I went through a fresh install of .40 last night and I wanted to share some of my experiences and ask a couple questions.
First off, the install itself went very smoothly, except for the fact that I cannot use my mouse (both during install and after). My mouse worked fine in .39, so I'm assuming this problem may be connected to the switch to Xorg? If anyone has some insight, I would appreciate it.
Also, it seems that the remote functionality has changed a bit. When I press "Exit" on my Hauppauge silver remote from MythTV, it seems to "refresh" the screen (the screen blinks but it did not exit). Before this was working. It would not be a problem (because the power button on the remote works to exit mythtv), but if I open the guide, I have no way to leave the guide now. What is the proper message for exitting (like pressing escape on a keyboard) that should be in pluto_main.RemoteMapping?
On a related note concerning the remote, I had to do a "depmod -a" before modprobe recognized the LIRC modules. I'm not sure if other people had a problem with modprobe failing to find something, but maybe this was an oversight for the install CD.
Finally, how is the "Computing" screen supposed to work now? I tried to add a program (by adding a category and then adding a template under that category) but it does not show up on the "Computing" screen. I tried a quick reload of the router and a full reboot, but still nothing. The page in Pluto Admin for computing applications is different in .40, so perhaps I am incorrect in assuming that it should appear after I add it there?
Those are the only snags I have hit so far. The release seems to be pretty good. Thanks for the hard work!
