Default Has Anyone Tried Elive 2.0 Topaz on their 1012? - 06-23-2010, 07:17 PM

Just wondering whether anyone has given Elive a shot on their 1012? I'm trying to work through the install but having a graphical error I'm trying to resolve. once I get it done, if it works it ought to be a beautiful distro to have on a machine with light resources. Here is a video of what to expect.

Cool stuff:


I'd love to hear feedback from anyone who has tried it and what their experiences where (especially if there are any Issues worth knowing before hand).

I tried the live CD on a very old PIII, it seemed adequately fast. I didn't install it because of the €20 fee they asked - and the process was fiddly and I just got bored with it. If I could have been sure my €20 would be well spent I might have gone ahead.

Sadly elive just doesn't work on the 1012. it won't recognize the screen. after some back and forth with the developer, his answer was to wait for elive's next release. To bad as this would be the perfect distro for the 1012.
