Just twittered your post. Really enjoyed it thank you….

By: damian Tue, 06 Apr 2010 04:12:24 +0000 Is there any possibility of providing a changelog with each release (26.1,26.5)

By: damian Mon, 29 Mar 2010 02:03:20 +0000 nice work but already installed but I have a few problems:
1 Dsl in networkmanager is not working in default, i had to download ppp,nscd,and rp-pppoe from another computer to make ir work(don’t really know which one did the trick)
2 As said above autologin doesn’t work will it when updated in 11.2?
3 resolution is not saved on logout, and i want a different one from default (fixed it installing sax and making an xorg.conf)
4 keyboard layout is not easily changeable(had to change it from hal policy files)
5 lxmusic is not working not even for the example file (I can’t get the error right now but if you need it i’ll get it later)
I also have 1 suggestion I think chromium should be used instead of firefox, as it is much lighter

Not have autologin is a choice due to a bug fixed on 11.3 and just backported to 11.2 (not yet published on repo), as soon it will be fixed we’ll have autologin enabled, don’t worry.

just for reference, here is the bug:

the username and passwords are wrote on the page i linked for the download, so if you read, you’ll probably not complain. From here i can infact read:

# Built on openSUSE 11.2 with latest LXDE.
# Username root with NO password
# Username linux with NO password


the iso can be easly improved, just waiting for suggestions

This is what i need to know, i can fix several things, for example, i didn’t realized i missed ipw firmware… that can be the reason, i’ll fix it.

In comparison to other distros with LXDE I got to say it uses a bit more RAM but has latest pcmanfm and trashbin!
I would swith from Mint Fluxbox if I had wireless support.

By: BigBen Tue, 16 Mar 2010 22:05:25 +0000 @LLR Hey, relax! It can be frustrating, I know. Just relax and try the most obvious, easy choices.

I _did_ have a lot of fun reading your comment – then downloading openSuSE LXDE and trying the obvious logins/passwords…..
Took about 40 seconds to login as ‘linux’ – there is NO password,
ditto ‘root’ – no password.

OK, I’m a smartass!

Thanks for the LXDE distro guys – it looks good, works well live on our ancient Compaq laptop (Celeron 1.6) and the RAM usage is
pretty good – 150MB after boot (ignoring buffers and cache). Handy when we only have 768MB shared with the gruesome graphics.

Wish I could get the hang of using YAST properly.
Clearly sophisticated and powerful, but we always end up arguing with one another.

Best regards, Ben

By: LLR Mon, 15 Mar 2010 17:04:12 +0000 You may have a lot of fun knowing that few people will ever pass the login sreen. WHY is a login for a live CD? Just to comply with the openSUSE priciple of making everthing as complicated as possible?! Then enjoy it! I don’t.
