This looks like a problem in your configuration.  it does say Syntax error on line 143 of your /etc/httpd/httpd.conf.  Looks like the module you should be looking for is ap_hook_session_save.

If thunar is opened as user you can see a devices list ie optical drive additional partitions and usb drives when plugged in and mount and unmount at will.

In terminal su to root and open thunar no devices are listed at all. thus root user has no access to devices in file manager.

E.this may be by design and I am thinking of another system. if so oops

Got the word - "that's just the way it is".

How is this supposed to be installed to a USB Flash Drive so that you can boot from it before attempting an install to a Hard Drive? Is that what you should be able to do?

No, this is not a live media, it is an install media. on newer computers it will require secure boot to be disabled and legacy mode selected as I understand it

alternatively you may install to a virtual box.

Is this mainly for running the XFCE desktop as root, or does it affect a regular user?

The faenza-cupertino icons are missing from the folder in /usr/share/icons but the theme and folders remain

thus if a user selects faenza-cupertino from settings/appearance/icons nothing changes as the icons are missing. the blue folder icons are or have been a Vector standard.

rather than include them in following iso, the option was changed to faenza dark as default but the option remains.

simply adding the icons to the folder solves the issue. however if it is the desire of Vector to revert to classic brown folders after many years of matching Vector blue, then the option should be removed as it is an option that does not work due to the missing icon set.

this affects the user and likely root as well

Doug, good feedback. Thank you. Will pass that on to the devs responsible for the installer.

One suggestion I have for the installation process- on this old emachines M6809 notebook, I had three partitions- Windows XP, Lubuntu 17.04, and Vector Linux LIGHT 7.1, and unallocated space of about 15GB for installation of VL 7.2 x64 RC2. 

I started the installation, and chose 'automatic' for the disk & partition selection, thinking that it would figure out that three partitions are in use, and there's unallocated space, so it will use the unallocated space by default, right?  But NOooooooo..!  the VL install wiped out all the other partitions and created one partition for the OS, much as you'd expect Windows to do. 

Now, it's no big deal- I didn't have anything important in those other partitions.  I just think that the installer, when evaluating the existing partitions, should use the unallocated space for the current install and leave existing partitions alone; in other words, the user might not be aware that an 'automatic' installation will destroy his existing partitions.  To me, the OS install should DO THE LEAST DESTRUCTIVE THING BY DEFAULT.  Or at least warn the user just before partitioning that the option he chose will wipe out all partitions on the disk for the current install.
