I understand this is a high requirement hardware distribution
(which I fell in love with after seeing videos about it, but cannot yet install:
“Booting ver. 4.0.4 to ‘Try distr. before install’ shows some code then black screen.
Ver. 4.1.2 and ver. 4.2.0-rc5 only shows black screen”).
None of the above is the problem.
What I want to know/suggest is if there is a 1, 2, 3, … Steps that should be
done/followed for solving problems/before committing to this distribution?
0.A. If you want to use QUBES, This is Qubes, and this is:
0.A.1. What it does (Why use Qubes)
0.A.2. How it works
0.A.3. Benefits of what it does
If Qubes is for you, you can
1.B. Buy hardware supported by Qubes
1.B.2 Solution: “Link to buy!”
2.C. Install on your existing hardware.
2.C.1. Is your hardware on this list: Hardware compatibility list (HCL)
2.C.1.3 User documentation / Downloading, installing, and upgrading Qubes
2.C.1.4 Forum Category for “install/boot” support
2.C.2.1 Check if your hardware meets the required specifications
(A link for how to)
2.C.2.1.1 Yes, it meets the requirements
2.C.2.1.3 User documentation / Downloading, installing, and upgrading Qubes
2.C.2.1.4 Forum Category for “Specifications are met, yet to be supported hardware”
2.C.2.2.1 No, it does not meet the requirements
2.C.2.2.1 Forum Category for “Specifications are NOT met, yet to be supported hardware”
New users (me or others), can say:
I am on: 2.C.2.
looking for 2.C.2.1 (which I am), and I am
looking for 2.C.2.1.4
Basically, a checklist that one has to fill in before posting a topic for support.
This, I think, would help the developers in giving them higher quality data, and
make them better see where problems often or might occur.
I’ve not been here for a long time, so I do not know what problems people often meet.
Therefore I do not know how what other checklists could be good to make.
after update, after installing a package, desktop environment, …
If this is something that makes sense, then the right people should see a repeating
trend that could be fixed with this method.
It is exhausting how much I must read before committing, and I am looking for
something simple, for the autistics. I think that I am writing this because some of the
topics I read did/does not have a “if you have a problem here, ask for help in this
forum Category”, and am rather left lost, wasting time, looking for people that have
had the same problem as me. Am OK with that, but I want to go somewhere where the same
problem had occurred.
Just thinking out loud, and thanks for reading
