It includes an installer. It's still a little rough around the edges because it's alpha but I'm running it now and it's usable.

Can't install.... it gives me error as superuser at installer ... the error happened during installation and i did noting. What is the problem with installer?

I did a second attempt and what appeared is: "We're sorry; the installer crashed. After you close this window, we'll allow you to file a bug report using the integrated bug reporting tool. This will gather information about your system and your installation process. The details will be sent to our bug tracker and a developer will attend to the problem as soon as possible."

It is still bugged... :\

It's still in alpha, so the installer probably just isn't quite ready yet. The important thing is that you can test it, and you only need the live system to do that.

Is anyone able to download via torrents or is this a problem that only I suffer from ?

I couldn't either. I downloaded it from the server.

I've installed it from a live cd and it works well for me. No Pidgin or Icedove but I assume more refinements will come :-)

Why not trisquel version based on Devuan with linux-libre ?

HuangLao

Devuan is still alpha, also no guarantee they will be around in a few years. The Devuan dev.'s actually want Debian to merge the two groups together to offer choice of init. So long term Devuan is no guarantee. IMO.

Hmm i use it evryday in my main system on my asus with coreboot and looks very stable to me.

Sure it is stable in that sense, I meant "officially". Also, I was mistaken, it is considered Beta now: "Welcome to Devuan Jessie 1.0 Beta2".

With the way the distro scene is going, I'm suprised no one has tried to make a libre version of SolusOS.

I installed Flidas. Here's an early screenshot after I cleaned things up a bit. I had to grab only part of the screen because at this point the gimp is not installable so I couldn't reduce the image to get it under the 2 mb limit.

No, I never use the wallpaper that comes with the distro. I have my own. Here's that one:

I get all my wallpaper from google. I'll search, for example, "mountain landscapes wallpapers" and go to the images. They'll be lots of mountain wallpaper listed to browse through. Just search for the type of wallpaper you want. Scifi, woodland, astronomical, whatever.

So far the only problem I've had has been with the unavailability of some of the dependencies for the gimp, so that it can't be installed. But I realize that's because it's still in alpha. Mate is running great, and looks great. It looks much better than gnome fallback. I'll probably keep it right through to the official release.

Typing from Trisquel 8 now. It is running really well. The only thing I have noticed is that `libsdl1.2-dev` is missing from the repo so I cannot compile the latest `mednafen` from source.

Hello,

I was hoping to try Trisquel 8 as a live USB (actually a live microSD), but my USB wifi adapter isn't working with it.

Dmesg says:

ath9k_htc: failed to get firmware htc_9271.fw

I bought this particular wifi adapter because I read that it is free-software-friendly. It works with Trisquel 7.

How can I get this firmware loaded onto the microSD card?

Thanks for your help.

I've three problems, (with trisquel_8.0_i686.iso):
1) Can't do text install, (he can't find casper)
2) In graphical install, the installer crash during installation of language package, (italian in my case). Same problem of user "Apprendiz_de_linux", I think, (Gnu/Linux however)
3) sorry for my english eheh

Any solutions? I tried three times...

Why not install in English and once installed try to install Italian language from settings?

Good idea! I'll try, thank you for your help!
P.S. = often I try things much complicated and I get lost in simple things ahhahaha

EDIT = nothing... I tried english install with italian keymap and it doesn't work. I think I'll wait the next iso or try spanish, (maybe you tried with amd64, I use i686).

Is this closer to final release or is an alpha-beta version?

Very alpha. There are quite a few packages missing or uninstallable at this point. I did install it and it ran.

Feel free to email me when it is beta. and this goes for anyone who wants to.

When it is beta, i will try it. until then, no way in Hell... will i do that.

Looking forward to it though, ;)

Ah okay, but it is missing things isn't it?

I still though want to wait till beta. at least, just in case. :) I wonder how many months it will be before that.

Also, is it safe to install it? or should I run it through qemu?

It should be safe to install (the worst that could happen is the installation not working), but you probably don't want to install it on a real machine right now. Better to go with a VM.

This is a pointless thing to say and I grow tired of people saying it (in general, not just about Trisquel 8). "Stable" means one of two things: either that it doesn't crash, or that it isn't going to change much. It's obvious that you mean the former. But Trisquel was never unstable in this sense, regardless of what kind of alpha state it was in. No new software is being developed by it, and the software included is all long-standing and reliable (e.g. Linux and GNU), so why would it crash? Talking about how often a GNU/Linux system crashes is therefore completely meaningless in most cases.

What actually varies is, how complete is the system? The answer for Trisquel 8 is: very incomplete. It's ready for testing (e.g. to help its development or see if it works with your hardware), but it's generally not ready for real use because packages are missing and there's no particular guarantee at this time that the system won't break because of packaging changes (although I assume it probably won't). You can still use it if you're OK with that, but that is the situation, so if you're not OK with that, you should stick with Trisquel 7 for now.

Easy, I wasn't trying to anger you.

I just was trying to figure out if it was safe to install on my machine directly. ie if it could do irreversible damage, TO my hardware* but now that you have answered me. I am satisfied.

No need to take it personally.

When it is beta i will install directly probably.

I wonder how many months that will be......

But in general, your last two sentences sums up my feelings.

But essentially your saying that it won't destroy my hardware most likely. I assume it has low chance which in

general means, I have no real worries. at least from what you say anyways that's my feeling.

That wasn't a response to you. It was a response to the remark that the Trisquel 8 alpha is "stable". It also wasn't in "anger"; I don't know why you interpreted it that way.

> if it could do irreversible damage, TO my hardware

Unless "damage" just refers to normal wear and tear from using the hardware normally, that's not possible no matter what the software does, especially not unintentionally (the only possible way I can think of is for the software to disable all cooling systems and then run infinite loops hoping to heat up the processor, but any well-designed processor that can heat itself up will shut itself off before it gets too hot).

The only risk that comes with using software that's not ready yet is data loss. At least, assuming it's on hardware that's competently designed.

I suppose it was directed at me then. I found it sounded quite angry as well. You may want to consider the way you word things in the future. As far as saying that most GNU/Linux systems are stable as in 'not crashing', I have *not* found that to be the case in my distro wandering.

I haven't found a single example of a GNU/Linux system crashing, ever, except for cases where the hardware itself was at fault (e.g. overheating which caused the CPU to shut itself down, or hardware that the kernel just doesn't support properly, such as my current laptop which freezes up if you use a version of Linux older than 3.4, I think).

Thanks for telling me that.

I apologize for my ignorance.

I know a lot less about programming than you.

Hence my suggestion that intel me in the later generations could have some miracle happen where someone reverse

engineers it to remove it completely on another thread.

I have installed parabola twice successfully, but boy was it freakin difficult. I am sure most people on this forum know more than I heh.

Sounds like you should keep it in virtual, on a flash drive, or on a machine whose hard drive contains nothing important.

Well I figured as much, I do have my important files on other storage devices, I just wondered in general, if it could be a hazard to my computer... ie, doing irreversible damage if I installed it directly on my computer...

thanks for the advice though. :)

Actually though, does it have non free software on still because of it being ubuntu 16.04 before hand?

just curious. or was all that crap removed already...

curious minds want to know. :)

I loaded it with qemu so far. and it is working somewhat...
