Hi all
Just installed Vector on my old 32bit laptop and had the same problem during install, that is hangs at setting password before install finishes. It seems my inherent laziness caused me to use the same password for user and root which seems to result in system complaints (not to mention security issues). Usied a different password for each and all is golden.

Hi all

Just installed standard version to Dell Mini-V 1.6GHz Atom with 2 Gb Ram.
The thing runs great for a low spec machine. Moving from Peppermint due to its extreme slowness and bloat (is slowness an actual word?)

I tried Vector back in about 2006 of 2007, I think it was version 3.* or 4.* with the bouncing cows screensaver. It all ran well enough but had some networking and secure shell issues I didn't have time to sort out.

It,s matured very well and I'm glad to be back.

Thank you for the link. I have an older LG L3, may be it will work on this device too.

Debian 8 on a galaxy s4 is interresting. Do you have a link to a website?

In my house windows 10 but also apple devices are only allowed via a seperate guest wifi network.

With static we mean that the response is not generated on the fly by a programming language. The most common way of doing a static website is to create HTML and serve them with a simple web server. This site is static: although they all look the same from a presentation perspective :D

Tested 7.2 beta 64bit in VirtualBox (5.0.24) this morning.
Feels stable.

Two things I don't like: development stuff like postgre and QT tools installed by default.
I don't think it belongs in a distro's base install.
Second Firefox as default browser, this is a personal thing, the current releases of Firefox use google servers to check the sites you visit. In my opinion this is a big privacy leak that's why I switched to Midori.

One bug I found, if you click on the picture in de xfce menu to edit your profile picture you will get an error.
Failed to edit profile. Failed to execute child process "mugshot" (No such file or directory)

Building your first website is an awesome experience! There are mostly two kinds of websites, static and dynamic. Static websites are made of content that doesn't change, its always the same. In dynamic websites, the request is processed by a programming language for creating a response, and the output can be different depending on anything you want.
For static websites, the common technology is the HTML markup language, CSS for the visual design, and you can use Javascript for some fancy features (animations, menues, image effects, etc).
For a dynamic website, you would also need a programming language, I would recommend Python.
A CMS (content management system) like Wordpress is a website of the second class, written in PHP. The easiest way to get up and running is using a hosted solution provided by a 3rd party, for example They take care of the website administration and you only care about the content. Customizing the looks of a wordpress site is well documented.
It is possible to install wordpress or other CMS yourself, it is challenging and requires system administration knowledge level. A challenge like this one would teach you a lot of tricks and the inners about Linux.
For each of the solutions I described, you will likely need to learn HTML and CSS. So I would start there. Using a hosted solution is probably the easiest. Finally, doing everything by yourself is the hardest, and as usual, the most rewarding.

HTH, Rodrigo

Hello Rodrigo,

Thanks a lot for your reply, it's really instructive. I have never seen a static website I think... Do you have a link that can show me what is it?
Thank you in advance :)
