I’m using my WIFI connection without problem. I just updated with “apt-get update” and then tried to install “apt-get install gsmartcontrol”, but after key “s” as usual on any Debian based system, in console it shows “Err http://.... gsmartcontrol...i386.deb” ... “301 moved permanently”, so I can’t install the application. Is like it’s not on repositories. Any idea to solve this? I just installed Elive 3.0.3 yesterday. I’m using my WIFI connection without problem.

FS#688: Utilidad de discos no abre el disco montado http://bugs.elivecd.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=688 2018-11-23T03:20:07Z Christ Al ingresar a la utilidad de discos, se puede ver sin problema el disco duro y sus particiones. Pero a la hora de dar clic en “Montar”, se monta aparentemente en una ruta pero dicha ruta no existe. En otras palabras si monto el disco desde la utilidad de discos, el disco supuestamente se monta pero no se puede acceder a él desde la ruta que muestra en pantalla. Ahora si ingreso al administrador de archivos, ahi se puede ver las particiones del disco y se puede acceder. Pero si doy a montar en la utilidad de discos, curiosamente se desmonta en el administrador de archivos. Ahí está el error. Y este error ya lo he visto en versiones anteriores, pero en esta última sigue ese mismo problema. Y el error se presenta en cualquier maquina que se quiera probar el elivecd. Saludos y larga vida a Elivecd, el mejor sistema basado en Debian !!!!!!! Al ingresar a la utilidad de discos, se puede ver sin problema el disco duro y sus particiones.

FS#687: Main hard drive not detected http://bugs.elivecd.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=687 2018-11-23T03:19:11Z Michael Molho On a laptop Lenovo ideapad 100S, I cannot install Elive on disk because the main hard drive (SSD) is not detected. Once booted in live mode, the list of detected drives showed by the Elive installer is empty. I also started Gparted which did not see my hard drive, only the USB stick. I’m opening this bug but I will not be able to follow the resolution since I will not have access to this laptop anymore. It is just in case you can find the solution without my further help and inputs.

FS#721: Old, unsupported graphics http://bugs.elivecd.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=721 2018-11-23T02:35:13Z Stefano Lugli I’d liked to test elive’s minimum requirements putting together some of the oldest piecies of hardware i have lying aroud.I begun trying it out with a old motherboard, a sf2/661fx rev 1.1, which features sis integrated graphics/sis 964l (which is pretty common in old pentium 4 based office desktop computers), mounting a ‘01 2.44 GHz pentium 4 (https://ark.intel.com/products/27438/Intel-Pentium-4-Processor-2_40-GHz-512K-Cache-533-MHz-FSB), 512 mb 266mhz ddr ram and a classical ide hdd. It looked like a possible common set up for older computers, and i was surprised finding out that there was no way to boot in graphical mode! None of the options given, either in pae or older kernel, not even the special graphics failing mode!Then i added a vanta 16 (which i noticed in here was a often times used cheap af graphics card in older pentium 4s, as it was the msi nvidia tnt2 riva m64/m64 pro, which gave me the same results as the vanta being based on the same hw/drivers). Despite if i’m not mistaken it was supposed to support 76xx drivers (which should be avaialble in the repos), i needed to switch to the free drivers. It let me choose keyboard language and system language correctly., then when getting to the desktop it gave me a black screen :/ the mouse was visible though, so i think there must be a workaround (i will try to find it as soon as i have time)then moved to geforce 2 mx200/mx400. Supposed to work fine with either legacy drivers 76xx or 96xx, both gave me several graphical errors. nosense screen resolution (like 600×480) and i was unable to use either the dock or the applications menu. Terminal took forever to open and everything was mostly unusable. Tried again with all the boot options, looks like working fine only using the free drivers options (both with the newer and older kernel). No graphics acceleration available, even if in windows 98 graphics acceleration was available. Using the software acceleration caused a heavy load on the poor p4, which meant random freezes whenever it had to open an heavy application/installing something with apt-get (and the bottleneck wasn’t the ram or some sort of swapping, never hit 300 mbs of used ram!). Tried switching to e16, nothing changed.The machine worked perfectly (and same for all the graphics options listed here)under windows 98/xp and debian stretch with i3-wm. Only issue was the sis chipset unable to elaborated 3d graphics for a lack of compatible drivers in linux, but i’ve been running q4os (debian jessie, later stretch, + TDE at the time) without having too much troubles. DE worked perfectly, at least I’d liked to test elive’s minimum requirements putting together some of the oldest piecies of hardware i have lying aroud.

FS#705: Multiple screens betatesting http://bugs.elivecd.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=705 2018-11-23T02:16:47Z Thanatermesis The new multiple screens betatesting is ready to be used, this task will be to better track all that is needed to betatest: How to use it: Everything should be automated, so just upgrade your system with the command “apug” and restart to a new desktop configuration (from elive menus), which is important too. It should detect that you have multiple screens and ask you to configure them, or use an existing configuration, etc in contrary case you still have the configurator available (only one now, which is an elive tool) Things to betatest: This is the list: all the options and behaviours (what if select no, yes, save, not save, remove, etc), this is more or less already betatested by me try to disconnect the extra screen, reboot computer, your desktop should be equally functional (and I assume not asking/saying anything about) poweroff again the computer, connect again the extra screen, it should remember that configuration for your second screen and going back to these settings (without asking anything, i assume) there’s some games that changes your screen resolution (in order to play in fullscreen), if the game exits with an error your desktop is messed up (desktop running in a strange resolution), the normal behaviour is to return to the correct resolution when the game exits correctly, but i dont know if this happens or even if goes to the correct multiscreen mode. Also: a reboot should perfectly return to the normal behaviour maybe already said before, but switching between “using and not using” the external screen should be not a painful experience (and/or with reboots), it should be “work on the fly” ecomorph (special effects) should work correctly, except for the “exposé effect” which doesn’t seems to like it so much (confused numbers of desktops, etc, not sure if this one works better after the full implementation) detail: technically speaking, there’s two launching of the “load screen settings”, one happens before the desktop is loaded and the other when the desktop has started to load... in other words: if there’s a widget/question that asks for anything it should always happen when you already have access to the window controls (including window borders for example) since i found a strange behavior with the “automated fonts sizing calculation” feature, i include this betatest point: test if the font sizes are not reconfigured “smaller than normal” we have hotkeys to switch between virtual desktops, do we have a setup for between screens? i just tried to configure a new keyboard hotkey (ctrl + alt + shift + arrows) for switch to another screen 0/1 but doesn’t looks like to work on virtualbox... will need to do test in a real machine (and implement the hotkey in the default configuration) Notes: if any of these betatests are not working as expected, please include the details of the “steps” about how to reproduce it, and the exact (first words) of the “conflicting” message found The new multiple screens betatesting is ready to be used, this task will be to better track all that is needed to betatest:

How to use it: Everything should be automated, so just upgrade your system with the command “apug” and restart to a new desktop configuration (from elive menus), which is important too. It should detect that you have multiple screens and ask you to configure them, or use an existing configuration, etc in contrary case you still have the configurator available (only one now, which is an elive tool)

Things to betatest: This is the list:

  1. all the options and behaviours (what if select no, yes, save, not save, remove, etc), this is more or less already betatested by me
  2. try to disconnect the extra screen, reboot computer, your desktop should be equally functional (and I assume not asking/saying anything about)
  3. poweroff again the computer, connect again the extra screen, it should remember that configuration for your second screen and going back to these settings (without asking anything, i assume)
  4. there’s some games that changes your screen resolution (in order to play in fullscreen), if the game exits with an error your desktop is messed up (desktop running in a strange resolution), the normal behaviour is to return to the correct resolution when the game exits correctly, but i dont know if this happens or even if goes to the correct multiscreen mode.

  7. detail: technically speaking, there’s two launching of the “load screen settings”, one happens before the desktop is loaded and the other when the desktop has started to load... in other words: if there’s a widget/question that asks for anything it should always happen when you already have access to the window controls (including window borders for example)
  8. since i found a strange behavior with the “automated fonts sizing calculation” feature, i include this betatest point: test if the font sizes are not reconfigured “smaller than normal”
  9. we have hotkeys to switch between virtual desktops, do we have a setup for between screens? i just tried to configure a new keyboard hotkey (ctrl + alt + shift + arrows) for switch to another screen 0/1 but doesn’t looks like to work on virtualbox... will need to do test in a real machine (and implement the hotkey in the default configuration)
