DSL v3.2RC2 is now ready for testing.

Cumulative Change Log:

* Added wpasupplicant.
* New Mouse Config Lua GUI.
* Added default tone generator for XMMS.
* Improved MyDSL download via the Lua GUI.
* Moved powerdown to use standard rc scripts.
* New dsl-dpkg.unc and adjustments to core.
* dsl-pendrive.bat for Qemu to detect booted pendrive.
* dsl2unc converter
* Updated madwifi-ng modules.
* Updated busybox with >2GB file support.
* New Cron - A perl cron, with new boot option 'cron' and toggle from control panel.
* New boot option "checkfs".  Usage: dsl 2 checkfs - for frugals: dsl 2 toram checkfs
* Simplified MyDSL structure using the level 1 default autoscanned /mydsl directory or user specified level one directory which contains extensions, and optionally the 'optional' subdirectory and/or a 'modules' subdirectory. Dropped now unneeded 'modules' boot time option and support for extensions at level 1.
* New mkmydsl - Simplified Custom iso maker now even easier than before and supports new MyDSL layout and works for both isolinux and syslinux CD versions. Also supports booting with toram or not. On low resource machines boot with:   dsl base norestore mydsl{=hdXY{/dirname}}
* Updated MyDSL to support direct downloading to all supported and mounted drives/directories.
* Added volume setting to persist via .umix
* Added default Netscape to call Firefox
* Added a default .desktop to /etc/skel for better hard drive support.
* Updated to add .xserverrc to /etc/skel for better hard drive support.
* Fixed bad default X & Y for Aterm.lnk
* Fixed hard drive install permmision problem on /opt/.mydsl_dir
* For hard drive installs, perform regenerate and modules.dep only upon first boot.
* Updated "Getting Started" with the new MyDSL simplified directory structure.
* Updated Qemu to 0.8.2 - dropped 60MB virtual hard drive - read the new readme.txt

Updated files that are likely in your backup.

I've made a custom iso with mkmydsl, DSL v3.2RC2 and some unc extensions. When using this live-CD (with toram), I can't eject the CD or even umount it. Is it normal? Any workarounds?

Without the 60 MB virtual disk how can users use MyDSL?

Possible problem with the dsl-dpkg.dsl

the symlink is created in /var/lib pointing at /KNOPPIX/var/lib, there is nothing there. So dpkg fails.

any attempt to create the directory results in "read only file system"

I'm guessing this is a mounting error that has crept in somewhere
