Hello Robert!

I've tried this version both on my 2GB usb stick and now on my 512MB usb stick but not in any of them there appears an entry for optional extensions. They both have FAT16 fs and a single partition. Am I doing something wrong? With DSL 4.1 RC3 I got two entries of optional extensions and now none. I might mention that they are discovered during boot but still no entries in the menu. As usual I'm using the embedded version.

Hope this can be solved and have fun,

Xmms thru dfm still results in libasound errors at shutdown.

Same as with 4.2rc1

To me it's just a minor detail.
