Description

As user support makes obvious, it is unclear for too many people what the big picture is (e.g. the need to a first install, on DVD or manual installion, before installing the "real" USB stick).

Most of the information is already in the documentation, so this is more about reorganizing or writing a summary, than about writing an entirely new doc page.

This should be related to #5561 to remind users that DVD installations do not currently support persistence, until #5561 is closed.

Actually, https://tails.boum.org/download stops at the install step and links to the first steps category. We should have a page linking to the first step sub-pages instead :)

When it's done, different links should be updated (I'm putting one in the FAQ about unetbootin, for exemple).

#9 Updated by sajolida over 4 years ago

  • Category changed from Persistence to Installation
  • Assignee deleted (BitingBird)
  • Parent task set to #8584

Marking this as a subtask of #8584 as the web assistant will be the place to do that. Please don't work on this right now as we might duplicate or superseed all that.

#10 Updated by BitingBird over 4 years ago

I knew my work would only be used for some months, but I thought it would be worth doing something for the mean-time. If you think it's too much review work for only around 6 months of usage, I can renounce it - but I think it would be worth it.

#11 Updated by sajolida over 4 years ago

I think we should be able to find more lasting ways of spending our time :)

#12 Updated by sajolida over 4 years ago

  • Parent task deleted (#8584)

This will be in the assistant and we have a first wireframe for it:

https://tails.boum.org/blueprint/bootstrapping/assistant/overview/2nd_iteration/overview-20150324.odg

So I'm moving this as a first level subtask of #8580 and will close it once it's released.
