Looks good, just updated my usb-pen (hd-install) from 1.5 to 2.0RC1. (using the livecd)

Up to now the only thing i noticed was that at boottime, (when mydsl's are loading) i see the list of mydsl's TWICE (first one loads at normal speed, second one goes by very fast). In the fluxbox-menu under: MYDSL i already have 4 times: update_to_gtk2!). (which is one of the mydsl's loaded at boot-time with which i have had some trouble in dsl 1.5, i managed to get it running properly by adding-> "touch /tmp/emelfm_loaded;mydsl-load /cdrom/my-dsl/gtk2-0705.dsl" and
"/usr/bin/start_gtk2"  to .xinitrc. I am gonna remove those lines now to see if it will work without it in .xinitrc)

Let you know...

PS: Everything checks out fine this time. (human error)

Have not noticed any changes as yet (Dillo gives me a bizarrely small window to type this in).

Using a Dell Latitude D400, I burnt a new live CD under DSL 1.5 and updated DSL on USB from 1.5 to 2.0RC1.

On booting I see the same issues as DSL 1.5:

1. After initial boot I get an error message "you passed an undefined mode number, press space to continue..."

2. On autoconfiguring devices, I get an error message "modprobe: cant locate module block-major-2"

3. My Intel 855 graphics card is not detected so I need to use VGA mode or use XFree86 to get the full resolution.

4. After dropping out of fluxbox on shutdown, I see an error message "insmod /lib/.../amp.o insmod char-major-lo-134 failed"

I also see my optional myDSL apps listed twice.

Other than that the Broadcom wireless LAN and ALPS touchpad are not detected as in DSL 1.5.

I'll continue to play around and post anything new I see.

Couple of things off the top of my head that need to be specificly tested by the userbase.

1. USB 2.0 support with the install to usb pendrive scripts
2. play with the irc:// and mailto: stuff in firefox
3. test LOTS of extensions! Update the ones that need to be updated! MyDSL extensions are provided by the community! It's up to you guys to keep them up to date!


1, 3, and probably 4 are caused by Intel graphics chipsets generally sucking in anything other than Winsuck.

block-major-2 is the floppy drive module.

modprobe b44 will get your nic working, and the ALPS touchpad driver is quite large, and needs Xfree86 anyway.


They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

Unleash the power of the TILDE~~~
