Disk /dev/sda: 515 MB, 515375104 bytes
64 heads, 32 sectors/track, 491 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2048 * 512 = 1048576 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks  Id System
/dev/sda1   *           1         491      502768   6 FAT16

This is my regularly used TC test USB stick. Formatted with WIN XP, installed with unetbootin. Same procedure works with 2.6, 2.5, 2.4, ... One more thing. After base system starts, /dev/sda1 is not mounted. Extending waitusb time doesn't help.

After boot is it listed in /etc/fstab?

Yes, it is there and can be mounted with 'mount /mnt/sda1'

ondemand test needs to be changed to:
[ "$DESKTOP" == "flwm" ] || [ "$DESKTOP" == "flwm_topside" ] || exit 1

Last line needs to be changed to:
/usr/bin/${DESKTOP}_restart

I got "ondemand" to work by editing the script to comment out line 3 ["DESKTOP" == , etc
and then
changing the final line to /usr/bin/flwm_topside_restart, so the issue is indeed with "topside".

Thanks to all; this is a significant improvement!

Glad to hear that it is being well received, bugs in all  ;)
I will have a much cleaner rc2 very soon.
Thanks to a great community for much feedback.

My cd drive is not listed in rox nor in fstab in this release. In 2.6, it is listed as sr0.

What does cat /etc/sysconfig/cdroms display?
What does ls -l /dv/sr0 display?

This release candidate has many of those items that I have long desired to make tc easy to use - ondemand for lightning booting, and updating of all the extensions in /tce/optional. This absolutely rocks.

Thanks Robert, for making computing an enjoyable experience for me again.
