that fixed it thanks. now I have a dumb question. I have the regular OpenBox installed as well, along with the E-17 and Zen-mini flavors. I haven't looked yet, but why would Openbox mini either be the only one with the issue or the only one where it was enabled?
If I told you that it might be because it's still in a testing stage, would that satisfy you ? Else I renamed it to Openbox Base, because "Mini" does not suit a version that is not providing non free drivers and firmwares, whereas all the other PCLinuxOS Mini versions do. This is an "almost core" : more easy to start from than etjr's cli.iso, as you can see from the 47 pages started beginning September, and from the birthday of the first version announced at mypclinuxos.com/forum:pclinuxos-openbox-mini 2010-7_04 : on top of cli.iso
That was in July, and a few others had been pulled out of the cli.iso before I found out what was missing to be able to finish the reboot after install with all that is expected... choice for keyboard, invite to create the root password and new user's account...
So now it's a core, with minimum packages required so that it looks like a good start. I noticed that for now it's only 91 MB bigger than the original cli.iso where it has been pulled from.
Next version : will have a new PCManFM, which is in testing for now, new libfm and libfm-gtk, new Obconf and resolvconf will be deactivated.
Thank you very much for your feedback on this issue. I still don't know if it can still be needed for some people with the kernels we have so I will leave it in the system.
