Release Candidates :: DSL v4.3 RC1


Just made a remaster of the DSL 4.3RC1 and it seems to work fine. The only thing I found out so far is that the background doesn't get scaled when changing style. But that naturally depends on the style that has to be changed someway. I'd appreciate if someone could help me with that. Nice new background by the way! Well now it is past 5.30 AM here in Sweden so I'd better get some sleep.

Have fun testing this awaited RC,

There wasn't a grub bootfloppy for DSL 4. Now there is :D

It even includes Juanito's scsi module. I only made one menu entry as with grub it can be nicely modified. If it's worthy, please upload to DSL mirrors.

ok we've got a small prob here
u've removed the old mount tool (in another version) cos there is a mount tool in dfm's menu. but now, we cant bring up dfms menu, cos right click on desktop brings us the applications menu :P
so id say the dfm settings have to be changed as default to "Window manager context: bottom"

Right click on any icon will bring up mount as well as rest of DFM menu
Maybe I'v missed something , but....

The MyDSL  executable in the MyDSL folder now tries to connect to the repository immediately, rather than as before when it connected only if one of the categories was selected. This isn't a lot of use on a stand-alone system, or one otherwise not able to connect to the net. The facility to load locally stored extensions does not seem to be present. If this is the way the MyDSL system is to go then the MyDSL button should be restored to emelfm (at present I load locally stored extensions by entering the command mydsl-load as the command I want emelfm to use to open a dsl/uci/unc filetype, after double-clicking the required file in emelfm.

I can see the point in changing to this new system, but a simple facility to load locally stored extensions would be of use to many users as well.


I have emailled John with a revised version of DMIX that better copes with multiple mixer devices, but have had no reply. The code is at in the file dmixnew.tar.gz. The reasons for needing this code are detailed in the threads:;st=5

This may be worth inclusion in a future RC
