Wait a few days as there might be something in the works.

No problemos :)

BTW, I tried DSL-N and it of course booted without a problem.
Are they the same thing just 2.6.x kernel and extra utils?
Anyway, having it still at RC state from 06' I will much prefer to have the little DSL up and running on my PC and tweak it to my needs.

Some  add. questions:

1. Where do I set the graphics adapter driver?
2. Same thing for the display (other then setting for a generic resolution)
3. Fonts: hinting, tt, antialiasing, sub pixel and all that.
4. Fonts types, where to set it?
5. Multi ling.? I need to have support for Hebrew :)
6. Trying PCLOS, they have a tool called Synaptic. is there anything like that in DSL?
7. can you run VMware server on DSL?

Thanks :)

1) You don't.. The core DSL only has two X servers, vesa and framebuffer. Vesa is the default, and also faster of those two. But you can check if any of the tiny X servers in testing work with your card, or download Xfree or Xorg (a full X server, with all drivers and full acceleration)

2) there isn't a specific display driver. Do you mean the refresh rate?

3) I think those need full X and also some scalable (TTF or OTF) fonts

4) Full X is needed for that kind of control

5) if there's a font and a keymap, there you go

6) There is MyDSL, DSL's own packages, and also synaptic for DSL. Debian packages (from synaptic) might break something though.

7) I guess so. I've tried only Qemu though.

There's no such thing as life. Those mean little jocks invented it ;)
