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

John,  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.

Best to put them in /opt/
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.

Hey 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.

Robert, 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.

Wow, I'm impressed and I havn't even finished downloading it yet.

Joel, 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.

Robert,  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.
