Thanks for your work!
I have a problem - when I start tichy it gives me just black screen :(

I had some of the packages installed from anstrom repository, so it
might be a problem. But as I remember from previous tries - I had
black screen too. Is it treatable?

Tomorrow I will try to install it on clean and fresh SHR distro and
see what it gives me.
