Title: new release vl7.1-b0.20 needs testing
Post by: vector on April 07, 2013, 10:42:23 pm
Thought I would start a new thread .......so the new testing does not get lost. We just released b-0.20 of our upcoming vl7.1 release and it needs testing. Hopefully most of the bugs have been eradicated this time so please test and see how we did. This release has the new text installer so give it a try and any usability reports appreciated. The text installer at this point crashes making partitions so please have your drive preset before using it. Heres the link to the iso good luck and happy testing and please give as complete a report as possible. With any luck this will be the last test before we make an official beta for public consumption.

32 bit:  neither gui nor tui recognized USB keyboard & mouse.  Controlled shut-down with power switch.  Very good!

Will try another machine with 'normal' keyboard & mouse as soon as I get a video card in it.

B0-20-32-bit

This was sofar the hardest to install.

First I tried with USB stick. GUI installer stalls at Loading Installation Environment.

Tried the new text installer. In my opinion strange indeed, however, somehow succeeded.
Except when booting X had no keyboard and mouse. No Internet connection and no sound card found.

Tried burned CD. Same GUI installer stalls at LIE. Strange text installer
scared me when it said formatting disks, plural. Aborted.

Some more trials all failed including installing with vinstall-iso-ng.
However, I then found that the problem arises when on first boot the
automtic hardware detection starts. That kills all. Int. con. and sound, may be more.

Realizing this I then aborted when it came to finalizing installation, and
believe it or not I have now a well working installation. Did necessary polishing
with vasm-legacy like time zone and users and avoiding hardware and sound
card detection. Survived 3 rebootings.

BTW keyboard and mouse are USB connected.

First, installation option changes are going to cause problems (where you select the three package options). Need to remove the word "only". Otherwise people are not going to select it (like me) and end up with an installation that won't work properly.

After second install, was able to log in via XFCE.

Same issues as before.

Still running into the issue where dhcpcd.conf isn't being written.

Mixer still crashing when trying to adjust volume with mouse wheel. (Even after configuring, it still crashes.)

Will test more later today.

64-bit: Two tests in VB.

One GUI installer "advanced" with basic X and dev: Worked fine with a pre-partitioned disk.

One text installer with same selections: Seemed to stall at 4% (hdparm), but there was obvious disk activity so I let it continue. It went to the last screen, and after (manual) reboot I had a working system.

I have not download b0.20 to double check the issue but I just learn that in b0.15 64bit the perl's @INC path is wrong...
maybe someone with the 64bit iso can double check it...

run perl -V in terminal to view the @INC path

Epson LQ-300 printer does not print. Filter failed.

Mixer does not crash when adjusting volume with mouse.

Exaile does not play audio CD; Playback error encountered, uridecodebin0

Changing session to fluxbox. Then in fluxbox click on exit shows a blank fluxbox screen with mouse pointer, however, does not exit. Ctrl-Alt-Backspace brings up the console, no gdm. Command startx goes back to xfce4. Menu-Logout, only logout to console.

Qt-config and gkrellm is missing the icon file...
txz file is missing the icon too...
The default icon theme is not complete...if you change any icon theme some icons will be missing...one way to solve this is to add all the icon theme name to each of the index.theme

I mentioned that my Epson printer does not print due to filter failure.
The same I have experienced with this new version of Cups in another
linux box with a Brother printer. Contacting cups I got:

Quote
You didn't mention if you had the cups-filters package installed with
cups-1.6.1.

On Linux, cups-1.6 and later need the cups-filters package which has the
pdftops, pdftopdf, etc filters.

May be that cups-filters package is missing in B0.20

Micron Millenia PIII 512MB ram 20G hd:

GUI Automatic:  got as far as installing glibc-2.16.0-I586-5vl7.txz then froze - had to power off (That may be the fault of this pc and why I had quit using it.)

It did repartition and used the whole disk!  Would it be possible to keep the screen from hibernating during the install?

GUI Advanced:  stopped (not freeze) at mounting target

TUI:  Allowed switching between Automatic and Advanced with arrow and space keys.  Enter and Escape did nothing.  Ctrl-Alt-Del rebooted.

We need you to do another install.
boot to the installer, go to the start menu and open a terminal, type "killall vinstall", then run vinstall from the terminal.
When it gets to the lock up at loading bootloader, open the teminal and either post a picture of the traceback or type it here.

No go, can't kill with Ctrl +C , and if I kill via a terminal command (killall) and then type the command I get:
grup-probe: error: cannot find a device for /boot/grub

No path or device is specified.
Try "grub-probe --help" for more information.

I forgot that you would have to run the command from inside the installed system.
once the installer gets to that point of failure, open a terminal chroot into the newly installed system "chroot /dev/sda1" and then run the grub install command from there "grub-install --no-floppy /dev/sda"

Tested B0.25 32-bit.

In VB: all good.

On real hardware (same machine), USB mouse, PS/2 keyboard; flawless install, then, upon reboot:
- keyboard ok, no mouse.. no light from sensor.

Switched to PS/2 mouse, USB keyboard: All good.

B0-26-32bit

First impression: IMPRESSIVE

Burned a DVD. Installing from USB stick did not work. Used unetbootin to put it there.

Great GUI installer. Did run smooth from beginning to end. The best so far in VL.

Choose fluxbox as session could not exit with menu exit.

More later.

B0-26-32bit on real hardware, nvidia vcard:

At first I thought it was frozen at the gui "loading installation environment" splash,
Pressed F2 and text installer appeared.
Install normal.

Upon reboot, no USB mouse.
I watched the light on the bottom of the mouse. It is on during POST and GRUB.
When VL starts booting, it goes dark.
Messages go by too fast to see exactly when it happens.

B0.29-64bit: No problems in Virtualbox.
On real hardware; Core 2 Duo 1.8, 2G RAM, Intel video, PS/2 kb+mouse, install from USB stick created with Unetbootin:
Installer stopped at boot loader selection. When clicking "Next", the button grayed out but nothing happened, nor would it respond to further inputs. Killed the process and restarted vinstall from terminal. Error message showed that "SOURCE" was not mounted. Killed and restarted installer, then manually mounted SOURCE before clicking "Next". This time it copied all files to hard drive. Boot loader failed to install, but LILO from previous install still worked. Alas, as so many times before, reboot brought up a machine where X did not respond to inputs. Ctrl+Alt+SysReq+r e i s u b reboot, choose TUI and I have mouse and keyboard, but no network. Use startx and system becomes unresponsive.

B0.29-32bit: No problems in Virtualbox.
Real hardware: Pretty much same as above, except GRUB did install. Upon reboot, I get kernel panic and boot stops on both TUI and GUI.

It is an Epson LQ-300 24 pin impact printer. Cups does not see it so I enter the Uri with that printer program.
Cups does then recognize it yet it will not print citing filter problem.

Actually the last VL in which cups did find this printer was version 4.8.  I then kept the configuration files and
copied then to the next version.  That worked until cups changed things and I have to keep working with
cups-1.4.6 in order to use this printer. That is true for other linux distros as well.

What I get from that link is that Apple/cups does not want to or is not

B0.33 on real hardware; Intel E2160 1.8 GHz, 2G RAM, Intel video, install from USB stick created with Unetbootin:

Both versions:
Had to press "Space" or wait 30 seconds to continue because of unknown video mode.
Fully automatic install without any errors.
Reboot gave kernel panic. Unable to find "sdb". Plugged USB stick back in and boot worked. So.. with USB stick inserted, it becomes sda and hdd gets sdb. Remove stick and hdd becomes sda, confusing boot loader.

Booting to working system:
No real boot splash, just a jumble of text and horisontal bars.
USB keyboard and mouse work as they should.
The Desktop folder on the Desktop is still there.
Only one of two CPU's showing.
Applications look .. "ugly".. like an old GTK theme. Probably video mode?
32-bit had problems with the wired NIC, repeatedly showing spinning circles and the "Disconnected" message.

nightflier, I got the same mess on the first reboot, but it all smoothed out on subsequent reboots. Your's isn't doing it?

On 32-bit, second (or third) boot does give me a beautiful bootsplash with little points of light floating around. Then it drops me to text mode as X refuses to load. Running vxconf gives me a long string of errors and an xorg.conf with garbage in it.

Gonna give 64-bit another run and see how it behaves.
EDIT: Same thing with vlocity. First boot no splash but working X. Second boot working splash but no X.

OK the same issue with the 64 bit version, grub install hangs - can boot using the cd, most things seem to work will report more when I get to pay with it properly.

Installed B0.34 (64-bit) this morning. Still getting that god awful Plymouth mess on first reboot. Installer worked well with no issues detected.

Subsequent reboots are fine with the "splash" screen working as designed.

B0.34 64-bit on real hardware (Intel):
First test installed from burned CD.
Second test installed from USB stick made with unetbootin.

On both, install was fine.
First reboot garbage splash but working system.
Second reboot pretty splash but no X. Error messages indicated attempted use of vesa driver and "no screens found".
Edited /boot/grub/grub.conf, removed the "quiet" and "splash" options and got plain text console boot (the way I like it :)), then GDM and a working system.

On install from USB stick, edited grub.cfg to point to correct root filesystem. Since SATA drive designations are liable to change when people insert or remove USB sticks, we should use UUID instead of hardcoding /dev/sdxx into grub configuration.

When enabling boot splash, it continues to run on tty1 the whole time. Don't think it should.

B0.34 32-bit on different hardware, Intel P4 2.8 GHz dual core, on-board i915 video. Installed from burned DVD disc:

Works pretty much as 64-bit on other machine. Had to disable boot splash to get X running.

Different look than 64-bit. This one has square dialog buttons, whereas the other one is rounded and generally looks more polished. On a positive note, this one gives me up/down buttons on the scrollbars, which I like. See screenshot.

Try both B0.33 on virtualbox...below is my finding

1. qtconfig and gkrellm is missng their icon file in the application menu
2. the new installer work but still need some polishing :P
3. gdm theme is different on both iso
4. the xfce theme on 32bit is not complete
4. the icons set on 32bit is a bit incomplete. the index.theme on all the icon set need to inherit each others...
5. Dia is not working on both iso with below error

Quote

A little more info: Tried on a third machine; P4 with Radeon RV370 (X300), one sata hdd, one pata cdrom and one sata dvd drive:

+ Got both bootsplash and X to work on this one.  ;D

- Grub would not install, complaining about unusually large core.img and refusing to use blocklists. Used lilo instead. Manual edit of lilo.conf was necessary, replacing uuid references with /dev/sdxx.

Looks like Plymouth is part of the running system itself, not a boot loader function? Either way, no matter how pretty it might be, I would never use it in its current iteration. Attached pictures show why.

We don't have much of a choice. The old bootsplash method is not longer supported with the newer kernel. I've done some digging around out there, and I didn't find anything stable that can replace Plymouth.

A little google search indicates that the Plymouthd daemon should be stopped when the login manager is started.

No doubt we will get it to work, it's just a new thing for us.

Post by: hata_ph on June 03, 2013, 09:29:05 pm
Running on B0.34

1. gkrellm icon is visible on the application menu but qt entry is missing, is that on purpose?
2. gdm theme still different on both iso
3. dia is removed on both iso
4. right click on desktop, the icons for Create Launcher, Create URL Link and Open Terminal Here is missing. Adjust uca.xml to change the icon for Open Terminal Here but I have no idea how to do that for Create Launcher, Create URL Link
5. desktop and icons theme still need some work

EDIT: It seem the problem of missing icon is due to out-dated faenza icons set that come with the VL_Themes package. I have build latest faenza-icon-theme, faenza-xfce and faenza-cupertino in the untested repo and by installing it solve the missing xfce icon. Maybe VL 7.1 should use it and remove the old faenza icon from the VL_Themes?

Now for some good news:  ;D  B0.34 64-bit on AMD Athlon 64X2 4200+ / ATI X1200 video / 3G RAM:

Flawless install.
Second boot showed Plymouth splash, but it starts so fast you only see it for a second or so.
All hardware working.
Both processors are showing up.

More ammo for you Vector:  :P

New kernels and boot procedures complicates more things.
Using this kind of line does NOT work with LILO:

Update cups, cups-filters and foomatic-filters to fix the libdir issue in 64bit...
I also rebuild foomatic-db-engine due to it invalid format of packages name...
update hplip to version 3.15.3 to fix issue printing with hp printer due to the old version of foomatic-rip-hplip (maybe someone should review the changes i did to the slackbuild)

On B0.34,

run vxkbset, give me a message "Cannot find X11 keymap list".
btw, since the VASMCC is not ready, should it not symlink vasm-legacy to vasm under /sbin?

run vfdisk give me below message...I am not sure is that due to I am running on vbox or not...maybe someone can test it out

Quote
mount: can't find /mnt in /etc/fstab
ERROR: No /sbin/init found on rootdev (or not mounted). Trouble ahead.
           You can try to fix it. Type 'exit' when things are done.

No problem on 64bit thou...maybe a bad download...downloading the 32bit iso again

on 64bit, qpdf-3.0.2 need to be installed for printing to work...

I tried 32bit B0.35 and I get the same result.  So I'm pretty sure your download is good.

B0.35 64-bit in VM:

Good install.
No Plymouth splash on reboots, just the horizontal bars and text. Tried 4 times. I did see the plymouthd process running after desktop loads.

Then I decided to play a little with LILO using UUID references. Here is a lilo.conf with 5 working entries:
Code: [Select]
# Custom LILO configuration file
# All these configurations work, booting without any splash
#

lba32 # Allow booting past 1024th cylinder with a recent BIOS
# Specify full path to the UUID for boot volume
boot = /dev/disk/by-uuid/c3649c58-5448-4202-8318-2eb62b7ba101
default = linux1
compact
prompt
timeout = 100
change-rules
reset
bitmap = /boot/bitmap/boot.bmp
vga = normal

# Partition 1: Traditional
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/sda1
label = linux1
append = "2 "
read-only

# Partition 2: With VL initrd
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/sda1
label = linux2
append = "2 "
initrd = /boot/initrd
read-only

# Partition 3: UUID, initrd created using guide from web site:
# http://nil-techno.blogspot.com/2012/01/using-lilo-to-boot-disks-by-uuid.html
image = /boot/vmlinuz
label = linux3
append = "root = UUID=c3649c58-5448-4202-8318-2eb62b7ba101"
read-only
initrd = /boot/initrd.cpio

# Partition 4: UUID, using initrd.gz created using above guide
image = /boot/vmlinuz
label = linux4
append = "root = UUID=c3649c58-5448-4202-8318-2eb62b7ba101"
initrd = /boot/initrd.gz
read-only

# Partition 5: UUID, no initrd statement
image = /boot/vmlinuz
label = linux5
append = "root = UUID=c3649c58-5448-4202-8318-2eb62b7ba101"
read-only

Separate issue: Watching the text on bootup, I see where cpu0 goes down.
Doesn't look like an error, just "cpu0 is now off-line".

Just installed B0.35

I'm impressed with the results.  No install glitches, runs smooth (with the exception of the boot up process).

A couple of things I would adjust.

1.  Remove JPilot.  I don't know if Palm still has devices in the market anymore.  Everyone has moved to android, BB, and apple phones now.
2.  Fix the vcpufreq error (rebuild qt? or remove it from the menu)
3.  Remove the leftover "Desktop" directory from the actual Desktop (rm -rf ~/Desktop/Desktop)

Notice how none of these are really show stoppers... they're just a few annoyances I found on my short initial test.

B0-34 32-bit

Got it working, mouse, keyboard and Internet. For the latter had to enable
some settings in rc.d/functions-network. Rebooted and was connected.

DVD and audio CD playing with umplayer.

Claws-mail crashes on clicking OK after reconfiguring Preferences.

don't mind since I will use cups-1.4.6 if time comes for it.

Saving space, just a thought; there is functionality overlap between hexchat and pidgin. The multi-protocol pidgin would get my vote to stay. Since these apps assume internet connectivity, getting them from the repo is not unreasonable.

I saw B0.35 in the repo and download it....but i cannot boot on 32bit (in virtualbox) with below messages

Quote
mount: can't find /mnt in /etc/fstab
ERROR: No /sbin/init found on rootdev (or not mounted). Trouble ahead.
           You can try to fix it. Type 'exit' when things are done.

No problem on 64bit thou...maybe a bad download...downloading the 32bit iso again

on 64bit, qpdf-3.0.2 need to be installed for printing to work...

For those who want to try B0.35 32bit, pls follow below instruction from vector

Quote
Those of you that have tried to boot the 32 bit version of vl-b0.35 and have received an error no init found this is because we omitted the initrd from the system due to the deprecation of our old bootsplash system. The 64 bit system still retained the old bootsplash initrd so it still booted but no splash. What I would like you all to try is our new bootsplash system called plymouth. This system is used by all the major distro's and a lot of the minor ones but unfortunately there is not a lot of documentation floating around so we are doing this kind of hit and miss. We originally added some code to our boot scripts to see how plymouth would work and it does for some but most get a garbled text and progress bar sort of thing that is not very attractive. The most effective way of getting plymouth to work is with the initrd method and with a few terminal commands which I will explain you can get your 32 bit system to boot and most likely have a nice bootsplash and the 64 bit users should get a bootsplash too. The 32 bit users need to boot their installed system from the install media either cdrom or usb stick but instead of just pushing the enter key to start the installer follow the installer text which tells you how to boot an installed system something like this...........linux root=/dev/sdxx ro. Once you have your system up and running time to make the initrd for your system. Open a terminal and do:
 cd /boot
then
mkinitrd -c -u -m nouveau:intel:i915:intel_agp:drm:radeon
then
mv initrd.gz initrd
thats it new initrd done! You should be able to boot and see the new plymouth splash as well.
64 bit users only need to do the mkinitrd instructions as they can boot.
Please reply as to your experience with the bootsplash process.
Thanks all for testing !!!!

Now you see why it's so hard to keep things limited to a CD for this distro. The second it's suggested something be left off, people come crawling out of the woodwork crying that it needs to stay.

Some hard choices need to be made. Either keep it to a CD sized ISO, and download the odd program or two from the repo, or we keep everything on it and you're now using a DVD to burn the ISO to.

Which is it? Hmmm?

B0-34 32-bit

Can't help with the plymouth splash since I have no splash screen running.

Further want to mention that abiword and gnucash do open now; fluxbox
exits now to login screen.

If I login as root and logout and click restart on login screen nothing happens.
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace gives me new login screen and clicking restart works.

Logged-in as user and out restart works immediately.

Plugging a USB stick it is not mounted. It does not show on the desktop nor in thunar. CD player does when disk is inserted.

Suspend is not working. It only suspends the networking which then cannot be restarted.

If advanced wont work thats a bug to be fixed, we will fix xfs once we discover the source of the problem.
Keep in mind this is beta software... there are errors to fix.

Hexchat v Pidgin:

I'm a devoted Xchat/Hexchat user. Wouldn't touch Pidgin with your keyboard and a very long stick.

Yet my opinion is that on the ISO, Pidgin should stay, Hexchat must go.

1. Pidgin covers more protocols.
2. It's more like what brand-new users have seen before.
3. Hexchat users know how to add and remove software, and usually how to add BitlBee or such if wanted.

Of course, if the size difference between the two decides in favor of Hexchat on ISO, no complaints here  :)

Hmm xfs is disabled for root from the very beginning because it was causing problems with bootloaders. The error is that it shouldnt be offered as an option for /, at least until a fix for the other problems is found.

you see 60 G hd used for install, before install only one partition ntfs onit
i deleted  with gparted, then made one promary partitionat 20G for /, 8G for  swap, then extended partiton 27G for /home,  except swap ,a ll were  formated to xfs

was my partition made wrong  then system refuse  to install?

never had such daunting install experirneces with vl7.1 64 bit...

it hangs at  there for advance installl...

only possible to install with auto install. that's in ext3.. a bit slow.

tested pulling out hd  to another pc installing , same issue, no advance install possible.

please do advise the proper correct method for making 3 partitions(/, swap, home)on blank hd  with gparted or other tools.
maybe VL 7.1 developper should also give partition model plans for user to chose when installing, like mandriva  always advise which partition setting  are suitable.

B0-37 32bit

Burned DVD. Tried to install from with GUI. It does not go Forward when a partition is
assigened as root no matter if set to format or not.to format

Tried TUI installer. Same after assigning a partition as root and clicking on Next
it jumps out to console as root.

Tried good old Setup and it will not find the CD.

On B0.38..

Running text installation on 32 and 64bit give me below error
Quote
No filesystem could mount root, tried: reisefs ext3 ext2 ext4 vfat msdos iso9660 ntfs romfs udf jfs xfs ocfs2 brtfs gfs2 gfs2meta
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknow-block(1,0)

Automatic GUI installation work. But I notice it will not use the full disk size when auto partitioning. For example, I have a 10GB vbox disk, it will create 8GB as / and 1GB as swap...and there will be around 400MB plus of unpartition free space left

Advance GUI installation work on both version but if you choose lilo as the boot loader it will hang at the installing bootloader stage...choose Grub2 and it work finish the process.

On 32bit, system will hang at bootsplash after the installation. Press esp key will let u go to TUI login, type startx will show xinit: connection to x server lost, type startxfce4 give me a vanila xfce4 desktop

On 64bit, every work fine...just notice there is a Desktop folder on the xfce4 desktop....

btw, why the default hostname is darkstar.example.com?

B0.39 32-bit from CD to hardware.
No matter what, won't install lilo to any bootsector -- just hangs.
Booting to install from CD, X won't start.
I'm not inclined to let it fiddle with the MBR.

.Just installed B039   64 bit,

install process went smoothly, installer still can't  find right resolution for samsung syncmaster 920nw lcd  monitor, can chose advance install, xfs ok.

but intel g41 vga  chip can't be loaded correctly, it now  is working as vesa  mode, other mode doesn't work at all.

resolution problem for samsung syncmaster 920nw lcd  monitor remains under gui desktop as well.

please  fix up the driver issue with g41 chips  asap.

issue for halt ad poweroff, it won't turn off power on desktop  totally


fan still running

always have to press power button 3 seconds to power off 100%

it remains

Thought I'd given up on above install, but
Tried booting from CD to installation again. Still no X.

Tried this, got this answer:
root:# vi /etc/lilo.conf
vi: error while loading shared libraries: libpython2.7.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


vasm-legacy > install lilo. Fails.
rebooted to pre-existing 7.0,  vasm > install lilo. Succeeds. Still no X in B0.39 install.
There are many reports of missing libs throughout.

Can log on as root with roarde's password and vice-versa. If this was intended, unintend it.

Now I have truly given up, but have retained the installed-to partitions for now.

For those who (like me) didn't know:
The GUI installer can be re-started from a terminal. When the installer first loads, press the "back" button. You'll be faced with a blank screen. Right-click on the background or mouse to the lower left corner to see ways to launch a terminal. Once it's up, issue "vinstall". The terminal will disappear and be replaced by the initial screen, but mouse to the lower left to see the minimized terminal, ready to be pulled up again. You can also start other terminals during the process.

Now you can see high-level error messages in the terminal, (u)mount partitions, copy over useful info like terminal pastes, install.log, and subprocess.log.

If mounting partitions temporarily, be sure to umount them as soon as possible. But this is usually done after failed install anyway, so . . .

B0-39 32bit vinstall-iso-ng installation.

Wow, wow, wow! Is it true? ;)

Installed, flawless booting into X xfce4 with all icons showing on desktop and panel. :D

First clicks on icons  programs working. Forgot firefox just now, however, Internet
connection up. Gkrellm up.

In ../X11/xinit/@xinirc still points to non-existing kde.

More later.

Post by: Pita on July 07, 2013, 05:52:11 pm
The euphoria was prematured.

On second boot again no mouse, no keyboard, no Internet connection, no soundcard found, no.....

Made a new install from DVD using TUI installer. Went smooth to the end,
however, like with the GUI a lot of programs were not installed and I could therefore
not open X.

Manually installed packages with upgradepkg --install-new /Packages/*/*.txz.

Worked perfectly and I have now a B0-39 box hich has survived several bootings.

Observations:

Suspend does not work it only kills Internet connection.

Shutdown not complete, fan etc still on.

Opening gpm gives first an error not loading theme fedorainfinity since not found in /usr/share/gdm/theme.
When acknowledged gdm screen opens.

Menu>Accessories>Root-Terminal does not work.

USB stick not recognized, therefore cannot be mounted. CD shows-up on Desktop.

Tried several programs and all seem to be working properly.

I do not in particular like the black background of the panels.
Changing it makes the foreground letters not very readable and I could
not find a way to change them to black.  Workspace switcher stays back
and can barely be seen.

still no 3D  for intel g41 chipset vga yet  on vl7.1 -64?

This is something you'll most likely need to flesh out in xorg.conf. The mesa driver supports 3D operations on the G41 chipset, but you need to specify in xorg.conf how it's addressed. Be prepared for the day when xorg stops supporting that chipset as well. It's pretty old as far as intel graphics goes.

downloaded vl7.1  b40   64bit,  now installng.....

can boot, but install process hang at copying package gambatas2....... vinstall is buggy......

please offer fix  instaler , so we can install

Saying "it's broke" doesn't help fix things. What method of installation did you choose? File system? Disk space? Partitions? You need to provide details, not generalizations.

anyway, vl7.1 64   040 version 's installer made problem, file install copying stalled at 10%....
then changed to version 039 installer, can install and boot, but on xfce no mouse  no keyboard, guess intel g41    x org driver does n't work properly due to the kernel patches on vl7.1 40 version....
same mb under knoppix 7.20 and mandriva,work in 3d  nicely....

hope vl7.1 developper will release new fix installer and driver for g41 chipsets....

>.< The MESA 9.1 driver DOES support g41 and 3D operations. Knoppix 7.2 uses an older version of xorg server as does Mandriva. Again, this is most likely NOT a driver issue. It's most likely an xorg issue. You can try creating an xorg.conf file via VASM to see if the issue corrects itself.

still no 3D  for intel g41 chipset vga yet  on vl7.1 -64?

This is something you'll most likely need to flesh out in xorg.conf. The mesa driver supports 3D operations on the G41 chipset, but you need to specify in xorg.conf how it's addressed. Be prepared for the day when xorg stops supporting that chipset as well. It's pretty old as far as intel graphics goes.

acording to intel  support,

libva-intel-driver  pkg 's needed, but it's not available with vectorlinux7.1-64

regarding g41 chipsets, read here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_GMA#GMA_X4500

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets

it was launched in the 4th quarter of 2008

g41 is not old, many mb still embeded with  g41 chipsets.

B0-40 64-bit (by mistake actually wanted 32-bit)

Burned DVD. GUI installer run smooth to the end.

Booted with no problem.

All controls working except "Suspend" and "Shutdown".

Sound/Video OK. Checked quite a few applications, all working.

Rebooted 3 times and system holds as setup.

I use a +RW DVD and find it very convenient since burning is very fast,
may be 1/6th of the time then when burning a CD.

Should I try the 32-bit version?

Yes I just did and posting this from this install on my desktop PC. The TUI installer does not work

Every single beta version that is released is installed and tested. In fact, I'm using B0.40 right this minute, and will continue to do so until .41 is released. Then I'll be using THAT release.

Key point to make as well. These are Beta releases. There will be issues to be ironed out and there are absolutely NO guarantees that it will work on every single system. Posting every 5 minutes crying about getting something to work doesn't cut it, nor is it appreciated.

now finally figure out the issue for g41 running xorg.conf,after completing vxconf command,in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf

must in line 106 and 120 (devices section) add :Identifier  "Card0"
Identifier "Card1"

in Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen1"
change-----Device     "Card0"  TO Device     "Card1"

then voila....X can run with intel driver in 1440x900 with 3d......
 
vxconf failed to generating  correct workable xorg.conf    file,have to edit manually...

ho did you manage to install vl7.1 64 iso? burning a cd or unetbootin or vinstall-iso-ng?

did manage to install  b040  under knoppix 's runlevel 2 as root with ./vinstall-iso-ng  , but only text installer available then.

Thank you for posting a solution.

Do have a the xorg.conf before and after you edited the file?
That would be helpful in trying to diagnose the real problem.

Having to change Screen and card identifiers usually point to
another screen and or card in place (the reason for the request
on the before and after file).

The other thing that would help is a list from lspci command that
needs to be run as root.

B0-40 64-bit

I mentioned that the TUI installer does not run when trying to install
from a USB stick put on with unetbootin. That was the case already
with previous versions and 32-bit.

However, TUI installer works always when installing from a CD/DVD.

Another reason I prefer installation from DVD. Putting an iso file on a
DVD is as fast or faster as loading it on a USB stick with unetbootin.

guess your isp blocked port 25, pls change smtp port as 465  or 587

install VL64-7.1-STD-B0.38  now with samsung lcd monitor,
now chose advanced , it will go forward.....now still installing.....
another bug for samsung lcd,
installer can't distinguish samsung syncmaster  920nw lcd well,which should be working at 1440x900 resolution  in standard...when installing with sync master series of lcd, installer keeps flashing,thenshut off,have to press  switch on  every 2 minutes....
anyone use samsung syncmaster lcd  for installig??

920 nw specification is in attachment hereby

now finally figure out how to  get  samsung 920nw lcd working at 1440x900 @60/75resolution  in standard,
have to edit xorg.conf again, in the Section "Monitor",
add:
ModeLine       "1440x900" 136.49 1440 1536 1688 1936 900 901 904 940 -hsync +vsync

then
add another line in the section "Screen"

Option         "metamodes" "1440x900_60_0 +0+0"

only need to change grub  menu  abit, root=/dev/sda1   not sdb1 or sdXn.......

once in xfce4 desktop, same not recognizing samsung 920nw, have to go to xvconf , making manual editing....

ALSO CAN NOT PLAY CD VCD  YET....
poweroff halt can't really turn pc off still

B0.41 32-bit from CD to real hardware. Chose not to install XFCE.

Pointer is very hesitant and jerky both in installer and installed system. Cannot pass partition selection in GUI installer without using pointer.

There's no mkchroot. Yeah, I know it's mainly intended for buildslaves, which implies 64-bit. Still useful for 32-bit, though.

Lilo install works now, but lilo bmp is ugly and text is misplaced. https://bitbucket.org/roarde/lilobmp/downloads/lilobmp.tar.bz2 (https://bitbucket.org/roarde/lilobmp/downloads/lilobmp.tar.bz2) I'm not suggesting using this splash for lilo, just using it for a demo. I'd mentioned that each arch may need its own lilo bitmap. Now I'm not so sure. I don't have a 64-bit, maybe someone can test the bitmap and data file in the tarball on a 64 and report back. I plan to remove that repo and tarball from bitbucket fairly soon.

Some users may have trouble connecting with their wireless in their previously-installed system after testing this install. The problem is faulty interaction between both networkmanager and wicd (on old system) and the wireless driver; often it's the wireless driver itself. Settings loaded into the card aren't changed on a warm reboot. A cold boot (or one reboot thereafter) should solve this. I say it's networkmanager's and linux's problem -- not ours to solve, just to note and pass upstream.

B0.41 32-bit in VB VM:

Auto install OK. Manual with lilo OK. Agree with roarde that his bitmap looks better. :)

Both installs would predictably stop responding to mouse clicks at the login screen if clicking on the different option buttons and cancel the resulting dialog a few times. Pressing (virtual) power button results in clean shutdown. It also happened once while at the desktop, the top menu and bottom launcher stopped responding, but right-clicking on the desktop brought up the menu.

It's subjective, but boot process just seems slow.

Maybe if it used all cores, it would do better. Or, maybe it's deliberate so we get more time to enjoy the boot splash?  :D

B0-41 64-bit

Expecting a new install of BO-42 I run vasm-legacy autodetect hardware
knowing very well it might again destroy the box. Sure enough it coud not detect
sound card as well as network. When done and I rebooted, as before
the box was destroyed. No more keyboard, no more mouse, no more
Internet connection, no more sound, no more.......

I think I reported this happening back on B0-2*. Any chance this serious
flaw might eventually be corrected?

Why do you feel the need to run vasm-legacy about all its good for now is to add new users the rest I would avoid. It is old code that is deprecated and really does not apply less your adding a user. We are working on a replacement but not there yet.

Yes, indeed all the hardware runs now out of the box on first boot. It did
not on earlier versions and installs not with DVD. No there is no need to
run vasm-legacy for me. Just did not know it should not be used any longer.

BTW I prefer now DVD install since on a +RW disk it takes less than 3 minutes
to burn the iso file and installation goes just smooth which is not always
the case with USB stick install or vinstall-iso-ng. Therefore as for me no
more restrictions as to iso file size.

Keep up the good work. :D

Alienbobs multilib is 256 megs for the things that are recompiled.
If a package request is made for 64 it and then another dep needs
to be recompiled how is that going to be done? This will take the i

Honestly? I think we're creating more headaches and work by trying to keep things to under 700MB for an installation CD. While it's been nice to have that nice quick download (for most of us anyway), I think it may be unrealistic to keep to the "one CD" ethos.

FWIW, I installed alien's multilib packages for slackware 13.37 on VL7 a while back and they worked. I needed them for running 32 bit windows apps on our wine packages, but also to even compile wine from source, something I do often, to keep to the wine bleeding edge, so to speak...  ;D

IMHO, they at least need to be made available in the repo.

I have double check the VL 7.1 64bit gcc and glibc packages size with alienbob's 14.0 multilib gcc and glibc and notice there is not much size differences...
You just need to install/upgrade the alienbob's multilib version of gcc and glibc packages to be multilib enabled. The rest is just to get the right 32bit library to run your 32bit-only applications like google-earth and sopcast and that is optional...
My suggestion is just to make the 64bit OS multilib enabled as default...it will be a easy for packagers to build 32bit-only applications to work out of the box on 64bit OS

http://alien.slackbook.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=slackware:multilib

I'm a +1 on multilib also a +1 on going to DVD size specially on the 64bit version. 


What I'd still have question on is ...
 How much if anything would have to be recompiled that is in the repo to work with multilib.  I'm assuming that it would not be much, just the things like Sopcast which need this to work anyways.

 Hata_ph, can you think of any reason why multilib can't just be added to the repo as a meta package that is pulled when the user requests "Sopcast" or another 32bit only application.  If it works like any dependency then it can be introduced pretty seamlessly to the repo and would not have to involve the iso or it's size at all.

 Provided of course that no existing packages have to be recompiled to suite. (Which I'm thinking would not be the case.)

 

To me it does not matter if it is repo only or built into the release iso.
Title: Re: new release vl7.1-b0.20 needs testing
Post by: hata_ph on August 09, 2013, 06:00:47 pm
As far as I know you just need the multilib version of gcc and glibc to be multilib enabled. The others 32bit library is only needed to run the 32bit applications like sopcast.
It is possible to create a multilib repo for all the multilib packages but if doing so why not just make multilib gcc and glibc come as default in 7.1? Since 7.1 is still in beta and everyone can test it out.

Another problem is to compile the multilib gcc and glibc packages. After reading alienbob's guide (http://slackware.com/~alien/multilib/source/), it seem the process is doable but is a bit complicated. We can use alienbob's precompile gcc and glibc packages but I notice 7.1 come with a newer version gcc and glibc compare to alienbob's. Either use alienbob's packages (which is the easier way) or compile it own multilib gcc and glibc packages.

I have tested alienbob's multilib gcc and glibc packages on VL 7.0 and it is working fine. I have create a multilib repo (http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/VL64-7.0/multilib/) too. Anyone can try it on their VL 7.0 64bit. So far I just tested on sopcast which is a 32bit applications. Just upgrade the multilib gcc and glibc from that repo, install the cxxlibs-compact32 packages from the multilib repo too and install sopcast packages from the untested repo.

Post by: Joe1962 on August 11, 2013, 10:21:48 am
One more issue, with multilib installed, you can have problems when trying to "make" some 64bit-buildable applications. The build process seems to find the 32bit libs instead of the 64bit ones. To fix this, I am using these 2 lines in the bash profile:

Code: [Select]
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/lib64:/usr/lib64:/usr/local/lib64"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/lib64/pkgconfig:/usr/lib64/pkgconfig"

Of course, when building a 32bit app, you would first run alien's script: /etc/profile.d/32dev.sh

Currently testing b-0.42. I'm afraid I don't particularly like it. She seems to be getting rather fat. My 7.0 SOHO uses around 100 MB in TUI mode, this one uses over 150 MB right after booting (as reported by 'free' and 'top'). A dramatic increase if you ask me. Especially if you take into account the fact that the SOHO install was running both CUPS and Samba deamon while 7.1 beta was not. Clearly there is SOMETHING eating a lot more resources than the previous release. 150 MB just to log in to a console is unacceptable IMO.

Also, the first virtual terminal (or whatever it's called, you know, the one under "ctrl+alt+F1") does accept keyboard input, it just doesn't show any characters. A fun challenge if you feel like it  ;D, kind of annoying otherwise.

Yes, I am. I don't see any reason why 'newer, more modern' is a valid excuse for 'a lot more resource hungry when not doing anything yet'. Like Roarde, I am pretty interested to find out what it does MORE than my old SOHO install besides being newer and more modern. As far as I can tell, I get pretty much the same functionality in both of them when starting in runlevel 2, except that my old install does more (run samba and cups) with less resources (actually, I usually have it run mysqld too, in which case it STILL uses less than 120 MB of RAM) . Doesn't mean there's nothing more happening, I just haven't found it yet. Only real difference I found at first was the animated bootscreen, which I quickly got rid of.  

Remember when VL was about 'lightweight'? When we tried to target older hardware? That was the power of VL IMO, and the main reason for me to try VL in the first place . There was a clear target audience. I don't need fancy animated bootscreens (though I must admit it looked impressive) if that's gonna make the OS harder to use. All I want for my OS is to run my programs without getting in the way.

This latest version is getting in the way too much for me to properly use for the purpose I had intended for it (it needs 250 MB just to get to Fluxbox, whereas the current SOHO version does it with 187 MB with mysql running). That's OK, I don't HAVE to use (the latest) VL for that purpose. I just think it's a pity that providing a lightweight base no longer seems to be a core value. I used to always be able to use the latest VL for pretty much everything, and I'm  :'( to see that go.

There comes a time when old becomes ancient and unsupportable. Wanting a distro to support 10 year old systems that can't be upgraded is silly.  I fully support keeping things lightweight, but to expect to be able to run the latest and greatest OS on something that would have been otherwise retired ages ago is unfair to the developers. If you have to quibble about 50MB in resource usage, it's time to retire the system.
Title: Re: new release vl7.1-b0.20 needs testing
Post by: rbistolfi on August 13, 2013, 06:00:41 am
The concern about memory usage is valid. I think its about changes in the X stack. Many components have been deprecated and new ones have been introduced. The changes are, in general, at the API level. That means that allegued improvements are for Desktop Environment implementors.  User should expect better stability, faster fixes (with better APIs programmers can focus in fixing things that matters.) If this actually happens, idk. We have seen new APIs for user session handling (consolekit), IPC (dbus and friends), resource and power management (udisk). These components are in some cases optional, if you make the right decissions (like using a window manager that not depends on them.)
In a reflexive tone, I ranted about this a lot (remember HAL?), maybe its time to do our research and decide if we want to avoid them and how. In principle, it is doable because I did it for years by using an alternative window manager, mounting my disks when I need them, picking apps that do not use dbus, etc.
In mobile devices its harder, because networking applets depend on dbus, power mangement requires extra daemons, etc.
A sidenote. Keep in mind that estimating RAM usage is hard and most applications report just a close number. Also, RAM usage is affected by many components, so we do need to do empiric research to know whats exactly going on.

you could always add swap file, configure it into proper size   with your old laptop and my singleboard computer ...thus to bang your system without  add more physical ram.....

by the way what's your  actual hardwares, mb, ram cpu now, if your cpu can support 64 bit computng,then with extra 50M or 100M vl7.1 can run better .... if your cpu doesn't support 64 bit computing, then it's another story....

now i think you'd test your hardwares of your 2 pc under knoppix 7.2.0 cd or dvd, you can boot it with unetbootin usb flash  pendrive....when booting chose 64bit knoppix in menu,  check whethr your hardware working properly or not... if it's running under 64 bit knoppix, then  same vl7.1 64bit, vl7.1  64 bit 're newer thAN KNOPPIX 7.2

Alright looks like I got some apologizing to do. I got me a clean install of VL 7 STD and SOHO, and one of VL7.1 STD B0.42, and these are the different outputs of 'free' right after booting to commandline interface:

7.1 Std
Code: [Select]
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:        505480     159240     346240          0       9348     102672

-/+ buffers/cache:      42352     464152

7 Std

Swap:      1022972          0    1022972

So, while it is true that 7.1 standard uses a lot more memory, most of it is cached and should therefore not be such a big deal (so I've always been told, my knowledge of the inner workings of Linux doesn't reach that far). The reason why I noticed though, is that I program JAVA in Netbeans, and it complains when memory is too low to compile. This happens quite often in 7.1 standard, more often than in SOHO. Apparently, Netbeans or whatever program it calls (javac?) does not think the cached memory is no big deal. Perhaps this is a problem in Netbeans or javac that needs addressing. I just don't know.

The memory usage in Linux has been growing for years.

I stopped trying to run Linux on systems with less than 1 Gig
of RAM about four years ago. The swapping just from browser
usage was painful at best.

Funny how most of the browser improvements are to display
ads.

Programs and OS's are growing as fast if not faster than the
available hardware. That cycle should be broken. I am not sure
if that is possible.

If I choose open with the default geeqie then the window closes and the image opens in geeqie and is saved in temp. it can be then moved from the menu to the home directory.

Just adding I guess. I have a desktop folder on the desktop which contains the trashcan and help icons. deleted it and still have a trash can so guess I did not need that. all the hardware seems to be out of the box. the floppy is readable as are the other two partitions, although if I open a folder to look inside it takes much longer to eject the volume. there is an error that it is being used. the wireless works and I am posting with it. guess I mentioned that already. I do not use pidgin so guess that is the desktop will try the applications

Well the menu is looking good, the issue I seem to be having is with text, not sure if it is a font issue or bad install but it is a beta so thought I would post it. I get a mixed bag on reopens sometimes the text I typed, sometimes symbols and little boxs, sometimes both. well I made an attempt, later

just an idea

one would have to move the auto generated removable drive icons to the bottom. which would auto open looking similar to the photo. I moved the help to the home directory and added folders that most would find use for I did not have to change the wallpaper was just testing the feature.

The text issue seems to be with leafpad, abiword seems to save ok so far..you can see the result of opening a saved text file in the photo

http://files.myopera.com/dsl-o/albums/550557/422.png (http://files.myopera.com/dsl-o/albums/550557/422.png)

If I insert a usb thumb drive, an icon appears on the desktop and touching it shows the drive is not mounted. If I double click it, the file manager opens and shows the content. If I right click the drive and click eject the icon is removed and the file manager returns to the home directory.

If the file manager is open and I insert the usb stick then the drive is auto maounted and a new instance of the file manager opens and displayes the content. If I then rightclick and click eject, the icon is removed and the second instance returns to the default home directory.

I used another newer drive with the same result. although when it is ejected I get an error that the drive is busy for some reason but gives an option to unmount anyway which then gives the same result.

if these are not bugs then perhaps I should try another install?

This combination of the bars and reposition of icons looks more modern and refreshing to me

http://files.myopera.com/dsl-o/albums/550557/v71.png (http://files.myopera.com/dsl-o/albums/550557/v71.png)

Basic settings are easy to find, like wallpaper and screensaver, etc

http://files.myopera.com/dsl-o/albums/550557/v72.png (http://files.myopera.com/dsl-o/albums/550557/v72.png)

Desktops and open apps with one click

http://files.myopera.com/dsl-o/albums/550557/v73.png (http://files.myopera.com/dsl-o/albums/550557/v73.png)

If some complain that the classic windows 95 start button is missing tell them it is not windows but if they put the cursor to the bottom of the screen a vintage task bar will appear and magically they will be in love

This second install is as glitchy but for what it may be worth.

I noticed the first and this time that the animated splash has what looks like four red dead pixels in a square just left above the v and a dashed like line of the same on the horizon line on the right of the logo. this appears nowhere else in this or other installed systems or when I use the monitor on the netbook. the resolution is 1280 x 1024.

same error prior to login ( can't find png?)

same issue with the usb auto mounts. it works the first time and then as previously described.

another issue is the mouse over on check boxs. if I open ie /settings/removable drives and media there are no boxs checked, but if I move the mouse over the area of the check boxs checks magically appear in the appropriate mount and browse removable devices area. if I swipe again sometimes they dissapear but sometimes not. I moved the mouse out of the dialog with the boxs checked but it changed nothing.

This is likely all useless information, possibly a bad download.sorry, will stop posting on this. :)

Bonjour!overthere,

you should  make test install of latest beta 42.iso 64 bit version...
after install, pls.  install the  latest kernel 3.10.8  then boot into 3.10.8.... check whether  the glitches  appear or not.....

My desire really was to see a more refined desktop for vector standard and attempted to display what could be an alternative implementation of the default. with understanding this is beta and may have issues, but now would be the time if any.

vector standard has out grown my old 32 bit systems and more power to you, I like Vector. I am simply an end user, with an attitude I guess, and this is likely not the place.

that's really too antique hardwares, in london flea market should only cost 10  quit.
especially intel cpu, nothing more can be tweaked from, no possible to overclock at all. plus buggy nforce  vga cards...
if it's  amd k6-2 series, or 3dlab vga chipsets, then you've plenty of room to tweak  a bit....

NO NEED TO BURN A CD TO INSATLL, THAT  TAKES TOO LONG TIME....BETTER YOU BOOT  YOUR LAPTOP FROM KNOPPIX  7.2.0 CD OR  DVD, THEN LAUNCH YOUR VECTOR INSTALL FROM THERE  WITH VL7.1 ISO IMAGE DIRECTLY.

on intel pentuim III, not possible to install 64 bit vl7.1..
you  will miss to experience the charm of 64bit computing...
which is faster under most circumstances and as an added bonus also inherently more secure due to the nature of Address space layout randomization (ASLR) in combination with Position-independent code (PIC) and the NX Bit which is not available in the stock i686 kernel due to disabled PAE. If your computer is running 4 GB or more of usable RAM, 64-bit should be strongly considered as any additional RAM cannot be allocated by a 32-bit OS

since you've got big hard disk, you should try adding swap file at size of 64G, it could boost pc performances a bit plus overclocking...
but dell is crap yankee  IT salves designed machine, OEM manufactured  in cina amoi city.... the capacitors on dell 're fake, you'd better change all capacitor on dell machine asap.... if you 're poor student or unemployed for ages, better buy the capacitors from your local electronic spareparts whole sale  market, then soldering by yourself  replacing all capacitors on dell....

you should test it by adding 64G swap file to your PCs,runing java, photo video processing, 3D design,copy and transfer large files in gb size ....... see the differences by yourself.
of course overclocking is not for your simpletons living in uk.no need liquid cooled at all for overclocking, just go to BIOS setting of your MB, chose right multiplifier plus FSB frequencies for your cpu.very simple to do..
you can always  pop into your local indian south asian run eletrical repair shop for soldering jobs at 5 quit replacing capacitors.....or you can go dell HP official service centre being charged for 50-100 euro for replacing capacitors.

reboot into vl7.1 beta 43 , 64bit,going to xfce4 desktop smoothly.....now alsa can work with exaile playing mp3, but alsa still doesn't work under umplayer gmplayer plus skype and other VOIP tools.playing shoutcast radio streams in several tabs of firefox or opera simultaneously,voice can be mixed......
but chat with skype with  radio stream simultaneously  still not possible.
additionally, wayland  wasn't installed by default, then umplayer gmplayer won't work with sound and video initially, must  go gslapt , install wayland  pkg, then media player would run normally....

you should try vl beta 44 now.

under beta 44 , halt still doesn't function properly due to KERNEL 'S MODULES MISSING FOR APM.

Did some trash picking and ended up with enough parts to put together a different testing machine:
AMD Athlon XP 32-bit 2900+ (2 GHz).
2GB DDR-2 400
Via K8 mobo
nVidia GF 5200 FX

The hardware is old and I'm not sure if it's 100%, so won't complain about issues that could be hardware related.

Installed B0.44, Fulliautomatix, and found that it works very well: Boot splash on first reboot, direct rendering, powers down and things are in pretty good shape. Networking tests good and multimedia files play.

Only thing worth mentioning is that on a 40 GB HDD it left 1.8 GB of space unallocated, at the end of the drive, after the main ext3 partition and the swap.

The hardware is old and I'm not sure if it's 100%, so won't complain about issues that could be hardware related.

Installed B0.44, Fulliautomatix, and found that it works very well: Boot splash on first reboot, direct rendering, powers down and things are in pretty good shape. Networking tests good and multimedia files play.

Only thing worth mentioning is that on a 40 GB HDD it left 1.8 GB of space unallocated, at the end of the drive, after the main ext3 partition and the swap.

 as you've got via K8  mobo, you'd better update BIOS
 to its  latest(can support amd 64 bit cpu dualcore as well), PICK ANOTHER  AMD 64 BIT  CPU  IN YOUR NEXT TRASH PICKING, THEN YOU TEST VL7.1 64 BIT,ACHIEV HIGHER PERFORMANCE....
SELL UR AMD Athlon XP 32-bit 2900+ (2 GHz) OVER EBAY OR GIVE AWAY FREE TO VECTOR COMMUNITY MEMEBERS  WHO'S IN REAL NEED.

you should chose install advanced option, then you can fdisk, set  partitions as xfs or ext4 plus swap..."left 1.8 GB of space unallocated" should be for  swap  partition.

on your test PC, can poweroff or halt commands swtch off PC fully now?

B0-44 64bit, DVD TUI installation.

TUI Installer now  found my SATA drive. Smooth installation and booting, posting from it.

Umplayer plays DVD w/o hassling.   ;D  ;D  ;D

Claws-mail still crashes on Configuration>Preferences for Current Account >OK >Crash.  :'(

Yes, this one works, from menu or command line. But, as they say: your mileage may vary.  ;D

Claws-mail crashes when clicking Configuration>Preferences for current account>OK.....Crash.

However, if I first click Configuration>Edit accounts>Edit>OK> close and then click as on first line of post
there is no more crash. In this case after OK it goes back to Edit accounts window.

I have use claws-mail for quite some time in several distros including VL and never had such a crash.

I'm posting from the latest beta of Vector 7.1 32-bit (0.44), which I downloaded and installed today, and I must say I'm impressed; it looks good and is working very well, and is very easy to set up now with the graphical installer.

Thanks to all the developers for all your hard work.

New claws-mail building at this time.  New build is an update to the latest version along with the addition of several plugins.

It should be in the untested repo soon

Build LINK = http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/buildbot/builders/claws-mail/builds/5

It should be in the untested repo soon

Installed it. Now Configuration>Preferences for current account>OK hangs claws-mail.  After 1 minute it closes on its own.

Here is some output when started from terminal after clicking OK:
Code: [Select]

Claws Mail is already running on display .

I then installed in /usr/local/ the version of claws-mail-9.2 I am using in my present working box flawlessly.
The identical problem turns out in VL as with the newly installed one.

To mention yet, crash or hang does not happen when Apply is pressed
and no difference in fluxbox or awful.

this is bo44 32 bit.iso

smooth install via gui advanced, reboot shows three screens prior to boot splash and one prior to login screen.

logins appear fine, logout and shut downs , user and root ok

same app issues as already posted..screenshot from bar, leafpad saves,

 later.. yes, I know, just a look.

I am going to copy paste from leafpad and add a pic of what happens if I save a text file and copy paste it to another first and save that as well.

http://files.myopera.com/dsl-o/albums/550557/7144c.png

no issue to copy this type here but saves not so much

EDIT: added gedit and it works fine, played dvd full with umplayer.

 looking good :)

wigums the files are gtk2 and located in /usr/share/themes. the files could be edited if you are versed in color numbering but several sites offer downloadable themes. xfce-look and gnome-look.orgs for example, it would be easier to download formats that you can simply place in the folder or unzip and copy. If I find any good ones I will post a link in the lounge.

would like to see the trash applet for the bar and gltext screen saver which is a date and time saver for 7.1. the current bata does not include but previous bata had saver and 7.0 has trash.

a functional darker theme would also be nice, I like the london smoke from xfce-look.org

bata 44 is looking good, desktop folder is still on the default desktop, apps are not yet configured, I still have the leafpad issue but gedit seems to have pasified me.

curious about why I see screens prior to splash..is blank screen not possible in these early stages.

All in good time, I understand, just observations while playing with the bata to see how it works so far.

For a quick workaround until a fix filters down from kernel.org, you can add this to the end of rc.local:

echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/online

Well,  I finally decided to give the latest 7.1 version (Sept 2 or 4, ver 44, I think) a try, on my backup laptop, a lenovo N586.

It had 7.0 on it, with the hard drive divided into three partitions, a swap, / and /home.  So I didn't use automatic.  Rather I installed 7.1 in /.  It installed just fine and recognized all the files on my home drive.  The installer is very easy to use.

A couple of comments.

I think that the user's attention following first install should somehow or another be directed to a page which explains how to add sound and configure the wireless card. The wired connection worked just fine but I occasionally need wireless.  I have no sound and probably have to download some drivers.  I see no sound icon and when I click on panel, there is no default sound icon. 

And though I note that the touchpad seems to work a lot better than in 7.0, I think the user's attention should also be directed to ways of turning off (and on) the touchpad. 

I no longer have a "suspend" option when logging out.  I use suspend constantly on my main (Samsung) laptop, where, in 7.0, it works great.

For some reason youtube videos on firefox go blank (snowy screen) a few seconds after they start.  Says "an error occurred."  I tried to load chromium from slackbuilds.org, but it didn't work. I think I will need google chromium. 

Finally, though lyx is in the repositories, it needs texlive or at least tetex.  7.0 repository only  has tetex, I believe, so I will have to do in 7.1 as I did in 7.0 and download texlive from the website. 

All in all 7.1 seems very stable.  I gather it uses 64 rather than 32 whatever programs, so I will have a bit of a learning curve there.

thats a known kernel bug.

I guess I could have phrased this better.  I meant known to us.  Several of us have been seeing that for a while on our installs.  Seems related to hotplugging from what I can gather from googling "CPU0 is now offline", and the reports of people seeing that date back quite a while
