Systemload works ok.

Mount also works, though it seems somewhat different from in VL6. I don't know why it shows gvfs.fuse.daemon mounted - is this something to do with mounting? I also note that the cdrom and cdburner don't show now until they are mounted - is this because mounting is handled in a different way now?

Cheers
Andy

It may be because the hal daemon is not running by default.  I'll look into it.

Hal is deprecated as of xfce-4.8 (and KDE 4.6, IIRC). It has been replaced by udisk and upower, plus some direct udev handling for other stuff.

xfce4-mpc-plugin: Depends: exo >= 0.3.107

The CPU Frequency Monitor, CPU Graph and battery monitor plugin is not working.

OK, there are two ways I can fix this...
1. Simply remove the exo from the slack-required file as it is part of the base install.
or
2. Add exo-0.6.0 to the repo ( I have it built and ready to go.)

If I don't here from anyone on why option #2 is a terrible idea, I'll go with that.  At least that way a person and re-install exo if they were to have a problem with it.

No harm to have more apps in the repo. I vote for the option 2. :)
