oh my buddha!
this was an embarrassing moment ..
didn't know that Intripid was about 8.10

well then maybe i'll just wait
or maybe will make from the source
to tell the truth
made one on slackintosh
but couldn't understand how to prepare a config file for key-bindings
so wanted to know what the standard one was like

was intended to use thangs only from the package
but will stay that way when am booting from usb-flash
when booting from hdd
okay ... will try almost anythang
... mmm? but if it comes into backports .. customizing too much will
cause trouble?
