      Hello Olaf,

      You should use:
      username: kuki
      password: blank (no password)

      Keep in mind that linux is case sensitivity

    And how about installing it?

    When I select install it run as a live CD. I can’t find any reference to installation on the HD.

    “Kuki Linux is a Linux distribution built especially for the Acer Aspire One.”

    Hard to believe. First thing I tried was QT Configuration. I can only see the top of the window. I expect a distribution “built especially” for some hardware to be better configured.

    OK, it’s an aplha. Maybe Kuki 3.0 Pre Release is a better choice?

    I think you have a loooong way to go.

      Hi Janne

      Kuki 2.0 Alpha is an very old release of Kuki, you should try 3.0 preRC 1.6 that is the latest.

      “First thing I tried was QT Configuration. I can only see the top of the window.” this was a bug and it as been fixed in preRC1.6

      Everything should work fine. If you press Enter for installation Kuki stars as Live but in your desktop there is a icon called “Kuki Install”, double click on it and follow the instructions for installing. Also after installing kuki you should install latest kernel release especial builded for AAO.

      If you need some help, pls come to IRC or ask in our forum :)
