We need to hear from Vector.

Who controls the name "Vector Linux", and any resources allocated to it? This has been a constant headache ever since Robert had to stop participating on a real-time basis, and somewhat before that.

Practical issue: We need control unlocked for the two channels on Freenode. The administration there needs some kind of information from you and from Robert before they'll do this.

I also want to thank Robert for his contribution over the years. Every ship needs a Captain, to set the course and make decisions, a leader to present a vision and inspire the people involved.

What is left of the old VL is essentially a recognized name still in the top 100 of DW, a web domain and a static repo.

To continue the tradition, you would need a new Vec with a new vision of something unique, and new developers.

I am not available to fill any of those roles, but just can't help checking in on a regular basis.

I would be sorry to see it go, how many active developers do we have?  It its unique selling points have largely been superseded by other distros, a unified central configuration utility (VASM) was way ahead of everyone else, but now is universal.  Light weight, there are several out there....
I would go back to the suggestion maybe of going back to slackware based and adopting Salix style options?   I would like to thank Robert for his vision and hard work in bringing us one of the greatest distros we have ever had.  Kept me interested in Linux and enabled me to pass on tens of machines to disadvantaged members of the public.  I wish him well in all future endeavours.

VL has been the best distro for me...I wish Vec (Robert) the best and hope that he checks in every once-in-a-while. I would like for VL to continue but I'm not sure I'm too much help in making that happen.

Hello All:
As you all must know by now Robert (Vec7) decided he had had enough and did not want to continue with VL. I have renewed the site for another year to try to decide "what to do", I will leave this message open to any and all input of a path forward. I am not criticizing anyone however I was kept on the sidelines as to the ongoing tasks off VL. Your suggestions, criticisms and ideas are all welcome.
Regards
Darrell

 Yes it is silent ever since Robert (Vec 7) decided he had enough after 20 years. I nor anyone else has had a clear direction since then. The site has been renewed for another year. What to do ? do we need a Vec 7 to continue or ??

I think the dd command is on OSX by default. It's available for Windows too, just look around.

Hello,
Thank you very much for the quick answer.
Too bad, I don't have a working Linux system.
Greetings from Germany

Hi ext4,

You are probably not doing anything wrong. My recommendation is that you use a linux system and the dd command to create your USB stick. That is what was used during testing and is the most reliable method for VL.

Hello, everybody,

I'm new here and have a problem creating the USB Boot Stick.

I create the USB Boot Stick with RUFUS 3.6, the boot process aborts and the error message file "VL-7.2-STD-FINAL-LIVE" is not found.

With version VL-7.0 the live session works.

What am I doing wrong?

Sorry for my bad English.

Greetings
