100%
Task Description

Hello,
a problem for elive 1.9.56 and earlier versions up from about 1.9.30: (where older versions did not have this problem, but i don’t know exactly)

description:
the startup elive sound is much too loud (almost breaking the speakers)

on Lenovo R61i (and probably other laptops of this brand)
on DELL Latitude C540 (and also other laptops of this brand)

i found a workaround:
after selection of language you add nosound to the command line options
then the sound will be just audible but not annoy your neighbourhood.

on other computers like Apple MacMini or Samsung the sound level is ok.

on Apple iMac elive does not sound at all.

 610 2014-02-262017-08-25Feature Request Replace chromium with iceweasel Closeda blez
100%
Task Description

Hi,
I am using elive_2.1.58_alpha_hybrid from live CD (not installed)

I want to kick the pre-installed chromium browser as it not usable with this lot of annoying ads.
So I remove it using synaptics, but df or free displays even more RAM in use, so I do not know whether it is really gone.

Then I can install iceweasel (or iceape) using synaptics and they are working fine also with noscript.

Would it be possible to pre-install iceweasel or iceape instead of chromium?

 218 2008-08-132008-09-11Bug Report eeepc problems in 1.8.2 ClosedAgostino
100%
Task Description

There are a few problems which prevent 1.8.2 to work flawlessly in eeepc:

Fn-f2 doesn’t work at all, i tested puppylinux and there is working perfectly, they found there is a particular way of modprobbing and rmmodding modules in order for it to work, they have made available a pet package, which is not else than a compressed tar.gz with all the stuff needed, might be nice to give a look to it: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1394464815&t=31947

on the same, the wireless driver is extremely buggy, it shows every wireless hotspot as protected (even if they are open) and with minimal signal, and shows many troubles in connecting...again in puppylinux it worked perfectly, showing correct power, they use a patched madwifi driver, like eeedebian does, http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1394464815&t=31947

fn-volume keys have no effect, probably the script is not implemented yet, the scripts for puppy do it fine, you could shortcut by giving a look at their work.

I would suggest to run locale purge after installing on eeepc in order to save space, i recovered 200mb with it.

At the moment is almost not usable because the buggy wireless driver, is too hard to connect to hotspots.

Task Description

Hello i tested the 1.8.5 installed on my eeepc and found a bunch of bugs:

  • exalt doesn’t recognizes interfaces, so is not possible to connect to anything
  • during bootup i had a loop where messages ran very fast on the screen, to fix i had to hard reboot, didn’t happen again yet...this was happening also in 1.8.4
  • thunar doesn’t mount devices, no usb pen, nor the usb SD card reader of the eeepc, they are not even seen by thunar
  • trying to disable then re-enable exalt results in E17 segfault
  • the cpufreq module is unable to change the governor

Beside that the system seems stable, however i can’t test it since no connection to internet.
