That is quite a luxury situation.
Could you please point the person who is
in charge for High Sierra FS to my bug
report about missing recognition of RRIP-1.12 ?
It is two weeks old and got no reply yet.
I found the user community of Solaris very

Why is Schillix-0.6.7 as Live CD not ready

although all tools are in the ISO image ?
After booting one needs only to set 5 symbolic
links to make it a rough but sufficient

Sometimes it does not look too bad.
Have a nice day :)
