Re: Changes for 4.0-RC2

[ Thread Index | Date Index ]

ok, but then lets keep the iso as it is with lets say the name
slitaz-vesa.iso, because its stupid for those who know, how it works
and who have to install a driver which is not on the iso.

I mean, I dont want to contradict you, but with the fbdev driver I got a
picture on all my computers - ok, if I dont know my vesa number in a
wrong resolution, but still a picture where I can easy run tazx and
edit my xorg.conf and restart X

I think we should keep the spirit of slitaz, but for saving our and
the users time and nerves we should think, to provide userfriendly
- like a full X-flavor with all video drivers on board. Maybe this
flavor has more goodies, like UMTS support and preinstalled cups and
it will have then 60 MB, but who cares on a computer with 2 Gigs of Ram

just an idea
