Task Description

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.

Task Description

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.

azerty Belgian period keyboard

settings:
Language setting: English
keyboard setting: Belgium

On this type of keyboard if you need numbers you have to use shift. This works but when using caps lock it doensn’t tis only effect the numbers and special chars. not for the normal letters there it works fine as it should.

This is tested on 2 laptops and both have the same problem so it isn’t a hardware problem.

6752018-02-112018-02-13Feature RequestMake install procedure more clearUnconfirmedYop Solo

Task Description

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.

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”.
;)

Latest version (2.8.6 Beta) . Be good to have possibility to boot into UEFI (not only standard BIOS).
A self signed key is fine as 90% of machines will allow this.
