RC2 hard disk installed to old notebook:  
Torsmo doesn't work for the IP traffic display at the top - no figures at all for my working dial-up connection.  Other Torsmo parts lower down work OK. (Much preferred the old dockapps system display though)
Hard disk install seems faster than ever.

If you want to try it out Mikshaw has a conky UCI in the myDSL tesing area.

IMHO it looks promising but is a little more resource intensive than torsmo. Also torsmo is one binary (95k) whereas corky (96k) needs some support libs (90k+).  So for the simple monitoring needs on my old laptop - DSL2.1 with torsmo is perfect (I don't need conky's graphs and seti, mldonkey support etc.).

Yes I tried out conky before in arch linux (which I use on my main computer). It seemed to use a bit less resources on my computer but I can't really tell the difference. Just wanted to know if conky had been considered for dsl instead of torsmo, and if so why torsmo was chosen . And you gave me that answer, thank you :)

The conky uci has the extra lib included because the conky configure script is faulty.  Although it states that you can disable the support of xft (which i generally do for most mydsl packages), it still compiles with that dependency.  Automake configure scripts are ridiculously huge and complicated, and i'm not about to try editing one.

Other than that I haven't really seen much difference in the two apps yet.

On a frugal install (according to pdf, with opt and home =hda3) the Ted.lnk does not survive a reboot. I am assuming (only assuming, I am not quite sure how to debug), that this is due to the orphancheck() in /etc/init.d/dsl-functions.

I changed /opt/ to

Code Sample
if [ -s /opt/.backup_device ]; then
 ls -al /home/dsl/.xtdesktop/
 read abctest backup noprompt;

and in the list the Ted.* files are already missing. (btw: I have the same problem with some of my own added icons which execute commands /opt/programname/bin/programm ).
/hda3 and /opt still appear to be mounted at that point, so there must definitely be something going in and deleting it. However calling
/etc/init.d/dsl-config directly doesn't delete anything (set-vx shows that Ted.lnk and myprog.lnk both pass the tests).

If I call the script directly, the backup has the mysterious *.lnk (and image) files. And if hard-reset the machine at that point, they do get restored during the next boot - but only once (i.e. they disappear when auto-backup kicks in on the next proper shutdown/reboot).

(and I've had the same problems on RC1 and even on 2.0, but at that point I though I was screwing something up. But now that Ted seems disappear as well, it might not be me after all...)

Usually when it is one pesky icon, it points to the icon.
And yes, Ted.lnk is missing the Status:  anchor.
This option will keep your icons from being cleaned up.
For now simply right click and edit its properties. I will fix in next cut.

Thanks for reporting.
