Looks like 4:00pm GMT is 12:00 Noon for US Eastern (EST).

I look forward to trying Carolina out. I'll be attempting it on a ThinkPad T4* laptop with a Pentium M CPU and 2gb RAM.

Should be fun Smile

EDIT: just curious, how did you choose the name? I live in North Carolina USA and I'm chuckling over the location matchup.

With the size of Carolina being over 300 megs, it seems like a small thing like adding fd0 as a device and an app for formatting floppies would not add that much size to it.
And there are still people that find a floppy useful.
Is not Wake Pup made for making a floppy to boot Puppy?

I am going to wait a few days before downloading the ISO as it may be in the process of being uploaded and I would not want to get a partial file what with my slow internet speed of 1.5mbs.

The Carolina breed is a wild breed from the Eastern United States, commonly know as the "American Dingo". It has a very old lineage, but wasn't discovered until the 1970's. Here's an article from Wikipedia about the Carolina breed. Ironically, the name for the distro was suggested by an Australian.

By the way, I'd be very curious to hear how 'lina runs on your think pad Smile

The ISO is available in the repository. See the first post on this thread for links, as they have now been added.

could you apply this patch for 845 users? or does it interfere with other graphics cards?

No it's not a typo, pup-volume-monitor-0.1.7: Lightweight drive management.

I reported there was a problem with the pup-volume-monitor to akash_rawal, he kindly rewrote it,
this as fixed problems with unmounting and applications crashing while mounting drives.


Any chance of getting this in the Saluki repository if it's applicable? I'd be glad to test it.

I can't run Carolina as it's PAE and the flag checking in syslinux or Grub4dos won't let me even though it will run on my Pentium M boxes.

Thanks elroy. Installed and running in Saluki 023. So far so good. It seems to have cleaned up the mount/unmount behavior (I usually do it entirely within Thunar now). I'll continue to use it.

I wouldn't think it'd work. Carolina uses the PAE 3.2.13 Linux kernel. You would have to apply the patch to the correct kernel sources and recompile a custom kernel in order to accommodate this. You could do that, and then change the kernel out using the custom-builder in either Saluki or Carolina. At present, Carolina won't be officially supporting other kernels.

Carolina's target audience is newer users, and newer computers. While we'd like to accommodate everyone, and every situation, that just isn't possible.

No sound using either the multiple card wizard or alsa
Alsa says the audio card is Intel panther point

Any ideas?

thanks

You're welcome, Marv. Sorry to hear that the PAE kernel won't run on your setup. I'll discuss with Geoffrey about possibly offering a Carolina version with the 3.2.8 kernel as an alternative.

Did you run the alsa mixer from the terminal to ensure that none of the devices were muted? That's the only thing I can think of, outside of maybe needing to load a driver.

Yes, she's a bit fat...but it's necessary for the application support. Thanks for trying Carolina out. Much appreciated.
