Hello!

I downloaded the Tanglu 4.0 core but I don't know which is the username and password, anyone can help me please?

Thanks in advance,
Max.

Not sure if known bug or not...

but on the most recent nightly when trying to install via the desktop; the installer crashed out with a python error when it tried to install to the Master Boot Record.

I then tried with the Debian Installer from the boot options. Which seems to have processed fine... but didn't actually ask for a user-name or password during the installation process. So now I'm stuck at a login screen with no idea what the default login account information would have been.

I had downloaded another nightly on 10/30; and the Debian Installer lacks the login creation step there as well. So I'm not sure how far back that particular issue goes.

A quick trip to the wiki and I don't see any clearly printed information on what the system default username and password might have been set as.

Since Tanglu 3, I have an eye on this distribution. Now, I have the daily build running on three devices (one normal, but powerful computer, one old notebook and my x86 tablet). Now, I would like to know how the development works and what steps would be the way to get involved more. My packaging skills are pretty basic but most of the time it is enough to get things done, and I have some knowledge of Python.

Sucess, graphics acceleration working. Not really fast, but hey - it is a tablet for less than 100 bucks. Next on the agenda: audio and Bluetooth.

Tanglu 4 daily build, running on my Dell Venue 8 Pro 3845 tablet (originally loaded with Windows 8). Hardware support actually isn't really good, but this isn't Tanglu's fault. Especially Intel: shame on you! ;-)

just installing dasyatis on my testing machine... huge updates. Now I do understand why it takes a "bit" longer.

For a few days now I'm getting:
update-alternatives: error: alternative link /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf is already managed by nvidia

I recently had an nvidia update, have to roll back something?

For any of you using Tanglu's devel branch:

The upcoming changes on tanglu-minimal and systemd on the Tanglu
development suite will perform the so-called "usrmerge" on the
distribution, merging directories like /bin, /lib, etc. into /usr.
This has some benefits, like easily mounting /usr read-only and
sharing it between machines.
Embedded devices will trim down /usr and any other distro modules as
much as possible anyway and be often debugged with an external
debugger, so having some minimal environment before /usr is there
isn't that important.
Also, /usr needs to be mounted by the initramfs if it is on a
different partition anyway, removing the need for tools in /bin.
For Tanglu, we do not target embedded systems at time and do not
officially support running without initramfs, so the usrmerge should
be pretty trivial and not be noticed by our users.
We were testing it for a week without issues now, so it's time to give it
a try on the development suite.

An issue is that we will NOT BE ABLE TO REVERT THE USRMERGE ON TANGLU WITHOUT COMPLETE REINSTALL, so people using the development release,please be aware of that!

Although we don't expect any mayor issues, please report any issues
related to this to the bugtracker early, so we can deal with them as
soon as possible.

For anyone interested in some historical trivia on /usr read on here:

Great job Pitivi!

I've been trying to figure this problem out since a month or so. I tried backing up my Tanglu system using Systemback and it did complete the backup process without any hassle but then what happens is when I boot the system I get this error in debug mode (yes the system worked properly but not he generated Live ISO).
