Do you do web hosting for others? I am a linux only shop and am trying to set up a wordpress site. I am walking distance from your Bell St. offices.

Hi Folks,
I know it has been a long time since I've posted directly to the forum and I wanted to keep everyone up to date on a a server move we are doing at SQI. For those that don't know, SQI hosts the Vector Linux support site and forum and I've always had a fun time helping out! =)

The support VM for (ticketing, paid support, KnowledgeDex searching, etc) was successfully moved over. I still have the website and this forum to move over. Unfortunately, KnowledgeDex (the search used in the top right of these pages) will not include forum posts until the migration is complete, which should be within the next day. Until then, the search tab on the top left should work just fine for forum posts.

Once the migration is complete, I hope most will notice a significant performance boost. We here at SQI apologize for the inconvenience during the migration, and hope you will bear with us as we move services.

Choose "USER   manage the users on the system". On next screen,  "PASSROOT   Change root password".

When done, that brought you back to the USER ADMINISTRATION screen. Choose "DEL Delete some users". You probably want to delete the user "vl". When you're done, use "Cancel" to go back to USER ADMINISTRATION.

Now add at least one "primary regular" user.  "Real name" doesn't matter, though it might show up in irc or such. Accept the user ID offered -- nice if this one's 1000, but not necessary. Next screen is SET GROUPS: Accept the default groups, except move to the bottom of the list and add this particular user to the group "wheel". Then just say yes to prompts and enter a password (twice). Don't worry about 'file exists' errors popping up briefly.

Reboot isn't necessary here, but do so anyway just to see how it acts. Login as the regular user.

Still need help:
I logged in as instructed in the above note and got login incorrect, but then got login: root
This was followed by
you have mail
 you are working as root
Frequently used programs
Configuration  :  vasm
Package manager : slapt-get, pkg
Network tools : ifconfig, host, ping, nmap, iptables
File manager : mc (press F2 for useful menu)
Editor ; mcedit, nano, vi
Multimedia : alsamixer, play
Default X: startx
xmodmap: unable to open display ' '
vector: (square root sign)

And that is it.
Now where do I go? This is the only OS on this old IBM Thinkpad laptop.

Thanks for any help.

Try selecting "TUI" on the boot screen, then log in as "root", with a blank password (just hit enter). If that gets you access, you can manage users and passwords and fix other problems.

Back with my next problem. I did get VL Light installed, but it will not recognize my login or password. How can I fix this without reinstalling it?
