We are proud to announce B3 of VectorLinux Standard is released.
The default desktop is the latest XFCE. It is packed with everything you have come to expect from VectorLinux.
There are a few installer fixes, cups fixes and theme fixes since the last Beta Iso.

Installed from DVD. All went smooth. Passwords are visible when entering. Could it be changed to *****?
May be on choice?

Otherwise claws-mail still hangs.

Printers are still not detected. Entered device URI manually in system-printers-config.

Pita,
can you try mv the usblp driver "mv /lib/modules/3.10.28/kernel/drivers/usb/class/usblp.ko /root"
then reboot and see if cups will work for you?

B3-64 loaded fine on a year old lenovo ideapad N586.  That is saying something:  GUI Debian won't load at all on it (screen is unreadable) and it doesn't much like salix, though salix will eventually load after a lot of udev errors. I installed tetex with no problem and am currently downloading texlive from slackbuilds, a 4 hour process.  Hope that works.  I will then try yate and if both texlive and yate work, two of my major concerns will be satisfactorily handled.

Sorry, it does not.  :'(. Printers are still not detected.

I really don't understand why cups will not work in only VL with my desktop PC.  ???
To repeat, no such problem with slackware-14.1, salix, slackel, knoppix, tails, even TCL, mint, crunchbag.

If I install cups-1.4.6 my printers are detected and printing with VL as I have reported. I actually don't mind doing that.  ;)

Let me know if I can help showing "what" in slackware-14.1 makes cups click and what might be missing in VL.

I tried texlive from the untested repository and it loads fine and shows as installed in gslapt, but it doesn't work.  The file is too small.  Texlive is a 4 hour download on my system and texlive from untested is an 18 minute download.  The untested version does not include the various classes, such as article, letter, etc.  I think the shortness of the download dooms it from the start.   However for what its worth, here are the errors shown on install:

I find the hang bug in claws-mail only in VL and not in other Linux distros.
Therefore, is it possible that the bug's origin is embedded in VL?

Yes but without any hints from the claws-mail developers it will be hard to find the root cause as I do not know what cause the problem...
Title: Re: VL 7.1 STD B3 ready for testing
Post by: overthere on February 06, 2014, 05:36:14 am
observation

The claws mail hang appears to be associated with the edit accounts dialog not opening prior to account preferances.

If you click configuration/ preferances for current account, it opens the account preferances, but clicking apply/ok causes hang.

if you click configuration/ preferances but then cancel then you see the edit accounts dialog you can then choose edit and the accounts preferances can be applied and ok takes you back to edit accounts.

if rather you click configuration then edit accounts you can click edit for account preferances and edit the account.

note that clicking configuration new account opens the edit accounts dialog prior to the new account preferances

it is only when you open account preferances via configuration/ preferances for current account and click apply/ok, the item should be removed or grayed out until fixed.

as I do not see the means to do this edit in a config file I would suggest replacing the application with sylpheed or thunderbird. sylpheed is the lighter of the two and would work best for low end users but could be made available in the repository if thunderbird is chosen.

then again perhaps I am way off the mark, I am not very clever

We went this way once, back in VL 5.0 or 5.1 IIRC. I was the one who proposed the idea, following Puppy's logic and taking into account VL's niche. I have been a SeaMonkey user since it before 1.0, and a Mozilla Suite user before that. It really does work faster and with lower resource use than Firefox and Thunderbird (or even when compared to just Firefox, in my experience). However, there were a lot of "protests" from users who like to follow the "trends" (at least that's the way I see it, sorry if that opinion offends anyone...).

I stand corrected.  Texlive from untested does work and works well.  In attempting to respond to your question, I went through the drill so I could explain it to you and realized that I had not deleted tetex.  Tetex, which is in the regular repositories, apparently must be deleted before lyx, on reconfiguring (Tools>reconfigure) will recognize texlive.  I am not sure, but I think that tetex must be loaded when texlive is installed and then removed after texlive is installed and before reconfiguring lyx.

I have another machine I plan on loading lyx on and will pay more attention to detail then.

Anyway, I apologize for the error.  Texlive in untested works just fine.

Also, for what its worth, I downloaded lyx 2.07 from the untested repositories, and it seems to work fine too.  

Finally, before installing texlive, I installed clisp from untested.  Not sure whether that step was necessary or not.

Now, on to yate.

Yate doesn't work. 

I downloaded and installed yate from slackbuilds.org.  Seems to install fine but, as with the case of late with yate in 7.0, yate won't run.  The icon shows up in menu under internet. But no gui  (See below).  I have no clue why this is happening.  Don't know if its VL or yate.  Yate worked fine on 7.0 until a couple of months ago.  The yate forum has been unable to help.  I am forced to use linphone, a clearly inferior voip client. I would be happy to pay someone a reasonable fee to get yate working in VL as I am constantly using voip.

Thanks overthere.  I have yate-qt4 installed on my samsung 7.0 work machine and that gives a "segmentation fault."  However, I don't know if I will get the same error on the lenovo running 64 B3. I will try that when I get home tonight. I sure hope that fixes the problem.    And thanks much for the suggestion.

EDIT:

Ok...bad luck here even with yate-5.0.0 will give me segmentation fault...but good news is someone from SW 14.1 also having the same problem...so might want to see what is the response from yate's developers...

Good luck getting anything out of the folks on the yate forum. 

BTW, I tried yate-qt4 on the lenovo and got the expected segmentation fault.  I know 1) yate worked fine on VL 7.0 until a couple of month s ago, 2) I did not modify yate or VL 7 (except I added other programs to VL 7) 3) yate stopped running after, I believe, I updated firefox and 4) yate runs fine on my old dell 630 laptop running debian.

I assume you downgraded firefox as test. the segmentation fault seems to be a slackware issue and appears vector rules again with a window of usage, if firefox (added app) solves then you have something to work with.

sounds like lilo is using the wrong kernel to boot the new install.

VL-7.1 B3 32 bit


1)  Tried "install" rather than clicking enter from cd with same results, two b3 sro and hang at installing lilo but boots from cd with linux root=/dev/sda2 ro which is fine as long as when installed to sda1 to mbr it boots with the power button, will try that

2)  Disk Utility windows do not resize correctly on 1280x1024

clicking hd increases right width past window and is not resizable

then clicking cd maintains this width but IS resizable to a centerpoint in disk area so text is still readable but no less.

full screen has no boundry and exceeds screen width

when 1280x1024 was popular 640x480 was obsolete perhaps I am again obsolete

the spec appears to have changed and perhaps this unit is no longer a valid low end testing ground.

You're right - it was 7.0's.  Thanks for reminding me.

Using LILO version 22.8 in VL6.0 after copying vmlinuz-3.10.28 to tamu and renaming as vmlinuz-71
Quote
Boot image:  /boot/tamu/vmlinuz-71
Fatal:  Setup length exceeds 31 maximum; kernel setup will overwrite boot loader
I don't want to use the distro I'm testing to be fooling with the boot loader on this machine - it only has 9 selections.

It may be a lost cause as 7.0 had too many problems to work on this machine which is why I'm still using 6.0 on it

StrayBit,
you will have to upgrade lilo there in order to boot the kernel from 7.1
I would like to see how 7.1 runs there if possible.

Thanks Uelsk8.  Booted into 7.1 from CD.  Ran liloconfig adding all 5 VLs and Slack14,1 as well as FreeDos and Win98. Rebooted - I like the display better than grub which I could hardly read.  Selected 7,1 - I like the wall paper though it will take me a while to get used to the different menu.  Later will see if I can change it to text.  If I can move the menu bar to the bottom of the screen, I believe you have a convert from 6.  Am going through gslapt.

If I didn't mention it earlier, this looks like a very good version.

retired1af:  Since the only dumb question is the one that isn't asked - how do I make that change?  I couldn't find anything in Settings Editor, Settings Manager, or by right-clicking>properties.

regarding liloconfig:  It allowed me to easily add the other installations but used vmlinuz->vmlinuz-3.10.28.  Manually copied the appropriate vmlinuz-xxxx, then created links (vmlinuz59, vmlinuz6, vmlinuz70 and sllinuz14), then edited lilo.conf to use these.  While editing, I also added "resume = /dev/sda2 " and entries to allow booting to tui.  Haven't checked these out yet.

Right Mouse click on the panel. Select Panel -> Add New Items.

Select Applications Menu.

Now that it's added to the bar, you can now move it to your desired location. Right mouse click on the button and select Properties to change the text and icon. :)

(Yeah, I hated the new menu, too.)

Thanks - that worked.  Now to get that panel to the bottom of the screen...

Oh! Yes!  I also added lba to lilo.conf

To move the panel.

Go to Panel Preferences and unlock the panel. Now comes the tricky part. You should be able to grab hold of the edge and drag it to the new location using shift-click. I warn you, it takes me about 5 minutes before I can finally find that tiny sweet spot and the mouse cursor changes indicating I'm in "move" mode. If there's an easier way, I'd love to hear it. (I like the bar at the top, rather than the bottom. LOL)

When you unlock the panels on xfce you will notice a handle on each end of the panel just click and drag where you like..there are generally two panels  but you can delete or add from the panel preferences

just a thought

Prior to VL light there was a need to offer a lighter WM on std but now that light has established itself it may offer an opportunity to remove alternatives from the std install making more time to polish xfce and making more space for libs or applications. alternatives for both could be available in the repository and packaged to appear on the session menu after install.

There is a value to that, especially as it fluxbox looks very "raw" and unpolished at the moment.

Test result, VL-7.1-STD-B3.2.iso written to USB stick using Unetbootin 565-3.
Install on real hardware; Intel G31 mobo, integrated video, E5200 CPU, 2G RAM.
BIOS sees USB stick as sda1 and HDD as sdb. Without USB stick, HDD becomes sda.

Automatic install went without any error messages.
1. Shut down, remove USB stick and restart: No boot.
2. Reboot with USB stick inserted, boot ok.
3. Start without USB stick and edit options,
    replace hd1 with hd0, and sdb with sda: boot ok.
    Ran update-grub and normal boots from there on.

Advanced install, chose LILO for boot loader.
1. Boot without USB stick, manually supplied boot option "root=/dev/sda ro" .. boot ok.
2. Edited first non-commented line of lilo.conf,
    changed boot = /dev/disk/by-id/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx to: boot = /dev/sda
    Ran lilo and normal boots from there on.

Copied samba-conf from VL6 and - wouldn't let me, as bruce, issue

service samba restart
just showed 4 failed.  Restarted (remembered previous should have been as root)  Thunar now shows Browse Network which is extremely slow.  (I have WinXP and Win7 currently running on other machines.)  Then I have to click it a second time to display the contents!

Also Thunar has a FREEDOS2012 which is not the same size as FreeDos.  The former is in /run/bruce/ and the latter is mounted by fstab in /mnt/FreeDos.

Another test on system mentioned two posts above. This time I wanted to try the text installer.
There was no "install" label, it was necessary to edit the file syslinux/syslinux.cfg and add the following lines:
Code: [Select]
label install
  kernel /isolinux/kernel/sata
  append initrd=/isolinux/init.lz  load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=0 2 rw root=/dev/ram

After that I could type install and press enter to continue. The text installer worked fine. I chose advanced, partitioned the drive with cfdisk and used LILO. All entry boxes and buttons stayed visible on the screen. The end result was the same as with the GUI installer.

Try reinstalling pycups.  The one packaged into beta 3.2 was bad.

Still having issues in getting the system to work with VPN properly on the first shot.

On bootup and login, starting VPN results in a locked desktop. Unable to start any program once the VPN has started. Disconnect the VPN, logout and log back in, everything works as it should.

It's almost as if something isn't getting loaded on the first boot.

I've attached an excerpt from syslog.

If Fluxbox is to remain it needs some work on the file manager..it does not show devices like cd/dvd, usb, partitions, or mount/unmounts

Also no icons in the fluxbox file manager

I added icons for the user by adding:  gtk-icon-theme-name="Faenza-Cupertino" to the .gtkrv-2.0.mine file

The menu also needs an update here is the one I have if it helps it needs feh if you want the change wallpaper and can toggle a screensaver as wallpaper but the off toggle sets what was the default wallpaper so again feh

B3.3 64 and 32 bit, using burned discs on two test machines: One 64-bit Intel Dual Core Pentium, and an old 32-bit P4.

On the 64-bit machine, both 32 and 64-bit displayed a choice of which source to install from, with two identical entries for the disc in the optical drive. On 32-bit box this did not appear.

After installing 32-bit on old P4, I got the default XFCE wallpaper (tried 3 times). Same disc on 64-bit machine gave me VL wallpaper.

On both machines, 32-bit had no volume control on panel. The entry for adding it is grayed out.

The entry for notification area and volume are gray out because they are already implemented and can only have one instance. the volume is on the auto hidden upper panel.

The dual install option from optical disc was also present in 32 bit for me as posted.

Already posted thunar icon fix and menu

have stock VL7.1 wmdrawerrc, can post if anyones interested

to get devices and trash in thunar added following to .fluxbox/startup:

# Start DBUS session bus

   eval `/usr/bin/dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session`

Hi everybody.  Can someone direct me to the latest beta, or is it the one at the start of this thread?   ???   I have been away testing other distros.  I just tried the latest Salix, and while good, it sucks compared to Vector in my humble opinion.  One thing I did learn over at there site was that they use Duck Duck Go as their default search engine.  Every time someone does a search, they get a small amount of revenue, kind of like Google.  I prefer Duck Duck Go as it doesn't track you like Google does.  Just a thought.

B3.8 32 and 64-bit.

 :)  Installed from USB stick on 4 computers so far, without any problems. One machine gave me some problems after install and messing around in that the grub selector screen would not respond to USB keyboard, but did fine with PS/2. This was not the case with two other boxes with usb kb, so I'll go back and look.

 :(  On a laptop where wifi worked with module wl in previous version, now I get a problem, both versions. Module wl will not load because "unspecified license taints kernel". I remember this issue with the drivers for a usb wifi stick a while back. I had to change the code to refer to GPL, and then it worked.

I personally detest Firefox.  It seems to hang on a regular basis.  How about Midori, like Salix uses.  I would also vote for Seamonkey as it seems faster and more reliable than FF.  Just my opinion.

Midori, Seamonkey, Opera and Netsurf are all available in the repository.  BTW, I also can't stand the Firefox upgrade treadmill.  I wish the LTS version was offered instead the way the various enterprise distros do.

Firefox ESR is available in Salix and is the default in Mageia.  I like it better than the latest version because it seems faster and doesn't freeze. :)

GnuTLS:
Just installed it, then thrashed it around a little bit running HexChat with SSL connection and Firefox with the HTTPS Everywhere plugin going. Everything works well, will let you know if that changes.

Security update has been done on 7.1
http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/buildbot/builders/openssl/builds/13

I don't know what kind of ramifications we can expect from upgrading openssl on 7.0.  It is currently at 0.9.8x there, so I wont touch it for now because I don't know if it will break other things

Somehow, I have a 7.0 with 1.0.0g, 18 Jan 2012.

Examining further, 1.0.0g and 1.0.0d are in extra. No idea why in extra.

But looking at vabs, no real idea how they got there. A scan of the SlackBuild did turn up a line that might patch later versions to report 0.9.8 to some software, not sure.

BTW: repo maintenance or slow scripts temporarily blocked upgrading on 7.1. If you tried prior to the "last edit" time of this post, try again. Seems to work now.
