Messing around with 3.1RC2 on a slightly older machine, pII 333mHz, 288mb ram, 3gb harddrive, Gigabyte 868LX3 mobo, TNT2 32mb video

Shutting down using the fluxbox menu, I saw *one time* the message
/usr/bin/iconsnap.lua:52: unexpected symbol near ')'
I don't know why it was only that one time.

The default grub boot string usually resulted in a freeze of the X system (default x settings), but not every time.  Adding "legacy" seemed to fix that.

The ISA AudioDrive (sb) sound card was detected...haven't tested it yet.

Hello, Its my first time using linux, I know little about linux, but lots about PCs. I booted up DSL, i must say i'm very impressed, i like what you guys are doing here. I connected to ADSL with PPPOE etc, and then i browsed my shared folders on my windows PC (XP pro SP2) and then i tried to mount a share.
I spoke quite a bit with the guys on #linux on EFnet, they were really helpful.
Basically I got the error wrong fs type, bad option, or bad superblock
i typed lsmod and saw that smbfs was indeed loaded, then typed dmesg and got saw the error: smb_read_super: missing data argument
smbfs: mount_data version 1919251317 is not supported.
linux is WAY less scary for me now :) even though not a complete success. i wanted to play some MP3s in XMMS
(i'm trying to figure out if this is viable to run on one or two PCs in an internet cafe i'm helping set up)
and breaking the ice between myself and linux

How is the version of torsmo in DSL compiled. I see it is only 38Kb for the binary. When I compile the version from sourceforge (using gcc with libs & the setting the -Os flag) the resultant binary is very much larger, around 200Kb.

torsmo 0.18 would still be a useful addition as it has more functionality, though there does seem to be a problem if no swap space is enabled (the program crashed with a "floating point exception"
