2 concerns:

1 - Can't connect via wifi  on at least 2 of my computers.  Fails on 
bootup -with message "direct firmware load for rtl9192ce /*(DEBLOBBED)/ 
failed with error -2"  or words to that effect. True of all  parabola 
versions I have tried.  Current Trisquel 8.0 Alpha loads & networking 
works ok on these computers so free firmware should be available.

2 - Still trying to get a workiing install of either LXDE or MATE openrc 
alpa  releases.  Installing to usb sticks.  Install & boots OK, looks 
good.  Cannot connect to any wifi.  Many sites found, fail with message 
"Not authorized to control networking" or words to that effect.  Don't 
have wired connections to most computers.  If it does work on first 
bootup, run updates, next bootup networking fails.  Repeatable error, 
many install attempts.
