|My quick advice is to download 0.5.3.1 and use it instead of 0.6 for the short term.|
My longer term advice is more of a suggestion to John (& Robert):
Is there an alternative to replacing ALL of the core Linux utilities with BusyBox?
There are several programs (like cp, ln, tar, gzip) that just don't work the same in Busybox and in some situations, this cripples the OS.
I am sure that there are other shell scripts/install scripts out there that will work properly in 0.5.3.1 but will bomb out in 0.6
Can you please bring back the above mentioned core Linux programs in a future version of DSL?
..one good way is add '--verbose|-v' to Busybox on the cd, and make the real stuff available on hd installs thru an apt-get --purge Busybox dependency.
..on remastering, I usually junk the DSL kernel and put in the one from clusterKnoppix, and I also toss in 1152x864 and 15bpp and 7 rodent buttons into '/usr/sbin/xsetup.sh', I guess it can take more options.
