You can see the memory used when you run "free" - it's the last column (it will always be bigger than your basesfs (in this case, it will be larger than 1.2G) because in addition to the basesfs, it will contain actual cached files).
Yes I did run free too, and it's numbers confused me.
It showed something around 1.6Gb. I will check later again.

Thanks.

Apparently chromecast for VLC is only available in the windows version ATM.

Looks like us Linux dudes will have to wait a little longer Grrr.

Congratulations on a solid release!
I updated from 710b smoothly so I did not need to repeat the macbook-specific mods.
All works as expected.
One little thing is that MS DOC files appear as compressed archives and the archiving app is trying to handle them.
That is not nice after M$ joined linux foundation and became a major sponsor... Razz

Other than that could handle everything in the macbook. If only the linux kernel can do a bit better job with power consumption on the mac.

So what strikes me is that this never happen before in my usage of fatdog. And I have been using the last 5 releases as my main OS be it a beta or not. I was always able to upload files from spot and not just from /spot/downloads.

It's hard to tell why doesn't it behave like before anymore.
AFAIK nothing related has changed between Beta and Final.
In order to upload anything from /root/spot, a file in question must have permissions set to allow "World" group read it, unless its ownership is 'spot:spot'.

Hmm, can't reproduce it.
What's the MIME type of one of these files?
Code:
# file Untitled\ 1.doc
Untitled 1.doc: Composite Document File V2 Document, Little Endian, Os: Windows, Version 1.0, Code page: -535, Revision Number: 1, Total Editing Time: 00:18, Create Time/Date: Fri Dec  9 15:19:51 2016, Last Saved Time/Date: Fri Dec  9 15:20:09 2016
#
# file -i Untitled\ 1.doc
Untitled 1.doc: application/msword; charset=binary
#
# rox -m Untitled\ 1.doc
application/msword
#
# ls -l /etc/xdg/rox.sourceforge.net/MIME-types/application_msword
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 35 Nov 29 04:39 /etc/xdg/rox.sourceforge.net/MIME-types/application_msword -> /usr/local/bin/defaultwordprocessor
#
# grep msword /usr/share/applications/defaults.list
application/msword=defaultwordprocessor.desktop; defaultwordprocessor.desktop;
#

Greetings!

@gobbi - check /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

You've got this random eth numbers probably because eth0 has already been assigned to the MAC address of the machine on which you did your remaster.

There are possible solutions:
a) remove this file before you complete the remaster. ...


Thank you jamesbond Exclamation
Removing that file made the wired interface become eth0 again , after the remaster .

Ok, I think know what's going on.
The problem is this file should have .docx extension.
If it has .doc extension, it's seen as archive, because MS OpenXML files (unlike real '.doc' files) are zip archives and since the content of such a file doesn't fit the defined match values for 'application/msword', it apparently falls back to 'application/zip'.

TL;DR just change the extension to .docx. Wink

Greetings!

Subject description: successful extrasfs loading
 

yes, extrasfs on my sda1 loaded successfully.
my menu entry is :

title BOOT FD710__FINAL
kernel (hd0,0)/fatdog/fd710/vmlinuz extrasfs=device:sda1:/fatdog/sfs_dir/test.sfs
initrd (hd0,0)/fatdog/fd710/initrd

HAHA, thanks for all the dev team for such great distro. With this new feature of auto-loading extrasfs at boot time,
i think i will never have to do re-master again !

wish you merry Linx'mas & happy new year.

They are not docx files. They are doc files generated by recent WORD so they can be compatible with some production machines that can not handle docx.

I could change the extension on the USB back and forth depending on the machine, but I thought would be better if FD could handle this (BTW Puppies and other Linuxes have no trouble with these files)

I checked in Tahr and it's the other way around (see screenshot), that's why it works there.

Anyway, after some tinkering I think I found a workaround.
First, delete (or rename to *.bak) /usr/share/mime/packages/libreoffice.xml, then:
Code:
update-mime-database /usr/share/mime

and refresh the dir where the *.doc is.

Looks like this file somehow interferes with the way ROX acquires MIME type of a given file.
See if it works for you as well.

Greetings!

I do not see Thunderbird listed in the 710-Final Gslapt package list.

Is it available for Fatdog64 710-Final?

If I remember correctly someone discussed using it on an earlier version of Fatdog64.

Any help finding a recent Thunderbird that would run on Fatdog64_710-Final would be appreciated.

Thank you.

@eowens2

The easiest way is to go to the web site and click on Free Download.
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/

Extract the file thunderbird-45.5.1.tar.bz2 somewhere outside of your savefile if you use one. If you use a save directory with plenty of space, extract it there.

Inside the thunderbird directory that has just been created, drag and drop the thunderbird binary to your desktop.

If you want to integrate it into your menu system, create a desktop file and a launcher script.

Cheers
