These seem to pass all my normal sanity checks for release images. Anyone around that wants to spot check and see if they seem reasonable please do so: https://sourceforge....ux/files/4.3.0/

If I don't see any issues and no one else reports anything these will be official ISO images in a day or two.





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

I have a Live session started right now and am planning an install on a Dimension E510 later today, time permitting. Are there any particular tests that you would like performed?

I will try to see if it can work with my Dell laptop; two distros (Tails and Sparky had kernels that worked with the pesky broadcom :angry: out-of-the-box). Crossing my fingers on this one ^_^

I'm not breaking laws and putting broadcom drivers on the disc by default. So no - your broadcom will not work OOTB.

Decent live session on Vostro 410. Copy-and-paste operation of lspci.txt file from Live Desktop folder to Lexar flash drive restarted Moksha. Otherwise good and smooth - all the applications that I attempted to launch worked as expected. Contents of lspci.txt copied into this post, if you're interested.

Not a showstopper, Jeff; it's all good--will still proceed with the download. Appreciate the heads up

Just finished installing on a Dimension E510. Looking at the minimum and recommended requirements, I started the install with 512 MB RAM, which is the recommended requirement. I was able to launch the live session, but could not get past the very first Ubiquity installation screen. I powered down the machine, added 2 compatible 1 GB sticks and restarted the install, which completed successfully and fairly smoothly. 3 GB may be considered overkill, but I think that Bodhi's minimum / recommended requirements be adjusted on http://www.bodhilinu...em-requirements. Especially since the last edited date shows August 2015.

I was able to install Google Chrome using its 64 bit deb download with no issue. When I performed a manual apt update && apt ugprade -y, Moksha restarted during package download. This did not interrupt the apt transaction, but I don't believe that anything I was doing should have prompted a shell restart. If there are any diagnostics that you'd like done to troubleshoot this restart, please let me know. Otherwise, the new installation seems to be working pretty well.

Thank you as always for your efforts. Bodhi and Moksha both show great promise.

I'm going to bump the system requirements to 256mb minimum and leave 512mb recommended. The installer fires right up with 512MB of RAM for me and runs really quickly. with 256mb it is slow, but goes eventually.

 

Might be worth running a mem check on your memory. Odds are 512mb sticks are pretty old and might just be damaged.

I'm trying to install bodhi-theme-moksha-radiance and getting an error in Terminology; this suggests two possibilities to me a). that the package is not yet available for 4.3 but will be at some point in the future or B). that the package has been deprecated.

If the second is the case, could an older package be installed manually?

Thank you. I like this particular theme.

Another question : I installed Bodhi in essentially the same way and sequence on two different machines today - live install from USB, boot to desktop, install python-software-properties, software-properties-common from apt and then the papirus-icon-theme from PPA. In both cases, the icon set installs. I go to Applications -> Preferences -> Elementary Configuration. I then select the Papirus icon theme. But it Use this Icon Set only works in the first install, not the second. I can see the icon set as an available option, but it won't apply. And I'm not an advanced enough Linux or Bodhi user to be doing something tricky in the first case that I'm unable to replicate in the second.

I am aware of the fact that Jeff and the Bodhi community disapprove of installation-through-PPA; so if the community response to me is to go pound sand, I'll accept that. I do find it curious though.

Thank you.

NOTE : I figured this out five minutes after posting it. I hope that I'll be able to find a way to install the moksha-radiance theme also.

Please open a thread if you are having issues installing the radiance theme. Include the full output from the terminal that you see when trying to install.
