Im still having some printer, network printer and usb issues with pclinuxos updates. I've been digging into hotplug and udev and have gotten a few more printers functional now. Usbkeys are still dead and I know it is related to udev and hotplug. Im hoping these issues will clear out in the next few days and I am able to cut an updated iso.

I also found xorg 6.8.2 released today so I built a set of binaries and uploaded them to the premuim server and ibiblio.org. Tonight I noticed in the forums a person who has the unichrome video card that will only go 800x600 so I downloaded the r30 unichrome driver release and added to my next build of xorg 6.8.2-2tex which I will post tomorrow. Hopefully his video will be able to go to a higher resolution.

There was a posting on one of the kde mailing lists about adding export KDE_NO_IPV6=1 to /usr/bin/startkde that might improve the performance of KDE. I tried it and had Sal give it a try on his machine but neither of us could see any difference.

Tom sent a few emails about some good updates to the mklivecd scripts. He has done a tremendous job of getting these scripts updated. Ivan and Tom almost have unionfs working with the livecd making the cdr appear writable like a hard drive. It seems to be working with fluxbox but not yet with KDE.

I finally got around to jrangels new logo graphic for pclinux. I think is looks pretty good and I posted a poll to get some user feedback. I'd like to get away from the little blue penquin due to some possible future problems using it.
