Which Elive version did you use, stable or beta?

If it's the Stable version, that's likely your problem - it's built on
Debian Wheezy so the software is really old.

Elive Linux is in my and many others' opinion, the best distro ever!
It is the distribution of the future, yet it is so lightweight that it
revives the past. Check it out! elivecd.org
