Elive 3.8.16 installed into VM


Installation went well, and I have a beautiful elive system living on my machine. Haven't had much time to play with it yet, but it seems everything works as expected. The sole disappointment is systemd. I know that systemd can be rooted out, but I've never actually done it. Maybe I'll practice doing so in the VM, then consider whether I want to put Elive onto hardware.

Ten years ago, I distro hopped at the drop of a hat. Today, I'm reluctant to change distros until I KNOW things are going to work like I want them.

It sure is beautiful though!!!

May I point you to to this link, if you're feeling adventurous:

That gives me some confidence, since it is Elive specific. Thank you triantares!
