Notes: self signed key is the requirement for the “Secure Boot” part

7212018-09-102018-11-23Bug ReportOld, unsupported graphicsNewStefano Lugli
3.x (beta's)1 Task Description

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

4.0 Task Description

In my old nettop ‘Acer aspire one’, the inserted SD memory card of my photo camera doesn’t shows in emodule-places unless “only ermovable devices” option is unset

Seems like we need to specify these values in cases that it is one of these cards, but in any case is needed to debug the output to see what it looks like

6912018-06-012018-11-23Bug ReportBooted from usb tographical problems - after install I ...UnconfirmedMichael Leib
Task Description

Dear Team,

great work, thank you.
But unfortunately I cannot boot after installation.
Or to be more specific... I can boot and all ttys take my requests...except of course tty7.
Or the main one booting... That one is black/blank...but i can kind of use my mouse as a curser.
This is exactly the same behavior I have when booting the live-stick with the default values.
But it works with the option “graphical problems”.
So imho I need the same boot option offered on the live-stick as “graphical problems”
for my main grub.
What parameters do I need to put in there... Or how can I fix this?
I will not use it as a live-system cause its just too damn inconvenient.
So please tell me how to get enlightenment to boot?
Otherwise I’ll have to back to ubuntu:(

Thank you and have a great day :-)

Task Description

I cannot boot into the system. I am having problems moving forth after entering my passcode. One thing that happens is that it goes into “cryptsetup:sda5_crypt set up successfully”. It then processes and will not further.

Another is that if I hit F6 on initial boot, it will go into the process menu. Messages I saw on the thread were:

“No arrays found in config file or automatically.

Failure:failed to assemble all arrays.

Volume group “elive_vg” not found

Unable to find LVM volume elive_vg/root_lv


fsck died with exit status 4

6862018-05-062018-05-06Bug ReportCan't change theme w/o crashing desktop unless switchin...UnconfirmedLawrence De Coste
Task Description

I even downloaded and installed the latest Beta 2.9.92 and the same thing? happened to me (Some of these are double clicks all left after the first one):
Right click on desktop→ Click on Settings tab at bottom right→Click on the Look button at top→Click on theme→Click on Basic theme[it has a checkmark next to it]→Click on Elive Light or Lucas since Dark is already chosen→Click Apply button

BOOM the bottom 20% of the dialog screen goes black and the mouse while movable can do nothing.
In less than a minute screen flashes and the “voice” says that “Elive desktop has initiated recovery”

BUT nothing has changed it’s still the Dark theme.

SOLUTION: Before clicking the theme you want to change to: Click on the Basic button in the bottom right→ Choose your theme to change to→Click the apply button.
The screen flashes again but this time the theme you chose is now the theme.

6882018-05-202018-11-23Bug ReportUtilidad de discos no abre el disco montadoUnconfirmedChrist
3.x (beta's) Task Description

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 !!!!!!!
