Don't know if this is problem or not,, but when rebooting into 64 version, VL insists that I name the new session.  This seems to be an unnecessary step in the loading process.

I get following error when running dosemu (downloaded from slackbuilds for 14.1) on VL 7.1 64, whether I run it as root or not:

Quote
root:# dosemu

   You do not have the DOSEMU vga font installed and are running
   remote X. You need to install the vga font on your _local_ Xserver.
   Look at the readme for details. For now we start with an fixed font,
   which does not display all national characters correctly.
   ... be warned

The default icon set is Faenza cupertino (very nice), However, the icon for nm-signal in status folder for faenza Dark (signal strenght) is silver and more in keeping with the volume icon and general appearance. Is it possible to move these icons so they are included as default?.

Edit: On further inspection the icon is not scalable so perhaps not functioning correctly and already intended to be silver as it appears in the icon folders

From settings manager/ appearance/ icons the signal strength icon is only silver when Faenza-Dark is selected and is not scalable.

adding: By editing icon.theme and "#" Inherits=Faenza,gnome,hicolor and removing # from Inherits=Faenza-Dark,gnome,hicolor and logout/in. The icon appears silver but remains unscalable when panel is made larger. perhaps not a scalable icon

works for me

overthere,

the faenza-icon-theme pkg on 7.1 had been trim down by removing any icons files that is larger then 48 to reduce the pkg size...

Quote
# remove icons that is above 48 pixels to reduce size
for a in $TARBALLS; do
   #rm -r $PKG/usr/share/icons/$a/{extras,stock}
   rm -r $PKG/usr/share/icons/$a/*/{64,96,scalable}
done

Installed 7.1 Beta 1 this morning. There's an issue with the Grub installation at the end of the routine and the system just hangs. Shut things down manually and sure enough, Grub wasn't installed properly. Booted in manually and ran grub-mkconfig and grub-install.

CPU0 is still MIA as well.

grub>kerenl /boot/vmlinuz  ro root=/dev/sda1
grub> boot

bo46 32 bit

Installed to sda3 via gui advanced, existing, lilo to partition

reboot kicks disc, reboot via partition manager to sda3

very easy install, connect to wireless, create additional user

shut down, reboot, logins/outs

desktop folder no longer on desktop

leafpad appears to save 6/6

*/root folder remains on lower panel.

from previous notes - marble via gslapt crashes with current theme, works with simple gtkrc theme

gnubg no icon on menus, etc

keeps gettin better Smiley

may be worth adding the settings manager, pkg manager  to the favorites menu when you tweak the desktop

This happens because gobject-introspection is disabled in pygobject.
We should enable it or remove the apps that need it.

I have enabled introspection in pygobject and triggered rebuilds for a few affected packages.  Building as I type this, and will be available soon from untested.  Can you all please install via slapt-get and test.  Report back here.

Repeated install of B0.47 on Ivy Bridge machine. Not much change from B0.45.

A little more info: On 64-bit the pointing devices still go to sleep after 2 or 3 seconds. Optical mouse needs a click, but on an optical trackball wakes up if I move it around some.

32-bit still no mouse. No eth0, but I did see repeated entries in /var/log/messages about it coming up.

Installed and system-config-printer opens from the menu.  Cheesy

Hi Roy,

Try:

Code:
echo on > /sys/bus/usb/devices/usbX/power/control

Where "usbX" is your usb port (usb1, usb2, etc.)
I know this is not an optimal solution but if it works at least we have a clue Smiley
