Module search improved

I wasn't quite happy with the search button at modules page, so I rewrote it to be somehow better. You can now choose from a dropdown menu which category are you willing to search through, furthermore you can also choose to search in all modules.

I use Slax a lot as a live system. But I am unable to use it on my development board with LVDS video output only, becouse after the udev autodetection Slax turns monitor off. This happens with or without xmode.

Can you tell me, which kernel option should help?

@Jakub try booting with the nomodeset option at boot. That should disable the KMS.

How can I calibrate touch screen?
I have eGalax Touch screen connect via usb.
It works,  but when I move  cursor horizontally it  moves vertically.

Love Slax, I do have a question..
When will an installer to hard drive be available ?
Another slackware similar to what you have going, Does have an Installer,
Would it be possible to Join Forces & share info so that Both the OS, Can Benefit..
The other os is Beakos, Just a Thought..
Thanks for all Your Hard Work !!!!!

Steam Module

@Kasprr, until the kernel is recompiled with CONFIG_BLK_DEV_FD=m, the lilo portion of the installer will have an issue. After that is fixed (hopefully next release), I have the old kmdr gui installer or my modified command line installer that can be used to install SLAX as a full linux to the hard drive.

Thank You So Much, I will be watching...
and By the Way, they " Beakos" , use swaret for their software manager..
Yours Will Blow theirs Away !!

Take Care Kasprr

@Kasprr, no it won't :P What I have is the old kmdr gui from the old slax which I made some modifications too. The command line script I made is from extracting and modifying stuff from the original kmdr gui script. Not to mention swaret is one of the better package manages for Slackware with good package dependency resolution.

Sorry for the wrong place for request (I hope requests section will be done soon).
Can you please make a download by torrent? Download speed from your site is often too small :(

In my opinion Slax is nicer than other LiveCDs because it is small but yet has lots of functionality.

Tomas, It possible that in the Modules section has a section for new modules that will be added?
