 0.94. I haven't tried setting up a webcam yet though.
