Vincent,

I will be packaging wxcam and dependencies.  While they may not end up in the iso they will end up in the repository.  For my webcam a 2.6.27.10 kernel is required.  See notes above for where to find it.

Regards,
Cait

Is there anyway to get the nvidia driver for my geforce 5200 working, 173.xxx.xxetc pre latest module, tried downgrading to the 5.9 one but get dependancy issues vxconf>=5.9 required.

Well we figured it out you and whoever else needs this nvidia driver can find it here:

Since moving to build 2vl60 of the 2.6.27.10 kernel last night my system has locked up hard three times.  I've also seen more video weirdness again.  I am definitely going to revisit getting the Via Chrome driver compiled for VL6 as I really believe most of my issues point straight back to openchrome.

I may also download one or more of the other distros built specifically for netbooks and see what they do.

Installed VL6rc1 on the old Toshiba Satellite 1805-S204.

Basic specs:
Intel Celeron 1GHz processor
512MB RAM

The good:

My Atheros 5212 wireless chipset works well with the latest ath5k driver.  Madwifi isn't needed anymore.  Good solid connection, configuration a snap with wicd.  wicd is running much faster than in VL5.9.  I don't know what y'all did but it works well.

Performance in general is good considering the age of the machine.  There is no degradation since 5.9.

The not so good:

1.  Installer>  gui installer goes to a black screen.  It simply can't handle the Trident CyberBlade chipset.  Every other distro installer I've tried has no problem.  Text based installer works well but still doesn't configure the network.  I had to do that with vasm after installation was completed.

2. vxconf> also can't cope with this chipset.  As with VL 5.9/5.8/5.1 I get an itty bitty screen surrounded by black.  The default xorg.conf-fbdev does work properly.

3. Reboot still doesn't work.  It goes through the shutdown process and hangs with a black screen and doesn't restart.  Ubuntu and some of it's clones do reboot this laptop properly.  VL never can.

Installed kernel module as above, rebooted, tried to install nvidia driver 173.14.12, errors, log below:
Pevsner,

Heres howto run nvidia installer after installing the vl package:
first drop to runlevel 2 ie type init 2 in  terminal
you will need to re login there as root
next type cd /usr/src/vl-pkgs/NVIDIA-173.14.12
next type ./nvidia-installer

that should get it installed. When done type init 4 to get back into GUI mode and your done.

Cheers,
Vec

Uelsk8s:  I finally found the raw source code (not distro specific) for the Via UniChrome drivers as well as compilation and installation documentation.  Between the two of us we should be able to figure out how to build a package for VL so that folks like me who have the CX700M chipset don't get video weirdness.  The good news is that this driver seems to support a lot of different Via chipsets.

See: http://www.viaarena.com/default.aspx?PageID=420&OSID=25&CatID=2580&SubCatID=184

Let me know if you make any progress.  It will be tomorrow at the earliest that I'll have time to look at it.

I updated to the most recent version of bootsplash, hoping it might cure the lockups that I've been seeing. Hasn't helped unfortunately. If I leave bootsplash in silent mode, I get intermittent hard lockups just before the GUI login should start. As the bootsplash clears, it overwrites itself (leaving part of the console visible), I get a bit of disk activity, then everything stops hard. Not seen this problem in any other distro, and I've only seen it very intermittently in any of the alpha or beta versions of 6.0.

Also set up the network using Vasm (I think the last install I did on the T42 must have been text mode), enabled DHCP. Now I cannot start the slapt  update notifier daemon at all. I get a PID file generated during startup, but any subsequent attempt to restart the daemon fails - doesn't even clear the original PID.

Hi Vector,

Yes, I did install nvidia driver like that, down to init 2. I think I might have downgraded to 5.9 vlnvidia with dependancy errors and not gone back to origional v6 one. Will try again later.

re: nvidia 173.xxxx driver package.
Ok installed fine now. (I thought the package was the modules to compile nvidia drivers against. - it is the driver itself!! arggh)
Thx vector.
I can give vl6 rc1 a full workout now.

Did anyone tested large file support? files bigger than 2GiB ? I tried to download 4GiB iso image and it failed @ 2GiB? download is working ok on VL59
I think this shuld be enabled in the kernel during compiling phase. Can it be enabled later ?

large file support works fine here, what filesystem are you saving to?
