Lots (no, even more than that) of under the hood changes and tweaks by Robert; an integrated compressed application system also by Robert; an improved MyDSL gui by me; and Ke4nt has done many hours of testing and a ton of repository/extension work.

Thanks, peeples!

edit: typo on the website, both on the main page and notes.  Unless the name has been changed for DSL, the new app is "XCruiser"

Cool beans! Looks like a real winner and that I may have to scrub my hdd clean and start things from scratch with a better base!

um, minor problem.

the NIC on my notebook doesn't work w/0.8, but it did with everything since 0.5.something.

it is a Broadcom 440x 10/100

but, the good news is, the cardmgr works with my carbus slot! now, if i only had a nic...

Does anybody know if the Linksys wpc 11 V.4 Wireless card will work .8.0? I haven't had the time to yard my hard drive out of my laptop yet for the install, but I really like this release. Thanks to everyone that contributed to it.

For the WPC11v4, I believe you need ndiswrapper and the Realtek 8180 WinXP drivers.

Just a note to say that the mydsl desktop icon has an "add drives" option at the bottom of the screen. Using this will allow you to download the extensions to a hard drive instead of the ramdisk. It also allows you to load from local storage instead of downloading each time. Another improvement is that an internet connection is no longer required to use the program. So, use it to access your local storage of all the great extensions that you have accumulated.

Also, for best results, please use the "exit click and run" button to nicely exit the program.

tried 0.8 this evening on my desktop PC and it would not boot. It froze on the isolinux screen.  I was using a CDRW 185MB disk.  It may have been bad.  I will reburn tomorrow on a fresh disk.

New distro looks great.  Thanks for the work. Quick question,
though:  where do I find Firefox?

Hi all,

Who can confirm these problems with 0.8:
1. starting ssh deamon,
then #sudo passwd root -> error not possible to change the password...
#sudo passwd dsl -> error not possible to change the password...
same problem occurs also for ftp server...
2. I tried to modify the iso, ( same why like i did for .7.3, add /optional in the root directory of the cd image and fill it with dsl packages)
when i start my machine with this cd it stop directly after lilo, telling me that the checksum is not correct...
i tried again the 0.7.3 and it works, i burn the original iso 0.8 and it also boots...
Anyone has an idea what may has changed between 0.7.3 and 0.8 at boot ?

It's a bug in the new version.

I did a search for keywords

ssh password

and searched all forums, from the beginning or newer.

Here is the thread with the workaround:
