See if there's anything in Menu > System > vasm/vasmcc that handles this. I never ran this particular version of VL (I'm assuming 7.0[.1] 64-bit), so I don't know.

If that doesn't pan out,
/sbin/hwclock -u -s

If that fixes it, save the info for next boot:
printf  '# Hardware clock is set to:\n\n%s\n' UTC >/etc/hardwareclock
If the above leaves you with just what you have now,
/sbin/hwclock --localtime -s
printf'# Hardware clock is set to:\n\n%s\n' localtime >/etc/hardwareclock

One or the other should do it. The system time will be properly saved to hardware clock on shutdown and reloaded at next boot.

Wish I had something to offer on rearranging the desktop. Does right-clicking on the background help?

I just yesterday came back to Vector with the VLocity (64-bit) version. It looks good, but somehow I can't change the time, which seems to be set at Greenwich time. I tried "hwclock --utc" from the cli, but nothing happened on my desktop.
Also, how do I unlock the desktop so I can move the icons around?
Sorry if these questions have obvious answers, but I haven't found them yet.

Welcome and thanks for the Statue of Liberty.  Perhaps you could talk the powers that be into giving us another one. The one you gave us is no longer working.

This Pb loading kernel reminded me a previous experience and I decided to burn a CD rather than use unetbootin and it worked flawlessly. I could install GOLD edition.

I am using it now !

Edit : The problem I met came from the livecd installer

@otherthere : The difference in reactivity vs Light edition is important. I'm currently doing an upgrade with gslapt and will see after a reboot what free -m reports as ram usage. Perhaps something to see on the services side...

Edit 2 : I ended by installing LXDE meta - and it makes a big difference as far as speed is concerned ! - So the light edition might be the best solution for ole non-pae machines...

Back to debian. The Gold edition won't boot... pb = kernel/sata...

So light edition install in progress...

Same way for me, tried  lot of distros for this old machine. It has a Pentium M inside so U can try to boot with the forcepae, but it's so slow... I use it for the moment with a debian 8 server + lxde, it's acceptable but it's impossible to listen to music and write a text in Abiword for example, which is frustating.

I'm downloading the gold edition of Vector to give it a try. Perhaps the installation process is more powerfull than the one that is embedded in the Live edition.... experience will tell us

I'll reinstall the light edition if it does'nt work and give here a feedback Smiley
