Sorry for the late reply.
we are working on 7.1 now. There has been huge amounts of effort behind the scenes( more than any previous release IMO) but we are hoping most all of it is undetectable to the end user.
We have the new installer to a mostly usable state and expect a public release soon.
If any of you would like to test the Alpha releases with us let me know.

In the mean time could I get some installer usage stats from all of you?
how do you run the installer? cdrom, usb from vinstall-iso
do you install all pkgs or not?
what would you like to see in the new installer?

Thanks,
Uelsk8s

I have been using the new installer for  a bit now IMHO only areas that need addressing is choosing a language a timezone and to be able to turn on turn off startup services and maybe import an existing user in the /home directory. I agree this has been our most exhaustive prerelease to date!! We have completely rewritten the installer from scratch and all the packages used in the distro are all built in a sanitized sandbox with dependencies tightly controlled. For the end user this should be a spectacular release. So those using vector please give us some early feedback so we can make it better as we are in the building stage !!!

Hi Lyn,

We would like to know what are the features you usually use, like:
Do you use the package selection feature from the installer? Or you just leave the defaults?
Do you use the partitioning tools in the install disk?
What would you change in current installer?

Everybody's feedback on these topics is welcome!

cheers!

I am not sure what the package selection is.  I don't recall seeing it.  In any event, its not very important to me. I always do a complete install using the whole disk.  I use the defaults for this.    

Quote
Do you use the partitioning tools in the install disk?

Yes.  I usually first check to see what is there in the way of partitions.  Then I partition into 3 partitions, swap, root and home.  I usually put 3 times ram in swap, never know how big to make the root partition, but as the hard drives on most of the newer computers are huge, I usually put at least 10 MB or Gigs (can't remember what they are called) on root (30 if the hard drive is big enough), and the rest on home.  I also use the partitioning machine to set the drives up as EXT 4 (if I recall correctly).  I no longer use reiserfs, though I don't know why and never had any trouble with it.  I prefer the partition machine in the old installer to the new one (partition magic or whatever its called)


Quote
What would you change in current installer?

I find that some machines still need the old installer, and so I use that a lot.  I would keep it.  Frankly, I think both the old and the gui installer are pretty good.  Like Lyn, I always download, then burn image to an install CD.

Post by: uelsk8s on November 29, 2012, 04:28:32 pm
good info guys, keep it coming.

I will post a link to an iso as soon as its ready

I just wanted to add a caution. the new installer comes with a new auto mode. in auto you select a HD(if you have more than 1) and the installer will create its own partitions(destroying any data on that drive) and complete a full install.

Hi Lyn,

In standard I use the defaults, in light I select packages - well groups of packages ie the Icewm
Quote

Do you use the partitioning tools in the install disk?

Sometimes, though generally not because I have partitioning set up as I want it most of the time, but from time to time I will start from scratch, reformat the drive and use the partition tools on the disk.

Quote

What would you change in current installer?

Possibly a better back button facility to go back in the install if you have made a mistake.  Better language support would make the distro more appealing to many.  Possibly a complete automatic install - I auto partitioning using the whole disk and install everything on default settings.

Hi,

On my desktop I usually install from CD but on my netbook I always do a install from usb disk.
I also do use the package selection. I only install the packages I really use.

I'm looking forward to test this release.

Successfully installed using Automatic mode (grub2) and Advanced mode (did lilo and grub2), with one caveat.  I had to set floppy to none in my bios or else the install would fail. (edit it would fail if grub was choosen as bootloader, lilo was ok) (My computer does not have a floppy, but the bios was set as if it did.)
It would be interesting for someone who does have a floopy to test and is if the error was caused by machine having floopy enabled in the bios but not actually having a floopy.

I know this thread is about the installer but just one point about NetworkManager...
I see NetworkManager has replaced Wicd, but when I first booted the icon on the panel was not visible, but I could right click on the vacant spot and edit my connection to set the password and it worked, just fine.  After setting icon appeared again.


Title: Re: VL 7.1
Post by: sledgehammer on November 30, 2012, 04:05:23 pm
Stretchedthin's comment caused me to reflect on the complexities of modern life and also write this post:

My general rule of change should apply here:  never change anything unless the cost of compliance with the new rule is justified by the benefit.  So please replace wicd with network manager only if network manager is so much better than wicd that it justifies the time and expense of having thousands of user learn how to use it.  And even then, please be sure that WICD is in the repositories so that those of us who believe that most change violates my general rule have the option to use WICD. 

And, if grub, which so far as I can recall I have never used, is to become even more of a standard, please be sure that those of us who use lilo and who have never had a problem with it can easily continue to do so.  Looks like you are doing this, though I question why lilo should be an "advanced" option.  I am certainly not advanced.  I read about people having boot-loader problems.  They seem to me to mostly be using grub. 

I have been using VL since at least 5.8 and the changes made have generally been improvements.  More particularly, with each new release, the upgrade process seems to get easier.  I am particularly impressed with the recent improvements which allow us to accurately import our old settings.  So long as I keep ext4 and don't reformat my home directory, the upgrade process has become virtually painless.

Downloaded and md5sum OK.

Installed on USB stick. Boot, ask me to wait, after quite some wait it tells
switching to init 6.

Burned a CD. md5sum OK. Booted, ask me to wait, after quite some wait
I get a blank page, at the bottom a panel in hide. Could play a game but
no further booting. Logout put me back to init 6.

Well your wishes are answered........:) Masta pushed out a 32bit live of our latest 7.1 build you can get it here:
http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/vec7/LiveCD/VL7.1-STD-LIVE-A13.iso

Title: Re: VL 7.1
Post by: Masta on December 05, 2012, 10:36:41 pm
what? who? lol
 
Just a note, there is no "new" installer in the liveCD, but there are some features fixed and added to the live installer.
For new installer (not live) see uelsk8s post above in this thread and grab a copy of the iso there, please test as much as you can and offer any reports you can find or think of.

Also, regardless of the liveCD being in Alpha stage or not, I think it would be good to report everything you can find for bugs and ideas. We can work on these as much as possible as the building process continues. This means everything from bootup through shutdown. If you find something, please make your testing time worth it's effort and report it here.

PLEASE,
Be sure to include information on which you are testing, if it is 32bit livecd, put that information in front of your reports. Separate your information if you are testing multiple iso. This will help save us all from guessing and confusion. This is the time, not after Final/Gold ;-)
 The entire Dev' team is looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanks in advance,
                             Masta

Yeah sorry, I forgot to mention the password stuff. It is as follows, for both versions:

Code: [Select]
vluser = vluser
root = root

overthere ,
    when you get time to test again, would you try running exaile from a user (vluser)?
xscreensaver will not run for root user, you may try this under a user as well.

-- cannot play DVD since no /dev/dvd

-- Audio CD does not play as well with umplayer.  smplayer, File>Dis>Open Adio CD opens nothing.
File>Open Folder>Audio Disc opens and does play.

-- $ brasero
brasero: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-3.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

-- changing session to fluxbox gives just a blank screen with mouse moving arrow only. Clicking any bottom gives nothing. Got out with Ctrl-Alt-F2 logged in as vluser and startxfce4 put me back.

Hi
Booted the 32 bit-std- live 7.1 a13 again today

 login as vluser
 (thanks for the passwords had discovered root as root but did not think a user was added as when going multi user gui mode text in red stated working as root)

From panel..found that although multiple clicks were required to find and add a password ( compared to wicd which showed available wireless and prompted for password when available chosen) I was able to connect.

1- Gslapt did not respond from menu item click but was available via a terminal as root and seemed to function.

2- Brasero does not respond from menu item click...in terminal libgtk-3.so error

3- exaile does now respond to menu item click but will not play a selected .mp3 file ( error no suitable plugin), file does play in um and gnome player

4- opened .png, .jpg and gif in geequi..fine...how does one play an animated gif?

5- chose random .avi, mp4, flash, mpg...mpg played fine....flash, avi and mp4, .. sound but no video, youtube flash played fine in firefox. If codec are added they are not working or not setup properly

6- the volume on the panel..opens a mixer with no controls set....what happened to the pop up volume control?

7- office menu items include epdfview and leafpad

8- when shut down the cd is not ejected, thus a reboot or power up to get it out of the drive.

I am curious, all the problems we are having with live right now is from the pkgs we are removing to fit live on a cd.
How many of you have dvd's?
how much ram do you have in your computer?
how would you feel about having to download 1.2G to install VL, if we went to a live only model?

This box has a dvd and I have been using a dvd-rw for the cd as it was available.

this box has low ram @ 768+/-megs and laptop has 512. How much would I need?

A live / installable dvd is not uncommon.

the light version would still be cd? thus my units will still have life with vector

Post by: nightflier on December 12, 2012, 06:07:45 pm
Purely my personal opinion: Yes, move on to images greater than 700 mb.

Linux just dropped support for the 386. Other distros are dropping CD size images. It's time to move forward to DVD and/or flash drives.
Title: Re: VL 7.1
Post by: Lyn on December 13, 2012, 12:10:00 am
My view is that we should try to keep light below 700MB but the other versions I don't see a problem with moving to DVD - but try not to pack too much into it (though soho is again slightly different).

Actually more than just the removed packages. We got wires crossed and the wrong iso is out for testing. We've made some more changes anyway, and a new iso set should be ready very soon.

Post by: retired1af on January 01, 2013, 04:16:31 am
While keeping it to a CD has been nice through the years, I don't see how we can continue to do so. If we start robbing Peter to pay Paul, it's time to rethink the medium. Yes, "Light" can be kept to one CD, but I think we're limiting what we can do if we keep to the "One CD" mindset.

As for the installer.

Allow me to pick and choose boot menu items in Grub. In other words, I NEVER share the same drive with Windows and Linux. Therefore, I'd love to be able to tell the setup to ignore Windows for the Grub menu creation. 

Along the same vein, allow the inclusion of boot parameters. On my old notebook, I had to set rootdelay during boot or I'd run into a kernel panic. Being able to set that during the installation would have been a godsend.

Now... Here's the really challenging bit. For an old hat like me that's been involved with computers since the late 70's, partitions don't bother me in the least. However, gparted can be a real nightmare for the noob who's dealt with nothing more than point and click and would immediately go catatonic if they had to work at the CLI. Perhaps we'd get more folks trying things out if the installer could see what's on the system and then make a recommendation as to what the best setup would be for the user?

Title: Re: VL 7.1
Post by: StrayBit on January 01, 2013, 12:42:46 pm
I agree about the suggested partition sizes.  When I reinstalled 6-std, I noticed that it suggested 3800M for / and 500 for home

First impressions...

Installer needs work. Virtually every installation program I've seen asks for your user password twice to ensure you don't fat finger the entry. Asking for the user and root password on the same page is asking for trouble. Especially since you only need to input the password once.

Still want the option to pick and choose which boot menu items appear in GRUB.

Once installed, I was unable to access the Internet, even though I was able to get wireless working. I even reran the networking portion of VASM. No joy. I'll monkey with it later today to see if I can narrow down where the issue is.

Thanks for the input we really do appreciate it.
I don't agree with the password section though. there has been a lot of research into password input by a lot of different organizations, and most of the consensus leads to what we have done there. There isn't a reason to make the user input twice if they can read the password, they can see if they made a mistake typing it.

I am with you on the grub menu items, the problem we have there is that it is not possible with the tools we have. That being said it is on my list of features to add, but to be honest it is way down at the bottom. The goal of this installer is to have an easy to use, bug free installer ASAP, then down the road refine and add more features.

B0.6 has a different kernel: http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.1/iso/VL64-7.1-STD-B0.6.iso
perhaps it is worth a try?

I'll give it a whirl.

OK.

Still no joy on getting to the Interwebz. Had more issues with B0.6 than I did with .2.

Install appeared to work, but upon reboot and logging in to the user account, I'm met with a warning that the /home directory for the user was not made. Reinstall came up with same message. Logged in as root, deleted the user account and recreated. Issue fixed.

Wireless still able to connect to modem, but still not getting out to the Interwebz. Even after redoing the connection information via VASM, it's just not working. See's the SSIDs in the neighborhood, is able to connect to the home network, but it's just flat not getting out. ifconfig shows wlan0 talking, but I sure don't know who it's talking to! Itself, I guess. >.<

So, decided to reboot and the system locked up at the login screen again. Can't get in at all now.

reboot to TUI, then login as root and reboot, see if you can login after that.
if you can login does wlan0 have an IP?
is there a nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf?

No joy. Can log in as root and user in TUI mode. However, once a restart is accomplished, system locks up at login. Or, if you try to sneak in via TUI by typing startx, system locks up again.

this is a bit perplexing.
I am not sure the best way for you to test. the only thing that has changed in the last 5 or 6 ISO is the kernel.
It is causing us major grief. you can either download and install kernels, or new ISO's
this one has the latest 3.7.4 kernel, and it has some intel bugfixes: http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.1/iso/VL64-7.1-STD-B0.8.iso
Vec really likes the 3.6.8 kernel, so if you can test it that would be great also.

Thanks,

Ugh! Someone needs to go give the server a kick. I'm only averaging around 20KB/s downloads from it right now.

Edit -- I'll try to download the new ISO later. Should just take a few minutes on this connection, but it's hovering between 10-15 KB/s which will take forever. Have other things I need to do without having to babysit the connection.

We're getting closer! :D

Still got the error about no /home directory/volume upon first login. Bugged out, logged into root to delete and recreate the user.

It appears that the networking portion is automatically trying to assign the network to eth0, regardless of what's detected. I need to go in and modify some stuff and change the network to wlan0, but I think I can get networking to work. We'll see. However that is an issue that needs to be corrected along with the creation of the user's home directory during the install.

Something I ran into with the installer that needs to be addressed. When the installer finds the ISOs on the hard drives, we need to annotate which drive the ISO was found on. My first download was flawed and had to download again, but the second download was on a different drive. Imagine my surprise when they both showed up on the installation list. Luckily, I picked the correct one.

No lockups this time around, which is a good thing. I'll play around with it and see if I can finally get it to connect properly to the Interwebz.
Title: Re: VL 7.1
Post by: retired1af on January 23, 2013, 05:00:06 pm
OK. This is strange. I tried to change inet1 from eth0 to wlan0 in VASM. Doesn't work. It clears inet1 completely when you try to change it. Wireless card sees the router and connects. ifconfig shows traffic being passed on wlan0. But it just doesn't see the Interwebz. Can't traceroute, ping, surf or anything.

Eureka! Figured it out.

Wireless IS talking to the Interwebz. However, I can't resolve domain names. I can access a site if I plug in the IP address, but the second I click a link, it bombs with a server not found error.

Same with traceroute, ping, etc. I get an error stating it cannot resolve the host name.

Some more thoughts on network manager.

Compared to wicd, it's more cumbersome with the VL install. What I've had to do is select the wireless connection and then edit the connection to provide the password. It's not asking when I do the initial selection. I was dinking around with Mint 14 XFCE and I didn't have to go through that process. When I selected the wireless router, it immediately asked for a password.

Is there a specific reason why we're looking to get away from wicd and use network manager?

Title: Re: VL 7.1
Post by: rbistolfi on January 30, 2013, 05:19:37 am
NM suports a much more wide connection schemes. It can discover network interfaces (wicd requires you to input the interface name when it is something different than eth0, which is a FAQ in this forum).
I dont get the behaivor you describe here, maybe this is a bug in our NM package that can be fixed.

Post by: retired1af on February 03, 2013, 09:55:22 am
That would be extremely useful. I just installed a shiny new 750GB drive which is dedicated to Linux. I'm planning on two copies of the VLocity beta. One will stay there so I can play online games, the other will be the testing distribution that can get torn up and replaced whenever there's a new update to be installed. Now I'm going to log out and install Fedora as I've always wanted to check that distro out. And with all this extra space I suddenly have, I don't have to decide what distro stays and which one goes. :D

Edit -- I'd like to expand on this a bit.

I'm a distro junkie. I like playing around with different distributions and I'm beginning to notice a disturbing trend with the newer installers.

They're made for the noob in mind. And while this isn't a bad thing, it's driving me mad with the lack of advanced options for GRUB installation. I would LOVE to see an advanced option that not only allows me to edit menu items before creation, but also specify the location of the grub files. As it stands, each new distribution writes the GRUB configuration to its own install location, and if I want it changed back to say /dev/sdb1, I then have to log into that distribution and rerun the GRUB configuration and then install GRUB again. That's a friggin' pain in the backside.

Having an installer that provided this type of flexibility is something I crave every time I install or reinstall a new distribution. I think it would be a feather in our cap if we were the first to actually provide it.

Doable? Or am I dreaming of the impossible?

And where's B0.13?!!!  :D

Installed B0.13 this morning. Still having issues with Network Manager. Instead of using VASM to input the router IP, I plugged the IP address into the Additional DNS entry in Network Manager. It seems to be working fine.

Don't know why Network Manager is being such a pain with this. All the other distros I've tried with NM has worked just fine without having to give anything more than the passphrase to connect. Weird.

I'll play around with the installation later today and report back with any findings. :)

Major progress in my case. I now have a working 64-bit system!   8)

Testing in Virtualbox:
Run 1: Advanced, un-select xfce and optional progs; install stopped at "Creating users". After waiting and checking that there was no activity, reset machine and got to a maintenance login.

Run 2: Fulliautomatix; stopped at same point, but reset brought me to gdm. I had to manually set root password and create a user. Otherwise, so far, so good.

Installed both B0.14 versions (32 and 64-bit).

VLocity installed OK, but froze upon reboot. Restarted again and made it to the desktop. Got Network Manager running and system froze again after starting Firefox. Restarted again, and once into the desktop, froze again. Not sure what's different between .13 and .14, but my notebook doesn't like .14.

32-bit version went better. No hiccups during install (and the mouse worked, too!). First reboot had no errors. Got Network  Manager running and am able to access the Internet with Firefox.

Going to reinstall VLocity to see if perhaps there was a hiccup during the install.

Don't think that's it. Some strange behavior after logging in. It's intermittent lockups as if there's something going on with the video. Mouse over on the menu icons and when you move the mouse pointer, the icon is a gray box. During the lockup, mouse moves, but can't select anything. Then it "unlocks" and things are back to normal, although it's brief.

Again, this is with VLocity B0.14.

As for 3.2.39 being in B0.14, uname -a shows: 3.4.30  This is on Vlocity 7.1 B0.14.

Installed B0.15 (64-bit). Upgraded the network manager and network app packages and it appears the bugs are finally gone. It's asking for a password on initial selection and I no longer need to add the router's IP address as a DNS entry.

Got Exaile to work finally. gst-ffmpeg needs to be installed. Should probably include that with the ISO installation.

Looks like a bug that the Arch devs figured out:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=51466

EDIT: fwiw, I built the package using the patches from Arch, and it fixed the problems on my test vm. Yes, I know.. I should learn how to make it happen using the buildbot.. will work on that.

i915.modeset=0 was pretty ugly. Literally. Looked like I was using a generic VGA driver in Winderz. **barf**

However, i915.modeset=1 seems to have done the trick. Mouseovers are nice and crisp with no delay or hiding.

The acid test will come later when I copy the game folder over and I attempt World of Warcraft under Wine. :)

Edit -- I take that back. Icons seem to be OK, however text under Thunar borks up while scrolling.
