Re: Zenwalk 6.2 RC6 is ready for testing

weird, I was testing 6.0 beta before and all was OK, not I've got this every time I reboot/restart/turn on this Zenwalk (on X server start):

I know that it's in polish but it means that X server is already started on :0 and can be started again on other screen, but nothing is going to happen no matter if I'll select "yes" or "no". X server in this Zenwalk 6.2rc7 works fine only after first booting (just after install) and can't be started again.

well, I installed Zenwalk 6.2rc7 normally, it's booting X server, then I do reboot and after that this happens, even a single file has not been replaced/changed, just simple instalation and reboot, X server works only once.

Not sure what you mean gmg? Do you want the description shortened? What parts would you have removed? The length of the description is within prescribed limits and contains only useful data, so I don't understand.

The location of the two included fonts is where the grub devs stated they should be. We've gone over this thing several times and agreed they are ok there. With everything working so well now, I don't feel big changes should be made with the package or build.

Thanks

Grub2 maintainers : please fix everything before thursday :)

Thanks

JP

As far as I know right now, Grub2 is good to go? Shador is on holiday, so if more changes to his scripts need to be done, please submit a patch which I will include. Right now, everything looks pretty good, I think, so please let me know what changes you would like and I'll try to comply with anything reasonable.

Edit your slack-desk in your package in /install, and compare with mine in:

Ok, I think I understand what you mean. Not so much as reducing the content, but making it more suitable to the instructions you sent? Is this more like you are thinking?

If your fonts are useful for grub, they should be in /usr/share/grub

or /usr/share/grub/fonts

If your fonts are not useful for grub, removed these fonts

Fonts have nothing to do in /usr/src.

btw : the Iceweasel about dialog bug is not something "important", but it is yet a blocker for a Zenwalk stable ISO . It must be fixed in some way before we can release :)

No release as long as it's not fixed.

Thanks
