 456 2009-08-172010-01-20Bug Report Shared WEP keys non-functional Closedlegion
100%
Task Description

This might be considered both a bug and a feature request, depending on your point of wiev.

It is (as of verision 1.9.37, as far as I know also in 1.9.39) impossible to connect to wireless networks protected by WEP encryption using a shared key (as opposed to having an open system).

In the standard connection/network manager application this seems to be due to the fact that there is no oprion to actually set the encryption of a WEP-protected network to “shared” as you don’t get any options besides condifuring the key used (i.e. you can’t select the key index, key number etc).

However, even after switching network management software to something more complete/full-featured (such as Wicd, which I tested) and configuring the connection properly the problem persist, in that it refuses to connect.

 454 2009-08-062009-12-30Feature Request Better graphical performance for elive-compiz in Intel  ...Closedthanatermesis
100%
Task Description

It is needed to set some extra configurations for when there’s Intel cards in Elive Compiz:

  • change mplayer conf to use X11 (or GL is better option?), and set the zoom ON
  • Update: set the X11 or GL as a choice for the user (in case of any elive-compiz, not only intel), explaining how to configure it later and what’s the difference between them
  • xine: use xshm or gl output (ask to the user too, or better, include the answer of the previous question for selection there too)
  • gstreamer-properties for configure gstreamer to use X11 instead of XV
  • xorg: set XAA instead of EXA (see deliver configuration for eeepc)
  • export INTEL_BATCH=1 in /etc/profile
 453 2009-08-052010-01-20Feature Request Add possibility of adding more users ClosedJuzz
100%
Task Description

When asking to create a user - it might be a good idea to ask if the installer should create more users.

This could be useful if it was to be installed on a family computer.

(Something along the lines of the request to add more partitions when partitioning the hard disk)

 452 2009-08-052009-08-25Bug Report Fine tune freezes (sometimes produces a kernel oops) ClosedJuzz
100%
Task Description

When installing on a HP Pavilion dv6000, sl-modem-daemon (and sl-modem-modules-KERNEL) gets installed, and they mess up the fine tune process.

Sometimes it just freezes and goes no further but sometimes it produces a kernel oops.

I’ve removed the sl-modem-daemon and modules since I have no use for it (and I cannot turn off the modem in the bios of the laptop).
And now the fine tune just completed.

(a newcomer might not realize what to do to make it work and then give up on the installation)

 451 2009-08-052010-03-02Bug Report Grub does not boot when /boot partition is JFS ClosedJuzz
100%
2.0 Task Description

If you partition up your disk and want /boot to be JFS then Grub just shows the “Grub is now loading” with the “Stage 1.5” at the top.

I’ve tried to load up the livecd and mount and chroot into the installed environment to run grub manually, but that does not work either.

This is both for elive 1.9.36-compiz and the .37 non-compiz.

100%
Task Description

Hi!

I noticed yesterday when i tried after 2 hours of working on Elive (last Dev. Version elive_1.9.37_unstable) to restart my X-server, that the x-server restarts, but it keeps can’t loging in in my system again, and show me just the Black Screen. I have Nvidia Graphic Card, i user the Nvidia Driver shipped with Elive, but not the last one ( the one with Graphic Card up to 512M RAM) my Graphic Card is Nvidia FX 5200 AGP, and the resolution of my Monitor is 1920×1080 Full HD , Viewsonic Flat screen. I had at last to restart my system by pressing at one Ctrl-alt- del combination to restart the estem, because the system did not want to give me anyone of the other console modes to login and do anything. By the way, i added my xorg.conf to add my resolution manually. thats all what i did. Please repare this Problem.

 441 2009-07-182010-01-20Bug Report window disappears when using sticky mode and elive-comp ...Closedshunt
100%
Task Description

I like using “Sticky mode” (i.e. traditional X sticky so it sticks on all desktops)because I keep one terminal window with a screen session on all desktops.

When setting “Sticky mode” for a window, window often spontaneously disappears or moves somewhere else. Temporary solution is to left-click on desktop and click “Lost Windows” and find it there. The window will then usually be found on desktop 0:1.

I am using dual-monitor configuration with both monitors as one desktop with elive-compiz. I do not have this problem on single-screen elive-compiz on a laptop, so this is probably some kind of issue with X and twinview/xinerama.

Thanks for the most awesome distro ever.

2.0 Task Description

It would be nice to have a multimedia manager on the style of itunes added to elive repositories:
Its a while i’ve been using Songbird and it really works amazingly, much better than rhythmbox
At the moment is available as a tar.gz, but is a precompiled executable, just depack in /usr/local/bin/ and you are good to go, but it would be nice to have it added as a .deb to elive repositories.

 436 2009-07-112010-03-02Bug Report net-connector: default profile needs to be fixed Closedthanatermesis
100%
2.0 Task Description

Somebody has reported me that recently, no one of its computers will connect to internet automatically (wired), after to talk a bit with him i have discover that he has just set a own profile name to their connections (instead to keep the default name)

Cause: He has changed the default profile to other name

This could be a very common problem, the users don’t know that they needs to use the name default in order to have it to autoconnect or it will not work.

Fix: What I think that could be a good fix is to don’t permit the user to change the name default on the profile, until there’s actually a profile called default existing and that has the autoconnect set to Yes. Any better idea ?

 433 2009-07-102010-03-02Bug Report Grub wrong hard disk id Closedthanatermesis
100%
2.0 Task Description

Installing in /dev/hdb1 for example, grub generates a configuration using (hd0,0), where it should be (hd1,0)

The questions is...

  • with which disk you boot the computer ? hda or hdb ?
  • where you have selected to install grub ? (if the installer has asked you this)

I think that the selector of grub needs to be rewrited... in case that is not hda or sda, ask allways to the user about which/where to install grub, a better look needs to be made on this side

please comment this ticket, i need your info for fix it :P
