Not bad but I prefer your AmigaOS4 workbench shot. ;-)

As for Compiz, I have not bothered to try it out. I've used in on other (x86) systems and the extra eye candy added a lot of graphic overhead which I eventually I got tired of and switched off. Just MHO though.

! I used the Alternate install CD, recompiled the kernel to include support for devtmpfs

Hi Pat.
Is it possible that you will share this kernel with us.
Thank you in advance :)

Hello
I have 2 menu items.
One for debian and one for mint.
Both are made in this way
CFE> setenv-p MENU_2_LABEL "Debian "
CFE> setenv-p MENU_2_COMMAND "boot-elf-noints-FATF cf0: vmlinux39"
CFE> setenv-p MENU_3_LABEL "MINT"
CFE> setenv-p MENU_3_COMMAND "boot-elf-noints-FATF cf0: vmlinux39"
How do I set setenv -p bootargs "root = /dev/sdb2" for menu 2, and
setenv -p bootargs "root = /dev/sdc1" for menu 3
So it is part of the menu item
Thanks in advance

Hi Musa

Sure :)

To be honest I had hoped to have the instructions and kernel image with Trevor before now but I didn't have much spare time over the past week. I will be sending them to Trevor this evening so they should appear in v2.0 of the installation guide very soon :D

I decided to go with a netboot installation instead of the Alternate CD as it will give you a menu to install whatever flavour(s) of *buntu that you would like i.e. Ubuntu Unity, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu, Mythbuntu or variations of them. Endless fun! ;)

Try the following settings & let us know if it works, I might need to do the same.

setenv -p MENU_2_COMMAND 'setenv bootargs "root=dev/sdb2" ; boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux39'
setenv -p MENU_3_COMMAND 'setenv bootargs "root=dev/sdc1" ; boot -elf -noints -fatfs cf0:vmlinux39'
