You may have seen the 32-bit 7.0 screenshots.  That should work on your CPU, but bare in mind the software is quite outdated at this point.

7.1 and 7.2 have similar software, but updated to their latest versions (in the case of 7.2).  The default desktop configuration has changed since then, but you should be able to configure your desktop the way you want it to look after installation quite easily

This link should work. Thanks.

In a number of screenshots around the web, I have seen a VectorLinux user interface which looks like MacOSX. Which installation disc installs this version?

Also would that version of VL work well with a Pentium 4 computer with 1GB of RAM?

If you can get me a link to the driver download I can script the build process for you.

I just did a clean install, since I tried a few other things which did not work.

Without doing anything to the fresh install, I ran the command you mentioned. This was the result:
/var/log/packages/kernel-headers-3.18.16-x86_64-1vl71:usr/include/linux/version.h
Note: this was on a fresh install.

However, previously I am sure that the NVidia error message complained that the "version.h" file could not be found in a directory:
/lib/modules/3.18.16/build/include/linux/version.h

What would you recommend that I do next?

EDIT: I know that I need to install some packages, but it would reassure me if I had some explicit instructions to follow. ;)

(also, thanks for help so far)

I did a
Code: [Select]
grep -R linux/version.h /var/log/packages/ on a 7.1 install and this is the results I got

Code: [Select]
/var/log/packages/kernel-headers-3.18.16-x86_64-1vl71:usr/include/linux/version.h
/var/log/packages/kernel-src-3.18.26-x86_64-1vl71:usr/src/linux-3.18.26/usr/include/linux/version.h
/var/log/packages/kernel-src-3.18.26-x86_64-1vl71:usr/src/linux-3.18.26/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h
/var/log/packages/kernel-headers-3.18.26-x86_64-1vl71:usr/include/linux/version.h
So, your kernel-headers and kernel-src should match the running kernel

That is confirmed to be my current kernel I'm afraid.

The card is from 1999 and the 2011 driver was the last one NVidia published. It seems that the missing "version.h" file is stored in a different folder in later kernels, so the 2011 NVidia binary is not compatible anymore. That is a real shame as VL light looks like a sweet OS.

When I use the old open-source "nv" driver, there are no artefacts, and I don't need 3d acceleration anyway, so this might be my best option. Please can someone suggest the best way to enable this driver and set the correct screen resolution in VL 7.1 light?

Does that match your running kernel? (check the output of "uname -a")
