Reqs for 3.1 from users of 3.0

Let's get a request thread going here for people who HAVE ACTIVELY USED 3.0 for things you'd like to see in 3.1.

If you request something that's ALREADY IN 3.0, i'm going to come to your house and punch you square in the neck.

Install via PC unrar --> FTP worked fine, so it's not like the files are corrupted or anything.

HOWTO: VNC Res > 640x480 (regardless of console res)

Having VNC resolutions of 640x480 is hardly useful. Below are instructions for how to change it.

How far does it get before it freezes?

-Never gets past EvoX "Loading" screen
-Black screen following EvoX "Loading" screen
-Some text on black screen, freezes after that

SniperFox - i think what spathi is trying to do is teach people how to actually do things manually so that they get an understanding of how the operating system works.. rather than just click things on a GUI, its all well and good knowing all the GUI's but when things go wrong and X11 wont boot wha...

Gentoo Home 3 install via SSH?

Has anyone gotten this to work? My SSH terminal drops shortly after the unrar process, my xbox blinks red/off, and there is no video on the screen. If I try to reboot and launch GentooX (via CD or via EvoX menu) I get initrd error.

Has Home 3 installation via SSH been tested?

Wow, I can't imagine running office XP on a WINDOWS computer with only 64 megs of RAM, must less linux + emulation layer.

Are you VERY VERY sure that OpenOffice.org 1.1 won't do whatever it is you need to do (hint: It open and saves Word / Excel / PowerPoint XP files with 100% compatibility)???

garretwp: Try unplugging all of your usb devices except for 1 xpad, this will generally let me get past that screen. Once linux has fully loaded, just plug your keyboard / mouse / whatever in then.

Can the window manager selector dealy have "Don't automatically start X / Server mode" too? You could still login then "startx", of course. That's an excellent idea, but I think you're going to have some implementation issues. Perhaps something with custom runlevels (since I believe gentoo ignores r...

My requests.

Firebird is decent, but I can't imagine why you wouldn't use konq. I also prefer Kmail / Kontact to Thunderbird... must be something wrong with me! Can we have TightVNC instead of regular? It helps quite a bit for those of us without much upstream bandwidth. Either way, make it on by default but eas...
