A lot of love went into this new build... anyone may comment or ask questions... This is a PRIVATE TEST so there are no download links presently....

There will be a livestream tomorrow night along with an install tutorial... that video may be on the LIVE DISK and then there will be a RELEASE!

It was when I booted in. Not only did the graphical environment fail to load, but the system completely hung on that screen and message for minutes on end. No kernel panic or anything, but it reminded me of that.

you probably got a corrupt download... all of the other verbal test results are fine.

Solidified Slime? Eek. Downloading now. Sourceforge isn't being speedy for me today.

downloaded ISO today, tried the live version om my Lenovo X140e Think pad everything to be working except for the wireless network was not available. I'll try to see what happened.
Thanks for all the hard work guys, hope this can become my daily driver right now I'm on Manjaro and I use MX as my back up.

Ideally, if your hardware can run mainline Manjaro live disks, that is the optimal way to run it... I repurposed mCOLe to work on legacy efi and bios type computers... this is experimental software, expect to find bugs!

Hi Spatry, do you recommend installing it and then worry about the wireless issue or try to get wireless working on the live environment.

I could not include the entire library of wireless drivers in the live disks. Try install on a wired connection then use the hardware detection to get wifi working.
