"Once the backups were completed, and safely moved to an
external drive, it was time to burn the Elive ISO onto CD and see
how well the Live version does. I figured if the live version of
the Elive had Ecomorph running as smoothly as the dedicated
version, this was a no-brainer. So I popped in the CD and rebooted
the machine. What surprised me was once the live CD was booted, and
I went to run the installation, I was asked if I wanted to do an
upgrade. I figured, since I was going to be doing a fresh
installation, I should throw caution to the wind and see how it
would go if I went ahead with the upgrade. I did and, surprisingly
enough, all went smoothly. There were a few minor glitches –
I had to re-install OpenOffice and a few other packages, but
outside of that I was shocked that what was an Elive Compiz
installation managed to upgrade to a well running Elive
distribution. But what about Compiz (aka Ecomorph in Elive land)?
Simple. I had to enable it. Let's see how."
