I don't know if some of you know Eldy?
It's especially done for simplifying desktop for elderly or people not familiar with computers; you can run it Windows XP, 7, Vista, Mac, Linux PCs and also tablets and TV.
The interface is quite simple and very effective.

Had the same problem with all the recent GhostBSD images.
My solution (following some searches on the web I can't remember the link to) was, when blocked at that stage, to open another tty with Ctrl+Alt+F2 then become root then edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf with ee (the text editor you usually find in BSD distros) and change all the occurrences of the graphic driver (Intel in my case) with vesa.
$ su # ee /etc/X11/xorg.conf
After that you go back to your previous tty and $ startx will be working nicely>
I will try to find the links, they are somewhere in the old forums: http://oldforums.ghostbsd.org/index.php

"Knoppix is designed to be run from CDs and USB sticks. It was the first major "Live CD", but everyone can do this now."
Well, Knoppix has a very important plus: it's got Adriane ( http://www.knopper.net/knoppix-adriane/index-en.html ) for visually impaired.. and not everyone can do this now!
"Mint seems basically a Ubuntu with explicit support for non-free software.
Perhaps it ought be called "Painted Whore Linux" "
Sounds a bit overdramatic, it's for Gnome 2 lovers!
You might want to check LiveUSB MultiBoot; it doesn't require Windows, is easy to install and can be used with USB media of any size.
(NB: many languages available on top)
(For me, it's the next best thing after toast bread )
Otherwise, regarding your link:

^ Thanks, I know where to find spelt here, but what I really want is that: http://www.cerealbio.fr/decouvrir_gamme.php?id=2
These galettes are very good and healthy, but you can't find them here up in The North, where there really are few organic shops.
In France, I was used to have supermarkets entirely dedicated to organic goods, not only food.
At least here, I've good mince pies!
Didn't know there was a mandatory 20€ to spend in that online supermarket.
I've been checking on Monoprix online and a pack of this succulent raspberry biscuits costs 2.79€ only in France!
Otherwise, my sister is coming to see me in December and she's got a 23kg baggage allowance, so enough room for Savora (http://www.amazon.com/Amora-Savora-Spic … B00171GVAO) , spelt , various organic things I miss here, crêpes from Brittany and certainly for your Bjorg biscuits.
This way, sending them to you from the UK will be less expensive.
PS: Life in the UK for a French native is okay now that your can find some good baguettes here!
Found them; international deliveries from http://www.french-supermarket.com/en/or … bjorg.html
By the way, the 901 has got 2 SSD, a small 4GB one and depending on the model a 8 or a 16GB one.
As el_koraco told you, use a live distro to wipe your drives, but check before hand how many SSD your 901 has.
$ df -h
will list all the partitions and drives that are mounted
will list all the partitions, mounted or not,
If your live distro is having GParted ( $ sudo gparted ), it can give you a visual idea of all your disks; but resist to temptation, don't delete partitions from there, but use $ dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdx on the 2 SSD
Otherwise French usually have what they call a "box" at home, it gives you landline phone, ethernet and wifi access, plus often digital TV.
Your friends might have that. You log in with your phone number and a passphrase and you can also use that anywhere in France when you find a hotspot from the same ISP provider (ex: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_(ISP) )
You might also check this: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=145146
There's a bug report about it ( https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/30864 ) and the solution, provided your ~/.xinitrc is correct and you've been checking slim logs ( $ journalctl /usr/bin/slim if you're using systemd, $ tail /var/log/slim.log otherwise ), would be to install slim-nock (Slim w/o Consolekit support) from the AUR
Have you heard of that machine, with Wifi, QR code and all?

Merci beaucoup. I am never going to get the hang of masculine and feminine words...
Here are a few links that might be of help:

This one http://www.fourmilab.ch/francais/gender.html claims:
By learning the following 40 word endings, you can correctly identify the gender of 75% of French nouns with an accuracy of close to 95%. These rules correctly predict the gender of more than 13398 nouns you'd otherwise have to memorise. Ignore accents when using this table.
And don't worry, it comes with use and the French are very fond of French language spoken with a British accent and the cute little mistakes that come with it.
