My disk is not very big - about 160 GB - but some 10 partitions
This is not good, we may have a serious bug in Hardy ubiquty (We use that for Elyssa)
I'm not swedish but I lived in Sweden long enough to learn the language
Now, when it comes to Elyssa, I gave it another try. I installed it on my desktop successfully, not a single problem as the previous time. And I must say that I have never had a system working so fast and so smoothly on my computer before! Elyssa is simply gorgeous! Everything works just miraculously fast including compiz, which was enabled automatically! Great!!!
More so, even Photoshop with compiz enabled worked without problems! I haven't tested any games though.
Encouraged I even installed Elyssa on a laptop for my mother. I'm testing it right now, before giving the laptop to her, and even if it's not as fast (the hardware is a completely different story on this laptop compared to the desktop) it's very stable and it just couldn't really be faster.
I avoid youtube.com in firefox and watch videos through Totem instead. It's much more stable - no crashes as in FF3. And a tiny thingy I noticed that doesn't seem to work is that when you change size of icons in mint menu the icons look the same from size 1 to 3. Only setting it to 4 makes any difference and a big one at that.
A great thing about Elyssa is that my Logitech Cordless Desktop LX710 keyboard works great, far better than expected. Not only the multimedia buttons work (start a jukebox, play/pause, next, prev.) but even the buttons for search and email client. All that out of the box. The mouse is a different story, all the buttons work correctly in firefox only. I might try tweaking it with xbindkeys so it'll work in all apps. Anyway, for now I'm more than satisfied.
I simply cannot wait for the stable release
Thanx for the great job Clem & co.!!!
