FS#668: Office for old computers, not so bloated than LibreOffice http://bugs.elivecd.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=668 2018-05-06T23:09:46Z Norman Elive works well at older computers like Amilo M 7400, 512 MB RAM and about 1.2 GHz. But Office solutions like LibreOffice too much bloated for old computers. Because looking for Beginners using Elive (I think it’s perfect, because intuitive using is nearly perfect), giving a choose by using Elive, if old hardware is detected.Beginners don’t know, that Abiword and gnumeric for example are good enough for the most office works. And there are much less performance needing office solutions, i don’t know. In germany we would say, thats the point of the letter “i”.;) Elive works well at older computers like Amilo M 7400, 512 MB RAM and about 1.2 GHz.

FS#673: Persistance error http://bugs.elivecd.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=673 2018-05-06T23:08:53Z Walter Fernandez Using beta 2.9.2 trying to enable persistence, gives me error “You don’t have enough space available.” I re-sized the partition from winbugs ( UsbWriter-1.3 installs it to the pendrive formatting only the image size needed), created partitions next to the Live_OS one, etc and always gave me that error. But persistence works anyway.

FS#675: Make install procedure more clear http://bugs.elivecd.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=675 2018-05-06T23:03:48Z Yop Solo I use the USB image on a dual boot laptop. Maybe I’m wrong but I think the install software is a shell script using a lot of dialog boxes.It’s powerful, cute and original at this time where all others use the same software installer. Unfortunately it’s weak in ergonomy. First blocking is about (non-)payment procedure. Use accounts, serial numbers, etc. Whatever but it’s not clear about those who wants to pay, those who already paid and those who won’t pay. Closing the web browser frame is not obvious. Second is when I want to keep some partitions. Help looks like a choice. choice is always automatic when I want to keep control, etc. writing on my partitions is always frightening and the script is not very reassuring. Last is hardware support and software options : no way to go back. Just my $0.02, have a nice day. I use the USB image on a dual boot laptop.

FS#677: User creation after reinstall http://bugs.elivecd.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=677 2018-05-06T22:58:55Z Yop Solo I use a partition for / and another for /home.The installer recognized / as a previous Elive installation and proceeds.It doesn’t ask for /home partition nor for user creation. After editing /etc/passwd I see an eliveuser has been created but if I set that a password is required at reboot, I’m screwed because it doesn’t ask to set it.

Can it be resized to hold the sub menu items neatly rather than the scroll bars at the side. (or a sizable window? it does not look as polished currently as the rest of the release.

I cannot suggest the disto to people , the first thing they do is go to the forum, and its mostly spam, not a lot of real content there. the main page is great, but the forums are a big let down to people I think. you need a nice new forum with the web page theme :~) Getting close to release, can you take down the current forums?
