Synaptics, TTF and the goodies.So far :
-Synaptic touchpad drivers are included now with XFree 4.3.0. So they don't need installing anymore as a separate package.
- I have included TTF support either through freetype2 or throught xtt. Off course that includes anti-aliasing as well.
- Distro is based atm on 2.4.21-pre7 kernel / acpi-patch 2.4.21-pre7 and 2.4.21 preempt kernel patch. The majority of all devices will be built as modules and with an autoclean function ( Yep autoclean, will unload the module after an idle time not to use to much memory ). I choose that approach cause considering the Alsa sound system is very modular, on my 5660, a lsmod as root fills the console. I mean we do need lots of modules and even more on the 888X considering the mp3 player/Smartcard reader and TV tuner.
- The most important packages are built from sources on my box and will be installed as binary from the cd ( XFree86, Gnome 2.3, sound ). Why ? Cause i did use optimisation for pentium 4 ( CFLAGS="-march=pentium4" ) and well, it limit the distro to pentium4 but really boost performance. gcc 3.2.3, unstable branch but the rest of the shipped binary are built with 3.2.
beakmyn, thanks for the offer, it is needed, as i don't have a 888X. I will post soon a iso on ftp, but as you guy read ( maybe ) my 5660 is on warranty return atm for 2 weeks. No other laptop, no way to get that hdd backep up somewhere to carry work. Hope it will be fast.
