vasmCC looks cool! Good job. I wonder though, how hard it would be to integrate each of those "modules" or scripts into the new KDE 4 Control Center. It would be nice to have one central control panel instead of a KDE one and a Vasm one. Just a thought. Probably not worth anything.

Getting closer.

Boot messages now well within terminal frame.

Frozen-bubble can again be launched with -no-fullscreen flag. We know for -fullscreen we have to wait for xorg to fix the driver for sagave.

First startx gave a black screen and a teminal in the upper left corner. I had expected xfce4 to open.

Twm will not exit except with Ctrl-Alt-Backspace.

No icons on xfce4-panel for Quit and Speaker.

CD icon still follows cursor.

Audio CD can only be played with xine. Audacious and mplayer claim that there is no audio CD.

In cups can't make anything out of the printers offered for Epson such as
Generic PCL 4 Printer Cups-gutenprint..... etc
Never seen before.

Yes it seems I can't print with this kernel 2.6.23.1 with my Epson LQ300 printer. I took the kernel over to VL5.8-STD and sure enough it will not print. I overlooked that on RC1 assuming it will print as it did with the Beta versions on previous kernel.

VASMCC looks nice!

Kernel Selction Help is confusing for me, it says that:
linux   : For most systems with IDE/SATA harddisk (default)

few lines below:
The default is 'linux2'

but when I just pressed enter the message was:
loading kernels/sata

Which then is the default kernel? linux, linux2 or sata!?   Huh

"same as above but with new initrd"


Wm, apparently, both of them are "sata", but linux2 use a new initrd.

MMM.... I can think of a couple of reasons not to do that. let me see if I can put those down in an orderly fashion:

First, and probabbly the most relevant.... We only ship KDE with SOHO ... How would we configure STD?
Second .... I dont know C or C++ Wink (I assume it's written in one of those)

With that said, I think our configuration (be it vasm vasmCC or whatever else) needs to be DE-independant.

ok, was a long wait, but this is great!
I have no the vasmCC problem. Looks very good. A few minor things to comment, but perhaps we should start a new thread for it, is a hole new thing.
media-refresh gives me 

Quote
Failed to execute child process "sginfo" (No such file or directory)

I had problems with the keyboard layout too, vasm fixed it though.

Terminal doesn't work for me, the same weird problem. I can-t find and explanation for it, but I am comfortable with xterm. I am pretty sure it is a non-vl-related problem. I will do more research if I can make the time for it.

After thinking a while, I made an opinion about Acrobat Reader. Some users have problems to install it, so is good thing to have it in the iso. But the size is huge. I think we should include a vector graphics tool in the place of Xara, and Inkscape is the obvious choice. Gvim could be good too, or perhaps Geany. I think we should include a least one more 'dev' editor. So, resuming, I think the size of AR lives out a few of cool and useful apps. Of course, is just one opinion. May be the fact I have more use for Inkscape and text editors is influencing my argument  Roll Eyes,

I installed a few packages with Gslapt, I have the problems mentioned. It download everything but hangs during the install. Who packaged Amaya? Thank you very much  Wink

Well, a great job as always. I thing this one is in shape, a few minor things...

I started inkscape a couple weeks ago, but had a few deps to build.  Then got distracted.  Such is life for me  Cheesy

Since I'd consider the use of Gslapt important.  Those that need a quick fix until it's resolved in the next release.  As root (terminal):
Quote
sed -i "s|/usr/sbin|vsuper /usr/sbin|" /usr/share/applications/gslapt.desktop
Will add the vsuper command before gslapt is launched, so you can enter your root password.

Thanks. Saved me manually editing the gslapt desktop file.

Gslapt itself still has a lot of problems here. I attempted to update 4 files earlier, and had it lock up 3 times. It eventually completed, but I had to kill it three times to get it to do so.

I think the logo should be incorporated in the welcome screen. Some advertisement is fine, but once you get down to business, the screen real estate should be dedicated to the task. The title bar will still show what you're working with.

I Agree... It looks good one time... but then it gets dorky after a while

We'll have to eliminate that.

The scripts that can not be run under X (like autosetup) should not be included.

With the freedom of motion that the GUI gives us, the launchers should only be one level deep. Better to add some categories to the left panel. That way we could eliminate some duplications as well. Thinking of it.. I'll start on that, just in case   Wink

That can be easily done without modifying the vasmCC code (except to add more categories)...

M0E,
I think you have misunderstood nightflier on this. I understood him as saying the vasmcc logo should only be seen in the welcome screen. and I think you read that as the welcome screen looks bad.
please correct me if my interpretations are incorrect.

IMO without the vasmcc logo at the top vasmcc will look too plain, and I think we need to have either a welcome screen or an about/help screen.
