 733 2019-05-232020-01-13Bug Report Sound Card keeps dropping out on reboot Closedswarfendor437
Task Description

Elive’s automatic configurator worked fine both in live mode (DVD) and post-install (initially). Elive Stable 3.0.6, Motherboard Asus PRIME X470-PRO, Ryzen 7 1700X, 16 Gb Corsair Vengeance RAM, Sound Blaster Audigy Rx (SB1550), Zotac nvidia 1040 Graphics (2 Gb). At first I thought it was because I changed from default Xsystem to Enlightenment. Booted tonight and no sound, only the nvidia graphics HDMI connection showing. When the system boots I see a terminal wording about “perfectr” unknown hardware which I assume is the Audigy Rx card. The only OS that appears to be stable with Sound Card is Feren OS, Makulu Lindoz 15 and Sparky Linux 5.7. Zorin 15 Beta which is based on Ubuntu 18.04 only works with ALSA - then I have to reinstall PulseAudio to listen to sound with streaming video from Web as ALSA can’t cope with it.

 734 2019-07-152019-07-15Bug Report Misspelled text in notification re SHACKING Alert Closedandy purugganan
Task Description

My laptop works regularly, however I receive a notification about excessive shaking while in use.

The message is correct but the title spells SHACKING so it does not make sense why one is correctly spelled but the other is not; there will be confusion, no doubt.

I put this on low priority because it is minor and does not prevent continuing one’s work. The notification disappears or fades based on the default duration.

 744 2020-02-232020-02-23Bug Report find command error in /usr/bin/elive-health ClosedJack Holborn
Task Description


I got this error message while using elive-health from command line :

find: paths must precede expression: `/home/jack/.local/share/Trash'
find: possible unquoted pattern after predicate `-type'?

I found out that a ‘find’ command at line 100 of this script was incorrectly formatted, it showed :

find -type f "$HOME/.local/share/Trash" -delete

where it should be :

find "$HOME/.local/share/Trash" -type f -delete

So it prevents removal of Trash content.

Patch available, just ask!

2.0 Task Description

I have three operating systems on my machine. The 1st one is Windows Vista, the 2nd one is Windows XP and the 3rd one is eLive. eLive has been installed as the last one and brought GRUB with it. It has created four GRUB entries (1: eLive GEM+, 2: Windows Vista, Windows XP, Memory RAM Diagnostic). Every entry works fine, only when I select Vista then XP comes up and when I select XP then Vista comes up. So either the descriptions or the boot devices are swapped. I am not clear about the devices. Vista has one disk, eLive and XP share the other disk. This is my menu.lst:

 675 2018-02-112018-05-06Feature Request Make install procedure more clear ClosedYop 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.
