Thanks for the reply. You're the first one to mention using this version of Light, so thought I'd ask. :)

We set one of the goals for Light to fit on a CD, so yes, it does not have everything that Standard has. I am not familiar with Osmo, don't see it in the repo. 

Target audience is admittedly small, but we're sharing what we use, and like, with those who are interested.

Thanks for asking. I did, but switched to Ratpoison later.

As for how is it going, I can use it for all the things that I spend the bulk of my time doing, so it's certainly usable. However, I think it's lacking some of the libraries I use to install some of the other programs I use (is there a version of Osmo which doesn't need gtkspell added in, for example?). Maybe that's why it's the Light version.

Most users probably wouldn't have a problem with that and would be happy with the software Light already comes with, but I'd also like to be able to set up access to my two pendrives and Windows partition when I install the system, as I can in Slackware, Salix and Zenwalk (in fact those two distros just went with the standard Slack install procedure).

I know I can do it by editing fstab, but I can never remember what values to enter into the table and I don't think users should have to (unless you want Vector to be for advanced users only).

Thanks for asking anyway,

CP .

CP, sorry to go off-topic, but you used the current Light iso for install? Did you select IceWM? How is it performing for you?

A quick update; I've just installed the latest testing version of Vector 7.2 Light (B3.1) to my hard drive, and have installed Ratpoison in it. I'm using macondo's configuration file (for which thanks) except I've substituted Esc-F12 for F13, changed the text colour to green and changed the "kill" hotkey from F4 to k.. It makes very good use of the rpws utility, which allows ratpoison to access extra workspaces (three in this case).

Thank you for linking that important message from The Ministry of Truth. Doubleplusgood. Good that BB tells us that Freedom is Slavery.
