Well, even though i'm only around here every now and then i'll plug my derivative's release anyway. Just want to thank you guys for all the advice, testing and ranting you did, without you Morphix simply wouldn't exist :) Dammit, getting all mushy...

Cheers,
Alex

www.morphix.org

https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=71814 for downloads (slow mirror, dl.xs4all.nl will allow me back on soon...)

Most important changes:
X resolution fixed, bootoptions honored, preliminary alsa support, nvidia install, scsi install (still a work in progress, working on it). Changelog follows, have fun!

23-04-2003 (version 0.3-5 base, all mainmodules)
"The slightly-less-borked release"
Focus was on fixing a number of annoying bugs, no serious features
have been added
base:
- X resolution bug turned back. Nice try, no cigar
- added nvidia devicenodes, should fix installing with nvidia
cards. Also fixed the /dev/zero problem, thanks Luuk!
- translucency slightly updated, dpkg'ing debian packages works
on-the-fly
- preliminary alsa support added, "morphix alsa" and "morphix
alsa=alsa-module" bootoptions. Needs testing & debugging

all mainmods:
- new installer, fixes critical bug, installing with scsi drives
will work, however having a scsi drive as root won't work as of
yet.
- gaim plugin's loaded on default
light:
- added dillo
kde:
- added K3B
- modified the iconset... again :)
heavy:
- new gtk2 theme
game:
- pingus 0.6!

And a lot of stuff I forgot...

Great stuff, keep it coming! BTW, when downloading MOPHIXgame3-5.iso I get this link from www.morphix.org

http://morphix.sourceforge.net/modules/mydownloads/viewcat.php?cid=5

and it says that there's 0 bytes there.

I then used

https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=71814

and got a pile of mirrors from which to download this iso from which I'm downloading now.

Just wondering if you happened to throw some Winmodem drivers into this release?

Nope, as far as i understood winmodem-drivers aren't available to be freely distributed. The reason why nvidia is in there is because they allow it to be freely distributed. I'm willing to go far, but i wasn't planning on breaking licences ;)
