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.

Task Description

Icedove and Thunderbird are both installed by default on Elive 0.5.3. Thunderbird should be removed in favour of Icedove as this is the version that Debian is using. On a related note, maybe the Icedove icon should be replaced with one of the icons from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IceDoveIcon or one from gnome-look.org because I’m not sure if you can ship that icon without Thunderbird.

APM is not being loaded during bootup. Even if acpi is disabled and apm is modprobe’d after boot, upon shutdown, the screen of the laptop will only blur and the laptop will not turn off. If you are in live mode, the cd will eject, but the laptop will not turn off. One note to keep in mind is that you cannot modprobe apm in version 0.5.1 as the OS complains about missing libraries.

 40 2006-10-192007-02-12Feature Request real-time, low latency kernel support ClosedDan MacDonald
100%
Task Description

I was very happy to see both qjackctl and zynaddsubfx as part of the default elive packages so I presumed it was also going to come with a real-time kernel as I heard that, as of 2.6.18, this has entered the mainline kernel code. Sadly this doesn’t seem to be the case.

This is the biggest missing feature in elive for me, and other wannabe Linux musicians too I’d think. If real-time support can’t be enabled it the primary elive kernel for whatever reason then it would be great if it came with a second, rt-enabled one too.

 36 2006-10-152008-09-11Bug Report Booting from Firewire DVD-Recorder not possible. ClosedTalyz Prower
100%
Task Description

This bug, which I earlier posted for “Revolution”, occurs in 0.5 dev as well.


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.

Mouse speed REALLY slow for dell inspiron 510m when x is started..

To fix it, I needed to add:

(this allows one to set the synaptic properties in real time in X)

Also, these needed to be set:

      Option      "LeftEdge"         "75"
      Option      "RightEdge"        "790"
      Option      "TopEdge"          "58"

      Option      "PalmMinZ"       "200"
      Option      "CoastingSpeed"  "1"

I think that not having the”SHMConfig” is a bug in eLive, and possible having incorrect synaptics settings could be a bug in the synaptic driver.

But it could be possible to probe for specific laptop type, and set up decent parameters based on that.

sorry for an annoying bug! And close it if it’s too hardware specific..

This is a request to add gPodder to the Elive repositories. There’s already a Debian package at their website but it’s always nicer to pull in .deb goodness with apt!

http://perli.net/projekte/gpodder/index.html

gPodder media aggregator

gPodder is a Podcast receiver/catcher written in Python, using GTK. It manages podcast feeds for you and automatically downloads all podcasts from as many feeds as you like.
gPodder is released under the GNU GPL.
gPodder can copy podcasts to your iPod automatically, so you can take your podcasts anywhere you like.
gPodder is lightweight - it does not need much power and integrates nicely into your (GTK-based) desktop.

Task Description

When I plug in my IPod it causes two instances of Thunar to open. This is a rather trivial, but annoying bug, as I immediately have to close one instance of Thunar and click cancel when it asks me to if I wish to unmount the device.
I think it would be better if Thunar didn’t open when I insert my IPod. Instead GTKPod could handle IPods and other mp3 players by default instead of Thunar as most people won’t use Thunar for IPod management (as it can’t sync, read, etc.) only GTKPod.
