One thing that I have not fixed.

It was reported that if the "Enable screensaver" checkbox is unticked, the screen still gets blanked.

Yeah, I don't know why.

pupX creates /root/.xset.sh, which gets executed in /root/.xinitrc.
All seems ok, except that the "s off" parameter has no effect. Weird.

Did you notice hiawatha issue I posted in beta2 thread?
I could run hiawatha and browse from "localhost" and pplog is working but if someone from outside tries to connect to server it doesn't let him, says "Failled to connect" (pure-ftpd works ok, so there's mistake regarding IP adress or similar) Maybe it's not bug but some permission problem in hiawatha config.

Subject description: ntpdate not working
 

Just installed 4.3beta3... I found that ntpdate exists (horray!), but when run from the command line I get the following error:
Error : Servname notg supported for ai_socktype

would this be a missing library/package?

Here is a most welcome 'feature': in Open Office there is an option to instruct the program to use system fonts instead of those the programmer expressed. Tools>Options>View. For some strange reason this finally works in this release. That is the first time EVER for me. No more scrappy fonts in OO. Yay!

Never mind... looks like it was because /etc/services was missing ntp, and psync adds the appropriate lines. could the default /etc/services file be updated?

Speaking of fonts, Seamonkey 1.18 renders so well that the need to install additional non-free fonts seems to be over. It also seems much better at tidying up its cache too, so my save file is a stable size.
To disable screensaver permanently drop this script in start-up

Code:
xset s off -dpms

Printer drivers seem limited. I guess to keep size to minimum.........

Subject description: power button
 

- This Beta also/still ignores both of my laptops' power buttons. An ACPI thing?

- Adding sfs packages still messes up the desktop icons with defaults upon reboot.

- Not having a network cable connected during boot still results in the otherwise previously configured network card not being configured/brought-up. Still annoying.


- The wallpaper too for-children/cartoonish, IMO.
- Too much blue in the icons, otherwise nice enough, IMO Smile


(frugal install 425; just copied the sfs, initrd.gz and vmlinuz from the iso, loaded from FreeDOS with LinLd)

The 1st one definitely (too) cheesy Very Happy

Dunno what to say about the 2nd one, other than it doesn't appeal to me personally... too deep blue and too sharp edges and too much contrast maybe Smile
