One question; will it work with grub or must I use grub4dos instead? And if so, how?

Grub is actually there, although there is no front-end for it. It can be run from the terminal. Type grub --help to see the list of options.

If you want to try out something more user-friendly, open the package manager and type boot-loader-manager in the search box. This package works for creating and/or editing both grub and grub4dos setups.



Thanks, that should do it. I have several other puppies and couldn't see how to add Carolina.

You can use the devx for 003, just rename it 004.
Can't take a break. Next up is gonna be a Saluki-023-b. It'll be a Saluki with a new kernel (3.2.13-c non-PAE) and some upgraded packages. But it won't have any of the default packages changed, just some of them upgraded.

We're trying a new links page out on the first post of this thread. It utilizes html5. Hopefully it works well for everyone, and doesn't cause any confusion. Basically, it was a new toy that Geoffrey and I wanted to try out.

well, the new links look good... I think it's better that way rather than having to click separate ones from the 1st page of the thread

thanks

EDIT- it looks a bit weird though if you're using a browser that doesn't support html5, I have my firefox on mobile phone user agent... and the links have duplicates

Right clicking on an Icon or it's label does not bring up any way to change anything

Did I misunderstand something?

That was for a ROX based desktop. Assuming you are in Carolina or lina, try using the xfce power tools in the control panel.

Aha! That did it - once I figured out how to save the changes.

Thanks!

glad to see carolina 004 is out. i have been a big fan of saluki and carolina for a while. and i am doing localization of carolina in Chinese to let carolina be more friendly to some of my friends. i know there is a thing called "pup-volume-monitor" which offers convenient function of managing and mounting drives. i just wonder could anyone be kind enough to spend some time explaining the concept of how to let pup-volume-monitor autostart at startup and be able to monitor any prompt changes to drives such as a new usb stickdrive plugged in. i know this may not be relevant to this thread, but i really want to figure out how this functions. i hereby do not mean to make any offense against any carolina developers and users. i will really appreciate any help on this. please forgive my poor English if anything i wrote caused any misunderstanding. thank you

regards
michael

The pup-volume-monitor is started automatically on both Saluki and Carolina by default. It does this with a custom volume-monitor script located in the /etc/init.d directory.

You can find a lot more information about the pup-volume-monitor, including its' source code, from here. akash_rawal is the author of the software. He gives a pretty good description and is good about answering questions.

Good luck in your efforts to localize carolina.
