Last devel Elive. Impressions and problems
October 28, 2008 06:57PM
Hi! Thanks for this nice distro.

I have just installed last Elive development version.

I like the small fonts (which were criticized in one recent reviews of Elive)!

Unfortunatley, after installation I did not have LAN network. It was there on live CD. I guess, the tuning after installation may have removed it. The Elive tool to set the network told that
it is unplugged. I never had problems with Linuxes and my Ethernet card (Broadcom, i guess). How I get my Ethernet working?

The Atheros wifi card seems to work out of the box.

Sorry,

the Ethernet card which appear to be unrecognized is actually Realtek, so it is the same problem which is discussed in a parallel thread and not solved yet.

The card worked OK with many other distros.
Now I run Linux Mint (ubuntu 8.04) on this notebook. So, the origin of the problem is a puzzle to me.
