Welcome to Vector.  I have been with it more or less since 5.8 or earlier.  In reading your posts, I suspect you will like it quite a lot.  Simply put, its more fun (and more work at first, as you are finding out).

Tried 3 times to install VL just wouldnt budge

I had trouble getting 7.1 RC1 to load via a unebootin-creaded usb stick, so I headed down to Best Buy, bought some CDs, burned the iso to one of them and it loaded fine from the CD.  I would try that before giving up and also, as you are not familiar with VL, I suspect your hunch to go with 7.0 is what you should go with..  Switching to final VL 7.1 when it finally arrives will be a pain, but, as you probably already know and in any event which has been noted, if you partition into 3 (swap, root and home) and don''t reformat /home, you won't have to reload your data and if, as also mentioned, you copy your config files, you can probably save some additional hassle.

There will be more programs in the repositories for 7.0.  

Good luck!

John


Thank you! Cant wait to get my hands in VL if I can ever get it to install lol.

In the car metaphor, VL/Slackware is like manual admission and ubuntu is automatic admission. Both drive you to the same destination, only the handling is different.

For easy upgrade in the future, create swap, / and /home partition separately.

The short answer is maby,

 they do NOT work on iOS-7.0 for mount/umount which is the purpose of the posting

they did appear to  work allowing mount and unmount of ios-4.2.1, I do not have 5x or 6x to try. but of no particular value without gtkpod or some other such app.

I would rather you build the newest LMD 1.1.6 and associates when you feel comfortable it is stable or worth your effort as it will also require gtkpod and will hopefully work with the current apple iphone models 4/5 with iOS-7.0

personally speaking I am content with the current downgraded set for the somewhat obsolete ios 4.2.1, but happy to try the new LMD 1.1.5 with gtkpod if you want to build it.

Does that make any sense?

well that really would depend on your knowledge of linux. you could just do a fresh reformat and install or you could upgrade everything. what ive been doing personally throughout the development of 7.1 (which i also do on all my slackware boxes) is keeping a seperate partition for /home which keeps all my reg user configs so there is no need to go through and customize xfce to my liking all over again, and then before i do a install of a new version i just copy any pertinant config files and so forth (my sshd.conf my ftp servers conf and so forth) from wherever they may be to my /home. that way when i reinstall i DO NOT format my /home partition and i can get my system back up with minimal fuss.

WELL when it comes to slackware... I know nothing.. Starting to dabble in it now I wanted something abit harder than the buntus / debian
So I wouldnt know how to upgrade from a RC to a full stock ready system.

with this downgrade I am able to mount iso 4.2.1, use gtkpod to create playlist and sync and unmount as root in terminal.

libplist 1.3
usbmuxd 1.0.7
ifuse 1.1.1
libimobiledevice 1.0.4
gtkpod 1.0.0
libgpod 0.8.2

thought it was obvious, this works for me, but I did use iso rather than ios sorry.

the update meant for ios7 did not work for ios7 mounts, but did appear to allow mount and unmount of 4.2.1 as posted which may have added confusion. there was no music app to test fully so not sure what value that has.

naturally what works on VL7.0 light on a dell latitude d400 may not work for everyone but I have added three playlists od 20 to 50 tracks and removed one with success so far

the post was really about ios7 on an iphone4 but it appears to be a new common issue in linux and as yet generally unresolved.
