I downloaded the torrent for 14, did the checksum, burned and verified a dvd as usual. Ran it live. This is I think my 8th live distro dvd. This is the first one where Firefox did not work, no network connection. Check settings and saw no mac address listed for cable modem. Maybe that's it. Did some random looking at programs etc. Opened Gwenview. All seemed pretty much the same except I could not access one folder I copied over from my old hard drive. One folder, 8 subfolders, maybe 1000 images. None accesible. Didn't write down the error. I quit there and did not install number 14. I'll try again some non- Christmas day.
