Re: Zenwalk 7.4 is ready!

Nice. Loads quickly, very responsive.

Sad that the pretty Daliesque background has been dropped though ;-)

keyboard number lock

Can anyone tell me how to configure the installation so that the number is Off by default? I've tried all XFCE setting options to no avail.

Re: Zenwalk 7.4 BETA IS READY

Hello, I tried the new Beta yesterday evening. I loaded the OS onto an ASUS Eeebox 1.6 Ghz Atom. Install went well. The biggest negative is that the keyboard (wireless OEM delivered with the ASUS) is configured with numlock on and the standard gui controls don't allow it to be turned off. Otherwise ...

Re: Problem with grub2 and xorg

Hi BrandiPat,

The machine is indeed not Linux friendly, It also hangs similarly with Lilo after ZW6 install, and was no better vis à vis the video setup.

A Puppy live CD worked fine though.

Re: Zenwalk 6.0 has been released !

Yes Brasero has never worked for me. I generally junk it and install Gnomebaker; this has always worked without fail.

PS Still annoyed that my Ooffice 3 keeps crashing when I link to a csv file though ::)

Re: Zenwalk 6.0 has been released !

Nonetheless there appears to be a problem: another 3 CDs down, all downloaded from different sites, all md5's checked out, all installs give critical error messages when installing at least 3 packages (including xorg). Glad to hear that laprjns didn't experience this issue. Curious but the fact rem...

Maybe a little too hurried, I downloaded, verified md5, burnt the ISO onto CDROM and installed over RC1 (with /home RC1 as was) and X failed to start. I'm too busy to dive under the hood but is there an easy fix for this or should I just reinstall RC1 and upgrade?

Re: Zenwalk 5.2 RC1 !!

Congratulations Zenwalk team. I have been trying ZW 5.2 for a couple of days. With the screen (VP191b) oriented in portrait mode I was able to hibernate ZW last night. Upon startup this morning the system was restored - admittedly after quite a bit (approx 2 minutes) of disk and cpu activity. My com...

Re: Zenwalk 5.0 beta is available for testing

Firstly my best wishes to the Zenwalk team for a happy and prosperous New Year. A few more comments concerning version 5. Wicd When I first tried to set this up to receive WiFi, I clicked the box to "Automatically connect to this network" for my WiFi network. I was then unable to add the WPA key. I ...
