Theres been a problem with these two base distros-spins in that printing by foomatic/gutenprint was broken. It took quite a while to hunt this down and fix it, but it is now done.

On the first post Page 1 is the new link to these "B" distros. I will keep the main eeePC version with the main Slacko5.7 updated version together.

In brief, the main culprit here was BASH, the Slackware update to 4.2.53 broke the process. Gutenprint 5.2.9 was suspected, and reloaded to no avail. BASH has been reverted to the original supplied 4.1.0(2) version, and this solves the problem. All other upgrades are installed with no apparent problems. So its the same as the previous spins, but with BASH reverted to allow printing.

I put the eeePC here with the original to simplify maintenance. The MINI, and EONS will remain separate. EONS has been fixed to allow printing, the MINI has not.

Just a word of caution and Caveat Emptor, that the reverting of BASH means that one should always use a firewall when on-line, and that when printing, disconnect fully from the internet. There is a problem with sh+ell%sho*ck.
