Positive: 1+. Only the minimum. I could install those parts, which I need and not what someby else wants. 2+. BT-GPS and TangoGPS running after I gave 7 commands. 4 is the minimum. 3+. WLAN works fine 4+. Thunderbird, gpsd installed fine with synaptic, others from dnloaded files within Nautilus. 5+. Old data is still there in /dev/sdb ! 6+. USB and SD memories OK 7+. smb OK to my home servers 8+. looks cute.
Negative: 1-. Thinderbird Lightning ver 0.9 is not in repositories. OK version can be found (lightning-extension_0.9+nobinonly-0mint1_i386.deb) 2-. Saunalahti mokkula (GPRS modem) don't start by itself. Didn't have time to play with it. 3-. Only one user 4-. There seems to be a swap on /dev/sda 5-. ext3, some might have wanted ext2. 6-. noatime missing from /etc/fstab 7-. /home/<user> in /dev/sda1. Easy to fix and it might be a good thing after all ( I like to have /dev/sdb1 mounted as /home, as I have in all my PC ) 8-. I didn't totally like the partitioner. It somehow just didn't work in my eyes. 9-. Two toolbars eating real estate. 10-. Something wrong with the keyboard repeat rate. I get a lot of doubles and triples.
Installed so far: Thunderbird, TB Lightning 0.9, GPSD, TangoGPS, VLC, Some addons for FF. Going to install: kpaint,

Good thing there are scripts for stuff that you can do with a text editor... like add noatime to fstab.
What is the root password for the live cd? This is ridiculous. I can't even install it. I used the boot disk creation feature on 8.10 on my main machine. Should have I used unetbootin? But no password that I try works. So I'm guessing that its not my password. wtf!?!?
[EDIT] Yikes! Don't know where that passwd came from, but I re-liveUsb-ed it with unetbootin and everything is fine now. Please excuse that outburst.
