Another I would like to bring up is the fact you cannot switch consoles in FC4, and I got the same trouble in BLAG 39999.20000. I don't know what causes it, but it is annoying as hell, and I would appreciate it if you could fix that...somehow.


You can't ctrl-alt-f1 ??? I can do it in the installs I've done.



ehh, no I can't. I havn't tried it on the install, but it sure is a pain in the ass.


Running 39999.20000 and just worked out (after reading this) that ctrl-alt-f7 gets me back.

Works for me......which is nice.

I'm sufferring from the same problem as others with graveman (versions newer than 3.8 wont see my writer). I'm not even going to mention k3b problems (oops too late) GnomeBaker however seem to work fine.

still no mc?

I'd expect that fundamentals should be in place before the toys are added.
If the base BLAG needs configuring and X and network are down.. then what?
mc is a life saver
and I still don't understand the hate on for mc.

I don't see `mc` as a fundamental unix utility. Looks more like a DOS thing to me. ;) It's also two megs. Why not just apt-get it if you need it? Or if it should be in, what should go?

I only use mc to read the contents of compressed files. Once I work out how to do that without mc I'll dump it. I think it's something like `mount -o loop [something] /path/to.tar.gz` Does not take much to apt-get it though.<rant>Mcedit is pants. </rant>

You don't do a loopback mount for that. You can use tar directly to view file lists, then extract a file from there.

For those editing html
Quanta, (Cervisia and Kompare required).
I also use Screem, Bluefish and NVU.

Open Motif would be nice if made available during install this applies to those who use as for example Opera as browser.

NTFS support.
Java, Blackdown.

Flash RPM.

I'd look at modular approach to Xorg X-11 as we see in Fefora 5.

And the most recent kernel.

Keep the graphics, love them.

That's it.

No Java or Flash, they're proprietary software (which is evil).

As for this modular support thing, if it's in Fedora 5, blag will add it when blag gets to blag 50000. Most recent kernel and the awesome blag grafix are obviously going to be present.

Thanks for your input,
Stephen Clement (stevo32)

I'm just starting to realize that BLAG seems to make major releases based on the same releases RHEL/CentOS etc base their release on. Looks like 9,1(?),3,5 to me... ;)

Cuz it's looking a bit doubtful that a 40k stable is gonna be released before we start jamming on 50k. And I'd rather do a 30002 before a 40k.

I haven't had a regular desk and peace & quiet to work on this but a few days out of the last few months. Oh! But the horizon looks promising. :)

And what about an uPnP server ?
It's light and I could use it with the Home-Cinema Philips MX6000i wich can read DivX and mp3's on my local network. I can do that with the modded Xbox in my bedroom too.
If I ask you that, i's because I can't install Mediatomb. And TwonkyVision is limited to Music streaming. Than You in advance if you could do that !!!

Huh? Sry, but I don't know what uPnP, the MX6000i, Mediatomb, nor TwonkyVision are. (!)

And through some tricky editing, it now says "50k"! ;)

Stevo32 and I are working on an alpha right now of blag50000 based on Fedora Core 5 test 1.

I'll go through the 40k requests for 50k.

Anyhoo, just pinging this thread. Want something new?

Euhm, I would like a version of DOSbox and/or Wine :)
Would that be possible?

Wine is in the repository. I'm not sure what dosbox is (thankfully?).

Oh ok.
If you're interested:

DOSBox website --> dosbox.sourceforge.net

Info:

Quote:
DOSBox emulates an Intel x86 PC, complete with sound, graphics, mouse, modem, etc., necessary for running many old DOS games that simply cannot be run on modern PCs and operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP, Linux and FreeBSD. However, it is not restricted to running only games. In theory, any DOS application should run in DOSBox, but the emphasis has been on getting DOS games to run smoothly, which means that communication, networking and printer support are still in early developement.
More...

BTW, I didn't knew Wine was already in the repository.
