I saw the Gsplat GUI app but had no idea how to use. Is there a tutorial somewhere? 
I am trying to install Firefox and Anaconda.

Sorry for the stupid questions. I am not the best with computers but I am attempting to learn a bit of Linux and Python. Right now it is kind of like drinking from a fire hose.

Looks fairly straight forward.

Install the Composer using the instructions here:

Then, install phpMyAdmin using the instructions located here:

You'll need to ensure Git is installed first.

Can any one help me with this.  I haven't found it in Vector and the on-line pre-made ones are debian, ubantu and fedora.  I downloaded the package but the destuctions (er instructions) are greek to me.  They tell of using composer which has a .jasn extension.  I've never touched jason.  I have used gcc a few times.

The command line package manager in VL is named "slapt-get", and it is inspired by the debian apt tool. However, there is also the graphical utility "gslapt", which you will find on the system menu. The GUI app is the easiest one to use.

Is there a good how to video or something on installing programs on Vector Linux? I used the sudo apt-get install.

Hey folks unfortunately yesterday in the early am we were hacked. The damage was minimal and we were able to restore from a backup fairly quickly so most probably didnt notice. As a security precaution  I really urge all users of this forum to change their passwords as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience but these things happen and better safe than sorry.

I hadn't have the chance to try the kernel fix yet.
For the moment I installed Calligra which seems a nice office suite, the database works just fine and doesn't need java.
Just for curiosity, I tried Libre Office Data on my sister's laptop which is 64 bits and it didn't work. I installed Java from the Oracle web page and still it doesn't work.

32-bit: After adding "stack_guard_gap=1" to boot parameters, it works for me.

The easiest way to test is to manually do a one-time edit when the system starts. At the grub screen, press "e" to go to edit mode. Add "stack_guard_gap=1" after the "resume=/dev/xxx/", then press F10 to boot.

I don't know how that may affect security. This would be a work-around for individual users willing to dig into it. To add the boot parameter permanently, edit /etc/default/grub (as root), adding the string to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line, right after the resume entry. After that, you need to run command "grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg".
