Right now, I'm typing this entry on Pisi. I've been testing it from the eye of a user whose Linux experience and knowledge are far from abundant.
I really liked the installer. It is polished and while installing, you get to know lots of information about Pisi.
My only problem during the installation was--as it used to be with old Pardus--when choosing the partitions. Yali (the installer) wants a clean partition to perform the installation and I wanted to overwrite my old Pisi partition directly. I had to ask Yali to delete the partition first and then to use it for the RC2.
Soon enough, I was greeted by Kaptan, who let me choose my initial desktop configuration. That worked flawlessly.
By the way, I noticed that this version's PiSi (the package manager from which the distro took its definitive name) is faster than the one of my previous version. It has more packages, too.
I did find some bugs and glitches, though.
The first one is a bug affecting the Spanish installation of the system. Fortunately, Yoyo Fernández, former Anka-Team member, had found a solution for it with this command:
pisi ur &&
pisi it glibc-locales-es
I also discovered some KDE glitches that are harder to describe, so I'd better use images:
|If an image is used as background for the cube, it will not be remembered after logging out of the session. Instead of the image, the background will be the selected color (black by default)|
|When used Ghost window decorations, a maximized window will show a color rendering issue on the top side of such window when active. This does not seem to happen with other window decorations.|
As it can be seen, Pisi is doing very well. I am very satisfied with this distro so far. No crashes, no ugly surprises, no serious problems.
Many thanks to the Anka-Team for their great effort in making this little distro what it is now.
