ditto on Danums build with the steampunk splashy. I also have the login splash and nothing changes with it. Jerry
Yes, with the Plymouth steampunk splash, a plate is supposed to drop down and the boot messages appear on it. You can see how it is supposed to work when you do the live Plymouth test procedure, but those messages and the suspend/shutdown parts just don't work on Debian.
I have finished the last piddly bits of KDE 4.7.4 on the virtual machine, khangman, kanagram, and that sort of package. I tried the newer kdepim sources from Kubuntu, but they fail--it looks like they need a backport of the boost libraries in order to finish building. As far as I can tell, there's no other newer programs introduced between 4.6.5 and 4.7.4, since I was hunting them down individually at packages.debian.org. I'll try a boost backport later after all this is done.
I have built 64-bit packages up to the point where I will have to install the new libraries and uninstall KDE in order to continue, but this will go much faster than 32-bit, since I don't have to edit three or more text files per package. Also will coordinate with Tim as to where these will go--we won't let anyone get at them before they are ready this time.
One thing I plan to test is that Marble can now download maps and be used like Street Atlas USA (tm) to find addresses and routes when offine.
