3.0 Task Description

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”.

4.0 Task Description

Would it be possible to feature ‘Silk’ as an installable theme? There has been an update called ‘Silk and lots of colors’ but that can be added later– the original silk would be enough to attract more users and or testers. That way, Elive will not be ‘just another distro with enlightenment’, but it will be known as the ‘greatest looking distro with enlightenment, with all the bells* and whistles**!! (i am referring to ecomorph, of course).

This way we can encourage people to donate, because it is one-of-a-kind :)

(The boot-up process of ‘Silk’ has the prettier plymouth screen, IMNSHO. i would switch boot messages off, the office could be on fire, and fire trucks and ambulances all around, people would be yelling, HEY there’s a man in here staring at his computer!!)

Task Description

I have elive installed but it is flawed. I cannot use any of the current tools to connect using my DELL 6440 laptop’s wifi card.

I notice that Bodhi can use the same hardware and connect to wifi with no problem.

They implement GNOME keyring-GNOME network manager GNOME-pcs11 econnman bundle that makes this wireless solution work out-of-the-box. I would like to install them on my elive but using synaptic a lot of the installed software would have to be removed first.

I would make a donation to promote Elive 3 but I have been using a wired connection with elive because internet manager complains about something missing and it is less than ideal to use if I have to use a wired ethernet cable all the time, with my laptop.

If the prior version installed on the hard drive uses the LABEL= partition naming convention in /etc/fstab, both the / and /home partitions should be changed to UUID= or if one wants to risk it /dev/sdc or sda or whatever # blkid from the live boot calls it.

 649 2015-04-042017-08-27Bug Report Beta 2.6..0 - Destroys all other users on /home ClosedLawrence De Coste
Task Description

Today I downloaded the iso-hybrid of 2.6.0 and installed it sda5 as /.
When I chose sda8 as /home it during the install I carefully said NOT to format it.
However the install did not pick up the /home directory as planned.

First I couldn’t log in via the graphical screen. So I Ctrl-Alt-F1 into
tty1 & logged in then sudo su to edit /etc/fstab.

What had happened was there were no options chosen for sda8. So I
added “defaults” and rebooted.

Then I found that your install had deleted all the other directories on
sda8 leaving only my elive user (larryel)

Please change your install to NOT erase all the other users on the
chosen /home partition. The logic would seem to be that if a user did
NOT want to format the partition s/he would MOST certainly NOT want the
install to erase all the data on the partition either,

 645 2015-01-152017-08-27Bug Report E resolution is fucked sometimes ClosedThanatermesis
3.0 Task Description

If you run something like “berusky” (small game, which don’t works in fact), it fucks your X resolution without possibility to recover it (BIG BAD BUG)

In short it seems like to: change your E resolution, don’t restore the original one, but E saves and remebers it

We should need a way to detect that the resolution was changed by FOO, when FOO finishes and some seconds passed change the resolution to the original one if we are not on it (not sure if this is possible)

Also, is needed to save the resolution on E confs only when we select to save it, seems like there’s a trigger that saves it automatically, this is very bad :P

Notes: betatest in e19 to see if the bug is solved (and so just cherry-pick the fixes)

If you press the power button (which shows a menu option in E to close computer) and extremely-fastly you press any keyboard key, you got a segfault

This can help making it to appear: cd /tmp ; mprime-cpu -t
Also if you add a “drop caches” on that command should help too, giving you more human-time over computer-time

<PrinceAMD> an object is deleted, then a key pressed on the object causes seff
<PrinceAMD> so i think some check is needed in _e_manager_cb_key_down
<PrinceAMD> i'm guessing this is a keybinding bug, so lets say the binding trigger a call of a deleted pointer,

Task Description

Good afternoon.
I first use your OS.
And I am having difficulties with its installation.

I downloaded the beta version of the distribution.
Here at this link: http://www.elivecd.org/downloads/other/2.3.3/elive_2.3.3_beta_usb.img

I recorded image on a USB drive.
Reboot your PC.
In the beginning there was the menu.
I choose “graphics mode” - but nothing happens.
Next I choose “Install” - but also nothing happens.

Then I choose 2 item on the menu and run the Live mode.

Running passes without problems.

Next I select the icon “Install.”

It is updated, then asks to select the partition for SWAP.
But in the choice - it is empty. I can `t choose anything.

Next I miss this step and proceed to sleduyuyuschemu.

Where, I asked to select a primary partition for the system.
But in this window, as empty and again I can not do anything to choose from.

* The note says that you need to unmount the partitions which will be installing, I - it did.
But during installation, windows were still empty and again I could not select the partition to install.

Please tell me how to install your OS?

Thenuxnewbie (princeamd’s friend?) reported a crash on e17 “trying to move gadgets from shelf” he said, attached crasdump file

<Thenuxnewbie> im on wifi and i just noticed something, it would allow me to remove the gadget as long as the wifi signal strength isn’t displayed in what i presume is the system tray
<Thenuxnewbie> but as long as it’s showing signal strength bar, trying to remove the gadged crashes e17

So try to remove the wifi widget with the systray active to reproduce the bug

1 Task Description

Hibernation just blanks screen, session still life in background (sound movie still playing) system unresponsive (mouse works, no screen). Calling the hibernation script with kill apps that prevent hibernation switch does shutdowns the system but on restart a whole bunch of journal replays are done and a clean desktop is shown (all applications have been killed). Sleep mode works like a charm!
