The old page has been cached. That is not an issue. The HTML code needs cleaned up and the image optimized, but I am working on that. Also found a reference to our old IRC channel, still around but not used much. Replacing that with a link to Discord.

The Quickstart is fine! All essential information at one glance at the Landing page. That's the most effective way of communicating.

One remark: there are two typo's on the "Install Software" page: "tradtionally" instead of "traditionally". And "insall" instead of "install" (last line).

There is now a 32 bit alpha release available for downloading and testing. A few packages have been removed and some added. If you can test on actual hardware please do to ensure things work as before. The kernel version, a non-pae kernel, remains unchanged. Not easy to find a more recent suitable non-pae kernel to use. Everything else is more or less like the upcoming 64 bit rc ISOs.

Thanks! However, I have a suggestion to make.

The 32-bit alpha iso doesn't contain an Ubuntu kernel, but an older Debian kernel. Because of the need for a non-PAE kernel for very old hardware.

That's of course a good reason, but it has the disadvantage that that kernel lacks the useful additions and modifications by the Canonical Kernel Team.

So: could you perhaps also spin a 32-bit iso with the 4.15.x Ubuntu kernel? Because some old 32-bit hardware runs fine on that; even old Pentium M and Celeron M CPU's run well on it when booted with the kernel option forcepae. For example, for that reason the Linux Mint DVD even contains the "forcepae" boot option in its boot menu.

My idea is: there are already two iso's for 64-bit: LTS and HWE. So it wouldn't seem odd to have two iso's for 32-bit as well: non-PAE (Debian kernel) and PAE (Ubuntu kernel).

Of course it also depends on the amount of time that you have: it might require too much extra work. Anyway: what do you think?

Weirdly enough, I was considering that yesterday. I have a 32 bit non-PAE netbook and at one point (but no longer) had a 32 bit Desktop that would boot with the forcepae option. Just currently I have nothing to test the latter option on. Now that I have the VMs set up I use to build these ISOs it is not too much extra work. May have to take another look at the BodhiBuilder script and see how hard it would be to modify the boot options to support that.

I’ve burned the 32 bit alpha iso and installed and it’s great :-). Only observations so far are WiFi icon only appeared after first reboot (although it’s there when booting live). And terminal font seems very small. Also software manager page and forum page doesn’t shrink to fit smaller screens but can be moved with alt/function. But you probably know these things already and appreciate it’s a work in progress. Personally think it’s great and like the icons.

Install process went smoothly and installed fine. Like the option to install straight away as well as the option to boot live (tried both). That was on Celeron processor with 2gb ram.

Great you like it

Aren't you bilingual? Not offer to help us with some translations?

Unfortunately not apart from ungrammatical Franish ( my French went to pot after learning Spanish). Otherwise would have liked to help but don’t think I could do a reliable job with either language!

I have not saw the nm-applet issue you note. Unsure what would cause that, any msgs in .xsession-errors file in your home dir related to it? Ignore the EFL error msgs they mean nothing and are something coming from EFL itself. (There is a thread on the e-devel mailing list about EFL spitting out lots of warnings and errors on stuff that is not really errors, but let's just say they are there and it is what it is and will be like like until or if the e-devs manage to get it under control. For the record there are less of them or at least a different set of them with a later EFL, for what that is worth).

Terminal font size is terminologies default size and yes it is small. I will address that on the final release.

And yes epiphany starts up at a size to large for a small VM window. It can however be resized but perhaps not obvious to all how to do it. That one I may or may not address. Should be ok installed on most actual hardware. And epiphany's setting are some kind of gsettings thing. I already tweaked them to use Bodhi's default DuckDuckGo search string. I will take another look to see if it is easy to set the default size to something reasonable for a VM. But for the record on a Virtualbox VM one should be able to resize the VM window and hence increase the screen resolution size. May not work on the hwe installs but should work in the rest.

Still running nicely and Epiphany/software manager now loads to fit screen size thank you. I right clicked in terminology to look at increasing font size and somehow managed to make the right click menu so large I now can't revert! Any idea how I can do that? Doesn't really matter as I can still use terminology as usual - just can't use the right click menu. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling terminology but it's still extra large lol.

serendipity7000, delete the hidden folder ~/.config/terminology/ while terminology is closed. This should restore terminology to its default state, small fonts and all.
