Good morning to all

I would like to say that I liked all the potentials of this OS, especially visually spectacular but it is in the testing phase and it shows.

1) The wifi management does not work well, you have to enter password every time and there comes a time that you never recognize it.
2) The version of the terminal closes when it is in the background and must be reopened.
3) When starting well every time it does not get to do well and you have to turn off to start again.

thank to pine forum.

Thanks vv1, I'll try to answer some of the things:

1) yes, this is a known issue. I added it to the errata and it will be fixed with a future update, once it lands in Debian Testing.
2) if you mean yakuake, there is a small button on the right edge that looks like a "pin/needle" that you can press to have the terminal stay opened in the front.
3) can you check if something is running in the background right after login? it could be apt/xapian is refreshing its index or some other process temporarily makes things a bit slower, depending on the sdcard in use, as it is all performed on there. If nothing else runs, it should be very smooth and low-memory footprint (please note and deduct the FF+Web processes, that are automatically loaded in the back for a very quick start of FF, so if you close those processes, it should be around 350-400MB RAM in idle mode).

If you have any wishes or improvements like programs missing, please let us know and we consider them with the next update!

Have you run the installer? Networkmanager has a bug that it asks a second time about the password in live mode. It doesn't do this when installed though.

That is something you can configure in yakuake -> settings -> behavior.
By default we stick to that what we have on Netrunner 18.03 x86 aswell.

Can you clarify on this?
Do you mean logout and login? Or restart?

Currently the installer only uses the microSD Card to expand the to the maximum that this card offers.
Manually dd'ing might be possible though it isn't officially supported (please don't try if you don't know how to recover)
