Excellent! I have booted up from livecd. You have fixed many bugs from the
previous beta and now almost everything is looking very exciting) However, I
have found 2 problems with pcmanfm:
1) when trying to access network in pcmanfm, I can see labels of my
computers in my network, but I can't access them.
2) when trying to run pcmanfm via sudo command, it crashes with segmentation
fault (core dumped).
As soon as I can find some free time, I will try to do fresh install and
will send you some more feedbacks.
