I am fan of SliTaz since Vers. 1 and did use very intensive this version on my own PC (but it did never work on the PC of my wife. both PC's are DELL Optiplex SX 270 with different Chips and Processors and did change: the actual PC is a SX 280 mit 500 GByte Harddisk, enough RAM and CPU-Frequency but all have a common caracteristic: Intel Chip sets!).
As I am a fan I did translate a big part of the user manual into German, I would say 1/3 of it, it is a very important work, week after week... This German manual did be criticized (as I am not native speaker of German). but fortunately we did loose the old Wiki and with it the available 1/3 of the old German manual. there is no problem any more with it (::) .
and my enthusiasm for SliTaz did never decrease
although I had great difficulty to use
because of the hardware detection and installation because of these Intel chips (probably are Intel chips today to be considered as extremely exotic ;-) ...)
as I did never stop to visit the SliTaz forum although it did restart 3 time
it was possible to use vers. 3 again after I accidentally did discover a special flavour on the forum being adapted for the old graphical driver tinyX (although the dependencies are not adequate to allow it: some dependencies in SliTaz are in my opinion really silly dilly! for example you have to install a part of xorg to install the terminal mode browser 'links'. that make the use of 'links' to be a nonsens because of the consumption of RAM in the ISO. you did probably see my efforts to install 'arachne' for this reason, and because 'arachne' would be a real graphical browser with the flavour 'base' of SliTaz...)
an now my experience with Slitaz new Cooking
again the same disaster with the graphical driver alt. a new desaster with the keyboard driver for USB keyboard (Siemens high performance ergonomical keyboard).
and again no tinyX to allow to stay faithful to SliTaz.
of course al lot of my interventions in the French or English forum are not really comforting for the crew (I did read thanks from VIP to an other forum user for his feedback), but how to report with enthusiasm about great and constant difficulties (on the German forum on the other side are the most of my interventions help interventions for other).
I consider that the difficulties with some completely usual hardware like Intel chips are well known since years know and I am wondering to risk to publish a new version without tinyX and more with a Xversa from Xorg that inhibit the best choice (in my case Intel)...
