Potato install report
Boot floppies 2.2.15
Flawless, right up until the end... If you've not tried it yet, you
I logged in, typed `startx', and it says it cannot find the mouse
device, since I'd configured it to use /dev/gpmdata via `anXious',
right after the initial reboot... `anXious' is great.
I ran `apt-get install gpm', and it ought to have worked; it's hooked
to the ps2 port &c... this stupid mouse doesn't work. I need to get
one that does... Ok, it's just broken. I'll return it tomorrow.
Cheap peice of plastic serial mouse.
`startx' and `xdm' logins produce blank X with no applications or
anything. But it works, and is properly configured. Good job,
I think we should set it up so that XDM is *not* installed, so that
`gdm' *is* installed, and also make it so that a plain `startx' will
run a Gnome session, iff the `task-gnome*' stuff is installed.
It's still a kit, but it's way better than the last release.
A few months in the laboratory often saves several hours at the library.
