vincent2, if I understand correctly, you had to remove the memory card from a connected USB modem in order for VL to complete install. Then afterwards, I assume you re-inserted the card, and it acts as a thumb drive in addition to being a modem.

Your setup is somewhat unique, none of our devs have what is needed to duplicate your situation. However,  the issue you are describing is reminiscent of a problem we encountered earlier which involved NetworkManager and a particular combination of wireless/wired connectivity. Are you using NetworkManager to set up your Internet access?

 is that  problem   of NetworkManager and a particular combination of wireless/wired connectivity. associated with  host name config and xhost+?

@StrayBit,

Do I understand correctly that B2 was the last one to give you kb/mouse, and since then you have not allowed a new install to configure your boot loader?

Editing the boot options as explained above applies to GRUB. If you use lilo, you enter "Tab" to get to edit mode. The bootable CD uses syslinux, which works differently. However, your problem arises not during the installation, but after the first reboot?

Seems to have solved the problem using this command in the .jwmrc file:

<Desktops width="2" height="2">
<Background type="image">/usr/share/wallpapers/desktop1.jpg</Background>
</Desktops>

Now the background image is good.

Spacefm worked right away, thanks.
I just wonder why Thunar act differently on the same system under Hfce and Jwm.

Suspect there's a dependency installed with spacefm that isn't installed with Thunar. Had the same issue and once spacefm was installed, Thunar began to work properly with auto mounting USB devices.

Will that work with the CD install?
I have not let later installations attempt to install a boot loader as they hang during that process.
