Edit. It doesn't always work though but try it and report here what happens.


There is a description somewhere here in LQ?

As I remember one should read the email from them very
carefully and do as they say. I am very bad at such so
I failed to get exactly what was expected of me so I gave
it all up.

I didn't trust they wanted my very naive questions anyway.

But don't give up search for the descriptions on how to
do it. You have to write to a special address they gave
in that first letter one receive.

The reason they give is to sift out those who want to spam
them. Bots and such but they have done it very hard for us.

I'm sure they sat it is super easy. It is always easy
for somebody who gets how to do something.

Did you received a human or automated response about the confirmation you can post on DSL forum ?
Any specific procedure you followed to obtain it ?
And how did you contact the DSL boards guys ?

I can loggin but I'm still unable to post on DSL Boards neither contact someone via email...it looks like a sort of holly grail request ;-)

Thanks for any info

Bye,
Bruno

I was able to log in and post.

Here is how it goes:
1. You register in the forum
2. You get an automated email telling you to send them and email to let them know you are a real person. and you get an activation link too.
3. You wait.....
4. You get a reply for your email telling you that you are good to go..
5. You are good to go!

You could also find the forum rules here (http://damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/index.php/Forum_Rules)
Their contact email is { dsl.reg at gmail dot com }

Good luck

Unhappy

Thanks for your reply.

As I registered, I received an automated email to confirm my registration as you mentioned but, for myself, the procedure failed by returning an error code indicating that some required fields are missing.
Both link and return code methods present in this email failed same way.

Well, waiting more successfully moment with DSL board, I'll concentrate my forum activity dedicated to DSL to the present LinuxQuestions.org forum.

Bye,
Bruno

You are right Andale
This is obsurd

Looks like the guys at DSL have no time to moderate the forum
Personally, I can't log in anymore into the forums.

I have not been able to get it to work either. I tried emailing John also back on July 9th with no response. I may ditch DSL and move on to Puppy.

DSL is dead people

New DSL is called Tinycore

More than one side to this

I'm a total Linux noob who was advised to try DSL because my hardware's so old.

I did a frugal install of DSL on a 10 year old notebook and, as a noob, have got some stuff working.

I have the aforementioned problem with registering/posting at the DSL forum. My registration attempts errored out, but I can log in. I can't post. I've sent 2 emails to reg.dsl@gmail.com but haven't received a reply. It's only been 1 week for me.

Perusing the DSL forum, I see that there's some sort of personal split between a couple of the principal figures in DSL. I'm not going to take sides--I'm too new and haven't read much about the history of the disagreement.

I took a quick peek at the Tinycore web site and see that it's apparently Robert Shingledecker's baby.

I only want to say I'd also like to hear from John about the state of DSL, dead or merely in ICU. Everyone's voice should be heard when there are disagreements.

That is all.

(I had a question about submitting new DSL extensions, but then I read the article on DistroWatch, so I deleted the question.)

Hmm, I'll have to take a look at TinyCore for future projects...

Very useful link noprobs, thanks. Now I know I am wasting my time with DSL. Now I will look for some other distro that may make my ancient P1 notebook into a useful web browser! I guess the starting point would be to try TinyCore out.

Cheers,
Daniel.
