Posted by cbagger01 on April 15 2004,02:59FYI,
If you want to use the Synaptic install script with DSL version 0.6.3, please grab the latest version of the script here:

Older versions of the script will not work with DSL 0.6.3
Posted by caulktel on April 16 2004,03:21John, The bash_profile script seems to be broken in .6.3. I have been putting my modprobe command for my opl3sa2 sound card there everysince you first provided it, but now I can't seem to make it work. Got any ideas?
PS I think it has something to do with it booting directly to the primary user account, which I really like that option.
Posted by roberts on April 16 2004,07:13Best to put them in /opt/bootlocal.sh
Otherwise, when you do not use multi-user login you actually boot via root, so that means you could put them in .bash_profile for root. But it is better form to put in bootlocal.
Posted by caulktel on April 16 2004,15:31Hey Thanks Robert,
That worked great, I will make a note of that for future reference. BTW, .6.3 is great! I love that online dictionary, what a cool feature.
Posted by caulktel on April 16 2004,21:20Robert, Another thing, where would you stick the command "wmapm", so that it starts when the xsever starts? I tried xinitrc, but that didn't work, yet I had it working on .6.2, I just can't remember where I put before.
Posted by loupgarou21 on April 19 2004,18:53Wow, I'm impressed and I havn't even finished downloading it yet.
Posted by roberts on April 20 2004,15:09Joel, Sorry I didn't see your post, until now. X programs should still be put into /home/damnsmall/.xinitrc and before the final line which starts fluxbox. I just tried this using 0.6.3 hdinstall with single user direct login. It worked fine. I added rxvt & just before the fluxbox line.
Posted by caulktel on April 21 2004,03:37Robert, Thanks again, I didn't know that it had to go before the FluxBox line, all
is well now and I am putting all this in one place so I can find it again when I upgrade next time. I really appreciate all your help.
