First of all I want to say THANK YOU! to those who provide and develop DSL, iit may be small but that's its very strength, it is simple enough to actually work.
I'm running DSL from the CD on a 900mh AMD with 352 megs ram, it has become my primary environment on this machine when I don't need the cdrom or Windows. I have 3 extra partitions, hda5 formatted fat to share with Windows and for backup/restore, downloads, docs, cross-dev files etc, an ext2 partition on hda6 to which I install linux apps or things that care about the linux filesys, and a swap partition on hda7.
Up to now I've managed to figure out how to make it work for me but after upgrading to 0.8.2 I ran into a little snag... java for Mozilla doesn't work, complaining it can't find libXtst.so.6 but the files are there (the link and ...so.6.1 file it points to). Mozilla itself works fine, going back to 0.8.1.1 restores java. Adding home/dsl/.java to filetool.lst makes no difference, nor does reinstalling java and creating a new symlink to the plugin. Mozilla was downloaded from mozilla.org, and java from www.sun.com, both the latest versions, installed without any problems.
I'd post this under apps except it is something that worked fine before 0.8.2.
Any ideas? Thanks.
