100%
3.0 Task Description

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. Also: a reboot should perfectly return to the normal behaviour
  5. 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”
  6. 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)
  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)

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

3.x (beta's)1 Task Description

Hola! Tengo tres problemas:


1- Al cerrar sesión el sistema se bloquea.

2- Cuando pongo el equipo en suspensión o le doy a hibernar, me ocurre que al volver al escritorio Internet no funciona y si reinicio todo vuelve a la normalidad, esto ya me pasaba con el sistema estable.

3- Cuando intento actualizar no me deja y todo es darle al botón pero ahí se queda sin poder actualizar.


P. D. - Por lo demás todo perfecto.

Un saludo!

4.02 Task Description

Eltrans was the easiest way to get big parts of the os translated for free. It needs to go live again, so what is the problem that prevents it from working? Is there any way we could write a new version of it so you do not need to waste your time? In that case, what are your requiremetns and what kind of interface should we give it so that it can just be put in place of the older one?

 34 2006-10-132006-11-06Bug Report Booting from Firewire DVD-Recorder not possible. ClosedTalyzP
100%
Task Description

The live cd does not boot from a firewire dvd-recorder; at least not the one which came with my Acer Travelmate 3012wtmi.

Both Debian and Ubuntu boot with no problem at all (Debian used to have the same problem before, though) and in Gentoo, it works when the “doscsi” kernel argument is passed. I have not successfully booted Elive with this drive, however.

I don not think this will be a problem very hard to fix; it just needs to be detected ;).

I will try the latest Elive as well (downloading now) and report, but I don not expect it to work, since this bug is not mentioned on the “Fixed Bugs” list.

100%
Task Description

This is by far my favourite Linux distro Thanks.

The Bug
System hangs(with mouse pointer disappearing) on my IBM Thinkpad T22 (P3, 512mb ram) every time I use the internet. Problem occurs in both e16 and e17(more frequently here) versions of elive 0.4, 0.5 all and so far on Revolution livecd.

I don’t know if its elive, firefox or just a general problem with Debian and the Thinkpad.

100%
Task Description

Hi

I have elive Rev rl2 on my IBM thinkpad and for some reason when I try to boot I end up with a black screen or a blackscreen with a non-flashing comand promt just as the entrance logon screen is about to load as though the system has crashed at this point. It didn’t happen when I first installed elive but then when I tried to boot a second time after installation it happened. I thought maybe it was something I did and tried to reinstall but this time it took about 10 restarts before even the eliveCD would boot entrance properly in live mode. Anyway I reinstalled it seemed to work for a while and then again just now, entrance would not boot properly again even in recovery mode. I finally got it up again after repeatedly turning the laptop off and on again.

When entrance loads elive 0.6+ rl2 works perfectly, (such a perfect lil distro my battery even lasts 3-4hr twice that that with any other OS) it just this issue with entrance not being booted properly that’s the problem.

Is there something I have to change in the monitor setup, i.e. frequency? how do I do this in recovery mode comand line?

Thank

BTW. I have only ELive on my System and there is no Windows on it
