I believe there are some errors unsolved apart the image in i386 version. I'm installing an i386 version of edgy to test it right now. If you want to help me please add a comment and tell me what's wrong and what's your system. Thank you.

I followed all your instructions to the letter I hope. Readme was a great help. The error i get on the test is

:~/Desktop$ sudo usplash -c
Segmentation fault

plus a lot of random green boxes on the screen. Hope that helps fix the problem. BTW I'm using 6.06 (forgotten what its called, )

([CURRENT] 0.1 RC 1). When i click the link it asks me to sign in/join. It hasnt done that before with any of the other downloads. I presume it was a box you selected accidently or something like that.

Thanks

I've hosted it on imageshack at this address

That screen comes up immediately after pressing download.

I often use sendspace.com but i think there is a limit of one month.

The 'terminal' he describes in the readme is accessed by pressing CTRL+ALT+F1..F6, the test will work when run there.

I tried it on my Feisty Fawn and the bar is not well loading.

There is a big blurry black square instead of it.

Any idea?

PS: I added vga=791 on my grub default options.

Well as you're the second person with this problem i believe it's my fault and there's an error in the i386 version. I'm not at home right now but as soon as i come back i'll check it.

Thanks for support...
