This is not a request for a reply. I read French, German, Italian, Dutch,
and some other languages, if someone does want to write.
I finally managed to get the usb version of slitaz to work by going to the
command line version of the installer. I also had some major problems with
my computer bios until I found the right settings for booting. Even with
that, installing the file system version of slitaz-cooking on another 8
gigabyte usb stick using the graphic installer gets to a grub boot error
after stage 1.5.
I found the list of installer programs on your package icon, and I used it
to get flash and realplayer. Going to any web site that supports flash
crashes firefox. Not complaining, merely reporting. If I start firefox in an
su xterm window, xterm reports that firefox has segfaulted at the flash web
page. I got the same segfault on a Hewlett-Packard presario with 1.6 mhz
celeron M and a desktop that uses an intel motherboard with dual atom 1.6
64-bit cpus. In other words, the segfault occurs on 32-bit and 64-bit cpus.
Real player using the slitaz download script does indeed install, plays
sound flawlessly, but refuses to display video. On the other slackware linux
system (RIPLinuX file system on a 4 gb usb stick) that I use, real player
can also be unwilling to show video, but does eventually do so, if you
"zoom" to full screen. I'm impressed that it runs on slitaz at all. The
other linux system I use has the pango library, but realplay insists I am
missing a pango shared file, until I do a suspicious symlink on a different
pango library file. Possibly the download script for slitaz is using the
"wrong" pango library file also.
I was having an installation-script orgy using my newly working usb slitaz,
until one of the scripts apparently tainted the ethernet connection of my
dsl to ethernet modem and stopped communications. Merely connecting to my
fussy modem under any linux is a problem, and slitaz connects easily,
I know this is beta software, and I am really impressed by its potential and
the work already done. I hope to work with upcoming versions.
