Post MEPIS 10.9.88 beta #1 released - bug reports &feedback here
Installed with unetbootin flash key.
Installation was nominal. The new localization mods to the installer look like they've always been there - good job!

I have the same 3 periods of freezing up right after boot as the modem-manager opens & closes /dev/ttyS1, S2 & S3, just as in alpha 4. Annoying.

After the freezes are over everything looks good so far.

Tim --

What about separating out hardware and software bug reports/feedback? If you like that, then can you change your subject and make an additional post?

I'm not sure it's that easy to classify.
Is a GUI freeze hardware or software?
It appears the modem-manager TTY freeze ups are a kernel locking bug in 2.6.36. Possibly another reason for Warren to go to 2.6.37 - if they have fixed the issue - that's not clear at the moment. Or possibly the behavior that causes the locking could be avoided in modem-manager. It doesn't happen on my laptop because the Comm port hardware is not "whitelisted" so modem-manager doesn't try to open & close the ports.

I don't know if I have a GUI freeze but I have the same problem on Alpha 4 and 5. I can't type in my password, after I have installed it, so I can't log in. I tried Reisers and EXT-3.

So that Warren will have some clue, please describe your hardware (in signature is easiest).

Post System Settings -- Lost & Found -- Printers??? Touchpad??? C
Running a fresh install of A5 on this P4/1024MB Vaio laptop. Had to immediately install the kde-config-touchpad app so I could fix the agonizingly slow touchpad mouse. Went to System Settings> Input Devises, and it wasn't there. Looked all over, went back and reinstalled the package, installed a couple other packages, still couldn't find it. Almost slammed the lid in disgust, but then just happened to scroll all the way to the bottom of System Settings and found a listing for the touchpad -- under Lost & Found!!! Along with Printers and CDs!!!

I mean, c'mon. That's just plain silly.

They explain Lost and Found as the place for applications that have a category which doesn't fit into any existing menus.
I would say touchpad configuration fits under input devices. So it is a bit odd it is put there. Just one of those little quirks. Nothing to get upset about. Patience.

I know what it's there for. Heck, it would be a stretch, but I could even see how touchpad might go there.

But Printers??? Audio CDs???

This is the kind of stuff that drives me crazy. Short trip, Ill grant you, but still... :confused:

Can the OP please change the title to read
MEPIS 10.9.88 alpha #5 released - bug reports & feedback here

Currently, it's
MEPIS 10.9.8 alpha #5 released - bug reports & feedback here

Just reloaded onto my netbook, looking fine for starters, re-installing all my favorite apps as I type, saved my apt cache so marginal download required, only 1.6MB out of 363MB, gotta love that feature of Linux.
