Just curious, what boot loader and which version are being used for those experiencing issues with 2.6?
Does updating your boot loader help?

USB install is done with UNETBOOTIN but behaviour is the same runnin the system from CD.

OK. Now we are getting somewhere.
I will try updating isolinux to see if that make the CD boot.
Can you try an update to unetbootin?

Using latest unetbootin-windows-377.exe result is the same.

if issue is isolinux, was it also necessary to revert squashfs ?

So unetbootin does not support upx'ed kernels. However, you should be able to use Tiny Core's usbinstall to get a working pendrive that does,

I don't understand the question, unless it is on why we decided to standardize on squashfs/4096? The answer to that is, to try to simplify.

Yes, this is what I wanted to try also this night.

Now that dialog has been removed, XVesa Setup is awkward to use. Perhaps the list of resolutions could be laid out in a table that would be easier to read. (And white on black is fine with me.)

Result with stick created with usbinstall on a desktop machines:

Type h - works fine on desktop PC, 'Boot error' on Aspire notebook
Type e - works fine on desktop PC, boots on Aspire but freeze randomly
Type z - 'Boot error' on Aspire known from past experience, not tested now

This indicates that issue is not UNETBOOTIN specific.

I am booting with grub4dos.  I also booted directly from a USB using the netbook bios.  Same problems with Unable to load the System Description Tables error.

I have added paging capability to select.

Here is a bug with appbrowser. Instead of saying an extension has already been downloaded it displays a wget error:
Quote
Error: wget: server returned error: HTTP/1.1 416 Requested Range Not Satisfiable on sed.tcz

How to reproduce:
1. "Download Only" sed.tcz through appbrowser
2. Try to "Download Only" sed.tcz again

I had generic messages but got complaints. Now I only pass on the error message from the utilty, in this case it could be busybox wget or GNU wget depending on extensions loaded.
