Wow! Carolina 005 is out Smile

Thanks Elroy and Geoffrey... merry christmas to you guys, and merry christmas to Jemimah too, and to everyone Smile


I packaged virtualbox version 4.2.4 r81684 for the 3.2.13 kernel
It doesn't require you to load the kernel sources/devx
It includes the guest additions ISO and preloaded extension pack.

A new version. Wonderful.

I've downloaded lina 005 twice and the md5 does not match the text.

I get b28313637de62319e6f35bc004aa11da,

Do I still have a problem?

My lina 005 is not loading the zdrive. That's why the md5 does not match.

Elroy: would you check the download to see if it uploaded correctly?
If so, I will try downloading it again.


Thanks for the Christmas present!

PostPosted: Thu 20 Dec 2012, 18:29    Post subject: Explanation and more change kernel questions  

Hi Elroy & JamesC,

I wasn't really MIA. Just lurking in the shadows with nothing significant to add. And mostly playing with the precises. But I was trying to put together a minimal (for internet cafe only) OS for a Thinkpad R51 –basically the same specs as my T42-- and so naturally thought of lina-lite. Unfortunately –despite my urging against it-- the person wanted to use google-chrome (from Saluki), and it wouldn't run complaining of missing libs. So I figured I'd start with Carolina –in which google-chrome12 ran fine-- and build an adrive containing only those apps whose functions I wasn't sure could be eliminated and those I wanted to include. It was built on my Quad-core, run superbly, but transporting it to my T42 reminded me that Carolina used a PAE-enabled kernel. After your response reminding me that lina-lite didn't use a PAE-enabled kernel, it was a simple job just to substitute the adrive I built in Carolina for lina-lite's default adrive.

But now that I'm again interested in how to change kernels, your responses still have me confused. You've both referred me to either kernel pets or a kernel sfs. How do the relate to Custom Builder? or Don't they? How are they employed? That is, what steps does one take using them to change kernel?

Thanks in advance,

mikesLr

You can navigate to where you have locally saved a kernel pet when the custom-builder asks if you'd like to use a different kernel (and you've selected 'Yes'). Believe it or not, it's as simple as that.

005: Nice, thanks and sentiments reciprocated.
However, seems as if damn Adobe flash fiasco strikes again? Flash was absent or inoperable with the default FF version. I had to load the middle file offered from PPM, NOT the 'preferred' 11.....243 to get BBC/iPlayer running successfully. The install message seems to think there might be a version already present but wasn't certain? Had all this before, many times!
Everything fine and dandy now.

Just want to say thanks to you and everyone involved for all the great work in the development of carolina.

For your information, I have posted 2 messages about the availability of 2 Chinese Language pets for lina-005 and lina-002, one for Traditional Chinese and one for Simplified Chinese.

When you apply these language pets to lina, you will get:

1. 99% Chinese desktop (either Traditional or Simplified Chinese)
2. locale changed to zh_HK.utf8 or zh_CN.utf8
3. SCIM Chinese Input Method with 21 Chinese Input Methods
4. Chinese menus for many applications, including Thunar file manager, Geany editor, Libre Office
5. Chinese font wqy-microhei.ttf

The links to these 2 messages are:

Happy Holidays.

Hi ally,

Go to Control Panel-->Desktop-->XfcePowerTools. From there you can change the desktop icon font colors.

EDIT, New version Xfce-Theme-Manager-0.2.3, also works with lina-lite, those that have downloaded Xfce-Theme-Manager-0.2.2 Please update to the latest.

Here's something to try, Xfce Theme Manager, it works quite well.

As well as selecting wallpapers, icons, cursors and themes, you can also position buttons, title layout and change fonts in the advanced settings.
