I have already adjusted the title. It should now read 88 instead of just 8.

Is there a alpha4 to alpha5 delta file?

{the delta might be pretty big because of the libqt4 and KDE 4.5.3 upgrades}

I do not see one at the subscriber site, just 32 and 64 bit DVD isos. Still no official announcement.

Once it announced as an alpha, I will create the delta as before. Warren will do the beta and RC deltas himself (he said...).

Fails to boot in any of the available modes, the same as Alphas 1, 2, and 3.
After "Starting GDM, Starting CUPS", screen goes black with cursor at top left. No response from keyboard.

:bawling:

I don't burn dvd's but I am able to get a successfull fromiso boot with the following stanza:

Code:
title  SimplyMEPIS-DVD-TEST_10.9.88_32.iso at hdb8 (sdb8)
root (hd1,7)
kernel /iso/Mepis-11.0/vmlinuz fromhd=UUID=018ce44d-bfe8-47c7-a9a9-68375bc1b725 fromiso=/iso/Mepis-11.0/SimplyMEPIS-DVD-TEST_10.9.88_32.iso vga=791 quiet drvr=nv res=1024x768 vsync=50-160 hsync=30-70 confx
initrd /iso/Mepis-11.0/initrd.gz
boot


{btw, code blocks don't seem to be displayed properly. The last portion of the 'kernel' line is being displayed as a separate line (the kernel line begins with 'kernel' and ends with 'confx'), in code blocks with the old forum software you would get a horizontal scroll when a line exceeded a certain length}

I'm using a FX5200 nvidia video card. Even if I did burn a dvd it's nvidia boot option wouldn't work because the pre-installed 195.36.31 nvidia driver isn't usable with my FX5200 video card (the FX5200 needs a legacy driver like the 173.14.xx or 96.43.xx series drivers). I believe the drvr=nv and confx cheats that I add are what allow me to get a successfull boot.

-64bit

DVD burn :rolleyes:
All modes of boot resulted in BSOD with cursor in upper left (didn't try nVidia because I have ATI)
linux did not crash, looked like it was only non-functional kdm load...responded to keyboard Ctl-Alt-Del back to console display of normal shutdown sequence text on-screeen

USB Flashdrive via unetbootin :pint:
Booted perfectly...fresh install worked perfectly

hey big guy :)

i brought this up earlier -> in the ps, i think it just needs to be turned on somewhere.
btw: SimplyMEPIS-DVD-TEST_10.9.88 is now on at least one of the public mirrors :woot:, my question for both of you would be. can i use the nvidia option from usb drive or fromiso boot? it's almost a moot point, just save me one operation as i certainly intend a fresh install.

tia: for any replies

"Classic_MEPIS_Xorg_config" mode includes confx; adding drvr=nv didn't help, sadly.
