|Regarding the duplication of MyDSL menu icons: i believe this is a common problem if you use a persistent /home. Backing up regularly to a backup.tar.gz excludes the mydsl.menu in ~/.fluxbox, but using a persistent home will cause it to be loaded at every boot. Since MyDSL adds to the mydsl.menu by adding additional lines instead of by rewriting the file, this can cause the DSL entries to repeat themselves.|
Good point. I should ask that the result of showbootcodes be posted as that would tell me what options, i.e. persistent, are being used.
Regarding the USB scripts: I think the ability to change boot-time options needs to return. In particular, since it doesn't start up out of grub emulating a frugal install, the second partition of the flash drive is write-only, making it a pain to edit Grub and fix this problem. Similarly, the addition of 'noapm' seems sort of arbitrary - is there any special reason this checking is skipped?
Agreed! It is done and ready in rc3 to be available real soon.
As far as I know, the only way to actually see the second partition of the flash drive in Windows is by editing the registry to make it seem like a mass storage device instead of a removable disk. However, don't get me wrong - the two partition set up is invaluable.
Regarding torsmo and IP addresses: If you look in .torsmo_ip you will see that it is by default set to eth0. To make it more modular, you could pump the output of /proc/net/dev through an awk command, since the devices are listed in /proc/net/dev as eth. and wlan. with their addresses as well.
Good suggestion, thanks. I have added it to rc3.
