Hello, Installed the newest alpha , and so far it looks great, and what I've tested works well. The Nvidia installer , which I've not ever messed with before, was awesome, automatic, and did what it was supposed to do. I can't get cups to start , for some reason, so far, so I can configure printer. There is no firewall running that I can find, so it must be something else. Tried to install my favorite old game Lbreakout2 but when I run configure, I get "C compiler cannot create executables." It's been about 2 ys since I messed with installing frm source, I forget how to fix this.
I did install by the package manager, the penguin game, PPL?, and it complains about wrong LibSDL, I can prob find the right one someplace.
Overall it looks great, it configured the onboard lan card (without any onscreen feedback though -had me worried)
which works fine , internet is up and good. Havent checked browser plugins yet. Bootmessages have a lot of complaint lines about no basic support for this, that and the other, but mustn't hamper anything, CDs mount and umount perfectly, sound system is super. I'll check mplayer later. Other than crappy fonts on the yahoo pages in FF, I like this version! I can email any log files that might help, pm me. Here's equipt I have now: Asus M2R32-MVP , no fancy INtel crossfire cards in it though, 2 GB ram , old 40gb ide HD . & cheap video card GeForce 5500. AMD64 X2 dual-core 4200+
Edit> The fault may be in /sbin/vcupsweb, line 75........this is where it 'faults' when I run the cups config from VASM----Can anyone tell me how its supposed to read??? here's the way it is now:
yesnobox "Hmmm ... CUPS is not running.\nLaunch it, shall we ?"
[ $? != 0 ] && clean_exit
service cups start
the last line is line 75. Browser won't open, cups wont start , can't config printer. THANKS
