I am running this Live at work. I don't have Xwindows restarting on this box, anyway.

The video is working OK... I will try this on my new box once I get home.

Got a Dell Optiplex 745, Pentium D with Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT dual head video card.
Do ya think the dual monitor function will be working OK or will there be some tweaking needed in the xorg file?

As soon as we can shovel a spot to set it up we'll be loading the critter with yer latest offering & let ya know how it's doing.

Thanks a bunch again there Ray, can't say enough how much all your hard work is appreciated.

I tried the latest "Hardy: version on my new computer.

It loaded just fine Live. The video was right, only one problem that I couldn't solve... No network connection... My built in NIC is too new for Hardy... I am posting this from PhoenixOS... Ubuntu 10.04 version... which of course recognizes my nic...

From Sys Info:

kernel: 2.6.32-23-generic-pae (#37-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jun 11 09:26:55 UTC 2010)

GCC Version: 4.4.3 (i486-linux-gnu)

xorg version: unknown (16 June 2010 09:31:32AM)

Sorry about that Ray... I tried. One question though... I couldn't find GParted in the new Hardy version... am I blind and missed it, or did you decide not to include it in that release???

I actually forgot 3 things: shredder that quick file browser ken mentioned, gparted and something else cant remember at the moment. I will be making one more iso before doing the karmic and lucid version. Thanks for trying. Hardy version really was going to be dropped, I only kept it for those that cant get the lucid to work, for people like Deffi he can NOW use PhoenixOS where before he couldnt. This way more people be happy with it.

Thanks again for checking.

It should but never tested it with dual you might have to tweak xorg file. You are all quite welcome.

That makes sense... Hardy is after all 4 generations (5 if you include Maverick) behind.

It do make a difference... Wink Smile Especially on newer hardware.

As a follow up...

I decided to run Update Manager and found out that there were 146 updates Shocked Shocked Shocked including one to update the Kernel to 2.6.32-24-generic-pae (#39-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jul 28 07:39:26 UTC 2010)...

Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed

I guess I should check a little more often... Wink Wink Wink

Anyway... the updates performed flawlessly and I am now using the latest, greatest, with Ray's cool customizations ( plus a few of my own Smile )...

I will test older versions for Ray, but I will wait for the final release of Lucid for my production hard drive. Thanks for your efforts Ray!

Yup it sure did, I had to fix the Lucid bugs before I could even work on making an iso, it was not fun. Now I have lucid working good, as soon as I finish up hardy:have to get back to making that iso.

I don't know how you did it but you have everything in PhoenixOS that I prefer.
You must be reading my mind when I'm not looking.

In Win xp if you wanted to copy a picture from the browser to wallpaper you had to do it manually. You clicked on the picture and selected copy. Then you had to open "Paint" in windows and click on paste.

Then the picture would appear in the paint program then click on install to desktop wallpaper. It was a windows thing not a browser thing.

Question?... When I click "save to wallpaper" where does it go?

I have to go to the Doctor be back later.

yes thats because you're using the windows version and not the linux version. Very Happy

the windows version isn't identical to the linux version (i mean its the same product but not the same interface tweaks etc, i mean its built for different operating systems) just like the mac version isnt identical to the linux or windows version etc etc.

Yes I was just pointing out that "Set as Desktop Background" is a windows function and not a firefox function.In windows I can use any browser and it will work.
I don't know about Linux that's why I was asking.

It appears to be a Firefox issue. Using a KDE system, works on a modified Firefox 2.x, but fails on a 3.0 Mozilla build...
