This page collects relevant information concerning GoboLinux version
007. This file can be considered a companion to the documentation included in
the CD, and will be regularly updated as we get feedback in the mailing list.
On the installed system
makeinfo binary from Texinfo is was not correctly linked (due to an conflict with TeTex makeinfo).
Running "SymlinkProgram -c overwrite Texinfo" is recommended for everybody that installed 007.
GDKXFT has a missing dependency in the CD, the FreeType package.
Download it at the packages pages if you plan to use GDKXFT.
Though listed in the menu.lst file, GRUB is not compiled with splashimage
support. The graphical bootloader from the CD is IsoLinux.
The patches stored in /Depot/Sources/Linux are not correct. To use the
kernel sources, revert the patches with patch -R and, if desired, apply
only the GoboHide patch. To access the compressed loopback image from
the ISO, compile the cloop module separately.
Problems have been reported with supermount. It is not enabled by default,
and we reccomend avoiding its use.
Some programs available inside CD didn't run as well as they should. Running
a 'full' GoboLinux within CD is a recent feature and is being improved gradually.
Some detected problems are listed bellow (if you know a solution to some of them,
- TeTex does not work;
- To run some application within KDE without using an terminal (e.g., menus, ALT+F2),
you need to specify the full path to it (/bin/ is enough). The PATH environment
variable seems not to be used.
Up to now, we did'nt have any unsolved booting problem with the GoboLinux 007 CD.
If the CD does not boot in your machine, try disabling the DMA option for your CDROM in the BIOS.
