Outstanding! Thanks Rahul!

I'll fetch the 64 bit version when you get it ready.

You might want to check your spelling. As the owner of several of them over the years, it's Dalmatian. A google search on Dalmation turns up zilch. ;)

Installing 32Bit version now in VirtualBox.

But wait! It's starting to look like it has that same issue F14 Beta had with the black screen on a VitrualBox installation. Wish I remembered what the solution was. Test install?

False alarm. Installation completed.

Which is quite an advantage if you want to search for my remix :-) Yeah, it was a mistake but it is just a codename and I realized it only after I finished composes and left it at that.

Well, Joey is a bit miffed, but he'll get over it. He admires a good marketing gimmick.

I downloaded the iso and wrote it out to a USB stick. It boots OK, but every mp3 or flv I try to play just crashes totem.

If you can provide a file to check, I can test that explicitly but otherwise it works for me. you might have to report bugs to Totem and check if other players work better. Xine, Mplayer and vlc are included by default.

Xine won't start, Movie Player crashes, the others play sound but no video. Mplayer gives the error shown.

I added the rpm extension to get the upload to work, so just remove it.

Did you verify the SHA256 checksum to make sure you got the download correctly? Did you burn in a slow speed?

Checksum was good, and I use a USB flash stick, so no CD is involved. In any case, I figured it out, and it's my bad. That box only has 512MB RAM and it just isn't enough. No problems on another box with more RAM.

Thanks for the post Rahul,
I had forgotten about this great spin. I downloaded it and dd'd it to a usb. Everythng I tried worked great.

Thank you for all your hard work.

Thanks for the feedback. 64-bit edition now available for download folks.

is it compatible with eeepc? i mean two and three fingers tapping also wireless. thanks

Wireless really depends on the specific model. Tapping should work. I don't have a EEEPC handy to test but it is a live image. Boot it up and check.
