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.

Started by crum - Last post by overthere 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.

Advice or comment on using VL7.1 untested packages.  Also gslapt does not execute from menu but will from terminal,asked about that before.

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 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?

I'm kind of surprise that no one has responded to my question about upgrading v7.0.
I have another question, can we make slapt-get point to the RCx repositories to upgrade packages? If, so, how do we do it?
Would upgrading the packages from RCx repositories be OK?

I downloaded and installed vl7.0 last night on a laptop and updated the packages. I noticed that a lot of packages are out of day. Is 7.0 been updated? Am I missing something?

Thanks. I can't find anything in the menus that allows time change, but your fix solved my problem. I cleared my desktop of all icons, so moving icons isn't an issue now.

If you happen to find a stick of ram (DDR pc2100 @266mhz) to add to your d600 it will also improve performance, in addition to lxde. I think the max is two d400 has 1 gig and is rather snappy with fluxbox.
