Jpilot: It's 850K. If one of our long time users and contributors needs it, leave it in there.
Don't assume that everyone have always-on, reliable broadband.

Saving space, just a thought; there is functionality overlap between hexchat and pidgin. The multi-protocol pidgin would get my vote to stay. Since these apps assume internet connectivity, getting them from the repo is not unreasonable.

I always felt that way about these 2 apps

I don't believe pidgin is very usable when connecting to an IRC channel...
btw, I have rebuild the faenza-icon-theme from 15MB to less than 5MB by removing any higher than 64 pixel icons...

Try update cups-1.6.2 and cups-filters-1.0.34...
I recall using claws-mail without any problem...

Will check on the new cups.

claws-mail: Configuration>Prefences for current account>OK: Crash, segmentaion fault.

The reason I had first no mouse and KB was on account of wrong setting in lilo.conf, my fault.  Embarrassed

Agreed. Pidgin stinks when it comes to IRC as they flat refuse to add any functionality other than the ability to connect and chat. Yank it from the ISO.

I saw B0.35 in the repo and download it....but i cannot boot on 32bit (in virtualbox) with below messages

Quote
mount: can't find /mnt in /etc/fstab
ERROR: No /sbin/init found on rootdev (or not mounted). Trouble ahead.
           You can try to fix it. Type 'exit' when things are done.

No problem on 64bit thou...maybe a bad download...downloading the 32bit iso again

on 64bit, qpdf-3.0.2 need to be installed for printing to work...

For those who want to try B0.35 32bit, pls follow below instruction from vector

Quote
Those of you that have tried to boot the 32 bit version of vl-b0.35 and have received an error no init found this is because we omitted the initrd from the system due to the deprecation of our old bootsplash system. The 64 bit system still retained the old bootsplash initrd so it still booted but no splash. What I would like you all to try is our new bootsplash system called plymouth. This system is used by all the major distro's and a lot of the minor ones but unfortunately there is not a lot of documentation floating around so we are doing this kind of hit and miss. We originally added some code to our boot scripts to see how plymouth would work and it does for some but most get a garbled text and progress bar sort of thing that is not very attractive. The most effective way of getting plymouth to work is with the initrd method and with a few terminal commands which I will explain you can get your 32 bit system to boot and most likely have a nice bootsplash and the 64 bit users should get a bootsplash too. The 32 bit users need to boot their installed system from the install media either cdrom or usb stick but instead of just pushing the enter key to start the installer follow the installer text which tells you how to boot an installed system something like this...........linux root=/dev/sdxx ro. Once you have your system up and running time to make the initrd for your system. Open a terminal and do:
 cd /boot
then
mkinitrd -c -u -m nouveau:intel:i915:intel_agp:drm:radeon
then
mv initrd.gz initrd
thats it new initrd done! You should be able to boot and see the new plymouth splash as well.
64 bit users only need to do the mkinitrd instructions as they can boot.
Please reply as to your experience with the bootsplash process.
Thanks all for testing !!!!

I too am a jpilot user.  I still rely on my old palm pilot, so my vote is for jpilot to remain.

Now you see why it's so hard to keep things limited to a CD for this distro. The second it's suggested something be left off, people come crawling out of the woodwork crying that it needs to stay.

Some hard choices need to be made. Either keep it to a CD sized ISO, and download the odd program or two from the repo, or we keep everything on it and you're now using a DVD to burn the ISO to.

Which is it? Hmmm?

I had posted a note about jpilot, but for me if it's simply in the repo, then that's fine.  It need not be on the CD.

B0-34 32-bit

Can't help with the plymouth splash since I have no splash screen running.

Further want to mention that abiword and gnucash do open now; fluxbox
exits now to login screen.

If I login as root and logout and click restart on login screen nothing happens.
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace gives me new login screen and clicking restart works.

Logged-in as user and out restart works immediately.

Plugging a USB stick it is not mounted. It does not show on the desktop nor in thunar. CD player does when disk is inserted.

Suspend is not working. It only suspends the networking which then cannot be restarted.
