Looking good so far. Smile

This computer is about 6 years old.

I also installed Wary 5.0 to my 3 year old Acer Aspire desktop which has an
Intel core 2 quad processor and Nvidia 8600 GT video card.
In the aspire I installed the devx and kernel source sfs and also
the newest nvidia driver for the graphics card. It's working well
too.I added a some apps to that one, Google Earth and VLC 106 (lupu
pets) and Pwidgets 2.31.I had to find a some extra libs to get vlc to
work and I needed to install a qt4.7 pet (40mb) that I made a while ago.

So it's working well on both computers.
Thanks

Interesting. Using the mouse that gave all the grief in RC (works normally on everything else), now find that highlighting in the URL box with SM seems to be a lot better (not cured), but highlighting in Abiword has become a disaster! There is detente in starting the highlight from the cursor, but much worse is a random amount of highlighting as well as in the start and finish positions of highlighting - just like it used to be in SM. Changing to a Logitech mouse seems to cure these problems, which certainly wasn't the case previously.
The mystery deepens...
Otherwise, everything seems to be working as advertised, thanks.

Did a full install on a SATA internal hard drive and my Logitech Trackman Wheel is not recognized. I keep a generic USB PS/2 mouse plugged in for events like this. Other USB devices are a UPS and a flash stick. I don't see any glaring errors in here:

I tested a new frugal install and an upgrade of a frugal install. Everything I have tested so far has worked as expected. Great work Barry!

One small point though. In the Blog you said "the first-boot dialog window that offers you a choice of locale now defaults to UTF8 on". It did not for me - at least I don't think it did and I have plenty of RAM. I did not check locale at the terminal so cannot be completely sure. Certainly, when I went to "Desktop -> Chooselocale country localisation" UTF-8 was not on. This could have been misreporting by the selection dialog. However, when I selected UTF-8 it was saved and worked as expected .

Scrolls OK for me in Opera 11.00.

I am surprised it displays at all - the HTML is full of errors.

I have had problems like that with a bad support under the mouse.
I guess it was electrostatic effect or something like that, The trick to cure was to raise the mouse and to slide it several times on another material.
It's worth to try it, or may be to clean some dust on the sensor or to change the support.
I have no problem at all with Abiword or any else appli.

I assumed you were using Opera 11.00 anyway. Haven't we totally converted you yet? Wink

Testing the site on Seamonkey scrolling is not particularly bad on my set up.
