Awesome!  Glad you worked it out.

As a suggestion, you may want to dump a copy of your /var/log/pkgtools somewhere.  It contains a log of what packages got installed.  This may help you in the future if you run into it.

That looks like a binary software distribution that was linked against older versions of libpng and zlib.  We ship newer versions of those libraries, so that renders your software unusable.  The 'solution' to this problem is nothing we can offer.  Downgrading the libraries will break other things in the system and leave you vulnerable to older security risks.  The only advise I can offer is to find an alternative office suite that works without expecting you to keep an older outdated system.

a lot of the menu selections were missing, because I was logged in as root.

Running the GUI as root is generally discouraged. We purposefully make root's interface somewhat unappealing.

But nothing is stopping you from clicking Start -> IceWM -> "Make Menu".   ;)

Nightflier, thanks for the info.  I installed the glamor-egl package yesterday, and up until just a little while ago, it didn't seem to do anything different, as far as the X system errors is concerned.. It's kinda funny, but today, I was just poking around using the command line to do various things- the integrated Broadcom B43 wireless card was not working, either, on this emachines notebook.  So I used wpa_supplicant to get it working, used lynx text-based browser to look around the Web, etc..  I say funny, because after hours of playing around and learning stuff on the command line, I ran vxconf again, just for grins.  Lo and behold, it actually got past the first part of the script, and brought me to the screen resolution section!

So I ran the rest of the vxconf setup and exited.  Running startx, the graphic display came up!  But as others have noted, a lot of the menu selections were missing, because I was logged in as root.  I rebooted the machine and logged in as a regular user.  Everything looks fine now.  I installed xombrero, which I'm using now for the VL forum. 

Apparently, it took a couple of reboots for the glamor-egl package to do its voodoo... thanks for the suggestion.  VL 7.2 RC2 LIGHT and icewm are running fine now on this emachines M6809.

I downloaded the file, when I  extract and open it, for example, et or wpp,  ./office6/et: /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0: version `PNG12_0' not found (required by /home/yaoasm/Downloads/wps/office6/libQtCore.so.4) and ./office6/et: /usr/lib/libz.so.1: version `ZLIB_1.2.9' not found (required by /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0)  happened.
How can I solve the proplems?

Doug, try installing "glamor-egl" and see if that makes a difference.

If slapt-get/gslapt doesn't do it, the packages are here:
64-bit: http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.2/x86_64/glamor-egl-0.6.0-x86_64-1vl72.txz
32-bit: http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.2/x86/glamor-egl-0.6.0-i586-1vl72.txz
