Can one play an audio CD with Frenzy. Tried both xmms and mlayer but failed.

With xmms got following errormessage : "xmms-cdread: Unable to read audio: Inappropriate ioctl for device". There is a lot of correspondance on "inappropriate ioctl for device" on the internet but couldn't get a solution.

Thank you.

Bug: When I boot with parameters "lang=es gui", console's keyboard is spanish, but in gui or in a terminal started from gui, I have english keyboard, not spanish.

Software: I see that "best" browser is Opera. Why not to put Firefox, on this place? I think firefox is 'the facto' open browser. ;) . Anyway, is Opera working well? -I have tried Frenzy on vmware 5, and starting Opera, i see a full grey screen-. Perhaps a vmware problem?!

Congratulations. I see Frenzy very easy to use.

maybe nemesis packet injector should be included.
(is there a bug with the bootparams? i have no time to set them
it waits not the named 15 seconds but max 1 sec. whichs not that much)

"lang=es". This is not a bug, but a feature. Because of different handling of national keyboards Frenzy, when entered "lang" different from "en", enable two keyboard layouts for You can switch between them using Ctrl+Shift hotkey.

Opera. Well, I've tested Firefox and Opera before deciding which one I'll include. Opera has 52% smaller distribution size, 50% faster loads and consumes 45% less RAM than Firefox. For 200-250 Mb LiveCD this is very important.

Grey screen - this is an Opera main window :) Default resolution in VMWare is 800x600, and Opera is configured for 1024x768. Just move window - hold Alt and drag it.

Nemesis is included in Frenzy 1.0 distribution, see:

Frenzy must wait 15 secs, this is very strange behaviour. Do you start Frenzy in some kind of emulator (VMWare/QEMU/whatever)?

Would like to install latest versions of vim (vim 7.0) and mplayer (MPlayer 1.0pre8). Any package or port available?

Thank you.

The difference between standard and extended version described in release notes:
and in official documentation:

Bittorrent links work fine, here are direct links from linuxtracker webpage:

Why do I need an announce in newsline, when 1.0 release is announced above the newsline with all information provided? :)
