As always, bug reports for 7.1 on the forum are OK, but developers can deal with them more easily if posted to
https://bitbucket.org/VLCore/vl71/issues
If you're signed on to a bitbucket account, your bitbucket ID will be used. If you don't have a bitbucket account, or wish not to use it, that's fine. Including your forum member name within the text would be a help; there may be a need to get more info about the problem.

"Vabs" has been integrated into the versions' own trees (like "vl71") for quite a while now. Posting OS issues into its tracker is obsolete. No one has had time to update the pointers, so that there will be confusion is a given.

So your original post when issue posting was asked about in another thread was correct, overthere.

I think opera is the most up to date for linux although I believe there is a newer version for debian. I think the last fire fox update was 28..or 29 you would likely find it in testing for 7.0. If you want to try the test build for Vl7.1 std I think it uses ff 33.1 you can download here for testing

http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.1/iso/VL-7.1-STD-RC3.1.iso

bug reports I believe go to bit bucket here

https://bitbucket.org/VLCore/vabs/issues

or you can post your experience in the developement forum

hope that helps

One more thing, the main reason I mentioned the updates is because the browsers are like SUPER way behind. How do I upgrade the package to a more recent package? FF and Opera.

Thanks for the info. I installed V7 standard.

No..adding RC repositories would be unwise to say the least. VL7.0 has been maintained and the most recent additions would be found in the untested repository..this is by default turned off in gslapt as it can be problematic when updating for obvious reasons. however it may help you to find some additional packages that are stable but have not yet been moved to standard repositories. you would toggle it in gslapt under edit preferences sources. and refresh the packages list. this should be unchecked and the list refreshed when finished and used with caution as the packages may be yet unstable and cause issue..in the forum new packages are posted for testing in package news and updates.
naturally there is a limit to the updatability of any system at which time a new build is required. the developers are actively working on the same and have released alpha, beta and rc1 to date. this is a completely new process and rebuild and as such is taking longer than any previous release. Although newer RC are being built they have not been posted for public testing thus I can only suggest patients.
What version of VL7.0 did you install? VLocity, Standard gold or Light?

Besides turning off PAE in kernel config, then rolling a new kernel; what else is needed or might be different when trying to use a pre-PAE processor with a distro and repos designed for 32-bit with PAE?

I'm assuming it's pretty much a kernel thing; actually, I have no clue.

re GSLAPT try your post here

http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=18537.0

If you are testing out VL7.1rc's it may be worth keeping the related testing repository in your source list as it will have the most up to date packages, however it is unwise to include testing in final releases ie 7.0 or 7.1 final as testing is the testing repository and packages considered stable are moved to default sources, you only need to update the sources list. you can toggle it to test available packages from testing, naturally caution is expected.
these are two different situations but worth note as suggested in the other post

Response as expected, I was just wondering, as far as gslapt I missed reply or it is lost.

using untested packages can cause issue at times as they are untested. which is why they are tested.  sometimes you may encounter issues related to you, your hardware or a rogue issue no one else can duplicate. this can be alienating thus use at your own risk. regarding gslapt, you were given an answer but failed to apply it or did not read it.

crum..you have already been given answer to your questions, if you want to test the new you have it, if you want to stick with the previous you have it. posting the obvious does not help anyone. what exactly is the problem.

No news! Seems as if after posting questions,answer sometimes is a new repository source,not in package news and updates which hasn't been updated since 2014.Information about new or updated has to be gotten from various forums provided by very good detectives and knowledgeable users.
