Checkup MiNT installation

March 29, 2009 07:22AM
Hello all,

I (almost) recently (~1 year) moved from MagiC! to MiNT. Mostly for Hardware reasons. Say I first didn't wish to leave MagiC! for anything else, because of habits and knowledge of most of its behaviour.
Anyway, I've been running MiNT for almost one year now, and I'm discovering things I missed when installing.
So I'm going to list them here, hoping some help.
If some of my problems have been discussed before, and you remember it, please be kind and write the place and the approximative date (ie : "discussed on mid 2008 in c.s.atari"winking smiley, as I may not have used the correct words when googling. Thanks in advance.
Once again, don't forget I'm neither familiar with MiNT, nor with Linux/Unix.
1- I remember I set the timezone in some file long ago, then I type something containing zic at the shell prompt. I expected MiNT to automatically switch to/from summer time, but it doesn't. Did I forget to do something ?
2- Any people using Eiffel who could correctly configure their keyboard ? I couldn't manage to get the 1st keyboard row to display anything together with Alt key.
3- I thought that MiNT-Net would allow me to get rid of all other stuff. Unfortunately, I still have to use GlueStik with MyMail, HighWire, Litchi clients. Is there anything I forgot to do ?

Thanks in advance,
