any changes between 3.2RC3 and 3.2?
I did a HDD install from the RC3 the other night and on the first run thru GRUB didn't install at all. When I rebooted I got the grub that the other distro installed still. I used a grub cmd line and got into DSL. Torsmo reported that I was using a 2.6 kernel even. I booted to CD again and install went fine.
Is it possible for DSL on install to scan the menu.lst from another installed instance of grub and copy settings?
It may be asking too much as most people run DSL from CD, but it would be something to shoot for. When I install Mepis it scans and sees grub already installed and adds entry for other distro to its list. Ubuntu does this too. you have to manually make changes to the menu later if you have multiple Linuxes installed and you get kernel updates, but by that time you have a bit more knowledge. Just a thought.
I loved the Saturn wallpaper from a while back. Any chance that a user could drop their favorite .jpg in /mydsl on custom CD and it would be used as background? Just a cool idea I thought of. I understand themes pkged as a .dsl would work, but I'm just talkin wallpaper only.
