Minitar Wlan Card support, Sabayon 3.5 Feature requests/idea

Postby vk4akp » Sun Nov 25, 2007 5:44

Hi, my request is simple.

I'd like to see driver support added to future distro's for the following card.

Minitar PCMCIA (MNW2BPCM) & PCI Wireless Card (MNW2BPCI)

The linux source for this is available here. ... =file&id=8

Sounds like an idea to me. I think that if we got the info out there, and people took the time to realize it (Which won't happen, ever.) then we could reduce the need for serious-noob help, and by that I mean... well look at my signature, you'll get the idea. I mean I've seen a lot of idiots come into the channel and I give them one command !gwiki Compiz Fusion and they're gone. And they come back the next day "Oh I got it to work, thank you.". Just that easy. Also I would like to see the gnome application media-gfx/eog included in 3.5 for the fact that it is kind of Windows Picture Viewer. It just opens. It is a quick, light application with the options to open the image in a editing program as you wish. It is much easier to than F-Spot Photo Viewer in my opinion.

I'd quite like to see gltail included, "realtime logfile visualization. View real-time data and statistics from any logfile on any server with SSH", I think it fits in with Sabayons' bleeding edge philosophy. Looks cool too. -- has video of gltail in action.

Given that 3.5 loop1 won't arrive until the start of December I am guessing that 3.5 Final won't pop up until the end of January, and my suggestions are based on this assumption:

Kernel 2.6.24
Xserver 1.41
Alsa 1.15
KDE 4.0

Software (KDE4 version where possible):

Joost: Isnt sabayon linux all about the cutting edge? at least have the option to install kde4.0 at startup, and have it as a session in session manager... but make sure you warn the user that it has bugs.

kde4 release is being delayed, release not till mid Jan now. Dec 20th was the date of the last delay, but changed once again. ... e_Schedule

Some distros don't want to put in KDE4 till 4.0.1 even so it becomes more stable.

It's not up to me to decide what is on the DVD to start with.

I did test KDE 4 as is from the special gentoo overlay and must say its totally unusable as a desktop for now. Apart from that its kinda messy having it playing nice aside 3.5.8 (but its possible todo it). I think there is a point where its not bleeding edge but just not done yet.

I know for sure as soon as its good enough Sabayon comes standard with KDE4.

Thunderbird. Most definitely. I have no idea why it got thrown out in 3.4 in the first place.

cryptsetup 1.0.5 (step up from 1.0.4) definitely needed to access newer encrypted files such as lrw-benbi-*
