Elive 1.2.3 beta released
December 13, 2007
The Elive Team is proud to announce the release of beta version 1.2.3
This version includes some misc features like:
- This version of Elive includes even more stability and usability of the livecd mode, especially when you install applications or do a lot of stuff on it we have also switched to a newer 126.96.36.199 kernel while we wait the final release of 2.6.24 that Elive is going to use.
- The installer includes many useful and innovative new features that permit you to convert any Linux OS to a Elive system. If you have another linux installation on the partition where you want to install Elive, Elive automates the process by saving all your users, files, passwords, and minor system configurations. Note that this feature at the moment only works on systems that use a separate /home partition.
We appreciate your feedbacks about the overall speed/lightness of the system compared to last stable version of Elive. You can say something in our chat channel directly from the running system. If you detect any lagging in the system please consider different setups like disabling composite (which you can select on the startup of the graphical system) in order to report improvements. We would also appreciate feedbacks about composite enabled or disabled in old computers, suggestions for better performances, and memory usage compared to Topaz.
Note that these development releases don’t include the Elive Installer yet because it’s not ready, we also didn’t include the proprietary drivers for now (Nvidia/fglrx) but the opensource drivers should detect your hardware and configure your system perfectly.
You can Download this version at the development section.
Please remember that this is an alpha version of Elive which is uncomplete and may have errors, if you want to see a polished result of Elive try the Stable version instead.
Give us a comment in our chat channel, you can also improve Elive by yourself in github.
Help us to make Elive even better!
