Hello Gadgetwizard1,

please try the final release.

E17 Crashes

I have downloaded, confirmed the MD5SUM burned two CD's one normal and one slow. When i boot the live CD I get an E17 crash with F1 or F2 options. Only F2 works and that drops me to a log in screen. I have tried user and live to log in but i'm just returned to the log in screen.

Any ideas?

Very fast and smart with enlightenment desktop environment and thunar file manager. I installed it on a spare partition one hour ago and I'm using it now. Just a release candidate but seems a lot more stable once installed onto the hard drive. I cleaned the shortcut icons off the desktop using Thunar file manager because at first it looked cluttered, now very elegant. Good work, people.
PS One small bug? So far I'm unable to set a permanent screen resolution - it always reverts to squinty small after logging out or rebooting.

Downloading now. Will give it a try. I like E17 on Bodhi, so this should be fun to test drive. Cheers!
