probably just needs to be re-built to enable this... The package is there, but idk of anyone using it.  If you want to help get them enabled, help us research what is needed to make it work.

I have noticed that PHP does not have modules for PostgreSQL and iODBC or UNIXOdbc. I wonder why is that so.

PostgreSQL is one of the best database engines around, if one doesn't happen to be a BSD hater and GPL jihadist.

IODBC or UNIXOdbc allows connection majority of existing database engines on all platforms. Effectively all but most obscure ones.
Most of them have ODBC drivers for all platforms.

subversion has been updated to 1.9.3 for both 7.1 and 7.2
and is in untested repo
as usual we appreciate any testing so that we may move it out into the repos

Subversion servers and clients are vulnerable to a remotely triggerable
heap-based buffer overflow and out-of-bounds read that may allow remote
attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code
under the context of the targeted process.

For more information, see:

Can you boot to your text prompt by selecting the 'TUI' option on boot, then login as root and type 'init 4'

See if that brings up your gdm login screen.
Yes that brought me to the login screen.After that rebooted in default option did the same succesfully as well.
Reinstalled grub and the problem solved. I can now use gdm to login and use xfce4 which now remembers all the customization-localization i'd made.

I dont see anything there that indicates what may have broken your gdm.

The licensing agreement for Java does not allow this. You'll need to install it on your own.

unfortunately its these types of situtation that has lead to us not oficially
supporting unetbooten. not to mention its a 3rd party app.
this is not meant towards you but rather to unetbooten. its garbage.

while it is true that dd can hose a box it almost never happens. all you
need to do is make sure you use the correct drive (usb stick?)
