I installed this baby last night (no, I don't have anything better to do on a Saturday night
) and I am pleased to say that now it's the only OS on my beloved lappy. 5.9 Light is gone.
- as with RC1, i had to install with linux edd=off
(what is this?)
- it installed the packages quickly, the lower compression payed off:
- 990mb pack -> 4m 20s
- 736mb pack- > 3m 40s
- average: ~3.6mb/s
-the installation done sign appeared after only 13 mins
-at the last pack, something with documents, it still stops at 109%
just like in RC1
-at reboot, I selected the vesa option but the config still failed, but this time from the fail menu I went with the default configuration and it worked, so it went easier than with RC1
-I logged in to my account after only 23mins
-it took me almost as much to customise, the most difficult to change being the welcome message of the consoles (yeah, I must have it ALL my way
) but I finally found it in /etc/profile.d/vasm.sh
Should I write a HOW-TO on this?
-no problems encountered, it runs smoothly
-a maybe stupid and inappropriate question for this part of the forum: how do I manually install packages? (I don't have net on the lappy so I manually d/l packages from the repos but don't know how to install
(nevermind, I found the installpkg command)Great work
from everyone who made this great piece of software possible!
