Good feedback, thanks. You can easily get NetworkManager from repo. Remove wicd, then install NetworkManager and network-manager-applet, and edit your startup script to launch "nm-applet" instead of "wicd-client". Reason for the swich is that wicd is less complex, it does not insert itself as deeply into the system as NM does.

installed the 32 bit light b2.1
cups is better..just added the drivers this time, then added the printer.
 scan to pdf with added xsane and printed the pdf from viewer.
 typed and spell checked a note in abiword and printed..looks good so far.

noted the switch to wicd..liked the previous after fix but this seems to work.

The original post was regarding firefox dropping alsa, and on Vector linux 7.2 appears puse audio is included so firefox 52 should and does have sound.

I extracted firefox 52.0.2 from mozilla to /opt as nightflier posted, then added a link to open as user from fluxbox menu. or you could use an icon.

before opening firefox I deleted the ./mozilla folder from the home directory.

 I then opened firefox, created a link for netflix and signed in to netflix. it ask to apply drm for the site ( or you can toggle from preferences/content). widevine was installed.(a pop up said to try the site later as it was installing.

I then reopened the browser and signed into netflix and started watching a show.

deleting the ./mozilla folder from home solved the previous error on netflix that I was not using an official mozilla browser.

this is on vector linux light 32 bit without flash listed in the plugins. On acer one netbook with 1 gig ram. I was also able to watch youtube videos. I could benefit from a little more ram.

as flash may be required for some sites or users I suggest using the latest flash-plugin 25. I am not sure how to install it to firefox in this particular situation.

edit: actually all I did was install flash 25 with installpkg and now can watch video on sites that require flash.

thought I would update my findings...Sorry for going off topic.

Ping -c 3 works fine.  So it must be DNS.
I'm going to down load the latest ISO and start over.

What a startling developing revoltment!  There was no change to starting a php file.  AND I can't connect to the internet!  I can ping the router and I can access VL files from my laptop.

Since this should not be php related, I have some suggestions. Sounds like a DNS problem. Can you ping a public ip, like

You're right - there is a ton of information!
As I read this, mysql is enabled.  But why doesn't it work?
Am updating my apps seeing PHP7 is among them.  Will restart and try again.

What a startling developing revoltment!  There was no change to starting a php file.  AND I can't connect to the internet!  I can ping the router and I can access VL files from my laptop.

You can also use this to obtain detailed information about your php installation.

This will tell you if it's finding the php.ini file along with a metric crap ton of other information.

Gslapt informs me that I have php7 installed.  I removed mysql then installed it.  I find that I have to
